This week, I’m off to the RT Booklovers Convention in Columbus, Ohio, where I can’t wait to meet up with readers, writers, and booksellers…oh, and accept a lovely award for Goddess of the Hunt (RT Reviewer’s Choice for Best First Historical 2009)! In the meantime, I hope you enjoy checking out the new book video and listening to an excerpt from One Dance with a Duke. And be sure to request your free bookmarks!

RITA finalist!

I’m thrilled to announce that Surrender of a Siren is a RITA finalist in the Regency Historical category! The RITAs are given by the Romance Writers of America to celebrate excellence in the romance genre, and the awards will be presented at the national conference this July. I’m so honored.

March, 2010

Whew! I have met all my deadlines (for the moment, ha), and just in time to enjoy the beautiful California spring. (My sympathies to those of you still shoveling snow in the East.) It’s a busy family month for us, with weddings and birthdays and other fun. And I can’t believe it’s just a few months until the May 25th release of One Dance with a Duke!

Ah, February…the month of romance! For me, this is going to be the month of romance and work, work, work, as I finish up the writing, revising, and editing of the 2010 trilogy (starts with One Dance with a Duke on May 25!). So I may be scarce on the internet for a few weeks, but in the meantime I’ve opened a new “New Authors” contest, giving away books from historical debut authors Sara Lindsey and Erica Ridley. Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy New Year! 2009 was a fantastic year, thanks to the wonderful family, friends and readers who made my debut trilogy a success. I’m so grateful. It’s hard to imagine topping that excitement…but 2010 is shaping up to be pretty darn cool, too. A new back-to-back trilogy will hit stores this summer, starting with One Dance with a Duke on May 25.

A Lady of Persuasion is in stores today!  This is the final installment of the trilogy, and I’m so excited to send Toby and Bel’s romance out into the world.  RT Book Reviews named it a Top Pick, citing “wry wit, endearing characters, laugh-out-loud moments, sensual interludes and poignancy.”  Please do stop by my blog today for a release-day party with friends, old and new.  You could win autographed books for yourself and a friend!
