Snippet from An Inadvisable Wager

I just posted this on my author page on Facebook and decided I should share it here too! I am loving everything about this work and can't wait to share it. Right now this will be released early 2021.

Here's a snippet from An Inadvisable Wager:

"Three more people pushed into the library while Lady Weatherby was huffing about the absolute scandal of it! Nora let her tears flow, one of those gifts given to women to use against men. Carlow had removed his person from hers, allowing her to sit up, bat her lashes and then press her hand to her brow.

Then Timothy strolled in.

Nora was just about out of tears—and ready for her brother to scream holy hell about Carlow ruining—ruining—his sister.

“And who are you?” Carlow demanded.

“I am Nora’s brother, Timothy Blasington. Earl of Henbury. And I don’t need an introduction to a scoundrel like you, Carlow. Isn’t it just like your family to take advantage of the defenseless,” he said, speaking with authority and anger. “Nora, come stand beside me and away from him.”

“You’re Henbury? And you’re Nora Blasington?” Carlow asked, his brows reaching the ceiling while his gaze shot daggers at her.

“This is unspeakable,” Reverend Wright, sputtered. “I will see the Archbishop of Canterbury this evening and demand a special license and you, sir, will attend with me.”

“It’s already morning,” Carlow said sarcastically. Nora glanced at the mantel clock to see it was just a little after two.

“He’s not going anywhere,” Timothy demanded. “There are agreements to be reached and until I hear it from his own lips, he’s not leaving this room.”

“And what is it you want me to say?” Carlow asked, feigning innocence.

“By God, you will apologize first. Second, you will get on your knees and beg for my sister’s hand.”   

“Or what? Carlow asked.

What am I working on now?

The last few months have been a challenge for us all, but I'm happy to say that my two contemporaries are done! I've just finished final edits for Pinnacle, which releases on September 15th. Just a reminder to pre-order because it is on sale until release day!

For the next twelve months, I have an ambitious goal. I'm working on four Regency novels. Gulp! Can I do it? I'm pretty sure because the stories are all about half finished.

So what are they?

I'm going to do two more in the Wicked Affairs series currently titled Wicked Ember and Wicked Shades. The protags have been mentioned in other books but I will surprise you with a later post (I've mentioned them before so if you're REALLY curious, you could probably find out.)

The other two are books in existing series. One in the Infamous Forresters and the other in The Curse of the Weatherby Ball. So this is a little surprise for you. I've had theses covers done for a while. Now, I have to say that for me, writing a certain novel is about working on the one that "takes" you in the moment. So, even though the covers are done for these novels, other books took me first.

Aren't these just beautiful covers? Dar Albert delivers again! I am especially in love with An Inadvisable Wager cover. I think it is my second favorite cover ever!!!! I'm right in the middle of writing a fantastic card game scene for this novel. Of course, they are at the Weatherby Ball so who knows what might happen.

As for A Wife Is Forever, I'm not sure that will be the final title, but I'll keep you posted.

So what do you think of my Regency surprises for the day?

Did I tell you about...

Some of you know I have a 'thing' for David Gandy, one of the world's most famous male supermodels. He is my favorite celebrity and has been for several years. Even Sam Heughan can't beat him. Like everyone else, one of the first interactions with David was the famous white trunks photo from 2006, an ad campaign for Dolce and Gabbana's Light Blue fragrance. After seeing that and asking who the bloke was, I hunted him down.

Later, David was doing a charity auction on Ebay and one of the items to bid on was a dinner with him, which I won. Well, I can only say that after that meal, I was completely hooked. He was so genuine and now he can do no wrong in my eyes! He's no longer on the runway but he still has a lot of campaigns, business ventures and other projects that interest me, and I keep following!

So, at some point after 2012, I had it in my mind to write a story about a supermodel. PEAK and PINNACLE are the result of that lingering idea. The model in my story Peak is not David or any depiction of him other than as a model - it was just a fun arc to build a hero around. The good news is that my stories are about TWINS - twice the hotness!

This is my photo of David from our meal together. Yes! It's very clear why I'd want to 'model' a hero after this man!

Hopefully, you've had a chance to read Peak! Don't forget to pre-order Pinnacle, as it is on sale for .99 cents until release day! And don't forget to leave a comment to be eligible for the giveaway of an Everest North Face hoodie
