About HER WICKED PROPOSAL:
He doesn’t need his eyes to uncover her true beauty.
Cedric, Viscount Sheridan, is cursed. Once the ton’s golden boy, the loss of his sight has left him a reclusive shell of man. His days of womanizing, horse racing and pistol shooting lost forever.
Offered the chance to recapture a small part of his old life, he can’t refuse—even if it means accepting the shocking proposal of the infamous ice maiden, Anne Chessley.
Still reeling from her father’s death, Anne’s deepest wish is to avoid the hordes of fortune hunters who will soon be beating down her door. Proposing marriage to Cedric is an act of desperation, his unexpected acceptance a strange and wonderful dream.
His only stipulation: she must respond passionately and wantonly in his bed. Her agreement barely crosses her lips before he begins a sensual assault on the icy walls bitter secrets have built around her heart.
Yet even as they catch a glimpse of true happiness, betrayal is poised to sweep them away on opposing tides of danger.
Warning: Contains an outwardly aloof heroine with a secretly tender heart, a once-notorious rake who isn’t quite as rusty at seduction as he feared, and a band of rogues who join together to make sure happily-ever-afters do come true.

What is the best piece of advice you have ever received in your writing career?
Keep writing. I know it’s simple, but it’s very easy to give up on writing as a dream and walk away.
What is the most embarrassing thing you’ve looked up in the name of research – or what do you think the government has maybe flagged you for?
Gunshot injuries. I have had several heroes and heroines get shot in my numerous books and I needed to know how gunshot wounds would manifest and where to put them to not make the fatal etc.
Which actor/actress would you like to see playing your main characters from HER WICKED PROPOSAL?
Without a doubt Cedric the hero would be played by J.J. Fields. He’s absolutely who I picture. Anne would be played by Anne Hathaway.
What is an unknown fact or fun trivia about HER WICKED PROPOSAL?
Anne the heroine buys a king Charles cavalier puppy for Cedric since he’s a huge dog lover and they name if Forest. It’s modeled exactly after my sister Sara’s dog who has a king Charles with that name and that coloring of light cinnamon brown and white.
