I'm a long-time, award-winning novelist, perhaps best known for my Regency Romances, two of which have earned Rita Awards from Romance Writers of America. I've also been writing Mormon-themed novels, as well as historical fiction for Harlequin and CamelPress in Seattle. Coming in August will be The Double Cross, the first in a romantic suspense series about a brand inspector in the royal colony of New Mexico in 1680, and his "sudden wife." They live on a land grant on the edge of Comancheria, probably the most dangerous place in North America. They need their wits about them to survive, and more courage than most people even dream about.Also coming in August is Safe Passage, a novel about the Mormons living in colonies in Mexico in 1912 who were forced to flee because of the Mexican Revolution. It's the tale of one man who returns to find his estranged wife, who did not get out with the other colonists.I love to write. The whole process still fascinates me, even after some 34 novels and some non-fiction work. I'm still learning with every book.

Well as snow falls in Ireland Christmas stories are somewhat apt. The first story is one of a Naval Captain who remembers a woman who nursed him when he fell ill. 10 years later he gets the letter he was waiting for, much of it water damaged, but the gist of the letter is that she says yes. So he...

She smiled, and James felt his heart turn. Lt. James Trevenen spent 5yrs marooned on an island. Susannah Park married below her station, had her husband die before she even gave birth, and has been ostracized ever since. Maybe because I recently read one of her books, this felt like a Balogh wit...

My review contains spoilers and they're mostly my thoughts... The latest Carla Kelly that I read, Miss Whittier Makes A List, was one of those I was finishing up from her “Miss” series. Well, there’s no series titled like that but she’s got quite a few older Regency romances having titles with a “Mi...

My review contains spoilers and they're mostly my thoughts... Miss Billings Treads the Boards, a clean regency romance, is another one of Carla Kelly’s single novels where I went in blindly. I liked it for the most part because there were some really witty dialogues throughout. However, it won’t be ...
