Thanks for having me today! It’s always a treat to talk about books and reading. I was a bookworm from an early age. In third grade I decided to read the entire fiction section at my elementary school library. (Hey, at least I had goals!) I’m sad to say I got bogged down at the [...]

Read an Excerpt from Nobody’s Princess Thank God, the shoot was over. Piers had grown steadily more toxic as the afternoon progressed. A last-minute idea change from the client had turned him feral.

When I run out of current romances to read, I sometimes try books from the seventies when bodice rippers burst onto the scene. One book that stayed with me is Kathleen E. Woodiwiss’s Shanna. Why? In the other erotic historicals, the hero broods, snarls, and is generally unpleasant. Try that with a modern woman and [...]
TWO TO WRANGLE EXCERPT “I’m not going to be a silent partner, Ty.” “Didn’t expect you to be.” “If you want me you’re going to have to give me equal say.” “How can I do that when I’m talking bulls and you’re going off about Flamenco dancers?” “You just illustrated my entire point!” she said. [...]

I don’t know how many of you reading this are football fans but I certainly lead the pack. Several years ago, Joe Theismann who at that time was quarterback for the NFL Washington Redskin, suffered a devastating injury during a game. It finished his career, although he went on to a new career in broadcasting. [...]
One of the reasons I write historical romances is because I love unearthing unusual or odd tidbits about the eras and people I write about. The Scottish have always fascinated me, and in addition to being a proud, independent people, they are quite superstitious too. Though superstitions and the rituals associated with them tend to [...]
Miss Townsend, welcome. Thank you for taking the time to speak with us. So lovely to meet you as well. I’m delighted to be here. Please call me Juliet. Perhaps you can tell us more about yourself? I am the youngest of the Townsend sisters. My elder sister, Anne has been married two years to [...]
This is a busy week for me. A new book release and Thanksgiving within two days of one another. I have so much for being thankful for this year. At long last, my pirate book Within A Captain’s Hold has set sail! This is a huge moment for me. I feel like I need to [...]
