Harlequin Intrigue has bought my next two books, to come out in January and February of 2010.

I have no idea what the titles will be, although their working titles are Cowboy Justice and Small Hostage, respectively.

Cowboy Justice is about a man whose determination to find his wife's murderer becomes complicated by his growing feelings for a woman who survived the killer's attack once but has now become the killer's obsession.

Small Hostage is about a female police detective with a tragic past who reluctantly takes on the task of protecting a child targeted for kidnapping. With a past like hers, the last thing she wants to do is fall for the little girl, or the child's sexy, burned-by-love father.

Long Time, No Blog

It's been crazy between work and the holidays, so I've been a bad little blogger. Part of it has been that I'm waiting for a final official offer from my editor on my next two books. I've already received word that an offer is coming, but that hasn't really made the waiting any easier.

On the upside, I'm moving ahead full steam with the first of those two books. So far I've been doing a good job of meeting my daily page totals. Over the weekend, I decided to kick it up a notch and increase my daily totals to see if I couldn't have a rough draft finished by the middle of February and the full, polished manuscript ready to go by the end of February. I really, really want to get a book on the shelves in 2009, and finishing up in February is about the only way to do that.

Did everyone have a good holiday? Mine was pretty good. I got my annual New Year's cold, but it was milder than most I've had in the past. Mucinex is a wonder drug.
