What Else is New? I wrote a new historical romance! This full-length novel has a Gothic feel and will be out sometime in summer of 2018. I have more ideas for a new gay romance (or two), another historical, and I’m revising a new paranormal contemporary romance. I also finished the first draft of a new horror novella and I’m working on another spooky story. Be sure to follow me on social media (links below) for the latest updates & news.

Sharing Some New Reviews!

My historical/pioneer romance, Loving a Wild Stranger, has received several great reviews. Here are excerpts & links to read more.

Publisher’s Weekly says:
“Wilkins (Trust with Hearts) has created a wonderfully sweet romance. The fantastic tension between the two characters as they grapple with their sudden newlywed status and the awkwardness that comes with marrying a perfect stranger keeps this story emotional and realistic as they fall in love. The story flows nicely and does not rush the romance. Wilkins keeps readers interested with strong, complex characters. Fans of pioneer romances will enjoy this one.”

Long & Short Romances says:
4 Stars! This book has the potential to be made into a movie. This book took over my life. I ignored everyone and everything. The writing style made the entire book come to life as if I were there. The plot was really great. Nothing was going to interrupt my time with Luther. I envied the heroine, Michele. Loving a Wild Stranger reminded me of the 1970s T.V. show, “Grizzly Adams” – one of my favorite childhood television shows.

The writing style made the entire book come to life as if I were there. It was clever how Ms. Wilkins incorporated many plot threads and weaved them all together. I recommend this book and will be keeping it on my keeper shelf! I would recommend reading Loving a Wild Stranger while relaxing by a lake!”

Beauty & the Bigfoot got a 4 Coffee Cup Review from Coffeetime Romance!

4 coffee cups! You will not be disappointed.Tara and Kyani’s story is unusual but entertaining. There were a few times I laughed out loud at the path this love story took. The book is an unusual spin on paranormal but one worth reading. Give Beauty & the Bigfoot a read – you will not be disappointed.”

The San Francisco Review of Books reviewed my writing book, You Can Write—Really! 

“The author is positive and up-beat as she encourages her readers. There are writing exercises in each section and I found these exercises to be interesting, with very specific suggestions made in ways that encourage the reader’s creativity. The chapters flow well, and the book is captivating, truly aimed at bringing out the best in the reader.”

My contemporary romance, Trust with Hearts, also got a great review from Romancing the Book.

“There are family and friends, sorrow, loss, sadness, fear, anger, hurt, angst, tears, laughter, happiness, lots of loving and ultimately love. There is a nice flow to the story and I loved Curtis’ memories of growing up with his grandmother and what an important role she played in his life even now. Wilkins is a new to me author and I look forward to reading more of her books in the contemporary and historical romance genres – two that I especially love.”
