Sexy romance that’s passionate, heartwarming, and fun!

April 1, 2014

It’s spring! This is my favorite season—because of all the lovely buds and spring flowers, the warmer temperatures, the longer days, and especially because winter is a long, long way off.

As well as doing edits on the July Caribou Crossing e-novella Stand by Your Man, I discussed the next book with my editor and dove into writing it. We’re still hunting for the right title, so if you have any ideas for romantic sounding country music titles, please let me know! They can be classics or more recent ones. But the title has to be one that hasn’t already been used for a current romance novel. I keep coming up with brilliant ideas then finding that other authors have already used them.

Now, turning to my other series, my publisher notified me that the third Dirty Girls Book Club book, Bound to Be Dirty (the one that came out this February), will be published in Italy. Sperling & Kupfer, who published Italian versions of the first two books in the series, have purchased the subrights.

I love subrights sales. They’re like free money for a book I already wrote!

I’m continuing with my plan of publishing mini volumes of sweet short romances each month. Sweet Indulgences 3 is now available, and volume 4 is scheduled for early April. These are available only in Kindle and epub format (from Kobo). By the way, the covers are all made from my own photographs.

I also received some exciting news. I’ve been selected to be a workshop presenter at the Surrey International Writers Conference in October 2014. When I first started writing, I attended that conference for something like four years in a row, sopping up information. It’s pretty flattering – and a wee bit intimidating – to think that I’ll now be one of the teachers.

Thank you to everyone who entered my March opinion poll contest. I asked, “What’s your favorite sound?” and received wonderful answers that made me smile. Congratulations to winner Sue Anne E from WA, who will receive an autographed copy of her choice of my books, plus a set of blank note cards made from my photos. The April contest is now up and running. I’m asking for your thoughts on friendship.

Bound to be Dirty book

Bound to be Dirty

Title 3 in the Dirty Girls Book Club series.

When Lily Nyland’s book club chooses an erotica novel featuring BDSM, the family practice doctor finds the subject problematic. A strong feminist, she believes in independence and equality between sex partners – and that’s exactly what she has with her helicopter bush pilot husband Dax Xavier. What they don’t have is time together, true intimacy, communication, and a deep level of trust. In fact, their marriage is in serious trouble. When Dax, home for Christmas, starts spicing up their sex life with naughty tricks he’s borrowed from her book, she’s shocked to find herself turned on. Can passion and kinky sex trigger the kind of intimacy and communication that will help Lily and Dax determine whether they still love each other and whether their marriage is worth fighting for?

Sweet Indulgences: heartwarming short romances

These sweet short stories are designed for the busy woman who deserves a few minutes of self-indulgence – on the bus or train to work, during coffee or lunch break, while waiting to pick the kids up, sitting in the doctor or dentist’s waiting room, sinking into a bubble bath before bed, or . . . well, I’m sure you get the picture.

Now Evan’s back, reluctantly, and both he and Jess are hiding huge trust-destroying secrets. The attraction between them is more powerful than ever, but when the truth comes out, can country girl and city boy risk a second chance at love?
