Hi Lexi, I'm sorry, I somehow missed seeing you question. I usually try to answer questions from GoodReads friends right away!

I'm so happy to hear you enjoyed Shine Like the Dawn. I'm just about ready to turn in my next English historical romance, Across the Blue, which comes out early in 2018. It's set in Kent, England, near Dover. The hero is a pilot who designs airplanes and wants to be the first to fly across the English Channel. The heroine is an aspiring journalist who believes his story will be the ticket to launching her career, but her parents want her to focus on finding a husband, not writing for a newspaper. Lots of fun history tucked into this romantic adventure! Happy Reading! (less)
