When You Wish Upon A Duke is Here!

August 24, 2021

I’m thrilled to see my 8th novel, When You Wish Upon A Duke, hit stores, eReaders, and eardrums (audio book!) today. I’ve been a fan of this heroine, Miss Isobel Tinker, since I first conceived the idea of Tinkerbell in Regency, England.

This is the second book in my Awakened By A Kiss series, which features sideline characters from fairy tales who get their own happy ending. The first book, A Duchess A Day, followed The Huntsman from Snow White, and I’m putting the finishing touches on the final book, which is inspired by a stepsister from Cinderella. I’ve had so much fun with these books—I’m calling them “fairy-tale adjacent”—and have loved hearing readers find all the Disney references and plot twists and turns that align (or not) with the source material.

I’ve posted an excerpt of When You Wish Upon A Duke plus all the buying options, including a choice to order a signed copy from my local, independent bookstore. I’m also very active on Instagram and love interacting with readers there, follow me @CharisMichaels. Happy reading!

When You Wish for an Excerpt…

August 5, 2021

I’m thrilled to share a sneak peek of my new book, When You Wish Upon A Duke.

This is book 2 of my Awakened By A Kiss series, which follow sideline characters from fairy tales to their own happily-ever-after. While Book 1, A Duchess A Day, told the story of the Huntsman from Snow White, When You Wish Upon A Duke is inspired by Tinkerbell from Peter Pan.

Miss Isobel Tinker spent her childhood cavorting around Europe with a fast crowd. Now she works in a London Travel shop, using her experience and language skills to live a safe, reliable life.

Jason “North” Beckett, the duke of Northumberland, desperately needs a translator for his last mission with the Foreign Office. Isobel Tinker seems ideal, discreet and unknown, but she’s also uncooperative, stubborn, and disarmingly beautiful.

Passion and adventure sizzle as they battle pirates and their magnetic attraction to each other in this sweeping re-imagining of Tinkerbell in Regency England.

I cordially invite you to lean-in to summer with this whimsical excerpt and peruse the order links for the book! The paperback will be available in stores on August 24. Signed copies + free swag can be ordered from my local, independent bookstore, Old Town Books. Digital eBooks and the audiobook can be ordered from your favorite eRetailer.
