A Tryst With Trouble

My debut regency, A Tryst With Trouble, is slated for release by Dorchester publishing in January, 2012.

Throw the wrong man and woman together, and even basic civility may be too much to ask…

Dogged for years by painful gossip about his father’s homosexuality, the Marquess of Beningbrough—Ben, to his friends—has protected himself by becoming the ultimate man’s man.  Passed over by suitor after suitor in favor of her pretty but vapid younger sister, clever, forthright Lady Barbara Jeffords has reached the disappointing conclusion most men are shallow, boorish clods.  When a philandering footman turns up dead, the two square off:  he’s sure she’s determined to pin the crime on his hapless young cousin, while she thinks he means to shift the blame to her sister.  To find the real killer, Ben and Barbara must declare a truce that threatens to expose both their buried insecurities and their growing desire for each other.
