Coming soon in my next newsletter . . . an exclusive (and very fun!) interview with one of my favorite authors, the super-talented Anna J. Stewart. Anna writes sweet to sexy romance for Harlequin’s Heartwarming and Romantic Suspense lines, is an RWA Golden Heart nominee and Daphne Du Maurier Award for Excellence finalist, and a USA Today and national bestselling author.

  • If you weren’t a romance author, what else would you be doing?
  • Do you have an all-time favorite book in the world?
  • Can you tell us about your upcoming books?
  • Any advice for an aspiring writer?
  • Do you ever experience writer’s block? If so, how do you overcome it?
  • Who or what are your literary influences?

I’m also giving away three print copies of Anna’s The Rancher’s Homecoming. (Don’t you just love the gorgeous cover?!?) Subscribers to my newsletter are automatically entered into the giveaway.

The Bride Takes a Groom (Avon Books) by Lisa Berne, named a Kirkus Best Book of the Year

One of my favorite compliments about The Bride Takes a Groom, the third book in my Penhallow Dynasty series, came from Hot Sauce Reviews:

“A blast to read. . . . All in all, there is something about this story that makes me grin and even laugh — it’s like the child of a good Eloisa James book and a Julia Quinn book, with sweet, emotional moments that nicely balance out the humor.”

A Kirkus Best Book of the Year!

I’m thrilled to share the news with you that The Bride Takes a Groom, the third book in my Penhallow Dynasty series, not only received a starred review from Kirkus Reviews, it’s been named one of their best books of the year!

Plus, it’s also a BookPage Best Romance of the Year, a Fresh Fiction “Fresh Pick,” and a Publishers Weekly “Big Title.” To top it all off, Booklist said:

“With perfectly polished prose, a rare gift for creating superbly rendered characters, and a sense of wit that rivals Georgette Heyer at her best, Berne gifts romance readers with the third sterling addition to her not-to-be-missed, Regency-set Penhallow Dynasty series.”

My cup runneth over!

I’m delighted to be sharing a signed copy of USA Today bestselling author Vivienne Lorett’s wonderful When a Marquess Loves a Woman.

. . . about this nifty Facebook group for book lovers like me — and you, too, perhaps?
