I’m the Featured Romance Author at Barnes and Noble this month and to celebrate I’m giving away my romance picks on my website contest. Enter t win all eleven books!
The first scene excerpt of my November release, Scandalous Desires is up! If you’ve been waiting for Silence Hollingbrook’s story, this is it–and she does indeed get another shot at Charming Mickey O’Connor.
I’m in Los Angeles for the Romantic Times Convention from April 6-10. If you’re going to the convention, I hope you’ll stop by to say hi, and if you live in Los Angeles be sure and attend the Giant Book Fair on Saturday, April 9th from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

I spent last weekend putting together four raised vegetable beds made from cedar wood, although I’ve only filled one so far with soil. We planted tomatoes–yellow pear and brandywine–and carrots and multi-colored swiss chard. And then it rained the rest of the weekend and early this week and the entire backyard flooded! I’m so glad I decided on raised beds.
There’s only a little over a month left until the release of Wicked Intentions, the first book in my Maiden Lane series. I’ve posted the video for Wicked Intentions, along with a new research article, St. Giles and the Gin Craze on the Extras page. I’m giving away my very last arc of Wicked Intentions in my website contest along with a gift card for Barnes and Noble bookstores. Finally, for a limited time only I’ll be giving away a free first chapter excerpt booklet for Wicked Intentions–simply go to my contact page and order one.

So it’s three days before Halloween and once again the Hoyt Household has eaten all the candy I bought to give out to cute kids in costumes. Sigh. I’m going to have to go to the store to buy more candy and there won’t be anything left but those icky peanut butter chew things in black and orange waxpaper wrappers. (I used to try and trade them to my younger brother for Snickers bars. He never fell for it.) Poor cute kids in costumes!
In other news To Desire a Devil should be in your local bookstore or big box store now (Target, Meijer, Wal-MArt, etc.) Yay! On my website you can:
And finally, I’ll be doing a blog tour for the release of TDAD all during November. You can check to see where I’ll be on my Blogging schedule on the left hand side of this page (scroll down!) Today I’m at The Good, the Bad, and the Unread and we’ll be giving away a signed copy of TDAD.
Hope to see you there!

I’m back home after two weeks in beautiful D.C., first at the RWA national conference and then spending some time in our nation’s capital. I had a wonderful time at the National Art Gallery, dragging my Offspring to see Rembrandts and Vermeers and lecturing them about Boobies Through History. (They were suitably embarrassed.)
The Untrained Dogs had a vacation of their own (although they may not have seen it that way) at their doggie kennel. I think they’re glad to be home, though, and back to their ultra-soft dog beds.
Chapter 7 of The Ice Princess is up, but be warned: this chapter is for adult eyes only! Please do not read this chapter if you are under eighteen years of age.
I’ve posted the third scene excerpt of Chapter 1 from To Desire a Devil. This scene was not included in the excerpt at the back of To Beguile a Beast. I hope you enjoy it!
And I’m giving away my very last arc (advance reader copy) of To Desire a Devil in my website contest. Enter now for a chance to be the first of your friends to read To Desire a Devil!
