I have worked as an attorney, winery tasting room manager, and retail business owner, but nothing beats the thrill of writing humorously-ever-after romances.

I reside in New England, although I fantasize about spending the rest of my days in a tropical locale, wearing flip flops year-round, or in Regency London, scandalizing the ton.

I can usually be found on Twitter talking about writing and coffee, and on Facebook at www.facebook.com/Donna.Cummings.Author, talking about coffee and writing.

Hi Deborah!

I think I would start by asking if you like contemporary or historical, to narrow down your choices. They're both humorous and romantic, but historical doesn't work for everyone. :)

For contemporary, I think BAD EX KARMA is really fun. So is I DO...OR DIE, which adds a mystery to the humorous romance mix. There's also a free novella, SUMMER LOVIN', which can give you a taste of things.

For historical, LORD RAKEHELL'S LOVE is a novella that starts off a series where Aphrodite tries to play matchmaker in Regency England (with slightly disastrous results).

Hope this helps! Let me know if you need other suggestions!(less)

First on the Scene: Bad Ex Karma

This book is a first for several reasons. It was the first contemporary I wrote. I started my writing career with traditional Regencies, and one of them (not yet published) was a Golden Heart finalist. Not long afterwards, the Regency market started to die out, and self-publishing didn't exist then. I was rather discouraged by the publishing possibilities at that time, and since my life was hea...

Donna Cummings Melissa, thanks so much! I'm really glad you enjoyed Lord Midnight. I hope Lord Wastrel will be coming out early in 2013. I had to set it aside for two contemporaries that are releasing soon. One is coming out on December 10th. The other one will be out in April. So I hope to get back to Lord Wastrel and some other stories that have been waiting patiently for me!


Melissa Clark Hi. I just finished Lord Midnight and I wanted to let you know it was amazing. When is Lord Wastrel coming out? The preview at the end of lord Midnight has me intrigued. You are an amazing author and I can't wait to read more of your books.
