December News & Goodies

Hi Romance Lovers,

Happy December and end of a decade! Where has the time gone? It seems to me we were worrying about everything crashing when we switched from the 1900s to the 2000s and now we’re two decades in.

I  am very excited about the release of the second book in my Merry Misfits of Bath series, The Courtesan’s Daughter and the Gentleman. I already have 12 reviews on Goodreads with a total star count of 4.92. Everyone seems to love my hero, Carter, in that book.

Here is a holiday picture of the Twinadoes. What do you think-- did Santa put them on the nice list or the naughty list?

Let me tell you about Callie's Reading Corner.

I would love to have you join my Readers Facebook Group. There we share jokes, memes, funny stories and comments on life. I run contests and post deleted scenes from books and extended epilogues for some of my books. You will also see family trees for my various series (and the names of all the children born of these loving couples), as well as posts to help me name characters. You’ll be the first to see new covers and hear about sales and new releases. That is also where I build my ARC reader list. If you would like to join us for fun and games, click here .

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
