Tillie & Alexander, coming soon!

Many of you have told me you are eagerly looking forward to the story of Tillie and Alexander, who you met in The Duke She Wished For. The wait is nearly over. I have some exciting news for you! Someday Her Duke Will Come, the second book in my Happily Ever After series, will be available in just two weeks! 

This is a standalone novel, however if you have not yet read the Duke She Wished For, now is the time to get your first look at these two. Links to the book on Amazon are below!

I hope you are also enjoying Quest of Honor! If you haven't read it and enjoy a strong female lead, check it out.

I'd like to take a moment to tell you that my heart goes out to everyone who has been affected by the hurricanes in the United States, or by any other disaster -- natural or otherwise -- worldwide. I would like to thank Girl With Pen and Magic of Books Promotions for organizing a Silent Auction to help support The Houston Flood Relief Fund. Check out the Facebook event to bid on silent auction items, including a signed copy of The Duke She Wished For. It has been extended to September 30th. Thank you to everyone who has provided their time and resources in helping others through these difficult times.

Lastly, I was very interested in the results of the survey last week! It should probably not come as a surprise that there are quite varied interests in how much steam you like, just as there are many different interests in genres or historical eras. About 12% of you like your books completely clean; 40% like quite a bit of spice; and the remainder of you are somewhere in the middle. 

I hope everyone has a wonderful week! As always, please check out reading suggestions and giveaways available below. 

With love,

Scandalous Redemption

(Ladies and Scoundrels Book 3)

By Amanda Mariel

She never wanted him…

Ruined by scandal, Claudia Akford survived years of marriage to a cruel brute. Widowed, she is determined to regain her standing in society, but Lord Shillington personifies temptation. Kind and gentle, yet masculine and sinfully handsome, he would make the perfect lover, but he wants more than she is willing to give.

He needed her…

While Henry Shillington knows a little of the beautiful but notorious Lady Claudia Akford, he is struck by her kindhearted, accomplished, and witty demeanor. The more time he spends in her company, the more he dreams of a future with her. But the lady resists his honorable overtures, and a mistress will never do for him.

Can two wary people overcome past hurts, an old scandal, and social strictures to embrace true love?

Held by a Highlander

By Fiona McKellar

Her wild highlander captor is no fool. An English lady as a prisoner can certainly be used in many ways to help satisfy his thirst for revenge against the English.

When an English Lady, Georgina Bannerman, is kidnapped by Scottish Reivers, she finds the barbaric men loathsome. While doing her best to make life difficult for the leader of her brutish guard, Alasdair McGregor, she soon discovers a softness in his eyes she didn’t know existed among such uncivilized men.

Alasdair has his own plans though, and after taking his revenge on Sir Henry Drake through a ruthless ploy that uses Georgina as bait, the once cloistered English lady finds herself a prisoner in what used to be her betrothed’s castle.

When Sir Drake escapes, it’s hard to know who he'd like to take revenge on more, the Scottish Laird who stole his castle or his traitor bride.

If only she knew that her captor wanted her for more than just his thirst for revenge.
