I can’t believe it’s less than a week until the release of A Night to Surrender! The book has been getting some very exciting reviews. Yes, that sound you hear is me tooting my own horn. Toot. Ahem.

(you can click the links to read the full reviews)

Library Journal weighed in with this lovely recommendation:

“Lively and sexy, this funny, enjoyable battle of the sexes ensnares readers in a delightful adventure.”

All About Romance gave the book its coveted “Desert Isle Keeper” rating, and reviewer Wendy Clyde said:

If you love strong but vulnerable heroes and and smart, wounded heroines, you’ll love this book. If you like humor in your romance, you’ll love this book. If you like a well-written historical romance, you’ll love this book. Whatever your preference, when you read the last page you’ll undoubtedly clutch the book to your chest and sigh.

I siiighed at the end of that review!

Night Owl Reviews gave the book 5 stars and a Top Pick, calling ANTS

“one of the best historical romances I’ve ever read. It’s humorous and light-hearted, steamy and seductive, filled with intriguing characters and wonderful dialogue.”

And at Reader-to-Reader reviews, Joyce Greenfield had this to say:

From the very first page, this story seduces the reader, drawing you in and refusing to let go till the last page is turned.

Hmm. I’m now a little afraid of over-tooting. But I’m just so glad readers are enjoying Spindle Cove in general, and Susanna and Bram’s story in particular. I hope you enjoy it, too!


Sadly, I don’t have time to make a dareling room toy video for A Night to Surrender. Or I should say, I could possibly find time to make a kind of boring, uninspired video. But I don’t want to subject you to that, after the special effects extravaganza that was the Maya Banks Highlander project.

However, here are some other videos!

Here I am chatting with the lovely and gracious Whitney Sullivan of RT Book Reviews magazine, about Spindle Cove and the new book:

Here’s me again, talking about the importance of Avon’s KISS and Teal campaign:

As you can see from these videos, Tessa likes to change her hair color! A lot.

    Man I am so excited! I have a 2 month old (as of the 1st of September) and am a stay at home mom now. While I miss working, I don’t miss my old job and have plenty of time to stay home and read! I love the evenings when my hubby gets home, takes over with the baby, and I get a bath and reading time! Baby Daniel and I will be making the trek to our local bookstore on Tuesday!

    I can’t wait to read about Susanna because the whole time I’m going to be imagining…and wishing…she was really me:) I’m glad my name inspired you!!!! I already know I’ll love it!

      Congratulations on your new baby, Susanna! I was a stay-at-home mom with a newborn, and I definitely know the elation of that moment when Daddy comes home and you get some time to yourself! And thank you so much for letting me “borrow” your name. I hope you enjoy the story!
