A Note From Lynsay

Brr... I woke up this morning to frost on my car and it was COOOLD! We got a little taste of old man winter last night and, wow, I am so not ready for this yet. I hope you brought your plants inside already. "Go back to your break Jack Frost, we're good!" Ah... if only it were that simple. I guess considering it is November, this is something we will have to live with... for now. Unfortunately I have more bad news for those of you who, like me, prefer the more temperate months. November is the last month of the fall season, my favorite season btw, and then we will be engulfed in old man winter's frigid embrace. And although I do consider myself a pretty open and accepting person, I doubt I will ever enjoy winter enough to give the old man a hug. Which is really too bad as everyone deserves a hug. Read on...

Armand Argeneau has been living on a farm squirrelled away from public life for decades without anyone bothering him. Until now that is. Lucian has been kind enough to volunteer Armand to babysit Eshe d'Aureus in order to protect her from a rogue vampire out for revenge. At least that's the story he's told. In reality, Eshe was sent to Armand on assignment to find clues to explain his many wives' 'accidental' deaths. This installment of the Argeneau/Rogue Hunter series will also answer the unanswered questions from Nicholas's story, The Renegade Hunter.


Upcoming Releases

November 30, 2010: Hungry For You, the fourteenth book in the Argeneau/Rogue Hunter series will be coming out this December. It involves the last of the Willan sisters, Alex, and one of Martine Argeneau's older sons, Cale. Alex is a successful chef and restauranteur trying to expand her business, unfortunately the new location's debut seems to be riddled with bad luck. Can Cale, a successful european chef . . . er . . . businessman, help her keep her business afloat and still keep her frazzled attention long enough to see him for who he really is . . . the love of her life?

January 25, 2011: The Countess, the first book in Lynsay's new historical series called the Madison Sisters will be starting 2011 off right! A fairytale marriage Christiana did not have. As a matter of fact the best part about it was the abrupt ending when her husband, Richard (or Dicky as he liked to be called), died. Or at least that's what they thought when Christiana and her sisters put him on ice. Only he didn't stay dead AND he became nice... huh?! And now the new and improved Richard can't help wondering if Christiana's sweetness isn't all an act. That she's actually a money-hungry murderess with great acting skills.

February 22, 2011: The Heiress, the second book in the Madison Sisters series will be hard on the Countess's heels. You met Suzette in Christiana's story and now you get to hear her story. Suzette needs a husband NOW. No doddling, whining or even love required. Anyone would do and the poorer the better as she needs a potential husband who is happy and pliable so she can access her substantial dowry to help pay off her father's overwhelming gambling debts. Daniel seemed to fit the bill to a 't' and their obvious chemistry was an added bonus. Now the only issue would be to try to stay alive and keep their hands off each other long enough to keep Suzette's virtue intact until they make it to Gretna Green.

Fun With Emma &Tigger - Did He Just Grin?!

As I stated in the last newsletter, there are two cats in the household. One is a grey tabby named Emma, the Sands housecat and queen of the Sands domain. The other is a 3-year-old orange tabby named Tigger. Tigger still chases things especially Emma. And occasionally Terri will take a break and chase after Tigger. She says he likes it and I guess he does as he does the cat posturing (sideways bounce, hair up trying to make himself look big even though he's not) and ends up chasing after Terri when she retreats. The funniest part is when I see Tigger slink into her office while she's working away, her desk littered with paperwork, her attention focused on her laptop. Shortly after which I hear tearing sounds like paper being shorn into pieces and then a shout as Terri discovers his latest antics. Tigger's no dummy and he goes dashing out of the office before she can catch him. This is soon followed by some pretty imaginative expletives as she surveys the damage.

Tigger loves to be the center of attention and will go out of his way to do so. This includes sitting directly in front of the TV screen when you're watching it. Another good example of this is when Terri does the mailing and thus must wrap up books to be sent off. I can hear the slow crinkling of paper as she bends it this way and that but you can always tell when Tigger has interrupted her progress. I know this because the slow crinkling turns into a loud furious crunching and then another round of impressively creative expletives followed by Tigger bounding out of her office, past my desk and into the living room. I know cats can't smile but I swear I see him grinning from ear to ear after these disturbances. Poor Terri. All I can say is it's a good thing she loves animals.
