Watch out what you wish for…
Grace teams up with Vanessa Riley and Kelly Bowen to bring you three Regency happily ever afters. For three couples, an anonymous letter brings with it a gift of wealth, and a promise of dreams coming true, if each pair can learn not only to work together, but also to see differences as strengths.
Duncan Wentworth tried his hand at rescuing a damsel in distress once long ago, and he’s vowed he’ll never make that mistake again. Nonetheless, when he comes across Matilda Wakefield in the poacher-infested and far-from-enchanted woods of his estate, decency compels him to offer aid to a lady fallen on hard times. Matilda is whip-smart, she can read Duncan’s horrible penmanship, and when she wears his reading glasses, all Duncan can think about is naughty Latin poetry.
Matilda cannot entrust her secrets to Duncan without embroiling him in the problems that sent her fleeing from London, but neither can she ignore a man who’s honorable, a brilliant chess player, and maddeningly kissable. She needs to stay one step ahead of the enemies pursuing her, though she longs to fall into Duncan’s arms. Duncan swears he has traded in his shining armor for a country gentleman’s muddy boots, but to win the fair maid, he’ll have to ride into battle one more time.
What’s better than a dashing duke? A dozen of them! In this case, a baker’s dozen. I’ve teamed up with twelve other historical romance authors to put together a year’s worth of never-before-released novellas and short stories. Each author took a different month, but every story delivers a happily ever after!
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 to Margaret to entangle herself with his dreams?
And if that’s not enough…
Theresa Romain and I will issue a June novella duet (another duke alert!), and 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? A third Rogues to Riches is already scheduled for November 2019, wherein the prim and proper Mrs. Hatfield of bank auditor fame crosses paths with a certain duke in financial difficulties, which of course adds up to true love!
