New for April…and beyond!

Here’s what’s new!

1. His Brother’s Bride is set to come out later this week.

Late this week, His Brother’s Bride will be hitting the virtual bookshelves. This makes me both very excited and also very sad as it is the last Banks book I’ll write (for now).

With this occasion swiftly approaching, I’ll post my husband’s oh-so-helpful editing suggestions as well as a brief scene/excerpt this week!

2.  RT is swiftly approaching and I’d LOVE to see you there!

May 1-5 I will be in Kansas City for the RT Booklovers Convention. Come find me in Club RT on Weds. May 1st from 1-1:30pm or Thursday May 2nd from 2 to 2:30; or at the Indie Expo on Thursday May 2nd from 4 to 6pm. I will be signing books and giving away lots of nifty things so come see me! 

For more information about the RT Convention, please visit their website.

I also have something else in the works, so if you plan to go, drop me a line and I’ll let you know what I’m scheming when I have more concrete details!

3. Buy a Groom and help a cause!

Starting on May 1st, Brenda Novak will start an auction that will benefit diabetes. This year, I have donated my entire Groom Series in paperback form (signed, of course) along with a writing quill, ink pot, a wax seal and wax, notecards and swag. The starting bid is $3.00, with all the proceeds going to help find a cure for diabetes. If you’d like more information on what I’m donating or to find other items that might be of interest, please go check out the listing page.

4. His Yankee Bride is almost an audiobook!

My narrator has only five chapters remaining before she’s completed with His Yankee Bride.  It’ll be completed early next week and be on sale hopefully by the end of April or beginning of May.

After this book, the next one that should be available will be Her Sudden Groom coming in May or early June.

Older News you might have missed…

1. The audiobook format for His Contract Bride is now available at all outlets.

    Or listen to the sample.

2. Her Reluctant Groom (plus 5 other books) are on sale as a compilation for .99!

Even if you’ve already read Her Reluctant Groom, you might want to take advantage of this because you never know who you might discover. I have gotten together with a few other ladies from our Timeless Quills group and we’ve put together a compilation of six book for the incredible price of only .99!

Here is what is included:

HER RELUCTANT GROOM by Rose Gordon ~ Marcus Sinclair, sixteenth Earl of Sinclair, has lived the last thirteen years as a recluse following an accident that left him heavily scarred. Though a recluse, Marcus has still managed to fall in love. The problem? The woman he’s taken with is none other than the sister of the lady he was once betrothed to!


TO WALK IN THE SUN by Jane Charles ~ Hiding from a dangerous man, Tess Crawford thought The Wiggons’ School for Elegant Young Ladies would be the perfect place to disappear. Vincent Latimer, Viscount Atwood, is not a vampire and He wishes the book, Wake Not the Dead, had never been written. When a storm thrusts Tess into Vincent’s path and destroys the school, both of their pasts collide.


A SCANDALOUS PURSUIT by Ava Stone ~ A very proper English lady has all her plans for the future disrupted when she innocently stumbles headfirst into a compromising situation with a very improper English duke.


MORE THAN A GOVERNESS by Jerrica Knight-Catania ~ Becky Thorn has been keeping a secret for more than seven years. A secret that could destroy her. So before she gets too ensconced in London society, she accepts a position as a governess for a reclusive Viscount, far away from the ton.


THE DEVIL’S DAUGHTER by Suzie Grant ~ A bounty hunter facing his past

Gade Ryder returns to Eden, Texas, after twelve years to investigate a gang of rustlers on the family ranch. Had he accepted the job out of misplaced family loyalty or was it the compelling mystery of the devil’s daughter keeping him in the one place he didn’t want to be? Confronted by the memory of his mother’s suicide and the father he blames for her death, Gade finds himself seeking comfort from the one woman he couldn’t trust.


THE HEALING TREE by Amy De Trempe ~ Lady Lilian Bliant is determined to thwart her manipulative father’s plan to shackle her to a weak-willed man of the ton. Lord Maxwell Warrick is anything but weak-willed, yet Lily wreaks havoc on his heart. Will their differences be put aside and will Lily one day accept his faith as her own and Max as her husband.


This compilation will only be available for a short time and can be snapped up (or stolen!) at the following locations:


In the comment section, name a secondary character of mine who hasn’t yet received a book (Henry doesn’t count) that you’d like to see get their story along with a brief explanation (one to two sentences) of why you’d like to read their story (or why you think they deserve one) and you’ll be entered to win one of 15 digital copies of the Timeless Quills Timeless Collection I’ll be giving away and entered into the Grand Prize of an ARC of His Bother’s Bride. This is open Internationally and entries will be collected until 12pm CST April 2, when the winners will be selected and notified.

