I’m trying to play it cool. I really am. But LOOK HOW PRETTY THIS IS YOU GUYS:


Ok, I’m not playing it cool. I’ve never been especially cool, and the first sighting of a new book is enough to drive me into ungrammatical fits of delight. I just got the advance copies of my September romance, It Takes Two to Tangle, and WOW. Isn’t this book design lovely? Even the spine is a work of art. I can’t thank the Sourcebooks art department enough.

It Takes Two to Tangle is the first book in my new “Matchmaker” trilogy–so called because the characters try to matchmake for one another, and lo, nothing goes as they expect. The hero of this book, Henry, is a wounded ex-soldier/artist. That made him a real challenge to write, which is probably why I wound up liking him so much! (The fact that he’s a lefty by default only adds to his appeal.) And the heroine, Frances? Ohhh, she’s a sly one. Want a taste of the story? You can read Chapter 1 on my site here.
