      What's new for me in 2022? So far three releases, Lyon in the Rough, my third book in the Lyon's Den series, and The Treasure of Love and The Dance of Love, books thirteen and fourteen in the popular Book of Love series that asks the question: what makes a man fall in love? I hope you are loving all those big, brawny Brayden heroes and the strong but utterly lovable heroines who tame them, many of them Farthingales (those heroines cannot seem to keep out of trouble). For those of you who have been following this series, I hope you've enjoyed the lighthearted fun as this mysterious book known as The Book of Love guides each hero or heroine to their true love. These are all stand alone stories, but why not start at the beginning with The Look of Love? When the book falls on Olivia Gosling's head while she's browsing in a London antiquarian bookshop, she is determined to use it to help herself find true love. She's going to test the 'love recipes' out on someone she considers safe, Alexander Beastling (Beast to his friends), the daunting Duke of Hartford. He saved her from drowning when she was a little girl and they've been friends ever since. What do you think happens next?

      In September 2022 I'll be at the Historical Romance Retreat taking place September 28, 2022 - October 2, 2022 at the Westgate Hotel in San Diego, California. Special treat, Julia Quinn will be there as well for the book signing. If you enjoy being swept back in time, this is the perfect event for you. I will be one of the participating authors and look forward to seeing many of my readers there. 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 meddlesome family thrown in, then the Farthingale series and the Book of Love series are for you. Don't be surprised to find characters from each series appearing in the other because I love to mix and match them.

      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. 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 realm of 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. And who is your favorite bad boy? Is it the Fae king? Or those hunky Dragon Lords?

      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."
