I am a USA Today best-selling author of witty, sexy romance novels for grownups. Two of my books have been selected as finalists for the Romance Writers of America’s RITA Award, which I can only hope means I’m doing something right.
If you like your heroines sassy, your heroes tortured, and your endings happy, you’re in the right place.
I hope you’ll wander around, make yourself comfortable, and even join in the conversation over on my blog, where I blather on about all things reading and writing romance.
I do book recommendations most Wednesdays and a giveaway almost every Friday. New participants are always welcome!

Things Worth Knowing
Truly, the first book in my forthcoming New York Series, is currently available as a free read on Wattpad!
Truly will be pulled at the end of the year, so read it while you can — online or using the Wattpad app. Truly will be published by Loveswept/Random House in Fall 2014, with Madly and Completely to follow.
If you live on the West Coast, consider attending Book Ball on February 28 – March 1.
Participating authors include ME, as well as Alice Clayton, Sylvia Day, Cara McKenna, Katy Evans, Christina Lauren, Monica Murphy, Kristen Proby, Tiffany Reisz, Andrew Shaffer, and Tara Sue Me.
The main event will be a social on February 28 from 6-10 p.m. in a Disney-adjacent hotel, where we’ll have authors, readers, food, drinks, and exclusive VIP swag! Spend some quality time with your favorite authors, get your books signed, relax, and socialize. We have tons of fun things planned, including giveaways and a chance for thirteen attendees to win dinner with the authors on Saturday, 3/1. Don’t have all the books? Don’t worry! Barnes and Noble will be on site!
Tickets are $100, and they go on sale October 15.
In addition, the authors will be participating in a free in-store book signing on Saturday, March 1. Hope to see some of you in California!
On April 26, 2014, I’ll be in Milwaukee for the Barbara Vey Reader Appreciation Luncheon. Debbie Macomber will be the keynote speaker! Signups open on August 1 — visit the website for details.
