A Regency novella trio with Grace Burrowes, Shana Galen, and Carolyn Jewel.
The various chapters of a priceless medieval manuscript, The Duke’s Book of Knowledge, have been the subject of legend and rumor for centuries. A group of London nobleman have promised their former professor that they’ll find the manuscript before the professor retires, and vindicate his faith in the Duke’s existence while rescuing a great literary work from obscurity. Each man becomes entangled with a lady in the course of his quest, and the objective shifts, from locating an ancient manuscript to also winning the lady’s heart—in just ten short days.
Widower Axel Belmont, like his brother Matthew, occasionally takes a turn serving as magistrate in his small corner of Oxfordshire. When the owner of a neighboring estate is murdered, Axel initially suspects Abigail Stoneleigh, the grieving widow, but then she too, appears to be in harm’s way.
Abby accepts Axel’s hospitality lest he take her into formal custody as a suspect, but it’s her heart Axel captures. He’s a conscientious and loving father, a devoted brother, and an astute magistrate, but will he solve the murder mystery before the villain strikes again?

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?

I’m also working on more True Gentlemen, (the “Beowulf Book” comes out in June 2018) and yes, I know, Grey, Oak, and Hawthorne Dorning also need stories.
