About Cadia

Cadia with her first batch of Heart's Desires
With the first batch of Heart’s Desires!

Hi! Thanks so much for visiting my website!


I write contemporary romance with a touch of humor and a boatload of heart! I am very excited to introduce you to Coral Cove, Texas and three holiday novellas that lead to happily-ever-afters. Heart’s Desire, the first book in the series, came to life when I was asked by a group of published romance authors to join them in writing the Stolen Hearts Valentine short story series. Completely enthralled with the challenge, I am happy to say that there will be many, many more romances to come!


Winning Finalist in the ETWG Blue Ribbon Cover Awards 2017 for my book, Double Shot of Love, has been a highlight of my romance writing. I am both the cover designer and the author, so I am doubly thrilled to have won this prestigious award!


I read as many romance novels as I can get my hands on, am an avid photographer, and love to travel, having been to all fifty states and around the world. I adore escaping to the ocean, getting lost in the Smithsonian, discovering new dessert recipes, and, of course, all things chocolate! Not quite a native of Texas, as the saying goes: I got here as quickly as I could! The Lone Star State is where I kick up my boots with my wonderful husband, Eric.


Be sure to check out the recipes that are included after each novella on the Recipe page. I had a lot of fun creating and finding yummy recipes for each book. I hope you enjoy them!


Cadia Cox is the pen name under which I write my romance books. I also write crossover novels under the name M.M. Frische and picture books for young kiddos as Muffet Frische. To see books available under these other names, please visit my publishing website at www.tenstorybooks.com.


Happy Reading!
