The first in a new series is ready for release. It's being formatted as I type! I had this idea ages ago, probably when I first started writing. The series? The Curse of the Weatherby Ball. As you can guess from the title, bad things be happening!
Each story will be about an event that happens at this ball at the unintended, outrageous consequences.
In An Occasion To Sin, a very good woman does a very bad thing. Victoria Sloane makes a bad decision at the Weatherby Ball and must endure the fallout for months to come.
Here's the blurb:
On the night of the Weatherby Ball, a bad decision results in a passionate, anonymous encounter for Victoria Sloane. The ball has a reputation for being cursed. Had she stumbled into the trap? Within days, her secret rendezvous is exposed, her husband is dead and she is carrying the child of an unknown suitor.
Joseph Smythe-Wellesley is left to clean up the messy affairs of the Earl of Doncaster. He has put the night of strange, illicit passion behind him. He would never see the lovely creature again—whoever she was. The earl’s wife is difficult to understand and she is determined to protect the heritage of her unborn child. A child she claims is the next earl. Joseph has his doubts. He is also attracted to the strong willed and strangely vulnerable Victoria.
Some might say the death of her husband was a blessing not a curse, but that event is the least of her problems especially once she realizes she shares a secret with the honorable and determined solicitor.
Coming in January, I'll have another release titled The Trouble With Scots. This is the third in the Body of Knowledge series. I depart from the traditional historical by inserting some proto-science: time travel, mind reading, voodoo. You get the idea.
Well, Lord Dunbar has visions of the future and for the last ten years she has appeared to him in various visions - the woman who is to be his wife, the woman with no name. Oh, I love this story.
Don't forget Wanton Christmas Wishes is still on sale for .99 cents. Readers seem to be enjoying this anthology, chock full of hot and sexy.
