Any Groom Will Do

May 26, 2017

I am thrilled to share with everyone that my next book, the first in my new series The Brides of Belgravia, has a title! Readers can look forward to Any Groom Will Do, which is now preordering in e-book format from several vendors:

The Brides of Belgravia series is a spinoff of my 2016 Bachelor Lords trilogy. Two secondary characters, Joseph Chance and Jon Stoker, now all grown up, take center stage. Since so many readers have asked, I have posted some advance information about the story lines and characters on my coming soon page.

I promise as soon as I have a cover I will share it here first!

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!
