May 21, 2013 >> New excerpt in the house! Chapter 1 of my October romance, SEASON FOR SCANDAL, has been posted. This is the third book in the Season quartet, but no worries if you haven’t read the others. Each story stands on its own.

This series will feature original scenes by historical romance authors each day from December 2 through 23. My scene will be posted on Thursday, December 6, featuring all new characters and a topic that made me grin.
Also this month: the December Joyathon, an interview series run by Romancing Rakes for the Love of Romance. A different romance author is featured each day from December 1 through 24–my interview day is Saturday, December 15. There are daily giveaways throughout both series, so I hope you’ll stop by to join the fun!
November 2012 >> Oh, so much delightfulness happening this month. SEASON FOR SURRENDER is the November book club pick at the awesome romance site Smart Bitches, Trashy Books. The text chat took place on Tuesday, November 27, and is archived here.
I’m also taking part in two group blog events: Twelve Days of Christmas, hosted on USA Today’s Happy Ever After blog (November 5-20), and Romancing the Holidays, hosted on The Romance Dish (November 30). There will be prizes like whoa, so I hope to see you at both.
But wait, there’s more: I have NEW SALES to announce. I’ll be writing two more holiday romances in the SEASON world–and next fall, I’ll kick off a new historical romance trilogy for Sourcebooks! There’s a little more information on the Books page, and I’ll post new details as I have them.
September-October 2012 >> The SEASON FOR SURRENDER blog tour is kicking off, so please join me around the web for secrets about the book–plus lots of tomfoolery and, of course, book giveaways. I’ll be giving away a signed book at every stop.

August 26, 2010 >> My public Facebook page is up as of about 7 minutes ago. I’m kind of impressed that I figured it out without somehow deleting the world — which, considering my track record with web coding, is always more likely.
June 30, 2010 >> It’s official: THE VISCOUNT’S DILEMMA will be published by Kensington Zebra! YEAH!! Right now it’s scheduled for October 2011 (Christmas) publication. By the time your beautiful faces see it in bookstores, it’ll have a new title – I’ll update as soon as I know more.
