Brace yourselves, ladies! With the release of SECOND-CHANCE SEDUCTION, I’ve launched a new series with Harlequin Desire featuring the McLaren brothers of the highlands of Northern California. To honor their heritage, we’re throwing a Scottish-themed launch party today. The Lair is decked out in tartan, the tables are overloaded with legs o’ lamb (plus haggis for the Bravehearts in the bunch), and the cabana boys are dressed in kilts! Our young, kilted laddies are willing to play a few Scottish games with ye, if ye’ve a mind to… wink, wink, nudge, nudge. The MacLaren brothers are taking California by storm

Sorry this is late, but it’s been one of those weeks! So without further ado, the winner from Rachel Brimble’s visit – who wins either a signed paperback copy of either of Rachel’s Superromance titles or a PDF of either of her Victorian Kensington titles – is … JANE!! Congratulations, Jane. Please send your choice and, if necessary, your snail mail details to Rachel using rachelbrimble at googlemail.com (without the spaces).

Don’t you love getting exactly what you want for your birthday? Isn’t that the best thing? Grins. So, today’s my birthday and my boys – the DH, Eldest and Youngest Sons – did their best to make a weekend of it. It started Friday night when I got to go out with some girlfriends. (Their idea of “time-off for Mom”) This was indeed fun, but the REAL fun was yesterday. On Saturday, I got a FABULOUS present. I got this on Saturday – the day before my birthday – because we’re supposed to get a major Winter Weather Event on my

Happy Winter Weekend! I’m THRILLED to introduce to you my friend and debut author Colette Ballard! Her first novel RUNNING ON EMPTY was just released and I couldn’t think of any place better than the Bandit Lair to spread the word. What does it feel like when you die— in those final moments? Do you feel the physical pain, or just the pain of your regrets? What does it feel like when you realize you can’t answer these questions because you’re not the victim? You’re the killer. River Daniels lives an ordinary life as a high school junior growing up

One of the pleasures of being a Bandita is to have the privilege of inviting some of our favorite writers and good friends to visit with us here in the Lair. Today I have one of my favorites visiting, Romantic Suspense author Kay Thomas, to talk about her new series Elite Ops for Avon Impulse and the debut book HARD TARGET. Pull up a bar stool or chair, and since it’s winter here in the Northern Hemisphere, I thought we’d have some mulled wine or hot chocolate, your choice, and help me welcome my friend, Kay Thomas! Suz: Welcome back to the Lair,

I need help here. I’m going to say it. Shameful as it may be, yes, I’ll say it, right here in front of God and everybody else. I have a fake Christmas tree. My house is 164 years old. It’s partially restored but a long way from finished. I’ll never forget the moment when I walked into the front foyer for the first time. I looked up at the ten-foot ceiling, then I looked at the glass sidelights and transom that wrap around the glass-paneled front door, all original 1800s wavy glass panes, loose enough to rattle in the muntins,

This is the time of year I really knuckle down and start holiday shopping in earnest. Some people are proud Early Shoppers (squinting at YOU, Tawny!), but many of us wait until Thanksgiving to get serious about it. Normally I sit here, pretty content with my lot in life, and can’t think of much I really want for Christmas. But I know for sure my husband will expect a Wish List with web addresses, specifications and colors, so I try to pick a few things out. This is quite apart from the Things I Am Coveting list of last
