Hello friends,

Thank you so much for your emails and wonderful support. I am so glad that you all enjoyed reading Passionate Bid. Although it was a bit challenging, I have had so much fun writing this story. In Passionate Bid, I got to create Julian Ravenwood’s character, a drop-dead gorgeous character and unfold his story to the best of my ability. Joanie Saint Claire, the heroine in the book and also the woman who drove Julian batty, was such a blast to create. I adore her. She made me laugh and cry while writing this story.

There are so many reasons why I love writing contemporary romance. One is being able to create characters most of us can relate to, whom we can say, “Oh, she’s just like me” or “I can totally dig her.” Each time I create a character, he or she is always a part of someone I know, of myself, or people I happen to see while looking out my window. Because of this, I can dig deeper into their psyche, touch their innermost feelings, and of course, their uninhibited passion.

Passionate Bid is the second book of mine that Red Rose Publishing published. Like Wicked Knight: Knight Brothers Series, Passionate Bid has made it to the bestsellers list on its release day.

It has been such a wonderful experience to write these two books. Tristan Knight, the first Knight I introduced in Wicked Knight is…how did a reviewer say it? Ah, droolworthy. Well, all of them are. I think all of the brothers in this book including their only sister stayed with me. They are almost like real family to me. My own brothers inspired me to create the teasing, bantering scenes.

My next book soon to be released by Red Rose Publishing is an erotic romance under the sub-genre Paranormal. This is a new route for me. Although the characters possess powers to shift into their wolf form, the elements I often use in my contemporary books are still there. The spicy romance and happy ending still exists.

If you have enjoyed Wicked Knight: Knight Brothers Series, Wicked Proposal, Wicked Persuasion, Wicked Night Before Christmas, To Trust a Wicked Man, and Three Christmas Kisses, I hope you’ll give Passionate Bid a try. Let’s share the experience, emotion, conflict, and love that I put in all of these books.

Again, thank you so much for your support. You all keep my dreams alive.
