Lovely to meet you ~ Lady Olivia Jackson

Last week we met Alastair’s inspiration from my upcoming book, and today we meet the inspiration for our heroine, Lady Olivia Jackson -- none other than the beautiful Scarlett Johanssen. For those of you who met Olivia in Once Upon a Duke’s Dream, what do you think? Did you picture her like this?

Besides writing, as always, this week I have been busy planning the outline for my next novel (in the Searching Hearts series), spending time with my son, and focused on my health and wellness goals!

This week, I would also love to know -- what social media platforms do you prefer? Answer by clicking the buttons below! I'll share the results with you next week.

I will be answering a reader question each week, so be sure to ask me through email or on my facebook page!

With love,

When a tragic accident heaves Kit into a role he never wanted or expected, his world collides with another type of duty. Returning to England and his newfound responsibilities, the Wicked Earls’ Club becomes a refuge from the glitter and malice of London society but cannot ease his emptiness.
Needing an escape from his late brother’s memory and reputation, Kit visits the family estate for the summer. Lady Grace, a beauty visiting from a neighboring estate, becomes a welcome distraction.
