Sheikh’s Princess of Convenience – on eBook today!

Oct 1, 2018

Sheikh’s Princess of Convenience should be arriving on your eReader today. If not, you’ll find it on all your favourite eBook retailer sites.

Sheikh’s Princess of Convenience is book three in the Bound by the Desert King quartet, a multi-author quartet I wrote with Tara Pammi, Maya Blake and Caitlin Crews. (Learn more about how this quartet came about in my Author Notes.)

Here’s what readers are saying on Goodreads:

“It’s a classic Harlequin with a little more HOT scenes involved.”

“The characters are both quite feisty, and watching them come together and attempt to fight their attraction at the same time as they are giving in to it is quite a fun endeavor!”

One of my favourite parts about writing this book was figuring out how to plant clues that Galila could discover to reveal the identity of her mother’s lover (who happens to be Karim’s father.) I took inspiration from a pair of bookends I found online and had Galila pair them up:

Karim will do anything to protect his kingdom

Even blackmail Galila into marriage!

Sheikh Karim is as ruthless as the harsh desert that forged him. Entertaining bubbly Princess Galila at a royal wedding seems frivolous…until she reveals his family’s darkest secret. To protect their honor, Karim must seduce Galila into silence! The raw heat of their encounter stuns him…and inspires a more permanent solution. To prevent a scandal, Karim will make impetuous Galila his convenient bride!

Thank You!

Sep 28, 2018

Thank you, Thank you, Dear Reader, for picking up His Mistress with Two Secrets last week. Boy, did you make a splash with it!

 

I was thrilled when I saw that lovely orange Bestseller tag on Amazon.

It reached #1 in Mothers & Children and got all the way to #18 on Kindle overall. That is a huge deal!

To put it in perspective, for one night, my book was only 17 spots behind Bob Woodward’s book, Fear.

Color. Me. Astonished.

 

Today I learned it also made the USA Today Bestseller list. What, what, what?

Thank you, thank you, Dear Reader. You rock my world!

Title Change – A Virgin to Redeem the Billionaire

Sep 9, 2018

You might have noticed that A Virgin for the Billionaire’s Revenge has undergone a small revision. It’s now A Virgin to Redeem the Billionaire.

No cover on this one yet, but here’s the blurb:

He’ll make her pay…

Until he learns of her innocence!

Self-made billionaire Kaine Michaels has just given Gisella Drummond, daughter of one of New York’s most influential dynasties, a shocking ultimatum: use her spotless reputation to save his own or he’ll ruin her family for betraying him! Kaine knows Gisella wants him, and he knows how much pleasure he can give her! But uncovering sweet Gisella’s virginity makes Kaine want her for so much more than revenge…

A Virgin to Redeem the Billionaire comes out March 2019. Preorder here.

Want Sheikh’s Princess of Convenience Early?

Sep 1, 2018

Sheikh’s Princess of Convenience is available now on Harlequin and Mills and Boon UK and Australia!

I loved writing Sheikh’s Princess of Convenience for many reasons. First of all, Galila is cute and assertive and spoiled, but deep down she’s very sensitive and has a wonderful capacity for love. Karim has carried the weight of family secrets for years and really needs a woman he can count on. He’s also one of my favourite types of heroes who thinks he’s being brave and doing what’s right for everyone, but he’s actually a complete dope and needs to let down his guard and let someone love him already.

Another thing that made this book fun was writing it with some of my favourite author friends–Tara Pammi, Maya Blake and Caitlin Crews!

Sheikh’s Princess of Convenience is book three in a quartet with these lovelies. Want to know more about how this collaboration came about? Read my Author Notes.

Look for Sheikh’s Princess of Convenience in stores Sep 18 and download from all digital platforms on Oct 1. Pre-Order here.

Here’s a little snippet to whet your appetite (pun intended!):

“Your dress is getting wet.”

The male voice, so deep and velvety it matched the caress of the warm night air, had her turning to peer into the shadows, expecting— Well, she didn’t know who she expected. A man, yes, but not such a man.

He leaned against the edge of an archway, features sharpened by the low light and framed by the drape of his ghutra. He was dangerous and handsome at once. Dangerously handsome with those dark, deeply set eyes and strong jaw beneath a short, black beard. Breath-stealing, in fact, in his gold-trimmed bisht that might have been a deep merlot color. It hung open across wide shoulders to reveal his embroidered thobe, tailored to his muscled chest, collar closed at his throat and decorated by a yellow-sapphire the size of her fist.

She told herself it was the alcohol that made her sway, but she suspected it was the impact of his virility.

He straightened and held out a hand. “Come. Before you ruin perfection.”
