What could be more romantic in the month of romance than a visit to beautiful, sunny Italy? How about a vicarious journey with a determined lady and the rake who wins her heart? Product of a misalliance between a Society lady and an Italian musician, Allegra Antinori yearns to return to the land of her father’s birth after her dreams of wedding her childhood love and proper Society gentleman are smashed. With an estate in ruins, beguiling rogue Will Tavener needs to charm a wealthy bride. With them set on opposing aims, why do Will and Allegra find it so difficult to resist the attraction that keeps drawing them together? For a chance to win ROGUE’S LADY, enter at

One of my favorite things when I stop to catch my breath is to browse through overseas websites to check if any of my books have been released in foreign editions. I indulged myself a few days ago and discovered that one of my favorite books, A PROPER WIFE, came out in Italy in February with my favorite cover, a full-length portrait of the hero Sinjin in uniform (which was the inside cover of the North America release.) Then I found out that my October 2009 release, FROM WAIF TO GENTLEMAN’S WIFE, will be out in the UK in July, and a large-print edition of THE COURTESAN will be out there in August.

There’s also a new release in Norway of ROGUE’S LADY. When this volume was released in the UK, they changed the heroine’s dress from blue to green; the Norwegians changed it back to blue. I have to admit I’m partial to the blue. Also, the NA cover showed the heroine’s figure up to just above her lips; the UK and Norwegian covers both show her full face.

Aren’t covers fascinating?

BTW, why, do you ask, must I search to see what books I have out? All the Harlequin international offices are independent, so there isn’t a central coordinating spot that notifies authors when one of their books is going to be released in a different country. We don’t find out unless/until a fan in the issuing country lets us know, or we get a box of author copies in the mail, or the book shows up on a royalty statement. One would think in this era of computers that some such central notification forum could be set up. But then I wouldn’t discover Christmas in April.

Out Now for UK Readers, Rogue’s Lady

Friday, March 6th, 2009

Rogue’s Lady, showing Allegra full-face and in a green dress, is now on the shelves in the UK. Please check the UK Readers Page for more details of this release–and don’t forget, the extra chapter posted on the Rogue’s Lady bookshelf page!

“The Rogue Entices” added to the Bookshelf page for ROGUE’S LADY!

Wednesday, March 4th, 2009

In honor of the March UK release of ROGUE’S LADY, I’ve added to the ROGUE’S LADY bookshelf an “extra” chapter written for the now-defunct Amazon Short program. Entitled “The Rogue Entices,” this episode, available for the first time, takes Will and Allegra on a visit to Astley’s Amphitheatre, a famous entertainment venue founded by a former cavalry man that featured dazzling displays of equestrian skill. While Will and Allegra watch the horsemanship under the eye of Allegra’s chaperone, both try to ignore the budding friendship that enhances their physical attraction and remind themselves they each need to concentrate on trying to make respectable marriages—to someone else. Enjoy!
