Upcoming Releases

Sept 29 2009: The Renegade Hunter, which is the 12th book in the Argeneau/Rogue Hunter series is coming out this fall.  It will introduce you to an Argeneau who has been out of the picture for quite a while.  Intrigue and mystery surround this character and many of the Argeneaus you’ve met in the past will get involved in this story, along with your favourite enforcers and even a Willan or two.

January 2010: Another paranormal anthology called Bitten By Cupid will be coming out this winter. And because four very different writers will be contributing to this anthology, there will definitely be something every reader can sink their teeth into. Heads up for all you Argeneau fans, as this one involves Tiny! What immortal woman can resist a man who is courageous, funny, gentle, is talented in the kitchen and built like a linebacker?

Winter 2010: Taming The Highland Bride, the second book in the Devil Of The Highlands series will be coming out this winter although no definitive release date has been set as of yet. It involves Evelinde’s brother Alex d’Aumesbery and his bride to be, Merewen, the Stewart Shrew. Merewen has had it with the lot of them! She dreams about getting away and marrying her betrothed, Alex D'Aumesbery. Merry hopes that Alex will be a proper Englishman that isn't weak willed and in his cups by noon like her father and brothers. So why was he drunk the first time they met?

Winter 2010: The Hellion and the Highlander, the third book in the Devil Of The Highlands series will be coming out this winter after Taming The Highland Bride, although no definitive release date has been set as of yet. This story involves Kade Stewart, Merry's brother who went missing during the crusades. After three years in Baibar's prison, Kade, his men and Will Montagne escape. En route to England, a severe storm cuts their party in half and blinds Kade. Not knowing if he will see again, Will's sister, Averille, cares for a Kade comfortable in the knowledge that he can't see her plain features and unseemly red hair. Or can he?
