Round Robin Event with prizes!


Merry Christmas! Welcome to the next blog in this Christmas Round-Robin! At each author’s blog post, you will find a question that can be answered by checking out the free Amazon preview of their book. Provide the answer at this Google Form.

Note: You must answer the questions for every author in the round-robin to be considered to win the $350 first place, $250 second place or $150 third place Amazon gift cards. (These prizes are USD values. If you are not a U.S. resident, you will get a gift card from the Amazon store for your country; however, it will be valued at these USD amounts.) At the end of my post is a link to the next blog, who will provide a link to the next blog, etc., to the very end.


My book is The Spinster’s Christmas, a Christian historical romantic suspense. I’m also pretty excited because it recently got a brand new cover!

I absolutely love Regency romances, and it was a joy to write The Spinster’s Christmas. I was able to do tons of research into English Christmas traditions from the Regency period, 1811-1820. This Christmas since I have lots of time on my hands, I’m going to try that daunting Christmas Plum Pudding!

Jane Austen once wrote that with her book, Emma, she was writing a heroine no one else would like except for herself. I kind of feel that way about my heroine, Miranda. She’s just like me—she doesn’t fit the mold, she’s slightly spacey, and she has her own unusual way of doing things. (My husband says that’s another way of saying she and I are both weird!)

But Miranda is one of my favorite heroines, if authors are allowed to choose favorites (it’s kind of like choosing your favorite child). She’s able to laugh in the face of embarrassment, she sees life with a fresh outlook, and while her circumstances have gotten her down, she’s not afraid to stand up and face it.

She’s in a pretty bad situation when the story starts. Her parents have died and she’s now living as a poor dependent with her priggish cousin, serving as an unpaid nurserymaid. However, she finds great joy in taking care of her young charge, Ellie.

Then her cousin’s wife wants to send her to one of her own relations as an unpaid servant, except that the master of the house has a bad reputation for abusing the maids. (Unfortunately, this was a common occurrence in Regency England.)

However, Miranda won’t take this sitting down, and she’s using the family gathering over Christmas to talk to the house guests and find another job to save her from her life of drudgery.

Her plans are complicated when a mysterious intruder attacks her childhood friend, Gerard, an injured naval captain struggling with the loss of his livelihood. And suddenly a merry Christmas house party has become deadly serious.

Thanks for visiting! I hope you enjoy The Spinster’s Christmas! You can find the book on Amazon here.

Scavenger Hunt question: What color are Miranda’s eyes? (Hint: Gerard notices their color when they meet again.)

Fill out the answer in this Google Form, then head to the next blog post!

Thanks for visiting my blog! The next author on the tour is Lila Diller, who is telling us all about her Christmas book, Her Heart's Disappointment. You can find it at this link. Remember that you must answer every question from all 37 authors in this collection and that the round-robin will end on December 12th at 11:59 PM EST!

Unshakeable Pursuit has a new cover!

I know I just posted about Necessary Proof, but I also have a new cover for Unshakeable Pursuit! Isn’t it awesome???? I absolutely love this cover! This one was also done by Dineen Miller.

If you got it, be sure to update your copy on your computer/ebook reader so you can get the new cover! If you haven’t, it’s only $2.99. Here’s the back cover description:

A doctor and a nurse, both survivors of their painful pasts, go on the run from Asian hitmen with a secretive agenda.

A Christian Romantic Suspense novella
Book #4.2 in the Sonoma series

Doctor Geoffrey Whelan was in Japan when the tsunami hit, killing his cousin and grandmother. He has worked in medical missions for years to assuage his survivor’s guilt, and now that he’s back in Sonoma to help his family, he can’t figure out why he still feels so wounded and God feels so far away.

Then a mysterious young woman warns him that he and nurse Maylin Kinley are in mortal danger.

Maylin notices that Geoffrey is not the same arrogant doctor she met years ago in Los Angeles. Now that they are working together again in a clinic in Sonoma, she fights her attraction towards him because his confident, forceful personality reminds her too much of her abusive ex-boyfriend, who called himself a Christian.

She has been steering clear of her handsome coworker—until Asian hitmen attack the clinic and they are forced to run for their lives. Now they must race to figure out how the threat is connected to a young teenager whose life they saved—before everyone they love is caught in the crossfire.

** In Unshakeable Pursuit, those of you who have read Stalker in the Shadows will find out what happened to Monica and her Free Children's Clinic, and Liam, whom readers met in Narrow Escape, also makes an appearance. Check out Liam's story in Treacherous Intent!

Necessary Proof has a new cover!

Isn’t it beautiful? Thanks so much to Dineen Miller! She completely gets my tastes.

If you got it, be sure to update your copy on your computer/ebook reader so you can get the snazzy new cover! If you haven’t gotten it yet, Necessary Proof is FREE at all ebook retailers. Here’s the back cover description:

Christian Romantic Suspense
Sonoma series, book #4.1 (novella)

After opening his heart to Jesus in prison, Alex Villa has left his criminal past behind him. However, his efforts to take down a gang producing meth in Sonoma have made him a target. Set up to look like he’s being bribed by the gang, the police blame him for the death of a cop. Only the evidence on an encrypted laptop can prove he’s innocent.

Software engineer Jane Lawton has been betrayed by the men closest to her, including a God she thought would protect her. She won’t let Alex down, because she knows what it feels like to be disbelieved and abandoned.

However, the men after them have orders to repossess the evidence and make sure Jane and Alex take their knowledge to the grave. Can they prove Alex’s innocence before time runs out for them both?

** Those of you who have read Formula for Danger will recognize Jane and Alex as minor characters from that book. I was excited to finally be able to write their own love story!

My new Facebook group!

So, um, I started a Facebook Group! Why? I’m not really sure.

Actually, it just seemed a good way to interact with people on Facebook. People can post their own questions and discussions in the group, whereas if they post it on my Facebook author wall, I’m usually the only one who sees it.

So please join my group and say hi! Otherwise I’ll just be talking to myself. Which isn’t anything new, but doesn’t make people think I’m sane.
