“Hello everyone. I write hot, sizzling romance. Even though my first love is historical, I also write contemporary romance. I signed my first contract with Soul Mate Publishing in 2013. Since then I’ve had three books published and two more coming out this year. I have a “Rakes Carpe Diem Series” planned. After those, I have a Fireman Series planned. Who doesn’t love a hunky fireman? My morning usually starts off with coffee in bed—hmmm, you say. Hubby knows how to deliver a cup of coffee to get my morning started off just right. Then I go to my writing cave and greet the world.”
Tell us a little about what you’re currently working on.
“Oh Goodie. I’ve just started working on a ‘Rakes Carpe Diem Series’. The men of their ranks are plummeting. Four healthy blooded men, who cringe at the very thought of marriage, know someday they each must face their own nuptials. But before they do, the vow to be the most notorious rakehells of England. But Book 3 in my ‘One and Only Series’ is due to be released in October.”

What a wonderful experience at The RWA Conference in New York
OMG. What to pack. What to take. Business Casual — but you saw everything. My suggestion, dress for comfort. Something nice and comfortable shoes for LOTS of walking. Something Very Nice or Formal for the ceremonies. Sequins are not necessary unless you are winning an award. But you’ll fit in perfectly if you decide glamour is for you.
The cab ride was wild. We had a private cab. Due to the traffic, the driver tried to keep adding more to the fee the longer we sat in bumper to bumper traffic. Crazy drivers. 1 hour to get to the hotel.
Can you believe this sign?
The Soul Mate Publishing Gang! Thank you Debby for dinner and a fun evening.
How wonderful to meet those you have chatted with on line.
I found some great workshops, but several of the ones I wanted were already full. Sitting on the floor, standing room only, or could not even get in the door. Good thing there were other choices. My very favorite author Jude Deveraux
I met so many amazing authors. And I enjoyed the Publishing House’s author signings.
Learned some great tips on all sorts of material.
Starbucks made a mint off of the authors! Chuckles. And I stayed wired, but crashed in bed each night when my head hit the pillow.
Time’s Square was – different. Every dress up character available for a picture My friend went to take her photo with the statue of liberty guy,
“I work for money!” He said !
Loved walking the streets and seeing the sights. Lots of shops,
Broadway theaters – I so want to see “Phantom of the Opera” !
Back to the Conference. Golden Heart and Rita Awards. People don’t believe the grandeur of the ceremony, when I mention it is just like Hollywood Oscar and Grammy awards.
Thank you for sharing a walk through memory lane at the 2015 RWA Conference in New York !
For those of you who have not been, the first time for a RWA author is an eye opener experience. If you get the chance to go — GO ! Have a great day ! And remember . . .
Keep the Spirit !

I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE FLAG, OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
AND TO THE REPUBLIC, FOR WHICH IT STANDS, ONE NATION UNDER GOD,
INDIVISIBLE, WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL!
For all of our military personnel, where ever they may be.
Please Support all of the troops defending our Country.
And God Bless our Military
who are protecting our Country for our Freedom.
Thanks to them, and their sacrifices, we can celebrate the 4th of July.
We must never forget who gets the credit for the freedoms we have, of which we should be eternally grateful.
I watched the flag pass by one day. It fluttered in the breeze.
A young Marine saluted it, And then he stood at ease.
I looked at him in uniform; so young, so tall, so proud.
With hair cut square and eyes alert, he’d stand out in any crowd.
I thought how many men like him had fallen through the years.
How many died on foreign soil; how many mothers’ tears?
How many pilots’ planes shot down? How many died at sea?
How many foxholes were soldiers’ graves?
NO, FREEDOM ISN’T FREE !
I heard the sound of Taps one night, when everything was still.
I listened to the bugler play And felt a sudden chill. I wondered just how many times
That Taps had meant ‘Amen.’ When a flag had draped a coffin of a brother or a friend.
I thought of all the children, of the mothers and the wives, of fathers, sons and husbands
With interrupted lives. I thought about a graveyard At the bottom of the sea.
Of unmarked graves in Arlington .
NO FREEDOM ISN’T FREE
Enjoy Your Freedom and God Bless Our Troops.
When you receive this, please stop for a moment and say a prayer for our servicemen
Of all the gifts you could give a U.S. Soldier, prayer is the very best one.
“Once again, Wyatt delivers! This book is one hot, sizzling romance that I just fell openly in love.”
The Right One
One and Only Series, #1
Once again, Wyatt delivers! This book is one hot, sizzling romance that I just fell openly in love.
Somehow I managed to read the second book of this series first. While I’m not entirely sure how I managed to overlook The Right One I can only be glad that I discovered it as this book has quickly became one of the best romances I have ever had the pleasure of reading!
If I had to pick only one trait about this book that I loved most (and there were many) I would settle on the plot. Brilliant, worthy of a good swoon and was exactly what I was looking for in not only a romance book, but a novel in general as I feel like Wyatt was the author I have long been searching for.
Moving onward to the characters, I fell in love with both Morgan and Katherine. Their story started off a little rough but that is to be expected given their introduction. I thought that Katherine paired perfectly with Morgan as she was a strong-willed character that even when in fear she was able to stand her own ground. As for Morgan I enjoyed how thick his outer masculinity appeared, but with Katherine he seemed somewhat softer to the point that I enjoyed his rugged character that much more.
This book is not only one of my favorites, but so is this series. I’m greatly looking forward to reading more from Wyatt as I have not only found a new favorite author in her works, but also found in an author that is one to watch out for!

