Colin MacHugh is trying to come up to scratch as the brother and heir of a newly minted duke, but Polite Society isn’t keen on a former army captain acquiring even a courtesy title. At the suggestion of an aristocratic friend, Colin takes an interest in a charitable home for urchins. Miss Anwen Windham is devoted to the same institution, and as Colin and Anwen work together to save the failing orphanage, their interest in each other becomes passionate.
When the orphanage’s troubles take a criminal turn, everybody is suspect, from Colin, to the children, to Anwen. If Colin blows retreat and heads home to Scotland, the orphanage will surely fail. If he stays to fight the accusations coming at him from all sides, he could lose a future with Anwen–and his life….

Julian, Duke of Haverford, is barely keeping his handsome head above water amid a sea of inherited debts. His sister, Lady Glenys, decides to throw a house party Julian can ill afford in hopes of finding an heiress for him to marry. Julian tries to turn this disaster into opportunity by inviting every well-heeled bachelor in the realm, because Lady Glenys is also in want of a spouse.
Elizabeth Windham is among the guests at the Haverford house party, though her goal is to elude matchmaking from any quarter. Julian and Elizabeth are attracted, however, despite meddling siblings, financial woes, and gossips lurking behind every potted palm. Just as Julian and Elizabeth realize that they can snatch true love from the jaws of duty, Julian’s difficulties become ruinous. Which will it be? True love or true disaster?

Coming in 2017…
The second book in the Trouble Wears Tartan series is already in production, and finds Elias Brodie, Scottish entrepreneur-at-large, passing through Damson Valley, of the Sweetest Kisses series fame. Violet Hughes farms the land across the lane from Elias’s property, and in her, he’s met his match. (He just doesn’t figure that out until, oh, maybe page 217.) Others stories in the queue include another Jaded Gentleman scheduled for late spring that will feature a happily ever after for Hessian Kettering, Lord Grampion (aka Grumpy-pants); a novella quartet in September titled, “How to Find a Duke in Ten Days,” and more novellas as the year comes to a close. (And yes, for those wondering, all four Windham Brides will get their HEAs!)
