The pleasure! The controversy!

Since the Pleasures of Sin was available for free download for a few days last week the sales have taken off. It also received several new reviews, some flattering, some not so much. I love the controversy and the stark difference of opinion. Enjoy!


James of Montgomery received the prestigious K.I.S.S. (Knights In Shining Silver) Award from Romantic Times.

And he also received this award:
“this so-called hero was possibly the worst guy I have ever read about in all of the thousands of historical romance books I’ve read.”

Several people emailed me to tell me that my third book, The Pleasures of Sin, is free to download on kindle and Nook today.



“This highly sensual battle-of-wills/captive-captor romance is highly reminiscent of early Johanna Lindsey with its biting repartee, heated love scenes and even a tied-up heroine. If you’re looking for a new twist on a classic, this is it.”

Making Bread

One time when I tried to made bread, I made bricks instead. Could have built a castle. Today I decided to try again.

The outcome: Three hours to make. Ten minutes to disappear. One happy family.

Cold “Cure” Tea

Cold “Cure” Tea

1 lemon
1 orange
2 large cinnamon sticks
2 Tablespoons of cloves
1 can frozen concentrated apple juice
2 pieces of ginger the size of a man’s little finger
10 cups water

Cut lemon and orange into slices. Boil lemon, orange, cinnamon sticks, and cloves for 30 minutes. Peal and slice the ginger and add it to the mixture–boil for 20 more minutes. Remove from heat and add the apple juice to sweeten.

Add honey when served. (Optional)

It’s a little bitter if the ginger is cooked too long, but I think this works pretty well.
