It’s always awesome to wake up to a new cover!
This one is kind of special in that part of it is set in Whistler and Vancouver, BC. Very close to home!
I first conceived of it when I heard the 2010 Olympics were coming to BC, which would have been several years before they actually happened.
Yes, this book roamed around my brain for over a decade before I finally got it onto the page. It’s a revenge theme, obviously. Dante hates Cami’s father so much, he fires her, but takes her on as a mistress. Everything blows up and she leaves him, but uh, oh. Guess what? Yup. There be consequences to his revenge.
I hope you’re as excited for this one as I am!

I’m beyond thrilled to announce that Tule Publishing has accepted my new series, Blue Spruce Lodge, for publication with Montana Born in 2018.
The stories are set in the Montana Rockies at Blue Spruce Lodge, a run-down inn on a defunct ski resort. The Johansson brothers, alpine and snowboard champions, envision a five-star destination for elite athletes and jetsetters. It’s an uphill battle to find someone to renovate and run 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.
Book One, On the Edge, will release January 16, 2018 and Book Two, tentatively titled From the Top, will come out Feb 27th. Watch for Books Three and Four later in the year.

Hello, come in. Keep your shoes on or feel free to go barefoot, if that’s your jam.
I’m so excited to have this new space for you. I hope you’ll poke around and please tell me if you find anything needing a quick sweep. I’ve got fabulous new ways to explore series, and a hub for lots of Book Extras. There is much more to come and I will announce all new content via my Site News, which gets posted to my home page and can get zapped right to your inbox or feed reader. Sign up to make sure you’ll get notified of all new content.
First, join me in a quick toast of bubbly to Waxcreative. If you think I reflect well here, it’s because Emily and her team are magicians. They make it so easy for you to navigate quickly, drill down, or simply follow your curiosity around the site — especially on your phone. They also offer two really cool ways for you to stay on top of my news.
Another toast goes to Suzanne LeStage at Eyes of Lestage and Jenny McKinney for a truly fun photo shoot on a hot August day. They are also magicians and I can’t wait until we have time for a glass of wine in person soon.
Finally, a toast to my husband, Doug. Living with an author can be an adventure, but he was faced with one who had two looming deadlines and a website renovation along with our twenty-fifth wedding anniversary smack in the middle of all of it. He is a saint. Feel free to send him an entire bottle of tequila.

My episode of Secrets of the A-List releases today!
Have you been following the Secrets of the A-List? I’m so excited for you to read the next twists and turns for the Marshall family. I wish I could tell you what my episode is about, but this serial has so many cliff-hangers and spoilers, I have to be very careful. You can read a short excerpt here, though, to get a taste of the secrets being kept.
Are you new to Secrets of the A-List? Read more about this family drama in my Author Notes.
I’ll be chatting live about it on Harlequin’s Facebook Page on Nov 7th, too! Join me at 1pm EST, 10am PST.

The third book in my Sauveterre Siblings series is here! In Bound By The Millionaire’s Ring, Ramon is a little rougher around the edges than his sophisticated twin, Henri, and you can get a peek at what I mean in my excerpt.
Isidora loved him through childhood, but lately despises him with all she has in her. She still has to work for him, though. And–when he proposes at a press release — has to pretend she loves him and wants to marry him!
Get the inside scoop in my Author Notes. Want it? Order your copy!

I’m excited to start my contribution to a new multi-author quartet with Harlequin Presents. I’ll be collaborating with three of my favourite authors: Tara Pammi, Maya Blake, and Caitlin Crews.
I don’t want to give away too much, but there’s plenty of angst, intrigue and passion in this short series along with royals, kidnappings, seductions, secret babies, and, of course, princesses who run away from forced marriages only to wind up in a heap of trouble.
My heroine, Galila, finds herself in just that situation when she allows my hero, Karim of Zyria, to compromise her reputation. He’s trying to protect his mother and country, but still winds up with a handful for a bride in a wicked sand storm.

I had so much fun working with Rachael Thomas and Jennifer Hayward on this fun trilogy about Secret Billionaires going undercover as regular guys. And now my contribution is here! Have you been following this series? Here’s the blurb:
“I wager that not one of you could go two weeks without your credit cards…”
The Secret Billionaires
Challenged to go undercover–but tempted to blow it all.
Tycoons Antonio Di Marcello, Stavros Xenakis and Alejandro Salazar cannot imagine life without their decadent wealth, incredible power and untouchable status–but neither can they resist their competitive natures!
Dared to abandon all they know, these extraordinary men leave behind their billionaire lifestyles–and take on ‘ordinary’ lives.
But disguised as a mechanic, a pool boy and a groom, they’re about to meet the real challenge…
Conquering the women they’ll meet along the way.
Book One: Di Marcello’s Secret Son by Rachael Thomas
Book Two: Xenakis’s Convenient Bride by Dani Collins

I was so thrilled to wake up to an email from my editor telling me the final book in my Sauveterre Siblings quartet had been accepted. Even better that she was so happy with it:
“I have read your revisions and they were FANTASTIC! Such an incredible conclusion to your series, and one of the most powerful endings I have read in a while. So thank you!!”
It’s been a long journey, writing these four books. I seriously can’t wait until they’re all out there in the world for you to enjoy.

One of my goals since becoming a published author has been to rewrite and publish some of the manuscripts I wrote before I sold.
Fitting that in around my other deadlines is a huge challenge, but I found time last year to self-publish this duet. It’s a small labor of love. I adore the romance between Sterling and Paige. They’re a ‘meant to be’ couple who have so many obstacles to overcome. I hope you’ll cheer them on as much as I did.
Then Paige’s brother, Lyle, re-invents himself as L.C., leaving the town where he and Paige were No Good Fogartys to find the love of his life managing a senior’s complex.
If you like multi-generational stories with flawed characters who find the ability to laugh amid heartbreak, this duet is your jam. Enjoy.
