Here's the back cover teaser for my December release, A Bravo Christmas Wedding:


Princess Aurora Bravo-Calabretti is wishing for a mountain man this Christmas! But her most unroyal crush—rancher Walker McKellan—insists that they remain "just friends." Now he's her round-the-clock bodyguard while she is the maid of honor at her cousin's holiday wedding. Rory can't resist this Colorado cowboy…but she wishes she was walking down the aisle to meet Walker at the altar! 

Both the best man to the groom and Rory's bodyguard, Walker can't shake his charge. As he begins to see Rory in a different light, a surprise snowstorm strands him with his princess…and sparks ignite into a holiday love affair! Can their Christmas passion blossom into a very Bravo happily-ever-after?


This book will be the last in my Bravo Royales series.  It will also introduces my next series of Bravo Family stories, The Bravos of Justice Creek, which will star the children of Franklin Bravo.  Frank's no longer alive when these stories begin.  He had two wives, Sondra Oldfield Bravo and Willow Mooney Bravo.  And he cheated on the first with the second, having children with both of them pretty much at the same time.

Here's a little more on that subject: 

From the beginning, thirty-four years ago, when he took up with 18-year-old Willow Mooney, everyone in Justice Creek knew that Frank Bravo had a well-bred heiress wife at home and a young thing on the side.  Then both women started having babies practically simultaneously.  And not only that, Willow called her children by the last name of Bravo and Frank openly claimed them; he was named right there on their birth certificates as the dad. So Frank not only essentially had two families, the man was bold as brass about it and didn’t seem to care who knew.  Everyone said Sondra ought to leave him, but she never did, just went on popping out the babies at about the same rate as Willow across town...

Cover and Back Cover Copy The Earl's Pregnant Bride, an October 2014 Release

I love this cover, even though the hero really looks nothing like the hero of the book.

Here's the back cover copy:


And now the princess is in a pickle. Because the night that Genevra Bravo-Calabretti and the new Earl of Hartmore, Rafael DeValery, turned to each other, it was for comfort upon the death of his brother—the man who was about to propose to Genny. It was not supposed to change their lives forever.

But it had. For Rafe, it cemented his awareness that he'd been in love with Genevra since forever. And for Genny, it made her realize that Rafe was not the second-chance brother, but the one who'd held her heart all along…now all she had to do was convince him of that. Hopefully before the new heir(ess?) to the estate arrived…

And what does Rafe actually look like, you might ask?

A cross between Jason Momoa: 

And Joe Manganiello: 

And yes, he's an English earl.  I know, he doesn't look very English.  That's because there are secrets in the story.  Deep, closely-held family secrets....

Cover and Back Cover Copy July Release

Yes, it is hunky former villain, Nate Crawford claiming this cover all for himself.  What I like:  Nate wants to make good after all his past bad behavior.  I love the expression here, like he's looking into the future and promises to be a better man.

And so he will.

This is the launch book for Harlequin's 20-year celebration of Montana Mavericks.  Yep.  You heard right.  20 full years of MM deliciousness!

And the back cover copy reads:


Finding true love: priceless 

People say that the odds of finding your perfect partner are rather like the odds of hitting the lottery: slim to none. It's hard to believe, faithful readers, but Nate Crawford may just have accomplished both. We have the scoop on Rust Creek Falls' best-kept secret: our former mayoral candidate is now a very wealthy man! Yet he is going out of his way to make sure no one finds out. The question is, why? 

Insiders whisper that Nate is also keeping another secret from his new girlfriend, nurse Callie Kennedy—a big one—and it could be a game changer. Place your bets, dear readers! What will she do when she learns her "regular guy" boyfriend is really a maverick millionaire?

Montana Mavericks:

Twenty years in the saddle!
