A B+ review for Mistress by Marriage from Smexy Books begins with “I absolutely adored this book…The combination of the angst, the humor and the naughty romance really makes this book for me.” To read it all, click here. Thanks, Mandi!

Mistress by Marriage was a featured book on the RT Book Reviews website, and it keeps flirting around at the tail end of the Top 100 Kindle historical romances. 🙂

I just turned in the second London List book. And my editor said she loved it! There were times when I didn’t love it–I gave the h/h a whole lot of obstacles to overcome and I think they were mad at me, LOL. Now I’m working on a proposal for something new. I have 3000 words, no title, and I’m iffy about the characters’ names. And the plot? Don’t be silly. Guess I’ll have to come up with one before I send it to my agent.

The Smart Bitches Sizzling Book Club to discuss Mistress by Marriage is set for Tuesday, September 27 from 9-10:30 PM EST. I’ll be there the last half hour to give away some of my backlist books to participants. For more info, go here.

And it’s official. Both London List books will be published (2012? 2013?) with my working titles for them…are you ready?….Lord Craig’s List and Lady Anne’s Lover. Yay!

    Maggie, that is all fantastic news! Congratulations!

    And good luck with the new project. Did I hear you considering a “Mavis”??

      MaRis. When I hear Mavis, I somehow think of the silly saying my father used to say: “Get off the table,Mable, the dollar’s for the beer.” I know Mavis isn’t Mable, but it’s one of those equivalent names for me (Ashley=Heather, Jennifer=Jessica, Tiffany=Brittany,etc). OK, that all sounds nuts, doesn’t it? 😉

        Not nuts at all. I have lots of associations with names! But none with the name “Maris.” If it sticks for your heroine, your book will change that!

        Is this another London List book? That series sounds like so much good unclean fun.

          Yes, it would be if my editor wants it. Just have to write an actual synopsis…pretty impossible for pantser me, but it must be done. 😛
