Book Launch: IN HIS HANDS by Adriana Anders out August 1st!

IN HIS HANDS, the third book in the Blank Canvas series is out tomorrow! About IN HIS HANDS: The rules are simple: Never speak to outsiders. Never yearn for something more. And never, ever seek the pleasure of a stolen kiss...or a whispered promise that with him, she can finally be free. Abby Merkley has been a member of the Church of the Apocalyptic Faith since she was a child, and there's no way out...until her darkly handsome, brooding neighbor defies the rules and takes her into the safety of his arms. He should frighten her, but everything inside Abby thrills at Luc Stanek's rough manners and shockingly gentle touch. He excites her, ignites her, leaves her shaken and wanting more. But evil men follow in her footsteps, and it may take more than one fierce beauty to defend her loving beast.

Book Launch: Saving Mr. Perfect

She's a wanted jewel thief.  He's FBI. What's that saying? Keep your friends close...and your husband closer. Your summer (and mine) just got a whole lot more exciting!  Nothing says sun and relaxation quite like a romantic heist caper. If you like your men suited up, your women slightly crooked, and your romance filled with laughter, then the Penelope Blue series is perfect for you. Although I strongly recommend you start with STEALING MR. RIGHT before you jump into this book, this entire series is a whole lot of fun. Keep an eye out for the third book in the series, SEEKING MR. WRONG , out in March of next year! Back Cover Copy:  Being a retired jewel thief certainly has its perks. 1. Oh, wait. 2. No it doesn't. Without the thrill of the chase, life's been pretty dull. Penelope gardens, drives her gorgeous husband up the wall, and watches as her old world slowly slips away. But what's that old saying? When one thief closes the

It's here! It's here! Launch of Never Dare a Dragon

Women can be just as tough and brave as men. My firefighting females in both My Wild Irish Dragon and Never Dare a Dragon prove this. Of course, what's a romance without a hunky hero? I think mine is the handsomest and most charming hero I've ever written. Jayce Fierro is his name. You won't see him in this excerpt, because, after all, this post is about brave women! But, just look at the yummy! *sigh* Now, here's what Kristine Scott has to go through as a Hell's Kitchen firefighter with the FDNY. By the way, I interviewed a couple of Hell's Kitchen firefighters, and this is an actual story they shared with me. Of note: They have a female captain! Two days later, Kristine was back to work at her fire station in Hell’s Kitchen, back to studying for the lieutenant’s exam. Her life seemed on track, but something was missing. Her mind had returned over and over again to that bright smile and those dark eyes glinting with naughtiness. She kept telling hers

The magic started at conference

Today I am at a conference, the Romance Writers of America national conference. (It’s where a whole bunch of people who write kissing stories get together and become an awesome tequila-drinking, alpha-male ogling aggregate. You should totally look into it.) This year's event is precisely my second romance-writing conference ever. And it has a story. Three years ago, I went to my first romance-writing conference. This was me, right before the Fantasy Futuristic and Paranormal (FF&P) steampunk shindig: At that conferences, I pitched my book to an agent and an editor. Both were super kind and worked really hard to make me feel comfortable, which, thinking about it now, must have been on the verge of superhuman since they had been sitting in uncomfortable-looking chairs for literally hours and presumably without potty or coffee breaks. Poor them! And yet: kind. Despite the fact that my book was clearly neither romance nor science fiction but a weird hybrid

Kim Redford and Her Classic Cadillac Convertible

When I got a call from my editor (the incomparable Deb Werksman) about my new book, A Very Cowboy Christmas , I sat up and took notice. She said to me, “Will you please, please, let the heroine (Sydney Steele) keep the Cadillac she rents. I don’t care how you do it, but will you find a good reason why she owns the Caddy?” Well, that request had my mind whirling in several directions as I tried to figure out how she’d arrived at her request. Finally, I said, “You want to drive that classic car, don’t you?” When she enthusiastically agreed, I knew readers would feel the same way, so I was up for the challenge. Now here’s a little background to bring you up to speed on this snippet of conversation. In my novel, Sydney is promoting Christmas at the Sure-Shot Drive-In—a brand-new event in Sure-Shot, Texas, at the recently renovated 1950s drive-in, also known as the Passion Pit—by driving a pink 1959 Cadillac convertible with longhorns on the front grill (after all, it’s Tex

Snippet of The Right Kind of Reckless (Coming 11/7)

In the world of publishing, everything is slow going. Several people have asked me, emailed me, messaged me, and all that good stuff, wondering about the next books in my series. For now, The Right Kind of Reckless is officially coming November 7th! AKA Max's story. As for Gavin's story? I don't have an official release date for that just yet. (sorry Gav lovers!!) BUT I'm hoping next year, for sure. To make up for all the waiting, I've decided to give some Max fans a little taste of his sweetness come November. Yes, he kind of got a bad rap for being a little jerky when it comes to women, but I SWEAR to you all, he's got the most redeemable book ever. Writing a hero that's a bit of an ass specialty. Was Collin an overprotective, overbearing, downright booger of a man at times? Yeah, and I'm not afraid to admit it. WHY? Because I love to read books like that, bottom line. Was Max a bit of a jerk who spins tails and loves the ladies a litt
