Death Notice


A killer has something to say—and he’s using her obituary column to get his point across...

Then, a second incorrect obituary comes in, and a woman whose name matches the name of the deceased is murdered—on the date listed in the obituary. Now, Monroe realizes...

Claire's Corner Updates

Posted On 12:01 AM by Claire Ashgrove 0 comments

Hey all! It's been way too long since I've been here, but I've been swamped, and swamped, and swamped some more.

I'm popping in today because I have some news -- quite a bit actually!

First: Today is my RELEASE DAY for Waiting For Yes.

Gabrielle Warrenton gave up everything to pursue her dream of a first-class Egyptian Arabian breeding farm. Her future lies in her new stallion’s success. Though she possesses an exceptional eye for horseflesh, she lacks the training knowledge, and Bahadur Mamoon has a date with the nation’s most affluent show in three weeks. Nothing that would present a problem given his previous credentials. Only, the sellers disguised one critical fact—he’s crazy.

Jake Lindsey-Sullivan was once part of an exceptional Arabian training team. Under his mother’s guidance, he developed an instinctual talent, but she was the star, the cornerstone of his life. Until she met a premature death. Grief-stricken and plagued by guilt, Jake abandoned the world of horses. Now an over-the-road truck driver, he evades the memories.

When a snowstorm throws two Arabian professionals into close-quarters, they discover an engulfing passion. But will Mamoon rip open emotional scars, or forever seal them shut?

Waiting For Yes is available through The Wild Rose Press, and by order through bookstores everywhere. It is available in both digital and print formats.

Second -- I'm happy to announce that The Wild Rose Press has contracted my 2011 Christmas novella, A Broken Christmas, a heartwarming story about a broken soldier's Christmas homecoming.

Third -- A few weeks ago, my first romantic suspense novel, Untrustable, sold to Turkey as a thriller. I'm international -- yay! It will be out sometime in the next 18 months in hard cover.

Fourth -- On the heels of the Turkey sale, the same romantic suspense sold to Berkley, for their HEAT Line, as an erotic romantic suspense. This has prompted the creation of a second pen name -- Tori St. Claire

I anticipate some more news to share in the next few weeks too... hum. But as you can see, I've been super busy. Unfortunately, when those deadlines hit, my blogging time must take a backseat.

Keep writing folks! And keep commenting here too!
