Anna’s breath caught when he lifted his hand and touched the neatly arranged curl near her temple. She could not move as he caressed the shell of her ear. “Perhaps you ought to have your hearing examined, Miss Jacobs. You might need an ear trumpet, at least for when you’re eavesdropping.”

She swatted his hand away. “Are you saying you did not refuse to help my brother?”

“I am saying that I refused to give him the names of my assailants the other evening. That was the extent of our conversation.”

She pressed one hand to her breast, but quickly dropped it to her side when she saw how well he took note of her anatomy. It should have been unnerving to be the object of such direct perusal, but . . . Anna moistened her lips and concentrated on the matter at hand. “Th-then why has he been sent away to Scotland?”

“Do you know you have the most intriguing dimple just here, when you are puzzled?” His finger traced the divot in her chin.

I’m so pleased to finally be able to share this with y’all. So without further ado, I give you the cover for my upcoming June release, The Secrets of Mia Danvers



Isn’t it stunning? I’m just in love with it!

So I’ve just wrapped up revisions on A LITTLE BIT WICKED and I’m back to work on A LITTLE BIT SINFUL and I have to admit I’ve been struggling some with these books. But I’ve finally figured out why and that is a good thing. For the last several years I’ve been working on my Legend Hunters books and then I wrote THE SECRETS OF MIA DANVERS and all of those books are big and full of adventure and suspense and mystery in addition to the romance. And then I started the Forbidden Love trilogy for Entangled Scandalous and admittedly I forgot that just because I’m not writing a suspense-heavy historical doesn’t mean my characters don’t still need GMC. It’s kind of an embarrassing lesson, to be honest, because well, I’m fairly well-known for teaching classes on that very issue. About how the GMC should be where the action of your book comes from. I know that. And yet, I still tried to cheat and get away with not doing it and now I’m having to back and fix it – in the first book in revisions and in this current one, post first draft. So let this be a lesson to any of you, no matter where you are in your career, what kind of book you’re writing and how short it is, you still need a solid GMC for your characters to propel your plot!

Also I want to share my tentative release schedule for the next twelve months because I’m so damn excited about it!

A LITTLE BIT WICKED – December 2012

Okay kids, that’s 5 releases over the next year. I’m so very happy to be able to share so many wonderful characters and stories with all of you.

*this a tentative schedule and includes some tentative titles*

I have been waiting so long to tell you about this new series I’ve been working on, and now I finally can. I’ve accepted a 2-book deal with NAL to publish the series I’ve called Dangerous Liaisons (not sure if that will be used in any official capacity). Here’s a brief blurb (again not official) to whet your appetites. As soon as I have more details as far as release dates, etc. I’ll let everyone know.


In the fall of 1888 a murderer terrorized the Whitechapel area in London, horribly mutilating prostitutes and leaving their blood-drenched bodies out to be found, taunting the police and paralyzing the poverty-stricken people with fear. In taunting letters to the police and the newspapers, he called himself Jack the Ripper. Then as quickly as he appeared, he vanished from the news, his reign of terror apparently at an end. A few months later another girl’s body was found, but this time in prestigious Mayfair, and this time there was a witness.

Mia Danvers is a blind girl fallen from Society and living at the property edge of the arrogant and proper Alexander Foster, the Duke of Carrington. Though they live on the same land, their paths never cross, until they must work together to stop London’s must infamous villain. Though blind, Mia is determined to help track down the culprit in the murder she witnessed, even though the only person willing to accept her help is the arrogant Duke of Carrington. However, as they work together, a passion will spark between them that cannot be ignored.

So woot-woot! I’m so excited to share these books with you.
