I have the 2014 release schedule. YAY!! At the end of February, THE TRAP (prequel) will be coming out followed in the Spring by TRAPPED (novel). These two new adult romances tells the story of Mitch & Paige's tumultuous romance.
In March THE ROAD TO TEMPTATION (prequel) gives readers the history of Rhys & Meghan's (of TWICE THE TEMPTATION) "courtship". In the summer, A WICKED TEMPTATION (novel) will give you the rest of their stormy and passionate romance. ;)
And don't forget to check out the new covers!

Good news, not only do I have a set date for the release of Twice the Temptation--November 18, 2013--but it's also available for pre-order on Amazon and Kobo.
I'll keep you up to date on more pre-order sites as they come.

My first new adult (college-set) romance When in Paris... is now available!
It is the first book in my Language of Love series. Look out for Those Nights in Montreal, a Language of Love enovella starring Rebecca and Scott, which should be coming out Spring of 2013.
If you're wondering about Twice the Temptation, I plan to release it Summer of 2013. What about Troy and April's story, April in Milan (formerly Love Italian Style)? Look out for it Fall 2013.

An Heir of Deception is currently with my editor. I'm later than I thought I would be at this point. The release date is now scheduled for May 1, 2012. I know this will disappoint many of you and you have my most sincere apologies. I just want to make sure this is the best possible book I can put out. While I wait to get the book back, I'm starting work on my next two projects (Unnamed contemporary and Catherine and Lucas's book, Twice The Temptation). If you'd like to be kept up-to-date with release dates and blurbs, please sign up for my newsletter.

I hate to announce yet another delay in the release of An Heir of Deception but that's what I'm doing. I can't give you a release date, all I can tell you with absolute certainty is that it will be released sometime in 2012. Again, I apologize to all of you keenly anticipating its release.
~September 10, 2011
Instead of releasing An Heir of Deception during the Thanksgiving/Christmas timeframe, it will be released January 2012. For all those disappointed, I apologize for the delay.

Check out the German cover.

All's Fair in Love & Seduction is finally out and available for purchase! I'm nervous and relieved all at the same time. The digital copy is available for purchase on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Goodreads, All Romance eBooks, Smashwords and on sale for $1.99 on The Season. :)
~March 27, 2011
WOOOHOOOO! A Taste of Desire hit the #1 spot on Amazon's Top 100 Historical Romance list.
This is huge for me. More than I expected and could ever hope for. I'm over the moon. I'm also celebrating by giving away a Kindle on The Season Blog. Just comment to enter.

SQUEEEEE!!! I'm a #1 Bestselling Author
Okay, so I'm not talking the New York Times or the USA Today Bestseller's List, but to me, it's the ebook equivalent. :) For the week ending 1/9/2011, A Taste of Desire is the #1 Romance book on BooksOnBoard bestseller's list and I'm the #5 Top Romance Author.
Nine days after the release of her second novel, Beverley Kendall has made it onto BooksOnBoard Top Five Authors list; A Taste of Desire debuted at #7 on last week's Bestselling Romance ebooks list, and this week has attained the #1 slot... More
~December 18, 2010
Today I posted the book trailer for A Taste of Desire! It's the very first book trailer I've ever done and I had tons of fun with it. It's nothing professional so watch it with your expectations properly low. ;)
~November 25, 2010
Happy Thanksgiving! Do you like the new look? I love it! Kimberly Killion of HotDamnDesigns does incredible work doesn't she? In other news, the release of A Taste of Desire (formerly The Gauntlet) is only five weeks away. I can't wait for Amelia and Thomas's story to hit the book stores.
~January 2, 2010
Gave website another facelift to match The Season sites. The release of Sinful Surrender is 3 (three) days away. I'm excited and nervous, especially since I received my first review from RT Book Reviews. Kathe Robin gave it 4 stars and used such terms as "fine voice", "natural wit", "enchanting read", and "fresh and charming debut".
~April 20, 2009
Revamped the website and added brand new excerpts for Sinful Surrender and The Gauntlet. Click the titles to read.
~ January 13, 2009
Just received word from my editor on the new title of my book. Instead of A Lady's Compromise, my first book will be titled Sinful Surrender.
~ December 20, 2008
Gave my ever changing website an overhaul, aka a facelift.
~ October 2, 2008
The Gauntlet placed first in Toronto's Original Golden Opportunity Contest and received a request for the full. Alas, this book has already been sold but it was flattering and heartening to receive the request.

I'm blogging about THE CALL over at RRT(Romance Round Table). Drop by and say hi!
~ September 29, 2008
The first iteration of this website is completed and I can breathe a huge sigh of relief. Now I know why website designers charge so much. Creating a website is very time-consuming. My gratitude to www.iStock.com for all the artwork and photos.
~ September 26, 2008
The notice of the sale of A Lady's Compromise appears in Publisher's Marketplace. Since it's now truly official, I figure Hilary can't say it's a mistake and take back the offer.
~ September 4, 2008
This was the most exciting day of my writing career so far. It's the day I got THE CALL from Hilary Sares at Kensington Publishing. She called to tell me she'd read my first novel, A Lady's Compromise(then named A Midseason Night's Folly), and wanted to buy it. After I got over my absolute shock, I called my sister and screeched and screamed so much the poor woman thought someone had done me bodily harm. There are few things in life that will ever top the first sale!