How many of you like to have THE END at the end of every book you read?
How many of you like a book ending with a hook? Where the story begins and is continued in several following books, where then end of the story is in the last book of the series?
Some works in a series can stand alone—they can be read in any order, but if you’re like me, I want to read them in the order written. If I happen to pick up one in the middle, I’ll go find the others and then read them in the correct order. I have a friend who is anal about this. If an author has written several books in a series, she has to have them all before she reads the first one. LOL. And she’s gotten me doing the same thing.
Before I get ahead of myself, a stand alone book is basically one that gives the full story—a beginning and an end. Within each book, references are made to characters in the other books of the series, or to past events. Some books involve a family, a group of brothers, or a group of friends. Each book in the series is of one individual of that group.
Some series have one set of characters spread throughout several books. Their characters go through drastic changes, make references to past events spreading over a long period of time. The story begins in book one with a hook ending or the story is not completed. The next book follows the previous book with changes where books must be read in order to learn the complete story.
My own preference is for any book in a series to stand alone. Which basically means each book should be enjoyable in its own right with a beginning and an end. Satisfying or not, happy or not, the ending should be the end of a book.
Before ‘series’ became popular, I remember reading a few romance books that mentioned a familiar character, or was related to a character in another book. Since I enjoyed those, I thought it would be nice to introduce a few familiar characters in my own books. Each of my books have a beginning and a romantically satisfying end for my characters happily ever after. Nothing left hanging.
I must admit my pet peeve is when I become involved in a book only to find at the last page a hook ending or no ending. If I want to know the end of the story, I have to purchase the next book in the series to continue the story, and maybe even another. The end of the story is in the last book of the series? How many of you knew 50 Shades of Grey was spread over three books before you wanted to read them? Perfect example.
If I want to buy three books, I will gladly. But to be surprised at the end of my first book in order to read the ending I needed to purchase another book—very annoying. I feel cheated.
Although I must say I recently read a romance paced over three books that was fantastic. Hero and heroine met in book one, split, reunited in book two, split, happily ever after ending in book three. I became so attached to the characters and fell in love with the story and the author. Definitely worth the read. “Mr. Black-In the Shadows Series.”
I can’t express enough that when ‘series’ are involved, advertise if the book has a beginning or an end or if another purchase is required to continue the story—and how many!
Series? Love them. Personally—each book should be enjoyable and without the reader being forced into a possibly unwanted purchase. But, to each his/her own.
The True One
The One and Only Series, #2
This book is a splendid adventure on the high seas and I am happy that I was able to discover both this story and its author. Prior to my reading I thought the plot might have been previous material that I had read but Wyatt was able to intertwine a new romance and a story that I overly enjoyed. Personally I think this is everything in reviewing a book as throughout my reading I could feel the author’s heart and emotions driving the heroine in this story and this writing style is not only unique but so refreshing.
From the prologue to the last chapter this book was filled with suspense and heroic action, but I have to confess that the romance is by far my favorite part of this book. The romance is not as traditional as some romance readers are used to. The first introduction of romance is by Jennifer, the heroine as she is carrying for a wounded Stephen. I think it is only fair to note that Jennifer is not the ideal heroine that I am use to seeing in historical fiction. She was sharply-witted, able to stand on her own two feet and I couldn’t imagine anyone that is a better match for Stephen than she. I would love to see more heroines like Jennifer in future romance novels… As for Stephen he was more of the standard, dreamy hero that I think romance readers expect.
The romance in this book is very good. It requires a bit of an effort on the reader’s part to uncover more than just chemistry between both Jennifer and Stephen but the ending is very rewarding.
For my introduction to a new author I am very pleased with The True One and I will be looking forward to future releases penned by Wyatt in hopes that she will once again deliver a story as likeable as this book.
