Hawthorne Dorning either finds a way to turn his family’s vast botanical resources into a successful commercial venture, or the estate the Dornings have called home for centuries could be broken up. He loves the land and he’s never shied away from hard work, but he knows nothing about creating perfumes or fragrances.
Margaret Summerfield has put aside her passion for scent-making to tend to the serious business of raising her little nieces. She’s no longer the girl who wandered the countryside by the hour, lost in the pleasures of nature, nor does she want to be. Hawthorne needs her help, but what does he have that could possibly tempt Margaret to entangle herself with his dreams?
Somebody is stealing from Wrexham, Duke of Elsmore, but if Polite Society learns that his account books don’t balance, then Rex, his bank, and his whole family are ruined. Fortunately, Mrs. Eleanora Hatfield is a whiz at puzzling out the clues hidden in the ledgers. Unfortunately, she wants nothing to do with any fellow sporting a title, and most especially nothing to do with a duke!
And if that’s not enough…
I’m also planning a fall 2019 novella duet with writin’ buddy Emily Larkin (has cats in it). I might be able to publish another True Gentlemen in fall 2019, depending on whether Ash Dorning and Della Haddonfield let me know what the heck they are doing–or maybe Oak Dorning? For reasons unbeknownst to me, I’ve also started writing a Regency mystery series with a working title of Lady Violet Investigates. I have no idea where that project is going, but I’m having great fun with it!
If you follow me on Bookbub, you’ll get a brief new release announcement as every upcoming title becomes available for pre-order. (Maybe I should follow myself on Bookbub…?)
