Christina Dodd’s RULES OF ATTRACTION published in audiobook!

     The bedroom door slammed open and Dougald stomped back in. “Where have you been? You’re dressed up. I haven’t seen you so dressed up. Not since you’ve been here.” His fists clenched. “If you were out with that little pudknocker Seaton—“

     “It would be none of your business.” Was he jealous? How lovely.

     “It bloody well is my business where you go and what you do.”

     Hannah jutted out her chin. “Why?”

     “You’re my wife.”

     Indignation came boiling up from her frustrated self. “When? Nine years ago? Not today. Not now.” She stepped forward and glared at him, the egotistical pompous cad who thought to control her money and her fate.

    He swept her into his arms.

     She grabbed his hair and brought his lips down to hers.

     They kissed in a whirlwind of passion and anger. Damn him! To treat her so insolently… yet he wanted her, for his arms crushed her to him, his hands searched through the layers of her skirts to find her thighs and lift them around him.

     And she … she wrapped her legs around his waist, pressed her bodice against his waistcoat, kissed him with her tongue thrusting against his.

     He tore his mouth from hers. “You dreadful tease.”

     “Not me.” She bit his lower lip. “I don’t tease. This isn’t teasing.”

     “Not now.” He tumbled her onto her back on her narrow bed, his hips between her legs. “But since you’ve been here. Every day. Prancing around the castle. Up the stairs. Down the corridors.”

     “I did not prance, sir.” She ran her fingers through his hair and decided he should never cut it. “I am not a horse!”

     “Talking so that, while I work in my office, I strained to hear you speak.”

     “Is it your command that I not speak?”

     “Dressing provocatively.”

     “Provocatively!” She squinted down at the chestnut gown.

     Climbing to his knees, he wrestled her skirt and petticoats to her waist, and like a magistrate proving guilt, he pointed at her ankles. “Look at this. Lace on your pantalettes!”

     “I never showed you.” She kicked her leather slippers off.

     “I knew about the lace. I sensed it was there.”

     “I cannot help if you have developed clairvoyant abilities.”

     “Only where you’re concerned.” He rolled her pantalettes down. “Only about you.”RULES OF ATTRACTION, #4 in The Governess Brides series, is now out published by Brilliance Audio.

WRONG ALIBI is published!

         IT WAS EARLY MORNING when Evie got to her mother’s house. It looked the same; a narrow, two-story, white bungalow with dark green trim and a white picket fence. Spring bulbs poked their heads out of the flower beds. She lingered on the sidewalk, held by a fear unlike any other she had faced in her ordeal.
         When Mama realized the identity of the stranger on her doorstep, would she even let Evie in? More important, was she even home?
        Someone was, because someone passed by the living room window, then by a side window toward the back of the house.
        Evie walked up the driveway toward the garage, opened the gate, shut it behind her and walked to the side door. She stood, fist raised, wanting to knock.
         The door jerked open.
         They were face-to-face.
         Her mother.
         And Evie.
         Both were startled.
         Evie should explain who she was. Because how could anyone recognize her after all the surgeries?
         But Ioana’s face crumpled. “My baby.” Without needing a word or a second glance, Ioana knew her. She pulled Evie into her embrace. “My Evie. You’re alive. You’re alive.”
         Evie cried. Even with her broken, rearranged face, her mother knew her.
         The moment lasted ten seconds.
         Ioana caught her breath, muttered, “We can’t do this here. Old Mr. Gagnon sees everything,” and yanked Evie inside. — WRONG ALIBI is out now! Buy it at your favorite independent bookstore or online:

The famed Amazon 1-star review: “I hated this book because it is all about sex, sex, sex. The story gets lost in the descriptive sex pages which are numerous.”

Actually, it’s a plot driven book in a plot driven paranormal series that has cult status among readers, but the review makes me laugh.

Snort Your Beverage! Jayne Ann Krentz and Christina Dodd Live!

New York Times Bestseller and friend Jayne Ann Krentz interviewed me in a Zoom/ Facebook event. There was laughter and engagement with readers, and we discussed what we were reading, what we were writing, how focused we are on food during the time of COVID, and had a tour of my office. Also, Jayne talked about the return of the dust bunnies! As so many of you said, it was like eavesdropping on one of our conversations. Enjoy!

Christina Dodd’s Anniversary Cake

Sometimes in an author’s career there comes a moment that resonates with emotion. I had one of those times on Saturday February 8 when, at The Poisoned Pen Bookstore, those wonderful booksellers presented me with a cake and balloons to celebrate my 30th publishing anniversary. I was reminded of my first autographing at the bookstore where I was a bookseller (Carol’s Book Corner in Houston) when a customer presented me with a cake she’d had decorated with the cover of my first book, CANDLE IN THE WINDOW.

Yep, I shed a few tears.
Then I ate cake.

Both cakes were yummy. I wish I could share them with you all, dear friends. Thank you for a wonderful 30 years!

As an author and reader, during these tough times I’m concerned about the fate of great independent bookstores like The Poisoned Pen. If you feel the same way, give your independent bookstore a visit or if that’s not possible, call and have them ship you a book or five. Want an autographed Christina Dodd book? The
