bookbub featured deal the duke and I book cover imageWidowed Nicolas Westfall, the Duke of Stapleton, cannot prevent the upcoming debut for his youngest daughter no matter how much he wishes her eventual marriage wouldn’t leave him all alone. Convinced to host a Christmas Ball to prepare her for the season, he’s aware he’s considered a catch on the marriage mart too, but Nicolas is drawn to companion Gillian Thorpe instead.

Gillian was hired to prepare the duke’s daughter for her first season, but its not easy when the girl hasn’t the least interest in the men and the widowed father makes her knees weak when he laughs with her. Gillian respects and admires (perhaps too frequently) the Duke of Stapleton and when she’s lured into a mistletoe kiss with him, will she be able to stop at one or even want to?

You should find the ebook free at all retailers. If not please let me know immediately.

Read an Excerpt from the Duke and I…

“Ah, there you are, Thorpe,” the Duke of Stapleton exclaimed. “How fortunate I am to find you in this out of the way spot. Were you waiting for me?”
Gillian blushed deeply as he paused at her side. She was outside his study door, so of course it might look that way to him.
Judging by the amusement in his tone, he wasn’t concerned she might be dangling after him. “I assure you it was not intentional. I wanted to see if the weather outside had cleared enough for a short walk. Oh look,” she said quickly, “there is Mr. Whitfield at last, joining your daughters for a stroll about the grounds.”
“I sent him out to put a stop to my daughter’s rather transparent attempt at matchmaking,” Stapleton promised as he brushed against her side. “Forgive me for teasing you today. I know you are the model of propriety.”
“I do try, Your Grace.”
Tried and failed last night—rather spectacularly, in fact. Gillian had not stopped thinking about her employer ever since their kiss, and in ways she was not supposed to consider him. It was very likely she could have shared his bed, if she’d not been scared witless by the very great risk she’d taken with her reputation.
He glanced behind them. “I shouldn’t have kissed you last night.”
She startled. “But you did. Why?”
He appeared puzzled. “I took advantage of you having put mistletoe in my pocket.”
“But I didn’t put mistletoe in your pocket.” Her eyes widened as she realized what must have happened with the mistletoe.
Jessica had put it in her father’s pocket!

New Release: An Earl of Her Own

Hey, Romance Fans. I’m super excited to share the news that my new book An Earl of Her Own is available to read today.


The Saints and Sinners story so far..

At Christmas, the Duke of Stapleton was dreading the loss of his youngest daughter (Jessica) to marriage, but then fell in love with the paid companion – Gillian. They married in London before Jessica’s season began.

Unfortunately, Jessica did not find a husband while she was away in London. Upon returning home she discovered love was waiting for her there and accepted a marriage proposal from her best friend–Gideon Whitfield. Everyone is pleased about the match.

My new story begins as Jessica’s upcoming marriage is announced and there’s so much to do at Stapleton Manor to please the duke and make this a wedding to be remembered. The task of preparing the manor for the event has fallen on Rebecca Warner’s shoulders due to the new duchess’s expanding waistline and ill health.  Rebecca doesn’t have time for distractions and she sure doesn’t expect she’s singled out for seduction by the usually drunk Lord Rafferty.

You can find out more on the book page. You’ll find the first two chapters to read plus all the purchase links you could ever need. If you pre-ordered a copy I hope you enjoy the story. And if you loved it, be sure to leave a review. You’ll make my day if you do.

Marriage is about finding that special someone you want to annoy
for the rest of your life!

Saints and Sinners Book 3

Rebecca Warner had a chance to be happy once, until her late husband callously broke her heart, and someone began running up debts in her name. Humiliated by the prospect of financial ruin, she’ll first help arrange the perfect house party to celebrate her sister’s marriage and then head to London to find the culprit—or she would if a certain annoying earl stopped distracting her.

Lord Rafferty enjoys tempting pretty ladies and getting in Rebecca’s way has long been a favorite pastime. She’s everything he’s not—reserved, committed to decorum, a pessimist—but then an accident reveals her life is filled with regret. With a greater awareness of her need for recognition, Rafferty seeks Rebecca’s counsel on the best way to raise his motherless daughter. He has no intention of putting his heart on the line, but when Rebecca turns to him late one night…it’s the start of something extraordinary.


AN EARL OF HER OWN is book three in the Saints and Sinners series, but can be read as a standalone novel, of course. The book will release on February 12, 2019 and you can preorder the ebook today for Kindle, Kobo, Nook and Apple Books today.

If you prefer reading from print, physical copies will be available to preorder closer to the release date. Keep an eye on the website page for the book for additional retailer links mid January and I’ll be posting excerpts from the novel there too. I hope you love the story, and my hero Lord Rafferty, as much as I do.
