ADAM'S TEMPTATION (Book One)
The Romance Reviews Best Book of 2011 Nominee for
Contemporary Romance
Heat Index: Spicy


Millionaire professor, Adam Brant is hiding from life. When his broken engagement is plastered all over the papers and tabloids, he retreats to the only place he's ever felt he belonged--his late grandmother's lighthouse in Briny Cove, Florida. He vows to live in seclusion away from nosy reporters, money-hungry women and people who can't accept him for who he is.

Ambitious wanna-be journalist, Megan O'Conner is stuck in Briny Cove, living with her family, struggling to finish her degree and working odd jobs. When she finds out the new tenant in the old lighthouse is Adam Brant, Megan believes she's found her ticket out. But as she becomes better acquainted with the sexy professor, everything changes. Will she choose the exclusive story or the man who has stolen her heart?


TEXAN UNDERCOVER (Book Two)
Contemporary Romantic Suspense Novel
Heat Index:  Spicy


Sparks fly and computers crash when Claire Maxwell's cybercafe is used for criminal activities. She's thrown into the midst of an undercover operation and doesn't like it one bit. She really doesn't like being thrown in the company of the hot private eye handling the case. Claire doesn't believe in love or happily ever after anymore. Can the handsome P.I. change her mind?

Dillon Anderson needs Claire's help to stop a dangerous corporate hacker. What he doesn't need is the sucker punch of desire whenever she's near. Dillon has always avoided women like Claire, but avoiding this particular woman proves to be an impossible mission. Can he get the job done without getting done in himself?

AUTHOR'S NOTE: Texan Undercover is a fun Retro Read. It certainly was fun to write. I call it Retro because the story is set in 1998. Back in the day before WiFi, Bluetooth, blueray, and flat screen TVs became widespread.There were no smartphones, netbooks, iPods, Kindles or Wii.  MP3s were relatively new and people still watched movies on VHS. Not everyone owned a computer; laptops were mainly used in the corporate world. Tablets were taken for headaches, texting pretty much didn't exist, and internet cafes were becoming popular here and abroad.


MIDNIGHT MY LOVE (Book Three)
Traditional Regency Romance Novel
Heat Index: Sweet


For years, Damien Avenall loved Alexandra Turlington like a little sister; or so he thought until she grew into a lovely and desirable young lady. In a moment of madness, he kisses her and everything changes between them.

Alex often wonders why the dangerous viscount betrayed their special friendship. His kiss awakened her to passion, but she knows better than to give her heart to a libertine. Or does she?

Two Hundred and Fifty Thousand Ebooks Sold and Counting!!!

My Self-Publishing Adventure Continues


I hit a very big milestone last week in my Indie Publishing career. I passed the 250k mark in sales. Two hundred and fifty thousand ebooks sold. That's a pretty astonishing number. It's difficult to wrap my brain around that amount.

Two hundred and fifty thousand!!! Wow!!!

Never in my wildest dreams did I think I'd ever sell that many ebooks. When I started this adventure, I remember hitting one-thousand ebooks sold. I couldn't believe it then, either. And when I hit ten-thousand ebooks sold two months later, my joy knew no bounds.

In August, I will celebrate my third anniversary as an Indie author. During those three years, quite a lot has changed in the publishing landscape. The industry is still in flux, but Indie Publishing is well ensconced. Indie Publishing is here to stay and thrive.

It's hard to grasp the magnitude, the sheer number of ebooks sold around the world; millions of them written and published by Indie authors like myself. Much of the stigma associated with self-publishing has ebbed away. A respectable number of Indie authors are hitting the USA Today and the New York Times Bestseller Lists. WooHoo!!!

The freedom and control that comes with self-publishing is truly liberating, but it isn't easy, by any means. Writing is hard work. Publishing is hard work. Putting out quality books again and again is hard work. But the dividends are awesome.

Every sale is golden. Reaching readers and touching their lives, knowing people are reading and enjoying my books is priceless.

Happy Reading and Writing and Publishing!!!

Anne Marie   :)
