Worth the Risk Release Date Update

The release date for Worth the Risk has been moved forward to April 10, 2019. This time travel romance with an immortal hero and a modern, sometimes psychic heroine, is available for pre-order with the price set to $2.99. Pre-order on Amazon at this price will be made available for a short time before release. I am also considering a box set of the previous books, but until then, the single titles available to catch you up to Worth the Risk are, in order:

The Castle - This novella length story is set in the fantasy world of time travelers and introduces Heather and her ill-fated love with the immortal Eric.

If I Stay - A full length novel, this story is set mostly in Regency England and also the fantasy world of the time travelers. The heroine, Ariana (Heather and Eric's daughter), is a time traveler with amnesia, and her hero is Justin, a Regency duke.

An Unsuitable Entanglement - This novella length story is set mostly in the fantasy world of the time travelers, with time traveling stops along the way! The heroine is Alison, a time traveler who begins her adventures with a hero far less serious than she, the outrageous Lord Percy from Regency England (the best friend of Justin).

Ghost of a Promise - this full length novel is a departure from the world of time travelers, but here, in this romantic suspense story set in a contemporary setting, is where you'll meet Carrie, the future heroine in Worth the Risk. But if you want to jump in here, to this first of the two stories featuring the Riley siblings, feel free to do so! Ben Riley, Carrie's brother, must work out the mystery of his death (yep, it's a ghost story) and save his wife Beth, who is the troubled heroine at the mercy of the worst in-laws a husband could ever imagine.


Carrie and Eric (aka Nick until she learns his secret) have an epic adventure coming to you soon, I promise!

Summertime Reflection in My Backyard

The end of July? Say it isn't so! Here in northern Minnesota, we've been treated to one of those rare summers where you can almost imagine what other people are talking about when they say 'endless summer.' Oh, so this is what they mean - - day after day of temperatures in that perfect upper seventies/low eighties range. This is unusual, to say the least, for our region known as the icebox of the country. Last summer, the sweaters never did get packed away, but this summer is a different story.
I'd say the weather has made a big difference in my jealousy factor for all the travel and conferences my writerly friends and others are experiencing right about now. The RWA conference is in full swing in Florida. That's okay. My sister is attending a conference in Las Vegas. That's okay. Now if it were January...

But it's not. It's July for a couple of days yet and the lake is calling. And how can you resist this face when he says, "let's go swimming!" I certainly can't. Nope, I'm not getting a lot of writing or much of anything else done this summer. You'll find us (Michael and I) at our 'secret' spot at a little lake deep in the woods. However, I am NOT getting on that rope swing. Again.

While we're here, I will still feel writerly. How can I not, with the sunshine sparking on the water? We can hear the lonely call of a loon through the whisper of the pines. He's out there somewhere, but not willing to show himself. If you've never heard it, here's an audio from YouTube. I think this one is in Maine, but it's the same call here. LOL
Hope you are enjoying your summer, whether it's with Micky Mouse, the bright lights of the Vegas Strip, in the vicinity of a lonely loon, or wherever you may be.


  1. How adorable! And you're right -- completely irresistible! I'm glad you're having such a wonderful summer. We're having the same kind too. Last year it rained almost the whole time, and it just didn't have that "summery" feel. This year -- so far -- it's been that perfect range of temperature, with a slight breeze, making me feel lazy yet content. Wish it could be this way ALL year long!

  2. Those pictures were yesterday - - today it's raining. Go figure. LOL Guess we need a few rainy days too.

    How could we wish for more than a 'lazy yet content' feeling? I'm glad you're having perfect weather too. Too bad it couldn't be this way all year long or we could maybe stop time. There I go, thinking like a paranormal writer. LOL
