Only Four Shopping Days Left Until Christmas!

This year, I'm taking the season one day at a time, trying not to stress or bitch or moan. Just keep plowing on through it. Raise your hands if you can relate.

I got the tree up on the 9th,


and wrapped presents on the 14th. At least, those I had already bought. Christmas presents for my eldest son are kinda tough this year because he now lives clear across the country in California and doesn't want to have to take stuff home with him on the plane. Getting packages delivered to him at his workplace instead of his apartment wasn't the solution, because they tried to deliver one of them on a Saturday when no one was there. *sigh* But I keep trying...

Making candy is next. I'm trying my hand at chocolate truffles this year. They may not turn out very pretty, but eating the ugly ones should be no hardship on anyone. 😁

I have a new release coming January 29th, (Cat Star Legacy #2: Mystic) so of course I have posts to write for the blog tour by the second of January. Fortun…

Crazed or Calm? What Will You Choose This Holiday Season?

Christmas is almost here and I'm about two months behind on everything that needs to be done. I've just finished the third book in my Deadly Forces series for Sourcebooks (and am waiting for a title), and have realized that I have no presents yet, my tree isn't up, and the kids come home from college tomorrow. Forget about the Christmas cards and baking.

Last night I felt the beginnings of a panic attack. Usually I have my Christmas planner out on November 1 and start the countdown. I check coupons, plan menus, and come up with a baking schedule. Because this book 3 has kicked my butt for the past ten months, I'm behind on everything.

So I did what I do when I get stressed. I took a bath. I filled the tub with hot water, added bath salts, and put on some Christmas music. And it felt wonderful.



As I drifted away, trying to forget how difficult this latest book was to write and how it sucked all of my creative energy for almost an entire year, I made a conscious decisio…

Excerpt from Decoy Date

Decoy Date, book 4 in The Wedding Date series, is available now!Fake relationship. Real feelings. Big problems. Brody O’Donnel doesn’t believe in happily-ever-afters—at least, not for himself. But he wants the best for his vivacious, beautiful friend Gwen Danes, and he’s tired of watching her pine for a clueless man. Figuring a little bit of jealousy will motivate the guy, Brody proposes a fake relationship. It’s an outrageous plan, but Gwen figures there’s no harm in it—until they share a passionate kiss she never saw coming. Suddenly, Gwen’s fighting a growing attraction to a man she knows she can’t have. After all, he’s just faking it…isn’t he? Enjoy this excerpt! “How about the bar. How did you get into that?" More relaxed, Brody made another one of those considering faces before answering. "I grew up wanting my own restaurant. The plans for the bar came later. My grandmother owned this swank place in Manhattan, and I thought there wasn't anything better." "Your…

Someone Like You

The fourth of the Night Riders’ crew finds redemption in the love of a beautiful woman in Someone Like You, an emotional historical Western romance!



Only she can heal his battered heart…

When Rafe Jerry was ordered off his family’s California ranch, he swore never to return. Instead, he ran away to war, where the harsh realities of battle transformed him into a crack soldier—and an unexpected betrayal made him a man to be feared.

Now the war has ended and Rafe is left with two goals: track down the man who betrayed his brothers-in-arms, and fight for the land that should have been his. He has no room in his hardened heart for love…but Maria de la Guerra is like no woman he’s ever known. With her gentle strength and endless compassion, she may be his only chance to let go of the pain of the past—and finally be free.

The war has changed them all, and each of the Night Riders must decide what is more important: love or revenge?

“An emotional, rich, adventurous romance.” —RT Book Reviews fo…

Excerpt from You Had Me At Cowboy

You Had Me at Cowboy, book 2 in the Cowboys of Creedence series, is out now!
This cowboy is falling hard

Mason James is the responsible one who stayed behind to run the ranch while his brother, Rock, took off to play professional hockey. Women have used him before to get to his brother—and Mason intends never to get burned again. But after he meets quirky Tessa Kane at his brother’s wedding, Mason discovers he’s ready to take a chance on love.
Tessa Kane is a reporter on the verge of losing a job she desperately needs—unless she’s clever enough to snag a story on the famous Rockford James. But when she falls for her subject’s brother, she’s caught between a rock and a hard-muscled cowboy. What will happen when Mason finds out who she really is?


Enjoy this excerpt:I might have just fallen in love…
He wasn’t kidding. There was meat—and beef, as in beefcake—everywhere she turned. Tess didn’t think she’d ever been in a room full of so many beautiful people. Yet she couldn’t seem to take her ey…

Earl to the Rescue is out!

Sourcebooks has just released a refurbished version of my very first book Gwendeline, now called Earl to the Rescue. Gwendeline, just eighteen and totally unsuited to earn her own way in the world, is about to be evicted from her home when butler ushers in a tall, rather arrogant visitor, Lord Merryn. He had, it seemed, been a friend of her late parents, who had lived too well and too briefly — squandering their fortune and then meeting death in a carriage accident. But Gwendeline is an older orphan than Lord Merryn expected, a young lady who must be introduced to London society. Quickly, he invents a “group of her parents’ friends” to finance her debut. Never must she learn that he alone is her benefactor — or why. Booklist called the book “an irresistibly sweet literary confection perfect for readers who miss those marvelous traditional Regencies by the likes of Marion Chesney and Barbara Metzger.” Read an excerpt below.
Alone in her bedchamber later in the day, Gwendeline thought over…
