Okay, so much for my New Year's resolution to blog more, right? If it's any consolation, it's because I've been so busy working on my Entangled books, dipping my toe into single title writing and scheduling appearances. I've got a bunch set up for June, July, September and October, and they're all on my newly updated calendar page. If you're anywhere nearby, I'd love to see you!
And now for the big news . . . Triple Score is a finalist in the erotic romance category of the National Readers' Choice Awards! This contest is super special because it's entirely judged by YOU, the readers. Winners will be announced at the Romance Writers of America national conference in Orlando (which I will be at - see the calendar page!) in July.
A new year brings new resolutions, and one of mine is to update this blog more. So I'm starting things right by bringing some good news for 2017!
First up, appearances. I've updated the calendar page to show where I'll be in the coming months. Like last year, I'm attending Barbara Vey's awesome author/reader event in Milwaukee in April. My lunch table is sold out, but you can still sit with me for breakfast if you're in the area. I promise goodies and hijinks.
Next, I'm excited to attend Lori Foster's author/reader get together in Cincinnati for the first time in June. I'll be sponsoring some shenanigans in one of the boardrooms with authors Kimberly Kincaid, Avery Flynn and Teri Stanley, and I'd love to see you there!
Then I'll be at the Romance Writers of America's annual convention in sunny Orlando in July. I hope to be signing books at the literacy signing on Saturday, which is free to attend and open to the public; I'll update you as soon as that's confirmed.
As for what's up next in terms of books, I'm THRILLED to share that I'm working on a two-book series for Entangled Publishing's Indulgence Imprint. No publication dates yet, but the first book - working title Built For Love - is due to my editor at the end of this month, so I should have some information on that soon. Here's the blurb from the announcement in Publisher's Weekly:
Booksellers’ Best award-winning author Regina Kyle’s BUILT FOR LOVE, in which a real estate mogul has a one-night stand with a sexy stranger only to find out she’s spearheading the fight against his latest development, in a two-book deal.
Last but not least, have you subscribed to my newsletter yet? It's easy to do using the form at the bottom of this page (and every page of my website). I send one out about four times a year, and it's the best way to keep track of my goings on. I'll be sending one soon with a super sweet deal on the Heating Up The Holidays anthology, including my Christmas novella, Sugar Plum Seduction. You don't want to miss it!
Happy New Year everyone, and here's hoping for a great 2017 for all!

Here’s a peek at what you’ll find in Heating Up the Holidays:
Please Have Snow by Amy Lamont
All curvaceous bartender Lily Barton wants for Christmas is a home to call her own. For Will Canter, the rugged, bad boy drummer of Sliding Violet, home is wherever the music—and the band’s tour bus—takes him. Can love, and a little holiday magic, give them both exactly what they want?
Sugar Plum Seduction by Regina Kyle
It’s Gunnar Rhodes’ first Christmas without his wife, and all he wants is to make it special for his seven-year-old daughter, even if that means letting her perform in the pretty new ballet teacher’s production of The Nutcracker. With Norah Pruitt’s professional dance career—and her engagement—cut short by a tragic accident, she’s determined to make her dance studio a success. Can the spirit of the season heal their wounds and help them find a second chance at love?
Ringing in the New by Nola Cross
When city girl Annie Grant comes to the little town of Everfield to help temporarily at her uncle’s business, she’s completely out of her element. And her attraction to attorney Rick Longstory only makes matters more confusing. Gradually the charming community draws her in. Now she must choose: Will she go back to the city and her high-powered career, or open her heart to a new way of life and the possibility of true love?
Christmas Eve by Kaylie Newell
Eve and Patrick thought their romance was long gone. It only takes a snowstorm and a sizzling night in a haunted house to resurrect the passion that was there all along.
A Holiday Prospect by Nina Bancroft
Tessa Blake loves her challenging new job as director of HR for a drilling company in rural North Dakota. But her sexy and driven new boss, Matthew Linden “Lind” Pearce, doubts Tessa’s ability to keep his workers safe in the field. When the two are forced to share cramped accommodations at the rig in the days before Christmas, both are compelled to confront their feelings for the other. Will this holiday bring these two a brighter prospect?
Operation: Christmas by Megan Ryder
When Ryan Holliday finds out his long-time crush, Paige Taylor, hates Christmas, he does the only thing he can. Seduces her over Christmas trees, cookies and shopping. But when the season is over, will their romance end or will they find a way to make it forever?
Sizzling in Snowflakes by Elisabeth Mayer
When homesick study abroad student, Kate Sullivan, can’t go home for Christmas, she settles for the next best thing: a holiday getaway with her roommates to the French Alps. She hopes four days on the slopes will keep her mind off missing her family and all their holiday traditions. The unexpected, late night arrival of four men she’d never met before was definitely not in her plans; neither was falling head over heels for one of them.
