My gateway romance was Indigo Nights by Olivia O'Neill http://www.amazon.com/Indigo-Nights-Olivia-ONeill/dp/0425036294 I sneak-bought it from the used book store down the street and read it in secret, where my literary-snob mother wouldn't see. After years of gazing at those alluring covers in the grocery store, I finally got to read a romance novel and it was EVERYTHING my lustful adolescent heart desired! Of course, it was terribly (and literally) rapetastic and I LOVED it. I even reacquired it a few years ago, though I could not get through a reread.

Amen on the community aspect. I read romances furtively and in secret for so many years that it was a revelation to discover other women out there who read and loved them, too. That includes all of you. sniff

Yes! Loved the adventure, the exotic glamor of it all. And the whole trapped-in-a-seraglio fantasy still rocks my world. It's hard to find the balance that didn't matter as much in those old skool days, alas,

My mom and I still go around about it. I made her read Linda Howard's Son of the Morning and Nora's Daring to Dream. She reads my erotic romances, too, but can't get through the fantasies. But has she come around and embraced the love? No. I think she'd be delighted if I went back to writing creative nonfiction or - better! - lit fic. Something she could brag about. Alas!

Since we moved into our house three years ago, my writing space has been a desk in the hallway, just outside the bathroom/kid's bedrooms. It worked because I didn't think we had any other options. For my 40th birthday this ye...

You Know You Want It!

One of the great things about living where I do – in Santa Fe, New Mexico – is all the fabulous and fun arts. Including these wonderful Talavera Jack O’Lanterns. Talavera is this particular style of ceramic glaze, introduced to Mexico by the Spanish Moors. It’s one of my favorite styles and the first time I saw a Talavera Jack O’Lantern, I snapped it up. And bought one for my mother, too.
This year, I decided to buy one for you guys.
I’m giving it away to one of my newsletter subscribers. (Okay, yes – this isn’t ENTIRELY selfless on my part.) The first newsletter goes out this Friday, October 31. Sign up by Thursday, October 30, Midnight Eastern Time, and you’ll be automatically entered in the drawing! The sign-up form is on the right hand side of my home page. This newsletter will also contain a free prequel story to The Twelve Kingdoms, previously only available in an anthology.
BETTER THAN CANDY CORN.
(Okay, for those of you who hate candy corn, that’s not saying much, but you get the concept.)
Also, only a few days remain to get a free copy of The Tears of the Rose from my fabulous publisher via Goodreads. That giveaway ends October 30, also. So many things drawing to a close as the Veil thins…

Celebrating the release of Rogue's Paradise, third book in the Covenant of Thorns trilogy!
Find Rogue’s Paradise at all your favorite e-tailers!

Amazon / Barnes & Noble / Books-A-Million / Carina Press / Goodreads / Google Play / iTunes

Pregnant, possessed, and in love with a man I don’t dare to trust-those are the consequences of the risks I took to save my life. But Faerie, the land of blood and magic, is filled with bitter ironies, and the bargains I made now threaten me and my unborn child.
The darkly sensual fae noble Rogue still tempts me to danger and desire. As we await the birth of our child, I’ve been forced to question whether our offspring is part of a bargain Rogue once made to save himself. He can’t tell me the truth due to a spell the vicious Queen Titania has him under. Would he betray our family against his will? Could I ever forgive him if he does?
Rogue insists on an eternal commitment from me, even as Titania’s forces close in on us. I don’t know if Rogue and I can withstand her onslaught, or that of the beast within me. But I will not stop looking for answers-even if it brings the walls of Faerie crashing down.
