Y'all know I like to highlight my friends' books here sometimes and give you recommendations for new authors to try. In this case, I was a huge fan first--friendship came later! I don't know how many of you read historical romance, but I love it. And no one, literally no one, is doing it better these days than Sarah MacLean. She combines a thoroughly modern sensibility with all the passion, angst, alpha heroes, and witty banter you used to see in classic historical romance. I was lucky enough to read Scot early (because I begged really pathetically) and let me tell y'all, it's amazing. A historical re-imagining of a current scandal we've seen all too many times--the unauthorized release of nude photos of a woman who trusted the wrong man. It's also a guardian/ward romance, which happens to be one of my favorite kinds, and the hero, Alec, has a dark secret of his own. Watching these two lonely hearts find their way to one another amid scandal, outlandish inheritances, and a Regency-era girl squad is pure joy. I can't recommend this one highly enough! It can totally be read on its own, without reading any of Sarah's other books--but why not try them all? ; ) ... See MoreSee Less

I just turned in my revisions for HOME AT LAST, the second of my back-to-back releases for next winter...and y'all. I know we're not supposed to have favorites. It's like a parent having a favorite child! And yet...I think HOME AT LAST might be my very favorite Sanctuary Island novel yet. I laughed and cried while revising it. I'm so happy right now--i only wish I didn't have to wait until March to share it with all of you! ... See MoreSee Less
