Mills and Boon's Write a Hero Contest!

I love men! The sexier, the more extroverted,  the better. I love to read and to write about confident men who understand themselves, even their own flaws, and who definitely know their way around a bedroom—and while they’ve had plenty of women, they understand the primal, sacred function of physical love with the right woman.  Anyone who’s read a Bronwyn Scott novel won’t be surprised to note that some of my favorite cinematic and literary heroes include in no particular order of preference, because, really, how could anyone be expected to decide between these hot alpha heroes?

Rhett Butler (Gone with the Wind)

Maximus  (Gladiator)



Hawkeye (Last of the Mohicans)



Jamie Fraser (Outlander)


Aragorn (Lord of the Rings)


What do all of these heroes have in common?  They understand the worlds they live in, they understand themselves and most importantly, they understand that quite often those two things don’t mix.  They are all men who are comfortable in their own skin, comfortable with their personal moral codes  and they know abiding by those codes puts them at great risk.  Their one weakness?  Whether or not they can risk including others in those codes. Can they afford to love? Can they ask another to share that code and walk the paths they’ve chosen? These men are responsible with their affections and when they fall, they fall hard. 


Each of my heroes embody a little slice of the qualities these men represent.  Some of my recent favorite heroes include Dorian Rowland from “A Lady Dares.”  He’s  a social outcast, he doesn’t even live in England, and he makes no apologies for it. There’s no happy reconciliation and reintegration for him at the end of the book (spoiler alert!) and the woman he loves, Elise Sutton, has to decide where her loyalties for a life time lay—with Dorian, or in England with the life she’s been raised to live. She cannot have both.  Another recent favorite is Kitt Sherard in my upcoming Caribbean duet—he has sacrificed everything, even his own identity for the sake of family. Can he ask a woman to live with that?


Do you think you can craft a hot alpha hero?  Give it a shot! Enter the Mills and Book craft a hero contest.

4 stars from RT for London's Most Wanted Rake (Here April 1st)

Channing and Alina's story rounds out the series! What a winter it's been, I can't believe all 4 books are out now. Channing and Alina are old friends of a sort, but it's never been their time and that's resulted in some unresolved issues, but the bedroom isn't one of them. Now, Alina's set on catching a man who'd swindled her family and she needs Channing's help to do it--if they can manage their past.

Old favorites make nice reappearances--Jocelyn and Cassandra, Nick and Annorah, and the still single Amery DeHart are all ready to stand beside Channing on his last adventure as a Rake Who Makes Husbands Jealous.

Secrets of a Gentleman Escort Swim a thon promotion

It's that time of year when my son does his one and only fundraiser--Swim a thon at the King Aquatic Club.  To help him raise money (because we have a super small family and not much relative support in that way), I am offering signed copies of "Secrets of a Gentleman Escort" to any $10.00 or more donation to his swim a thon page, found at this link.  through the end of March 2014 or as long as supplies last.

King Aquatic is ranked as one of 11 swim clubs in the nation to earn USA Swimming's Gold Medal of Excellence and it is an amazing program, constantly turning out the top swimmers in the northwest and west coast. Swim a thon money goes to help support kids at all levels of the program through paying for relay entry fees, off setting travel expenses, and scholarships.  Rowan has definitely benefitted from the coaching and training he receives. You can read about his recent accomplishments on his fundraising page--but it's very exciting for him to see his competitive aspirations come true through hard work and excellent coaching. We feel blessed to be part of this program.

Please considering donating. You get a tax write off, a free book (I will even cover your domestic shipping) and you're helping out a great program that is creating life defining experiences for young athletes.

Thanks for your consideration,
