Acosta mini series
So thrilled to see naughty Mr Ruiz Acosta heading up the banner for this new Mills & Boon mini series. This was always a cover that made my heart thunder.
Have a great weekend, everyone!

POLO PUTS THE BALLS IN ROMANCE
Hyperventilating with excitement at starting my new four book series today, but sad to wipe my White board clean, taking down all the Skavanga diamond references
I loved those guys, but now it’s time for a new series with more fabulous pages by the incomparable Jo – the title of this new series will be announced in my Newsletter, and there’s still time to sign up before the newsletter goes live on the 29th November, with a chance to win a small gifts from me for 10 subscribers chosen at random, as well as an extra biggie for one subscriber, again chosen at random – and this time you have to answer 1 question from my DECEMBER 1st release – Christmas Nights With the Polo Player
Good luck everyone, and happy hunting!!

What a fantastic job by everyone at Harlequin, especially Jo Grant, who sits and listens patiently to my crazy ideas, and to Laurie Johnson whose unbounded enthusiasm allows her to pick through the jumble in my mind, and not least to Malle Vallik at Harlequin-E, who, I’m sure, just smiles and thinks to herself, ‘It’s that crazy woman again. What’s she come up with this time?’ – To all of you, thank you for making the magic happen.
And of course, huge thanks to my wonderful readers who have bombarded me from across the world with questions like: Can those wild boys really settle down?
I hope I have provided you with at least some of the answers, along with a whole new story involving an idealistic veterinary student and a unapologetic playboy.
Sharing my dreams with you makes me happier than I can tell you. Meeting you in person, as I had chance to do in Atlanta and Perth, is just AMAZING, so roll on RT New Orleans in May, and please, as many of you as possible do come to have a chat with me – I can’t wait to meet you.
And now it’s back to work, and on with the next book!
Hugs around the world! ((xx))

Outside the house I like to think I am an oasis of calm. Cue wind chimes…
(deluded, or what!)
Inside the house, it seems my family sees me in a rather different light…
Have a great week,

Book News and Oz
First this fantastic shot of Melanie Milburne and her husband winning the nautical themed fancy dress party in Freo’
Have to say Melanie looks a lot prettier than the Olive Oil I remember! And her husband made a fabulous Popeye.
I was lucky enough to be able to share the moment when Melanie was presented with a gold pin for her 50th fantastic book. Here’s to the next fifty!
Acosta News! so thrilled readers loved my big, bad polo guys, and delighted to announce that Harlequin has just contracted a short Christmas novella so we can unwrap those bad boys at our leisure during the holiday season.
Look out for, digi only
ACOSTAS UNLEASHED… for CHRISTMAS
And for those of you asking, ‘Where’s Xandra?’
The answer is, Xandra’s been busy writing more books in the Celestina series, as Harlequin-E is launching with Shivers this autumn/fall, so Xandra’s Celestina books will now be released April/May 2014
Have a great day, everyone, with lots of hot guys bound securely between the pages of a book!

Wonderful Wonderful Australia
And what a beach!
But it was the warmth of the Australian people I’ll remember, together with fabulous food, the non-stop fun, the extreme funness (new word!) and sheer undiluted pleasure of travelling with THE FABULOUS Carole Mortimer, the, ooh, sigh,’sex for feet’ otherwise known as Ugg slippers! And, of course, the parties.
Yep, you’ve guessed it, the Australian conference was amazing from beginning to end, both from the information point of view, and for the new friends I made, along with those I got the first chance to meet after chatting on line for so long –
Here I am with two Fiona’s – Fiona Marsden, long-time Twitter chum -
amazing person – I’m so in awe, and Fiona McArthur, gorgeous, lovely friendly person and fantastic author too
More pictures coming up ASAP!

Just returned from the Awards luncheon with inspirational speaker, Kristan Higgins – and on the point of loading every one of Kristan’s books onto my Kindle! Amazing speech, amazing person – have to read all Kristan’s books! NOW.
Visit to world-famous Georgia aquarium with Sharon Kendrick
Some amazing creatures – the fish and other creatures, not the dames!
I’ll be honest with you – not sure I’m completely happy seeing whales and whale sharks in tanks, but they do have the very best of care in Atlanta, and it is an amazing facility.
Loads more pics up on Facebook and @Susan_Stephens
Harlequin party tonight. Woot! Woot!
