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.
