A Sexy Cover for an Innocent in the Sheikh’s Palace

Jul 4, 2020

If you’re one of my American friends, Happy Independence Day!

I woke up to this lovely cover for my November book, Innocent in the Sheikh’s Palace.

If you follow my newsletter, this is the ugly duckling inspired story I was working on last year. The story opens with Akin confronting Hannah at the fertility clinic where she went to start the family she desperately wants. A mixup has given her Akin’s brother’s sperm. And his brother was the future king of Baaqi. Now her baby is!

I adore Hannah and Akin. She’s got a real spark of wit and he doesn’t have any time for it, but very soon can’t live without her. Here’s the official blurb:

His desert vow…

To crown the virgin’s baby!

Having failed to find Mr. Right, plain librarian Hannah Meeks decided to start the family she’s desperately wanted on her own. Only to discover that her miracle baby is actually the heir to the throne of Baaqi…

Sheikh Akin Sarraf was the unwanted spare. Now, finding out his late brother had unknowingly fathered a child, Akin’s duty is to bring Hannah to his palace and make her his wife! Marrying for love was always out of the question. But Hannah’s independent spirit is exasperating…until it’s intoxicating…

Happy Canada Day!

Jul 1, 2020

I’m tremendously grateful to be Canadian, especially these days. Through good luck and good leadership (shout out to our Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry among others) I’ve been able to get a haircut and return to the gym. Things aren’t back to normal, but the new normal is okay.

So I will take today to be thankful I was born in Canada while acknowledging I currently live and write and thrive on the unceded territory of the Sinixt Nation. Canada isn’t perfect. We have a lot of work to do with racial justice particularly with our indigenous community. At the same time, there is no place in the world I would rather be right now.

Do you need a little Canada in your life? I’ve published five Canadian heroines (soon to be six! See What the Greek’s Wife Needs). I have yet to write a Canadian hero, but I have plans to remedy that.

Meanwhile, if you’re looking for for a heroine who is polite, nice, says ‘sorry’ a little too often, but will drop the gloves and fight like a hockey goon if she has to, meet: Lauren, Natalie, Cami, Poppy, and Sopi.
