After tragedy struck, Sean Amory left his job as a record executive in L.A. to go back to his roots. Heโ€™s come home to River Hill to work in his familyโ€™s bakery while he decides what to do with his life. Somehow, the warm ovens and fresh dough are soothing to his raw edgesโ€”and the gorgeous woman he sees jogging past every morning as he opens up the shop has another effect entirely.

Jessica Casillas-Mooreโ€™s former life as a beauty queen led to her current gig as a lifestyle consultant for a dozen local TV stations, but it also means she hasnโ€™t eaten carbs since she was fourteen. But smelling them wonโ€™t ruin her career, so she makes a point to route her morning run past The Breadery, River Hillโ€™s most delicious site. When she meets the handsome baker, sparks fly … and cupcakes get frosted.

Opposites really do attract, and it turns out that Jess and Sean just might be made for each other. But when his past rears its ugly head and her future comes calling, theyโ€™ll have to figure out how much theyโ€™re ready to give in order to get what they most want.

Happy Release Day! THE DISTILLER’S DARLING Has Arrived!

The_Distiller's_Darling_SMALLWelcome back to River Hill! The second in the contemporary romance series I’ve co-written with my BFF Rebecca Norinne is available today, and I LOVE it. I hope you do, too. Come back to the adorable wine country town of River Hill with us, where the food is fabulous and the people are sexy! In THE DISTILLER’S DARLING, you’ll find out what happened to Noah’s date to the gala after he left her to go fall in love with Angelica in THE VINTNER’S VIXEN! Naomi Klein is a self-assured, fearless artist who doesn’t take any nonsense from anyone – but her family is the one exhausting, beloved thorn in her side. When she meets Iain Brennan, new in town and working hard to sell his family’s new whiskey, they’re both ready for a fling. But when it turns into something more, everyone gets involved!

The Mathematical Gambit is available now!

My life has been sheer chaos lately, but I’m happy to be able to surprise you, gentle readers, with a new release! That’s right. Miss Anastasia Galipp, the finest spy the Home Office has ever let loose in Mayfair, is back, with a new adventure and some new feelings to explore regarding her very handsome wizard partner, Simon Armistead. The Galipp Files, Book 2: The Mathematical Gambit, is available on most major ebook retailers for just 99 cents, and I’m excited for you to read it!

You’ll find the book’s description and buy links right here. (And if you missed the first book in the series, The Star of Anatolia, it’s right here! With a shiny new cover to celebrate!)

Captain’s Lady is Available Now!

900x600I’m so excited that CAPTAIN’S LADY is finally out in the world. Captain Jack Boone appeared in both THIEVES’ HONOR and WITCH’S STONE, and I had readers frequently email me to ask when he would get his own story. I wanted it, too! Secretly, he’s always been my favorite of the original Wizards of London trio. And who better to foil our roguish, charming, carefree Captain Boone than a lady who is so carefully organized that her lists are a wonder to behold, and who plans to take a place in the society that Jack is so uninterested in? I hope you’ll enjoy watching Jack and Kate make their way through sheer, unadulterated chaos as they navigate family drama and unexpected surprises at every turn to find real love.

You can buy CAPTAIN’S LADY on Amazon, or read it for free on Kindle Unlimited. You can also add it to your shelf on Goodreads! As always, if you want to post a review, I’m grateful! I’d love to hear from you if you read this book or any of my others – you can always reach out to me by email or on social media like Twitter or Facebook.

What’s next from me? Now that CAPTAIN’S LADY is out in the world, you can keep your eyes peeled for the next installment in Miss Anastasia Galipp‘s adventures in spycraft, magic, and romance! THE MATHEMATICAL GAMBIT is coming very soon! You can also look out for THE VINTNER’S VIXEN, my contemporary romance co-written with USA Today bestselling author Rebecca Norinne.

In the meantime, I’ll be getting my kids ready to start school in a couple of weeks, celebrating my birthday (!), and buckling down to write more! I can’t wait to see what’s next in my magical world!

WITCH’S STONE is here – and THIEVES’ HONOR is free!!

That’s right! Duncan and Fiona’s story is finally here! You can get WITCH’S STONE exclusively on Amazon, and read the story of the battle mage and the witch who has his heart. I’m so excited for you to read this one – I love everybody in this book, up to and including Duncan’s ancestral castle itself!

Today’s the Day! The Star of Anatolia is Out!

Happy release day, everyone! I’m excited to say that THE STAR OF ANATOLIA, a short novella in my Wizards of London world, is out today! I’m super excited about it. There’s lady spies, dangerous magic, a fabulous necklace, a handsome wizard, and of course, the Duchess of Edgebourne. Here’s the blurb:

star-of-anatolia-coverMeet Miss Anastasia Galipp. Debutante, know-it-all, and the Home Officeโ€™s secret weapon. She gathers gossip in the ballrooms of Mayfair, winnowing through to discover Societyโ€™s most unsavory secrets. But her position is a precarious one, and she needs to prove herself to be the spy she thinks she is once and for all. When sheโ€™s assigned a case that hits close to home, she thinks she sees her chance. But add in a wedding to stop, a new partner, some dangerous magic, and an unexpected duchess, and Anastasiaโ€™s life is suddenly more complicated than she ever imagined.


This is a quick read, and I hope you love it! I’m excited to keep writing about Anastasia – she’s my favorite heroine so far.

If you’re in the US, I hope you have a fantastic Thanksgiving weekend! Pick up THE STAR OF ANATOLIA during your food coma; it’ll liven things up a little. You can find buy links to all of the major ebook retailers here. Enjoy!

Release Day!

This is it! ‘Thieves’ Honor’ is officially available to the world! I’ve started to see a few people posting that it was auto-delivered to their devices (thanks for pre-ordering!!). It’s super exciting!

So exciting, in fact, that I’ve hired a babysitter and locked myself in the office to work all day! (Actually, I would have done that anyway, but I lucked out and release day happened to fall on a babysitter day.) So I’ll be all over social media today, and I’d love to hear from you if you read the book!



Save The Date! Thieves’ Honor is out on May 4th

I’m literally waiting for the babysitter to get here so that I can go see the new Star Wars movie, so it seems apropos to announce that my debut novella, Thieves’ Honor, is being released on Star Wars Day in 2016. That’s May 4th, for those of you who aren’t Jedi-inclined.

Of course, my book has literally nothing to do with Star Wars – but I feel like the fates are aligning anyway. Because Star Wars is great. And I think my book is pretty great. And I hope you will too. Mark your calendars!

With the release getting ever closer, you’ll see that this here website is in the process of getting a little bit of a re-design to make it look like a Real Live Author lives here, not just somebody who puts pictures of her children and food on the internet. (Don’t worry, I have no intention of changing my habits – I’m just adding a front page and a place for readers to find my books. There will still be a lot of ridiculous pictures of toddlers and cookies and things. I yam what I yam, y’all.)

You can also head over to my new author page on Facebook and hit the ‘like’ button – I hope you will. As always, I’m very present on Twitter and Instagram, too. More on ‘Thieves’ Honor’ will be posted pretty much everywhere as soon as I hear anything further from the publisher, I assure you.

Need a refresher on the book? Check out the back cover copy, posted on the Soul Mate Publishing author blog! I’m so excited for you all to meet Thomas and Em; they’ve lived in my head for years, in several incarnations.

And with that said, I left Thomas’ best friend with anย awfulย hangover and imminent guests, so until the babysitter gets here I’d better get back to his book!
