Dear Reader,

Spring is here, and so too is the long awaited follow up to Addicted. Sinful, picks up where Addicted left off, and features that bad boy, Lord Wallingford!

Sinful actually takes place in the Spring, May to be exact. My inspiration for the locale of Wallingford's estate was Evesham, a delightful little village that I fell in love with on one of my travels to England. I visited Evesham during the spring and walked a large portion of the renowned blossom trail. It was that memory and the beauty of the locale that made me eager to add it to one of my books. You'll see that I've included a few pictures that I used for inspiration. Some of them are from the famous Stourhead gardens. I spent the day there and was truly awed by the scenery. From all directions the vista was outstanding. Sticking out most in my mind was a lovely bridge and folly, as well as an old Gothic cottage. I knew one day that I would include this cottage in a story, if I could ever find the right hero or heroine to make good use of it. Well, Wallingford was the absolute perfect hero for that cottage. Enjoy the lovely pictures!

I'm really excited about Sinful's release. This truly is a book of my heart. I think Wallingford is so darkly beautiful, passionate, tortured, and so utterly redeemable. I hope you find him that way, too! Sinful releases May 1 and will be available at books stores, on line retailers, as well as available for downloads for e-readers.

Also in the works, is the launch of my new website to help celebrate the release of Sinful. The new site will go live May 1, as well, there is bonus content from Sinful.  A never before seen, expanded epilogue. This, too, will be available to readers on May 1.  I hope you will visit to see the gorgeous new site, as well as to read the epilogue, which I think is very fitting for Jane and Lord Wallingford!

As part of the release, I'll be making some blog stops throughout the month, chatting away about Sinful and giving away signed copies. A list of dates follows.

April 26, Seductive Musings

April 26, a never before seen interview with Lord Wallingford, at Lovin Me Some Romance

As always, thank you so much for your emails, your readership, and your friendship. I hope you enjoy Wallingford as much as I enjoyed writing him! May all your days be sunny and warm, and filled with the sights and sounds of Spring!

Till next time!

On Sale May 1st


In Victorian England vice of every kind can be purchased, and Matthew, the Earl of Wallingford, makes certain he avails himself of every possible pleasure. Bored and jaded, he is as well known for his coldness as for his licentious affairs with beautiful women.

Early Reviews

"Pairing a tortured hero and a strong-minded heroine creates a dynamic conflict and off-the-charts sexual tension. Throw in lots of witty dialogue-and you've got a keeper."

"Romance at its best with an emotional intensity that leaves you breathless..."

"A darkly sensual tale of unbridled passion and forbidden love..."
