What's Up Wednesday
First, I’m thrilled to report that A Duke for All Seasons has hit the top 10 on the Historical Romance Kindle list. Thank you to everyone who “liked” it, tweeted it or generally shared Sebastian and Arabella’s story with your reading friends. I also appreciate those of you who took time to post a review of the novella. Word of mouth is still the best push a book can have and a review on Amazon or B & N often carries as much weight as a recommendation from a friend.
My Lady Below Stairs is also moving steadily up the Kindle list. I love this novella, mostly because my hero and heroine aren’t the usual suspects. Most of the time, Regency novels are peopled with lords and ladies, but I’ve always wondered about the lives of those who toiled for their bread instead of being born to the Upper Crust. I had to write a story where the heroine is a scullery maid and the hero a brawny head groom.
In other writing news, I just finished my final pass through the galley for Touch of a Rogue (Feb 28, 2012) Here’s the blurb for this second book in my Touch of Seduction series:
He can keep her safe. . .or be her very ruin. . .
Jacob Preston has three requirements for a woman desiring access to his bed: She must be enthusiastic in affairs of passion, jaded in matters of the heart, and–to ensure the first two qualifications–she must be married.
Lady Julianne Cambourne has all the makings of a passionate lover, and she certainly shows no signs of sentimentality. . .but her unmarried status should render her firmly off limits to Jacob.
Instead, it proves only a temptation. One that grows stronger when she comes to him in desperation, looking for the kind of answers only he can give. For beyond his rakish reputation, Jacob is known for the mysterious–even otherworldly–power of detection he commands through his sense of touch. And Julianne, surrounded by long-hidden secrets that threaten to ensnare her in a deadly trap, will do whatever it takes to recruit his skills. . . using every form of persuasion at her disposal. . .
Now I’m working on revisions for Lord of Fire and Ice (Summer 2012), my second collaborative novel with New York Times bestseller Connie Mason. If you haven’t seen the cover for this book yet, here it is.. (Oh, my, is that hero ever yummy! ) Now you see why I welcome revisions. Connie and I need to make sure our story lives up to this incredible cover art!
And lastly, I’m also writing furiously on my new WIP. Can’t give you many details on that yet, but I am pleased to confirm that there will be plenty more stories from me in the foreseeable future.
So that’s what’s up with me. What’s up with your Wednesday?
