What I’ve been up to


I know it’s been pretty quiet lately here on the blog, and I don’t want you to think I’ve taken a powder.  I’ve simply been a bit focused on the January release of Secrets for Seducing a Royal Bodyguard, book one in my new historical romance series.  But I promise I’ll be hosting more great authors here on the blog in the next few months, including visits from Manda Collins and Sally MacKenzie.

What else have I been doing?  Well, just last week I handed in the manuscript for Tall, Dark, and Royal, Dominic Hunter’s story, which will be released as a digital novella in November.  I really enjoyed giving poor Dominic his well-earned HEA, and I hope my readers will be pleased.  I actually cried when I wrote the last scene, which I think is a good sign!

Right now, I’m working on book three in The Renegade Royals, which will be released about a year from now.  And I’m also getting ready for the release of Confessions of a Royal Bridegroom on April 1.  This is Griffin Steele’s story, and you can check out the blurb and an excerpt on the Confessions Book Page.

If you haven’t already, don’t forget to enter my goodreads giveaway for Confessions.  I’ll be giving away ten ARCS of the book, which means you could get to read Griffin’s story a month before anyone else!  Just click here to enter the contest.

And stop back on Tuesday the 28th for a visit from fab historical romance author, Manda Collins!
