Hey there, Max Pack—

Here they are! The covers for my upcoming releases.

Marrying The Duke new seriesThe first book of my “Marrying the Duke” series is right around the corner! Avon will release A LITTLE THING CALLED LOVE as an e-book September 22. This is a prequel to the series. (I know, I know, it all gets confusing.)

This series introduces you to Fyclan Morris, born poor and Irish, who has been promised that his children’s children will be noble and wealthy. That is a tall order in Regency England although many an enterprising lad achieved exactly that sort of fame. In MATCH OF THE CENTURY, his daughter is to marry the powerful Duke of Baynton. Prophecy fulfilled, right?

Of course not! Life is never that easy, especially when love is involved. The “Marrying the Duke” series will cover the intertwining fortunes of the Morris and Whitridge families. They are bold, adventurous, and not afraid to love with all of their beings.

I’ll be on the road this fall:

Look for me at the Storymakers Midwest Writers Conference October 9-10 in my beloved Kansas City. If you are interested in writing, this will be a good place to be. I’ll post more info as I receive it.

I’ll be at KISSCON/Memphis! I was born in Memphis and I like the city. KISSCON is Avon Books celebration of readers and writers. We sweep into Memphis November 21st with tasty goodies and loads of books. More details will be coming.

All my best,
