Embracing the Scandal is a novella is the Perilous Secrets series. It takes place shortly before The Infidelity Curse and introduces several characters that appear in that novel: Giles Morecambe, the future Earl of Netherbroke, his sister Frances Templestone, and her daughter Julia, as well as her son, Lord Templestone, and her future business partner, Marie-Louise Blois.

In the interest of full disclosure, there are a few ghosts in this story (as in several of my novellas), this time playing a minor role. More or less. One of said ghosts also shows up, or so it seems to Frances (for who can say what is real and what isn't?) at the very end of The Infidelity Curse.

So I'm writing Frances' story now. She needs a happy ending.

Embracing the Scandal was originally published last year in an anthology, Christmas Kisses. Now it's out on its own!
