Question Wednesday: Albrights

Every week I answer a question from a reader or writer here on my blog. You can add a question to the queue by putting it in the comments on any blog. This week’s question is a general one I get quite often:

Will you ever write a book for the 4th Albright Sister, Winifred? You mention her and her husband Milo in the epilogue to Nothing Denied, but we never got to see her love story. [Read more...]

A Matter of Sin is OUT!!

MatterOfSin-A72lgI love these days because I get to announce a new book being out! And today is extra special because it’s the first book in a new series. So here we go….

A Matter of Sin is out today! This is the first book in my Ladies Book of Pleasures series, which is about a VERY naughty book circulating through Society and three friends whose lives are irrevocably changed by it.

I really love this series, in fact I have been wanting to write it for a very long time so I hope you’ll pick it up and love it as much as I do!… [Read more...]

Beautiful Distraction is OUT!!

BeautifulDistraction72lgWell, the day is finally here! Beautiful Distraction is out!! A release day is always special (and stressful) for me and this one is no different. Why?

First: Because it’s the last book in The Pleasure Wars series. It’s been a favorite of mine and judging from your feedback, also of yours. So much so that none of us wanted to let it end and I added this last novella.

Second: Because it’s a very different story.… [Read more...]

The Last Month of a Pretty Awesome Year

Happy December! It’s so weird to think it’s the last month of the year when I swear it only started a few months ago. But here we are and of course the end of the year has me reflecting on the past year. It has had its highs and lows, but on the whole it’s been great.

Because of all of you, I’ve sold more books this year than I probably ever have in my career.… [Read more...]

Yes, It’s Still Release Week

Well, we’ve almost all survived the release week of Pleasuring the Lady. Thanks for all the support and for all the sales!

I’ve definitely spent time this week pacing, clicking obsessively on refresh buttons for sales reports, a little bit of crying and a lot of being grateful for my readers.

So thank you. And next week I promise to be less crazy. Of course it’s a holiday week (American Thanksgiving) so there will be that craziness instead.… [Read more...]

Pleasuring the Lady is Out!!!!

So for years before I published, I looked at the mailbox with great excitement. Any day I could receive a letter asking for a full manuscript from a publisher (yes, I was trying to get published in the stone ages, whatever). So every day when the mail would come, I would say to myself, “Today, today, it could be today!”

Today, today, it IS today!!

Well, not the selling of a book but having yet another book on sale!!!… [Read more...]

Keep Calm and Get Ready for Release Month

Buckle your seatbelts, take a breath and get ready for me to run squealing through the streets, it’s November! Why is that awesome, you ask? Wellllllll….

I can’t believe it, but Pleasuring the Lady is out this month!!

A release month is always amazing. I’m excited and thrilled and hopeful. After all, the first book in the series, Taken By the Duke, did better than I ever could have hoped. I know there are a lot of you who have been waiting for this book to see what’s going to happen to Ava’s friend Portia.… [Read more...]

Question Wednesday: Why No Winifred?

Every Wednesday I answer a reader question here at the blog! You can add your question to the queue by just asking it in the comments of any blog or emailing it to me at

This week’s question isn’t from a specific reader, but I get asked it a lot. Why didn’t you ever write a book for Winifred Albright, the youngest sister of the Albright Sisters (Everything Forbidden, Something Reckless and Nothing Denied)? [Read more...]

Speaking/Conference Schedule for 2014

As 2013 starts to slowly spiral toward its end, I’ve been starting to schedule my speaking engagements for 2014. I used to travel a lot and then I slowed down when we moved and the couple years after. But 2014 is a “Big Year” for me. Meaning I have some big goals and I’m focusing almost 100% on my career. So here are my current speaking/appearances scheduled:

As you can see, it’s a pretty packed schedule, but I am happy to make room for more!… [Read more...]

Taken By the Duke is out!!!!

TakenByTheDukeSmallHave I ever mentioned what a tangle of emotions I feel on a release day? First, I’m excited because there’s another book out. And I LOVE this book so much, especially. I feel like I’ve been waiting for it forever.

But there’s also so much fear and anxiety. What if none of you buy it? What if all of you hate it? I lay awake the night before and just… brood. It’s very alpha hero of me, I promise.… [Read more...]
