Ho! Ho! Ho!

Good morning everyone!

You'll have to pardon my exuberence in this post. After a lot of hard work and extensive research, quite literally fifteen minutes ago, I finished a book. I'm afraid the joy of being finished is seeping into everything.

I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July! If you're signed up for my newsletter, you know this year has been full of fireworks for me. New contracts, edits... edits... edits... Oh! And a new release date too. Mustn't forget those important things.

One of the things I'm doing to celebrate not only our Christmas In July event, but also some of my successes, is running a coinciding contest that I hope you'll join in on.

I'm giving away a $25.00 Borders gift card, and your choice of an autographed copy of one of my Christmas novels (See below).

What do you need to do to play along? Well, toodle on over to my Contest Page. All the details are there. It's pretty easy and I'm happy to say I have quite a few entries already. I'll be drawing a name at the end of the month.

Meanwhile, I'll highlight my Christmas romances here:


NEW RELEASE -- Coming November 24, 2010


A Christmas To Believe In

Book 3 in the Three Kings trilogy


When a man's dreams are in ruin,
All he needs is someone to believe...




Struggling Thoroughbred breeder, Clint King, hasn't been home for Christmas in five years. This year, his prize mare's due to foal any day, and in the wake of his father's death, Clint can't stand the idea of returning. Except, Alex is getting married on Christmas Eve, and their mother's put her foot down. With his mare in tow, Clint prepares to meet a sister he's never known, and Alex's unexpected triplets. The one salvation he looks forward to is childhood companion, tomboy Jesse Saurs. Yet when he reunites with Jesse, he uncomfortably discovers she's become all woman.

Jesse has everything she needs -- financial security, a home, and a foster child who's about to become her son. With Ethan's final hearing scheduled just before Christmas, her dreams will come true. When she learns Clint and his brothers are returning, she anticipates a holiday reunion that's sure to entertain Ethan. But on the night of Clint's return, the "brother" she expected leaves her trembling after a hug. Even worse, Ethan makes it clear Clint's not welcome.


Will Christmas destroy hopes and dreams, or will it become the gift they've all been longing for?



All I Want For Christmas... Is Big Blue Eyes



Some dreams were never meant to be...


Renowned architect, Josh McDaniels, spent ten years avoiding his hometown and the unforgettable memories of his youth. But when a former classmate phones him before Christmas with a proposal he can’t refuse, he finds himself back in small-town, Lexington, Missouri, surrounded by holiday festivities and engulfed in memories of a blue-eyed girl.

Amanda Masterson knows three things about Josh. She loves him, he loves her, and he’ll walk out when those feelings terrify him, as he always does. Ten years ago, he abandoned their dreams. Eight years ago, he returned to break her heart again. Now, he’s back once more, and this time, he’s jeopardizing not only her heart but her daughter’s as well.

Can the spirit of Christmas overcome a past riddled with mistakes? Or will fears and doubts destroy the greatest gift of all?


Enjoy folks! And I sincerely hope to see your name in my inbox!
