Love Unexpected is released today! Don’t miss this story of simmering attraction and deadly danger:

When the widowed Lady Marianne Deveridge is invited to spend the season in London with her friend Lady Penelope Wellingham, she has no idea that Penny and Beau have another guest: Captain Ernest Saunders, Beau’s brother. Matchmaking is definitely afoot. However, after having been married to wandering explorer, Marianne has no intention of becoming involved with a wandering sea captain.

Her first sight of Captain Saunders in all his robust masculinity brings every one of her senses to attention. She knows then that her resolve will be difficult to keep.

Almost immediately upon making the captain’s acquaintance, Marianne becomes the focus of a mysterious villain who is devising a horse racing fraud. What has she seen to endanger a deadly felon? She has no idea.

Captain Saunders makes it his business to keep Marianne safe, and the two of them are brought closer by their investigation into the dark side of horse racing. Still, she thinks she is managing to resist his charms.

It is not until her very survival is at stake that she realizes how interwoven their lives have become. Will her heart ever recover once she watches another ship put out to sea?

I also have some interesting news. I am going to take a break from Regencies for awhile to  write a series of romantic suspense novels. Those who have been reading my most recent Regencies will not be surprised

, as I have been leaning in this direction for some time now with my plots! The new books will be contemporary, but still clean. The common thread will probably prove to be fictional Chicago TV station WOOT. I will most likely be releasing the first two books this summer.


Henry (4) has been teaching me to play “Bird Bingo.” It is a delightful game and has the side effect of teaching the players to recognize a worldwide selection of birds. The art is worthy of the Audabon Society. His mom

, Jessi, found it on Amazon.

I have been teaching Henry “Red Light-Green Light and “Nana May I,” games from my distant childhood. We are excited for warmer spring weather so we can go to the park.

We look forward to the beginning of summer when we will visit our California grandchildren. Jack (12) just won the “best of county” with his science project, so will now go on to state. Astrid (3) continues her outrageous outfits, now augmented with her first pair of sunglasses and a giant sunflower for her hair. She recently gave Nevie (1 1/2 ) a spontaneous bath in the kitchen sink with tons of dish soap. Her much-tried mother was upstairs at the time.


What could be more fun than Opening Day of Cub’s baseball? And having them win? I am even wearing my World Series Champion shirt as I write this.

I recently visited with fellow author Heather B. Moore and learned about her new contemporary romance series set in the fictional town of Pine Valley. I am reading the first one and loving it. It’s called Worth the Risk and you can find it HERE.
