New Cover and Title for an old favorite.

Image
Seducing His Senator is getting a make over.  New title and cover.  I had my reasons, and let's just say that the title was turning people off. It seemed to suggest a political romance rather than what it truly is, which is a steamy contemporary.  So that being the case, Solstice Publishing and I are giving it a fresh look and title.  

  So here it is,  I love this couple as they are much like the couple on the old cover.  Here's Protecting Arizona.  I LOVE this.  Thank you, Solstice.

My Romantic Comedy, The Pin Up Artist

Good Monday Morning,
  I was going through the list of titles and I realized that I've been so busy that I don't often talk about the Pin Up Artist.

  What a gem of a book.  There's a cast characters that I immediately fell in love with upon their conception. 

Ginger Garrett- I think we can all relate to still being in a dead end job long after  we probably should. The novelty of being a BBQ waitress died long ago, along with her love life.  This poor girl has a penchant for terrible choices in men. But her heart is huge, and you'll learn that its due to her crazy mother  that keeps her on her toes.  So when she falls for the sane, all grown up, Court McClure, you just gotta hold your breath wondering if opposites will attract long term. But she's also suspicious of him, and she comes to some hilarious conclusions.

Court McClure-  Sigh,  so swoon worthy.  He's like the lion in the jungle.  But poor Court.  He's approaching middle age and is feelin' it…

Teaser Tuesday on the blog #ManuscriptMatch The Crowned Raven.

Good Tuesday, everyone. 

I thought I'd share a bit of what I'm working on for Harlequin's Manuscript Match contest.  This has been my favorite contest with Harlequin thus far. I mean, we are all writing together, and have open communication with editors while we do it, via their community web pages. Talk about service!  I'm excited and grow even more so as this story develops. 

Here's a snippet *unedited*

"And so the raven flies here nor there, lavishing his freedom without regard, while the dove obediently listens to her heart and brings forth the olive branch of hope."

He carefully laid Miss Paloma on the deck of his ship whereas she immediately curled herself into a ball, tears falling down the side of her cheeks. The smell of scorched wood carried by the smoke of the Maria burned his nostrils and his eyes. It was not part of his plan.
"Put the fire out on that cutter! Today, is not Overmort’s day to die!" he shouted to two men who had ran…

A new project on the desk! It has nothing to do with horses or cowboys. What?

I'm taking the plunge into the icy waters of the Atlantic. I'm taking a break from the wild west to conquer the wild seas.  My new project, "Black Raven, White Dove," will be my longest to date.  A fierce romance based on betrayal, layered with inspiration, where the passion might be behind doors on the page,but well felt within the reader. 

I found this photo on Pinterest. Deviant Art.  I'd love to have a cover close to this.  

Here's a small , unedited excerpt from Black Raven, White Dove.

"Do I look handsome?"
His question rushed blood to her cheeks. She’d always found Patrick pleasant, but not overly handsome…until now. She realized some of her giddiness was due to the strong current flowing between them.  And his nerve! She had no idea he could be so brave in the face of all these people, especially Overmort!
"Devastatingly. I just wished you would have shown up sooner. I was about to jump overboard."
Patrick nodded absently, h…
