New Cover…..Date With Destiny

I have a sparkly new cover for my August Harlequin Special Edition release, Date with Destiny…… DWD2

I just love the new look covers and this one really sets the scene for Grace and Cameron’s story.

I’ve had many readers asking me when the ultra cool and closed-off Grace will meet her match and am so happy that she finally gets her happy ending.

And I’m doing a blog tour to celebrate the release of Date with Destiny in August with books and other give-aways so I hope you can join me!

Release Day …… His-And-Hers Family ….

My third Harlequin Special Edition, His-And-Hers Family is released today!

I’ve had so many reader emails asking me about Fiona Walsh, the good natured and bubbly schoolteacher who played a part in my first two books which were also set in the small town of Crystal Point.  I’m delighted that she finds her own happy ever after in His-And-Hers Family.

It’s available here from Harlequin …..

Or here from Amazon …..

I hope you enjoy Fiona and Wyatt’s story and I look forward to inviting you back to Crystal Point very soon.

Another Crystal Point book on it’s way . . .

I’m excited to say that a few weeks ago I sold Book 4 in my Crystal Point series.

Out of all the letters and emails I recieved from readers about book 1, Made For Marriage, one of the most often asked questions was – what happens to the girl in the red dress? That girl was Grace Preston – the uber smart and all-business New Yorker who never lets anyone get close. When I first conceived the idea for my Crystal Point series and the characters started to come alive, I always sensed that Grace would be a stand-out character – mostly because she is so seriously flawed. I also knew that Grace would need a special man who could see past her prickles and frosty reserve and to the woman beneath – and right from the very beginning I knew that man would be Cameron Jakowski. The small town cop is a family friend and the one person who has always been able to get under Grace’s super-cool skin.

The book will be released in mid 2013 and hopefully will be followed by a few more in the series. and for those readers who asked when is the free-spirited Mary-Jayne Preston going to meet her mach? Well, I’m working on it and will keep you posted.

Marriage Under The Mistletoe …. Cover!

I have a fabulous new cover for my November release Marriage Under The Mistletoe.

The art department at Harlequin have once again made my day. They have really captured the feel of the book and the characters and I just love the Christmas elements in the picture. It is everything I imagined it would be.

Don’t forget you can pre-order it from Amazon …..

And my January 2013 release, His-And-Hers Family is available for pre-order from Amazon too!

 

 

On The Shelf . . .

A couple of days ago I had one of those unforgettable experiences – I got to see my book on the shelves for the first time. Made For Marriage is a June Harlequin Blush release in Australia, after hitting the shelves in the US in January and the UK in March. It was quite a wait since its initial release and when I was out shopping with my sister on Saturday morning we headed for one of the big local chain stores and spotted it. We squeed, hugged and then took a photograph.

Actually, seeing the book on the shelf was all kinds of awesome and I’m so glad my sister was with me to share the moment because she was always one of my strongest supporters during those years when I was writing and submitting and trying to get published.

Of course I’m hoping to have many more books on the shelves . . . but like most ‘firsts’ in life, this one feels extra special.

 

 

Australian cover for Made For Marriage . . .

I’m very excited to see the Australian cover for my book Made For Marriage.

And equally excited to be sharing the duo with the awesome Karen Templeton, who has been one of my favorite Special Edition authors for the past decade.

I am so looking forward to seeing the book on the shelves. That’s one photo opportunity I’m not going to miss 🙂

Made For Marriage is released in Australia in June.

Book 3 release date and title . . .

I have a release date and a new title for book 3 in my Crystal Point series.

It’s called His-And-Hers Family and will be released by Harlequin Special Edition in the US in January 2013.

This is Fiona’s story, so to all the lovely readers who emailed me and asked what was happening to the cheerful redhead and when would I be writing her story, look out for her book early next year! I’ll have a cover up on my books page when it’s available.
