I just got back from the Romantic Times Booklovers Convention in Kansas City, where a snow storm hit just as the e-book Expo began. I want to thank all the readers who stopped by to say hello–I had a great time meeting you!
This week I’ll be attending the 2013 RT Booklovers’ Convention in Kansas City, MO. I’ll be signing at the RT E-book (also Indie Published and Graphic Novel) Expo on Thursday, May 2, from 4 to 6. I hope to see you there, but whether you’ll be attending or not, you can access my author page for the Expo using this QR code:
If you do plan to attend, don’t be shy about saying hello and hitting me up for my free swag, a microfiber cloth you can use to clean your computer screen, e-reader, and glasses.
What was a tufthunter, and whose tuft was he hunting? I’m at Romancing the Past today, discussing the social pecking order at Oxford University during the regency.
The Romanceaholic review site posted a review of Lord of Secrets today, calling it “Wonderfully, beautifully done.” To read the entire review, click here.
Also, congratulations to both winners of my giveaways. Veronika won the Carina Press blog giveaway, and Missy won the Ex Libris giveaway. Both received a gift card and a copy of Lord of Secrets. I hope both of you enjoy the story, ladies!

And to celebrate the release of my second regency romance, I’m guest-blogging today at Ex Libris. I’ll be giving away a free copy of the e-book edition of Lord of Secrets and a $10 Amazon gift certificate. You can click here to jump to the blog post.
Another early review–Lovey Dovey Books gives Lord of Secrets 5 doves out of 5. “The suspense of discovering David’s dark secrets make the romance that much sweeter, because through all the drama and emotional distress, readers will come to understand and truly care for these characters.”
Victoria Janssen of Heroes and Heartbreakers wrote a lovely, thoughtful “first look” review of Lord of Secrets, calling it “an absorbing read.”
Why the double standard? Today I’m at Romancing the Past, discussing the stigma associated during the 19th century with being a fallen woman.
