I didn't notice that I had a question. The Golden Heart experience is like none other, isn't it? 2005--was that Reno? Reno was my first conference. I'm actually reworking my GH book right now.

Diamond in the Rogue has arrived!

Julia and Rayne’s Story is Here!

Diamond in the Rogue, the third book in my Lords of Chance series, has finally arrived! It’s a story that I’ve been waiting to tell since I first conceived of Julia while writing Scandal in Spades.

“He cradled her burning cheek and his rough fingers chafed. He radiated more heat than a bustling inn’s kitchen—and his warmth was every bit as alluring. Comfort, his body promised. Care and sustenance.”
Wendy LaCapra, Lady Vice

“The Maximilian of her memory ceased to exist next to the real man. The former was a simple penny-lute tune. In the flesh, Max was the King’s Theater orchestra playing Haydn.”
Wendy LaCapra, Lady Vice

“Maddening, he was. And oh-so-attractive, blast her penchant for mysterious eyes.
…and muscular thighs.
…and squared shoulders.
…and a scent so enticing she wanted to take a bite out of his shoulder.”
Wendy LaCapra, Lady Scandal

“She whispered his name—the name he had never been called until he had found her here. The consonants shivered across his skin, an incantation marking him as hers.”
