I remember the first time I heard about Outlander, which was just a few years ago. I must have been the only person on the planet who hadn’t heard of Diana Gabaldon. My critique partner was so excited about this book she’d read. I trust her judgment so I picked up the book. Usually, I don’t care to read about the time period Outlander begins with, but I kept reading, and when I’d finished the entire book, I was hooked.
Happy Memorial Day everyone! In honor of our heroes everywhere, past and present, I hope you enjoy your day and remember the importance of freedom and all that have and will sacrifice the ultimate to keep our country safe. Fortunately, the weather is gorgeous here and I’m enjoying a fun day with family — BBQ on the ready For some reason, I started thinking about past historical heroes and because of my anxious anticipation of Outlander, Diana Gabaldon’s time travel phenomena, Jamie Fraser popped into my mind and his funny quote — one of many — when Claire admitted having come from the future, and Jamie said, “It would ha’ been a good deal easier, if ye’d only been a [...]

“Engaged in Sin” (on sale 11/1/11) is my second Dell historical romance, and features one of my most ‘tortured heroes’, Devon Audley, the Duke of March. Wounded in battle at Waterloo, Devon was left blinded and is tormented by memories of war. “Engaged in Sin” includes two of my favorite themes: redemption and healing.

Devon Audley went to war even though, as a duke’s son and heir to the title, he should not go. He went to escape the grief of losing his fiancee, only to throw himself into a horrifying [...]
