Coming in November:THE COLTON HEIR

Twenty-mumble (yes, I've lost track for the moment) books after my first published novel came out in 1999, I still get that pulse-pounding burst of excitement whenever I'm sent the link to a new cover. This one's my very favorite of all my Harlequin books. Their art department has really outdone itself depicting drop-dead gorgeous horse whisperer Dylan Frick of The Colton Heir!

Here's a sneak peek of the cover copy:

Terror rises at Dead River Ranch in this intriguing Coltons of Wyoming romance

Wrangler Dylan Frick thought he knew his past—until a suspicion surfaces that he's the secret Colton heir who vanished from Dead River Ranch as a baby. Now his identity's in question, and his mother's murder is still unsolved. And he's thrown off course by the ranch's mysterious new maid, Hope Woods. The gun-wielding knockout has fear in her eyes and seems desperate to escape her own private danger. Defending Hope—and keeping her deadly secret—leaves them both open to unexpected passion. But will protecting her mean walking out of her life for good?
The Colton Heir does stand alone, but you'll enjoy it even more if you read it in its place, as Book 5 of the six-book Coltons of Wyoming mini-series from Harlequin Romantic Suspense. The books and authors involved are as follows:

The books of The Coltons of Wyoming miniseries:
Book 1: THE COLTON RANSOM by Marie Ferrarella    July 2013.
Book 2: Colton by Blood by Melissa Cutler   August 2013
Book 5: The Colton Heir by Colleen Thompson  November 2013
Participating in a multi-author series of this link was both an enormous challenge and an enormous load of fun! I feel so fortunate to have gotten to know some wonderful writers this way. Besides, when the editor who called to offer the project told my agent she envisioned this as "Downton Abbey meets Dallas," I was completely *there.* And so far (I've just finished reading the second title, Melissa Cutler's wonderful Colton by Blood) it's really living up to its promise. I can only hope that readers will agree!

"The Curious Case of Benjamin Button": Did you love it or hate it?

Earlier this week, Colleen and I went to see "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button", the extraordinary movie based on a short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald. I loved it. Colleen not s'much. (I was sitting there choked in tears at the end of the three hour film, so I only vaguely remember her saying something about "watching paint dry.") I want to see it again, so I'm trying to get the Gare Bear to go with me this weekend, but I won't be surprised if he reacts the same way Colleen did. The movie is long. And odd. It requires patience and a complete suspension of disbelief that modern audiences simply aren't trained for, so you've got to be in the right mood for it. The same is true of the short story, though the story and script have very little in common -- at least superficially. The story is very Fitzgerald (though it's not an example of his best writing, IMHO), and the setting -- Baltimore during the industrial revolution, Spanish Americ

APATHY AND OTHER SMALL VICTORIES by Paul Neilan is only good if you enjoy things like laughter

The only thing Shane cares about is leaving. Usually on a Greyhound bus, right before his life falls apart again. Just like he planned. But this time it's complicated: there's a sadistic corporate climber who thinks she's his girlfriend, a rent-subsidized affair with his landlord's wife, and the bizarrely appealing deaf assistant to Shane's cosmically unstable dentist. When one of the women is murdered, and Shane is the only suspect who doesn't care enough to act like he didn't do it, the question becomes just how he'll clear the good name he never had and doesn't particularly want: his own.
