A Note To Readers
The reissue of The Switch is now out!
This was the third book of mine ever published. It's about a charming set of twins that make a bold escape from their greedy uncle who became their guardian after a tragic accident killed their parents. However it seems to be a case of out of the pot and into the fire for these two, as they tend to find trouble at every turn.
Wow... All I see is white now when I look out the window. A blizzard passed through and left us a gift of two to three feet of snow. I think Mother Nature must have have been reading over my shoulder when I responded to a few emails the other day. You see I had a couple of readers complain about the upcoming winter. One reader in particular, Lucille, didn't want any of the white stuff heading her way and went so far as to gift all the snow on us "Northerners". Well I responded with a thank-you for the kind offer but we couldn't possibly be so greedy as to keep all of it and that her winter wonderland wouldn't be the same without the fluffy white stuff. So I think this was Mother Nature's response to the reader's suggestion because I see the state she lives in was also hit by a meter of snow. Odds are we are all going to get a white Christmas this year... Sorry Lucille!
Although the white stuff is pretty, it created quite a bit of chaos on our streets and highways. It seems like some drivers have forgotten how to handle the wet, icy and snowy conditions since last winter as there were a record-breaking number of car accidents this past weekend. And according to police the majority of the accidents on our highways were due to rubber necking. See... curiosity can get you into trouble!
On the domestic front, our poor Allie (lab behind the shepherd in the photo) went in for an operation last week. Torn ligament in the back left leg. They put a metal plate in, shaved the bottom bone, etc. Poor thing has a sling on her leg and a cone on her head and is very sore but that doesn't seem to have stopped her enthusiasm. Slowed it down some, Yes, but not stopped. And boy is she strong. Guess who gets to spend the next seven weeks or so lying on the rug in mommy's office? (I think this is going to be a long seven weeks!)
We pulled out our 12-foot Christmas tree over a week ago and even started decorating it however that's as far as I've gotten. The reason I say that's as far as "I" have gotten is my partner in crime quickly fled the scene when I started repositioning balls on the tree. He said something along the lines of I need to finish up some work outside while the weather is still mild, which is code for I must escape before she asks for help decorating the tree! I swear I have never seen the man move that fast just to go outside to do some work. So as I was saying, the ornaments had to be balanced around the tree... Now you have to understand that this is a twelve foot tree and some of the ornaments are the size of small soccer balls. So up and down I went to make sure each one was not to big and not too small with just the right distance between them. Some people might call that being a bit of a perfectionist...I call it necessary! LOL
Well I think that's it for recent news. I hope everyone has fun this winter season and please take it easy on those roads. Talk to you again soon!
As I mentioned The Switch has being reissued this month with a lovely new cover. In this, my third book to be published, a charming pair of twin sisters Charlotte or Charlie and Elizabeth run away. But knowing two women travelling alone would be asking for trouble, they came up with a plan...Charlie would disguise herself as Charles, Elizabeth’s brother. Unfortunately, Lord Radcliffe intercepts them as they try to escape. Cornered they tell Radcliffe about their greedy uncle and his plans to marry Elizabeth to a man whose late wives all died under suspicious circumstances. Lord Radcliffe, concerned for their safety, decides to escort them to London. Along the way Charlie finds herself becoming more and more attracted to Radcliffe… The only problem is she’s supposed to be Charles, a fellow bachelor and Elizabeth's brother.
One Lucky Vampire is the 19th book in the Argeneau series. It's about Stephano Jacob Colson Notte. Stephano was turned in A Bite To Remember after a rogue vampire fatally wounded him. Since then Stephano, or Jake as he goes by now, moved away dropping out of touch with everyone he knew and started a new career as a bodyguard... His life mate is Nicole Phillips, a mortal with a target on her back. Nicole had a lousy marriage and is just two weeks shy of the final step, the divorce. Marguerite has known Nicole since she was young and has followed her career ever since. However there have been a few too many potentially dangerous incidents seemingly directed at Nicole. Concerned for her health both mentally and physically and knowing Nicole would never accept a bodyguard, Marguerite coaxes her into getting a 'housekeeper'. And she knows the perfect person for the job... Jake Colson.
Vampire Most Wanted is the 20th book in the Argeneau series and it's scheduled to be released on February 18, 2014. The latest Argeneau story has to do with another Notte, Marcus Notte, but it also has an immortal I’ve mentioned in a few books, the mysterious Basha. Due to a twist of fate, this lady has been alienated from her family for more than two thousand years. Having been on her own so long she’s learned to live like a gypsy and act like a ghost but she’s about to get the shock of her life when an enforcer successfully tracks her down. Marcus Notte is Julius Notte’s right hand man, but now that Julius no longer needs him to help run the company, Marcus is feeling at loose ends. To fill the void, he agrees to help out Lucian in tracking down Basha, someone Lucian had thought long dead until now.
To Marry A Scottish Laird is scheduled to be released on June 26th. This story is the next book in An English Bride in Scotland series and it’s about Jo, a young woman on a quest to deliver a message to the Laird and Lady MacKay, and Cam, a warrior who saves her from bandits and then offers his escort.
