What a nice way to start off 2015. Two different reviewers at Romantic Historical Reviews, Jill and Lady Wesley, both picked An Heir of Uncertainty as one of their favorite books of 2014. You can read their entire favorites list here: Favorite Books of 2014.
I also have an official title for my next regency: The Marriage Act.
When John, Viscount Welford, proposed at the age of twenty-six to the only daughter of the Bishop of Essex, he thought he knew exactly what he was getting—a lovely and warm-hearted bride, young and innocent but hardly a case of robbing the cradle. He had two excellent reasons to rush the wedding: the diplomatic post awaiting him in Vienna, and his own eagerness to marry the young lady of his dreams.
He never imagined that on their wedding night, his new bride would leave him for another man.
Caro Fleetwood had no thought of going through with the wedding when she accepted Lord Welford’s proposal. She simply wanted to make a certain dashing militia officer wish he’d asked her instead. Lord Welford was too old for her, and she scarcely knew him. But before she could muster the courage to confess her misguided impulse to her father, she was already walking down the aisle. Married to a near-stranger she didn’t love, what choice did she have except to run away once her new husband fell asleep? If only the furious and humiliated Lord Welford hadn’t caught up to her before she could reach her militia officer…
It should be out sometime in the second half of 2015. I’ll post more when I have a firm release date.
Happy New Year!
Two quick pieces of news.

Goodreads has determined the winners of my Ruined by Rumor giveaway. There were 881 entries and ten winners– eight in the United States, one in Canada, and one in the United Kingdom. Prizes went out in the mail on September 2, so if you were one of the lucky winners, watch your mailbox for your copy.
I found out today that the narrator has been cast for An Heir of Uncertainty. She’s an actress named Rebecca Courtney, and she’s not only performed a wide variety of voiceover work, but also appeared on the stage and screen.
I’ll post a release date as soon as I have one.
Now comes the hard part–I have to finish the manuscript.
I’ll post more when I have information on the release date.
Ruined by Rumor was recently released in paperback, and that means I can now offer it on Goodreads as part of their Giveaway program. The giveaway starts at midnight on Wednesday, July 30, and runs until midnight on Sunday, August 31. Just use the button below to enter.
I’ll be heading tomorrow to the Romance Writers of America conference in San Antonio, Texas. Before I go, though, I have a couple pieces of news.
First–and this is always fun for me–I just learned that A Tryst With Trouble now has an Italian translation: UN MARCHESE SOTTO ACCUSA (A Marquess in Charge). That’s the cover image to the left, and you can learn more (if you’re so inclined) by clicking here.
Second, I just learned this morning that the audiobook version of An Heir of Uncertainty has gone into production. I still don’t have a release date or know the identity of the narrator, but I’ll post more when I do.
