My newest historical romance written as Gayle Callen will be set in Scotland--in castles! Read all about it here.

Sin and Surrender just sold to Czechoslovakia!

I write contemporary romances under the name Emma Cane

Sin and Surrender has been nominated by RT BookReviews Magazine for the Reviewers' Choice Awards for Best British-Isle-Set Historical of 2011.

Wicked Sinful Nights won the 2010 Booksellers' Best Award in the Historical Category!

Just heard that the digital version of Sin and Surrender will be available for a limited time for only $2.99. Also, my Gayle Callen title, A Most Scandalous Engagement, will be available for $4.99. A great deal!

Sin and Surrender will be published in the Netherlands. It's really neat when I get a copy and see the cover they chose.

Sin and Surrender just received a B+ from All About Romance. They said, "...a great read," and "Latham may make a new Medieval convert out of you, too." Romance Junkies said, "Sin and Surrender is a thoroughly scrumptious read." and "Written so formidably well, that by the end of the book, satisfaction absolutely reigns supreme."

Happy New Year! Sin and Surrender is now available! Hope you enjoy it!

My new book, Sin and Surrender, hits bookstores at the end of the month. Check out the beautiful cover, and come back soon to read the excerpt. RT Bookreviews Magazine says my book is "a deeply touching love story" and "not easily forgotten."

I've recently returned from the Romance Writers of America conference in Orlando. If you'd like to see pictures, check out my Gayle Callen website, and click on Photo Gallery!

I also write as Gayle Callen, and my new Victorian historical romance, In Pursuit of a Scandalous Lady, is now available! You can read all about it at my other website.

Taken and Seduced just sold to Thailand!

RT Bookreviews Magazine said Wicked, Sinful Nights was a "sensual read"!

I just put up the cover and excerpt for my January release, Wicked, Sinful Nights. Love the color of the heroine's gown against her hair!

Another foreign sale, this time for One Knight Only--to Japan. I have a copy of the Japanese version of Thrill of the Knight--it's just too cool to page through and know that those symbols represent my words.

I just found out that Taken and Seduced sold to Spain! Also, I have a new book on the shelves, Never Marry a Stranger, written as Gayle Callen.

Good news!  Secrets of the Knight just finaled in two contests, the National Readers Choice Award, and the Book Buy's Best Contest.

I found out I had some new foreign sales! Secrets of the Knight sold to Russia, and Taken and Seduced sold to the Netherlands. This summer, after I finish one of my Victorians written as Gayle Callen, I'll be working on the third book in my "Born to Be Bladesmen" trilogy about three brothers raised to be warriors. The first was Taken and Seduced and the second is Wicked, Sinful Nights (to be published in January 2010). I don't have a title yet, but I have the beginnings of a plot...

After meeting a crazy deadline at the beginning of the month--and then dealing with taxes--I finally uploaded an excerpt for Taken and Seduced. The book hits the shelves at the end of the March.


I finally uploaded my new cover--and I'm so excited! Taken and Seduced will be released in April, and it's the first of my new trilogy. Come back in March to read the excerpt! Also, I've added an "events" page, where I have links to videos and interviews I've done online.


Secrets of the Knight is available today! Hope you're all able to find a copy. And please let me know what you think! You can read an excerpt on my bookshelf, or read the first 20% of the book online at Avon Books.


I recently received my first copy of Thrill of the Knight in a Dutch edition. Take a look at the different cover!


I just read the first review for Secrets of the Knight! Romance Novel TV said "Julia Latham has swiftly moved to the top of my auto buy list for medieval romances." You can read the rest of the review at their website.
