by on Aug.06, 2014, under Author news, Bookshelf

An Heir of Uncertainty

The audiobook version of An Heir of Uncertainty will be voiced by actress Rebecca Courtney.


I found out today that the narrator has been cast for An Heir of Uncertainty. She’s an actress named Rebecca Courtney, and she’s not only performed a wide variety of voiceover work, but also appeared on the stage and screen.

I’ll post a release date as soon as I have one.

Another regency on the way (eventually)

1815 portrait of Count Sergey Uvarov

Portrait of Count Sergey Uvarov, by Orest Kiprensky (1815). This portrait was painted in the year my next story opens.

I just found out today that Carina Press is interested in publishing my next regency, a “reigniting the marriage” story about a couple who’ve been estranged for five years, ever since the bride ran away on their wedding night.

Now comes the hard part–I have to finish the manuscript.

I’ll post more when I have information on the release date.

The Italian title of A Tryst With Trouble translates to “A Marquess in Charge” or “A Marquess Accused.”

I’ll be heading tomorrow to the Romance Writers of America conference in San Antonio, Texas. Before I go, though, I have a couple pieces of news.

First–and this is always fun for me–I just learned that A Tryst With Trouble now has an Italian translation: UN MARCHESE SOTTO ACCUSA (A Marquess in Charge). That’s the cover image to the left.

Second, I just learned this morning that the audiobook version of An Heir of Uncertainty has gone into production. I still don’t have a release date or know the identity of the narrator, but I’ll post more when I do.

Cover of Ruined by Rumor

As promised (if a couple of weeks later than expected), RUINED BY RUMOR is now available in paperback. You can find it here: RUINED BY RUMOR*

If you know any regency romance fans who love reading but have never made the switch to e-books, I hope you’ll consider recommending RUINED BY RUMOR to them, since Carina Press will be using the sales figures from this pilot program to determine whether they bring out more regency titles in print.

*Don’t miss Amazon’s animation that lets readers flip to the back cover of the book. Isn’t it cool?

Why I’m Humming The Beatles’ “Paperback Writer”….

by on Apr.25, 2014, under Author news

I’m so excited–I just learned from my publisher that my first regency, Ruined by Rumor, is going to be available in print! The book will go on sale June 2nd as a trade paperback. If you know any regency romance fans who prefer traditional paperbacks to e-books, please spread the word. The more successful the format is, the more likely Carina Press will be to offer more regencies in print.

I’ll post a link to the paperback edition as soon as it goes up on Amazon.

An Heir of Uncertainty

An Heir of Uncertainty is now available at Amazon and all major e-book retailers.

I’m so excited–it’s release day for my newest regency, An Heir of Uncertainty!

A mystery wrapped in a romance, it’s the story of the two possible claimaints for a title and the dazzling fortune that comes with it: Colonel Win Vaughan, distant cousin to the late Earl of Radbourne, and the child that Lina, the earl’s young widow, is carrying. Only one  can inherit, so when danger begins to swirl around Lina and her unborn child, can she possibly trust Win?

You can order An Heir of Uncertainty here. I hope you enjoy it!
