Tea with Nora Roberts...and new release day!

So yesterday I had tea with Nora Roberts in the Lodge at Ashford Castle...which was fabulous.


And today, it's release day for Racing the Hunter's Moon - which is also fabulous. I'm liking this week already! 


Here's a little about the story:
Pretending to be a couple may drive them crazy.
Feisty mechanic Betty Smith should have only one thing on her mind—catching the conman who swindled her mother. Not the sexy stranger who kissed her then completely disappeared.
Undercover FBI agent Joe Carter needs to focus on the bad guy who got away, not the gorgeous headstrong brunette who watches too many cop shows and keeps interfering in his case. Unfortunately, catching their prey before he skips town means working together.
But while entering the vintage car rally as a couple seemed like a good idea at the time, faking feelings for each other turns out to be the easiest part. Neither one can allow anything to get in their way, but staying away from each other is impossible. They both know, though, once their plan is complete, so is their time together.

Here are the links:

And Racing the Hunter's Moon is also available as a paperback at all online paperback retailers.

Love On The Vine - again

I have the rights back on a novella previously with The Wild Rose Press, and have today published it again on Amazon and it is trickling through to iTunes, Kobo, B&N etc as I write. Currently 99c on Amazon, but I expect it to go free on Amazon soon, as it will be free for a while on the other sites.

The book has been altered slightly and re-edited - I considered adding in some steamier sex to bring it from a sweet rating to a spicy rating, but in the end, decided to leave it as a sweet as my current wip is definitely on the hotter side!

Here's the cover, isn't it gorgeous?


p.s. I hope to have a release date soon for the last book in the Under the Hood series, coming this summer!

Something from William Shakespeare for the Summer Solstice

In celebration of the Summer Solstice, I give you a snippet from A Midsummer Night's Dream... which shows that determined women and men playing hard to get in romances is nothing new....




DEMETRIUS


Do I entice you? do I speak you fair?


Or, rather, do I not in plainest truth


Tell you, I do not, nor I cannot love you?




HELENA


And even for that do I love you the more.


I am your spaniel; and, Demetrius,


The more you beat me, I will fawn on you:


Use me but as your spaniel, spurn me, strike me,


Neglect me, lose me; only give me leave,


Unworthy as I am, to follow you.


What worser place can I beg in your love,--


And yet a place of high respect with me,--


Than to be used as you use your dog?



DEMETRIUS


Tempt not too much the hatred of my spirit;


For I am sick when I do look on thee.


 
HELENA


And I am sick when I look not on you.




 Conflict and character set up well from the start...Enjoy the start of summer everyone!

REVIEW COPIES - LOVE FOR BEGINNERS!

I have some exciting news today! My next book, a novella length story - the second in the Under the Hood Series called Love for Beginners, is going to be released from Entangled Publishing on May 27th and  they’re offering free review copies to the first 50 people who sign up!

You don't have to be a blogger to receive the book; however, they'd like the review to be posted within 1 Week of Release on Goodreads, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble.

The Under the Hood Series is about a group of three women who run a garage in Virginia. Book 1, Under the Hood, is Alice's story, and Book 2, Love for Beginners is Mel's. There is a Book 3 scheduled for release later this year, which concludes the series, and is Betty's story.

The cover is under wraps for the moment, but here's the blurb:

She needs a lesson in love, and he’s the perfect teacher.
Mechanic Melody Swan is looking for a man who can share her hopes and dreams, but she swore she would never lose herself to passion. When sexy Heath Starr agrees to temporarily sub in the Under the Hood garage for his sister, Mel sees the perfect opportunity to enjoy being with a man without becoming attached.
Heath came to Meadowsweet to photograph nature, not find a hookup, especially since his last relationship ended in disaster. He vowed he’d never break another woman’s heart, and in turn, protect his own. Still, when Mel offers to serve as his outdoor guide, he can’t refuse.
Mel may say she’s only looking for right now, but her body is speaking a whole different language. And Heath’s viewfinder is drawn to her time and again. When the two find themselves isolated in a rustic cabin, they could both break their promises if they aren’t careful…
