Breaking His Rules

Breaking His Rules

Winner of the Tule Publishing 'Pillow Talk' contest!

When I landed the best bartending job in downtown Chicago, the rules were as clear as the Grey Goose martini I mixed for him. Don’t sleep with the patrons. I had no problem with that. Money didn’t impress me. But Damon Baxter’s eyes did. Midnight blue, just like the name of his nightclub. The way they undressed me made me consider risking the most sought after job in the service industry. Nailing the position had been hard. Obeying the rules? Even harder.

A word from R.C.

Welcome to my website! 

I hope you enjoy exploring the pages and learning more about my romance novels. There’s a little something for every romance lover ranging from sweet to erotic…contemporary to historical…from light-hearted to suspenseful…sometimes a dash of paranormal…and usually a good dose of humor. My romances always feature strong-willed heroines to challenge irresistible alpha heroes. I love reading a wide range of books (check out my reviews on Goodreads) and my writing is a reflection of what I love most – VARIETY. Every story I write is dear to my heart and I feel passionately about my characters. I hope you will, too! 

Finally – here’s one fun fact about me – R.C. Matthews is a pseudonym. I created it using my husband’s first three names, Robert Carl Matthew (he’s so special that a first and middle name weren’t enough)! It’s my personal dedication to him on every single book in appreciation of his unwavering support of my writing addiction.
