Love’s Busy Sometimes!
My Golden Heart winning debut novel, MISTRESS BY MISTAKE, comes out on December 1st! Yay, can you believe it? Finally!
It should be in bookstores everywhere, but in case you have trouble finding it, talk to your bookseller. They really do like to know what people are looking for. Or, if you don’t mind the shipping and handling, you can find it at http://www.amazon.com/ and they’ll send it right to your house. (The ISBN number is 978-0-425-23151-7 and the cover price is a doable $7.99.)
I won’t usually bore you with these, but since this is all new and exciting for me, I’d like to share a couple of the wonderful reviews MISTRESS BY MISTAKE has been receiving.
“Heino debuts with a delightful love-and-laughter story about an independent heiress and a dashing nobleman who discover the power of love while surrounded by mayhem and madness. I dare you not to laugh out loud!” --RT Reviews, 4 stars, HOT
“Sparkling with superbly crafted characters, humor, and deliciously sexy romance, Heino’s debut, winner of RWA’s Golden Heart award, is splendidly entertaining.” --Booklist
To celebrate my first-ever release (and to hawk it to the masses) I will be making a few, select public appearances. (No, not on Oprah or Leno. Sorry. It’s not that kind of book.)

More to Come
DAMSEL IN DISGUISE will be my next release, scheduled for August 2010. It follows the story of one of the characters from MISTRESS and I hope readers will be excited to find out what happens next. A “teaser” for it is included at the end of MISTRESS and I’m very eager to introduce that fun, slightly more suspenseful story.
If you email me with the correct answer to the following question before Nov. 30th, I’ll put your name in a drawing. On Monday, Nov. 30th, I’ll randomly draw a name and contact you if you win!
The Prize? A twenty-five dollar gift card to Barnes & Noble plus an autographed copy of MISTRESS BY MISTAKE.
The Question? How many stars did RT Reviews give me in their recent review?
(Hint: the answer’s right here in the newsletter somewhere!)
If you don’t hear from me before the holidays, may they be joyful and full of fun. Until my next, second-ever newsletter, I hope your life is never too busy for love!
