  "With her signature superbly nuanced characters, subtle sense of wit, and richly emotional writing, Gracie puts her distinctive stamp on a classic Regency plot." The Chicago Tribune

Australian and NZ readers — the price special on my last three e-books (from Penguin Australia) is about to run out, so if you want a copy of Bride By Mistake (that Sarah Wendell said nice things about in Fremantle), The Autumn Bride (RITA finalist) or The Winter Bride (ARRA Favourite Historical- see below) now's your last chance to get them at less than $4 (reduced from $14!!)

May- I'm running a short romance-writing course at Kew Library. Over three Thursday evenings, starting at 7pm on 14th May, (and then 21st and 28th May) I'll be at the Kew Library - corner of Cotham Rd and Civic Drive, Kew (in Melbourne) It's free, but you'll need to book here:

The Winter Bride won the award for Favorite Historical Romance in the the ARRA (Australian Romance Readers Association) annual awards. The full list of finalists is here. Thank you to all who nominated and voted for my book and to ARRA for oragnizing it

In other news, Harlequin Sydney is republishing my early Harlequin books later in the year. The e-versions of these have already been available for some time in the USA and Uk, and soon Aussies and NZers will be able to buy both e and paperback versions. Stay tuned. Or sign up to my newsletter to be kept up to date.

And don't forget, I blog each fortnight with the Word Wenches - seven other best-selling, award winning historical novelists from the USA and the UK, so pop in there for a visit. We often get good cconversations in the comments stream.

*Marcus (from the Devil Riders Series)— I'm still getting lots of requests for Marcus's story. I did want to write it, but Marcus was never in the original contract and when it came time for a new contract, my publisher asked me to put Marcus aside and start on the new series. Which I did (because that's what they pay me for.) I still want to write Marcus's story and will when I have time. If you want to be kept up to date, sign up for my newsletter (in the left-hand column.) I only send out occasional newsletters when I actually have news, like a new book or a price reduction or something like that, so you won't get bombarded.

The Winter Bride - an excerpt:
When his best friend Max asks our hero, Freddy to keep an eye on his aunt and her nieces while Max is away — and attend their regular literary society meetings, Freddy is appalled:

“Not the literary society. The horror stories those girls read are enough to make a fellow’s hair stand on end.”

Max frowned. “Horror stories? They don’t read horror stories, only entertaining tales of the kind ladies seem to enjoy, about girls and gossip and families—”

“Horror stories, every last one of them,” Freddy said firmly. “You asked me to sit in on their literary society last month, when you went up to Manchester, remember? The story they were reading then . . .” He gave an eloquent shudder. “Horror from the very first line: It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife. Must he, indeed? What about the poor fellow’s wants, eh? Do they matter? No. Every female in the blasted story was plotting to hook some man for herself or her daughter or niece. If you don’t call that horror, I don’t know what is!”

Max chuckled.

“You can laugh, bound as you are for parson’s noose in the morning,” Freddy said bitterly, “but every single man in that story ended up married by the end of the book! Every last one.” He numbered them off on his fingers. “The main fellow, his best friend, the parson, even the soldier fellow ended up married to the silly light-skirt sister—not one single man in that story escaped unwed.” He shuddered again. “Enough to give a man nightmares. So, no literary society for me, thank you.”
