A Wonderful Announcement

I'm very exited to be able to announce to everyone the latest tidbit of news. I've been working with eTreasures Publishing for a while now. We've made some great strides and come out with some amazing books.

Now, its with great pride and excitement that I announce the fruitition of a brain-child of mine. Many of the larger houses have category lines and  now we do as well. Starting May 9, 2011 we'll be releasing the first of our 'themed' novellas.

Spring is in the air and we're celebrating the romance of history as well as the season with Sweethearts in Bloom. On May 9, Joy Brooks will join me in celebrating the release of her novella, Coming Home.

While Europe faces the ensuing Battle of Waterloo, Gabrielle Anderson travels to her brother’s best friend’s estate. Lord Marshall Hampton opens his home to her but Gabriel also wants his love. Gabrielle is determined to show him how she feels, but her time is shortened when Marshall is summoned to the war front. Will Gabrielle win the heart of the only man she has ever loved?

Congratulations on the upcoming release


Kari thinks a weight loss spell is worth a try. Unfortunately, the spell is a trick that unleashes a centuries old famine demon.

Fallen Guardian Angel Rahmiel once defeated the demon and was bound so he could fight it if it ever descended to the earth again. But there is the little problem of his imprisonment in an ice prison. What he needs is a bonding ceremony with a human woman--like Kari.

Also Announcing A Contest! Check my blog on April 4
