    I've worked in publishing for twenty years and I sincerely love books and authors. I started this journey with my own books planning to write just one, and then well --- all I can say is the stories kept coming. My original series The Publicist, follows Kate, Mac, Nick, Vivienne and a host of other awesome characters as they make their lives in New York, amidst the chaos that publishing often brings with it. There are six books in that series now and if you're already a fan, I think you...

New Release - UNCONDITIONAL SURRENDER (Book 2 of Hearts Touched by Fire series)

Confederate Major Charles Silvers has had enough war. After two years of fighting, his view of a glorious Southern victory over the North has lost its luster and been replaced by a burning desire to return home to Virginia and life as it used to be, before the war. When he meets Sarah Lawrence during the siege on Vicksburg, Mississippi, he is convinced the blond-haired beauty could fill the void in his life---but what he does not know is that this Southern belle isn't what she appears to be...

Tortured by memories of the night in 1860 when masked bushwackers torched her Mississippi home and killed her father, Sarah escaped the South. Now, however, she's back and seeking revenge. As one of the best spies in the Union Army, she's in a unique position to get her wish. For her, a Confederate Major, even a devastatingly handsome one, is just the tool to obtain the information the Union needs---even at the cost of her heart.

Finally ONCE A REBEL has arrived! The hero is the enigmatic Gordon, who made brief appearances in three previous books. Edgy and dangerous, he was a mystery. Now we learn what made Gordon the way he is--and we meet Callie, the childhood friend who saved his sanity, and grew to be the one woman in the world who can touch his damaged heart.

Though ONCE A REBEL begins and ends in England, much of the story takes place in Maryland during the War of 1812. Gordon has been sent to the fledgling country to rescue a widow--and instead he discovers his past, and his future.

Reviews have been lovely: Publishers Weekly says "A page-turner tale." From Kirkus Reviews, "Though suspense and adventure drive this story forward, the love at its center sets it apart." And from Bookpage: "Filled with action and adventure and spiced with an intriguing glimpse of American history, ONCE A REBEL is not to be missed!"

I love Gordon and Callie and how against the odds, they find their way back to each and create a great and lasting love. For more information and an excerpt: http://maryjoputney.com/books/once-a-rebel/

BLOOD BETWEEN LOVERS is the second installment of the Eternal Eros Trilogy. A vampire. Alone. Struggles to validate his existence. But only the love of a woman is worth the price of immortality.

NYT and USA Today bestselling author, Susan Sizemore said, "For a genuinely fresh and fantastic new take on vampire romance, Raz Steel is your go-to-guy and the one to watch."

Patricia Yager Delagrange

MADDY'S PHOENIX was published on August 8 and I am so excited to share with you one of my favorite reviews by John Charles. He reviews romance for Booklist and Reader to Reader, both very respected and long-standing sites.

"Readers will need to have a box of Kleenex or a stack of hankies handy before beginning Maddy's Phoenix since the author successfully pulls out all the literary stops when it comes to crafting an emotionally compelling tale about love, family, and second chances that is guaranteed to tug at the heart. In addition to a potently poignant plot, the novel's realistically appealing protagonists and the powerful message of hope and affection that underpins the story will definitely resonate with readers, who value contemporary romances that manage to explore some of life's difficult topics while still delivering the much needed and much appreciated happily ever after we all crave."

MADDY'S PHOENIX is available in both print and ebook now at www.patriciayagerdelagrange.com.
