I'm on Embracing Romance today talking about weepy heroines (and confessing my own earlier tendency to cry for hours). I'm giving away a copy of Rakes and Rogues (or another of my books, winner's choice) to one lucky commenter.
Starling doesn’t let ladylike behavior get in the way of true love.
She’s secretly helping a friend to elope…until she’s tossed into the
waiting coach and driven away by a notorious rake.
REVENGE REALLY DOESN’T PAY.
Warren, Lord Garrison, comes from a family of libertines, and he’s the
worst of them all—or so society believes. When Miles helps a friend to
run off with an heiress, it’s an entertaining way to revenge himself on
one of the gossips who slandered him.
Except that he abducts the wrong woman…and as if that wasn’t scandalous enough, he can’t resist stealing a kiss.
FREE FREE FREE... ENJOY!!
(In case you didn't know, there's a second book in the series, THE RAKE'S IRISH LADY, and the third, LOVE AND THE SHAMELESS LADY, will be out soon...possibly November. Now I have to figure out how to redeem an obnoxious heroine--a secondary character in Love and the Shameless Lady--for Book 4.)
I'm excited -- A Very Wicked Christmas Anthology is now up for pre-order for only 99 cents! My novella, Love at First Dance (or Jane and the Vile Seducer) is included. (It's the sequel to The Reluctant Seductress, which is in the boxed set, Rakes and Rogues. It's the story of Sir Colwyn North, who was a secondary character in The Reluctant Seductress. He needs a Happily Ever After, too!)
Have Yourself A Very Wicked Christmas!
Six of today’s most popular regency romance authors
come together to deliver a holiday anthology full of passion, promise, and
Boyd’sThe Christmas Affair, a
lonely shopkeeper offers shelter to a beautiful, not so innocent miss to
overcome the bitter memories of Christmases past, but could such a wicked
connection ever lead to a happily-ever-after? A dashing spy with marriage on
his mind seeks to rekindle the spark by any means possible with the woman who
claimed his heart in Love at First Danceby Barbara Monajem. A scandalous widow rescues the man of her dreams -
but his secrets could destroy their love in Nicola Davidson'sJoy to the Earl. A masquerade ball was
no place to be reckless with your innocence, and yet one scorching look at the
masked highwayman urges Miss Partridge to do just that in Mistletoe and the Marquessby
Wendy Vella. In Lord Misrule by Donna
Cummings, a young widow chooses a handsome rogue to be her first lover, but
his regrets from a past Christmas may end their affair before it even
commences. A blue-stocking becomes a courtesan to escape a murderer in The Glittering Prize, an intrigue-filled
romance by Beverley Oakley about
finding love where it’s least expected.
This is an all-new collection of
stand-alone complete works.
Here's the blurb for my novella, Love at First Dance: Sir Colwyn North’s uncanny seductive powers made
him an excellent spy—but they also gave him the worst sort of reputation. Given
his dreadful past, his only hope of winning the hand of the very proper
Lady Jane Dew is to trick her into marriage. By way of seduction. While in
Jane has had enough of tedious propriety; she
wants excitement. Duty-bound, she attends a Christmas house party at the
estate of a scheming marquis, who has plans of his own for her. She
intends to choose her own husband, and the son of the marquis is not on her
list. The enthralling but nameless seducer who visits her nightly in her dreams
might be…but first she has to find out who he is.
Will Lady Jane reject Sir Colwyn when she
discovers the truth? Or will he find another devious way to capture her
