MY NEW RELEASE: THE CAPTAIN'S LADY


I'm so excited to announce that The Captain's Lady will be released March 16!! This is my first book set outside the United States, so it's a landmark for me. Come with me to 1776 LONDON, where American Patriot James Templeton is torn between love and duty and must deny his heart to help win his country's freedom.

Captain James Templeton's orders from General Washington are clear. His target: Lord Bennington, a member of George III's Privy Council. The assignment: find Bennington's war plans. The risks: the future of the East Florida Colony, Jamie's life...and his heart. In spite of the dangers of their hopeless situation, he's fallen in love with Lady Marianne Moberly, Lord Bennington's daughter. Desperate to protect his country, Jamie carries out his orders with a heavy heart. But Marianne's persistence is a challenge he never expected. With love and faith, they must navigate troubled waters to win their future together.


I had so much fun writing this book, and I was also inspired by what I learned in my research. It's amazing to me that those brave American patriots gave up so much so they could establish a new country with a new form of government never before tried. Today, we don't have any idea what that was like, but I do know I'm grateful to live in a free society. I hope my readers will catch a glimpse of all that our forefathers and foremothers were willing to give up so we can breathe the air of freedom.

The Captain's Lady is published by Harlequin's Steeple Hill Love Inspired Historical imprint. It can be ordered from cbd.com, amazon.com, and Barnesandnoble.com, or purchased at your local bookstore or even Walmart! Here's the ISBN: 13-978-0-373-82832-6.

If you would like to win a copy of The Captain's Lady, leave a comment AND YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS. I will have my drawing on March 31. Also, this contest is limited to residents of the United States and Canada. Because this kind of drawing is against the law in some locales, it is your responsibility to know the laws of your state or province and refrain from entering if it's a no-no there.

When you leave your comment, please also ask me any questions you might have about the book or about my writing. I love to chat with my readers and try to be prompt in responding.

I'm just about over the top with excitement! I just learned that Love Thine Enemy is on the Christianbook.com Love Inspired Historical bestseller list! It's also on the fiction bestseller list at CBD. Wow! Thank you to everyone who bought my book. And not only that, but I captured the book cover for my March 2010 release, The Captain's Lady, which is a sequel to Love Thine Enemy. What more can I ask for? I love writing for Steeple Hill Love Inspired Historicals. More about The Captain's Lady later.
