Have you met my Feuding Billionaire Brothers?

May 1, 2020

Hooray! It’s official launch day for A Hidden Heir to Redeem Him, the first book in my Feuding Billionaire Brothers duet.

If you like edgy, vengeful heroes who are undone by a hidden baby and the love they don’t recognize until it’s almost too late, you’ll fall for Val. If you’re celebrating Mother’s Day this month, as we are here in North America, you might also enjoy Kiara’s devotion to their sweet daughter Aurelia. To be honest, Aurelia kind of steals the show. She’s adorable.

And, pssst, if you’ve already read A Hidden Heir to Redeem Him and you’re ready for Book Two, Beauty and Her One-Night Baby, you can get it today if you buy direct from Harlequin or Mills and Boon.

Here we have a beastly Javiero, still recovering from being attacked by a Jaguar. As Scarlett goes into labor, she confesses that she’s been keeping his unborn heir a secret. Javiero is already carrying a grudge against his father and his half-brother. The fact Scarlett seems in league with both makes him furious, but he wants his baby. I love this pair for the fact they already love each other, deep down, but they take a long time to let down their guard and admit it.

Check Out My *Gorgeous* Covers for Confessions

Apr 29, 2020

Hell hath no fury like a woman whose husband faked his own death.

With all the disruptions lately, I thought I would have to wait longer for my cover for Confessions of an Italian Marriage, but here it is! And I’m thrilled! (Honestly, where is the Harlequin art department getting their jewelry because star-eyes.)

If you follow my newsletter, you’ll know this one as Freja and Giovanni aka The One Where The Husband Fakes His Own Death.

Fun Fact: I was super annoyed at the way Veronica Mars Season Four ended. (Spoiler alert) Logan died and I wanted to believe he faked his death to protect Veronica. That became my inspiration for Giovanni’s ‘death.’

I couldn’t make Freja a detective, but I needed to make her very resourceful and independent, which became a pretty complex backstory. Freja has been through a lot so she’s not just, “Oh, good, you’re alive.” She’s mad. But she’s preparing to marry someone else so Giovanni’s got an axe to grind as well.

Then I took a chance with the way I structured the book and figured my editor would tell me to change it, but she said she read it in one sitting and accepted it without revisions so I guess it worked.

Here’s the official blurb:

He’s back to reclaim her…

But where has he been?

What do you do when your husband goes missing? Flush him out by pretending to marry again! Billionaire Giovanni’s dramatic return forces Freja to confront the deep hurt she felt at his desertion…and the sparks that continue to fly between them…

Giovanni had to go into hiding to protect his new bride, but he’s shocked by the consequences his mysterious past had on Freja. Now he’ll have to let her in closer than he’s allowed anyone before if he’s to save the whirlwind marriage he’s suddenly so compelled to fight for!

I can’t wait to share more of this one with you. You can read the first two chapters on my website. And if you want to know why I chose to put Giovanni in a wheelchair, read my Author Notes.

Did you know you can get A Hidden Heir to Redeem Him early? (Today)

Apr 1, 2020

You can get A Hidden Heir to Redeem Him today–no fooling!–if you shop on Harlequin.com or MillsandBoon.co.uk.

If you’re a member of my bi-monthly newsletter*, you might remember my updates last year as I wrote what I was calling my Brothers Grim. This duet features a pair of competitive alpha-heroes who are half-brothers and can’t stand one other (for many good reasons.) I’m thrilled that these dark, grumpy heroes are finally emerging into the light, starting with Book One releasing direct from Harlequin.com and MillsandBoon.co.uk today.

Officially the duet is titled Feuding Billionaire Brothers and Book One is A Hidden Heir to Redeem Him.

Val, illegitimate black sheep and former underwear model, has just discovered sensitive Kiara had his baby–three years ago. He’s bitter and resentful and wants to walk away, but he can’t. He instantly falls in love with his daughter (which I confess still gives me heart palpitations.) Learning to trust Kiara takes more time, but they are absolutely perfect for one another. I hope you adore them as much as I do!

