The lovely readers at All About Romance have voted me “Best Debut Author of 2009” in their annual reader poll. This is a truly thrilling honor to receive! I was also so excited to see that my good friend and critique partner, Courtney Milan, was awarded Best Short Story for her novella “This Wicked Gift” in The Heart of Christmas. Congratulations to all the winners. I am just delighted to be mentioned in such great company.

AAR is coincidentally having a Valentine’s Day giveaway featuring debut authors – my three books are in there, all signed, and so is Courtney’s amazing Proof By Seduction. Also in the prize basket are books by Lavinia Kent, Carrie Lofty, and Kaki Warner, plus a slew of other great prizes, including a $50 gift certificate to All you have to do to enter is visit the AAR blog and leave a comment about recent debuts you’ve enjoyed!

Go forth and win!

    Congratulations. I finally got around to reading Goddess of the Hunt, and I think the AAR readers made the right call. Your wordsmithing is just exquisite.

    Now where can I get a copy of Memoirs of a Wanton Dairymaid?
