New Website is Live!

Whoohoo! My new website is now officially live!

And I am celebrating with a COVER REVEAL of my next release coming out in April, 2016 with Sourcebooks Casablanca.

Head on over to my new site for a look-see!

Time for Change

I have certainly been remiss in posting to this blog, but in my defense I have been very busy. Here is a brief glimpse at what has been in the works.

RELENTLESS LORD, my novella and a prequel to my previously publishing titles, came out in August to some lovely reviews.

An enjoyable story that features fun characters, a house party full of surprises and some steamy moments.  This is the perfect book for a lazy day by the pool!”   – kiltsandswords

I was so sad when the novella came to an end.  Hannah was such strong, independent and unique character that I wish there had been more to the novel.  Miles was charming and seductive.  This is one of the best novellas that I have read.   – NookBookLady

“If you’re looking for something quick and fun, with a hint of Regency romance, then you can’t go far wrong with this. It’s a light and easy way to spend an hour or two and I enjoyed it.”   – Book Gannet Reviews

I am also super thrilled to announce that REBEL MARQUESS recently won the

2015 Wisconsin RWA Write Touch Readers’ Award for the Historical Long. Yippee!!

∼∼ ♥ ∼ ♥ ∼∼

In the midst of this excitement, I have also been diligently working on a new series coming out next year from Sourcebooks Casablanca.

The year is 1817 and the three Chadwick sisters are about to experience the London Season in three very different ways!

I cannot wait to share more about this exciting project, but more on that later…

∼∼ ♥ ∼ ♥ ∼∼

And lastly, I have been working on getting a new website up and running. It is getting very close to being ready. It’s just not quite there yet. I promise there will be more on that soon. Until then, you can still find me here and on Facebook, Twitter, and if you’d like to ensure you get the latest news on my upcoming releases and other fun stuff, please sign up for my newsletter via the widget on this blog or Facebook.

If all goes as I hope, my new website will be all set to go live in perfect time to reveal the absolutely stunning cover for the first book in my next series!

Lots of exciting things happening!! I cannot wait to share more…

My novella, RELENTLESS LORD, is now up at Samhain Publishing!

Check out the gorgeous cover created by Kim Killion…

This is a prelude to my other Samhain titles (ROGUE COUNTESS, RECKLESS VISCOUNT, REBEL MARQUESS) and takes place one hot summer at a country party where the guests are not always what they seem and seduction tends to run as a theme. Expect a fun (and steamy) summer read with this one!

RELENTLESS LORD is available for pre-order July 12, 2015. Official release is August 11, 2015.

For now… a brief description to tempt the appetite.

He is a hunter at heart…but her heart is no easy prey.

Hannah Walpole suspected the etiquette lessons her parents insisted upon were a wasted effort. Now, looking around at the ton at her debut, she’s sure of it. Her home is the African continent. She simply does not fit in English Society. Nothing will convince her otherwise, especially not a devilishly handsome lord with black hair, vivid green eyes and a wicked reputation for debauching innocent young women.

Lord Miles Whitely admires Hannah’s adventurous spirit and cool composure in the face of adversity. It doesn’t hurt that their first encounter provides him with the delightful opportunity to get his hands beneath her skirts.

When the lady declares she cannot be seduced, he cheerfully takes up the gauntlet she has unwittingly thrown down. But Hannah has no intention of succumbing to his striking gaze or honeyed flattery. Until a crisis leads her to suspect he’s not truly the cad everyone warned her about…

Product Warnings
Contains one misfit debutante, one shamelessly flirty rake who finds humor in nearly everything, and a long, hot summer party in the country. Deploy your fans, ladies. Things are about to get steamy.

Wow! Where have I been!?

I know. It has been FOREVER since I posted a fresh blog.

Where have I been? … you may be wondering …

Well, I promise you will find out. But not quite yet. So, please come back soon for the full details.

In the meantime…

Happy Writing, Happy Reading, Happy Living!

What a Summer…

Once again, I have let way too much time pass since my last post. *blushing with shame* Bad Blogger!

Summer has been a wonderfully busy time. With camping trips, family reunions, and lots of sun and fun in the backyard. My sister, who has lived across the country for seven years or so (and before that, across the state), spent the last several months less than a block away. We took advantage of living so close to each other and established a routine of yoga and brunch every Sunday. It was great to spend that time with her since she has now moved on…back to the beaches of Florida.

In the midst of all the continuous summer fun, I have been diligently working on my next series of books about a trio of sisters who find themselves thrust into the London’s underworld in three very different ways. I am very excited about this series and am just finishing up my last revisions on book 1, which leaves me with a bit of time to notice how neglectful I have been on my blog.

My reprieve will not last long, however, as I will be diving into book 2 within the next couple weeks. Though first, a family vacation to southern California. We leave in just a couple days and I have got all three kids and myself mostly packed up. Just a bit more laundry to do and some last minute details that have to be tucked into the luggage. I’ve got my DO NOT FORGET list which includes my computer since for me…it will be a working vacation, though writing never really feels like work.  😉

Uh oh! Here comes my baby girl, climbing up onto my chair, reminding me its time to make some breakfast. So for now, signing off again, though I have the best intentions not be away for quite as long this time. I hope you all enjoy the rest of your summer!


(For cuteness’s sake, I decided to close this post with some summer pics of my youngest)

the cuteness is too much!

It is the last day of May and Summer has definitely come to the Northwoods. I am not convinced we didn’t just skip Spring altogether! The sun is shining bright and hot, the kids are spending most of their time outdoors(finally!), the days are getting long and the weekends between now and September are filling up fast with trips and activities.

Which reminds of one particular weekend fast approaching…the Wisconsin RWA Write Touch Conference. I cannot wait for this annual gathering of Romance Writers. From the moment one conference ends I start looking forward to the next one.

This year I will have copies of two books to bring to the book signing; ROGUE COUNTESS and RECKLESS VISCOUNT which comes out in print format on June 3! With all the excitement following the electronic release of REBEL MARQUESS I nearly forgot about this other important release. I received my copies several weeks ago and they are gorgeous!



They’ve arrived!


Just a little cheese 😉



So beautiful.


Together with ROGUE.


























The paperback version of RECKLESS VISCOUNT is available for pre-order from the Samhain website.



Happy Birthday to Me!!

Today is my birthday and I could think of no better way to celebrate than with the Cover Reveal of my next title scheduled to release from Samhain Publishing April 22, 2014…

The Marquess of Rutherford has successfully evaded the relentless pursuit of six husband-hunting Terribury daughters…

Time to meet the seventh!

Rebel Marquess


It is about time Rutherford got his story!
