#TeaserTuesday Gambling for Love Box Set

I was lucky to get the rights back to THE PRINCE’S GAMBLE and TO CATCH A PRINCESS. These two books are romantic suspense stories with Russian Royalty and set in luxurious casinos in Atlantic City and Monaco. I’ve re-released those two books with new covers and in a box set where you can save on the purchase of both books. Both books are now also available in print:

The Prince’s Gamble Trade Paperback: http://amzn.to/1EfQHDa
To Catch a Princess Trade Paperback: http://amzn.to/1ET3vKK

I’d love to hear what you think about the cover for the box set. Do you like the green or would you rather see a different color/photo on the spine? I’ll be working on a third book in the series – THIEF OF HEARTS – for release in Spring 2016.

TO CATCH A PRINCESS #Free Read

I’m so excited about my upcoming romantic suspense release TO CATCH A PRINCESS. It’s sexy and emotional. Action-packed. Set in the very elegant and over-the-top principality of Monaco. Plus, I love not only laid back Detective Peter Roman, but the very determined and in charge woman that Tatiana has become. You may remember her as Alexander’s little sister in THE PRINCE’S GAMBLE.

But I also fell in love with thief in the book, so you know my mind is already wondering what to do about him in the future!

Anyway, here’s a little excerpt from TO CATCH A PRINCESS and I hope you’ll love seeing what’s up with Alexander and Kathleen from THE PRINCE’S GAMBLE.

Thank you, Nicole!

Here is a lovely shot of the harbor in Monaco. A number of scenes in the book happen in and around this harbor.

Tuesday Travels Philly Flower Show & Monaco

I am so excited about the current WIP, TO CATCH A PRINCESS. It is moving along so well and I’m having a blast with it. Only sad part is that I’ve never been to Monaco and so I can’t include any real life experience for you. It looks like such a fabulous place and it’s been on my Bucket List for a while, so hopefully I’ll get there one day.

Right now I’m working on a scene where the hero whisks away the heroine to his family’s villa just outside of Eze, a small town in France. The roads in this area are kind of risky and curvy and with this being a romantic suspense, you just know there has to be some kind of speeding car scene! I won’t say more and ruin it for you.

Here’s a shot of what some of the roads in the area look like! A sure bet for a wild ride.

But now for some more mundane travel right around the corner from home: Philadelphia. I love the city and of course, the annual flower show! This year it was really nice. The theme was Britain and there were some beautiful gardens and flowers to see and smell.

Here are some of my favorite shots. You can see more by clicking here.

#ManCandyMonday Hrithik Roshan #Bollywood Hottie

I had a fabulous weekend! My writing buddy Nisha Sharma and I hunkered down to get some serious writing down, but we also took time to hang with my daughter and the equally fabulous Gail Freeman, Past President of the Liberty States Fiction Writers.

I was working on my latest WIP – TO CATCH A PRINCESS (working title). This is the romantic suspense follow-up to THE PRINCE’S GAMBLE and I am so loving how this story is working out. I hope you’ll like it also!!

But in between the writing and talking writing, Nisha introduced me to the hunks of Bollywood with the action film DHOOM 2 (or BLAST 2 in English). OMG is the main actor, Hrithik Roshan, a hottie. Gorgeous face and eyes. Amazing body and boy, can he dance. I discovered that about Bollywood movies. At any time the actors and actresses can break out into dance and song with dozens of extras behind them in synchronized movement.

Kind of interesting and it was hard not to appreciate Hrithik every time he came on the screen, especially when he was bare chested! LOL! But in a more serious vein, Hrithik has won numerous Best Actor awards for his work in various movies, so he’s not just a pretty face.

Hope you enjoyed today’s Man Candy Monday.

To Catch a Princess #WIP #SpoilerAlert

Many of you have been asking about the secondary characters in THE PRINCE’S GAMBLE, especially Peter and Tatiana. You clearly sensed there was something there and wanted to know more about it . . .

So yes, there is a sequel to THE PRINCE’S GAMBLE and yes, it features none other than Peter and Tatiana and a mysterious, sexy man who is not what he seems.

The tentative title of the book is TO CATCH A PRINCESS, although titles are always something we play around with for a variety of reasons. This working title was inspired by Cary Grant/Grace Kelly motion picture TO CATCH A THIEF since most of Peter and Tatiana’s book will be set at the Ivanov casino in Monaco and since part of the suspense revolves around a serious of high end jewelry heists. SO EXCITING!

How I wish I could visit Monaco for some real life inspiration, but sadly, it’ll just have to be research. The site for the principality actually has some great information as well as a smartphone app! Perfect for when I’m on the train and need some quick information.

So what is TO CATCH A PRINCESS about? Think jewel thief to start, but add a big dose of revenge that will threaten Peter and Tatiana’s lives. Think haute couture fashion show loaded with priceless Russian jewelry and relics, just waiting to be stolen. Think of an arranged marriage for Tatiana and a betrayal she never expected from the man she has come to love . . .

Sigh. I’m having so much fun with this! The glamour and the danger. Fast cars and dangerous mountain curves. Money, jewels and of course, romance.

Big sigh. I can’t wait to finish it so you can read it. As soon as we have a final title and publication date, I will be sure to share with you!
