Hey all! I have lots of news to share! First off, I'm in the process of changing jobs. I'm leaving family practice to join a pulmologist. I think this is going to be a good move for my family, but definitely keep us in your prayers!! Next, I've sold FOUR more books to Harlequin! Yea! I'm very excited about this. Two of these books will be out later this year and the second two will be out in 2011. :) I'm really excited about the two releases for later this year. One is a military medical that I hope I haven't completely botched as I adore the characters! and the other is my first Christmas story. There's just something magical about Christmas and I hope I capture that in this romance. :) The other two, well, I'm having lots of fun with the one. The hero is just something else! and the fourth one is going to be another military romance. So, I am very, very excited about all these things going on! :)

I also wanted to update you on my upcoming appearances. The first coming up on my current schedule is The HEART OF DIXIE Readers luncheon. This is a fabulous opportunity for readers and booksellers and librarians to meet authors, have lunch with them, and then attend a booksigning afterwards. I always have lots of fun at these and hope if you're in the Huntsville, Alabama area (or can travel!) that you'll attend! :) I've posted the information below with links. :)

My next scheduled booksigning/appearance is at the RWA National Conference that's conveniently being held in Nashville at the Opryland Hotel! This is the last week of July and the booksigning in the last Wednesday in July (the 28th!) This is a HUGE booksigning with hundreds of all your favorite romance authors attending. (Expected authors include greats like Nora Roberts, Debbie Maccomber, Heather Graham, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Linda Howard, etc!)

Also, my current release, PLAYBOY SURGEON, TOP-NOTCH DAD is currently still available at Be sure to order your copy while still available. :)

Another thing I'd like to share is that a very special book has been released. My friend DANA TAYLOR's book PRINCESS ROBIN is now available at Amazon. I first read this book years ago while Dana was writing it and knew immediately it was a special book. Years later, the characters are still with me and I'm so pleased that she's sold this story!! If you love an adventurous, fiesty heroine and a hero to die for, PRINCESS ROBIN is a book you won't want to miss!! :)

Playboy Surgeon, Top-Notch Dad is released!

Woo-hoo! I'm excited. One of my favorite books has just been released. Why one of my favorites? Because I was feeling particularly inspired while writing this book and will always love the hero. Oz is just that kind of guy. :) Of course, I purposely chose the name Oz because just the name makes me think of fantasy worlds where anything is possible.

So, to tell you about Playboy Surgeon, Top-Notch Dad, well, it's a February 2010 US release via eharlequin and is a February 2010 release in the UK as well. :)

Playboy Heart Surgeon, Top-Notch Dad
by Janice Lynn
Single mom Blair Pendergrass guards her heart fiercely—especially against men like her new boss, notorious playboy and heart surgeon Dr. Oz Manning. Heart healer? Heartbreaker, more like!Vulnerable Blair is exactly the sort of woman Oz usually runs a mile from. He doesn't have much faith in relationships, and he's not about to start making promises to Blair and her adorable little girl—however much he wants to!But might this beautiful nurse be the one to make Oz finally believe in forever?

And here's a copy of my Dear Reader letter:

Dear Reader,

Ever met someone you just knew was bad for you, yet you couldn't seem to avoid no matter how hard you tried? As if fate had stepped in and crisscrossed your paths to throw you together?

Having lost her faith in love, Blair Pendergrass is frustrated that no matter where she turns, revered heart surgeon Dr. Oz Manning is there. He's a through and through playboy and certainly not what she wants or needs in her life. But whether Oz is saving someone's life or playfully tossing spaghetti at her, she just can't resist him and soon finds herself falling for a man she knows she can never have and shouldn't want.

Needless to say, I fell in love with Oz. He's such a fun hero during a time when Blair most needs to learn to laugh again. We all need someone in our lives who can make us smile even during days when we can't see the light at the end of the tunnel. May all of you be loved by that special someone who has that smile-giving ability.

I love to hear from readers. Please e-mail me at or visit me at to find out my latest news.

Happy reading!
