Aumelan Character Sketch


A while back we had a little photo shoot with some fantastic young people who are excited about my new series, Aumelan. We had a lot of fun, and I'm excited to share the first skit with you. I hope you enjoy this sneak peek into the world of Aumelan, starring Dee, Losette, Iolet, and a just a tad bit of Tara. *smile*

Dee:  How did things go while I was in the World of the Sun with Chad, Losette?

Losette:  Oh, Dee, I helped a lot! Iolet made Mistress Tarah's special cream desert when Master Tyro and Master Styne came for dinner.

Losette:  She let me take the bread out of the oven and place it on a plate. Then I had a thought to make the desert even more special! I put the bread pan on the pie's creamy top like a hat. Oh, Dee, it was so funny! It went slippy slide to the side!

Losette:  Mistress Tara was not happy with me.
Dee:  Oh, Losette.

Iolet:  Losette does not belong in the kitchen, for sure.

Dee:  I think it is best for you to stick to cleaning, Losette.

Until next time, may your dreams be magical.

RoseAnn DeFranco's SECONDHAND ROMANCE Book Blast


Brothers of Audubon Springs Series, #1
Genre:  Contemporary Romantic Comedy

When Emma Grant returns to her family's Audubon Springs beach house to fulfill the stipulations of her father's will, she has every intention of forcing her former lover out of the house for good. She's never fit into her wealthy family and would prefer avoiding her past, but with her brother threatening to reveal her young daughter, she has no choice.

Rafe Iuliano has other plans. The wealthy Grants tried to bribe him out of Emma's life years ago, but he's determined to prove once and for all that a master carpenter is worthy of Emma and the house.

Their ridiculous and steamy battle for the house reignites the love and passion that bloomed between them years ago. But when Rafe discovers she's kept their daughter a secret for two years, can he overcome anger and pride to claim his family and the love of his life, or will the deception drive a final wedge between them?

Brothers of Audubon Springs Series, #2
Genre:  Contemporary Romantic Comedy

Annie O'Malley's dream of owning a secondhand bookstore in tight-knit Audubon Springs is coming true. Still reeling from her parents' sudden deaths, she believes that signs or messages can be found within the pages of books. She loves her job and has made plenty of friends but longs for the acceptance only love and a family can provide.

Tony Iuliano is there to fix the wiring in her shop. He doesn't believe in fate, magic, or the power of a good book. All this combined with his sexy-as-sin presence and all-knowing attitude infuriates Annie. The quirky bookworm intrigues him enough to accept her bet to read a book from her shop. When he discovers a stack of fifty-year-old love letters in the book, he wants to leave the past alone, but seeing it as a sign, Annie challenges him to read the letters and search for the long-lost lovers or lose the bet.

While shaking the dust off several ill-fated romances and fighting their attraction at every turn, the pair soon become the town gossip daily special. If they can stop arguing long enough, they may just discover this particular sign was meant for them all along.



RoseAnn DeFranco grew up in upstate NY with her nose in a book and a song in her heart. Following the pursuit of a musical theatre career in NYC, she turned her creative energy to writing funny, steamy romance with heart. A NJ shore transplant, she enjoys time spent at the beach with her family and would love to one day live in a quaint shore town like the fictional town from her BROTHERS OF AUDUBON SPRINGS series.
