So I’m taking a shower and Minerva, my black cat, comes into the bathroom and sits down. She announces her presence with a single meow and begins staring. Creepy, yes, but this is my cat, so go figure. I go through all my usual shower steps: facial scrub, shampoo, conditioner, satsuma-scented shower gel on my lovely new scrubber. The cat continues to stare. Then, very deliberately, she turns and begins licking herself at the base of her tail. She looks back at me with clear disdain, and that’s when I realize she’s judging me. Me and my lovely bath products with my scented lathers and my complicated process of cleansing myself. With one lick, she has dissed, not just me, but the entire human race.
Again.

The sun has found me. Again. Insidious beast. Why must you torment me?

Haven’t read Grace yet? Now’s the perfect time : ) You can get Grace in Kindle edition for $1.99 as part of their Summer Romance Event. I’m so excited to be part of this promotion, and hope you’ll take advantage of more of the 200 titles available at this amazing price.

Heroes & Heartbreakers Guest Blog Post

You might say I know a little something about sisters. I have two of them. I wrote four books about a set of them. But I didn’t really know much about famous sisters until I was asked to write a guest blog post for Heroes & Heartbreakers. It was a fun bit of research : ) You can check it out here: We Are Family: Sisters in History from the Brontës, the Jeromes, and More.

Charity in Turkish

When my books are published in other countries, they often get a little makeover, and I absolutely love seeing the different interpretations.

what dreams may come – (on the release of Mercy)

I’m pretty choked up as I write this post. So typos be damned, etc. Also, it’s almost 3am (not that me being awake at this hour is at all unusual.)

The final book in my Virtue series is available today, and I am so profoundly moved and grateful that I almost don’t know what to do with myself. It’s been a journey, to be sure.

Some of you have known me since childhood, and you know that my world…

Just a few more days!

Little sneak peek while my editor and I are putting the final touches on Mercy. Thanks to all of you for sticking with me : )

“Bloody hell!”

The curse, followed by a loud thud, echoed from the second-floor entrance to the empty Caldwell ballroom, filtered down the stairs and across the marble foyer to the sitting room where four of the Ackerly sisters were gathered. They exchanged glances.

“So…
