Worth the Risk Release Date Update

The release date for Worth the Risk has been moved forward to June 13, 2018. This time travel romance with an immortal hero and a modern, sometimes psychic heroine, is shaping up to be my longest novel to date, so it has taken longer than I anticipated to complete. In the meantime, the good news is the pre-order period available in most markets has been extended 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!

Almost Midnight...

Three...two...one...Happy New Year!!

I think New Year's Eve should be the official Writer's Holiday. Why? Because of the anticipation, of course! The countdown to midnight is on (or already passed) all around the world. And all year long, writers everywhere will try to capture that fleeting magic and make readers turn the page with one goal; to find out what happens.

Ironic isn't it, how we count down to what is the peak of an upward momentum. Anticipation builds toward the moment when the clock strikes 12 as if we believe something unexpected is going to happen...something that will change everything.

How will we face that moment? How will our characters? Will they bravely stand still, witnessing the moment and hope for the best, or maybe, like Cinderella, will they run?

I wonder what Cinderella thought when then clock started its echoing count down? She seemed to think running her only choice. After all, she knew her illusion would be shattered if she stayed -- the prince would discover who she really was. What does it say about her to believe this would be disaster? What if she hadn't run? What if she hadn't made her escape before the magic ended and revealed her secrets? So many questions!

What if?

That is The Writer's Question only you can answer in an infinte number of ways.
So here's to you on your special holiday and my best wishes for many magical almost midnight moments! What will happen in your story when it's almost midnight? It will be exciting to find out, won't it?

Happy writing in 2011!


  1. You're right, we do act as if something magical is going to happen at the stroke of midnight! Which is really funny considering how cynical humans seem to be in so many ways.

    I have a historical called LORD MIDNIGHT, so I'm hoping something exciting will happen for it when the clock strikes twelve. :) You never know!

    Happy New Year to you. Hope 2011 is a great one for you.

  2. Happy New Year, Donna! I hope your 2011 is a great one too and much success comes your way this year! I'm certain it will be with all the work you've done in 2010! So maybe it will be magic, but it might also be a reward...who's to say? :)

    I read the excerpt of Lord Midnight on your site and loved the start of this story! I can't wait to be able to buy this book!

    Now off to writing to start the year off right! :)
