I know it's been a while since you have
heard from me, but I have been enjoying a long-overdue creative break since
February, when I finished Stephen Mowbray's story, now officially entitled An
Impossible Attraction. I have been showing my horses and going out with
friends, even shopping a little, and in general being very delinquent. I am
only just starting to feel guilty about such a prolonged break from work. You
do know that this June marks 21 years for me as a published author! My agent kindly
reminded me that very few authors remain published at such a point in time. As
tired as I am of promotion, marketing and publishing, I love writing, and
intend to do so till I die.
I am about to take off to show in
Sacramento, where my two best friends of 25 years live, and then I am off to
another show at Del Mar, which is right on the ocean! Then my son and I are off
to NYC, to visit friends and family. And I will be hard at work in July on Dark
Resurrection, which continues the masters of Time with the story of a man lost
in time, whom the gods will not let die, no matter how much he wants to! Alex
spends centuries enslaved as a gladiator before he finally takes his vows, and
when he is reunited with his old flame, Jan Bentley, she cannot recognize
him..... I think the Masters fans will love this one, but keep in mind that Dark
Lover goes on sale in late July. It is Ian and Sam's story, and my best Masters
of Time to date-and one of my best novels, ever.
For all of you de Warenne fans, Stephen's
story will be out next March. In An
Impossible Attraction, Stephen has become the most powerful peer in the
realm-he is the eighth duke of Clarewood-notorious for his heartlessness, and
renowned for his philanthropy. The fact that he is biologically a de Warenne
remains a family secret. He has yet to truly get over his past, and he lives
alone in "splendid isolation"-or so his best friend and cousin, Alexi accuses.
But his soul mate is as impoverished and ruined as he is rich and powerful, and
she has chosen the path of self-sacrifice. Alexandra Bolton, now a spinster of
twenty-six, has never regretted the choice she made nine years earlier at her
mother's deathbed, to give up true love and marriage so she could care for her
sisters and father. Until Stephen crosses her path and awakens old hopes and
wild dreams-and an impossible attraction.....
Attached are some photos from our February
show-in the group shot, that is my filly "Cookie" who is reserve champion, and
I am the barn rat holding the German Shepherd! The other shot is me and Sean-we
were 3rd (again).
All the best,
