Cat Shaffer is a native Buckeye who saw the light and moved to Kentucky over 20 years ago. Able to say "Louisville" like a native, she adores living in the land of beautiful horses and fast women…no, wait, it goes the other way around! Away from the keyboard, she's a mother and grandmother, a Red Cross volunteer, and leads her church choir. She lives with a big Sheltie and a gray tabby who keep her humble by reminding her of her place as their servant.
Info: Second romantic suspense novel by Cat Shaffer released by Turquoise Morning Press. Previous release, Kentucky Blues. Cat Shaffer also writes under the pen name, Cammie Eicher.
Dorothea Pfister was in search of breathing room when she ran from her unwanted fiancé and bossy almost-stepmother. She never expected to find herself as the princess of blind dates—or her Prince Charming in the most unexpected of places.
Dorothea Pfister has perfected the role of the dutiful daughter of a wealthy Chicago lawyer. But when she finds herself trapped into accepting the proposal of a man she most definitely does not want to marry, she rebels by hitting the highway.
Rick Rahall figures the assignment will be simple. How much detective work can it take to find a woman whose life is an open book? But finding Dorothea becomes a far greater challenge, especially when she becomes someone new and intriguing.
How can one small town cause Betsey Jones such big problems?
Betsey Jones has one simple desire: to spend a peaceful summer in her hometown of Milford Falls, Michigan, while she decides what to do with the rest of her life. But Betsey hadn’t figured on being blackmailed into competing in the Miss Firecracker contest, mentoring a teen who didn’t want a faux big sister or coming face to face with Quentin Hayes, the cocky jock from her high school years.
Quent knew his editor wasn’t happy with him, but he never expected to be banished to Milford Falls to report on a beauty pageant as punishment. Once there he realizes his past wasn’t quite as he remembered it, Betsey is far different than the usual beauty queen wannabe and that everything he’s always wanted may not be what he really needs.
A NEXT DOOR is a Category Romance
Even small towns hide secrets…
When Lissa Williams loses both her job as editor of a hard-hitting news magazine, and her fiancé, in a one-two punch, she doesn’t plan to compound her troubles by first getting drunk and then into a sexy stranger’s bed. Nor does she expect to wind up in the tiny hamlet of Oslo, West Virginia, three months later, after her best friend is carjacked and left to die. Her shock at realizing that the first person she meets in Oslo is the same sexy stranger who had rocked her world in a single night, is softened by the realization he doesn’t remember her. But how long can she keep things that way when he insists on volunteering as her handyman at the wreck of a house she’s rented?
Folks in Oslo know Nat “Duke” O’Keefe as the man who’s taken over the town’s tow truck service. No one suspects his real job is undercover cop with an elite, multi-state task force investigating a sophisticated auto theft ring financing a global trade in illegal weapons. When a beautiful woman shows up in the two-bit town of Oslo, his boss orders him to cozy up to the town’s newest resident and figure out just what she’s up to. That suits him fine, until the sparks between them light a strange remembrance, a tinder of desire, and danger that may kill them both.

Elise Drummond has never forgotten her first love – and never expected to learn via the grapevine that he was back in Brookville and living with her mother. Sam McCade had broken her heart, and she wasn’t about to let him destroy her mother’s as well. A quick trip back to Kentucky to lay down the law and she could back to the safe life she’d built for herself in Kansas City.
When Sam McCade went on the run in the middle of the night to save his sister from her abusive husband, there was only one person he could trust to help them, Hannah Drummond. He expected the local gossips to have a field day with his return to Brookville, but he never dreamed Elise would roll into town to check out the situation for herself.
And he certainly never imagined that in order to save his sister, Elise would be willing to sacrifice herself as the pawn in a dangerous game of catch the monster when his brother-in-law decides to take back what he wants – no matter who stands in his way.
