Release Day Mania!!

Towards the end of last year I was in a minor panic about having two releases within two weeks of each other but so far, i am thoroughly enjoying myself!

Having carefully scheduled guest interviews/blogs as well as making sure I was around to chat with readers and visitors made last week's blog tour for my new Victorian romance, THE TEMPTATION OF LAURA, run like clockwork. I really enjoyed myself and spoke to lots of new readers I hadn't 'met' before. Of course, it also helped that Kensington, my publisher, offered the debut of the series, THE SEDUCTION OF EMILY for a 'freebie week' on Barnes & Noble leading up to Laura's release.

Emily has received over 20 five star reviews on Amazon - I am thrilled!


Laura Robinson has always been dazzled by the glamour of the stage. But perhaps acting and selling one’s favors are not so different—for Laura must feign pleasure with the men she beds to survive. Now, with her only friend at death’s door and a ruthless pimp at her heels, escaping her occupation seems impossible. Hoping to attract a gentleman, she attends the theater. Yet the man Laura captivates is no customer, but a rising star and playwright…

Adam Lacey has been driven to distraction since the moment he saw Laura. She is his ideal leading lady come to irresistible life—and so much more. Certain they can make the perfect team on and off stage, he is determined to win her heart—and discover her story. But that is precisely what Laura fears. And she has no idea that Adam harbors shameful secrets of his own. Will the truth free them to love—or destroy all their dreams…?

Okay, so it's onward and upwards with my next release...WHAT BELONGS TO HER releases from Harlequin Superromance TODAY!! So excited...this book might just be my favourite Templeton Cove story so far :)

Set against the backdrop of the town's fairground, WHAT BELONGS TO HER is the third book in the series and this one is mainstream romance as opposed to the first two being romantic suspense. I am contracted for two more books in the series which makes things even sweeter! Book 4 is due for release  Christmas 2014 and the next one...well, I need to write it first, lol!

I really hope you download your copy or buy a paperback and let me know what you think - stories set in the same town are my preferred choices of romance and women's fiction. What about you? I will also be starting a blog tour for WHAT BELONGS TO HER tomorrow, I hope you can join me!


She's ready to take back what's hers 
Since the moment a local crime boss claimed ownership of her family's fairground, Sasha Todd has dreamed of righting the wrong. Now it's time to act, and backing down from the man's estranged son is definitely not an option. After all, giving up her legacy to hot-blooded John Jordon means losing the chance to finally heal the wounds in her past. 
Stopping John in his tracks—and resisting the sizzle between them—is Sasha's best defense. But there's more to him than she thought, which changes everything. With what matters most at stake, she'll have to risk a brand-new future with John, or walk away from the man whose heart belongs to her.
