Another Lover new cover/Birds of Paradise

I may not be getting new work published but I am catching up on getting all of my "rights reversion" books re-published.

So, Another Lover. One of my favorite books. This is one of the only books where I knew the ending lines before I ever started writing the novella. But even though I'm a punster, I don't let my characters meander.

The series, Birds of Paradise, is all about women in unique circumstances in which they take lovers. The stories are also tied, in a way.

Another Lover is about Isabelle St. Hillaire, the Westminster Whore, and the final book will be about her brother, Christian St. Hillaire, captain of a sea-going vessel owned by Isabelle's new husband. This final book is started but not yet titled.

Book two, one of my bestselling books, is The Darkness in the Marquess of Dane. Dane was the dark character in book one who wanted to purchase Isabelle's favors. In DMD, we find out why he is such a troubled, dark soul. His lover, Christine Turnbow, needs money and she sells herself to Dane to save her family. Only she saves Dane's soul instead.

Christine's brother, the earl of Compton, Mark Turnbow, is featured in book three, currently titled a Mistress to Remember. He takes a lover after his wife dies with no thought to marriage. I'm on the last chapter of this book and will have a blurb out on this shortly.

Two families, four love stories. All of the books are very sexual, so I've warned you.

About the Another Lover covers: The lovely Dar Albert did both of these. I loved the first one, but man, oh man, did Dar outdo herself on the second one. Tell me which one you like better.

Here's the new one. Just fabulous, I think
And the original...

Another Lover will be re-published this week! Hope you'll pickup your digital copy and fine retailers near you...

My Dear Lord Forrester

Hi all. I'm calling it a release day for My Dear Lord Forrester even though this novella was in the Seven Nights of Sin anthology. We just wrapped the anthology up a couple months ago and it took me a little time to get the cover done and to do another round of edits. Always edits. No matter how many eyes look at it, there is something that can be made better.

So here's the new cover.

Some of you may have seen my FB post about my "smiling" hero. I liked it but he just seemed too happy. So went with another model instead, though I must confess, he's still not quite right. The curse of getting to do you own covers, I guess.

A big shout to Dar Albert who puts up with me changing my mind from day to day!

Here's a blurb:

Joshua Forrester is a man of the world, returning to London after receiving a wound in a Parisian duel. He's done it again - out to save all womankind. When will he learn not all women want to be saved? In London, he is reacquainted with a family friend and now widow, Char Dunlevee. He is charmed - and appalled. He knows her secret and is furious his friend, Char’s now dead husband, could have left her in such circumstances. He can save her, if she will only say yes to his proposal.

Char has other plans. Joshua would make a perfect husband—for one of her sisters. She doesn’t need to be saved. Seduced perhaps…? With one kiss, Char forgets her plans as she is drawn closer to the enigmatic and dear Lord Forrester.

Previously published in the Seven Nights of Sin anthology.

A new logo

Someday I'll have a marketing/PR person to help me with the minutia of writing. So much to do, so little time.

But this week, Dar Albert (my cover designer) finished up a new logo for "Eliza Lloyd" - and I really like it. You might be seeing it around from here out. What do you think?
