Hello! I’m Rebecca E. Neely, and I give permission for the information below to be used to promote my books. I’m available for interviews and guest posts. Please drop me a line at my CONTACT PAGE.


REN headshot Dec 13 2015 useA sucker for a happy ending, Rebecca strives to write the kind of stories she loves to read—gritty, suspenseful and featuring authentic, edgy and vulnerable characters, smack dab in the middle of action that explodes from page one.

Raised on a down home blend of Johnny Cash, Jack London, Sherlock Holmes, the Steelers, and all things small town, she feels blessed to have grown up in a close knit, fun loving and artistic family. Her mother, a voracious reader and scratch cook, and her father, an entrepreneur, English teacher and lover of literature, taught Rebecca and her brother to work hard, aim for the stars, and live life.

With music, books and laughter as constant companions, she grew up working, cooking and eating in the family’s restaurant business. A certified book and hoagie junkie, she thrives on live music, mysteries and the outdoors.

Rebecca is a cheddar enthusiast, lover of cats, teddy bears, hot coffee, cold beer, thunderstorms, the blast of a train’s whistle, the change of seasons, country roads, woodpeckers, spoon rings, cool office supplies, and the Food Network.

Careers, past and present, include freelance writing, accounting, mother, problem solver, doer and head bottle washer.

Rebecca is a member of Three Rivers Romance Writers (TRRW), a PAN member of Romance Writers of America (RWA), and is proud to serve as a judge for several writing contests each year.

When the Watchers task Dev Geary, a Watcher in training and former Keeper, with returning to the human realm to discover the secret for rendering Similitude—the very thing that killed him—he eagerly accepts the mission, hell bent on avenging his own death.

But to succeed in the seven days he’s been granted before he must return to the Watchers’ realm, he’ll need to work with the one human who might be able to help him if she so chooses, and who he can’t help falling for—Meda Gabriel, a cagey, street smart bar owner with a unique skill set.

Nick Geary, jaded clan leader of human guardians, the Keepers, is doomed to love a human woman who’s forgotten him, time after time, for thirteen years: Libby Klink, a skittish accountant who’s as terrified of her recent and strange intuitions as she is of her mundane existence.

When Nick is ordered by the clan’s guiding force to seek Libby’s help in defending the clan against enemy Betrayers, romance sizzles as the pair forms an unlikely alliance in their desperate search to discover the key to the clan’s salvation—which Libby alone holds.

But a haunting secret could cost Nick everything, and in a race against time, both will be forced to choose between their hearts and duty. Can their love, and the clan, survive, or will the very forces that drew them together ultimately destroy them?

4 STARSThe Keeper is the first of a new series that I can’t wait to read more of. Every character is well-rounded and developed.

Looking forward to continuing with this series and definitely recommended!” Archaeolibrarian – I Dig Good Books! – Full review

‘Hank’ Jerry – This down and out writer and tough talking twentieth century broad is desperate to reclaim her personal and professional life.

Jack ‘Gent’ Darcy – This strange blend of gentleman and hood is fresh out of prison with a story to tell that could get them both killed.

Forced to return to the small town and the aunt she left behind, ‘Hank’ is doing her own time. But when Jack lands on Hank’s doorstep, injured and on the run, he makes her a proposition she can’t refuse: write his story about life inside one of the most powerful gangs in the country. It’s simple – she’ll get her career groove back, and he’ll bury the gang, then disappear – his version of freedom.

Only problem is, they can’t help falling for each other, and they’ve both got something to hide that could blow up in their faces. With time running out and gang enforcers closing in, will the trust they’ve forged survive the ultimate test?


“…I would recommend this story to romance lovers everywhere. The concept of this story was so cool, the way their two careers/paths collided, but then their attraction to one another made what could have been a simple arrangement way more complicated. I’m not sure I’ve ever read a romance quite like this one, but I know one thing… I want more.”
Only the Books For Me

“Opposites attract and everything happening is a balance of opposition forces coming together to create a story that keeps the reader on their toes…The undeniable attraction between a story, a journalist, a war leader, a feisty aunt, and a home town diner keeps the Herbs de Provence flowing in Fiddler’s Elbow.”
InD’Tale Magazine – Serving Self & Small Published with a Romantic Flair
“Mystery, humor, some steam, and an attention grabbing plot. I can see myself reading more from this author.”
