Welcome to April, & we’re not fooling! There are tons of treats & hijinx to be had in the lair this month. Here’s a quick preview of what’s in store….
WE HAVE GUESTS!
On April 2nd, our own Anna Campbell hosts Lair favorite Miranda Neville! Miranda is coming back to us to cause general mayhem & talk about her wonderful new Burgundy Club book CONFESSIONS FROM AN ARRANGED MARRIAGE. A lot of romance fans have been hanging out for Minerva’s story and it’s about to arrive. Huzzah!
On April 3rd, Suzanne Ferrell brings JD Tyler to the lair to talk about SAVAGE AWAKENING, the second full book in her Alpha Pack series. She and Suzanne will discuss JD’s sexy wolf shifter, Arik Savage, and all the newest developments in the world of the Alpha Pack. Will Arik meet his mate or find himself a victim of secret experimentation claiming more than one shifter?
On April 4th, Anna Campbell’s back with Maggie Robinson who will tell us about her latest release MASTER OF SIN. Maggie writes a really hot historical so we’re expecting the windows of the lair to steam up when she starts talking about her latest hero Andrew Rossiter.
On April 5th, if she escapes from the chaos of having her house totally revamped–walls knocked down, kitchen replaced, etc.—Kate Walker will be talking about the publication of her latest Presents Extra title–THE DEVIL AND MISS JONES– and celebrating being 60. In book terms, that is.
On April 6th, Jessica Andersen returns with the penultimate Nightkeepers book, MAGIC UNCHAINED. Join us for a chat about the hunky hero, Sven (no relation to our equally hunky Sven, alas) and his magical familiar.
On April 9th, Eloisa James will be back in the Lair to chat about her fabulous memoir, PARIS IN LOVE, and the year she spent in Paris.
On April 18th, Trish will host Mari Mancusi, who will be celebrating the re-release of her zombie post-apocalyptic YA, Tomorrow Land. Can true love survive the apocalypse? How about the walking dead?
And finally, on the 27th, Grace Burrowes comes to the Lair to discuss the latest release in her delicious Windham series, LADY MAGGIE’S SECRET SCANDAL.
It’s sure to be an exciting month,so don’t miss a day!

WOO HOO!!! We had quite a time with all our celebrating and treasure hunting on Friday. Aunty still has a teeny weeny lingering headache just behind her eyeballs. (Note to self: DO NOT mix mimosas, margaritas, mojitos, or any other “M” drink again!) I hope everyone else is sufficiently recovered, though I fear some of those ‘assistant’ treasure hunters may never be quite the same. (Aunty lifts her eyebrow at certain Banditas and BBs.)
Anyway, the handy dandy Random Number Generator has selected the WINNERS in our treasure hunt… DRUM ROLL PLEASE!
Looks like the designer purse, Clive Owen, and the mini-metal detector proved to be a winning combination! PINK PEONY… you are the WINNER of the autographed copy of The Treasures of Venice!
And I hope CYBERCLIPER and her assistant Gerard Butler have managed to find their way back from the deep dark reaches of Romania, because she is the WINNER of the autographed copy of The Wild Sight (or a box of chocolates if you’ve already read the book)!
Ladies, please send you mailing information to Aunty Cindy at her website: www.LoucindaMcgary.com
And HUGE THANX to everyone for joining in on my Launch and treasure hunt!
