Searching for Ever After

have been in my writing cave working on more and more manuscripts, but I’m taking a break today to share the cover of one of my two February releases. Wedding Tails is a project I’ve undertaken with some of my Sourcebooks sisters, and it started when we all wondered what would happen if we each wrote a novella based in our story worlds (mine is the Deadly Force world) where there was a wedding and a dog and many of our favorite characters. And it would be released on Valentine’s Day!

Since book 3 in my Deadly Force series, In Search of Truth, has a dog named Nicholas Trott and ends with the engagement of Zack and Allison, I knew I had to write their wedding story. I also need them to be married in the next book in the series, A Promise at Midnight (Alex and Maddie’s story). (Oh, the problems of authors writing a long-standing series!) So I wrote Searching for Ever After, a story where Zack and Allison get married but not before all sorts of things happen to try and and stop them. I don’t want to give away any spoilers, but there will be troubles as well as laughs, and maybe a run-in with men who bow.

So today I’m sharing the cover as well as the preorder link for Wedding Tails. The book will release on Valentine’s Day, in both paperback and e-book. I hope you love the cover–and the stories–as much as we do!

From USA Today and award-winning authors come seven wedding tales featuring characters from your favorite Sourcebooks’ series that prove all you need is love…and a dog.

Sharon's Deadly Force romantic suspense series is set in a world with scary assassins who bow before killing, sexy Green Berets seeking redemption, and smart, sassy heroines who save them all. It’s also a world where, since Sharon is slow and clumsy, her chances of making it out alive would be slim. 

She also writes small-town contemporary romances, gothic romantic mysteries set in the sultry south, and Christmas stories. Because nothing brings out the romantic feels more than stories set during the holidays.

She’s repped by Deidre Knight and Kristy Hunter of The Knight Agency, and you can find out more at
