Author Biography

CJ Matthew grew up in an Air Force family traveling and living all over the US and around the world. It proved to be the perfect experience for gathering ideas and material for future books. And for meeting real life heroes and heroines in uniforms and flight-suits. She spent her high school and university years living in California, which inspired her love of marine life, and the Pacific Ocean.

Blood Tide is the first book in her paranormal romantic suspense series titled Dolphin Shore Shifters. The series features a pod of dolphins living in the Santa Barbara, channel off the coast of California, capable of shifting to human form. While posing as real humans, the dolphins work through their oceanic conservation corporation, Save Blue Water, to protect their oceans at any cost.

CJ’s next series, The Paladin Group, launched with Deadly Reboot. The books are romantic suspense, set in a small southern town, and they star wounded air force veterans, men and women warriors turned civilian lawyers and investigators determined to continue their rescue work.

A member of Romance Writers of America (RWA), Georgia Romance Writers (GRW), and Kiss of Death, CJ lives and writes near a lake in the woods northeast of Atlanta. When she isn't writing or reading romances, CJ spends time with her two grown children, their spouses, a brilliant grandson and a feisty cat named Max.

Schedule permitting, CJ loves to travel, to discover new favorite places as well as meeting new friends in both the US and around the world.

Max flatly refuses to travel.

Save Blue Water’s beautiful and dedicated Dr. Libra Lewis is determined to find out what is causing increased aggression among the field ops shore shifters in Dangerous Tide: Dolphin Shore Shifters Book Three by C.J. Matthew. That puts Libra in direct contact with the handsome, virile new head of the department, Rye Walker. The action becomes intense as Libra and other board members argue about some expensive new equipment to help her study the hormone levels of the male dolphins in their human forms. To push her point, Libra agrees to help Rye, who like all dolphins has a phobia, fly from headquarters in Santa Barbara, California to Galveston, Texas where one of the field ops team members has disappeared. The two become embroiled in more than an illegal ocean dumping scheme that threatens the life of the missing agent and puts both Libra and Rye in the cross-hairs of a ruthless killer. Even with the help of another field ops team and a close connection with a local doctor at the hospital, will Rye and Libra get to the bottom of the mystery, not to mention come to terms with the increasingly intense emotions they share, without losing their lives?

Dolphin Shore Shifters Book Three, Dangerous Tide by C.J. Matthew is an excellent continuation of the stories involving the work of a very public organization hiding an amazing secret. The characters are extremely well developed with a depth of emotions and physical abilities, and the action is intense as they fight their own demons to work together to not only solve a crime, but to save their lives. Realistic dialogue, just the right amount of vulnerability, and terrific sex scenes keep the pages turning as you fight the clock along with the heroes to see how everything is going to turn out. The story line stays strong in this third volume and leads you eagerly back to the book store for the next installment. I really enjoyed it and was thrilled when I got to the end and saw that there are actually two more volumes! I have become invested in the SBW mission and the happiness of the team!
