Today, the limelight falls on a new book from Australian romance author, Faye Hall. Her latest release, Deceit and Devotion, like all her previous romance novels, is set in her Australian homeland. This new story is a tale not only of forbidden love, but of a dangerous deception. The hero, a young Aboriginal man, is hired by a cattle rancher to seduce his wife by an arranged marriage. The greedy rancher intends to use the affair as an excuse to take total control of his wife’s valuable property. Unaware of her husband’s actions and miserable in her marriage, the young wife hires the hero to help her to find grounds for a divorce. As attraction flares between them, how can this forbidden love, hedged round by danger, possibly come to a happy ending?

The publisher of my debut Regency romance, Deflowering Daisy, is going out of business and will soon be shutting down all operations. They have begun withdrawing all of their books for sale, in both print and eBook formats, from all web sites.
I have not yet decided whether or not I will seek other publishing options once the rights to my book are returned to me. Therefore, if you were considering buying the book and have not yet done so, I suggest that you do not procrastinate any longer. I understand both formats of Deflowering Daisy will become unavailable within the next few weeks.
My deepest gratitude to all of you who did buy a copy of my book!
Zoë Mullins has just released her newest novel, Tempting Sophie. It is a very steamy contemporary romance in which the love life of the heroine, Sophie, has become rather tangled as she battles cancer. How will she sort things out between the two important men in her life?

I am very pleased to put Faye Hall’s brand new historical romance novel, Shrouded Passions, in the limelight today. Faye lives in the land down-under and she sets her passionate romances in her homeland of Australia. This new book is a second time around story with a dangerous twist. The heroine, whom the hero believes to be dead, has returned to the scene of her attempted murder some years later in order to find the killer who tried to snuff out her life. As the danger mounts, will she finally reveal herself to the hero, a man to whom she is still powerfully attracted?

I am very pleased today to feature debut romance author, Mandi Benet. Earlier this month, Mandi released her first romance novel, a contemporary love story set, as you can guess from the title, in the Eternal City, Rome. Her debut novel, To Rome With Love, is the first in a series entitled Love in the City. Mandi’s heroine is a talented chef who pays a visit to Rome while on the rebound. There she encounters a handsome, irresistible Italian, and despite the fact she has sworn off men, particularly those of the Italian variety, sparks fly. Will those sparks explode into true love?
Please welcome Mandi Benet . . .
Recently, I read an article at the Publishers Weekly blog which reviewed the ups and downs in the categories of books sold in 2015. What was most surprising to me was the powerful impact which coloring books had on book sales last year. Several of my friends have taken up coloring and I must admit I am also considering joining in the fun. But I had no idea how widespread the interest in coloring books is among adults.
Which got me thinking, how cool would it be to have coloring books based on our favorite romance novels? My guess would be that coloring books based on the novels of Jane Austen would do quite well, since so many people love her books, and the look of the Regency. Of course, I think coloring books with scenes from the novels of Georgette Heyer would also sell very well. I certainly would buy any which were published. What do you think about the idea of romance coloring books?
Yesterday, I was honored to be the guest of romance author, Dena Garson, at her blog. Dena is an author after my own heart who enjoys very naughty romance novels. Since my debut novel, Deflowering Daisy, falls into that category, I felt most welcome. Dena posed some questions in her interview which I had not encountered before, which made the interview fun for me.
Please feel free to pop over to Dena’s blog if you would like to read my interview with her. Perhaps you will learn something new about me and Daisy, too.
