I am currently working on Forever Dante, though it’s going slowly mainly because my husband and I are moving. The minute it’s completed, I’ll upload it! In the meantime, I have the first three books in the Wacky Women Series available in print. As soon as I’ve completed Forever Dante, I’ll be finalizing Once Upon a Jinx and Once Upon an Enchantment. Thank you so much for your patience and understanding during this difficult time.
Delay in Releases
Monday, December 9, 2013
Thank you to everyone for your patience following the death of my mom. I truly appreciate it, as well as the many sympathetic emails I’ve received. I’ve just started writing again and hope to have the promised books out as quickly as possible. I expect to have releases starting the end of February. I will start announcing release dates as soon as I have them. I’m also facing a move over the next few months, which adds to the complications. But as soon as I’m situated again, I hope to return to a schedule that provides a release each month for six straight months!
Friday, November 1, 2013
Due to the serious illness and subsequent death of my mother, the next few titles will be delayed. I do apologize, but hope you’ll all bear with me during this difficult time.
I will give priority to Forever Dante and get that book out as soon as possible. Once Upon a Jinx and Once Upon an Enchantment will follow. I anticipate a one month delay for these three titles. Please continue to check here for scheduling updates.
Again, thank you for your patience and understanding.
Primo and Nonna’s Love Story!
NOTE: This title was originally scheduled for an October 18 release. But it came together very quickly and is now available!
Many readers of The Dante Legacy have written to tell me how much they love the Dantes and the various secondary characters featured along the way, particularly the family patriarch and matriarch. So, I thought I’d offer a surprise treat—the romance of Romero Dante and Julietta Bianchi, known to readers as Primo and Nonna.
This 33,000 word novella takes place in the small, fictitious village of Santa Lucia located among the grapevines of Tuscany, Italy. Though events unfold in the mid-50s out of necessity—after all, Primo and Nonna are in their late 70s when they appear in the Dante saga—this tale is the type of timeless love story that could happen in any decade.
So, meet Romero Dante, a man destined to become an internationally famous jeweler, and owner of the only mines in the world to possess fire diamonds. And meet Julietta, the woman who sparks The Inferno, that all-consuming, once-in-a-lifetime passion that occurs when Dante soul mates first join hands. Their road to happily-ever-after isn’t an easy one. Not when Julietta is engaged to Romero’s best friend. And not when Romero is the town bastard, the bad boy who good girls should avoid at all costs…
Also Available Now!
This is the first in The Sinful Secrets Series, a group of four books which will be released over the next nine months.
Leah Hampton, needs a husband, and fast, if she’s to save her Texas ranch. So, she advertises for the “perfect” man to help her out of her predicament. Instead she gets Hunter Pryde, who kisses like sin, but is keeping a secret that could bring salvation…or utter ruin. Hunter wants Leah—and her ranch—and she’s not sure in what order. Years ago her father forced Hunter off their ranch at the hurting end of a shotgun after he had the unmitigated gall to sleep with the boss’s daughter. Now Hunter’s going to have it all… Leah, her ranch, and the sweetest revenge of all—Leah in his bed.
This book is available in print!
Friday, September 27: Who’s Holding the Baby?
This is the first book in The Salvatore Brothers Series, a group of six stories. Though the first book is a reprint–updated, expanded,and revised–I will be writing brand new books for each of the five brothers for this series!
Get out your scorecards in order to keep all the lies straight in this charming story of disguises, mistaken identities, and madcap craziness.
Who’s Holding the Baby?
The promised releases for the end of 2013 have been delayed due to the death of my mom. These have been rescheduled for release in early 2014. Please continue to check my website for new release dates. Thank you so much for your understanding and patience.
