My Life.


Dear Reader,

You found me! I'm so glad you're here. Like in real life, I've found my journey to settling down has included the typical phase from apartment, to starter home, to dream home. If you've been following me online from the start, you knew me over on my blogger page--a spot I still hold dear. My starter home was way less fun than the blogger apartment and loads less pretty than my new home here. Please come in, look around, see what I've done with the place. Leave me a note if you like it. Take a book with you when you go! After all, that's why we're all here, right?

My love of romance started with Susan Elizabeth Phillips and Nobody's Baby But Mine just as 2000 got underway. Since then, the one thing I can count on in a book I love to read is a strong bond of family and some serious passion. Sometimes that bond is made up of a bunch military men, occasionally it's a bond made by similar circumstances, and then there's the family saga where blood is thicker than water. No matter what, my stories are inspired by those connections. I know, without a doubt, that you will find yourself in my stories because I love to tell a story about real life. Happily-ever-after is something that happens every day--at home, across the street, in our backyards. We just have to take all the crap we live with and reduce it down to the bottom line. Love.

Love comes to me every day when I look at my children, when I kiss my husband good-bye in the morning, and when I call my best friend from high school and share life. Let's share life and love through my stories. You'll find my books are on the steamy side because that's what I love to read! The importance of consummate love goes beyond human understanding and to leave it out of the story invalidates its effects--good and bad.

To keep up on what's coming next, sign up for my newsletter. Lots of giveaways, ARC/review copies, and all the fun extra tidbits about what's going on in my life. I love to chat with people--readers and friends. You can find me on Facebook or Twitter or Pinterest.

With Love,

Beth Rhodes
