Welcome to my brand spanking new web site! I hope you’ll find it easier to navigate.

Whether I’m writing about a contemporary hero–or heroine–who happens to be a federal agent or a sexy cowboy from the Old West, I hope you’ll find a story you love. Love and danger go hand in hand in my work, so be prepared for some highly charged love scenes. No matter which genre, a dose of family drama enriches the story.

Running from a killer, Miranda is fighting for her and her son’s life—and the chance to love again. Love on the Run by Marie-Nicole Ryan

Miranda Raines believes she’s found a safe haven in Oxford, England, until Scotland Yard’s DCI David French knocks on her door with terrifying news: her ex-husband, a convicted murderer, has escaped from prison and he’s coming for her.

For years, Miranda has harbored a secret passion for the driven Chief Inspector. With no other choice, she has to trust him. She just hopes she can guard her heart, at least as well as he guards her.

After thwarting her ex’s first attack, David spirits Miranda and her young son out of England, and the three of them end up on the run across Europe. David has no intention of falling in love again, but with each passing day Miranda awakens emotions he thought long dead.
