On Road To Fairbanks


Although I have written more Americana romances than any other, mostly set in the West, I also have a number of trilogies set in England, especially in that perennial favorite the Regency. Such is Book One of my "American Lords" trilogy. Jason Beaumont is a Yankee privateer captured by the British during the War of 1812. He falls heir to an earldom and victim of his matchmaking grandfather who wants to pair the unwilling sea captain with a hoyden named Rachel Fairchild. Neither wants that marriage, or any marriage at all. They connive to outsmart their families with a scheme of their own, which goes badly awry when their antagonism turns to love. If you have not read this book, it's being promoted on BookBub during November. After YANKEE EARL the trilogy continues with REBEL BARON and TEXAS VISCOUNT. If you already have any or all of these books, please tell your friends about the sale. And don't forget the two comic western historical romance novellas that remain free, "Falling in Love" and "Love for Sail."

I know I've been promising to have the second Miami Heat story finished, but Corrie and Cannon keep fighting me and the plot has grown even more complex in a year that has been challenging for the Henkes in many ways: flooding in our home's lower level and Jim's hospital stay and continuing recuperation. Oh, and our son Matt is currently house hunting and has asked mom to help point out pitfalls. Sigh. One of these days, I will get back to full-time writing...and at Jim's insistence, my next book will be a Western historical romance. I promise!

Fall is here and although the weather in the Lou is still warm and beautiful, a hint of color tinges the woods back of our house. To keep with the changing seasons, I am including a new recipe for a favorite of ours, an easy but very tasty slow-cooker combo of pork, kielbasa, kraut and potatoes cooked in beer. Delish and so simple, all you do is layer the ingredients and pour over a can of the beer of your choice. Click on Recipes to find it.

Happy reading as we move nearer to cold weather, Keep warm with a good book!


Happy reading,


American Lords
