<span style="font-size: small;">&nbsp;Dear Reader,<br /><br />I've been gobsmacked! I hit the New York Times
Bestseller List last year! Talk about a milestone. Hugs and thanks for
making this possible. I could never have done it without you.<br /><br />It's
 been seven years since I left my job as a Development Director at a New
 England Prep School to become a full time writer, and I am still loving
 the daylights out of it.<br /><br />I didn't always know I wanted to be a
writer, but I discovered Jane Eyre soon after I got my first library
card. I was eleven and put a romantic spin on every story I read. I
wrote romances about friends and their boyfriends. Racy stuff for which
my friends' mothers did not thank me.<br /><br />When my children were
young, I jotted plot ideas on corners of envelopes, recipe cards, and
such, and threw them in my nightstand. After discussing a romance novel
with my teenaged daughter, she challenged me to write one of my own.
That day, I sorted through my plot ideas, picked one, and started. I
didn't know what I was doing, but I had a good time. Then I made my
first sale. <br /><br />As a writer, I've journeyed to Regency England;
Victorian Amish America, twenty-first century Salem, Massachusetts,
Newport, Rhode Island, and Mystic, Connecticut. I started by falling in
love and now I'm solving mysteries. I've befriended a host of sassy,
sexy witches who tantalize and torment the dishy men in their lives.<br /><br />Hopefully, those same characters, witches and rogues alike, will make some magic for you.<br /><br />My
 books are available in ebook, trade paperback, mass market paperback,
and audio book formats. Recently I re-released The Rogues Club, a series
 of Regency Historical Romances. UNDENIABLE ROGUE, UNFORGETTABLE ROGUE,
UNMISTAKABLE ROGUE &amp; UNTAMABLE ROGUE They're Unputdownable.<br /><br />After
 the Rogues came the Scoundrels: SEA SCOUNDREL, CAPTIVE SCOUNDREL,
PROPER SCOUNDREL &amp; HOLY SCOUNDREL, all available for your reading
pleasure.<br /><br />My all-time favorite authors are Agatha Christie, Jane Austin and Charlotte Bronte.

 BEES IN BED is a new and improved version of&nbsp;Naked Dragon. One minor
character was replaced by another from my backlist so as not to use
characters from books still owned by Random House. This is a STEAMY
Contemporary Romantic Fantasy. I did a complete rewrite, making
improvements, guided by many of the critiques I found in your reviews.
It has been re-edited by a professional. A sincere thank you to my
wonderful readers who took the time to review the original with positive
 reinforcement and constructive criticism.</span></div>
