Reviewers, do you enjoy a bit of banter in your regencies? A little mystery, perhaps? A TRYST WITH TROUBLE is now available for preview on Netgalley.
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!
What happened when Matthew “Monk” Lewis’s mother ran off with a music master? Today I’m at Romancing the Past, looking at a Georgian marriage gone bad.

I just learned yesterday that Ruined by Rumor has been translated into an Italian edition, called Scandali e Altri Rimedi (Scandals and Other Remedies*). One of the tags is “matrimonio riparatore,” which is apparently Italian for “shotgun wedding.”
Click here to see the Italian edition. I love the cover!
*P.S. – I recently learned that a better English translation might be “Scandals and Other Drugs.” Apologies to my Italian friends for knowing so little about their very musical language.
Today I’m at Romancing the Past, blogging about why 19th century portraits often depict young boys in dresses, and how you can tell the boys from the girls.
There’s a new review of LORD OF SECRETS up today. Kate of Reading Under the Willow Tree calls the story “a lovely romance…with real emotional impact and relatable characters.”
