The banns have been called, the date is set, but he’s falling fast and hard for the wrong woman.

When her parents announce they intend to break their promise to remain in London society for another year, Charlotte Waters is also given an ultimatum—make a suitable match immediately or start packing her trunks. Since leaving England is the last thing she wants, Charlotte puts aside her foolish longing for love and throws herself into the hunt for any proposal of marriage with the help of her good friends. However, her persistent infatuation for an engaged earl proves a great distraction when it becomes clear that his life is in peril…and Charlotte is the only one who’s noticed.

Winston Bell, Earl of Hurlston, has his position in society, a loving mother, loyal friends, and an arranged marriage he’s willing honor for duty, if not love—until a sweet, brave, and normally blushing wallflower puts herself in danger to save his life. His gratitude slowly blossoms into an attraction to a woman he shouldn’t long to seek out at every turn. But when another attempt is made on his life, Charlotte Waters is fighting right by his side again, transforming attraction to deep desire. Can he prevent falling further under the spell of a woman he shouldn’t want?

Seduced in Secret is a full-length regency historical romance. It’s the eighteenth book in the steamy Distinguished Rogues series but can be read as a stand-alone.

The year is really flying by isn’t it? So much has changed and there’s still so much to do. Good thing I love my job: writing and publishing. This month is all about the upcoming release of the Christmas Kisses Anthology. October 12 is the date. Mark your calendars. There’s still plenty of time to pre-order your copy at 99c, too. You can find links to pre-order on this page. My story, Let it Snow is last but hey…someone has to claim that spot. 😀

Now onto something new from me and the purpose of this post…to let you know about the next Distinguished Rogues novel

It’s Spring again

It’s spring again! I love the start of warmer weather.

Spring usually means more sunlight for me—going in holidays, date nights. But I’m living under stay at home orders right now. Going out is not allowed unless for essentials like food shopping and doctors appointments—not that I needed that last one. In good news though, I finally got my first Pfizer vaccination in my arm and the second one is about a week away. Yay for me.

You would think these conditions would mean more words down—more writing done. But it actually hasn’t worked that way for me. I had no idea how much I needed to go out until I couldn’t do it. I always thought I was more introvert than social butterfly. Isn’t it great to learn new things about yourself every year?

But it wasn’t all bad on the work front in August. I did manage to do some long overdue tasks.

I updated a few book covers:

The Wedding Affair, Rebel Hearts book one, has been out for a while and I decided it needed a new cover designed. I’m really happy with the new couple and over all cover and the rest of the series have had a couple of minor tweaks as well as you can see below.

• I also changed all the art for the covers on the Wild Randall series. The e-books should have updated on retailers by now and you can refresh your kindle app manually if you need the new pretties. The other vendor’s should push through the new covers to your reading device so you’ll probably find them in your Ereader already. The print cover changes for Wild Randalls are coming later in the year.

And last but not least…

The next Distinguished Rogues novel for pre-order has been set up on all retailers. No cover yet and no blurb either. I’m still writing the story, but I’m closing in on the end. You can find the pre-order links on the Seduced in Secret book page if you want to order in advance.

Well, I think that’s it for me this month. Of course the Christmas Kisses Anthology is coming out next month and I’ll talk about that more next month. But the stories are wonderful. I can’t wait for you to read them.

Till next time.

Cheers and stay safe.

The Lady Tamed is here!

The Lady Tamed is here!

She hired him to be a temporary lover. Should she be worried that her family approve?

Fortune hunters and fools. Those are the gentlemen Fanny Rivers has endured since her husband’s passing. Men who believe women too feeble-brained to manage a fortune, much less help it grow. So for her sister’s upcoming wedding festivities, she’s combined her business acumen with her habit of collecting strays—hiring an actor to play her besotted beau. And it’s working marvelously. Too marvelously. Before long, her attraction to Jeremy makes it difficult to discern fact from fiction, and Fanny herself is in danger of falling for her own scheme.

Jeremy Dawes can scarcely believe his luck when Fanny Rivers agrees to be his patroness. Despite learning he’s the latest in a long line of charity cases, he willingly takes on the most complicated role of his fledgling career—that of a proper gentleman. She’ll never need know of his unsavory beginnings, though the closer they become, the more Jeremy wishes he could be what she deserves. It’s only after a thrilling moment of intimacy—and a regrettable decision by Fanny—that Jeremy finds unexpected allies in the negotiation for his savvy lady’s heart.

The Lady Tamed is a steamy regency historical romance. Thank you for pre-ordering and if you don’t have it yet, you really should check out this unconventional role-reversal novel.

Meet the Hero: Jeremy Dawes

Meet the Hero: Jeremy Dawes from The Lady Tamed

Cover image for the Lady TamedJeremy Dawes had never been so far from London in his life. Or willingly remained so close to other human beings for so long, either. Jeremy escaped the close confines of the mail coach for the wide-open space of the Stapleton village square and looked around, uncertain of what he expected but filled with enthusiasm.

The little village was awash with new sights and sound that he drank in. There was a friendliness to the inhabitants that he found reassuring almost immediately. Jeremy quickly concluded that the fine people of this village were unlikely to steal his new hat from his head, or his expensive luggage, but he kept a wary eye out just in case. Thieves were everywhere…and he should know.

Jeremy glanced at the coachmen shouting out a spate of orders to everyone and returned to the conveyance. He was anxious to collect his trunk, aware the quality of workmanship was better than those of most who traveled the public conveyance with him, and that it had marked him as someone worth stealing from. In Jeremy’s experience, this had to be the first time ever he’d appeared more prosperous than his fellow man. It was quite a disconcerting situation to find himself in, actually.

Jeremy had been born poor and had expected to be so all his life. He’d scrimped and stolen to get by since he’d been orphaned as a boy, too young to remember he’d had a family once upon a time. He’d found employment at a theater in recent years and enjoyed modest success supporting the lead actors and understudies as he learned the craft of pretending to be someone else. But to get ahead in life, he’d learned that actors needed a patron.

He’d found his…Lady Fanny Rivers. Suddenly having coins to spare in his pocket was very much a novelty still. He had kept his first shilling, to remind himself of where he began. Now he was about to embark on his first role as a leading man in a very private play. His only regret was that no one in the company would ever see his performance.

As baggage was tossed down carelessly, Jeremy rushed to collect his new traveling trunk before it was damaged in the drop. He juggled it as well as the smaller case he’d been given to bring by Lady Rivers’ London man of business.

“When you’re ready, sir,” a man called out.

Jeremy jerked around for the location of that voice and spotted a sour old man watching the coach being unloaded from a nearby gig. Lady Rivers had promised he’d be met and conveyed to her father’s estate, rather than having to walk the whole way on foot. The fellow might look unhappy, but he was clearly an upper servant of some sort.

He drew closer to the fellow. No rings on his fingers. A pocket watch on a tarnished chain across his belly. Right-handed. “Are you from Stapleton Manor? Did Lady Rivers send you?”

The fellow paused to suck on his teeth before answering, assessing Jeremy in turn. “I am, and she did.”

Relieved he’d not have to wait all day to finish his journey, Jeremy strode forward, smiling. Time to act. “Mr. Jeremy Dawes.”

The old man raised a brow and then looked him up and down again. “Are you sure? You don’t look like one of her usual friends.”

“Yes. I am.” He frowned though, worried he hadn’t perfected his costume. “What do her usual friends usually look like?”

“Useless perfumed tulips, too lazy to wipe their own behinds,” the fellow declared.

Well that wasn’t him.

 

The Lady Tamed releases April 6.
