New Contract!!!!!!!

I just got word from my amazing Samhain editor, Jessica Bimberg, that Samhain Publishing is contracting the next book in my Jamesville series! YAY!

Book 3: THE RETURN OF PATRICK O'ROURKE keeps the same small-town feel of the other two books in the series, but the HEAT factor is much higher.

You may remember Patrick O'Rourke as an eighteen-year old in the first book in the series, DISCOVERING DANI. Well, Patrick has been living in New York for the past decade and working as a detective with the NYPD.

When he is injured in the line of duty, he returns home to Jamesville to recover. He doesn't know if his physical injuries will keep him from returning to the job he loves in New York. As if that wasn't enough, he finds himself attracted to a woman who has problems of her own. He has no intention of getting involved...or so he tells himself.

I'm really looking forward to the release of this book. I honestly think it's my best work to date. I can't wait to find out what everyone else thinks of it too.

I'll keep you posted on a release date. As soon as I know something, I'll shout it from the rooftop.

Thank you Bianca, Renee, Jessie, Kelly, Denise, Reba, Jenn, Rene and Christine. I'm absolutely thrilled and can't wait for Patrick's book to be released.
