Rhymes with Love: The Series

Counting Down to 20

So when I got to this point in my writing, I decided I wanted to write about a collection of spinsters from a small village who had no hope of ever getting married. They weren’t great beauties, they weren’t fabulously rich, or well-connected. Just ordinary girls from a village.

I could see this trio of friends so clearly: Tabitha-smart, kind and hard-working, Daphne–all full of opinions and grand aspirations, and finally, Harriet–loyal to a fault, utterly sensible and a secret romantic. Okay, maybe not so secret–but don’t tell her brothers, they would tease her to the … Read more »

Tempted by the Night

Countdown to 20

So after dishing yesterday about the covers I, u-hum, don’t like, I get to rave and rave about this one. I nearly swooned when I saw the artwork for TEMPTED BY THE NIGHT. In fact, the next thing I did was contact the artist, Jon Paul, and beg him to let me buy it for my office.

It hangs there to this day. Tempted Final Front A What I love about the full artwork that you don’t really see on the cover of the book are all the wonderful details of this night scene. The carriage, the shadowy street. … Read more »

Countdown to 20

For my third Avon#20thAvonRomance Countdown(2) Romance in this countdown, I came up with Three Fun Facts You Might Not Know About ONE NIGHT OF PASSION.

Fun Fact #1

ONE NIGHT OF PASSION is my outlandish Regency take on Cinderella, so when Avon asked me to come up with a tag line for the book, I couldn’t resist being a bit wicked, coming back with:

“Sometimes Cinderella loses more than just her shoe …”

Honestly, I never thought they would ever use it. I was just being snarky. But they did, and it is still to this day, … Read more »

Once Tempted

#20thAvonRomance Countdown(1)

Countdown to 20

I had no intention of sitting down to write a series when I started ONCE TEMPTED. Yet, as stories often do, the characters blossomed before me and it was the beginning of my love affair with the Danvers family that continues today.

ONCE TEMPTED opens with the death of Orlando Danvers, the youngest of the Danvers brothers. Never have I regretted killing off a character more than shooting Orlando through the heart. Once TemptedTruly, don’t write me, there is no precedent-setting three day Regency operation that will bring him back. And believe me, a lot of you … Read more »

#TBT: Mad About the Duke

This book, Mad About the Duke, is the story inspired my upcoming Bachelor Chronicles spin-off, Mad about the Major. Here is where the Duke of Parkerton finally meets his match.

But the wait for Parkerton’s story took some time. He first appeared at the end of This Rake of Mine, chastising his younger brother, Mad Jack Tremont, to get out of jail and go marry Miranda. I sort of fell in love Mad About the Dukewith him the moment he stepped on the page. He is so stuffy and ducal and proper. He just needed his life turned upside down.… Read more »
