Countering His Claim has a cover

I'm thrilled with the cover for Countering His Claim! I think the Desire art dept have captured the feel of this book beautifully.

It will be out in October in the US, Australia, New Zealand and India. Other countries to follow (probably with different covers). 

The cover at the top is the US cover, and the one with the pink line and a book by Andrea Laurence included is the Aust/NZ cover. No cover for the Indian version yet. 

The back cover blurb:

Passion sets sail in USA TODAY bestselling author Rachel Bailey's tale of high-stakes inheritance 

Never be distracted by a woman is hotel magnate Luke Marlow's golden rule, especially when the woman just inherited half his late uncle's luxury cruise liner. But ship's doctor Della Walsh is the exception. Her dignified beauty ignites Luke's desire despite his suspicions. Even so, he will gain full control of the ship at all costs.

For Della, the ship has been a sanctuary. Now she has just three weeks to change Luke's mind and save the ship—until passion comes along and steers them off course….

I can't wait for Luke and Della to share their story with the world. :)

New Cover!

I've been sent the cover of my April release, No Stranger To Scandal, so I'm sharing it here with you.

It's Hayden and Lucy's story, book 4 in a new continuity with five other Desire authors, Daughters of Power:

A Conflict of Interest, Barbara Dunlop
Bedroom Diplomacy, Michelle Celmer
A Wedding She'll Never Forget, Robyn Grady
No Stranger To Scandal, Rachel Bailey
A Very Exclusive Engagement, Andrea Laurence
Affairs of State, Jennifer Lewis

All the books are set in Washington D.C. and centre around the scandal of the bachelor president's secret daughter. Such fun!

Ten years ago...

Ten years ago, Dougal and Fergus had their very first Christmas. Dougal was almost one and Fergus was about five months old and they were adorable boys. I took a series of photos to celebrate that 2002 Christmas, and I thought I'd share a few.

There's another shot from this series today on Nikki Logan's blog, with a Then and Now comparison, along with one each of Oliver and Jazzie May.

Happy Holidays!

Some of the Bailey dogs are getting into the festive spirit and I thought I'd share.

This top photo is Dougal, patiently waiting for me to take the pic. He's such a good boy, even when the purpose of wearing a blue Merry Christmas hat completely eludes him.

The second photo is Fergus, who will do pretty much anything for attention if he's in the mood, including posing on a chair in green tinsel.

If you want to see some more gorgoeus dogs getting festive, pop over to Nikki Logan's blog where she's posting a dog a day in The Twelve Dogs of Christmas. Each of the Bailey dogs will be making appearances!

I thought it was time to post some pics from my trip to Anaheim for the Romance Writers of America national conference. It was my first trip to the US and I had a ball. Now I'm scheming ways to attend future US conferences!

Dinner with some fabulous Desire authors (L-R): Emily McKay, Charlene Sands, me, Janice Maynard, and my most excellent roomie, Yvonne Lindsay.

A humungous pretzel (cinnamon) and lemonade. The morning tea of kings.

At the Rita Awards ceremony with Hayson Manning and Barbara De Leo.

Having coffee a the hotel's Starbucks with Melanie Milburne and Nas Dean. Fun!

More Melbourne Photos

A few more photos from my Melbourne trip. :)

This is the front window of the Hopetoun Tea Rooms. We didn't go in because there was always a line up, but we'll definitely be trying them next trip.
