All of Joan's novels have the same underlying premise: "It's never too late to live happily ever after." Joan lives her happily ever after in the Lone Star State with her hero, her husband. They divide their time between a Houston townhouse and a small house in the foothills of the Texas Hill Country where they grow fruit trees and wine grapes--despite the hordes of tunneling gophers, trespassing skunks, herds of deer, howling coyotes, and the occasional snake or two.

Hurray! I finished the Christmas romance I was writing last month. This morning, Darling Hubby and I had coffee on the front patio because it was COOL! How lovely to finally have an autumn day.

Come Monday, I'll be editing a backlist book--my first published novel from 1993. It's amazing how much contemporary life has changed since then. I started on this edit back in July, thinking it would be easy. Wrong! I could publish it as is and call it a "vintage" romance as several authors have done, but I think readers don't bond to contemporary stories without cell phones, internet, WiFi, etc. So I resigned myself to the fact that it would take much longer than I'd planned.

I also have a couple of short stories to add to my short story series, A MOMENT IN TIME. Oh, and I have a new box set series publishing this month. Look for SWEET AND SASSY SUSPENSE: Deception and Romance. You'll love it!

BOOK BITES 11 is free at all major ebook retailers. This Sampler contains 26 first chapters from the upcoming LOVE, CHRISTMAS 2: Movies You Love Box Set. (Note: My first chapter is a lot different than the one in the book because we had to turn in a first chapter before I'd even written my book. Sometimes, that's how it works in the writing game.) Grab BOOK BITES 11 so you can sample before you buy. LOVE, CHRISTMAS 2 is available to pre-order now for only 99cents.

Burke Winslow needed a wife. But he didn't have his ex, Ally, in mind for the position.

He stands at the altar, ready to marry his business partner in a marriage of convenience. The minister solemnly asks: "If anyone here knows why this man and this woman shouldn't be joined in holy matrimony, let him speak now or forever hold his peace."

A rain-soaked, bedraggled Ally Fletcher limps down the aisle and shouts, "Stop the wedding!"

What follows is a funny, sexy romp that proves when there's love, passion never dies, it just smolders away until you toss some gasoline on it. Burke and Ally provide that gasoline when they find themselves locked in a marriage of--inconvenience.

His cagey grandfather pulls Burke's strings, and her equally cagey grandmother manipulates Ally. Toss in a pretend boyfriend for Ally, and Burke's scorned business partner left at the altar to make for complete chaos.
Can Burke and Ally stop fighting long enough to peel away the layers of the past and discover the truth about their love and passion? Will the truth free them or put them asunder?
