Break out the margaritas, it’s party time in the lair! I’m celebrating the release of SOMETHING SCANDALOUS, which officially comes out tomorrow!!
So, sit back and have some fun with me while we talk about scandalous things.
I’ve brought along some of my heroines from past and future books. Avis, the heroine of EVERY NIGHT I’M YOURS looked around the lair and noticed the writing cave. Needless to say, she ran off to finish her latest book.
Jennette, my heroine from EVERY TIME WE KISS is already having one of the cabana boys mix her a margarita. Someone needs to keep an eye on her for me. She tends to over indulge when I’m not watching her.
I just found Elizabeth, my current heroine from SOMETHING SCANDALOUS. She is attempting to create order out of chaos by organizing the cabana boys and the massages given by Sven. Someone hand her a drink and tell her to sit back and relax. It’s her day!
Where is Victoria? She’s my heroine from my October release, SCANDAL OF THE SEASON. Oh, there she is, sitting over by the wall and looking uncomfortable. Maybe she needs a drink. But only one for her, she’s a lightweight.
And for anyone who wants their future read, Sophie has already set up a table not too far from the bar. Sophie is my matchmaker for anyone who hasn’t read my books. She is matching all her friends with their true love. Her book may be titled HER PERFECT MATCH (or may not be, I don’t know yet) but her story will be out in June 2011.
Now that we’re all acquainted, sit back and have some fun. I started my Spinster Club series six years ago. It started when I was in the middle of another book and had two secondary characters, Avis and Banning, who wanted to take over the story. When I was writing the other book, my goal was not to write a continuing series or take any of the secondary characters and write a book for them. Well, Avis and Banning were having none of that. They wouldn’t let me sleep at night and then four other women were invading my dreams, too. Suddenly, I had the idea of writing about these five women who had no desire to marry. The only problem with that was one of the women was matching them with their true loves.
Now six years later, I just finished writing my last book in the series. It was a fun time, but I’m ready to move on and let them have their happy ever afters.
But now, let’s hear more about SOMETHING SCANDALOUS.
Raised as the youngest daughter of the Duke of Kendal, Elizabeth learns a devastating truth on his deathbed: he wasn’t her father at all. And because the Duke had no sons, his title and fortune must go to his only male heir: a distant cousin who left England for America long ago. Anticipating the man’s imminent occupation of her home, Elizabeth anxiously searches for her mother’s diary, and the secret of her paternity…
Arriving in London with his seven siblings, William Atherton intends to sell everything and return to his beloved Virginia farm, and his fiancée, as quickly as possible. But as Elizabeth shows William an England he never knew, and graciously introduces his siblings to London society, it becomes clear the two are meant for each other. Soon, Elizabeth finds herself determined to seduce the man who can save not only her family name, but her heart…
Now my heroines are here but where are my heroes? If you want to help me look for them that would be great! Other than Elizabeth’s hero, Will, all the men have been seen in one of my books. So where are they? Any guesses on who Victoria and Sophie will end up with?
I’m giving away a copy of SOMETHING SCANDALOUS to two lucky people today. I’ll choose two random names from the comments. So talk to me! If you haven’t read my books and don’t have a clue about my heroes, that’s okay. Tell me what you’re drinking and if Sven’s coming over for a massage.
Mostly, HAVE FUN!
