I’m a huge fan of Shakespeare. (I’ve explained more why here.) Today, in honor of Shakespeare’s birthday, I’ve dusted off my blog to talk about one of my favorite plays — the comedy Much Ado About Nothing, including several of the more famous film productions. I hope you’ll take a few minutes to enjoy it!
Emma Thompson and Kenneth Branagh have a battle of wits in Much Ado About Nothing
I’m excited to announce that An Heiress at Heart is a finalist in the Romance Writers of America 2013 RITA® awards!
The RITA — the highest award of distinction in romance fiction — recognizes excellence in published romance novels and novellas.
It’s a HUGE honor to be nominated, and I’m in the company of some amazing authors!
The 2013 RITA winners will be announced at a black-tie awards ceremony on July 20 at the 2013 RWA Annual Conference in Atlanta, GA. I’ll be there, thrilled to be among the nominees!

Like most bookworms, the library is one of my favorite places. This weekend I’ll be visiting two libraries, hoping to connect with others who enjoy reading as much as I do.
On Saturday, Feb. 9, I’ll be at the Montgomery County Library in Troy, North Carolina, for their “Red Hot Romance Reception.”
On Sunday, Feb. 10, I’ll be at the East Regional Library in Knightdale (Raleigh), North Carolina, with historical romance authors Erin Knightley and Regina Jeffers.
I’ll be signing books at both events. For more information on times and library locations, see the Upcoming Events column on this page.
If you are near either library, I hope you’ll come by and say hello!
AN HEIRESS AT HEART was part of a lovely write-up of three historical romances at USA Today’s Happy Ever After blog!
“An Heiress at Heart is Delamere’s debut, and it’s an impressive one! This first book of the Love’s Grace trilogy explores the themes of honor, family and faith in a compelling balance of charm, sentiment and suspense….”
