You've been wondering about me, right? I have been buried in deadline hell — and I'm about to go back into it for another book due mid-July. But I had to stop and tell you that BEHIND THE PALACE WALLS is available and shipping from Amazon and Barnes & Noble right now! It should be in stores in the next few days. It might even be there now, but I've had no time to go look. If you've seen it, let me know!

Thanks to all my wonderful readers for putting this book on the Kindle bestseller list! Always very exciting for me. πŸ™‚ I never take it for granted that a book will make any list, so I'm very happy when they do. And they wouldn't if y'all weren't buying! So thank you.

Next up in the UK is HEARTLESS REBEL, which is Book 5 in the Bad Blood series. That book will be in the US in November as THE MAN WITH THE MONEY (the series will then be called The Notorious Wolfes — Book 1 of that series will be out next month: A NIGHT OF SCANDAL by the fabulous Sarah Morgan).

Right now, I'm working on a new book that will also be part of a series coming out next year! I can't tell you anything about it, but trust me when I say this is an exciting concept!

Hope your summer is going well so far. It's already reaching almost 100 degrees in Alabama this week. I'm staying indoors as much as possible! Except for Saturday when I will venture out to the Heart of Dixie Readers' Luncheon in Huntsville. If you're planning to be there, be sure and stop by to say hello. I'll be hosting my own table, and of course I'll be signing books afterward. I'd love to meet any of my readers!

And if you aren't going to be at the luncheon, I'm still giving you a chance to win a signed copy of THE DEVIL'S HEART. Leave me a comment here on the blog and tell me what your favorite nationality is for a Harlequin Presents hero! I'll also toss in some other goodies: bookmarks, romance novel trading cards, a totebag, and an excerpt book.
