Thank-you to all my awesome readers. The story that just came out, The Immortal Who Loved Me, hit #5 on the New York Times Bestseller's list and #16 on USA Today and that was all because of you!

Some interesting news... I was recently interviewed for The Sun, a popular Scottish newspaper, and the article just came out yesterday. They called me a "Racy Canadian Author"... I've never thought of myself as a racy writer but there you have it. I am a racy Canadian author. And before you ask I have not been lucky enough to visit Scotland yet nor have I ever dated a man in a kilt. Though one day I will... visit Scotland that is! LOL

As for the kilt, perhaps I can talk my hubby into wearing one one day. ;-)

Scottish newspaper The Sun printed an article on Mar 30th concerning "Racy Canadian Author On Why She Sets Novels Here".

As I mentioned in the last newsletter, we ran The Immortal Who Loved Me Scavenger Hunt. Thanks to all who participated! We had a lot of fun and hope it was fun for you as well. The winners were Herlinda Berry, Vanessa Umrao and the grand prizewinner was Alison LeGros. Congrats ladies!

As for my upcoming releases...

The Highlander Takes A Bride, the 3rd book in my latest Scottish Highlands series, is coming out July 28th, 2015. It involves a lot of sword wielding, cussing, brawling, not to mention being able to drink any man under the table... and that's just the heroine. Did I mention that I'd love to play her if it was ever made into a movie?! (OK, not really because I feel quite panicked in front of audiences. However, if that wasn't the case this would be one character I'd enjoy playing.)

Bricker's story, About A Vampire, is scheduled to come out on September 29th. I had one reader email me stating she was disappointed that Bricker was going to have a "regular" life mate. Well Bricker's potential life mate, Holly, is not exactly your average woman. Besides the fact that she's already married, she is hands down one of the most stubborn characters I've had the pleasure to write about. Good luck Bricker. You're going to need it!!

I just finished one out of two Argeneau stories I'm currently writing. This one involves a character that many of my readers have been asking after. I am finally doing one of the Notte twin's stories! Yes, one of our Italian twins will be getting a life mate and No, I will not tell you which one... At least not yet. <WG> There are a lot of new and exciting things coming down the pipe in the Argeneau series so we just have to try to be patient (I hate having to wait too!) and stay tuned. (Rubs hands enthusiastically.)

Caio for now.

The Highlander Takes A Bride Book #3 in the Scottish Highlander series...

Sword fighting, swearing, and riding astride come naturally to Saidh Buchanan. Simpering and holding her tongue—definitely not. Raised alongside seven boisterous brothers, Saidh has little interest in saddling herself with a husband…until she glimpses the new Laird MacDonnell bathing naked in the loch. Though she’s far from a proper lady, the brawny Highlander makes Saidh feel every inch a woman.

She has an angel’s looks, a warrior’s temper, and seeks out his kisses with wanton eagerness. Little wonder that Greer is intrigued by his comely guest. When reckless desire overtakes them, he’s more than willing to make an honest woman of her. But Saidh is the target of a hidden enemy, and Greer faces the battle of his life…to safeguard the woman he wants above all others.

The Loving Daylights Who doesn't love a good spy...

This James Bond-esc cover is perfect forThe Loving Daylights, a spy novel spoofing the infamous series but with a female lead of course! 

Jane Spyrus is a gadget geek who's much more like a Q than a James Bond.  But of course this isn't a serious mystery with cool lead but a humorous adventure with a charmingly quirky leading lady, her wickedly funny sidekick grandmother with her ever-present yappy lapdog.  And of course we can't forget the handsome and often bemused hero that really has no choice but to follow these ladies into trouble.

Sweet Revenge A scottish historical like no other ...

This is the second book I ever wrote, but the fourth historical of mine published. When I started Sweet Revenge I wanted it to take place in the feuding Scottish Highlands, cause there's nothing sexier than a Scot to me. I also wanted to write a story with a strong female friendship in it. Frankly, female friends rock, especially when times get tough. Fortunately for me, the hero and heroine came walking into my head fully formed. The hero is this mountain of a Scot, a strong and brave warrior who proves himself to be surprisingly considerate in private. As for the heroine, while she's sweet, intelligent and bold, the first impression she makes isn't that great. Okay, basically, the Scots think she's batty. You shouldn't be surprised to hear, then, that I had a blast writing this one.
