His Abducted Bride is finally out!

It was a very long month for me because I am not used to sitting on a book once it’s done and ready to be published.  I’m relieved that I finally have this one out.

(Will be coming soon to Kobo and Sony.)

His Reluctant Lady is going to be out around August 6

I’ll post the links for that on this blog at when it’s available on Amazon and B&N.  In the meantime, it is available for pre-order at the following:

Kent Ashton’s Backstory – first draft done!

kent ashton's backstory ebook

I’m happy to say I finished the first draft on it.  It’s a novella (about 13 chapters).  I wrote it to answer the question of why Kent did the things he did in the romance Falling In Love With Her Husband (which featured Ann Statesman and Todd Brothers).

I don’t plan to publish this until I have Catching Kent out.  Kent Ashton’s Backstory is a prequel to Catching Kent and I’d like to have the two out together.   That way if you want to read the prequel, you can read Catching Kent right away.

Catching Kent (used to be Lassoing Her Groom)

I didn’t care much for the cover, and after I spent a month looking for a suitable picture that would fit Lassoing Her Groom, I gave up and decided to change the title.  So Lassoing Her Groom is now Catching Kent.  This was one of those books that was hard to name and title.  Some books are easy to do and others just aren’t.  I’m happy with the new cover.

I’m over the halfway point in this romance.  This will be a full-length romance, and it is where Kent Ashton will get his second chance at love.

I am hoping to have Kent Ashton’s Backstory and Catching Kent available in late September/early October.  *fingers crossed*

The Stagecoach Bride is on hold

I’ll let you know when this is due to be published, but for the time being, it’s on hold.

Bride by Arrangement is on track

This anthology is going along nicely.  I’m in chapter seven of mine.  I changed the title of mine from “Pete’s Wife” to “The Purchased Bride”.  Janet Syas Nistick’s novella is “She Came By Train” and she’s in chapter two.  My novella is going to be longer than Janet’s.  At the moment, we are looking at a released date some time in December.  *fingers crossed*

The Earl’s Scandalous Wife

This is Lord Clement (aka Perry)’s romance.  I am finally writing it!  I wanted to marry his ward, Christopher Robinson, first.  Now that I did that, I can move on to Perry’s book.  Progress has been slow in this one, but at least I established the scandal.  I am finally at chapter 3.  I’d also like to get this book out before the end of this year.  *fingers crossed*

Boaz’s Wager

I finally started this one and am at chapter 2.  I hope to get this one at either later this year or early next.

I actually have a description of this one.  (The descriptions for the other books are in progress.)

Here’s the description for this one:

What Boaz Grady wants more than anything else is to have his children living with him.  But in order to get them back, he needs to marry a woman who’ll be their mother.

Eva Connealy left Omaha, Nebraska to be a school teacher.  While in Montana, her stagecoach is attacked, and the men decide to sell her.  While the men in Lewistown post bids for her, Boaz makes a wager of his own and wins the right to marry her.

Despite the shaky beginning, Boaz is sure she’ll adjust to her new life as his children’s mother.  But she wants to be more than a mother.  She also wants to be a wife and vows to figure out how to take their marriage of convenience into something much, much more.
