FIreworks and new releases, it must be July!

Hi all –

Just wanted to make a few announcements –

Trish bannerJuly 1st, Trish is starting the day with a bang!  She’s hosting a Facebook launch party to celebrate A RANCHER TO LOVE and to let everyone know that Harlequin is changing the name of her line of from Harlequin American Romance to Harlequin Western Romance.  Be sure to check it out.  She’s got a line-up of authors giving some great giveaways.  A wonderful way to celebrate July!

Untitled-3Here’s another super July event.  More than 50 authors will be participating in a July 4th historical romance sweepstakes.  I’ll be one of them.July 4th giveaway  The sweepstakes runs through July 11th.  But you can’t enter till Monday, the 4th.  Hope you’re one of the winners!  Can you see The Whisky Laird’s Bed in the lower center?  Here’s the link to the contest but it won’t be active till July 4th.

Speaking of The Whisky Laird’s Bed, just a reminder that my publisher has put that book on sale for .99 till July 17th.  Don’t forget to give it a try at this fantastic price.

July 19th brings a new release.  IN A HEARTBEAT will be available for purchase. Here’s the blurb:

Transplanted hearts can hold memories. They can give voice to the dead. And they can hold the key to identifying a serial killer.

Assigned to do an audit for an old client may finally give Certified Public Accountant Angela Blake what she really wants: independence from a family that’s been overprotective for far too long. Her recent heart transplant has given her a new lease on life and she’s ready to live. The demanding new CEO of Hayden Industries may be InaHeartbeatdistractingly sexy, but Angela’s audit reveals troubling hints of deception. What is he hiding?

Hank Renard never wanted to be CEO of Hayden Industries, but his parents’ impending financial ruin gave him no choice. If he doesn’t reverse the flow of red ink, he’ll lose the lucrative incentives offered. The clumsy, adorable auditor with the face of an angel only adds to his problems.

A series of troubling accidents point to a dangerous truth: someone wants Angela Blake dead. With her job, her heart and her life in peril, will Angela survive to discover a long-awaited love, or will her new life end before it’s barely begun?


 Preorder here. 


For those in the Akron area, I’ll be at the Ohio Expo.  Hope to see you there!

Hope everyone has a fantastic July!!!

    • Thanks Ki –

      I’ll let you in on a secret. We’re hosting a baby shower here, at my house, tomorrow. The small intimate gathering I can anticipated has grown into a much larger affair. I decided to rent some chairs so people could sit. The man I talked to said, “So you’ll pick them up on Friday and return them on Tuesday.”
      Me: “I can return them on Monday.”
      Him: “What kind of an American are you?” He laughs. I don’t get it.
      Me: “But the contract is only for one night – right?”

      I tell my husband and he says “Monday is the 4th of July.”
      D’uh – I’ve been so caught up in preparing for this baby shower that I forgot! 🙂

    Happy July and hope everyone has a fun and safe Independence Day. Have fun, Donna. I like attending baby showers. The food is usually great and it’s fun to see all those cute baby clothes and toys.

    • Love baby clothes and those tiny little shoes!!! My daughter is doing all the cooking as she’s the official host. I’m providing the house, but that means I have to clean it (ugh). My husband has been fixing up the garden. It’s turned into a major project! I noted on my calendar of to-dos for Sunday – Collapse! 🙂
