Will she risk her heart to catch a thief?

Is that why she can’t even trust what her own heart tells her?

Includes love scenes.

More About the Author

Here's my secret to a happy life: by hook or by crook, find some way to make your living doing something you love to do. Worked for me. I've always loved to read and I was always being told not to waste my time with my head in a book. So I found a way to make reading--"research, you know"--necessary to my line of work.

Voila! Happiness!

And there's more to it than that. Travel. Gotta go. Gotta experience those settings and find out what really goes on in those exotic locales. Feel that ambiance! Lean back and watch the sunset with that tall, cool drink in your hand. Research. Aaaah!

Now when you write romances, people always ask about the...ahem...intimate stuff. Do you research that? And my answer is always--only with my adorable, supportive, loving husband. Another foundational requirement for happiness.

The kids began to arrive just about the same time I began selling to publishers, so I mostly carried a baby in one arm, a book in another. Then it was a baby in my lap, another climbing up my leg, and my free hand on the keyboard of a computer. By the time the fourth boy debuted, I had a rule that no one was allowed to bother me during writing time unless there was blood--a rule seldom honored, but at least I tried. And I was there to watch them grow. For me, that was another pillar of my happiness. At least most of the time.

All those years--all those books--all those children. The kids are launched, the years are happy memories, and the books--I'm working on them again!

The first publisher I sold to was Jove's Second Chance at Love. Silhouette Desire came next, then Dell Candlelight Ecstasy, Loveswept, Harlequin, Zebra, Harper. Lately I've been writing for Harlequin Romance as Raye Morgan. So many fun books! I've picked out some of the best of them which I'm rewriting into a series called Destiny Bay following a family called the Carringtons. I haven't been this excited for a long time--finding ways to adjust the characters into this new family, finding ties between them and emotions that just can't be denied--everything feels so new again.

I hope you'll give them a try--and that you'll be happy you did!

I'd love to have you visit me at my blog--

See you soon!

5.0 out of 5 stars WHAT A BEAUTIFUL LOVE STORY 15 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This is the last in the destiny bay series.. I loved the story of Shelly and Harper she thinks he is a con man..all she wants is her cat back... can she trust her judgement when he comes to him can she trust her own heart ?? I was drawn in from the first pages.. the adventure came when you were not expected it..... Helen has a way of making you feel your part of the story and the Characters in it.. I laughed so much at the antics.. I hung to the edge of my bed with the angst..you will have to read the book to know the end of the story.. I detest spoilers.. next is the baby series.. Thank goodness we will catch up with them all again looking forward to reading them....

3.0 out of 5 stars Michael Was A Trip Literally and Figuratively 14 Dec 2013
By Ileana - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Shelly is a shy psychologist. She leads with reason mostly and not the heart. She has been betrayed romantically in her past, which tends to play a role in how her relation with Michael develops when they meet.

Michael is a lawyer who works undocover. He deals mostly with outing and capturing con artists. He lives for excitement and is extremely charming. He is also hilarious in that horrible corny type of way that still manages to engage an audience, whether that be Shelly or us readers.

I loved that Michael seemed to expose the witty and sexy side of Shelley. And I loved how she exposed his need to dominate and capture her heart. Even if that meant stalking her when she went shopping for groceries or buying her a cake at the salon under the guise that it was her birthday when it wasn't.

Their relationship was a self-denial banter that was a bit frustrating but hilarious and heartwarming all the same.

The romance was lighthearted but also took on very serious moments which added depth to the story, their sole characters. You were able to see them grow as characters, even if at times they acted foolishly in terms of their desires. I felt the their epiphanies could have happened a lot sooner. There were times that ths storylagged a little, but all in it was good humorous solid romance if a little unlikely at times. The supporting characters seemed highly undeveloped except for Robin and I suppose that has to do with this being the last book in the series.

I enjoyed this read. Humor was A+. It recieved a three star rating simply because I felt some scenes were unecessary. I think if this story had been slightly shorter, it would have made it a lot stronger.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book 20 Oct 2013
By All Night Books - Published on Amazon.com

This is the final book in the Carrington's of Destiny Bay series by Helen Conrad....luckily she wrote a Destiny Bay Baby series next which I am looking forward to reading. This story follows Shelly, the quite one between her, Rick and Kathy. She lives the normal everyday life, so when loves comes along in the form of the oh so eccentric Michael Hudson she was in no way prepared for that. Its a great story that concludes the story perfectly.

Not the Marrying Kind was a cute quick read.

Michael is a man who is used to getting in and out of a situation rather quickly, but all of that changed when he had a chance encounter with Shelley. Shelley sees Michael as a real puzzle that she just can't quite figure out. She has no clue what this man is about. Michael realizes that he really wants to see more of Shelley, but does not her want to be involved in any of the danger that goes along with his job.

Whatever will these two people do? Will they take a chance on the chemistry that they seem to share or will they part ways once Michael's job is done?

Take the time to get to know Michael and Shelley and see what happens.
