These days have been busy, sometimes hectic, but very fruitful. Every Monday, I blog with USA TODAY's Happy Ever After, an online column featuring romance fiction and its authors. I do enjoy reading all those wonderful books and chatting with authors. Stop by every week for my Monday recommended reads.

Next up on my list of accomplishments: RACING HEARTS -- my December Kimani Romance.

Dedicated doctor Erin Wilson lives her life cautiously—the opposite of Marc Newton, world-famous race-car driver and her newest patient. Resisting the seductive millionaire playboy's advances takes sheer grit, but Erin's determined to keep him off the track so he can heal from an old injury. Marc is set on racing again…and winning her heart.

Marc's relentless drive to win is second nature. But his world is turned upside down when a fiery crash sidelines him from the sport he loves. As Erin works her soothing, sensual healing, Marc has a new goal. With his career and legacy at risk, Marc's suddenly competing in the most important race of his life…to finish first with Erin!

Also check out my Q&A with USA TODAY's HEA blog where I was the one answering, instead of asking, the questions.

RACING HEARTS is available in book stores and online at the major e-retailers.

Last bit of news...for the moment: SCANDAL, SECRETS AND SEDUCTION is my first e-book published with Amazon and Barnes & Noble. This re-release (formerly Open Your Heart) is also significantly re-edited to create a new series.

Welcome to the Thornton family. On the outside, they are the ideal unit. On the inside, high-level drama runs through the family’s veins.Will Shelly Bishop bring them down? Will they let her? Let the sparks fly.

Past Desire…

Years ago, nurse Shelly Bishop didn’t escape a brutal assault by someone she trusted. She was determined to continue rebuilding her shattered life and confidence, but she never expected that her new patient would be the father of old acquaintance Justin Thornton—or that the brief desire she and Justin once shared would become dangerously irresistible passion.

Forever Love…

Burned by betrayal and heartbreak, Justin had put his entire life into his family’s banking empire and swore to stay clear of emotional complications for good. Little by little, however, he found himself drawn to Shelly’s gentleness and quiet honest—and hoped for a chance to lay both their unhappy pasts to rest. Now, with buried secrets, threat of scandal and a ruthless business rival, Justin and Shelly must risk their fragile trust to at last find the love of a lifetime.
