Kenzie’s Korner

Author Bio:

Kenzie Michaels is the ‘wild child’ of author Molly Daniels. A devout chocoholic, she has three children and is ‘Aunt Molly’ to the entire neighborhood. Her husband of 30 years has learned to watch out when the characters in her head take over and to not get upset when the words are flowing and all concept of time is lost. (LOL!)

All She Ever Wanted:  Released May 19, 2009

When Amber Johnson agrees to fill in as a last-minute chef of a dinner party, she is surprised to learn the client is none other than her ex-boyfriend, Marc Denton. The kitchen sizzles with their unfinished business; will the flames of love reignite, or will Marc’s scheming father succeed in keeping them apart?

Marc and Amber are furious when they discover lies that have kept them apart for three years. With Amber by his side again, will Marc find the courage to stand up to his father and hold on to his true love?

Received Night Owl Romance Reviewer’s Top Pick!

I thoroughly enjoyed this story by Ms. Michaels. I loved her characters and the storyline was fun and enjoyable. I love how the story unfolded and how Amber and Marc were now both involved in a rude awakening because of the outcome that happened three years ago. I was hoping they could overcome the issues of the past and use it as a solid foundation to possibly start something back up again. The author is a great storyteller and I would definitely recommend this story to other readers. Well done, Ms. Michaels!

Wild At Heart:

Available at Amazon 

Angela Clayborn discovers the man she sent to prison nearly two years before, has been granted an early release.  Torn between wanting to see him and fearful if she does, sparks fly when Steve Blumenthal appears in her gift shop and later at her condo.  Will Angie free her heart from its icy prison?  Has Steve really turned his life around, or is it a hoax?

Meanwhile, in Colorado on business, Angie’s current boyfriend, Brad Morrison, is wrestling with his own call of the wild.  He’s met unconventional, sexy Emma Nichols, who runs not only her own riding stable, but helps out with her family’s woodworking store in EstesPark.  Emma resents Brad’s offer to help during a family crisis, but eventually discovers that Fate sometimes sends people down unexpected paths to love.  Can Brad tame a wildcat?  Or will Emma settle for the safe path?

July 2011:

Received 5 Cups from Coffee Time Romance!

“Michaels interweaves the lives of Angela, Brad and Emma without giving a second thought. Angela is still in love with Steve and hasn’t been able to tell Brad about her and Steve’s past. The reconnection between Angela and Steve is realistic, heartfelt and genuine while Emma and Brad’s developing love interest is paced perfectly for this short novella. 

I applaud Michaels for opening a door to having duo heroines in Wild At Heart, not a storyline often visited. I recommend this book to romance readers, lovers and those looking for a quick read to satisfy a day of love.”

And this comment from a recent reader:

“OMG, Wild At Heart… just read it… LOVED IT!!! Kenzie. you rock… felt like I was there, absorbing every word, i stayed up til 3am to finish, I think the only thing that would have been great was if Ethan would have gotten with Lori after Rehab lol.”


Appetite for Desire:  

Available at Amazon 

I’m currently considering adding this to the Anderson Chronicles print version, coming in 2017.

Dustin James is shocked to learn that the sexy blonde he met two days earlier is none other than his father’s caterer, and who also works at the country club he’s recently joined.  When he can’t keep his hands off of her, is her food all he cares about, or is it love?

Courtney Bright defies the rules by admitting her attraction to the new customer at the club.  But when she realizes she’s also lost her heart to his kids, will she take a chance on love, or is her job too important to her?

Teacher’s Pet: 

I have signed on with Stardust/Erotes Press for a re-boot of this story! 

Available NOW at Amazon in e-format

Natalie Collier thinks she’s successfully put Brian Vellinger out of her mind. After harboring a secret crush all through high school and into college, she is both alarmed and thrilled when Brian makes his intentions known at their 25th class reunion. But will she she succeed in softening his casual, ‘sex only’ policy, or will she end up just another notch on his belt? And how will this affect her pharmaceutical career in Boise, Idaho?

Off The Clock(poss. sequel to CR):  Released May 2013

Austin Harmon is intrigued by his quiet, efficient new administrative assistant. Why does she have an obsession with her watch, and what does she do after hours?

(Written  fall 2008 as an idea for a friend’s anthology, but no one else has started theirs yet. I discovered I’d used the wrong setting, and now CR seems to have made it part of its storyline!)
