Now that my Starstruck series is complete, with the release of Starfall in February 2015, I’ve had quite a few readers asking (okay, begging) me to PLEASE write more books in that world. Those readers will be happy to hear that another Starstruck book will be my next project, now that I’ve finished Harry Thatcher’s long-awaited (and long-promised) story for my Regency historical readers.

To introduce new readers to my young adult and Regency books, both Starstruck and Rogue’s Honor are currently FREE at all e-tailers. For more about the Starstruck books and their world, to include special bonus content, check out the  Starstruck Series website. 🙂

As always, for earliest news on upcoming special offerings (as well as the free short stories mentioned above), subscribe to my newsletter. Every month I also give away an autographed “vintage” paperback copy of one of my books to one lucky newsletter subscriber and a free ebook of her/his choice to another lucky subscriber! (One recent winner just happened to win her copy of A Rebellious Bride on her birthday! How cool is that?)

And now, for the books…

It’s wonderful to have every single one of my novels out in the world again, most of them newly edited, and all of them with lovely new covers I commissioned myself.  What a wonderful time to be an author! (I was even able to use my own daughters as cover models for SHIP OF DREAMS and THE CYGNET. How fun is that?) It’s been both exciting and rewarding to finally make these books available again after several years out of print, and I hope those of you who missed them the first time around will enjoy the chance to read them.

To answer a frequently asked question: Though my Saint of Seven Dials books are linked, each absolutely stands alone and it is not necessary to read them in order. This also goes for TESSA’S TOUCH (formerly TAMING TESSA) and THE RUNAWAY HEIRESS, which are spin-offs from that series, though not technically a part of it. Linked or not, all of my Regency-set books (including my traditional Regency romances) are set in the same “world” with a few recurring peripheral characters, so I hope you’ll feel at home with whatever book you happen to pick up.

Currently, I’m working on Harry Thatcher’s long-awaited story, which will be a 5th book in the Saint of Seven Dials series. Stay tuned for progress reports!

And again, thank you so much for stopping by!
