Lots o’ fun news–PMP in audio, a blog chat, new foreign translations, and the Casa James garden

PMP audiobookHey everyone! I’m back from a lovely, three-day Memorial Day weekend with the family and thought I’d share some various bits of fun news:

First, I’m thrilled that the PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT audiobook is now available! (And currently 20% off.) I can’t wait to hear narrator Karen White reading that broken heel/courtroom scene. : ) You can listen to an excerpt from the book at the Tantor Audio website.

Second, during the RT Convention, I taped a blog chat with Sara from the Harlequin Junkie blog and Sasha from Caribbean Accent Book Reviews. That 30 minute chat is now available at Blog Talk Radio, and anyone can listen–no sign in or registration required. We had a great time talking about my books, the development of the FBI/U.S. Attorney series, my favorite hero, how I came to be a romance writer, my book covers . . . and I even talk a little about my next book. (Just a smidge.)

Also, I’ve updated my International Editions page to reflect the newest upcoming foreign translations of my books. Love Irresistibly will be translated into French and Thai (and I suspect more languages to come)–in fact, the entire FBI/U.S. Attorney series is being translated into Thai. Also, Just the Sexiest Man Alive (Deliziosa Sfida) will be released in hardcover in Italian. (The book is already available in paperback and e-book.) Finally, I’m thrilled to have my first book translated into Turkish–Something About You.

And, on a personal note, it’s summer gardening day here at Casa James. We’ll call this one the “before” shot. I’ll post (hopefully) when I have an “after.” : )

The Countdown Continues… with another giveaway!

**Please note: the giveaway is now closed. Winners will be announced shortly.

Less than three weeks to the release of Love Irresistibly! Which means it’s time for. . . another giveaway!

As many of you know, Love Irresistibly is the fourth book in my FBI/U.S. Attorney series. (FYI, for those of you who aren’t familiar, the books are a “series” in the sense that they are set in a shared world and some characters make appearances in later books. But I write each book as a standalone, so you should feel free to jump in wherever you like.)

For the past several weeks I’ve been giving away copies of the previous books in the series, so now we are up to my last release, About That Night.  About That Night features a billionaire heir/network security specialist/ex-con hero who went to prison for crashing Twitter. Yep, you read that right.  Here’s a short description:



Though Rylann Pierce tried to fight the sparks she felt for billionaire heir Kyle Rhodes the night they met, their sizzling chemistry was undeniable. But after being stood up on their first date, Rylann never expected to see him again. So when she finds herself face-to-face with Kyle in a courthouse nine years later, she’s stunned. More troubling to the beautiful assistant U.S. attorney is that she’s still wildly attracted to him.


Just released from prison, Kyle Rhodes isn’t thrilled to be the star witness in a high-profile criminal case—but when Rylann comes knocking at his door, he finds she may be the one lawyer he can’t say no to. Still as gorgeous and sharp-tongued as ever, she lays down the law: she doesn’t mix business with pleasure. But Kyle won’t give up on something he wants—and what he wants is the one woman he’s never forgotten. . .
