Jackson Book #4 – Nash’s Story (He's No Angel)
Readers keep asking when I’m going to write a big book. It’s a question to make me wince, particularly given my love for writing short. But this story, with Brunswick Bay and so many characters already in place, with Jackson Nash who has such a strong desire to protect what’s his, this story might just be the one. For those who are curious, yes, I’m throwing him Gemma’s way. She simultaneously brings out his protective streak and scares him stupid because he doesn’t want to let her, or her little boys, down. I often circle this story for days before diving in–mainly because being inside this one hurts. You know that Hemmingway saying? “There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.” Yeah. That’s the one.
Four Kings - Four connected 'Royal' books for Harlequin Presents.
Never attempt to write story pitches while playing poker. That is all.
More seriously, I’ve signed up to write four entitled alpha heroes who don’t like hearing no for an answer. This is my first time writing to ‘Presents Proper’ editorial, never mind that my earlier stories have occasionally appeared in the lineup.
Love, lust, intrigue, scandal and power. They played together as children and cemented their loyalty to each other in their teens. Four kings–bound by a single vision–they’re about to change the world.
Casimir of Byzenmaach is the last of the four to ascend the throne. With him in place, plans for regional infrastructure can begin and all four sovereign states will benefit. Strategic marriages will ensure even closer ties and duty will be served. The four kings have it all planned. There’s just one small, insignificant problem.
No one asked the women involved what their plans were…
The Big Book Trilogy
Three sisters. Australian set contemporary romance. A marketing nightmare, internationally speaking. A risky proposition. I get to it between other projects–and it’s been shelved for 2016.
Montana Bull Riders
A story for Tule publishing, due early 2017. Because road tripping (with fabulous author pals) from Flathead Lake, Montana to Deadwood, South Dakota to watch PBR cowboys and bulls do their thing is downright inspiring.
