Looking Back, Looking Forward

I received an early Christmas present last week when I learned my first Intrigue, STRANGERS IN THE NIGHT, has been nominated for a Romantic Times Reviewers' Choice Award for Best First Series Romance. To celebrate, today's winner will receive a copy of the book. All you have to do is comment to be entered to win. (And a big THANK YOU to everyone who's already taken the time to read it and/or my second Intrigue, BEAUTIFUL STRANGER.)

The nomination was a nice way to close what’s been an interesting year, with its share of highs and lows, triumphs and struggles. Of course, the year’s not entirely over—a good thing considering I have another deadline coming up! As exciting as it was to see my first two books published in 2008, next year promises even more excitement ahead. I’m currently scheduled to have three more books out, as Intrigue publishes the final three stories in the Stranger series.

In April, an unexpected pregnancy turns a woman into a target in A STRANGER'S BABY.

In July, a man marries a stranger to keep her safe, and they find themselves on the run with only each other to turn to in TRUSTING A STRANGER.

And finally, in October, a woman finds herself drawn to a mysterious drifter, and into a twenty-five-year-old murder mystery in STRANGER IN A SMALL TOWN.

I'll have more details to share when the release dates come closer. In the meantime, I'm hard at work finishing the books. (Hmmm...hope I'm not tempting fate and just asking to be hit by a bus before they're done by mentioning them ahead of time!). As a result, my brain is pretty fried and incapable of thinking of anything else, including a good blog topic for today, for which I apologize. In any case, thank you again to all the readers who've taken the time to read my books. I hope I've lived up to what you're looking for in an Intrigue and have the opportunity to do so again in the future. And to anyone who hasn't gotten to try one of my books and would like to, here's your chance.

Happy holidays, everybody!
