Release Day! Forbidden: The Soulkeepers + Giveaway!

I can’t believe this day has finally arrived! It’s a walking on air kind of day never to be repeated. There is only one debut novel for a writer, and I’m so happy that mine is Forbidden, a story very close to my heart. Several years ago when I first began writing Forbidden, I had no idea that the paranormal genre was so popular. Big surprise on me! But what got me even more was the never-ending interest in the particular theme of Angels. (So it’s not just me :D) There are few things that have captured and sustained my imagination more than Angels. When we’re little, Angels are often seen as that soft idea hovering around our peripheral beliefs. [...]  Read more

My Prince Charming is in New Zealand!! + Giveaway

A little bit of England has come to NZ. Prince William, his wife Kate, and their son Prince George are touring New Zealand, as part of their tour Down Under, and they have won over the media, the people they have met, and those of us watching from a distance. The country is buzzing with excitement with people lining the streets to catch a glimpse, or to be lucky enough to talk with William or Kate, and of course see baby George. Everyone is trying to decide whom he looks like. The Prince last came to New Zealand when he was a baby, and now he’s back, all grown up, with a baby and wife of his own! Princess Diana, [...]  Read more

Finding the Love (and Laughs!) In Tax Day

It’s that time of year again. April 15th is here and all of us are thinking about our taxes. While paying money to Uncle Sam might not bring a laugh to your lips, I’d bet IRS Special Agent Tara Holloway would. She’s the star of my hilarious romantic mystery series, and is such a fantastic sharpshooter that she’s known as the Annie Oakley of the IRS. Of course, she’s also got a good-looking guy – or two! – in the mix. All work and no play, after all… What is it that makes the combination of romance and comedy so popular? I have several theories. The first is that love makes us feel scared and vulnerable. We are both intensely [...]  Read more

Every Part of You: Resists Me (Every Part of You #2) by Megan Hart

The second installment in New York Times bestselling author Megan Hart’s erotic e-serial. The dance has begun. Simone’s ready to follow all her desires, but reluctant Elliott isn’t ready to take the lead. After teasing Elliott into going dancing with her, Simone seduces him. She knows what she wants and isn’t afraid of asking for it, and Elliott appears to be as eager as she is to see where their passion takes them. The sex is electric, but Elliott is taken aback by his response to her, and when Simone reveals her kink for pain to him, he’s unable to accept it and tells her he doesn’t want to see her again.

Friday Love Poems: “XVI” by Adrienne Rich

I’m a serious poetry lover. So April aka National Poetry Month is pretty much my favorite month of the year.  Last week, I spotlighted Robert Hass’s poem, “Happiness,” and I’m excited to share a new poem with you today.  This week’s poem comes from the late, great Adrienne Rich. Rich was a hugely influential feminist poet, probably most well known for her piece, “Diving Into the Wreck.” The poem below, however, comes from her collection of poems, “Twenty-One Love Poems.” They are a sensual exploration and celebration of the love between two women. Rich, who was married to a man and had children, spent the later part of her life with her longtime partner, Michelle Cliff. In 2012, Rich passed [...]  Read more

Weekend Reading: TEMPTING FATE by Jane Green

This was my first Jane Green (Jemima J, Another Piece of My Heart) novel, and it will not be my last. I could not put this book down, finished it in 48 hours, and probably would have read it even more quickly if I hadn’t kept stopping to text my best friend about it. Gabby has been married for eighteen years to Elliot, a gastroentrologist. They have two daughters, sixteen-year-old Olivia and eleven-year-old Alanna. They live in the suburbs of Connecticut, have lots of friends, and a beautiful house. When Gabby goes along for a girls night out to a bar, she’d rather be at home curled up with Elliot, watching a movie. She’s appalled out how the other moms [...]  Read more
