My latest Harlequin Presents, a story set in Sicily, has been officially accepted and titled. I don’t know when A Dark Sicilian Secret will be scheduled, but fingers crossed it’ll be out this time next year, if not a little sooner.
This was such an intense book, and while I loved my premise, it challenged me at every twist and turn. I hope my romance readers will love this story as I’ve never written anything quite like this before.
To celebrate the book’s acceptance, as well as my deep sigh of relief that it’s finally, truly done, I’m going to get a massage this afternoon and chill out because on Monday I’m back to work on my new women’s fiction single title.
However, I’d like to keep the celebratory feeling going a little longer (because this book did take up my entire summer!) so I’m hosting a special contest for my blog readers this weekend.
One of my all time bestselling Presents novels was another Sicilian story called The Sicilian’s Defiant Mistress and Harlequin Mills & Boon Australia paired it recently in a gorgeous trade size anthology titled “Bedded by Bad Boys” with a story by gifted author Cindy Gerard. Cindy’s novel, The Outlaw Jesse James is incredible, and the fact that it celebrates those sexy rodeo heroes makes it even hotter. I’m crazy about this anthology and think you die hard romance readers will love it, too!
Want to win one of the three copies of this sensational anthology, chocolate treat, and $10 Starbucks drink cards? Just post a comment in the comment section below and and tell me if you’ve ever been to Texas or the South. Or share if you’ve ever been to a rodeo, or have a secret soft spot for country music–and you’re in. Just comment and you’re entered. You don’t have to be a country girl to love this prize–you just have to love romance and a taste for something sweet. Contest ends Monday morning PST at 8 am. I’ll announce the winner in the comment section of my blog by noon and the winners will have two days to get back to me or I’m drawing new winner names!!
Good luck to all, check back in on Monday to see if you’ve won, and now I’m off to get that 60 minute massage. After weeks and weeks of writing, traveling, and working, I can not wait to be spoiled rotten! 🙂
