New Books in the Works!

I’m very pleased to announce that I’ve just signed a new contract with my publisher, Grand Central Publishing for three more books! They will be a continuation of the Maiden Lane series with characters I’ve been getting lots of reader mail about! ;-) The first book of the new contract will be released in summer 2012 and will feature Winter Makepeace and is tentatively titled Thief of Shadows. I hope you enjoy it!

Romance Writers of America’s conference is coming up at the end of June and with it the annual “Readers for Life” Literacy Autographing. This year it will be in New York City at the Marriott Marquis in Times Square, Tuesday, June 28th from 5:30-7:30 p.m. There will be over 500 authors signing their books and all proceeds will benefit literacy in New York.

Finally, I’ve donated three items to Brenda Novak’s Annual Auction for the Cure of Diabetes: Luncheon with moi in NYC, a signed set of all my books, and a signed advanced readers copy of my upcoming November release, Scandalous Desires.


Happy New Year!

A very Happy New Year to you and yours! I hope the new year will bring peace, prosperity, and plenty of reading pleasures.

I’m beginning a new book with the new year–Notorious Pleasures is the second book in the Maiden Lane series and involves the daughter of a duke who has found the perfect man to marry…and then falls for his less than perfect brother. We don’t have a release date for Notorious Pleasures yet (sometime in early 2011 most probably) but the first book in the series, Wicked Intentions, will be out this year in August.

And where exactly is the Wicked Intentions page?! Well, I’m waiting on the book cover to put it up. Hopefully by February!

Finally, the final chapter–and epilogue–of my free novella, The Ice Princess is up!

I hope you enjoy.

The days are getting warmer here in central Illinois. Max, the biggest Untrained Dog, is shedding enough fur to knit a king-sized sweater..except it would be a shaggy gray black sweater that would smell like a dog which I don’t think anyone would want.

I’ve received some letters recently from readers wondering what project I’m working on now and what’s up next after To Desire a Devil in November. A couple of weeks ago I signed a new contract with my publisher (Grand Central Publishing) for three books to be published in 2010 and 2011. I’m writing the first book now of what will be the Maiden Lane series. It’s titled Wicked Intentions. The hero of Wicked Intentions is Lazarus Huntington, Lord Caire, an emotionless aristocrat searching for the murderer of his mistress. To find the murderer Caire needs the help of Temperance Dews, a proper widow who runs a foundling home in St. Giles. But neither Temperance or Caire are quite what they seem on the surface…
