2014: Year of the Historical

Private Research is now out into the world. In fact, the print version releases tomorrow. It’s my first erotic contemporary and ties in to the world first set up in On These Silken Sheets.

In December, I will be releasing a short story digitally, Caroline and the Duke, my first foray back into Regency since April 2012 and it starts a whole year of nonstop Regency-set stories.

First of all, in May 2014, back to back Avon Impulse will be releasing Woo’d in Haste and Wed at Leisure. Both explore my own twist on Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew, with Woo’d in Haste being Bianca’s book and Wed at Leisure being Kate’s. You can actually pre-order these now!

And then, the newest of news: I just signed a contract that means two full length Regency-set novels will be coming soon! While I can’t say too much more yet, the first of these stories is one of those “books of the heart.” I am so happy to see it find a home.

There might be more news as well soon. To keep up with my releases, please join my mailing list. I only send out newsletters when there is a new release coming, or when I have special giveaways for my readers. Click here to sign up.
