I'm a Brit, but I live in Canada, I write full time and I write steamy regency romances. I have a rescued maltese terrier called Teaser, a husband and two grown up daughters. (You can tell who comes first in our household, but then the Brits penchant for their animals is not a myth, but a well known truism.)
I love what I do.
I have written seven full length novels for the Harlequin Historical line so far. Number six, Lady Rosabella's Ruse, will be out in the new year. Here you have the cover for number five, More Than a Mistress
, July 2011. This is the second book in the Rakes in Disgrace Series. The first being The Gamekeeper's Lady. (The books are independent of each other, but it would be better to read them in order.)
This cover represents a scene in the book. And yes, he is helping her off with her stocking. The couple are engaged in a game of strip billiards. No more spoilers for today!
Deliciously Debauched by the Rake
It sounds odd, but this story, which is tied to The Gamekeeper's Lady by the thinnest wispiest of threads, wrote itself. This couple just wrote their own story. They let me hold the pen (or tap at the keyboard) but they just walked right on the page. No edits or revisions were required. I do wish that would happen more often
The next one is a Christmas story and more about that later.
Novels 8 and 9 are already in the works and I will be telling you about those as we go along.
So there you have me in a nutshell as it were. Tell me about you, or if you prefer ask me any question you like. Hmm, with regards to that, I find that women always want to know where I get the inspiration for the stories and the characters. Whereas men, bless their little brains (the one in their pants) always want to know who gives me the inspiration for the sex. I have lots of fun with that one and a few stories to tell which I will save for another time.
