    Blooming Monday!

    Happy Monday! I’m hoping you had a lovely weekend. I sure did. It was a proud one as I saw my DD receive her Associates degree in liberal arts this weekend. This is what I hope is her first higher learning degree as she is going right onto continue her studies for her bachelors next semester. It was blooming smiles all around even if it was a tad drizzly. Nothing could dampen our spirits.


    And speaking of good spirits… we have a winner in my Get Ready For Seduction Giveaway! The lucky winner is… Vanessa N! Thanks Vanessa and thanks so much to you all who entered. And please remember that Seduction’s Canvas will be out on May 27th and you can pre-order it now. You can also get an exclusive sneak peek over at Heroes and Heartbreakers right now.

    A Seduction…

    Wow, it’s getting pretty real around here. So I’m not just published, but soon to be multi-published as my DH reminded me the other night. Eep! I have to say that the whole idea totally boggles this little mind of mine as I still find it hard that anyone even thinks of me a writer, you know, like for real realz. But that said, here it is, live and in color, the cover of my May 27th release Seduction’s Canvas. I hope you love it as much as I do. I think that Crimson did a fantastic job of capturing the strength and sensuality of my hero, Mark Thorn and the obvious, Vin Diesel factor I was going for when describing him. I just can’t stop looking.


    Seduction's Canvas cover 5-6

    “I want to paint you” Artist Samara Leighton had wanted to say those words to the sexy motorcycle rider who lived in the building ever since she first laid eyes on him nearly a year ago. But now that the words were out she couldn’t stop her heart from beating wildly in her chest.
    “Honey, you don’t have enough paint to cover me.” Security specialist Mark Thorn didn’t mean to come off as a hard ass. As a matter of fact, he wanted nothing more than to let the tempting artist from across the hall do whatever she wanted to him and then some. But her haughty demeanor left the normally cool rider off his game.
    Samara knew this was her only chance to live out her long-standing fantasy and she wasn’t going to let it slip through her fingers. She had very little time before her show was done and the pressure of her family legacy meant she would finally go through with living out her life under the umbrella of the Leighton name and its responsibilities. There would be no more downtown jaunts, lazy museum afternoons, and evenings spent lost in the magic of color and her canvases. And definitely no time spent holding tight to the muscular form of her dark rider while the horrors of her past and her cares drifted further away with each mile of road they covered.

    You can pre-order Seduction’s Canvas at Amazon or iTunes now.

    The One

    Happy Hump Day! Here is a picture of One World Trade Center that I took on Monday. Doesn’t it look fantastic? Not yet complete but almost there with its spire now hoisted up, bringing it to 1,776 feet and making it the tallest building in the Western hemisphere (sidebar: isn’t perspective a funny thing? It sure doesn’t look all that tall here does it? or I could just be thinking like a New Yorker).

    This part of Manhattan is very much another character in my 2nd book; Seduction’s Canvas as it’s my hero and heroine, Mark and Samara’s neighborhood.  I can’t wait to share their world and their love story with you in just a few weeks. You can pre-order your copy here now.

    Gosh, I love New York!

    This month be all you could ever wish for….

    May 1


    It’s going to be a busy one for me. I have my next book Seduction’s Canvas coming out on May 27th so I’m preparing for that. And it’s already up for preorders so if you’d like you can get in on the party early you can here. Whee!

    Not to mention the end of the school year is coming up too, so super busy times ahead with that. And then I have more writing surprises percolating on top of my October due conclusion to my Creative Hearts series. Yes, busy times for sure. But I do plan to take a moment to smell the roses this month and I hope you do too. Tell me what do you have going on this month? Any flower sniffing in your future?


    All the best,

    Thrilling Thursday!

    Howdy folks! It’s been quite the week and flying by too. We had a quickie snowstorm and then Spring sprung with more freezing temperatures and not a fine how do you do. Side-eye to that.

    I continued on my World tour thanks so much to all of you following me, it’s so appreciated. I have another stop today over at Long and Short Reviews so please stop by there for another chance to win. And on top of all of that, with the week not even over, yesterday I got my edits for book 2 so it will be a busy next couple of weeks for me in the writing cave (note to self: get provisions ie: chocolate).

    And then finally to top things off with the best news, I got my official release date and title for book 2! So that said… wait for it… Book 2 in my Creative Heart series will be out May 27th and called…

    BTW, Don’t you just love this pic of Edie Sedwick and Andy Warhol marrying Fashion and art?
