My second book, The Devil May Care, won the 2012 Golden Heart for Historical Romance!

During my "year of entering contests" (besides the GH), it won the 2010 Beau Monde Royal Ascot in the Hot Regency category as well as the Historical category of the 2009 Golden Pen.
In 2010, it was also a finalist in:
The Emily
Great Expectations
Fab Five
Reveal Your Inner Vixen (came in second place behind A Most Improper Gentleman!).
My first book, A MOST IMPROPER GENTLEMAN won the 2010 Golden Heart for Regency Historical. 
In 2010, it also won:
The Beau Monde Royal Ascot for Regency Historical
The Molly (Historical)
Heart of the Rockies (Historical)
Reveal Your Inner Vixen
It was a finalist in every contest I entered it in, including The Golden Palm, and it was also nominated in the Molly's Unsinkable Heroine Category.  

Since I was a Golden Heart finalist for A Most Improper Gentleman (then called Shameless) in 2009 as well, I'm lucky enough to count myself a member of three uber-talented Golden Heart classes: the Firebirds, the Unsinkables and the extraordinary Ruby Slippered Sisters.
I'll blog here when I can, but you'll hear much more from me at the 2009 finalists' website, rubyslipperedsisterhood.com

So What Have I Been Up To?

Well, I've been busy helping my friend Lara Archer, with her soon-to-debut historical erotic romance series, The Rites of May.

Book 1, BARED TO THE VISCOUNT comes out June 23, 2015!!

webassets/viscountforweb.jpgPoor, plain spinster Mary Wilkins has no business falling in love with Viscount Parkhurst. They may have been best friends in childhood, but he’s the wealthy, powerful lord of the manor now, and everybody knows he’s bound to marry a beautiful local heiress. Mary tries to resign herself to a life of hopeless yearning, but when she and the viscount find themselves entangled in a stand of wild blackberry vines, unexpected passions flare.


The viscount can’t seem to keep his hands off her. But is he planning to make her his wife—or only his secret mistress?
