Monday Mayhem - I have a super special announcement #newrelease #books #romance

Happy new year! I hope that 2014 was good to you. I must admit that it went by me like a whirlwind and I can't believe we're already welcoming a new year--a new beginning. I just love beginnings. They hold so much hope--so much promise. And I plan to make the absolute most of 2015. I have big plans to share with you. Hmm...now where do I begin. ;-)

I've just completed revisions on my 9th Harlequin Romance. I was invited to participate in an 8-book continuity series based on a small Tuscany village. The series launches in July with Susan Meier's book. My book, RETURN OF THE ITALIAN TYCOON, is the second book in the series, releasing in August. You'll be hearing more about this exciting series soon!

And I'd like to say thank you to all of the wonderful readers who wrote to me after reading A PRINCESS BY CHRISTMAS and requested the crown prince's story. I passed along your requests to my editors and after a bit of juggling with my release schedule, I'm pleased to share that I am now writing Prince Demetrius's story. It will be my 2015 Christmas book. :-)

That isn't all! I have a lot more to share with you so please keep reading...

And now for my BIG Announcement!

This year I am launching an ongoing series - Whistle Stop Romances. This has been a long time in the works for me and at last it has all come together. I couldn't be more excited to share the characters of Whistle Stop, New Mexico with you.

The first book will be out in February (digital / print coming soon) - 

Welcome to Whistle Stop…where anything can and most likely will happen.
The notorious cowboy meets his match…
Cord Lawson instantly distrusted the young woman in a smart suit who’d just arrived in Whistle Stop.  She was very pretty and clearly a city girl—but with memories of his failed marriage still darkening his mind, he’s determined to steer clear!  But she’s sniffing around his land—land that has been in his family for generations. There was no way he’d let it go—even if the bank was threatening to foreclose, and even if selling could give Whistle Stop a new lease on life.

Alexis Greer had one mission—close the deal on the Lawson ranch; without it, her father’s land development company would go bankrupt.  But the word around town is to keep clear of Cord and to stay away from his precious land.  What had happened to cause such a handsome cowboy to live such a solitary existence?  However, determination was Lexi’s middle name. She just had to keep on trying to breach Cord’s barriers, to appeal somehow to his head and heart—even if it put her in danger of losing both of hers…to him.  

You can find it HERE.
