The Sweetest Taboo AT LAST

Earlier this month, I hit PUBLISH on my *last reverted backlist title. Save for my three books with Berkley Heat (Dalton Gang) and my five books with Montlake Romance (Hope Springs) I now control the rights to **everything I’ve written … that everything being a total of ***59 novels, novellas, and short stories.


You can now get THE SWEETEST TABOO at the following retailers:





This was my fourth book for Harlequin Blaze and launched the Men To Do series. It was published in 2002 so I went back in and gave the characters updated tech and switched out some pop culture references. For the most part, though, it’s still the book I wrote SEVENTEEN YEARS AGO. It’s so hard to believe it’s been that long!!

It’s been my bestselling book for Harlequin and apparently the Germans love it as it’s been reprinted there three times I think, and with some pretty steamy covers!

*I do have rights back to The Icing on the Cake but am not sure if I’m going to republish that one in digital. Should I?

**Not The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Writing Erotic Romance or This Time Next Year or the online reads I wrote for Harlequin.

***I swear it’s 60. What am I forgetting?


Use the menu bar up above to explore the books in all my series as well as those novels that stand on their own! And no matter how old a book is, authors love for readers to leave reviews! The digital world means every book is out there waiting to be discovered, and word of mouth is invaluable! Thank you!

Out Now!


A native Texan, Alison sold one of the first of her over fifty published works live on the “Isn’t It Romantic?” episode of CBS 48 Hours. The resulting book, CALL ME, was an RT Book Reviews finalist for Best First Series Book. Her book, A LONG, HARD RIDE, part of Harlequin’s 60th Anniversary celebration, was nominated for an RT Reviewer’s Choice Award for Best Harlequin Blaze of 2009. STRIPTEASE, a 2003 release from Harlequin Blaze and part of her popular GIRL GEAR series, was also an RT Reviewer’s Choice Award nominee.

Her 2005 Kensington Brava release, THE BEACH ALIBI, was a nominee for the national Quill Awards, sponsored by Reed Business Information. She is also the author of THE COMPLETE IDIOT’S GUIDE TO WRITING EROTIC ROMANCE, and her 2009 novel, NO LIMITS, was a Cosmopolitan Magazine Red Hot Read. THE SECOND CHANCE CAFE, the first in her Hope Springs series from Amazon Montlake, was a 2014 Romance Writers of America RITA finalist in contemporary romance. And the third of her Dalton Gang books from Berkley Heat, UNFORGETTABLE, won the 2014 Bookseller’s Best Award for erotic romance.

If there’s a better career than writing, she doesn’t want to know as she’s quite happy putting pen to paper in the backyard of her Texas home. That’s where she lives with her pack of rescue dogs and a colony of not-quite-feral cats, battling the heat each year to raise a bumper crop of tomatoes and jalapeno peppers. Daily swims with her flat-coated retriever, Duke, make the summers bearable.

Under her own name, she writes gritty procedural thrillers, some set in the fictional world of the Union Park PD, as well as a post-apocalyptic sci-fi adventure series, The Clearsky Chronicles, the latter co-authored with her late husband, Walt. Click here for more information!!


Loved this book. Love, murder, deceit, trauma, family, cops, and priest. This one has it all.
