      Welcome, my friends! So much to tell you about in 2019! One of my favorite events from 2018 was the Historical Romance Retreat which will be held again this year (in Autumn 2019) at the beautiful Mission Inn Hotel & Spa in Riverside, California. HRR is an incredible journey back in time and I cannot gush enough about this magical experience, so if you are out on the west coast and love historical romance, make this a destination for yourself. If you are on the east coast, then Romancing the Gold Coast in one of the historic F. Scott Fitzgerald mansions is the perfect event for you. It will be held in October 2020 and I will be one of the participating authors. I would love to meet you! If you prefer your travels to be through books, then I invite you to join me in the Regency worlds I've created. If you love dashing dukes, glittering ballrooms, and the enchantment of falling in love with lots of laughter, a little mischief and mayhem, and a meddlesome family thrown in, then the Farthingales and the Braydens are for you. You'll be meeting Poppy Farthingale and her sister Violet in 2019. As for the Braydens, those big, very hunky and brawny men, here is more about them: You've met battle-scarred, war hero James Brayden in A Match Made In Duty, a heartwarming story about the power of love to heal a wounded heart. His cousin, Tynan, is Earl of Westcliff, one of the wicked earls in the Wicked Earls' Club series. But will Tynan reform his wicked ways after rescuing Abigail Croft from ruffians outside the Wicked Earls' Club? Hint: yes!! In 2019 you'll also meet Caleb Brayden in Fortune's Dragon. Caleb returns to Regency England as a war hero and is about to meet the woman he is fated to love at the Scarborough Fair. Youll also meet Caleb's equally hunky brother, Marcus Brayden in the Christmas Wicked Earls' Club story called Earl of Kinross. That's who Marcus is now, for he has been awarded the title for his service during the Napoleonic War. Look for more Brayden stories this year with Romulus, Ronan, Joshua, and Finn Brayden.

      2019 is also the year I introduce you to the Book of Love series. What makes a man fall in love? That's what three friends, Olivia Gosling, Poppy Farthingale, and Penelope Sherbourne want to discover. They've found a musty, old book in an antiquarian book shop called The Book Of Love and they are determined to try out its secrets on Penelope's brother Nathaniel and his two friends, Beast and Thad. After all, if the 'recipes' found in this book will work on those men, they'll certainly work on any man. What these young debutantes don't realize is that by using these men as their test subjects, they also run the risk of falling in love with them! The Look Of Love releases on March 27, 2019 - will it reveal the secrets to making a man fall in love with you? Read it and find out! The Touch Of Love and The Taste Of Love will also release in the Spring/Summer 2019. You don't want to miss these funny, romantic stories.

      If you love dukes who happen to be shapeshifting dragons, Fae kings who can also shift into dragons, and Dragon Lords who are bad boys in need of taming, then my Dark Gardens series is for you. Look for more stories in the Dark Gardens series in 2020. Do you dare journey into England's quiet Lake District, to the vicarage of St. Lodore's where bluebell gardens serve as portals into the realm of the Fae and the red mountain known as Friar's Crag is the doorway to the Dragon Lords? An ancient Fae prophecy is about to unfold. Are you up to the challenge? Step into the bluebell garden and find out where it will lead you.

      Just browse through my book list and I'm sure you'll find something fun to read. Earl of Hearts if you're looking for love and adventure in the Scottish Highlands. Pearls of Fire if you're looking to be swept away on a pirate ship sailing to the mysterious island of Buru where the answer to the mythical pearls lies. Or how about some deWolfe connected stories? Bhrodi's Angel, Nobody's Angel, and Kiss An Angel are short reads to pass away a rainy afternoon.

      For me, the fun part about writing is to create the perfect heroine for each of my heroes, to imagine a woman with the heart to love them, the brains to outwit them, and the courage to save them from enemies and often from themselves. The romances I write are historical fiction, but the themes are timeless and universal, about the importance of family, of finding one's inner strength, of forgiveness and kindness, and the magic of romance.

Love Always,

"My Fair Lily is a bona fide page-turner, a delightful Regency historical romance that will leave you clamoring for more from this exciting debut author."
