FROM KATES NEWSLETTER:
THE ANTONAKOS MARRIAGE. This book sold out on the eharlequin web site before it was even officially released and it is a real bestseller, having appeared in the Waldenbooks Top Ten and been on the Bookscan Top 100 for three weeks!
I was delighted to learn that both my UK release THE ITALIAN'S FORCED BRIDE and the February/May Presents release have been nominated for the prestigious CataRomance Reviewers' Choice Awards for the first half of 2006.
Other news — the deadline I was working on was for a very important book — the second part of my brand-new, Sicilian Brothers duo, the first part of which will be SICILIAN HUSBAND, BLACKMAILED BRIDE, to be published in March 2007. That first book is Guido's story. The second book, his brother Vito's story is now accepted and will be published in June 2007 (These are UK dates, as soon as I know when they will be coming out in America, I will let you know). THE SICILIAN'S RED-HOT REVENGE is an important book because it will be my 50th title! I shall be planning celebrations and a new contest for this great event next year.

Excellent interview with Sandra Marton on THE PINK HEART SOCIETY. What I can't wait for is quote:
The final book in the trilogy I mentioned earlier. It’s about three good friends: Nicolo Barbieri, Damian Aristedes and Lucas Reyes. The men are all royals, all pure Alpha. They’re rich, powerful, sexy and, yes, gorgeous. They’re also quite human, as my heroes always are, meaning each has a good heart, a sense of humor, and they’ve all had to fight their way to where they are now. Not a one is ready for love or marriage or, heaven forbid, fatherhood, but that’s what Fate (and I) have in store for them. SM

A MISTRESS FOR THE TAKING will debut here in the US January 2007 and let me tell you it's fabulous. You can read my review on Amazon.UK or The Pink Heart Society.
Here is a review from Cataromance:
Talented Annie West sweeps us away to the world of high finance, obsession and romance. Her characters are strong with passionate zeal for life and devotion to family and each other. A MISTRESS FOR THE TAKING captured and ensnared me in its fresh entertaining storyline, leaving me thoroughly entertained and satisfied. I whole heartedly recommend Ms West’s debut novel."
