Hi all!

For about a week now, I've been going on about news to share.  It's finally time I get to spill the beans!!  And I couldn't possibly be more excited.

Let's back up a minute though.

Every writer has a project that is near and dear to his/her heart.  That doesn't mean we like any of our other books any less, or that we think one is somehow better than the other.  It just means we've had an idea that we sat on for a while, and that particular idea occupied a great portion of our time. Or, perhaps, in some cases the particular project stems from something the author is personally vested in (like when my stallion was put on the cover of Waiting for Yes).  And, in even more cases, it might be because where some projects require "work" others seem to flow from word one.

A while back I had an idea that just wouldn't go away.  I let it absorb me, and by the time the Muse stopped to take a breath, I had four novels outlined chapter-by-chapter and characters who wouldn't stay quiet demanding space in my head.  Exhaustion claimed me before the idea took a breather.  Within a short while, I had a full length manuscript out to my beta readers.

It's with many cartwheels that I'm announcing today, that my first historical romance series will make a debut on August 1 of this year with the release of Bound by Decency.  And for anyone who had to put up with me in New Orleans, and took me on the hunt for Absythe, you know what this project is and how excited I was then about it.

I'm thrilled to introduce The Flying Gang, sexy swashbucklers who, depending on the day, might be friends or might be foes.

The Flying Gang Legacy

With Europe in chaos over who would claim the Spanish throne, the Atlantic waters bred a most despicable lot. Privateers who pillaged and claimed, loyal to no country, more thief than noble mercenary. One man would claim Spain’s inheritance. He would pass it on. To a band of cutthroats more terrifying and deadly than the nightmares of the deep.

As the nations settle into peace, The Flying Gang knows no boundaries. No sea is safe. No shore unchartered. Chilling Rogers raised to the sky, they reign with fear, bound only to the wind, the brotherhood, and the ships they love. One tiny jeweled box strikes a gleam in their eyes. A golden trinket four rogue Captains risk danger, capture, and even friendship to possess.

Until love interferes with their rapscallion hearts…

Bound By Decency
The Flying Gang Legacy, Book I
August 1, 2012

Once, Cain sailed with the cutthroats of The Flying Gang, fearless Captain of The Kraken, bound to no one save the sea. After inheriting a portion of Spain’s Royal Inheritance, he resigned the life of brigands for a chance at honest wealth. With the secrets of his piracy tucked away, he achieved his lofty aspirations. But when his partner and best friend betrays him to the Royal Navy, Cain’s dreams are ripped to shreds. He’s left with his ship, the tattered remnants of a stolen future, and a piece of Spanish mystery. Wanted by three nations and destined for the gallows, he returns to the legendary band of buccaneers for one purpose -- vengeance.

Kidnapped by the formidable Cain, India Prescott discovers he intends to kill the man she’s to marry, Richard Grey. Cain’s story reveals betrayal. Treachery that extends to her as well. Although she holds the key to retribution, India refuses to become another man’s pawn. Freedom lies before her, the liberty to shrug off propriety, make her own decisions, and claim her destiny. But when she uncovers goodness in Cain’s soul and he awakens passion in her heart, she must combat the chains of convention once more.

Only this time India's not fighting society. She’s battling a pirate bent on keeping her decency intact.

SQUEE!  My cover art just arrived and I am delighted beyond words.

"Victorians used the term 'limbs' as a euphenism for legs, which were thought to be so sexually exciting to a man, even a glimpse of a table leg could incite him to sexual frenzy. Table skirts were invented to prevent any unnatural unions between men and furniture."
