The Eden Empire series is complete and A Christmas Rendezvous is here! It’s a bittersweet moment for me–I’ve so enjoyed writing these books and the remarkable women the series is centered around. It’s sad to think I won’t be writing these characters anymore. BUT, I’m also happy to deliver this final installment to readers. I think A Christmas Rendezvous is a fitting end…the fate of Eden’s department store is on the line and it takes Sophie, Emma, Mindy, and Isabel to save the day. Meanwhile, Isabel finds herself romantically entangled with Jeremy, the man representing the individual who is determined to take Eden’s down. It’s a feel-good tale of strong women, family alliances, and the healing power of love, all set against the snowy backdrop of Christmas in NYC. I hope you decide to not only read A Christmas Rendezvous, but the entire series, which starts and ends with Christmas! If you do, please drop me a line and let me know what you thought!
If you’re curious about what’s next for me…I have four Harlequin Desire books coming in 2020. First up is Forbidden Lust, Book 2 in the all-new Seven Sins series, in June. Then you’ll get The Sterling Wives series in September, October, and November. I will also have a new indie series to introduce. More on that soon! Be sure you’re subscribed to my newsletter to get the latest info. You can sign up HERE.
It’s September, which means the end of summer (sad trombone), back-to-school (happy mom trombone), and for me, it means a brand new book in the world! That’s right. A Bet with Benefits is out! This is Book 3 in the Eden Empire series. If you’re just now getting caught up, Book 1 was A Christmas Temptation, and Book 2, A Cinderella Seduction. This series is about the Eden sisters, heiresses to a massive fortune, including Eden’s Department Store in NYC. These books have it all…drama (oh, the drama), intrigue, sexy times, and romance, all set against a very glamorous backdrop! I have to say that A Bet with Benefits might be my favorite of the three. (Shhh…don’t tell the others.) Mindy and Sam, my heroine and hero, were a difficult and uncooperative pair. Sam makes many appearances in the first two books and they’re not always good. It was fun to redeem him. As for Mindy, I relished the chance to show readers that she isn’t really a bitch, she just knows what she wants. She has a very tender side to her, as well. And honestly, she’s the glue that’s holding the Eden family together.
As for the final book in the series, A Christmas Rendezvous, I can’t really tell you who the heroine is since that will spoil one of the secrets in A Bet with Benefits. (Although you can probably maybe figure it out from the blurb…) All I can tell you is that it’s a wild ride and will wrap up the Eden family in a bright red Christmas bow! That one comes out November 1 and is available to preorder now. I hope you enjoy it as much as the first three books. This series has been a blast to write!

I’m extremely excited about this series, Dynasties: Secrets of the A-list, since it gave me the chance to collaborate with fellow Harlequin Desire authors Cat Schield, Reese Ryan, and Joss Wood.

Wishing, Book 5 in the Forever series, is out now! It’s a stand-alone novella, but if you read Bring Me Back and Back Forever, this is Samantha’s story, set 8 years later. You will want to read this story.
Here’s the blurb:
When Samantha Abby loses her magazine job and her musician boyfriend, she says goodbye to New York, her writing career, and guys with guitars. Back home, she discovers her parents have a houseguest—ridiculously-sexy-in-Chuck-Taylors rock star Duncan Hall. She doesn’t want to share her bathroom or her family with the exact kind of trouble that broke her heart. Plus, Duncan is brilliant. With her writing dream in a dumpster, spending time with a beautiful guy whose creativity earns countless accolades is just salt in the wound.
Duncan should be on top of the world, but after losing his best friend to drugs, success feels like a joke. Meanwhile, his parents express their continued disdain for his music and the film he made to cope. Samantha’s step-dad, Christopher Penman, is as close as Duncan gets to a father figure, and working with him on a new record is a dream-come-true. Duncan doesn’t want to lose out on this found family by getting romantic with Samantha, but she’s not only gorgeous and smart, she sees right through to his core. Duncan and Sam find themselves no longer wishing to disappear. But do they have the courage to let themselves be found?
