Lady Louisa’s Christmas Knight received more encouraging words, this time from Booklist: “Burrowes concocts a fun Regency Christmas romance to add to her sparkling Windham series. Humor, strong…characters, and fresh situations are hallmarks of this award-winning author, and readers will regret that there are only a few remaining Windham siblings. Fans of Amanda Quick and Loretta Chase will enjoy Burrowes.”

The Windham family, fortunately for all concerned, has many friends, though. In April, 2013 we’ll have stories on the shelves for Darius Lindsey, Nicholas Haddonfield, Ethan Grey (Nick’s half brother), and Beckman Haddonfield, ALSO the next enovella for Their Graces, A Duke and His Duchess.

If you’re the kind who organizes your Christmas shopping early, don’t forget that all it takes is a SASE to get some signed book plates from me. Send it to my attention at 21 Summit Avenue, Hagerstown, MD 21740 and let me know to whom I’m to sign them.
