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!

A Change of Scenery...

I have no new blog to post, but I figured the least I can do is change my background to reflect spring! Actually, it's more like a summer scene, but I should be safe until I post again when the leaves are about to change.

I'm kidding! I'll post again before...let's see...hmmm...Memorial Day for sure! It's just that it's been a busy time with an overloaded class schedule this semester. But I only have a few more weeks to go! Then, I've lightened up on the schedule and only have one course each month in May, June and July.

So, stay tuned...because you never know what I'll find to report on from my classes once I get the chance to regroup! You might get parts of my essay on "Hawthorne's Aesthetic Distance: A Spiraling Journey from Familiar to Fantasy." Yes, it does seem a bit of a mouthful, but I had fun with that one!

Until then, happy writing and I hope you enjoy the spring...summer..what season is it?


  1. I love the new background! It's finally starting to feel like spring here (even though we had snow last week!) The temps are getting higher during the day, and the daffodils look like they're getting brave enough to open up soon. So I'm definitely hopeful!

    I'm glad you'll have a lighter workload the next few months. I miss seeing you around! Plus you deserve a break from all your hard work. :)

  2. Donna, don't you just love those brave daffodils?I've seen a couple of daffodils on the south facing side of my house while the north facing side is still covered in snow! It does seem amazing and encouraging to see spring "right around the corner." :)

    Btw, I read your Wednesday blog at Romance Writer's Revenge on being your own heroine and trying and failing at new things. By the time I read it I'd missed the boat for commenting (story of my life), but I found it very inspiring for my college return decisions. Because honestly, I often I wonder at the sense of my decisions to attempt classes that, at the outset, seem to have more chance for failure than success. And if you do fail, it seems like an "I told you so" from the gods is waiting in the wings to confirm your poor judgment to try! They would probably follow up with, "It's just not for you" or "stick with what you know." But that does get boring, if boring is that discontented feeling something is missing. It doesn't compete with the satisfaction of beating the odds and succeeding at something that seemed a struggle because it was too new and foreign when attempted the first time around. It's been my most satisfying accomplishment to repeat a course I failed at and turn it into an A. True, lots of sensible people tried to make me feel better about such a spectacular failure by saying some form of "it's just not for you." It's so tempting to give up when early failures seems to prove that your interests and talents are put together by an incompetent matchmaker. But it does feel oh, so good to prove them wrong. :)

  3. Love the new background - it makes me long for summer!!

  4. Thanks, Kelly. Oh, and we're now trying to melt off a foot of new snow (after it had all finally melted), so that's disheartening! LOL
