Erin Go Bragh to my Irish friends. Happy March to everyone. Is
it roaring in like a lion, or creeping in like a lamb where you
are? Looks like it’s going to be roaring in here where I
live—because I just can’t get enough of this bitter cold and
snow—not! Hopefully, the old wives’ tale will hold true to form,
and by month’s end, spring and gentler weather will be here to
February was a busy month for me! I celebrated another birthday.
Got some lovely flowers for Valentine’s Day. Finished up a play
I directed for my local community theater (TWELVE ANGRY MEN)—and
the production was really special, if I do say so myself. Plus,
I finished up my book for November. CROSSFIRE CHRISTMAS is the
new title for the book that started off as Kidnapped By A Cop.
This one is a holiday thriller with a wounded hero (literally
and emotionally) and a spunky heroine who teaches him about love
and trust. So mark your calendars for CROSSFIRE CHRISTMAS!
In other cool news—I was asked to write a free online read
novella that will run throughout the month of June at the
www.Harlequin.com website. It doesn’t have a title yet, but it’s
going to be a prequel to my August release, KCPD PROTECTOR. You
won’t have to read the prequel to know what’s going on in KCPD
PROTECTOR, but it’s a free read! So I hope you’ll indulge in
some extra romantic suspense starting June 1st.
Also, on the independent front…for you e-readers out there, I’ll
be releasing a boxed set of three of my big romantic suspense
books under the title, MAKE MINE A MARINE next month. Can you
guess what all the heroes used to do for a living? As my dad
said, “Once a Marine, always a Marine.” Yes, these are
previously published titles—but they’ve been updated and
re-edited, and the set will be available at a bargain price!
Many of you have let me know that you’d like to see some bigger
books from me. So here’s a taste. I hope you’ll love them!
This month I’m continuing to revisit some of my favorite stories
and share them with readers. Be sure to check out my
Contests & Fun Page
to read an excerpt from PROTECTING PLAIN JANE. I’ve always had a
thing for those big bruiser heroes with a heart of gold beneath
that gruff & tough exterior. I hope you’ll enjoy this excerpt,
too. And enter for a chance to win one of my backlist titles!
