contemporary romance

I love a bargain.

Cruising for book deals? Don’t feel bad. I do that, too. Sometimes when you’re desperate for a fresh read (and a checking account infusion), you don’t want to pay retail price for a book. That’s why I’m excited Crimson Romance has started rolling out its web store. Crimson books are generally priced at $4.99, but Read more of this post »



Hijacked by the Emerald Springs Underbelly Blog

I was supposed to have a post up at the RomCom blog today, but…it got hijacked by some hipsters with an agenda. *sigh* At least they’re giving stuff away! Go enter to win a copy of Emerald Springs Legacy books Adam’s Ambition and Colleen’s Choice. You do have to sign in to comment, but, you Read more of this post »

If you’re sick of rock star romances, you’ll like this book. A very smarmy cockroach of one Read more of this post »



If you liked this, you’ll like that [probably].

All of my contemporary romances read a little bit differently depending on what kind of heroines I cast.

Now, while I think it’s a great idea for you to Read more of this post »



The geeks are back!

Saint Patty’s day is approaching, and so it’s fabulous timing that two of my favorite [fictional] Irishmen are back (at least at Amazon) and they’re cheaper than before. Each book stands alone, BUT, Grant’s story happens before Curt’s. You’ll want to read both before Seeing Red comes out in September. Reading them first will make Read more of this post »



Love is in the [Wyoming] air! (contest closed)

Tomorrow is the official release of Teaching the Cowboy – my most gigantic book to date. It’s snarky and sexy and I’ve been waiting for it to see the light of day since November 2012! If you’re a fan of dark humor, you’ll love this one. Here’s the summary: She’s a Carolina beauty queen, not Read more of this post »



The Brownest Person in the Room

When I was revising Teaching the Cowboy before submitting back in 2012, I struggled with a few scenes. I worried they’d be offensive to people who don’t get my humor or who didn’t grow up in the sort of cultural climate that I did. At its heart, Teaching the Cowboy is a fish out of Read more of this post »



Shake Well’s price has been shaken!

Shake Well is the first novel-length book in the Natural Beauty series. I was going to make this book a permanent free read in early 2014, but I wanted to go ahead and scratch something off my to-do list. (Why, yes, it does have a new cover! As does the rest of the Natural Beauty Read more of this post »
