Current Blog Entry: The Ideal Hero   *   September 2014 Blog Tour Schedule

Fall is here -- my favorite time of year!

PJ Ausdenmore and I at a signing at Fashion Gurlz in Coloma, 20 September 2014       I can hardly believe that October 2nd was my & Larry's 49th wedding anniversary! Time really does fly. This year, we celebrated with a trip to northern Michigan. Next year for our 50th we're planning a big trip west - 3-4 weeks of traveling all over my favorite "Big" country!

       My newest book, DESPERATE HEARTS, is a big success! I've had some wonderful book signings and met some new readers! I've given away two $50 Amazon gift certificates and several free copies of my book. I hope those of you who haven't read this story yet will pick up a copy at your favorite bookstore or get one through (Read more about DESPERATE HEARTS here, and find ordering information for all e-reader formats on my E-book List page)

       A SNEAK PEEK AT 2015!!! The new covers by artist Jon Paul for OUTLAW HEARTS (coming next June) and DO NOT FORSAKE ME (coming next July) are finished, and they are are spectacular! The pose of hero Jake Harkner with his beloved wife Miranda on the DO NOT FORSAKE ME cover is reminiscent of the famous pose of Rhett Butler and Scarlett O'Hara in GONE WITH THE WIND - where they are standing on a bridge with Atlanta burning behind them. It's really gorgeous! I love, love, love DO NOT FORSAKE ME and the hero, Jake Harkner, so get ready for a BIG read next summer - at least 550 pages of gritty, mean, wild-west action and a truly great love story! DO NOT FORSAKE ME is a story of forgiveness and redemption and true love - a story you will long remember! (Read more about OUTLAW HEARTS and DO NOT FORSAKE ME -- and see these outstanding new covers -- here!)

       Currently my agent is working on getting all 7 of my SAVAGE DESTINY books back in print with hot new covers!! I can't wait! And I've submitted a proposal for Book #8, so we'll see what happens. I have also submitted a proposal for my first Indian/white contemporary romance, as well as a good old-fashioned historical Indian/white romance.

The autumn leaves and gorgeous fall sky.       After 35 years of writing, even more years of reading, and having completed 60 novels, I’ve come to the conclusion that most female readers’ ideal hero (and yes, male readers, too) is the alpha male who is tough and able on the outside, but vulnerable and tender on the inside. I absolutely love the “tough guy” persona, a man who’s strong and brave and can handle weapons and fists … but a man who would never dream of laying a hand on the woman he loves. For more on this thought, please see my Current Blog Entry: The Ideal Hero!

       Of course, for your fall reading, remember that Diversion Books has reissued FIVE of my older books -- TENNESSEE BRIDE, TEXAS BRIDE, OREGON BRIDE, FULL CIRCLE, UNTIL TOMORROW in all e-reader formats! These books are also now available in print- on- demand paperback versions for those who prefer a real printed book -- AND the audiobooks for three of them are available! Please click here to see the new covers and book descriptions, and you will find E-reader, Audiobook, and Print ordering options on my E-Book List page.

       And don't forget that my Blue Hawk Series books are now available for ALL e-readers! Please see my What's New page for the hot new covers created especially for the e-reader editions and my Books in E-Reader Formats page for ordering information for Kindle, Nook, iBook/iTunes, and Kobo, which offers all formats plus lots of great reviews! Those of you who prefer print books can still order the iUniverse reissued print editions through (Unfortunately, the new covers will be available for the e-reader versions only.)

Rosanne at her first signing for DESPERATE HEARTS at Purely Michigan in St. Joe, Michigan, 30 August 2014. and other book seller sites encourage readers to leave comments.

        I still have several extra copies of some OLDER BOOKSthat are no longer available! Many of these books have been previously read, but some are brand-new. You can order these older titles, as well as my recently reissued books, directly from me and I will sign them for you -- or for a friend who loves a good read.

       I also have available THE TOUCH OF LOVE, a 46-page short story/ novella about Robert Kingsley, the half-Indian boy raised by Rising Eagle of my Mystic Indian trilogy, which was previously only available by download from In action, it falls between MYSTIC VISIONS and MYSTIC WARRIORS(Books 2 & 3).
