The sequel to YANKEE EARL is finished and on sale in September on Amazon, Nook, Kobo and iTunes. After a lot of misfires as I wrote my first solo book, I completed the final edits and had my wonderful cover designer Kim Killion do a beautiful cover. It's shown here. I think she really captured the feel of the book and of Fox Barlow.

SHAWNEE LORD is the fourth "American Lord" in the series. Fox played a prominent role as a young boy in the first book, when the Marquess of Cargrave adopted him, providing him an education and taking him into the Beaumont family. While in university Fox was given the mocking title of Shawnee lord by jealous classmates. He claimed the name proudly as a damn-you-eyes badge of honor. His mixed red Indian blood kept him outside the pale of Society, but Fox Barlow did not care. As he grew into manhood, he came to love his sybaritic life as an infamous womanizer who welcomes Cyprians and aristocratic ladies into his bed and just as quickly discards them...until he meets a baron's daughter...

Catherine Caruthers is a cousin to Beth Blackthorne from WANTON ANGEL. With the encouragement of her mentor Beth, Catherine shuns Society's rules and seeks her own identity as a ship designer. Working at the Blackthorne Shipyards in London is highly unusual for any woman, much less for a lady. But her keen wit and fiery beauty tempt Fox in a way no other woman ever has. See a new excerpt about the ongoing attraction between them on the Upcoming section.

The book abounds with critters-her incredible big orange tom cat Tangerine meets Beth's old King Charles spaniel Percy. From YANKEE EARL, Rachel's two toothless mastiffs Adonis and Paris appear. And from WICKED ANGEL, even Joss' ancient brindle pit bull Poc has one of his offspring make a cameo appearance. Humor abounds and Fox takes to calling her "Cat with the cat."

When Beth and Rachel see how Fox and Cat strike sparks off each other, they begin to matchmake, to much dismay from both young people. The well-meaning plotting of Cat's cousin and Fox's sister-in-law set in motion romance and danger.

Watch for my posts on Face Book and upcoming promotions elsewhere. As fall comes whispering in slowly (can't be too slow for me), I've included a new recipe for a stir-together dish you can make up in minutes. All you need is a pound of salsicca sausage and whatever veggies you fancy. Check it out in the Recipe page.

Have a beautiful autumn and stock up on good books for the winter months.


Happy reading,
