Maxwell Maitland is willing to travel to Scotland if that’s where the next big development project takes him, but when he gets to the site, nothing goes according to plan. Single mom Jeannie Brodie is on hand to smooth out problems with the locals, but she creates utter chaos in Max’s highly organized, schedule-driven heart.
Grey Dorning, Earl of Casriel, must marry well and soon. He has five unmarried brothers whom he should assist to get a start in life, any number of tenant cottages threatening to fall apart, and he’s running out of time to set the earldom to rights. He needs an agreeable heiress looking for a title, a lady who will be content to marry a man more renowned for his manners than his fortune.
Beatitude, Countess of Canmore, wants a friendly, harmless liaison with a charming man who won’t fetter her freedom. She’s not wealthy, but she has earned her independence, and intends to keep it. Casriel knows what he needs, Addy knows she wants, so why can’t they stop thinking about each other?
One minute, London banker Quinn Wentworth is facing execution. The next, he’s declared the long-lost heir a dukedom. Quinn has fought his way up from the vilest slums, and now he’s ready to use every dirty trick he knows to find the enemy who connived against him.
Jane Winston, the widowed, pregnant daughter of a meddlesome prison preacher, crosses paths with Quinn in jail. Believing his days are numbered, Quinn offers Jane marriage as a way to guarantee her independence and to provide for her child. Neither thinks they’ll actually have a future together.
He’s a wealthy gutter rat out for vengeance. She’s a minister’s daughter who must turn a marriage of desperation into a proper ducal union. Are they doomed from the start or destined for a happily-ever-after?
And if that’s not enough…
What a busy writer-gal am I! I’m particularly looking forward to the back-to-back releases of Scotland to the Max and A Truly Perfect Gentleman. I should also have a contemporary novella, The Cowboy Wore a Kilt, available in the store by mid-September as a free download. That tale began life as a Kindle Worlds title, and the rights were recently returned to me. Readers were very understanding of some mishaps with the launch of My Own True Duchess, and I think a freebie kilted cowboy would be fun way to say thanks.
If you follow me on Bookbub, you’ll get a brief new release announcement as every upcoming title becomes available. For example, there’s a Dukes by the Dozen anthology scheduled for publication in early 2019… details to follow!
