Christmas Comes Early!

Nov 1, 2018

Lots of Christmas news is coming your way over the next few weeks starting today.

Claiming His Christmas Wife comes out December 1st, but if you want Christmas to come early, it releases on Harlequin and Mills & Boon UK today.

Imogen is one of my favourite heroines. She had a horrible father and a very sad childhood. Her marriage to Travis didn’t work out, but she soldiered on and now she has collapsed in the street.

Travis is notified as her next of kin and fears the worst. Here’s his initial reaction:

Whatever old anger had sent him soaring at the mention of his ex-wife exploded in a percussive flash. He was blind. Falling. Wind whistling in his ears. Air moving too fast for him to catch a gulp.

“What happened?” he managed to grit out. He was dimly aware his eyes were closed, but she was right there in front of him. Laughing, green eyes glimmering with mischief, hair a halo of flames licking at her snowy complexion. Swerving her lashes to cut him a glance. So enchantingly beautiful. Gaze clouding with arousal. Sparking with anger. Looking so wounded and vulnerable that last time he’d seen her, his heart still dipped thinking of it.

He’d quickly learned it was a lie, but that didn’t make any of this easier to accept.

Gone? He couldn’t make it fit in his head. He had told her he never wanted to see her again, but discovered he had secretly believed he would.

From far away, he heard the woman say, “She collapsed on the street. She’s feverish and unconscious. Do you know of any medication we should be aware of? She’s awaiting treatment, but—”

“She’s not dead?” He heard how that sounded as it came out, as if that was what he would have preferred, but leave it to Imogen to set him up to believe one thing, contort his emotions to unbearable degrees, then send him flying in another direction. That calculating, betraying, manipulative— If he could get his hands on her, he’d kill her himself.

Imogen drives Travis crazy, but he’s chronically inflexible, so the way she shakes him up is good for him. I hope you adore them as much as I do.

Claiming His Christmas Wife will be on shelves mid-November and will release on all digital platforms December 1st, but if you want to read it early, you can get it today from:

Cover Reveal – A Virgin to Redeem the Billionaire

Oct 29, 2018

This doesn’t usually happen, but I’ve received both my North American and UK covers for A Virgin to Redeem the Billionaire on the same day.

I can’t decide which one I prefer. The models are perfect in both. I adore everything in the NA cover from the way Gisella’s pink dress matches my website to the backdrop of San Francisco, but the UK one does such a nice job of capturing the mood between these two with the cool colors and smoky/tender gaze.

 

Which one do you like?

A Virgin to Redeem the Billionaire doesn’t come out until next spring, but now I’m so impatient for it to arrive! It’s the first in my Barsi on Fifth earring duet.

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…


If you want to pre-order, quick links are here


Watch for Book Two, Innocent’s Nine Month Scandal featuring Gisella’s cousin Rozalia and Viktor. When Rozi travels to Budapest to ask Viktor for the second earring, she winds up seduced, pregnant, and…married?

Coming Soon: Untouched Until Her Ultra-Rich Husband

Oct 22, 2018

I woke up to an email from my editor in London that Untouched Until Her Ultra-Rich Husband has been accepted for publication in Jun 2019. (Yay!)

I would have loved to crack some champagne, but it was seven in the morning and I had to drive over the pass for an all-day car appointment. I still haven’t had any alcohol, but I managed to spent two hours setting up this book on my website as Untouched BY Her Ultra-Rich Husband. Which is probably a book that exists or will one day, but my title is UNTIL. I think I’ve caught all the places where I had it wrong, but if you spot the typo anywhere, please tell me.

I don’t have a blurb yet, but basically Gabriel inherits his grandmother’s fortune and becomes the world’s first trillionaire. Then he learns he has also inherited a virgin.

His grandmother was planning for him to marry Luli–who just wants to get to America. This might be a win-win if he can keep his hands off her. #Spoileralert: He can’t. And doesn’t.

You can read the opening chapters and my author notes here.

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!

Opposites attract in this sensational royal romance

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!

Here’s the blurb:

Pregnant with the billionaire’s babies!

After the painfully public demise of her intense fling with renowned tycoon Henri Sauveterre, Cinnia Whitley discovers she’s pregnant…with twins! Cinnia burns with the memory of his touch, but bearing a new generation of the Sauveterre dynasty will bind her to Henri forever—unless she keeps it a secret…

Henri is infuriated when he discovers Cinnia’s deception. His little sister’s abduction ended all his intentions of having a family—but anySauveterre deserves his full protection. Henri must make Cinnia his wife, and he’ll show her just how pleasurable their reunion can be!
