Update, 12/30 – The ten winners (drawn at random by Rafflecopter, listed in the widget below) have been announced and notified! I’ve sent out emails to the winners, and to everyone who entered, so if you don’t see an email from me in your inbox, please check your spam or bulk mail folder just in case. Thank you so much to all who entered! 

Do you want to write a romance novel in 2017? Or write another romance novel? Or write a better romance novel? (Hah, don’t we all want that last!) Then this giveaway is for you.

Twenty years ago, I made a New Year’s resolution to write a novel. Didn’t happen. So I made that same resolution nineteen years ago, and eighteen years ago, and seventeen … you get the picture. It took me ages to get from wanting to write a novel, to actually having written one.  But I made the resolution every year nonetheless. I would buy myself a pretty new notebook and some pens, and for a few weeks, anything felt possible.

2017 may or may not be the year that the romance-writing thing gels for you. That’s okay. The wanting counts. The sitting down and trying counts. The reading counts. And fresh pens and blank notebooks that make us feel anything is possible?  They count, too.

So for anyone with a romance-writing New Year’s resolution, I’m offering a giveaway with some of my favorite, most essential writing things.

“When A(nother) Scot Ties the Knot” – a bonus epilogue!

Catch up with Logan, Maddie, Aunt Thea, and Logan’s men a few years after the end of the book.… Read More »

Over the past year, I’ve received many letters and questions from readers about the characters from When a Scot Ties the Knot — Maddie, Logan, Aunt Thea, and all of Logan’s men. It seems that many wanted to know that they all ended happily, and I did, too. So I wrote a bonus epilogue as a way to peek in on them a few years later. It got a bit long, so I decided to split it into three parts.

I hope you enjoy spending a bit more time at Lannair Castle. I wish you and yours the very happiest of holidays and a brilliant start to 2017!… Read More »

It seems that many wanted to know that they all ended happily, and I did, too. So I wrote this bonus epilogue as a way to peek in on them a few years later.

This are the first and second parts, out of three. Part three will be released Friday, December 23rd. If you’d like to get it in your inbox, make sure you’re signed up for my mailing list!

Logan

“You little thief. Get back here, you.”

Logan chased the giggling ruffian down the spiraling stairs of Lannair Castle and into the great hall, where a dozen people were making ready for the wedding that would take place that evening. Connor barreled straight for the groom himself.

“Not so fast, wee Master Connor.” Rabbie plucked the boy off his feet and looked to Logan. “What’s he done now?”

Logan made a ‘steady’ gesture. “Easy. Dinna jostle him.”

He approached his little hellion of a son with hands up, speaking in a low, soothing voice. “Now Connor, you know how much those beasties mean to your mum. She won’t take … Read More »

As promised, here’s the first part of my bonus epilogue for WHEN A SCOT TIES THE KNOT! Parts 2 and 3 will follow on Wednesday and Friday, respectively. I’m glad that readers have kept asking about Maddie, Logan, and all the men – I had a lovely time visiting with them again, and I hope you’ll feel the same.

It’s here! It’s finally here! Do You Want to Start a Scandal, Charlotte and Piers’s story, is available in print, digital, and audio. Oh, I had so much fun with these two and their romance. I hope all my readers do, too.

If the Marquess of Granville had made up his mind to be her champion... It would take a stronger woman than Charlotte to refuse.

Don’t forget! Sunday, October 2nd, 4pm PT: In-person and Virtual Release Party at The Ripped Bodice in Culver City, CA. If you can’t make it into the store, we’ll be streaming part of the event via Facebook Live (watch my FB page for more details), and you can preorder a personalized signed copy and it will be mailed to you!
