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!

Time Out for a Summer Day Reflection

So much for my 3 part blog post idea.  I should know better when it's summer time!  Yesterday my son had a baseball game and on the way back some friends and I stopped by my childhood town. I thought I'd share some pics taken by a friend.  What a beautiful Northern Minnesota day! 

 Wow, what a reflection! (Down the river a few hundred yards are the rapids.  You wouldn't guess it from the calm waters here!  The bridge is an old railroad bridge.  When I was a kid, the trains still ran and we use to walk across...what were we thinking?)

Michael and Me (I'm not as agile on the rocks as I use to be!)


Michael and a friend

 Another lovely reflection on the river.

Michael's best friend, Samantha.  She found the "best" walking stick and insisted we take it home.  It's still in my trunk and waiting for our next adventure.


  1. This is wonderful! Michael is adorable, and I'm smiling about his bestie finding the awesome walking stick that's a keeper. :) I think you deserve that day off, after all the schoolwork you've been doing.

    And I have to admit to being slightly jealous. It's actually been COLD here. In June. Right now my feet are freezing and I wish I knew where the winter socks are hidden! So the pics of your wonderful summer interlude will have to do the trick of keeping me warm. :)

  2. Thanks, Donna! :) It's not often we're than elsewhere in the country, but it has been HOT here. Can't complain though! Michael IS adorable, but I didn't think so in the car. Way too much sugar. LOL Walking the rocks helped, but I can't say who steadied who...I tried to help him across some streams but tipped us both off balance a time or two! LOL

    Glad you liked the photos!

  3. That was supposed to be "it's not often we're WARMER than elsewhere in the country"...oops, skipping words. LOL

  4. Wow, just found your blog, and I am loving it Melissa! Can't wait to go through all the articles of being a romance writer. Because I need a little help. :)

  5. Anonymous: Thanks so much! I really appreciate you taking the time to give my your feedback. I'm so glad you're enjoying the blog!

    We ALL need a little help when we write our stories. I know that I need LOTS of help. LOL I hope some of my thoughts and links on my search will help you too!
