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.

Stalkers on the Road to Love

Today I’m blogging over at Desert Island Keepers. Come see why we’re all stalkers on the road to love! ;-) You can also see what movie I recommend all historical romance readers watch.

In other news, at the end of this month I will be attending the national conference of the Romance Writer’s of America. If you live anywhere near Orlando, Florida and you want a signed copy of On These Silken Sheets, come to the literacy signing on Wednesday, July 28th. There will be hundreds of romance authors signing and proceeds go to charity. For more information, click here.

Additionally, earlier that day, I will be presenting a workshop at the Beaumonde Conference. The Beaumonde is a specialty chapter of RWA, focusing on the Regency period. For more information on this conference, please visit here.

9 Rules to Break when Romancing a Rake

Sarah Maclean’s hilarious and sexy new book, 9 Rules to Break when Romancing a Rake, is out, in stores, in digital stores, everywhere! I’ve read it and I love it. Ok, that’s not enough to say–it made me laugh out loud almost every other page!

To help her celebrate, I’ve posted *my* 9 rules for conducting an affair during the Season. Very good advice for all of us who live half in the Regency ;-). One commenter wins a copy of On These Silken Sheets, so please come by and join us at macleanspace.com!
