New Release and Blog Tour

Viscount's Wager, the 3rd book in the Gambling on Love series, is now available!
You never forget your first love, but is a second chance worth the gamble?

Anthony, Viscount Rawling, knows exactly what he wants in life and he isn't above having a look about London for it. When he spots recently widowed Gabriel Tilden at a ton function, he thinks he might have found love…again.

Gabriel is as gorgeous and reserved as he was when he broke Anthony's heart seven years ago. But they were only adolescents then…surely Anthony won't hold the incident against him. And especially not when the attraction between them is stronger than ever.

Gabriel came to London in search of distraction, and a teasing Anthony is impossible to resist. As Anthony introduces Gabriel to the pleasures that can be found in the city—and in his bedchamber—their bond deepens into something more. Yet both men are hiding secrets that could pull them apart forever…

Check out the book's page on my website for an assortment of buy links and an excerpt from chapter 1.

Viscount’s Wager and Other News

First up, I’ve got news on Viscount’s Wager, book #3 in the Gambling on Love series, which is Rawling’s story. It’s around 100,000 words, and will be my longest book yet. The release date has been set – August 10, 2015 – and it’s available for pre-order at all the usual retailers. I also have the cover art and the blurb. I love that the guys are kissing on the cover.

Brook Street: Rogues will be available in a Japanese language edition published by Harlequin, in both print and for Kindle, on May 25, 2015. I won’t be able to read a word of the book, but I am completely in love with the cover.
It even has a step back cover…well it’s more of a wrap-around cover, as the cover art will wrap around to the back of the book (Japanese language books open to the right, versus the left for English language books). 
*swoon* I need to find a way to get that made into a poster to hang in my office.

In other news, His Client will be available in audio from Audible in about 3 months. I’ll post when it’s available. And it will be available in a French language edition sometime later this year.

I’d mentioned a few months ago that I was planning to write a novella for Sam from Brook Street: Thief later this year. Well, I now have a title to share – To Kiss a Thief – and it will feature Sam Fox and Pascal Linden. And can I say, I love the name Pascal. So glad I can finally use it, and it totally fits Sam’s curious genius of a hero. 

Last but certainly not least, I’ve started working on Convincing the Secretary, the 3rd book in the London Legal series. The current tentative release date is March 2016. 

And that's all for me right now. I hope everyone has a great weekend!

His Client

His Client is now available again! And it has a gorgeous new book trailer



The book has a beautiful new cover, some minor edits, and a new lower price. This second edition is not substantially different from the original. Even though I did some little edits, I doubt anyone would notice them. If you've already read the original, then just admire the pretty new cover and you won't be missing anything if you don't buy the second edition.

Love wasn't supposed to be part of the bargain…

On every visit to Madame Delacroix’s brothel, Nathaniel Travers requests the same man. Stunningly handsome and highly skilled, Jasper not only shares Nate’s fondness for wickedly erotic games and black leather corsets, but he has become a trusted confidant. And Jasper’s the only person who knows Nate longs for a committed relationship with his childhood friend, Peter Edmonton.

Unrequited love hurts, but it hurts even more when the object of affection is in love with another. Jasper Reed has been working at Delacroix’s for a decade. He’s saved enough to retire, yet he remains at the decadent London brothel. Leaving would mean leaving Nate and the hope someday the rugged gentleman would stop pining for his best friend and realize he loves Jasper, just as Jasper loves him.

Edmonton’s impending marriage looms before them, causing Jasper to take another look at his stubborn heart. Yet Jasper’s a bastard whore, and Nate’s the nephew of a viscount. Surely there can’t be any hope for them… 

Note: This is a previously published work. This second edition has been edited with minor changes. For readers who purchased the original edition, this second edition is not substantially different.

The book will be available in audio format sometime later this year, and there will also be a French language version, though not sure yet when that will be available. 

And if you are interested in reading more about Nate and Jasper, there's a free short story sequel, His Request, available at most retailers.
