It’s release day for A Tryst With Trouble!
Lady Barbara Jeffords is certain her little sister didn’t murder the footman, no matter how it looks…and no matter what the Marquess of Beningbrough–Ben–might say. She can scarcely help it if his cousin is the only other suspect. In fact, she wants nothing to do with ruggedly handsome Ben; he reminds her of all the insensitive clods who passed her over.
For years Ben has been dogged by painful gossip about his father’s rumored homosexuality. His gruff shell hides a passionate nature, and he’s also fiercely loyal—which is why he’ll never let the clever and beguiling Lady Barbara pin a murder on his cousin.
Sparks fly as the two compete to defend their loved ones. But as strange new clues emerge that neither can decipher alone, they have no choice but to compare notes and sleuth in tandem. A tenuous bond develops that soon faces its toughest challenge when Ben himself becomes a suspect…
A Tryst With Trouble received a 4-star review from Romantic Times Book Reviews, which called Ben and Barbara “a surprising couple who will entertain with their Nick and Nora-esque antics.”

One of the most exciting parts of bringing out a new book is seeing the cover art for the first time. Now the characters that have so far been only in my head have faces and bodies (very nice bodies, in most cases!). Here’s the new cover image for my September 23 release, A Tryst With Trouble.
Isn’t it gorgeous? The redhead is Lady Barbara Jeffords, and the very attentive gentleman behind her is Ben, short for the Marquess of Beningbrough. It’s a fun book and I hope you’ll enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it!
