    I just finished Once Burned, Twice Spy so now i’m Waiting for book 14. I loved every book and all of the characters and I have to say I’m going to miss them!


    • Hi Anna! I’m so glad you loved the series – that makes my day! I hope you won’t have to stay in withdrawal for too long – I’m about 3/4 of the way through Book 14 and hoping to have a release date soon.

      Thank you for taking the time to come by and comment, and thanks again for your kind words! 🙂

    Just finished the 3-book Omnibus (I think it was called). Nice. I peered through the net looking for the next 3-book bundle and came up with zilch. Oh well, guess I’ll just have to read book by book…and I will!
    Well done! Not too many authors out there who know how to spell and punctuate.


    • Thanks, Karen! I’m completely anal about spelling and punctuation, and when a mistake slips through (as it inevitably does), I wince and hurry off to fix it as soon as possible.

      You’re right: only Books 1, 2, and 3 are available in a boxed set so far. I’m not sure whether I’ll ever release 4, 5, and 6 in an omnibus. Not in the foreseeable future, anyway.

      Thanks for dropping by, and I hope you enjoy the rest of the series if you give it a try! 🙂

    I am in love with this series! I am currently on book 12 and freaking out that I may catch up before book 14 is released!
    I love a good series, and hadnt found a decent one in A LONG TIME! Until I downloaded Never Say Spy! This is by far my favorite series yet!
    Keep them coming!!!!!


    • That’s so great to hear – thanks, Christi! 😀 I’m working as fast as I can on Book 14, but… uh-oh… if you’re already on Book 12, you’ll probably catch up before I finish. *scurries off to write feverishly*

      Thank you for dropping by to encourage me – you gave me my smile for the day!

    Hi Diane…Noelle here! Quite by accident I downloaded the first in the Spy series, and stayed up half the night to finish it! Original kick-ass heroine you have there! I casually mentioned to my husband (who unlike me is not addicted to reading), that he might enjoy the book…kind of an SF take on adventure with a little healthy erotica thrown in. I just downloaded the last of the series for him! He’s hooked for sure….Aydan may be fantasy, but her flaws are real, and who can’t relate to the guns, the fighting arts, and OMG Arnie! i so love this female character who knows which end of the tool works. I’m a woodworker/cabinetmaker, so yay team! Carry on with the good times!


    • Hi Noelle! Hooray, another tool-wielding female – it’s great to “meet” you! I have huge respect for cabinetmakers and finish carpenters – you have FAR more patience with wood than I could ever muster. My woodworking skills run more to framing where I can use my chop saw and nail gun, although I’ve built a few kitchen drawers and pull-out shelves and lazy susans for my corner cabinets… but I made them out of melamine-clad particle board with melamine edge banding because I loathe sanding.

      I’m thrilled to hear that you and your husband both enjoy Aydan and the gang! Arnie is one of my favourite characters to write, so I always get a warm fuzzy when I hear from another Arnie fan.

      Thank you so much for taking the time to come by and comment – you gave me a wonderful boost on a day when I needed some extra motivation! 😀


      • Noelle Cates

        Thanks for writing back! I have a tendency to critique authors…pretty nervy for somebody who has never been published! But I can’t find anything to complain about! As a martial artist and gun nut since childhood, there are so many authors who write well, but with no apparent “heart”. Keep at it. You’re one of the good ones! P.S. Love her cursing! My co-workers over the years have laughed their asses off at some of mine…in two languages no less. Chingada and keep up the good work.


        • Aw, thank you for your kind words! 🙂 And wow, you’re a martial artist, gun nut, cabinetmaker… are you sure you’re not actually Aydan?

          And you made me look up ‘chingada’ – LOL! Always good to have my vocabulary expanded.

    I also found your spy series through bookbub,and I love the story lines and characters. Ayden is so brave, although she wouldn’t admit to that. She just wants to get the job don so she can get back to her real life. And Kane and Hellhound are so intriguing.I’m ready for book #3.


  6. Pam Brecheisen

    I read “Never Say Spy” and liked it so much I had to get “The Spy Is Cast”. Aydan is phenominal! She is NOT a whimpy girl or a damsel in distress! And she is sexy with a bit of modesty with some lude and crude thrown in there. I will be getting the rest of the books, you can count on it! I retired from an airline so I read a lot. I was rooting foe Kane as the love interest but now, I am glad she went with Hellhound. Love these stories!!


    • Thanks, Pam – that makes my day! I’m pumped to hear that you enjoyed Never Say Spy and moved on to The Spy Is Cast. I have so much fun writing Hellhound – I’m always pleased when he sneaks ahead in the popularity contest. I love Kane, too; but Hellhound’s sense of humour is a nice foil to Kane’s passion and intensity. 🙂

      Thank you for taking the time to come by and comment, and I hope you enjoy the rest of the series if you decide to give it a try!


  7. Brenda Chenger

    I am now on the third book of your ‘spy’ series and I have to say these books have totally hooked me 🙂 I am a contract bookkeeper working in the Calgary and surrounding areas and I am NOT a spy lol! It is so interesting to read about Aydan’s adventures in areas that are so completely familiar. I fully intend to purchase the rest of the series as they make me laugh out loud, cry (Book 2 when I though Kane was dead) and identify with some of your characters. I have a cousin-in-law who is 6’9″, ugly as sin, rides a huge Harley, scares the bejesus out of my friends but has the kindest heart of anyone I’ve ever known. Oh, and also, I have an online sex toy client ‘O-zone’ which sometimes makes me roll my eyes and blush, lol! Keep writing and I’ll keep reading. THANKYOU!


    • Hi Brenda –
      It’s great to hear from a Calgarian! Wow, you have ‘way too many commonalities with Aydan – are you sure you’re not just very deep undercover? (So deep even you don’t know about it…?) 😉

      I’m pumped that you’re enjoying the series – that makes my day! And your cousin-in-law sounds awesome (in every sense of the word). I’ve been thinking I’d like to start a “Lookalikes” page where people could post photos of themselves dressed up as the characters – it sounds as though your cousin-in-law would make a perfect Hellhound. And O-zone: That’s too funny! I wonder if the owner’s name is Lola.

      Thank you so much for taking the time to come by and brighten my day; and I hope you enjoy the rest of the series!


  8. Bob

    I just stumbled onto book 1 (thank you Bookbub!; I truly could not put it down. Your characters are so real life and are complete with human flaws. Add in the humor and suspense – makes for terrific reading. I can’t wait to continue learning more about Arden.


    • Thank you for your kind words, Bob! It makes my day to hear that the characters rang true for you. I’m pumped that you enjoyed Aydan’s first adventure, and I hope you enjoy Book 2 if you decide to give it a try. Thanks for visiting and commenting! 🙂


  9. Dee Lewis

    Diane, I just stumbled into you yesterday and devoured book one and am starting book 2. Ayden is so badass. No drama. And she knows herself. A mature woman that takes no prisoners. And every man that meets her can’t help but fall a little in love with her. He’ll I know I did.r


    • Hi Dee! I’m so glad you enjoyed Aydan – I love writing her! Characters with lots of life experience (and associated baggage) are so much more fun to write than young ’uns. 😉 Thank you for taking the time to drop by and comment, and I hope you enjoy Book 2!

    JUST FINISHED Book #1. I just loved it and I am looking forward to reading them all
