CongratulationsLots going on aboard ship, me hearties! The best news and one of the reasons I’ve been absent? I finished The Rogue’s Surrender, Nelson’s Tea Book #3! Yes!!! I can now announce Garrick’s story is finally done! One more pass and I’ll be sending this baby to my editor. Huzzah and Hoorah!!!

Why has it taken so long to get this book written? Good question. I know a lot of my readers have been patiently, or maybe not so patiently, waiting for this book and I apologize profusely for the delay. This was my first published series, with so many loose ends to connect, and I also had a severe case of not wanting to let my characters go. They’ve been such a boon to me and have taken me on a wild ride. It’s been tearing me apart to say goodbye to them. I think that’s what I’ve struggled with the most. Live and learn. Of course, I wanted to write Garrick’s book. He deserves a happily ever after! Of all my characters, he’s the most damaged however. And it’s taken quite the heroine to match him. Sadly, that woman didn’t speak to me for a very long time. That is until now… Oh, I do believe you’ll find Mercedes Catalina Vasquez de la Claremont quite capable of taking on Captain Blade. Woot! I cannot wait to bring this epic, heart-thumping story of swashbuckling adventure and romance to you, dear readers! And the absolute best thing EVAH? All of the Nelson’s Tea characters are in this book!

Stay tuned… Once I do send this book off, I’ll be doing a FABulous cover reveal for The Rogue’s Surrender! This book, packing over 350 pages of epic goodness, is one wild ride from San Sebastian, Spain, to epic sea battles and escapes, to London, and a ball to rival all balls!

Aye, there are magnificent things happening on deck too!
