Release day for Guarding the Spoils

It’s here. It’s here. Release day for Guarding the Spoils has finally arrived. After months of planning, writing, editing and coaxing it along its ready to take its first steps into the world. Many thanks to my editor Anne Victory for her support and encouragement. I hope you all find Oliver as smexy as she did.

Guarding the Spoils

Elizabeth Turner once loved Oliver Randall, but was blind to his desire to travel without the encumbrance of a wife weighing him down. When she learned the truth, Beth settled for the security of a loveless marriage. Now a widow with a son to support, desperation has driven her into service at Romsey Abbey and directly into the path of the man she’d loved and lost.

Oliver has no intention of letting his dream of travel slip away again, even for a pretty face from his past. Since his return to the abbey, he’s planned a grand tour to the continent even while examining the astonishing emotional changes a decade apart from his brothers has wrought. The last thing Oliver wanted was stronger ties to the people living at Romsey. But then fate offers him both an affair and an unexpected friendship. Is it curiosity alone that stirs him, or the beginning of an unexpected adventure?

Guarding the Spoils is a 5 star read

Just wanted to share the first review for my upcoming release, Guarding the Spoils.  I couldn’t be happier that my characters were so loved … thanks so much  for posting the review to her website and to Goodreads. It’s 5 stars.

I really enjoyed the third book in the Wild Randalls Series by Heather Boyd. I was hooked from page one of Guarding the Spoils until the very end. I absolutely CAN NOT wait to read the next book in this series!

… I adored watching Oliver and Elizabeth’s relationship form. These two have so much to offer each other. They just have to figure out that their lives will be so much better together then living apart. Not only did I love the romance between Oliver and Elizabeth, I loved how they were slowly forming a family together.

… If you enjoy historical romancing with a big heaping of mystery thrown in I think you’ll enjoy this book.

Thanks again Crystal for the great review. I’m so glad you enjoyed the time you spent with Oliver and Elizabeth. <3

Sunday Snippet 5 Guarding the Spoils

Guarding the SpoilsHi ho, hi ho its time for another Sunday Snippet for WeWriWa. Have you had a great week? Me, I’ve been super busy. Time is flying around here as I’m hard at work on yet another novel in the Wild Randalls Series. Book 4 Hunting the Hero is the last one and I’m anxious to wrap it up well.

My snippet this week is from the upcoming release, Guarding the Spoils. The next section follows on directly from last week where Oliver was trying to get a bit of light reading done but his brother is rudely interrrupting him just for the sake of eating.


He was plotting his biggest escapade yet—a grand tour of the known world. A world far away from this library.

He plucked three volumes from the shelves at random—Greek, Italian, and French—and descended to the main floor. Just enough light reading to last him until morning. Unlike others in his family, he enjoyed reading at all hours of the day and night. He devoured books as quickly as his younger brother demolished a well-roasted leg of lamb at dinner. The years without such precious volumes were a gaping pit of boredom he needed to fill.
“Everyone is waiting on you to go into dinner.”
