My 45th Harlequin! How did that happen?

Aug 1, 2021

My 45th book with Harlequin published on their site today!

I’m kind of astonished. Back when I was dreaming of writing for Harlequin, all I wanted was to publish one book with them. I didn’t project to ever having so many titles and it’s kind of surreal.

It’s all thanks to you, dedicated reader and fan of romance, for buying my books and writing your encouraging notes to me.

I tend to get lost in the daily struggle for word count. (I’m currently wrestling book #47 and it has me pinned. I’m pretty sure it’s the one that will end my career, which is how I feel about nearly all of them at the 30K mark.)

But when I have a moment to come up for air and realize where I am at, and can celebrate with you, I’m ever so grateful for this wonderful career you’ve helped me achieve! Thank you!

Now, I should probably tell you a little about this actual book. It’s the second in my Secret Sisters duet, about a pair of identical twins separated at birth who discover their biological mother was actually a Bollywood superstar.

Here’s the blurb for Manhattan’s Most Scandalous Reunion:

He can’t turn her away, and it has nothing to do with the media storm outside his penthouse!

She left him.

That doesn’t mean she’s forgotten him.

When paparazzi mistake Nina Menendez for a supermodel, she takes refuge in her ex’s New York penthouse. Big mistake. Guarded Reve Weston is incapable of emotional intimacy—and is intensely seductive…

Reve has had enough of scandal. To keep his name out of the tabloids, he insists Nina stay with him. But as their spark reignites and she shares the mysteries of her past, Reve realizes his cynicism has a downside. If he can’t give Nina the fairy tale she dreams of, he’ll have to let her go…for good!

Manhattan’s Most Scandalous Reunion is available on Harlequin and Mills & Boon UK today.

Be sure to look for Book One in this duet, Married for One Reason Only, on shelves and available at your favourite online retailer now.

Convenient vows…

…for their baby’s sake!

His brief was simple: confirm whether model Oriel Cuvier is the secret daughter of a Bollywood legend. But when billionaire security specialist Vijay Sahir locks eyes with Oriel, all thoughts of work disappear—leading to a few stolen hours where all rules are broken…

Weeks later, Oriel gets two life-changing surprises. First, the truth about her birth mother. Second, she’s pregnant with Vijay’s child! He demands marriage, but can she really promise to honor and cherish him when, until now, all they’ve shared is one extraordinary encounter?

KU Readers – One more title for your TBR

Jul 1, 2021

Fun News for Kindle Unlimited readers – Innocent in the Sheikh’s Palace will be on Kindle Unlimited/Prime from July 1-Sept 30.

This reader favorite started out as an Ugly Duckling retelling (but Hannah is more of an odd duck, trying to find her place.) She decides to have a baby on her own, but wouldn’t you know the clinic mixes up the sperm and she winds up carrying the next King of Baaqi. His uncle, Akin, insists they marry and whisks her away to a new life–where she turns his life upside down.

I hope you’ll check it out and, while you’re at it, dip into Hustled to the Altar and The Healer, both also exclusively on KU until September.

Happy Reading!

More Manga! Untouched Until Her Ultra-Rich Husband

Jun 27, 2021

I’m always so thrilled when a new manga shows up. This one is a fun rendition of Untouched Until Her Ultra-Rich Husband and it’s gorgeous!

This marriage-of-convenience sweeps wide-eyed Luli into Gabriel’s over-the-top world. I love that despite her tremendously sheltered upbringing, she is a computer genius who rivals Gabriel’s skills and they really are perfect for one another, once they wade through the disasters of their personal lives.

Early Delivery of Her Impossible Baby Bombshell

May 1, 2021

I had the highest praise from a fan who wrote to tell me this one was “sigh” awesome and she’d already put it on her keeper shelf. (Picture me clutching my chest and blinking back tears.)

When I started this book, I wanted to flip the unplanned pregnancy onto the hero. Romance heroes are always shocked to discover that sex makes babies–seriously, we gotta distribute some information pamphlets or something–but in this case Jun Li has every reason to be stunned. He had a vasectomy when he was in university.

Ivy isn’t looking to obligate him. She wants some health information and figures he should, you know, be careful in future. Of course, his head is exploding because this was never supposed to happen. Now that it has, well, they’re in for a marriage of convenience, sexy times and some drama that I won’t spoil. I hope you enjoy it!

Her Impossible Baby Bombshell releases May 25th, but you can get it today if you shop Harlequin.com or Mills & Boon UK.

In Too Deep – 99c for a few days only

Apr 26, 2021

Need a quick, cheap get away? Check into Blue Spruce Lodge, a very affordable place to visit, especially right now. In Too Deep, the third book in this sexy, funny, emotional trilogy is only 99c.

When I was writing From The Top, I had Trigg confide in Nate that he’d had a teen pregnancy scare.

Wait a minute, I thought almost immediately. What if that scare had actually turned into a baby? One who turns up to throw the extremely confident and very confirmed bachelor, Trigg, into a tailspin?

Writing In Too Deep was almost too fun. Trigg seriously doesn’t know how to be a father of a child of any age, let alone a girl hitting adolescence. Sky is a handful at the best of times and here comes pre-teen drama in spades!

What I didn’t know until I’d written the ending of From The Top was what kind of heroine Trigg was getting. All I knew was that the girl who’d been pregnant had had a father who forced her to go through with the pregnancy.

Somehow Wren appeared as that girl’s sister. She’s mousy and way too young to be raising a twelve-year-old, but so resilient and determined to do right by her sister’s kid. Trigg is a handful in his own way and she needed to be tough enough to stand up to him, which she does. And he falls for her. Hard. Sky is not happy.

In some ways, this is a love triangle with all three of them figuring out their role in this family they’re forming. I hope you enjoy it!

If you like to read in order, you’ll want the first two books in the Blue Spruce Lodge trilogy On The Edge and From The Top.

Blue Spruce Lodge is a five-star destination for jetsetters seeking ski-in/ski out accommodation on the newly restored Whiskey Jack Ski Resort.

Or it will be, just as soon as the Johansson brothers, alpine and snowboard champions, find someone to renovate the lodge, dig the resort out from an old avalanche, conquer the protests of hostile locals, and hopefully avoid killing each other in the process.

There is absolutely no room for love at this inn. Or is there?

Scandal Befitting a Princess – Free Read on Harlequin.com

Apr 12, 2021

If you enjoyed Ways to Ruin a Royal Reputation, perhaps you’d enjoy a Scandal Befitting a Princess?

This free online read has been posting on Mills & Boon’s site since the first week of April, but it has now started posting on Harlequin.com. Don’t hate me, but there are twenty chapters that post (I think) three a week. I’ll let you know when it’s all available in case you prefer to read the whole thing at once.

Scandal Befitting a Princess stars Sofia, the twin for whom Luca gives up his crown in Ways to Ruin a Royal Reputation. She is falling for Laszlo, but things are very complicated when you suddenly become a queen.

Here’s the official blurb which is really just a teaser because it’s a short, fast-paced story:

When her brother is disgraced, Princess Sofia must be crowned Queen. Can she have love and the throne or will her own scandal ruin both?

I hope you enjoy this sexy side-dish to the Signed, Sealed…Seduced trilogy. After you read this and my Ways to Ruin a Royal Reputation, you’ll want to check out:

Cinderella’s Night in Venice by Clare Connelly and The Playboy’s “I Do” Deal by Tara Pammi.