  1. I listened to the audio. Makes me want to read the book again, read not listen. I never go away long enough for audio…although maybe I could work on the computer while listening. Nah, my mind isn’t that multi-purpose 🙂

    1. LOL I can’t listen to the audio and do work, either. I can multitask in other ways, and can even listen to music while I write, but I can’t listen to one story and write another.

  2. You are one busy bee! 🙂

    I would like to see Marjorie Reynolds’ story. There seems to be an air of mystery around her and I would like to see the whole story of how her family got to where they are (in terms of going from wealthy to poor) and her history with Gabriel.

    1. I have and I forgot to make one other (rather important) announcement. *sigh*

      I started writing that story last July, but stopped at about 2,000 words because I really needed to finish the books I’d already promised before tackling that one.

  3. I wish I was able to come see you in KC, but work won’t let that happen. Boo. 😦

    As far as secondary character stories, I would be curious about Olivia’s child’s story (the one adopted by Marcus and Emma). Not really a secondary character but I wonder what his reaction to his real mother would be!
    Although, the other suggestion of Marjorie is a great one.

    1. Ah, that awful thing called work.

      You’re not the only one who has wanted to see Jack (Olivia’s son) get his story. It’s a possibility, and would certainly open up the possibility to a whole new generation of the Banks family.

    1. I do have to wonder why everyone thinks Gabriel and Marjorie would make a match. Perhaps, they could each find their own…

      Yeah, there’s something going on with Henrietta. What it is, though, I don’t know.

  4. I have already purchased this Collection, and have finished Marcus and Emma’s story, and am half way through To Walk in the Sun. I didn’t realize when I got it that I had already purchased two of the three stories that are the companions to Marcus and Emma’s story, the only one I haven’t yet read is the last one. Not sure how I missed that Marcus and Emma adopted Olivia’s baby. As for a story, I think Olivia should fall in love with her blacksmith. It would serve her right.

    1. Ha! Olivia truly deserves an awful fate.

      In Her Secondhand Groom she has her child that Marcus and Emma adopt, then she has to go live at the asylum. So…unless she breaks out or finds love in there, I’ve written myself into a tight spot with her.

  5. That is so cool about that auction. I wonder if I would help more by donating something to them or by bidding on stuff. Or both! Since I found out I had diabetes, this is kind of close to my heart. My mom and both grandmothers had it. I feel so sorry for those with Type 1 diabetes, because that can’t be controlled with diet. They are insulin dependent, often at a very young age. That will be their life unless a cure is found.

    1. You can still donate things.

      Although, like you, I’d probably do more good bidding on other items, too. LOL

      Bob and I are planning to do a 70 mile bike ride to raise money diabetes this June. I’m fairly certain that will bring in more money for the cause than my donation to this auction. *grin*

  6. I would love to hear more about Marjorie! I think the story of her and Gabriel getting together (because you know they would) would be awesome! If not her then I agree again about Jack or any of the the Ramsey girls, I think they would be a great little series.

    1. Strangely, I’d never thought about Patrick’s girls as adults. Could you imagine the fits they’d give him during their Seasons!

      Jack seems more popular than I thought he’d be. I’m rather surprised. I’ll keep thinking on it.

  7. I’d like to read the back story about Elizabeth, Andrew’s mom, because that info about her background sounds fascinating.

    1. Ironically, I started writing this story once, too. I will admit though that I stopped just a few thousand words in because I was concerned that people wouldn’t want to read about a 50-something year old woman finding love (and being intimate).

  8. I thought I left a comment here yesterday but obviously it didn’t post. It wasn’t important, just that I was a little scared of what you were scheming for RT. Not sure about who I would want to read about. Elizabeth would have been nice but agree with what you said about it. It would have been a good secondary story mixed into another one of your books. I’ve seen that done a lot with the parents of characters before.

    1. Oh, you never know what I’m up to!

      In the story that I started for Elizabeth, it’s more of a “story after the story” for my first series in which she falls in love.

  9. I know I’m late for the giveaway but still I want to say that I’ve always wanted to read the story of Juliet’s sister from “Her Secondhand Groom”. Rose, I think that you owe all of your fans an exclusive story of “Lady O”. Don’t you?

Share your thoughts--I'd love to hear them!
