Woohoo! My April release, A KISS TO REMEMBER, received 4.5 stars and a Top Pick! designation from Romantic Times magazine! This is my first Top Pick! and I’m so excited. I mean, I’ll be honest with you, I was beyond thrilled when I found out. I shrieked and jumped out of my chair to run like a chicken with its head off through my office to let everyone I work with know of the amazing news. To their credit, they were full of smiles and congratulations even as I was jabbering like a dingbat.

I’ll share a little of my journey with this particular book. First off, Nora was my favorite heroine. She’s been with me from the beginning of the Emmett’s Mill series, starting off in Father Material with her big sister Natalie and then in Return To Emmett’s Mill with her oldest sister, Natasha. I had a soft spot for the ornery-mouthed brat and couldn’t wait to dig into her story. I thought it was going to be a piece of cake because I knew her so well. Nope. She made me work for every word. And I shouldn’t have expected anything less but now, I see, all that hard work was worth it. Someone loved Nora (and Ben) as much as I did.

A Kiss To Remember (my original title, nonetheless!) hits stores in April. Please check it out. I think you’ll like it. Nora’s not your ordinary heroine. 😉

Happy Writing,
