Friday Fun Facts: Come Visit Lindsey Point With Me!

BEACON OF LOVE is releasing this month!

Welcome to Lindsey Point, Connecticut: suspicious of outsiders, loyal to tradition, and absolutely devoted to its local legends. Enter Sophie Smithwaite, travel show host, in town to film an episode about Lindsey Point’s haunted lighthouse. But digging into the story of a tragic murder-suicide and love gone wrong reveals startling connections to Sophie’s own past. 

When a gorgeous local handyman fills in behind the camera, Sophie’s life gets complicated by more than just her family history. Part-time paramedic, handyman, seasonal Santa... Lucas Oakes does it all--except get attached. He’s still reeling from the death of his best friend ten years ago and the more recent infidelity of his ex-fiancee. 

Yet despite Sophie’s big-city nosiness and her insistence on chasing long-dead ghosts, he’s drawn to her. But mixing with an outsider means questioning people and traditions Lucas has always defended. When a series of attacks seem to be connected to Sophie’s investigation, both Sophie and Lucas must decide if they are willing to risk everything to uncover the town’s secrets...and their own.


So I was thinking the other day, wouldn't it be neat if my readers could virtually "visit" the town of Lindsey Point before they read the stories of Lucas and Sophie and Finn and Aubrey? I've been playing around with this for a few days...nothing fancy, just fun. Just click on the book cover above, then select your full screen option (lower right corner of the presentation screen). To move from spot to spot, just click on the arrows at the bottom of the screen. Please let me know what you think!

Monday Mentionables: Design Updates

Well, if you're here reading my blog, you'll probably notice a change in its design. My very talented web designer, Jo of Glass Slipper Web Design, updated not only my blog but my website AND the header for my Facebook page. I think they're gorgeous! She used the cover of the super-sensual The Promise of Paradise cover as a model, and I think it matches the tone of my books terrifically. What do you think of the new look?

Plus, if you haven't yet signed up for my newsletter, make sure you do that while you're over at my website. I'll have 2 releases coming up in the next couple of months, and I want to make sure all my readers know when they'll be available! Stay tuned for the beautiful new cover of Beacon of Love, as well!
