Confessions of A Ro#14B6A95

Completely out of the blue, Amazon and Barnes & Noble have put CONFESSIONS OF A ROYAL BRIDEGROOM, the second book in my bestselling Renegade Royals Series, on sale for only 99 cents in digital. Wow! I have to confess that I love this book. The hero, Griffin Steele, is a classic bad boy who meets his match in prim, determined spinster Justine Brightmore. I’ve always thought that Griffin is very swoon-worthy, and readers seem to agree!

Giveaway on my facebook page!

Sex and The Single Earl

Remember this? It’s the second book in my first series and it’s now almost impossible to find in print. Digital, yes–it’s available in formats like Kindle and Nook, but print? I can’t even find any additional copies!

Sex and the Single Earl was one of my favorite books to write, partly because the entire story is set in Bath. It also won the prestigious Maggie Medallion for Best Historical Romance, so I’m very proud about that. Plus, you know–sexy earls.

I’m giving away a rare print copy today on my facebook page. If you haven’t already entered the contest, why don’t you pop on over and leave a comment? And if you like to read in digital, Sex and the Single Earl is currently on sale for only $4.30 on Kindle.

Happy reading!
