THE MILLIONAIRE ROGUE, book #2 of THE HOPE DIAMOND TRILOGY, comes out in a little less than two months (!!), which means reviews are starting to roll in.


Full disclosure: I feel MUCH more confident about the marketing/publicity part of launching this book versus THE GENTLEMAN JEWEL THIEF.  I learned quite a bit in the past few months – mostly that I had no idea what I was doing that first time around – so I’m hoping MILLIONAIRE will come out with a bang after all the blog tour stops/signings/mailings/etc. I’ve been putting together over the past few months.

Now that the reviews are starting to roll in for book #2, I thought I’d share them.  They are both LOVELY, and I am so grateful these gals took the time to read and post thoughtful reviews of Sophia and Thomas’s story.

First up: Kilts and Swords

“That is when you know the story is one that has you hooked. You laugh at funny elements and are nervous for the tense, scary parts that make you worry for the characters. The plot is well developed and the secondary characters are a riot. Madam is a wonderful character – she has lived a very rich life and she is a very complex character and one of the only that both Sophia and Thomas know independently of each other. Sophia’s cousin Violet is a wonderful character and adds some realism to the story. The Earl of Harclay is a snarky, sneaky man who you can’t decide if you hate him or like him half the time. Sophia’s mother seems to spend most of her time fainting and in bed from her hijinks. Mr. Lake is a very complicated and interesting character and he’s like a shadow – one minute there and the next gone. All the characters really enhance the story and make it a believable plot and add more emotion and gravity to the story.”

Guys, I died when I read this review.  And almost cried.  Check it out!

The Eater of Books!

“Ooo, the romance. Thomas and Sophia sizzle right off the page, despite Thomas avoiding women for some time now, and Sophia being a virgin. The two of them click instantly, at least physically. Sophia has Thomas wrapped around her finger by the end of the book, even though she convinces herself that that isn’t what she wants. She should do her daughterly duty, right…”

That DEFINITELY made my Monday a little brighter.
