Another Italian translation

by on Feb.01, 2017, under Author news, Bookshelf

My newest Italian translation. The couple is a good match for John and Caroline.

I love it when my publisher sends me a surprise in the mail. Today I learned I have a new Italian translation, L’errore di Caroline. It’s an Italian version of The Marriage Act. As in the case of An Heir of Uncertainty, the title pun must not work in Italian.

New cover and release date

by on Mar.20, 2015, under Author news, Bookshelf

Cover art for The Marriage Act.

John and Caro, the married-but-estranged hero and heroine of The Marriage Act.

I returned home from a short trip to discover a nice surprise in my inbox: the cover art for The Marriage Act. I love the expression on the heroine’s face. Is she nervous, excited, or merely wondering if she can turn the situation to her advantage? If you can’t tell, then you’re in the same boat as the hero.

And I have an official release date for The Marriage Act. It should be available on July 27.

Best of 2014, New Book News

by on Jan.02, 2015, under Author news, Bookshelf, Reviews

What a nice way to start off 2015. Two different reviewers at Romantic Historical Reviews, Jill and Lady Wesley, both picked An Heir of Uncertainty as one of their favorite books of 2014.

I also have an official title for my next regency: The Marriage Act.

When John, Viscount Welford, proposed at the age of twenty-six to the only daughter of the Bishop of Essex, he thought he knew exactly what he was getting—a lovely and warm-hearted bride, young and innocent but hardly a case of robbing the cradle. He had two excellent reasons to rush the wedding: the diplomatic post awaiting him in Vienna, and his own eagerness to marry the young lady of his dreams.

He never imagined that on their wedding night, his new bride would leave him for another man.


Caro Fleetwood had no thought of going through with the wedding when she accepted Lord Welford’s proposal. She simply wanted to make a certain dashing militia officer wish he’d asked her instead. Lord Welford was too old for her, and she scarcely knew him. But before she could muster the courage to confess her misguided impulse to her father, she was already walking down the aisle. Married to a near-stranger she didn’t love, what choice did she have except to run away once her new husband fell asleep? If only the furious and humiliated Lord Welford hadn’t caught up to her before she could reach her militia officer…

It should be out sometime in the second half of 2015. I’ll post more when I have a firm release date.

Happy New Year!

A Tryst With Trouble is out!

by on Sep.23, 2013, under Author news, Bookshelf

It’s release day for A Tryst With Trouble!

A Tryst With Trouble cover

London, 1820

Lady Barbara Jeffords is certain her little sister didn’t murder the footman, no matter how it looks…and no matter what the Marquess of Beningbrough–Ben–might say. She can scarcely help it if his cousin is the only other suspect. In fact, she wants nothing to do with ruggedly handsome Ben; he reminds her of all the insensitive clods who passed her over.

For years Ben has been dogged by painful gossip about his father’s rumored homosexuality. His gruff shell hides a passionate nature, and he’s also fiercely loyal—which is why he’ll never let the clever and beguiling Lady Barbara pin a murder on his cousin.

Sparks fly as the two compete to defend their loved ones. But as strange new clues emerge that neither can decipher alone, they have no choice but to compare notes and sleuth in tandem. A tenuous bond develops that soon faces its toughest challenge when Ben himself becomes a suspect…

A Tryst With Trouble received a 4-star review from Romantic Times Book Reviews, which called Ben and Barbara “a surprising couple who will entertain with their Nick and Nora-esque antics.”

A Tryst With Trouble is available as an e-book at Carina Press and all major e-book retailers. It’s also available as an audiobook narrated by Lizzie Owensby. To order or learn more, click here.
