I've always been attracted by the image of the heroic highwayman, even though
the myth puts a golden gloss on reality. So I squeezed a highwayman into the
plot of A PERILOUS
PASSION—well, two, actually, although neither steals anything more valuable
than a pocketful of eggs.
My imagination was fuelled by the stories of Read More...
My characters are always sharing food with one another. Food and love are tied
up in my brain in ways they probably shouldn't be, but that knot is never going
to get untangled, so my characters love one another and love their food.
Sometimes they show they care by making sure their love interest has enough to
eat; sometimes they give gifts of pastry and pie. In Read More...

For me, winter—and the holidays in particular—is the coziest time of year.
During these cold months, I return to comfort reads—the books that no matter
what else is going on in my life—or the wider world—give me escape, hope,
inspiration, and encouragement.
So, as the winter nights draw in, and I curl up by the fire with a mug of hot
chocolate, my dog snuggled at my side, and fuzzy Read More...
Do you love subscription boxes? I do. I think it stems in part from the joy and
excitement of receiving mail when I was growing up. You know how it is—when
you're a child, all mail is addressed to your parents. And then the day comes
when you—yes, you—get a card addressed to you. Or maybe it's a magazine or a
letter. Whatever it was, it was good. You weren Read More...
Excerpt of JACE'S JEWEL
As soon as Jace left, Emily couldn't get the idea out of her mind to visit the
site of the two men's drowning. She often went out in the field for things
related to work. But this time it was personal. She considered asking for a day
or two off work, but they were swamped. And seriously so. Now was not a good
time Read More...
Candy was starting to figure out Jared was a whole lot of masculine bluster.
Beneath the cool stare and the cutting words he sometimes tossed off, he had
Twenty minutes later when she walked into his condo, she realized those feelings
included being really doggone romantic.
He had recreated her idea of a perfect evening, right down to his own addition
of a fire popping Read More...
More and more, stories centering on MOGAI characters have been appearing in
young adult fiction, something I am exceedingly happy about. Solid, respectful,
and accurate MOGAI—which stands for Marginalized
Alignments, and Intersex—representation is
incredibly important, and here are five reasons why.
Fiction should be a reflection of the world both as Read More...
"Now that you know everything there is to know about me," she said, licking
cheesecake off her fork with a little show of tongue simply because she liked
Max watching her do it, "let's talk about you."
His smile wilted a little, much to her disappointment. "My life isn't nearly as
interesting as yours. Definitely nothing worth talking about."
"That's silly," she scolded. "I bet you have Read More...
As a fan of romance novels, and somebody who loves making lists, I'm
drawn to the many "Best of…" book lists that come out as the year draws to a
close. I'd thought about doing one that encompasses the entire year, but
was struck by how many fabulous books have been published just this fall
With each new book I read, the list of books that have blown my Read More...
Winter is peeking around the corner in most parts of the
nation but here in
sunny Florida, fall is just another growing season. We've already produced quite
a few lemons from our tree and I'm ready to start digging in the dirt again to
see if we can grow more tomatoes and peppers for my husband's yummy salsa. Cozy
mysteries about organic planting and farms always appeal to Read More...
Georgian England was a place and time of excitement and wonder. Lots of changes
going. Lots of money flowing around England. Lots of crime and inventions. But,
you know what interests me? The little things about daily life during the period
of the four King Georges—not *gasp* the fashions. I know. That's sacrilege for a
historical romance reader since most people want the gorgeous gowns. I like
clothes, but the day to day Read More...
