Special Announcement: New series coming 2016
I've been waiting since September 2014 to announce this new series. But we didn't want to announce it too soon . . . Rachael Anderson had this idea to use multiple authors to write a connecting series that all had a matchmaker in it. We met at Karey White's home and started brainstorming. We wanted the series to span various eras, from historical to contemporary, which would mean that the matchmaker would time-travel, as well as possess a power to match couples together. So this series would have some magic realism in it as well.
Since the matchmaker herself had to be born before any of the stories took place, naturally that meant her story would have a historical setting. Which then . . . it seemed that I was the one selected to write it since Rachael and Karey hadn't written historical stories before. Ironically, I had been reading a few novels over the summer all set in Shanghai. So I suggested Shanghai and it all came together from there.
Each of the 12 books in the series are stand-alone stories, some will be historical romances, other contemporary romances, but they will all feature the matchmaker. The Power of the Matchmaker novella is a prequel to any of the books and tells the matchmaker's story about how she became a matchmaker.
The novella is coming November 3, 2015 and you can now pre-order on Amazon and add it to your Goodreads list!
