Joan'sweddingphotoHappy Valentine’s Day! I just finished packing up a box of Valentine goodies to ship to my daughter, son-in-law, and grandkids—more paper hearts and flowers than candy ones.  I’m enough of a romantic to have been married on Valentine’s Day (a very long time ago!)  I hope you’ll share your Valentine’s Day love stories with me on my Facebook page.

If you’ve been following the Benedict Brothers in my Bitter Creek series and like reading books the old fashioned way, you’ll be happy to know that UNFORGETTABLE is now available for print-on-demand at CreateSpace.  Of course you can also download a digital copy for any ereader:  NOOK, KINDLE, and SMASHWORDS for all other ebook devices.

premiereI’m thrilled to let you know that the Romance Writers of America anthology PREMIERE is now available. I’m proud to have my story “Coming Home,” which features Savannah Whitelaw from my Hawk’s Way series, included alongside some of the world’s most popular romance writers including Sylvia Day, Vicki Lewis Thompson, and Allison Brennan. PREMIERE is available for print, ebook and audio through my website.

While you’re there, don’t forget to sign up for my enewsletter and enter my monthly contest.  This month I’m giving away a trade paperback (yes—I said paperback) copy of my newest Benedict Brothers novel UNFORGETTABLE to one lucky winner!  You can also preorder SINFUL, my next Bitter Creek novel, which will be in stores and available online on April 28.  Enjoy!

Happy reading,


PREMIERE can be purchased in eBook or paperback format

One of the most popular romance writers in America today, former attorney and college professor Joan Johnston has over 10 million books in print world-wide — including the New York Times bestsellers SISTERS FOUND, THE COWBOY, THE TEXAN, THE LONER, THE NEXT MRS. BLACKTHORNE and NO LONGER A STRANGER..
THE PRICE represented a milestone in Johnston’s career as her first hardcover original.

Joan Johnston has an eclectic background. Now the bestselling, award-winning author of forty-five novels, she was formerly an attorney with Hunton & Williams in Richmond, Virginia and Squire, Sanders & Dempsey in Miami, Florida. Joan also worked as a newspaper editor and drama critic in San Antonio, Texas, as a director of theatre in Southwest Texas, and as a college professor, most recently at the University of Miami, Florida. Joan has a B.A. in theatre arts from Jacksonville University in Jacksonville, Florida, an M.A. in theatre from the University of Illinois in Urbana and received her J.D. with honors from the University of Texas at Austin School of Law.

Joan loves to travel and visited England and Scotland to do research for her Captive Hearts series (Captive, After the Kiss, The Bodyguard and The Bridegroom). She also made journeys to Tahiti, Australia and Bali–for a South Seas, WWII novel that she hopes to write. Joan’s books have appeared on the New York Times, USA TODAY and Publishers Weekly Bestseller Lists.

For her Bitter Creek series, Joan toured the legendary King Ranch in South Texas and took a course on tracking (humans and animals!) from a Deputy Marshal deep in the Big Bend country of West Texas. She also traveled to Australia to tour the big cattle stations there and see what life is like Down Under.

Joan is a member of the Authors Guild, Novelists, Inc., Romance Writers of America and Florida Romance Writers. She divides her time between homes in Colorado and South Florida.

Johnston recently became a grandmother for the second time. Her daughter, a teacher, lives in the Tampa area. Her son, a budding novelist, lives in Orlando.

One thought on “I LOVE A GOOD ROMANCE, DON’T YOU?”

    I just read Coming Home and wonder if there will be more to Luke and Savannah’s story and if she ever forgives her parents Jack and Holly McKinley. I love your books especially Bitter Creek. I am reading the series for the 4th time.
