Dear Reader Friends,

Like many of you, I’ve filled this past year with family and kids—in my case, horses! My former mare Riva has a gorgeous yearling daughter named Dreamer and is expecting again next spring. And my champion gelding EZ (aka Eleventh Hour) has starred on the Utah hunter show circuit all year, to my proud delight.

Besides riding and jumping, another enormous pleasure of mine is vividly bringing great romance characters to life for my readers. My latest endeavor is Legendary Lovers Book 4, THE ART OF TAMING A RAKE, out January 26th.

I’ve always loved forced-marriage themes because of the ready-made sexual tension. Well, sparks abound in this sexy twist on “Taming of the Shrew,” where Vanessa starts by threatening to shoot seductive rakehell Quinn Wilde and winds up marrying him instead! On his part, Quinn must woo his spirited but love-shy bride while unmasking a mysterious assailant.

Check out the back blurb and read Chapter One on my website.

So far, readers on Goodreads are calling THE ART OF TAMING A RAKE “great”, “outstanding”, and “the best book so far!” Here’s a link to the book on Goodreads. And, if you’d like to write a review on Goodreads or Amazon once you’ve had a chance to read the book, I would greatly appreciate it!

I confess Quinn and Vanessa turned out to be among my favorite characters that I’ve ever written, and I hope you feel the same way. The next few months will be busy with the holiday rush, so you can pre-order your copy of THE ART OF TAMING A RAKE now and have it delivered on release day. For a limited time, Amazon is offering the paperback version for 1/3 off the cover price. So, pre-order today if you want to take advantage of that great $5.03 price!

As a thank you to my wonderful, long-time readers for your support over these many years, I’m holding an exclusive holiday contest with several beautiful necklaces as prizes, along with your choice of a previous Legendary Lovers book, PRINCESS CHARMING, LOVER BE MINE, or SECRETS OF SEDUCTION.
