HOPE AT A GLANCE
Hope's debut novel, A Rogue's Pleasure, was nominated for a Romantic Times Book Reviewers Award for Best First Historical as well as one of three books to launch Berkley/Jove's line of "Seduction" romances.
Most of Hope's books feature feline characters based on her real-life cats — Vanquished (Molly Jane), It's a Wonderfully Sexy Life (Sweeney), The Haunting (Willie), Enslaved (Mia), Strokes of Midnight (Daisy), Bound to Please (Muffin), Every Breath You Take (Tessa and China Blue), and Twelve Nights (Eddie).
From 1996 to 2002, Hope designed and led a national grassroots campaign for a Spay/Neuter commemorative postage stamp. 250,000 stamps depicting former shelter pets "Kirby" and "Samantha" were issued in September 2002 and subsequently sold out, a Postal Service record.
For five years, Hope lived in a turn-of-the-century Victorian Revival home in the heart of the Fredericksburg Historic District. Hope's former house is the model for the heroine's home in Hope's Harlequin Extreme Blaze, The Haunting (April 2007).
Hope is invited to launch the first-ever historical miniseries for Harlequin's super-sexy Blaze line. Bound to Please, set in Medieval Scotland, released on July 1, 2008 and soon sold out on EHarlequin.com. The book remains available on other online retail venues.
