ChristyneB_profile2_07.2015Welcome to my website!

Please feel free to take a look around and stop by often to see what’s happening.

I write contemporary romances full of life, love, a hint of laughter and perhaps a dash of danger too. I love the challenge of the boy-meets-girl, boy-loses-girl, boy-gets-girl-back and the journey of joy and hardship two people go through on their way to finding true love.

Oh, and there has to be a ‘happily ever after’ or I’m just not satisfied!

Celebrating 2015!

ChristyneB_profile_07.2015While in New York City this past July to attend the 2015 Romance Writers of America® annual conference I was also celebrating a pretty special birthday (the big 5-0!) and the milestone of my thirteenth book being published!

Wanting to do something extra special to mark the occasions, and as a lover of all things vintage, I knew how to do both when I stumbled across images from a photography studio that were stunning. And what little girl hasn’t dreamed of playing fashion model for a day?

Shameless Photography made me feel like a queen and I love the vintage inpsired final images. Click on over to the Photo Gallery if you’d like to see them!  

4 Stars for Destined To Be A Dad!


DestinedToBeADad_US_Sept2015Very happy DESTINED TO BE A DAD received 4 Stars from RT Book Reviews!

When a boisterous 15-year-old Brit shows up on Liam Murphy’s doorstep announcing she’s his daughter, he’s shocked — and skeptical. This is not Missy Dobbs’ plan. Years ago, she was a foreign exchange student and she and Liam were classmates and first loves. Now, her precocious daughter can’t wait to tell him for herself: it’s a girl!

Butler delivers excitement and empathy, super Wyoming settings and great characters in this second-chance romance. Her Brit-isms are spot-on, and the formation of the new family inspiring and her handling of the delicate dynamics of this large cast is excellent.


The Last-Chance Maverick – Vanessa’s Bucket List!

One of things I loved best about writing THE LAST-CHANCE MAVERICK is the bucket list that my heroine, Vanessa created as a young girl with her best friend. They add more to the list as adults, especially after seeing how many items they’d managed to complete, but then…well, Vanessa is now on a mission to cross off each remaining item. And she’s decided Jonah Dalton is just the man to help her!

The front of the book shares a sneak peak, but here’s the entire list. It was fun to try to get as many of these as possible into the story!


4 and 1/2 Stars for The Last Chance Maverick

TLCM_cover10.2014I’m so excited that my October release, THE LAST-CHANCE MAVERICK, received 4.5 Stars from RT Book Reviews!

Vanessa Brent sees Montana as a chance to find her muse, keep promises and start over after the tragic loss of her BFF. She doesn’t expect a sexy architect to open her eyes to passion and help complete her bucket list. Architect Jonah Dalton couldn’t have Rust Creek Falls fast enough when his marriage ended; now he’s back and a beautiful artist is making him think of the future.

Butler’s heartfelt tearjerker exhilarates. Her expressive narrative tells the fateful tale of her lovelorn hero and grieving, talent-blocked heroine’s rock road to love. The first kiss is sensational, the banter playful and the love scenes intense.
