Miss Merton is ready and waiting!

Book 4 in the Miss Mayhem series features Melanie Merton and Walter George is winging its way from retailers to your mailbox or digital devices. Thank goodness for that. The waiting was killing me.

If you pre-ordered the book thank you so much. If you grab a copy this week I really appreciate your interest.

You can order your copy through:

amazon  ibooks bn  kobo all-romance-ebooks Google Play

When you finish reading, feel free to contact me and let me know what you think of Melanie by the end. My editor thought I’d go the easy way and was surprised by my choice for the ending.

If you take the time to leave a review at Amazon, Goodreads or Apple, you’ll make my day!



It’s all about the hero

It’s just two short weeks until the release of Miss Merton’s Last Hope and I thought it was time to shine a light on my hero Walter George. Walter has been a constant presence in the Miss Mayhem series. Brother to Imogen (of Miss George’s Second Chance) and a best friend to all the men. The ladies trust him but don’t gush over him. And he’s not been altogether happy with one particular neighbour of late.

Valentine rubbed his hands together briskly. “All I need next is to see my sister happily married.”
Walter nodded, as he was expected to do when the subject of marrying sisters off came up in conversation. His own sister had married a neighbor and friend so he had plenty of experience in this field.
He considered the lady under discussion. She was lovely in her own way, tall, perfect complexion, a beauty, but she wasn’t the least bit approachable. “A tricky proposition, in your case. How many proposals has she turned down?”
“Oh, eleven, I think it is.”
Walter grunted, surprised by the number. He’d only heard of a handful of local beaus who had been turned down. “That many?”
“Be a friend and don’t spread that about. I’m still hoping for one more who might be acceptable before we get to unlucky number thirteen.”
Walter shook his head, unable to fathom why Miss Melanie Merton was so damn particular about choosing a husband. He was acquainted with a few of her former suitors and they were all quite decent sorts and intelligent enough to please even her father. None had possessed a great fortune or a title. “Maybe number twelve will suit.”

Hint: Number 12 suitor has NO chance! LOL

To find out what happens next you’ll need to order your copy of the book.

After a book release

What does a writer do after a book release? Start thinking of the next book almost immediately. Or at least that’s what I’ve done this last week. I’m planning a new series for next year – cruising the web for inspiration and combing through research notes about the British Navy. Totally fun and time consuming! Everyone should have this in their day job.

Reviewer Shout Out!

Miss Radley’s Third Dare was made available to NetGalley reviewers in July and I’d like to give each Netgalley reviewer a huge bouquet of virtual flowers for posting your reviews online so quickly. Thanks a bunch – roses, daisies, or carnations.

To those who purchased their copy and read and reviewed – again thanks and bless you for taking the time to share your opinion with the reading community.

To everyone who bought the book – I really hoped you enjoyed Miss Radley’s adventure when you read it. She was a hoot to write and I miss her already!

After a book release – when’s the next?

Book Four

By now you might have noticed I’ve updated the website with Miss Merton’s Last Hope details – cover and blurb. Isn’t Melanie pretty? Redeeming this girl was always going to be a challenge and sorting her out was definitely a tricky proposition.

The last book in the Miss Mayhem series doesn’t release until October 13 but you can pre-order now if you prefer. Visit her page to read the full blurb and I’ll be updating her page with snippets from the final book shortly.

Beyond the next release

Whoosh! I’ve just emailed Reason to Wed to my super fab editor, Kelli Collins. Once the edits are back for Esme and Windermere’s story I’ll update the website with a better idea of a release date and book cover for that couple. Keep watch on the coming soon page or follow my Amazon.com Author Page to be notified when I add new books for sale.
