Welcome Maisey Yates!

  1. YatesTell us a little about yourself and your books?I’m Maisey, USA Today Bestselling author of Quite A Few romances. I write dark, emotional books for Harlequin Presents with billionaires, set in exotic locales that I hope make you laugh a little and cry a lot. I also write contemporary romances about cowboys set in my home state of Oregon that I hope make you laugh a lot and cry a little.
  1. What drew you to romance in the first place? I found my first romances at Goodwill, mostly Harlequin Presents. I was twenty-one when I read my first one, and that was when I KNEW what I wanted to write. I was drawn to them as a reader, and then to be a romance writer out of that love I had for them.
  1. 3. Dogs or cats? I have both, so that’s a very hard question. But I’ve rarely been without a dog, so it’s probably dog.
  1. Wine or beer? Light or dark / red or white? none of the above. Coffee and Diet Coke. 🙂
  1. Chocolate or other? Chocolate
  1. Beach or mountain? Well, I love the beach, but I live in the mountains. I really love both…
  1. How do you decide on the settings / character focus? All of my books come about so differently. Sometimes a setting inspires me first, sometimes a character. For Part Time Cowboy, I did think a lot about the town before anything else. I love Oregon, I live in Oregon, and I enjoy writing about it. I chose the coast because it has the best of both worlds here — mountains AND the beach.
  1. What do you most admire about your characters? Both of them have to let go of a lot of pain to move on. They have really hard things in their pasts and I think it takes a lot of strength to let go of pain and choose love.
  1. What’s next on tap for you?  (What do we have to look forward to!) Well, more of the Copper Ridge series will be out late May and late July (Brokedown Cowboy and Bad News Cowboy) and in June I have a multi-author serial series launching called The Forbidden series (my contribution is called the Billionaire’s Intern) which is going to be the fun, sexy romance version of a Netflix binge.
  1. What is the one thing you’d like readers to know about you? I like a badger joke, as you’ll see when you read my books.

Publication date: March 31st 2015
Genres: Contemporary, Romance


A one-time bad girl comes home to small-town Oregon in the first in a sexy, heartfelt new series from USA TODAY bestselling author Maisey Yates…

Sadie Miller isn’t expecting any welcome-home parades on her return to Copper Ridge. Least of all from parttimerancher, full-time lawman Eli Garrett. The straight-laced, impossibly hot deputy sheriff glares at her like she’s the same teenage hoodlum who fled town ten years ago. But running from her demons has brought Sadie full circle, ready to make a commitment at last. Not to a man, but to a B and B. On Garrett land. Okay, so her plan has a tiny flaw…

Eli works too hard to let a blonde ball of trouble mess up his town. But keeping an eye on Sadie makes it tough to keep his hands off her. And if she’s so wrong for him, why does being with her feel so right?


USA Today Bestselling author Maisey Yates lives in rural Oregon with her three children and her husband, whose chiseled jaw and arresting features continue to make her swoon. She feels the epic trek she takes several times a day from her office to her coffee maker is a true example of her pioneer spirit.

In 2009, at the age of twenty-three Maisey sold her first book. Since then it’s been a whirlwind of sexy alpha males and happily ever afters, and she wouldn’t have it any other way. Maisey divides her writing time between dark, passionate category romances set just about everywhere on earth and light sexy contemporary romances set practically in her back yard. She believes that she clearly has the best job in the world.
