Cover Reveal: A Duchess by Midnight

January 31, 2022

It gives me such great pleasure to reveal the cover to my upcoming book, A Duchess by Midnight, out Tuesday, July 26th.

This is the third and final book in my Awakened by a Kiss sereis, which gives the happily-ever-after treatment to overlooked sideline characters from fairytales. A Duchess by Midnight catches up with a stepsister from Cinderella, pairing Finishing School instructor, Miss Drewsmina Trelayne, with Ian Clayblack, the Duke of Lachlan, and his wayward nieces.

The lush and colorful cover captures the vivacity, whimsy, and heat of this book, and I couldn’t be more pleased to book-end the trilogy with these beautiful models and radiant art.

Although this book won’t drop until summer, pre-order links are up now. Watch this space for an excerpt coming soon. In the meantime, you can read the back-cover copy alongside the cover art.

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!
