Hi, come on in. Stroll through. I hope there’s a little something here for everybody, from romance to suspense to paranormal to epic poetry (okay, I was joking about that last one) published not only by me, but my evil twin, Kathleen Korbel. Not only that, I invite you to share my love for research and for travel. Check out the pages, which I’ve just updated and be sure to friend me on Facebook.
Meet Nick—an ice cream peddling undercover-cop, Pete—a war correspondent trying to fulfill his Aunt’s last wishes, Crowne Prince Eric who’s in a bind, and the feisty gals who grab their attention, then claim their hearts. Three complete Contemporary Romance Novels in one Boxed Set.
THE ICE CREAM MAN: Divorcee Jenny Lake suspects the new ice cream man, Nick Barnett, is selling more than bompops off his truck. Nick suspects Jenny is more than the frazzled mom she portrays, as all evidence makes her suspect number one in his check-kiting case. Nick also knows a cop should never fall in love with his suspect.
ISN’T IT ROMANTIC: Childhood friends, Pete Cooper and Brooke Ferguson spent their evenings watching TV with Pete’s Aunt Mamie. Now Pete is a famous cable news anchor who earned his stripes in war zones, and Brooke watches Pete on the same old TV in the same small town. Then Aunt Mamie passes away, and Pete and Brooke must set out on a road trip to fulfill Mamie’s last wishes.
A PRINCE OF A GUY: When New Yorker Casey Phillips visits the tiny country of Moritania to see where her ancestors came from, she’s mistaken for a princess, and Crown Prince Eric von Lieberhaven insists that Casey—a dead ringer for the missing royal—step into the princess’s shoes until she can be freed.
Divorcee Jenny Lake suspects the new ice cream man, Nick Barnett, is selling more than bompops off his truck. The neighbors think Nick is dealing drugs.
Nick fears Jenny is more than the frazzled mom of two she portrays, as all evidence makes her suspect number one in his check-kiting case.
Of course, Nick also knows a cop should never fall in love with his suspect. And a man who can’t tolerate kids shouldn’t love a woman who wants a houseful. But somehow he keeps forgetting as he does everything possible to prove the evidence wrong.
RITA Award, Winner

Praise for Twice Tempted:
RT Book Reviews TOP PICK 4 1/2 Stars
“Dreyer never skimps on delivering a hard-to-put-down read, peppered with
remarkable, memorable characters and fascinating historical detail.”
“Dreyer’s fifth Drake’s Rakes sizzles with romance enhanced by intricately woven tales of espionage.”
John Charles, Booklist
“Dreyer’s brilliantly complex characters, addictively tart sense of humor, and flair for
crafting sizzling sexual chemistry once again prove to be irresistible, and her skillful incorporation of the contributions of Regency women to science provides the perfect historical counterpoint to the story’s danger-rich plot.”
ONCE A RAKE available now!
It’s Ian Ferguson’s story, and he’s in trouble. While you are here watch my video and take a look at what’s ahead for Drake’s Rakes.
Praise for Once A Rake:
RT Reviews Top Pick 4 1/2 Stars
“Dreyer is a master storyteller who merges intrigue and passion perfectly. With characters you can see and almost touch, action/adventure, dark secrets, vicious spies, tenderness, compassion and deep love, Once a Rake is hard to put down and difficult to forget. Happily, it is just the beginning of a new trilogy in Dreyer’s Drake’s Rakes series.”
Library Journal Starred Review
“Exquisite writing, historical accuracy, a clever plot, and complex, enthralling, walk-off-the-page characters make this another fascinating gem for the award-winning Dreyer.”
