Website Vanishing Act

I'm Happy NowApologies to anyone who tried to visit my website in the last 10 hours. A scheduled move by my web host of its servers was the cause, bringing the site down completely last night so they could physically move the hardware. So happy to have everything working again.

Have a great Sunday!

Endings and Opportunities

Happy Friday, or it would be if I hadn’t closed the door on an opportunity today. A shame really, endings are not fun, but there you have it. Not everything works out the way we hope. Never mind. There is always something else around the corner if you’re open and willing to take risks that you’ll fail.

Apple Homegrown Promotion

I had  great fun last weekend reading Jade Lee’s the Groom’s Gamble. Such a lovely story. Gave me that warm fuzzy feeling I love at the end of an absorbing romance and I’d happily read the novella again. Here’s the skinny on the plot:

grooms-gamble.jpg

Lyncott, great grandaughter of the Duke of Bucklynde, has a secret. Years ago she was attacked and still bears the terrible scars. To escape the scandal and the reminders, she left everything behind to become housekeeper to a Scottish brother and sister.

Gregory Murray, the Earl Of Hartfell, has a secret as well – he harbors a deep attraction to his housekeeper, Mrs. Lyncott. He knows she has a past, but doesn’t know how to fix the pain that still haunts her. His investigation leads him to the darkest London gaming hell and a villain too powerful to destroy.

Can his love overcome her desperate past? Can she risk her heart despite the evil that still haunts her nightmares?

 

Well, worth grabbing as it seems to be free right now too!  For more details visit Jade Lee’s website.

What’s Next for me

Revising Keepsake and Just a Dream is my work for the next solid month.

Well, that’s it for me this week. I’ve got my ereader charged and ready for a relaxing night on the couch with someone else’s hot hero. Hope you have a similar weekend. 🙂

Oh, and thanks so much dear readers for snapping up a copy of An Accidental Affair since release day. It’s an Amazon Regency Romance Bestseller!

Aside from good news, I’m also sharing a teaser from An Accidental Affair too! Enjoy.

“What I want precisely is my business to know.” Merrick eased back from Louisa, offering an apologetic smile. “I do appreciate whatever advice you can offer, my dear.”

She pouted. “Whoever you marry had better deserve your skills in the bedchamber. You will find you sacrifice much freedom in a marriage.”

“That is true.” And it was also not. The lady he married would be the one to sacrifice much. The rumors of his father’s misdeeds had plagued Merrick his entire life. His mother had fled society eventually, humiliated and hurt because it was all too true. Once Merrick married, he feared that his wife could be subject to the same sort of speculation.

Yet he needed a son—a legitimate heir to take responsibility for the estate and all those who depended on him.

So in return for taking him on, and the burden of his father’s legacy, Merrick would make his own pledge. Fidelity. His wife would be the only one to bear his children. There would never be a bastard child bearing his likeness. He would not cause the same pain as he had witnessed in his parents’ marriage. He had told no one of his thoughts on the subject because in truth, he expected to be disbelieved. However, he had come to the decision that the woman bound to him for the rest of her life deserved the same consideration.
