Release and pre-order info - A Family Affair: Spring

As the release of A Family Affair: Spring draws closer, I have a few announcements.

First, the tentative release date is November 10, 2013. Pre-orders are available now on itunes and Kobo. Nothing on Amazon or B&N…sorry. I’m going to start posting a few ‘unedited’ scenes here and there to give you a peek into the story. Please write if you have any questions.



A Family Affair: Spring is a story of betrayal, forgiveness, and redemption, all wrapped up in the lives of the people we love to love, and even a few we love to hate.

Harry Blacksworth is rich, handsome, the ultimate playboy with a killer smile and a clever wit. He’s fought it, denied it, ignored it, but the damn truth won’t go away: he’s fallen in love. And just when he’s accepted that fact, Greta Severenson, the only woman he’s ever trusted, breaks his heart.

Christine Blacksworth and Nate Desantro beat the odds when they fell in love and married. But staying married is threatened when the foundation behind every good relationship—trust—is challenged.
Gloria Blacksworth descends upon Magdalena in all of her designer-clad arrogance, determined to make Christine change her course and return to Chicago and her old life. It may take two trips to that godforsaken town or ten, but Gloria doesn’t plan to fail. When she finally confronts Miriam Desantro, the “other woman”, Gloria discovers more than she ever wanted to know… or admit.

Angelo ‘Pop’ Benito is the Godfather of Magdalena. Nothing happens in that town without his knowledge or approval. And Pop doesn’t do anything without a long sit down with his dead wife, Lucy, and a half dozen pizzelles by his side. He’ll need a lot of lung power and a tray of his favorite treat to help Nate and Christine out of a real mess. And he may need the help of his checkers buddy and Magdalena’s shining star, Lily Desantro.

Hi, I’ve just finished a family affair and so pleased to know a follow up book is on its way even if it is not till November! I just hope Nate and Chrissie are going to be ok, otherwise I might have to just stick to the end of book one :)


A Family Affair was the first of your books that I read and I loved it so much I have since read many more.
I am SO thrilled to hear there will be a sequel :)


I’m so excited for The Family Affair: Spring! I have read The Family Affair over and over again. I love this book and can’t wait to buy the sequel! How much will it be to buy it on your Nook, by the way? I’ll be counting down the days to get it, for sure :)


A Family Affair is the first book of yours I have read and I’m hooked! I have been stalking your site for updates so excited for book 2. Keep writing we know you wont disappoint!!!!


Loved these books,read them each in a day! Can’t wait for the next one .


I just finished A Family Affair: Spring. It made me laugh, cry, and feel honored to be a part of the Blacksowrth and DeSantro families.

Great job, looking forward to Summr! (Eh, sorry I read so fast. I doubt there’s an author on this earth who is able to write quality content fast enough to keep up with my voracious appetite….)


….and I apologize for the typos, but it didn’t give me the option to edit…. :(
