UK Readers – A secret deal on The Secret Beneath the Veil

Jan 19, 2018

I’m still on vacation, but some fun news for my UK readers hit my in-box and I had to share.

The Secret Beneath the Veil is on sale for 99p on Amazon UK until mid-Feb. I believe it’s already marked down, but I’m not in the UK so Amazon won’t let me see the price. Please double-check the cost before you buy.

Vivi is one of my favourite heroines and Mikolas breaks my heart. This one has a very dramatic opening that you can read here. Enjoy!

On The Edge hits eReaders today!

Jan 16, 2018

It’s launch day for On The Edge. Hooray!

When I began writing On The Edge, I knew I wanted Glory to be a romance writer, but in the closet about her aspiration. She’s the daughter of a famous romance author and manages her late mother’s literary estate to provide her father an income. However, along with family issues, she has personal baggage that makes her hesitant to show anyone her work. Worst of all, since her mother’s death, she’s been suffering writer’s block.

All of that changes when she arrives at Blue Spruce Lodge in Montana. She starts hearing her imaginary friends after a long while and it’s the first steps from grief toward the person she is meant to become.

If you want a peek inside a writer’s mind, here you go. Glory has characters show up out of the blue and has to wait and listen while they fill in the details that build out their story.

In fact, I included the manuscript she works on each time she sits down to write. Within the pages of On The Edge, you’ll read what becomes Glory’s debut book, Blessed Winter. It’s a book within a book. Kind of like a subplot, but it takes place in Tahoe with a hero she bases on Rolf.

Rolf is my edgiest, most arrogant hero yet. He’s a gold-medal alpine champion, very focused and motivated by self-interest. I wanted him to be the iconic, controlling alpha that every romance author loves to make fall hard for the most unlikely heroine, but only after she has every reason to hate him. Everything comes easy to him, but he has to work for Glory’s heart and he does.

I hope you enjoy watching Rolf, the champion, go after a new type of ‘Glory,’ while Glory figures out how to write her own story, finding her hero in Rolf along the way.

Fun fact: Blessed Winter is the long-awaited sequel to Cruel Summer, the book you receive when you subscribe to my newsletter.

Prince’s Son of Scandal releases today!

Jan 1, 2018

Happy New Year!

I’m thrilled to start the year by telling you that Trella, the fourth and final Sauveterre Sibling, releases on all platforms today.

Trella has been a recluse for years, so I suppose it’s apropos that she has only been glimpsed here and there in her secretly-pregnant-by-a-prince glory. She first showed up on Netgalley, where one reviewer was kind enough to say this about Prince’s Son of Scandal:

“A stunning conclusion to a fantastically dramatic and emotional series about the four siblings.”

Or you might have caught her early at Harlequin.com, where one reviewer very, very kindly said:

“Loved all the books in this series. Dani Collins has eclipsed my old favourite authors and become the one I look forward to the most!”

Excuse me while I have a little cry of gratitude over here and pinch myself while I’m at it. Writing for Harlequin Presents was my dream for twenty-five years.

If you also love Harlequin Presents, along with royalty, scandal, secret babies, a cold and distant hero who kidnaps the heroine then quickly turns protective and marries her, but cannot fall in love with her, plus twins, drama, angst and the occasional one-liner of wit, then look for Prince’s Son of Scandal wherever you buy your digital books. You might still find her on shelves, too.

Welcome to 2018! I hope it’s wonderful to you.

Happy Holidays…

Dec 20, 2017

While you’re finishing your shopping, look for Prince’s Son Of Scandal in the book section. Trella would make a lovely stocking stuffer for someone special–I’m talking about you, of course.

I very much hope you have time through this busy season to settle in with a snuggly blanket, some tea and a romance that makes you sigh with satisfaction. May you also make merry with those who are special to you.

Have a safe and wonderful Christmas.

Mills & Boon’s New Look

Dec 11, 2017

Did you know Mills & Boon has had a make-over? Starting in 2018, their covers will have a new look. I just saw the cover for my April Mills & Boon Modern book, Consequence of His Revenge.

FYI, I didn’t plan it this way, but this book comes out right after the Winter Olympics and if you read my author notes, you’ll see that I originally got the idea for this book when I learned the Olympics were coming to Vancouver in 2010.

I had so much fun with Dante’s quest for revenge and positively ruthless desire to destroy Cami’s life. No wonder Cami has such a disdainful look on her face here.

Read the excerpt for a taste of this one.

Have you seen my Facebook Live video?

Dec 6, 2017

I just saw that my Facebook Live video has been watched over two thousand times since I did it a month ago. Have you had a chance to watch it?

I talk about my contribution to Secrets of the A-List, which is a family saga, and explain how it’s different from something like my Sauveterre Siblings quartet. I also read an excerpt and talk about how writing an episode in a serial is different from writing romance, plus I answer a bunch of your questions. It was fun!

You can watch it here:

Trella is a hit in the UK!

Dec 6, 2017

I’ve had my head buried in revisions and haven’t had much time for promoting Prince’s Son of Scandal, but I just popped onto the Mills and Boon site to see how Trella is doing and there she was, sitting in the Bestseller spot.

Thank you so much, UK readers! Best Christmas present ever.

I must rush back to my year-end deadlines, but seriously, thank you.