Be sure to check back for Book Two, Beauty and her One-Night Baby, where scarred and embittered Javiero discovers his father’s PA, Scarlett, is pregnant with his baby when he shows up for the reading of his father’s will and she goes into labor!

Thank You for making Mastering Her Role #1

Mar 30, 2020

I hope you I don’t jinx myself by saying this, but Thank You for making Mastering Her Role #1 on several of Amazon’s Best Seller Lists! It’s still hanging in there on Fantasy Erotica after five days so I had to say a huge THANK YOU.

It’s still 99c, but tomorrow the price will start to go up to $1.99 for about a week before it returns to its regular price of $4.99, so if you haven’t grabbed it at the sale price, buy it now.

And if you enjoyed it, you might like to pick up Playing the Master, the companion novel to Mastering Her Role. It’s a different couple and both can be read as stand-alone stories, but if you enjoyed Dominic and Arianne, they make an appearance in Playing the Master.

ICYMI – Mastering Her Role 99c

Mar 22, 2020

Did you see this? Mastering Her Role is 99c until the end of March.

In Mastering Her Role, Arianne has a terrible crush on her neighbour, Jason. She’s wasn’t feeling very confident in the bedroom department before she learned he had a sexy alter-ego, Dominic. If she wants a shot with him, she figures she better catch up so she asks Jason to introduce her to Dominic, but he’d rather keep that guy out of their relationship. Nevertheless, they’re soon meeting in a hotel room, getting to know more about each other than they ever thought they would.

When I originally sold Mastering Her Role to Harlequin for their eHarlequin imprint, it was part of a two-book contract, so I wrote Playing The Master as a companion novel. They can be read as standalone, but Dominic and Arianne make a cameo appearance in the second book. If you enjoy Mastering Her Role, you might also enjoy Playing The Master.

Note: They’ve had three different covers, so check to see if you already have them.

Mastering Her Role is 99c until March 31st. Find all the buy links here:

This cover is a Beauty!

Feb 22, 2020

The UK cover for Beauty and Her One-Night Baby just arrived and it’s so pretty!

Beauty and Her One-Night Baby is part of Harlequin’s fairy tale month, so look for take-offs from all your favourites. Here’s the blurb:

From irresistible beast in the bedroom…

to father of her child!

The first time Javiero Rodriguez sees CEO Scarlett Walker after their impassioned night together, she’s in labor with his baby! No matter how shocking the surprise, Javiero won’t let his son grow up in a broken home like he did.

Scarlett has worked hard for independence and she can’t accept empty vows. Yet the scars Javiero gained in a jaguar attack haven’t lessened the tycoon’s rugged appeal. Which means every day is a heated reminder of the pleasure they shared…and could share again!

Beauty and Her One-Night Baby one is also the second in my Feuding Billionaire Brothers duet. Look for Javiero’s brother’s story in A Hidden Heir to Redeem Him, where illegitimate Val discovers sensitive artist Kiara kept his daughter a secret for nearly three years!

Happy #IReadCanadian Day!

Feb 19, 2020

#IReadCanadian is a super-easy day to celebrate! All you have to do is set aside fifteen minutes to read a Canadian author or talk up your love of Canadian literature.

Good news! I’ve got you covered because I’m not only Canadian, but I have a bunch–almost a plethora–of Canadian heroines for you to choose from.

My February Harlequin Presents, Cinderella’s Royal Seduction is the perfect place to start. Sopi grew up near Jasper and the story opens in a spa there.

Poppy in The Maid’s Spanish Secret is from a fictional small town in rural Saskatchewan, and don’t forget Cami in Consequence of His Revenge! She gets fired from her job in Whistler and moves to Vancouver where she learns she is pregnant. Then there’s Lauren in Proof of Their Sin and Natalie in Seduced into the Greek’s World, both from Montreal.

Yes it is time I started writing Canadian heroes…
