Rosalyn Landor voices RbR audible book

by on May.21, 2012, under Author news

Not only did Ruined by Rumor come out today (brief pause while I do a happy dance), but I just learned this morning that the audible version is read by actress Rosalyn Landor. She’s a brilliant narrator who has voiced books by Lisa Kleypas, Julia Quinn, Mary Balogh, Sophie Kinsella, P.D. James and a host of other bestselling authors.

I’m practically giddy.

The audible version of Ruined by Rumor is available for purchase here.

Release day!

by on May.21, 2012, under Author news

At long last (many of you already know the saga of my first manuscript, A Tryst With Trouble, and how the publisher folded before releasing it) I have a book out! My marriage of convenience regency, Ruined by Rumor, debuts today. Click here to order or learn more.

After waiting five years for her fiancé to return from the war and marry her, Roxana Langley has been jilted! She may have longed for excitement, but this was not what she had in mind…

Who could possibly throw over a woman as beautiful and vivacious as Roxana? Certainly not Alex Winslow, the Earl of Ayersley, who has spent years trying in vain to forget his unrequited love. When he learns she’s been abandoned by her cad of a fiancé, he finds himself offering a shoulder for her to cry on. Comfort soon turns into a passionate kiss—and scandal when they are caught in an embrace.

Only one thing will save Roxana from certain ruination: marriage to the earl. The match may save her reputation, but responsible, tongue-tied Ayersley is a far cry from her dashing former fiancé. She’s convinced Ayersley is merely doing his duty…while he’s sure Roxana is still in love with another man. Are they trading one disaster for another?

You can read an excerpt here. And if you’re curious to see some of my story inspirations, I hope you’ll visit my Ruined by Rumor Pinterest board by clicking here.

Heroes and Heartbreakers review

by on May.16, 2012, under Reviews

Author Victoria Janssen (Moonlight Mistress, The Duke and the Pirate Queen) gave Ruined by Rumor a lovely review at the Heroes and Heartbreakers blog. “Everett’s lighthearted dialogue was again a feature, as was the old-school Regency romance plot, but what I really loved was her hero.” Click here to read the full review.

Thanks, Victoria and Heroes and Heartbreakers!

Why I love librarians

by on May.03, 2012, under Reviews

Just when I badly needed something to turn my day around [insert woeful personal tale of incontinent spaniel recovering from liver surgery], LibraryJournal gave Ruined by Rumor a review that did it: “…an ideal read for historical and Regency romance lovers. Wonderfully human characters, appropriate dialog, and thorough world-building mark Everett as an author to keep on a list of must-reads.” Did I mention that I love librarians? In this case, the reviewer is even from my neck of the woods.

Click here to read the full review (it’s the second book down).

Two pieces of news to share.

First, I have a projected release date now for my second regency, Ruined by Rumor, the marriage of convenience story Carina Press plans to publish. It should go on sale May 21, 2012.

Second, I’m blogging today at Romancing the Past about a case of star crossed love in the regency, featuring William Makepeace Thackeray’s ruthlessly manipulative grandmother.
