CommercialWhich do you prefer?

I love the feel of a good book, the hard cover, crisp new pages, that fresh smell of ink on paper. Or in the case of older books, there is the subtle yellowing of the pages, the musty, dusty smell from years of accumulated dust and wear.

There is something about a print book that beckons to you from the shelf as your eyes move across the rows and rows of titles, searching for that one book you must have for your evening’s entertainment.

Sometimes you’re looking for an old friend, something comfortable with no surprises. You’ve been here before and enjoyed the journey.

Other times you hope for excitement, romance, a little mystery. Maybe there’s a new world out there to visit, or a hidden corner on this one with a delectable little tale to tell.

But what about eBooks?

They have their advantages. If you travel for a living, or if your headed out for a couple of weeks, it can be difficult to carry the books you hope to read. In some places, it can be difficult to find books written in your language. If you don’t read the language of the region, you may be short of reading material.

My husband travels for work and is a voracious reader. He would need at least one extra checked bag just for books–which would get expensive.

His e-Reader is a lifesaver! He can take a whole library with him and pick and choose what he wants to read, from old favorites to new acquaintances. He isn’t destined to reread those same three books he’s been reading for the past month.

All of his favorite authors are represented, in all their genres.

When I travel with him, we each have our favorites and our to-reads with us, so we’re never without something to read. I can read at the airport while waiting to depart, read on the plane, and have something new to read around the pool when I arrive at the hotel.

Do I like eBooks? The stories are the same, no matter the format. I love being able to bring a wide assortment of books with me when I travel.

Do I prefer eBooks? No. They like the intimacy of the print books for me. There are no book covers begging to be caressed as I read. There is no scent adding to the experience of text on paper. There are no little identifying marks from where someone dripped coffee on the page while reading at the breakfast table.

Nowhere are there bite marks from the cat seeking attention, or wisps of fur between the pages from a friend who passed long ago.

Are print books a thing of the past? I hope not.

Do I offer my books in e-Format?


There are too many reasons why people use eBooks in this day and age not to do so. Limiting your readers to a choice of either one or the other cuts you out of a good portion of the market.

Jareth, First Lord is now available for Kindle at Amazon. Watch for Viviane, First Lady for Kindle later this week.

Both are currently available in paperback as well.

What’s next? Keep your eyes open for Mistaken Identity, a romantic intrigue set in a distant star system on the verge of war.

After Mistaken Identity watch for Master of the Fleet, an alternate timeline of America, where elemental magic rules the world.

Black and whiteViviane, First Lady has been out for a couple months now and is doing well. So what is next?

RuleBreaker Enterprises has my latest draft of Mistaken Identity, a stand alone fantasy intrigue with a good dose of romance thrown in. In this story, you’ll meet Michael and Krista, our couple to be, out in a star system where two worlds circle the same sun. And they don’t get along.

I expect to be swimming in red ink here in a little while.

Just to keep myself entertained–like I really need help in that department–my current work-in-progress is another Fantasy Romance with paranormal elements I call Master of the Fleet. Set in an alternate timeline of America in the very early 1900’s, Richard LeMarnier owns a merchant fleet. As Master of the Fleet, he has control over the elements of wind and water. And what surprises does his adored, Anne-Marie hold for us?

Sorry. This one hasn’t even gone to the editor yet.

In the meantime, while you wait for these to hit the bookstores, check out

Jareth First Lord,

Viviane First Lady

and Gambler’s Folly.

All are available at these locations.




Go on! Everyone needs a little romance…

Ciao everyone!

Black and whiteWell, look no further! With the release of Viviane, First Lady, I have three novels out there for you to try.

Gambler’s FollyFuturistic, paranormal, mainstream romance. M/F

He is Damiano, rich, handsome and one of the most powerful and feared of the underworld leaders.

She is Karianna, a woman on vacation.

He wins possession of her on the turn of one hand of cards. Now that he’s won her, can her win her heart as well?



Jareth, First Lord–Mainstream Fantasy Romance, M/F

He is Jareth, the First Lord clan Brannach. Widowed for two years, he must find someone who can give him an heir. During a dispute with a neighboring First Lord, he meets the woman of his dreams.

She is Viviane, the daughter of a First Lord, but after marrying a commoner, wants no part of the first family constraints. When her husband is killed in an accident, it seems she will have to move back to the family seat, until Jareth rides into town and carries her off.

Can Jareth win her heart before they start a clan war?


Viviane, First Lady–Mainstream Fantasy Romance

Now that she has settled in Clan Brannach and unbidden psychic talents begin to emerge, Viviane struggles to control her talents before they become a threat to everyone around her.

But though she is frustrated in her training, her nights with Jareth are exhilarating as the two of them explore the exquisite pleasure two talented people can experience.

CommercialYes, Viviane First Lady is now in print! I got my box of author’s copies and pre-orders today. Now as soon as the bookmarks get here, the pre-orders can go out.

What is Viviane about? 

This sequel to Jareth, First Lord picks up right after the wedding, with Jareth explaining to Viviane about the talents she has inherited from her father. And that she has to get some training before they cause problems.

But training as an adult is not an easy task and she struggles to gain the control she so badly wants and needs. Especially after they are told that she will be required to travel back to Clan Belfort for her brother’s trial for treason. Jareth had wanted to keep her away from the emotional turmoil of the trial, since the talents are tied in with emotions. And when Viviane becomes emotional, there’s just no telling what will happen.

If her days of striving for control are frustrating, her nights with Jareth are exhilarating, as they discover and explore the deeper intimacy possible for those who are talented. With the talents they both have, the earth really can move.

Black and whiteWhile technology can make things much easier, when things go wrong, look out! this has been the case with the cover for Viviane, First Lady. Due to some glitch between the original artist’s work and the cover artist for the publisher, we have been in delays for a couple weeks.

But I believe that is finally resolved. I should hear later today on the print schedule. So Viviane should soon be in your hands.

The second book of the Esperance Series, Viviane, First Lady picks up where Jareth, First Lord ends.

After her marriage to Jareth, First Lord of Clan Brannach, Viviane takes up the responsibilities and title of First Lady. But her most difficult task is learning to control her newly emerging talents, with psychic abilities as strong and varied as any first lord would have.

On top of that, her brother Carl demands his right to face his accusers at his trial for treason, a bad idea with Viviane’s out of control talents—talents enhanced by her emotions. And as emotional as she will be at the trial, it is anybody’s guess what will happen when the pressure in the court begins to rise.

But if her days of struggling for control are frustrating, her nights with Jareth are exhilarating as the two of them discover and explore the deeper levels of intimate pleasure possible between two talented people.

Viviane, First Lady—the story continues.
