March 01


What’s up in March?

Happy March, everyone! Here in Florida, the azaleas are beginning to peek out of the bushes which means SPRING is finally in the air. Yay!

What I’m Up To . . .

I’ve finished writing the second book in my new Playful Brides series. Book 2 is called, The Accidental Countess, and is based on Oscar Wilde’s romp-alicious play, The Importance of Being Earnest. I am busily plotting the third book, The Unlikely Lady, which will be based on The Bard’s Much Ado About Nothing!

The Christmas anthology! The Christmas anthology!

I’m doing cartwheels over the fact that (ok, not really, I can’t do a cartwheel) It Happened Under the Mistletoe will be published in PRINT on Sept 30, 2014 in a Christmas anthology with New York Times Bestselling author, Suzanne Enoch, USA Today Bestselling author, Alexandra Hawkins, and award-winning historical author, Elizabeth Essex! Ooh, I cannot wait!

The anthology is called Christmas Brides and is already on Barnes and NobleAmazon, and GoodReads. Be sure to pre-order a copy or mark it as Want to Read on GoodReads! Also, I’ve seen the cover and it’s AMAZING! Check out the reveal on Heroes and Heartbreakers!
