Can music heal a fractured soul?
Or will it tear them apart forever? 

Thirteen years—that’s how long Isabeau Montgomery has been living a lie. After an automobile accident took her mother’s life, Izzy hid herself away, surviving the only way she knew how. Now she is happy in her carefully reconstructed life. That is until he walks through the door of her bar…

Black Phoenix singer/front man Noah Clark came to Long Island City with a goal—one that doesn’t include an instant, electric attraction to the dark-haired beauty behind the bar. Coaxing her into his bed won’t be easy, but he can’t get her pale, haunted eyes nor her skill on the piano out of his head.

Can Noah help Isabeau overcome the past? Or will her need to protect her secret force her back into hiding and destroy their chance at happiness?

Reminder to Pay It Forward by Barbara Edwards

Yesterday Brenda Whiteside blogged about ‘Paying it forward’ on and reminded me that doing the little extra something for someone else makes a difference.
Since I’m a writer, I do most of my ‘paying’ for other authors. I tweet, mention on FaceBook, post on StumbleUpon or just send an email around my loops. I use Triberr, a great tool for promo.
What do I think this does? Hopefully the one extra bit of promo sells another book for them. I like to think it does. I like to think that they’ll do the same for me.
Imagine my shock when an RWA chapter I belong to had someone complain about helping a new author scrambling to get her info out there. I didn’t get on the loop and scold her like I should have. I hate to think the petty remark was from envy or jealousy. I hate to think others agreed with her.  
So what else it there I can do? I add tags, click on likes and comment on blogs when I have extra time.
I tried doing a few reviews but found it’s not one of my talents. I guess I need to try harder, especially when I see so many readers do check the reviews and say they are helpful.
I just wish they were easier to post. There’s Amazon, Goodreads, Shelfari, LibraryThing, Barnes&Noble for the Nook as well as posting it as a blog, and those are only a few places.
I do think that Roses are really helpful. A request for votes gets a response from a number of fellow Roses. A request for tags or likes is met with lots of them.
I’ve asked for some myself.
Do I sound selfish? I hope not. I’d like to think everyone will remember me when my turn comes around, but I can’t count on it. So I ‘pay it forward’ anyway.

P&E Poll Winner: Dear Julia

I am delighted to announce that my Vintage Rose novella, Dear Julia, topped the polls in the annual Preditors & Editors poll, in the Short Romances category.

Dear Julia is set in 1920s England, a gentle story with an Emma-like heroine and a Mr Rochester-like hero.

In the words of Angie from Romancing the Book, "Rosalie likes fixing things – and people. William doesn’t want to be fixed, but he really doesn’t have much say. He underestimates her one time too many, but is soon just as captivated by her as she is with him."

 Storm Goddess Book Reviews gave this book 5 lightning bolts:
"The writing is as airy and bright as Rosalie herself. The characters are drawn with the sure strokes of an accomplished author. The pacing is just right, leading us deeper and deeper into the emotions of two sympathetic people. And the ending is as satisfying as any I’ve read. Dear Julia will wedge itself into your heart."

Thank you very much to all the Wild Rose Press authors and readers who voted for this story!

Dear Julia is available direct from The Wild Rose Press, on Amazon, Amazon UK, Barnes & Noble and All Romance eBooks.

I love romance - especially romance in the ancient world. I suppose it's the excitement of the time period, with all those soldiers running around and the damsel in distress syndrome - except that I like my heroine to be quick-thinking and self-sufficient. No man, no matter how handsome and well-meaning, is equipped to best the woman in my stories. Yes, 'feminism' raises its pretty little head and before you know it the girl is solving the issues and winning the guy. I just can't help myself. Women have to be represented even in the ancient world. So if you like a good story, with equally matched characters, then MAXIMUS is one you'll enjoy. Happy reading on The Wild Rose Press!
