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.

Anyway, this is the time of year we all get to dig around in that pile of boxes in the attic in search of winter wear. I call this new sport... Rubbermaid diving! A variation to dumpster diving, but not so icky...well, hopefully it isn't as icky, but you never know what you'll find living in the boxes in your attic. To me trying to find and coordinate those mismatched gloves, hats and scarves is worse than trying to find the lost socks that your dryer ate. I have a red glove, a cream colored Isa-toner, a black scarf, a red and black scarf, and a purple hat. Oh! I almost missed one, another black glove. I'm going to look like a dork if I try to wear what I have. Maybe I should put it all on and ask Terri what she thinks... <WG>. Terri tends to be pretty polite so it would be funny watching her pained expressions as she attempts to tell me how bad it looks without offending me. LOL.

And then there's the winter coat. I have a couple of winter coats, but I know some people that have a LOT of coats. Like a dozen or so. Now why would someone have so many coats you ask? I haven't a clue. I do understand why you may need a couple; one for casual everyday use, one for formal, and one that you just plain forgot to throw out last year. But if you have more than four or five coats (gave you a little leeway here), either you're a spender (tsk tsk!) or a hoarder (now don't be 'na na-ing' the spenders as you're not much better!). If you have a jacket from the 80's then you know you're a hoarder. All I have to say to that is... let it go! I guarantee you that shoulder pads will not be coming back in style and if perchance they do, you won't fit into that 30-year-old jacket anyway. Now if you CAN squeeze yourself into that eighties throwback, then I must ask you this... Do you have a sensitivity to light? Do you look unnaturally young for your age? Do you get eerily fixated on an exposed throat? If so, then all I can say is you lucky son-of-a-gun! And tell me how you did it! <G>

So Terri has told me that there is a new contest this month for all of you lovely newsletter readers. Each winner will get a signed copy of Hungry For You, the details of which can be found below. Our intention is to send out the winners' copies so they get it before Hungry For You hits the bookstore shelves. Hope you like it!

As for what I've been working on, I just finished Christian's story (I had so much fun with his story, I was sorry to see it end!) and Teddy's story (also fun). I am now thinking about what I'll be working on next and though I have an idea, I'll let you know in the next newsletter, which will be in about four weeks when we announce the winners of the Argeneau Contest #15.

Well, I'm off again. I'll chat with you next month. Happy reading!

August 31, 2010: Born To Bite, the thirteenth book in the Argeneau/Rogue Hunter series, is here! 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.
