March is sure coming in like a lion here in New York. For my international friends the saying is, March comes in like a lion but goes out like a lamb. This morning I woke up to more snow, and it is still coming down! ENOUGH ALREADY!!! I am starting to go a little nutz being cooped up inside for so long! But the good news is, I’ve been getting a lot of writing done and just passed 50,000 words on Loving You Is Everything, Neve and Rory’s story, the sequel to Loving You Is Easy. That Neve, she’s a feisty one!
Also, I have some exciting news! Well, at least for those of you who enjoy my medical romances. I’ve signed a contract with Harlequin Mills and Boon to write two more books for their Medical Romance line! I’m looking forward to working with my wonderful Harlequin editor, Flo Nicoll, again, and reconnecting with my medical romance readers! They’ll be coming out sometime in 2016. As soon as I have more information I’ll post it here.
Even though my December blog tour is over, you can still check out some fun posts, excerpts from, and interviews about my December 9th, Loveswept Contemporary Romance, Loving You Is Easy. Just scroll down for the links.
She’s a survivor of the front lines of politics. He’s a wounded soldier returning home from the battlefield. Can they place their trust in the power of love?
Nobody plays the role of perfect politician’s daughter better than quiet, respectable math teacher Brooke Ellstein. But she won’t be caught swimming with the sharks again, not after the son of a wealthy donor sinks his teeth into her and gets away with it. Still, political connections have their perks, such as heading up the governor’s “Support Our Troops” pen-pal initiative—and getting first dibs on the smoking-hot sergeant whose picture shakes her right down to her goody-two-shoes.
When corresponding with sweet, classy Brooke, Shane Develen instinctively hides his commando tattoos and blue-collar roots—and he can tell that she’s hiding something, too. But Shane knows he’s gained her trust when Brooke gives him a blisteringly sexy photo. Then he’s injured in an ambush and a fellow soldier posts the snapshot online. Overnight, Brooke’s reputation turns to ashes. Even though he’s totally wrong for her, Shane shows up on Brooke’s doorstep, determined to set things right—and discovers that right or wrong has nothing on the chemistry they share.

Marcus doesn’t shy away from tough subject matter; she embraces it in a real, visceral way that tugs on the reader’s emotions and has you rooting for the characters not just to succeed but to heal, physically and emotionally.
