An award for Claimed by the Enemy!

At the recent Romance Writers of America national meeting, the Oklahoma chapter of the RWA gave out its prestigious National Readers' Choice Awards.

Claimed by the Enemy was chosen as winner in the category "Novel with Romantic Elements." You can imagine how excited yet dumbstruck I have been since.

Because I did not go to the RWA conference this year, I do not have my award yet; my friend Debra Mullins picked it up for me. 

However, Debra won a NRCA herself in the "Paranormal Romance" category for her book Heart of Stone, so I can show you her award as a substitute for mine:

I really owe her a debt of thanks for lugging home my heavy stone award as well as her own.

Claimed by the Enemy is available as an ebook, a trade paperback, and an audiobook. If you haven't read it yet, why not check it out at, online Barnes and Noble, or Smashwords? Not only has it won the NRCA award but it has also received many good reviews at and

If you've already read Claimed, why not stock up on copies for Christmas and birthday gifts? Both men and women have enjoyed it, and it's suitable for mature teens.

If you belong to a book discussion group, I can send you copies for everyone at a discount as well as swag, and/or I can join in part or all of the discussion by Skype or in person (depending where you are).
