Maria Michaels Books

These were the first two books I EVER wrote and they were both published under a small press. As in the weird world of publishing, the second book was actually the first book I ever wrote, but it was the second to be published. I decided to go with a new pen name when I chose to write sexy and sweet contemporary romance, as I didn’t want my clean and wholesome readers to be offended.

These books are not only clean and wholesome (no cuss words or sexual situations of any kind), they also have a Christian, faith-based thread to them. Will there be any more Maria Michaels books in the future?

You never know…

Genesis Harte's Peak Prequel

What happens when you move three thousand miles away but still can’t outrun the nightmare?

Fleeing from haunting memories, former U.S. Marshal Jack Butler winds up next door to his biggest nightmare: an attractive widow and her troubled daughter—a teen who reminds him of a past he’s yet to make peace with.

Maggie Bradshaw is struggling to raise a rebellious teen and to forgive in-laws who betrayed her in her time of greatest need…but her new neighbor is a godsend. Her daughter Lexi needs a positive influence in her life, and a law enforcement officer is the perfect choice.

Unfortunately, Jack isn’t interested in helping…until a stray dog walks into all their lives.

Can God use a grieving daughter and a stray dog with an ulterior motive to bring healing to all?
