Miss Radley’s Third Dare is ready to be read!

Miss Radley's Third Dare cover imageAt long last I can share Miss Radley’s Third Dare, the third story about the residents of Brighton during the regency. Thank you for your patience too dear readers. I know it’s been a very long time since Miss George’s Second Chance. This story is set three months after Julia dared Valentine Merton to a race in the sea. He lost fair and square but all has not been smooth sailing in their little community. Julia has suffered, Valentine is annoyed (with everyone else) and the more he tries to pull away the more she’d tries to make everything right again. I love how they are together because they were not what I intended when I first imagined this series of characters. Yes, Julia is something of a hoyden and Valentine is still clever and fun but together they are something special. The most unconventional match I’ve ever written.

I do hope you enjoy Miss Radley’s Third Dare.

Goals for August

* Complete Reason to Wed for my awesome editor Kelli Collins by the middle of the month. I’m almost ready to send.

* Work on something completely different for the remaining days of August. Vampires! The story will likely be very rough but its a means of feeding my creativity and who knows I might just publish it down the track. We’ll see how the story turn out.

* Get a Fitbit. A friend was showing me her device recently and explained how it keeps her motivated and honest about her daily exercise. I sit on my butt 5 days a week working at home so I need all the help I can get to remember to move. She’s in a group of other fitbit users who track their progress and meet challenges set by the group – that feature blew me away. I get bored working out solo and with the proof the device records I think I might have a chance to slim down by summer.

Get to Know Miss Radley’s Third Dare

Miss Radley's Third Dare cover imageAre you ready to get to know Miss Radley? This is a snippet from a scene between Miss Radley (Julia) and Lady Imogen Watson

“What will you do about your brother?”


Imogen burst out laughing. “Are you not being a trifle melodramatic, my dear?”

“It’s all I can do.” Julia sighed and twisted a red curl around her finger and tugged savagely. “Mr. Merton spoke to me on my way here but I could tell he’d rather have ignored me again. That’s almost as bad as being shouted at.”

Lectured, expected to give up her hoydenish ways and concentrate on finding a husband. Yes, ignored and avoided was ten times worse than anything her brother had thrown her way.


Don’t forget to pre-order your copy before the price increases.
