Welcome and thank you for visiting my web site today! Stay awhile and have a look around.


The last year has been one big whirlwind, starting with Soul Mate's release of Betting on Cinderella--Garrett's story, Book 2 in the Cinderella Romances series--in late October. Swiftly thereafter came The Wild Rose Press release of Duke du Jour--Book 1 in my new Lords in Time series--in mid-January. You can check out both new releases on my Books page.


These happy events were countered late spring with the sad news that my first publisher, Desert Breeze, intended to close their doors on June 30 after ten years of publishing. I will always be grateful to Desert Breeze for giving authors like me a chance at a dream. The execution of this closure temporarily orphaned my first five books: Everglades, Catch of the Day, and the three books of my Mystery Angel Romance series: No Going Back, Angel to the Rescue, and The SEAL's Angel. 


When one door closes, another opens. Thank goodness! In July, I was offered a three-book deal by Soul Mate Publishing for my Mystery Angel Romance series.  All three stories will receive a Soul Mate revision and a fresh new look in the upcoming months with the first release due in November this year. The two remaining stories will release in spring and summer 2018. Yay!


More happy news arrived with the release of Par for Cinderella--Book 3 of the Cinderella Romances series and Aidan's much-requested story--on July 25. Like I said, one big whirlwind...


What's next? I've started writing Earl Away--Dex's story and Book 2 in the Lords in Time series--and I am also putting together scene bullets for Cinderella on the Rocks--Ian's story and Book 4 in the Cinderella Romances series. You'll have to wait to see which story is finished first.


All my series stories can be read as standalones. On my Books page, you can read reviews and sample the first two chapters of each of my releases. I hope you'll try one of my stories, and when you're finished, drop me an email at petiemccarty@gmail.com and let me know what you think. I love hearing from readers!


I wish you happy reading or happy writing -- take your pick.


Sending my best always,
