The Votes Are In!

I’ve promised to post a free online epilogue when my just released book, Duke of Midnight, reaches 100 reviews on Amazon. In the meantime, I asked for input from readers on which Maiden Lane book you’d like an epilogue for…and now the results are in!

Charming Mickey O’Connor and Silence‘s book, Scandalous Desires was far and away the winner!

Coming in pretty evenly in second place were Winter and Isabel in Thief of Shadows, and Maximus and Artemis in Duke of Midnight.

There were votes for every book in the Maiden Lane series and a small, but quite vocal minority wanted an epilogue for all the books with appearances by all the main couples. Hmm…well, you know Christmas is coming up and if you’re very, very good perhaps a small gift can be arranged. ;-)

In the meantime, I just noticed that Duke of Midnight has 74 reviews on Amazon in only the first week of release! I have two thoughts on this:

1. Thank you to everyone who took the time to post a review on Amazon, Goodreads or the book place of your choice! I’m very, very grateful for the support from all of my readers.


2. Meep! I’d better get writing that epilogue. ;-)


An Upcoming Signing and a Contest!

I’m quite excited! I just heard word that I’ll be signing at the Anderson’s Bookshop in Naperville, Illinois on April 27th. I’ll be joined by several other author friends, but I want to wait to announce who until we have definite confirmations. Just be assured that if you read historical romance this won’t be a signing to miss. ;-)

My goodness, it’s already February and Lord of Darkness will be here in 26 days. If you haven’t already done so, now might be a good time to pre-order the book or ebook so as to have it in your hands on release day.

To celebrate the release of Lord of Darkness, I’m holding a Facebook contest along with Eloisa James, Susan Mallery, Julia London, Jillian Hunter, and debut author, Maire Claremont. The contest runs February 1st thru March 15th. We’ll be giving away weekly signed book bundles and, at the end, a new iPad mini! Do be sure to enter.

Meanwhile, check out my Maiden Lane pages for the List of Characters for Lord of Darkness, as well as the new St. John Family Tree. I’ve been adding to the excerpt of Lord of Darkness (we’re now in Chapter 2) and there’s also an ongoing “prologue“–letters between Megs and Godric written during the two year gap between the end of Thief of Shadows and the beginning of Lord of Darkness.

Finally, if you’d like to be alerted the very day that Lord of Darkness arrives in stores, please sign up for my one time only Tell Me When the Book is Out! News Alert.
