Good Monday Everyone!
I hope you had a good weekend. The weather is still steamy here but I have hope for relief soon. My mom said someone predicted that October will be as hot as August. I refuse to believe that prediction. It just can be true! LOL Hubby thinks it's funny that I'm complaining about the heat because I'm usually reveling in it. But enough's enough. Right?
So many good things happened last week that I want to share with you. First, I was so thrilled and honored that SWEET JUSTICE won the KOD chapter's Daphne contest for Best Single Title Romantic Suspense! I was thrilled to final and be among some of my favorite authors, but to win? Wow, I'm just over the moon! So happy for Seth, Honor and the whole LCR gang!
Also I received the back cover copy for MIDNIGHT SECRETS. Here it is, let me know what you think!
AT THE STROKE OF MIDNIGHT, THE HEAT BEGINS
a hot southern night, with a storm on the horizon, a family is
shattered. Three beautiful daughters—Savannah, Samantha, and Sabrina
Wilde—go on with their lives, each significantly changed, as they bear
the memory of the murder-suicide that killed their parents. For years,
they have stayed away from Midnight, Alabama. Until Midnight calls them
Savannah is the first one back, when a grueling
case in Nashville leads the young prosecutor to seek shelter in the
quiet of the once grand Wilde mansion. But when she finds letters
casting doubt on her family’s dark, shameful past, she realizes that
peace in Midnight is a shallow façade and sinister secrets lurk beneath
the surface. Zach Tanner, once the town’s bad boy, is now the new
police chief and still has a wild hold over her. Zach can feel it, too,
but he hurt Savannah once. As teenagers, they broke every rule
together. Now it’s his job to keep her safe, even though he isn’t sure
who her enemies are, or which ones might be his own. All he knows is
that they have only each other to face dangers they can’t see coming.
And to make things even more cheery, both MIDNIGHT LIES and CHANCES ARE are coming along nicely. I'm only in the early stages of MIDNIGHT LIES, by my hero and heroine, Quinn Braddock and Samantha Wilde, are experiencing some major angst already. Love it! (:
Also, in CHANCES ARE, not only did we decide to return to a London setting for the story, Jake Mallory and Angela Delvecchio are heating up the pages. And I love that several LCR operatives have made an appearance. So far, I've seen Noah, Eden, Jordan, Ethan, Shea and Aidan. Oh, and Sabrina Fox, who you met briefly in SWEET REVENGE, is involved too. In fact, she's given me some signals that she's wanting her own story. Yay!
As you know, the RWA National Convention was last week and I'm so glad I was busy since I was in serious envy and major regret for not going. Saturday night was the Rita and Golden Heart ceremony, which is like the Academy Awards for romance writers. Here's a link to the list of winners. The first names on the list are the Golden Heart winners, which are some of the future stars of the romance genre. Scroll down to the Rita award winners and get some fabulous recommendations! http://www.rwa.org/cs/2012RITAGH
Okay, that's it for me. I'm headed back to Midnight, Alabama for a few hours and then will fly to London for a quickie. (:
Hope you all have a marvelous Monday. Can't wait to hear your recommendations!
