Born and raised on the outskirts of Toronto, Ontario Amy fled the big city to settle down with the country boy of her dreams. When she's not furiously typing away at her computer, she's a mom to three wonderful children, who have given her another job as a taxi driver.

A voracious reader, she was given her first romance novel by her grandmother who shared her penchant for a hot romance. From that moment, Amy was hooked by the magical worlds, handsome heroes and sigh worthy romances contained in the pages and she knew what she wanted to be when she grew up.

Life got in the way, and after the birth of her second child, she decided to pursue her dream of becoming a romance author.

Amy loves to hear from readers. It makes her day, in fact. You can find out more about Amy at:


Dare she place her heart in his care?

Dr. Charlotte James will do anything to save her best friend's unborn baby--even turn to her ex-fiancé, Dr. Quinn Devlyn! Their relationship ended badly after the loss of their own little miracle, and while Charlotte trusts the hotshot neonatal surgeon's amazing ability, she doesn't trust the man who buries his emotions in work....

A career-threatening injury has left Quinn at a crossroads in his life. But, working with Charlotte again in the snowbound beauty of her isolated community practice, he realizes he's been given a second chance to prove that both the baby and Charlotte's fragile heart will be safe in his hands....

Damn. What've I done?

Dr. Charlotte James had been watching the arrivals board in the Iqaluit airport for some time. She was so focused on arrivals she didn't even notice the people coming and going around her. A watched pot never boiled, or so the old saying went, but she couldn't help it. This was probably the longest she'd ever stood still. In her job there was no time to stand still. In fact, she hated it. She could be doing so many other things. Filing, for instance.

Not that she particularly liked filing. She preferred her organized chaos. However, there were a ton of files on her desk, and Rosie had been pestering her for a week to put them away. Instead, she was waiting here for his flight to arrive.

"Flight 207 from Ottawa now arriving at gate three."

The past, when it came to Dr. Quinn Devlyn, was where it needed to be: firmly locked away. She'd moved on and she had no doubt his life had, too.

He was, after all, at the top in his chosen specialty, and she was right where she'd always wanted to be.

This time Quinn Devlyn wouldn't blindside her or suck her into some crazy off-kilter distracting, albeit passionate, love affair.

No, siree.

Her life was good. Not perfect but, then, whose was? Charlotte was happy. Courage.

She spun around and saw the plane taxi in on the small airstrip, blending in with the stark, white landscape of Canada's High Arctic. The only color out there was the brightly painted houses that dotted the landscape. Her pulse thundered between her ears.

He's here.
Author Interview:

In your opinion, what makes a great hero?

A hero that is willing to grow and change for the woman he loves. One who will fight every obstacle for love.

Do you prefer strong women for heroines, or the ‘damsel in distress’ type?

Strong women. I’m not a fan of heroines who are fainting and fawning and helpless. My heroine in Safe in His Hands lost everything, but she picked herself up and went on with her life.

What item, or items, is absolutely necessary to your writing mojo?

Diet Coke. Though I really am trying to break this habit. It’s not working, though I’ve cut back. I really have.

Do you have any rituals for writing or special locations that you prefer to inhabit when you’re writing?

Besides the Diet Coke thing, I have to have background noise and I tend to work at night. I’m a night owl. Though with all three kids going in school full time this year, I’m hoping that my night owl tendencies will end.

What is one place in the world you’d love to visit which you haven’t already been?

The arctic. Nunavut, Northwest Territories or Yukon. Doesn’t matter. I want to go.

What do you do when you’re not writing?

Playing with my kids, reading, crafts and I’m a Guide leader. I used to be a Brownie leader, but I’ve moved off to Guides to a very large unit. A lot more camping.
