A Duchess By Midnight is Here!

July 26, 2022

I’m thrilled to share the story of Miss Drewsmina Trelayne and Ian Clayblack, the Duke of Lachlan in A Duchess by Midnight. The novel, which is #3 in my “Awakened by a Kiss” series, comes out today in paperback, digital, and audio.

A Duchess by Midnight is the story of a so-called “wicked stepsister” who has changed her attitude and outlook and works with awkward debutantes to help them feel more confident. She is hired as professional stylist for the wild-child nieces of the Duke of Lachlan and discovers wild feelings for her new boss as well.

The tropes here are “caught in the act”/forced-to-marry, make-overs, governess+employer, and a little bit of Ugly Duckling on the side. It’s full of heat, heart, and humor — and early reviews have been glowing.

“The hallmarks of a Charis Michaels novel are a fast pace, humor, and an over-the-top plot…and A Duchess by Midnight follows suit. It’s the perfect vacation read, stay-cation read, or simply an escape from your day-to-day.”

I hope readers enjoy Drew and Lachlan’s story as much as I enjoyed exploring the world of Cinderella to write it. Look for A Duchess by Midnight at your favorite bookstore or order from any of these digital retailers, including signed copies from my local independent bookstore Old Town Books in Alexandria, Virginia (they ship nationwide!).
