- All of what's Coming up:
- Miss Delightful
- A Rogue in Winter — A Rogues to Riches Holiday Novella
Miss Dorcas Delancey, vicar’s daughter and advocate for the less fortunate, has been guarding her heart from fortune hunters and fashionable fribbles for years. She’s completely unprepared for Alasdhair MacKay, former officer and all around grouch, to steal that heart. But when Alasdhair takes on responsibility for a motherless infant whom Dorcas’s family won’t acknowledge, she sees the honor lurking beneath his gruff mannerisms.
Alasdhair MacKay did not storm hell with Wellington’s army just so he could drink, swive, and flirt his way through life after Waterloo. He’s serious, intelligent, and passionate about his causes–also passionate in his regard for Dorcas. He’s the man of her dreams and a paragon in plaid, but looming scandal means Dorcas will have to choose between love and the honor Alasdhair so relentlessly values.
Vicar Pietr Sorenson is preparing to endure–enjoy, rather–another solitary, frigid holiday season at the edge of the Yorkshire moors, when Miss Joy Danforth‘s coach lurches to a halt across the village green. Joy and her brother have nowhere to wait out the impending bout of nasty weather, while the vicarage is even emptier than usual.
The lady is on her way to charm a titled nitwit into offering her marriage, lest her family face financial ruin. Pietr has accepted a prestigious post closer to civilization, though he hasn’t quite found a way to tell his congregation he’s leaving early in the New Year. Will Pietr and Joy steal some holiday comfort beneath the mistletoe, or find the love of a lifetime on a bleak mid-winter night?
And if that’s not enough…
Also in the work-in-progress category, we have Never a Duke, a story for Ned Wentworth, that will be book seven in the Rogues to Riches series. Look for a release date in early 2022.
In the past year, publication rights to the entire Lonely Lords series have reverted to me, and significant effort has gone into re-covering and buffing those stories. They are now all available on the web store (and the major retailers) so don’t be lonely for the Lonely’s!
For reasons unbeknownst to me, I’ve 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’ve finished book five, Lady Violet Finds a Baby. Books one through five are all off in Madam Copy Editor’s capable hands, and book six is germinating. The soonest I can see publishing these stories is Fall 2021. Too many Rogues, too much Mischief, and pretty soon it’s time to start the stories for Noah Winters’s siblings from The Duke’s Disaster!
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…?)
