It's Finally Here!

"It's funny, I think, how far we'll go to flee our ghosts and how much we'll do to protect our secrets..." (from Lost in Paradise by Allie Boniface)

I'm thrilled today, because it's the day for my very first ever book to be released in print:

When high-society, Harvard grad Ashton Kirk moves to the sleepy town of Paradise to escape a family scandal, Eddie West, the town’s most eligible bachelor, takes notice. In one steamy summer, two people from different worlds discover that, sometimes, you can find your soul mate in the place you least expect.

Readers say:

Lost in Paradise is one of the best reads I've had for ages. With well-drawn characters and an interesting storyline I found it hard to put down. Allie kept the momentum going right until the end. (Rosalie)

What a great love story. All Ashton ever wanted to do was live her life like she wants. All Eddie wanted to do was forget the past. The future is theirs to have, if they let it happen. (Dru)

So if you haven't already ordered your copy from Amazon, hurry over to The Wild Rose Press today and treat yourself!** (And maybe get it onto the best-selling lists again, over there) I'll even send you an autographed bookplate for inside...just email me and ask :)
**Note: Since I post pretty early in the morning, as of right now the cover is linked to the ebook page...keep checking back for the print version - it should be there soon!!

I'm posting the trailer for this book here again, 'cause I do love it, the music especially, and it's been a while since I've looked at it.

Finally, I'm happy to announce the winner of today's Lost in Paradise giveaway: Amy Addison! She'll receive a signed copy of the book, along with some other goodies. Amy, just email me at with your address, and your prize will be on its way. And thanks for commenting!

Now I'm off to celebrate!!
