My table’s set for my Valentine’s Day dinner party, and I’m looking forward to talking about my favorite subject: romance! We’ll have a lot of fun discussing subjects like, “Where was your first kiss?” and “How did you know you were in love?”

Benedict Brothers Series

Invincible, the second book in my Benedict Brothers series, has a new cover! You can get all three books in the series by clicking here and going to the Benedict Brothers tab just below the heading “Books in reverse chronological order.” Outcast, the first in the series, features the American branch of the Benedict family. Set in London and Rome respectively, Invincible and Unforgettable feature the British Blackthornes.  Bella Benedict, The Duchess of Blackthorne, has one dying wish: to see her five children happily married. As she plots to entangle her playboy son with his old flame, Bella’s plans get more complicated than even she imagined.
