February 2018 Newsletter

I wanted to wait until I was finished with the first draft of Make Believe Bride before making this post. That way I had something fun to mention. 🙂

The first draft of Make Believe Bride (Marriage by Fate Series: Book 3) is done!

I finished it yesterday. I’ll spend the next couple of days doing the initial edits, and then it’ll go to my awesome editing team! I don’t have a release date yet, but I plan to have it out next month. More details will be coming in the March Newsletter.


In the meantime, I’m happy to say I finally have a release date for The Rejected Groom!

Due out February 17!

The Rejected Groom Ebook Cover

This is Book 2 in the Misled Mail Order Brides Series. This is Anthony (Tony) Larson’s romance. Tony is one of the twin boys that Richard and Amanda Larson had. I’ll make another post when this book is released, and I’ll give more information about this book at that time.

If you want, you can pre-order your copy now so it goes directly to your e-reading device as soon as it goes live.


Amazon UK

Barnes & Noble




Sometimes I get asked what books have some from the Larsons in it. For your convenience, I have made up a list. More Larson books will be coming. I plan to write more stories for the Larsons in the future.  I have a lot of fun with this family, and I’m looking forward to doing more with them.

For easy reference, here are all of the books I’ve written so far that has someone in the Larson family in it:

  • Wagon Trail Bride – this features Richard Larson
  • Her Heart’s Desire – this features Sally Larson
  • A Bride For Tom – this features Tom Larson
  • Eye of the Beholder – this features Dave Larson
  • The Wrong Husband – this features Jenny Larson
  • Shotgun Groom – this features Joel Larson
  • To Have And To Hold – this is a second Dave Larson book (includes the same heroine)
  • The Rejected Groom – this features Tony Larson (Richard’s son)
  • The Perfect Wife – this features Mark Larson (Richard’s son); book is due out in the summer 2018
  • Isaac’s Decision – this features Isaac Larson (Dave’s son)
  • Boaz’s Wager – Rachel Larson (Dave’s daughter) is a secondary character in this one
  • Catching Kent – this features Rose Larson (Dave’s daughter)
  • His Convenient Wife – this features Harriett Larson (Dave’s daughter)

I’m halfway into The Marriage Contract (Marriage by Fairytale Series: Book 1)

The Marriage Contract new ebook cover

For those of you who read The Rake’s Vow and Married In Haste, you’ll remember Mr. Stephen Bachman who created problems for his sister, Loretta (heroine in The Rake’s Vow), and his older brother, Brad (hero in Married In Haste). Well, he’s gotten what’s coming to him. This book takes place five years after Married In Haste, and Stephen’s had to deal with what he deserved. By the time this book happens, he’s a different person.

I don’t know how many of you who read my Regencies also read my historical westerns, but Stephen Bachman is a lot like Neil Craftsman in that he was a rascal who turned his life around.

heart and roses

I’m gong to end this here because I want to get Make Believe Bride edited and The Marriage Contract finished up before the end of this month. I hope everyone has an awesome month with lots of good romances to read!
