About Calisa Rhose

I'm a mother of three daughters and wife to a wonderful man of 30+ years. I'm also an avid seamstress, polymer clay artisan and diehard crafter always coming up with things to make with, and for, my six granddaughters. Check out my craft site when you have a moment. I'm a published author of sensual romance. I write about stubborn men and women who don't take no for an answer, and there's always that golden HEA. Cowboys and first responders are my favorite contemporary heroes to write about. My light paranormal heroes are strong men ready to protect their women--not that they need protecting.
