The Character Couch is a reader-focused website where fans can go to nominate a favorite couple that they’d like to see go into a “light” therapy session—as fans did with Harper and Caleb. I say "light" because these aren't angst-ridden sessions, but fun and entertaining, certainly poignant at times. It is the brainchild of Tracy Tappan whose "therapist" persona Regan Malloy is a Family and Child therapist in Midtown, Manhattan. Keep this name in your databanks. You'll be seeing it crop up in Captured.

Harper and Caleb are on the couch. Yep, anyone who knows me as an author knows that I don't spare my characters conflict. That's the only way they learn the truth in their souls and the deep abiding love that builds and lasts between them. Head over to the session and comment. Check below. There are a couple of prizes and also a request. Would love to know your thoughts.

As anyone who is a fan of my novellas, you all know that the marriage and honeymoon can be rough for my couples.

Captured will be here before you know it. Here are the deets:

A companion novella to Collared, Going to the Dogs, #4. Your reading enjoyment would be enhanced if you've already read Collared.

Harper and Caleb are getting married and for the most part nothing has really changed for Harper. She’s still uber rich, her life filled with charities and smoozing. But instead of loneliness and protective walls, she’s opened her heart to the best and most wonderful thing that has happened to her—gorgeous and tough, Detective. Caleb Shaw.

But Caleb’s once normal, blue collar life has been significantly changed. With Harper’s money taking care of everything, what is there for him to provide her? Especially when he hears it bantered around that he’s a “kept” man. Harper dismisses that kind of talk as nonsense and urges Caleb to not worry about it. But even as he tries to grow a thick skin, his pride causes rifts. Will Caleb let Harper’s wealth destroy the deep and abiding love they found?

Diamonds are a dog’s best friend.

Harper Sinclair discovers that her champion, award-winning standard poodle, Ch. Edgewood Sky High Blue is missing her $50,000 diamond dog collar that was given to her by Harper's eccentric, indulging grandmother along with valuable pieces of jewelry. Harper calls the robbery division of the NYPD and reports the thefts. The detective they send is surly and tough with a pair of brown eyes that make even this calm, cool socialite's lungs claw for air.

Rough and tumble Detective Caleb Shaw has better things to do than run over to the penthouse of a frigging socialite to find a frigging collar for a frigging pampered poodle---award winning or not. He has real cases to solve, but when he gets a load of the poodle's owner, his interest in the case...heats up. Satin sheets or not, he wants Harper. But there is more to this robbery than the dog collar. Has someone close to Harper pulled an inside job?

Can a lovely socialite collar a hard-boiled detective or are they worlds apart?
