US Release for One Night, Two Consequences November 2015


One Night, Two Consequences will be released in the US on November 1st and I’m super excited.

Beautiful free-spirited Remy Draycott doesn’t believe in happy-ever-afters. A former child prodigy, she’s finally shaken free of the world’s expectations and is determined to live for the moment?including one scorching, unforgettable night with handsome stranger Bo Tessier!

Billionaire wine magnate Bo never expects to see Remy again?their mind-blowing night together felt like playing with fire, except he wanted to get burned! But six weeks later Remy returns. She’s pregnant?with twins! And this time he can’t let her go so easily…

About business, reviews and taking s***t personally….

It’s been a tough week, not only for me but for some of my friends. My husband has been really sick, we’re trying to make a bunch of decisions while neither of us are feeling well, physically or emotionally, and we’re tired.It’s been tough and then this morning I got to my desk and I saw a review someone wrote regarding one of my books…

Ouch. It wasn’t pretty.

Being in business, specifically being in business lobbying, taught me a very valuable lesson that I’ve taken through to my writing career.

Don’t take “stuff” personally.

Men are so much better than this than woman are, we take everything to heart…frequently when its really not necessary. It’s hard not to do, especially when you feel like you are fighting an attack from all corners. Men are able to see differentiate the issues and say this is about the issue not about me and it’s a trait that I think woman can learn from men.

I’ve learned that a criticism from my editor or agent or a bad review is not about me, about who I am, it’s about my work. Two totally separate issues. Yes I put myself into my work but its not the sum total of who I am. Any issue to do with my work is not all about me.

And that’s hard to remember when I am feeling tired or my kids are sick or I’m fighting with my husband. It’s hard not to feel personally slapped when you are taking strain in other areas of your life.  When I am feeling fragile it’s really important for me to look at the issues clearly and separate them, to remind myself that the person criticizing my book does not know me and is judging what she is reading, not judging me. And there might be a million reasons why she didn’t like my book; it might have pushed a button for her, she might just think it’s a crap book. That’s okay. I made the choice to put the book out there in the world, I have to roll with the punches. In this case, it’s just business.

And her criticizing my book is no more a reflection on her as it is a reflection on me.

It’s just about the book. One book of sixteen. It’s just business.

It’s just about the book. It’s just business. Every time I say that the sting lessens. And I feel a little more free.






Taking the Boss to Bed- December release


One kiss from the boss is all it takes!
When producer Ryan Jackson kisses a beautiful stranger to save her from a lecherous investor, he doesn’t know she’s his newest employee…or that she’s also his best friend’s little sister all grown up. Now the only way to save his business deal is a scorching, hands-on, make-believe affair with the one woman who is absolutely off-limits. So why is he thinking more about seducing Jaci Brookes-Lyon than toeing the corporate line? When sexual ruse becomes reality, can faking it save his business and lead to love?

My sister is a witch…do I care?

My younger sister Jen is a white witch.

When I heard this, my first thought was that I’m really glad that she isn’t a black witch, I don’t think the the eye-of-a-newt no teeth Macbeth witch is a good look for her.


She is a practicing Pagan and I, admittedly, don’t know a lot about the religion except that, at its heart, it has a reverence for everything in nature. She doesn’t use a broomstick as a mode of transport (sadly, in my humble opinion, that would be pretty cool), bite the heads off bats or worship Satan.

Jen loves the natural world and everything in it and she is, fundamentally, a nurturer. She’ll give the same care to a broken baby tree as she gives to the elderly folk she cares for. She hugs trees, talks to plants, stares at that sky and finds magic in unexpected places.

And she loves…generously, uninhibitedly, wildly….
I kind of think any other love based God would be okay with that. And really, what can be so wrong with a religion that has the phrase “First, do no harm” as a cornerstone of its faith?

I have this idea that if you are looking for God, he will find you.

My sister is a smart, capable, thinking adult and she has chosen this form of worship. Paganism is her path, her choice and I will fight for her right—vociferously and loudly—as strongly as I will fight for your right to worship Christ, or Muhammed, or Buddha or anyone other deity your energy resonates with. I’m in no position to judge her, or you, or anyone else. Her path is her path, mine is different. And that’s okay.

So okay.
Her choices do not affect me, my life or my spiritual path. There’s an old Polish saying that sums my thoughts on peoples choice of religion, including my sisters, perfectly:
Not my circus, not my monkeys…
I love my sister, I fully, absolutely and unequivocally support and respect her choices. I only have one piece of advice for her….

Don’t drink and fly, my darling. ;-)

Peace. Tolerance. Love

I’ve deliberately not allowed comments on this post because I don’t want my blog to become a platform for anyone to promote his or her religious beliefs. Instead of commenting, I challenge you to donate $5 (or less or more) to your church, a charity, a cause you believe in the name of your God; whoever or whatever that may be. Let’s spread a little love.

New releases…

I know that I have neglected this blog terribly, life and writing and life and kids and life have got in the way. I also have quite a bit of work to do (for which I’m grateful for, I’d rather have too much work than none at all) but I am going to do my best to get organized again. I really am.

So, looking ahead in terms of books, I have a book coming out in September for the Tule Publishing group and it’s called Claimed By The Warrior. Here’s the blurb:

Bad boy Jed Hamilton is ex-special Forces and a current undercover “recovery agent” working for Pytheon, a powerful group that liberates stolen items—people, secrets, art—and returns them to their rightful owners. He’s mentally and physically tough, a loner and, above all, violently allergic to commitment, permanence, and anything wedding related.

So when he hears, in the very sexy McKenna Dixon’s bridal salon, that his much younger sister is getting married and she wants him to be her “man of honor” Jed wishes he was anywhere but in Cape Town, especially around the woman who makes him consider perilous phrases like “what if” and “maybe”…

McKenna Dixon loves bad boys, but her past experience with the species has led to nothing but pain and heartbreak. Jed Hamilton is exactly the type of man she should avoid, but when a nasty incident threatens her and her daughter Daisy, Jed immediately appoints himself as their protector, even though it’s not a part of his job description.

McKenna is determined not to allow another bad boy to flip her life inside out, and Jed is determined to retain his bachelor status and to keep travelling and working. But, as they both discover, love does its best work when you are busy making other plans…
