Paperback Release of Any Groom Will Do

March 26, 2018

After six weeks as an ebook, I’m happy to celebrate the paperback release of my fourth book, Any Groom Will Do! This book launches my new Brides of Belgravia series and introduces readers to three young women who will do anything to move to London—even marry strangers.

The digital release of  Any Groom Will Do has enjoyed some lovely reviews. Library Journal said, “With a talented and charming heroine and a wealth of scenic detail, this smart, breezy romance gives the classic fake marriage theme a new shine.” The reviewer at Roses are Blue said, “I am bowled over by her lovely writing and the emotions she generated. A couple of the scenes were truly heart-wrenching, and I was totally captivated. I believe I’ve found a new must-read author.”

You can begin reading the first two chapters free on my website. The Brides series stands alone, but some characters do carry-over from my Bachelor Lords of London trilogy.

Download your digital copy of Any Groom Will Do today or order the paperback from your favorite internet bookseller.

Any Groom Will Do is Now Available!

February 13, 2018

Any Groom Will Do released in ebook today! The paperback comes out on April 3 (pre-order links for paperback will be available any day — we’ll post them here), but you can order the ebook at any time.

Launching the Brides of Belgravia trilogy, Any Groom whisks readers to 1831, the pre-dawn of the Victorian age (you can get a glimpse of this in my online excerpt).

Shipping scions, like the Earl of Cassin, import exotic treasures to England and the posh new neighborhood of Begravia is being built, block by luxurious block. The Brides series sprints down the aisle when Lady Willow Hunnicut marries Cassin for the opportunity to live in London. Like most marriages of convenience, however, Willow and Cassin get so much more than they bargained for.

Cover and Excerpt for Any Groom Will Do!

The new Brides of Belgravia trilogy connects loosely with my Bachelor Lords of London series and includes return characters as well a cast of new personalities that I hope readers will love. Any Groom Will Do kicks off the series with the story of young woman desperate to leave the countryside for London and the begrudging earl she marries to do it.

After the Bachelor Lords Comes…The Brides of Belgravia!

April 13, 2017

I am delighted to announce my next trilogy from Avon-Impulse, which launches with Book I (as yet untitled) in October 2017.

The Brides of Belgravia series features three friends from Surrey with three urgent problems. For different reasons, each young woman needs to leave the countryside and build a new life in London. But proper young ladies from fine families dare not move to to the city and set up house all alone, oh no.

Married women however, can do much of what they please. Especially married women with absent husbands….

The friends contrive to arrange their own marriages of convenience to “gentleman sailors.” They place an advertisement on the docks in London offering their hefty dowries in trade for the necessary “Mrs.” before their married sur names. Now the women can do as they please, while the men sail away with heavy purses and no obligations.

They are the Brides of Belgravia, and the fun begins when one by one, the absentee husbands sail back into port to claim the wives they so hastily married.

Visit my coming-soon page to learn more about the series and stay tuned for updates on book titles, covers, excerpts, and pre-order links.

 

 

Don’t Leave 2016 without One for the Rogue

December 19, 2016

It’s been four months since the release of One for the Rogue , and I couldn’t be more thrilled with reader feedback and reviews.

Library Journal called Lady Emmaline, “a great heroine in a bad situation, creative and intelligent…” and “…readers will not be disappointed.”  Polished Bookworm said the book was, “beautiful, engaging, and utterly romantic.” But my favorite feedback comes from readers. Thank you to everyone who posted on Facebook or contacted me by e-mail. There is nothing quite like hearing from readers who enjoyed this final installment Bachelor Lords series.

Please stay tuned to learn about my next trilogy, Brides of Belgravia, which launches from Avon-Impulse in October 2017. (Hint:  former stable boy Joseph Chance and street rat Jon Stoker are all grown up and receive their Happily Ever Afters.) In the meantime, I’d like to wish everyone a safe and healthy 2017!
