O is for Oscar Isaac

I don't know about you, but I thoroughly enjoyed the new Star Wars movie, The Force Awakens, if for no other reason than that it introduced me to two actors I've enjoyed becoming obsessed with: Adam Driver and Oscar Isaac. Oscar starts with O, so I'll be focusing on him today. When I get obsessed, I can pretty quickly work my way through an actor's entire filmography. And Os...

A to Z Challenge: D is for Dads

It's nowhere near Father's Day, but I happen to be getting on an airplane in a couple days to join lots of family and friends in celebrating my Dad's birthday (his 80th!!). So I soon as I saw I had the letter D, I just had to go with Dad. Dads are an awesome force in our lives--assuming they're good ones, which mine always has been. They protect us, nurture us, challenge us to ...

Teaser Tuesday: The Devil May Care

I'm so thrilled to be bringing this book out into the world. A few years ago, under my other (rather-less-steamy) pen name, it won the Romance Writers of America's Golden Heart Award for Best Historical Romance, and I couldn't wait to get it into readers' hands. Something held me back, though: I loved the story as it was, but the story WANTED to be hotter...after all, it's abo...

Better Than Sex November: Impress the VIPs Spanakopita!!

It's the holidays, and everybody needs some party-ready treats that get attention--and get gobbled up! I love this dish because it smells and looks and tastes fabulous and festive, and looks so complicated, everybody thinks you're a major chef...even though it's actually easy, and perfect for a messy, clumsy cook like me. It works for an eat-with-your-hands appetizer, as a s...

Teaser Tuesday: BARED TO THE VISCOUNT by Lara Archer

Love Pride and Prejudice, but wish Jane Austen had given Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth some uber-hot sex scenes? Me, too. So....here comes my new Rites of May series!! Regency England is so very civilized, so proper, so bound by unbreakable rules. But Springtime has a certain pagan energy that loosens all restraints. The Rites of May has all the wit and passion of Regency romance, b...

Q is for…..Quests!!!

I'm in the midst of plotting out a new book, and thinking about the growth journey my hero and heroine will be on. Some people call that QUEST. Folks who study the structure of effective storytelling often say characters need both an external goal and an internal goal. The external goal is what's most recognizable on the surface as the Quest: slay the dragon, return the One Ri...
