Reading Roundup

I’ve been reading like a starving woman lately. Just hungry for good stories. So I thought I would share with you some of the good ones I’ve stumbled across lately.

Guilty Pleasure
The Jane Austen Project by Kathleen A. Flynn

The Jane Austen Project is, on the outside, a truly outrageous notion. Scientists from the future travel back to Regency England to find Jane Austen’s letters and an unpublished novel before they are lost forever. And as silly and contrived at that might seem, it is anything but. In the process we meet Henry Austen, Jane’s brother, and slowly are … Read more »

Brazen Angel is Free

As of this post, you will find the ebook of Brazen Angel free. Everywhere. Took some doing, but given that this is Brazen Angel’s 20th anniversary, I thought it would be fun to give back some love.

After all this book, and all of you, started all of this.

The cool part of Brazen Angel has as much to do about the back story of how it was published, as it does the adventures of Sophia and Giles. Brazen AngelBut seriously, have your read, My Favorite Hero? If not, go ahead and click on it. Read the story and then … Read more »

Who Said It Answered

So who said the following?

“A few minutes ago you couldn’t wait to leave and now you want to stay?”
“That was before I killed a man,” she offered, coming up with the only excuse she could other than the truth.
“You didn’t kill anyone. You only winged him.”
“Are you sure?”
“Yes.”
She glanced back up the stairs, where even now a tide of servants was rushing to the aid of their master. “I think his injury will be grave, for I’ve never missed before.”

That just happens to be Olivia SuttonOnce Tempted and Robert Danvers in Once Tempted.… Read more »

The Tale of 3 Covers

Or maybe I should make that “Two Wrongs Make a Third Cover.” Or “What happens when you write the stories of identical twins and the trials of making sure both covers have the same model.”

Or rather, “How SIX IMPOSSIBLE THINGS got its cover because a certain someone (not pointing fingers here) decided she no longer wanted to be a romance cover model and made a mess of everything.”

Okay, let’s start with the problem–down below is the stepback for the first book, THE VISCOUNT WHO LIVED DOWN THE LANE, featuring Louisa Tempest, of the infamous Tempest twins. I … Read more »

Tuesday Teaser: The Knave of Hearts

Continuing with my Knavish theme this month, and since THE KNAVE OF HEARTS will only be on sale for a very short time longer, I thought I would give another look inside at the very beginning of Tuck and Lavinia’s romance. Poor Lavinia! The thing about a knave is that he never has your best interests at heart—no matter how sincere he seems.

“Miss Tempest, you must have faith,” he told her, getting to his feet. “You must trust me—”

“Trust you?” Her astonishment all but filled the room.

Well, she might have a point in that regard . .
