April Update: Hunt Club, Distinguished Rogues and more

April Update: Hunt Club, Distinguished Rogues and more

Happy April regency romance fans,

I’m so glad to see the back of March and hopefully an end to this crazy hot Summer. Heat and humidity are not really my friend. However, thanks to getting an Air Conditioning unit for my office, I’ve managed to write a fair few words since New Year’s Day. I’m really pleased to promise I’ve got a number of new stories in the pipeline for release in the latter part of the year, including a super secret one. More on that one later.

New Hunt Club

First book announcement is awesome. I just finished writing the Hunt Club’s sixth story last week! I’m both elated and sad about finishing up that series, but I do know from the number of fan emails that so many are waiting for this one last important story. No spoilers today, but I have booked the edit for Once a Husband for June. Depending on the feedback I get from my fearless editor, I expect to announce the release date here in July. Keep an eye on the coming soon page as well.

Distinguished Rogues Milestone

Coming up in May is the 6th Anniversary of publishing Chills, book 1 of the popular Distinguished Rogues series. To mark the special occasion I’m sprucing up the whole series — new covers and formatting for every book (including print) and an update on the first three early stories to bring them up to date with my current writing style. I’ll be showing off the new look books May 1st and updating all the booksellers during the following week(s). If you’ve read some of the books in Kindle format and do not have automatic updates turned on you might want to do that this month so you get them as soon as they become available.

Book Bargain

The price of Miss Watson’s First Scandal has dropped to 99c for April and beyond. You can read more about Miss Watson and her friends  (Miss George’s Second Chance, Miss Radley’s Third Dare & Miss Merton’s Last Hope) on the website.

April Update

 

Don’t forget too, new release announcement happen here on the blog and via the newsletter. Be sure to sign up and stay informed.

Until next time.

Cheers and happy reading!

Year Without Rickman #MFRWAuthor

Year without Rickman

I’m back for the MFRW 52 week blogging challenge! Each week I will write a post from a set list of topics that with luck will a) get me blogging more often and b) help you get to know me better.

This week’s theme is: Shows I binge

What a difference a year makes. People leave a mark. Characters touch you and sometimes never leave. That’s what actor Alan Rickman did for me. He was a great actor and as we’ve just passed the first anniversary of his death I’m finding comfort in what he’s left behind.

I’ve just started another run through his body of work to mark this first anniversary of his death. I first fell for him in Truly, Madly, Deeply. Laughed at him as the Sherrif of Nottingham eating hearts out with a spoon, and loved him always as Professor Severus Snape. Of course, there are so many other roles to love. The legacy he’s left behind his impressive and yet I still wish for more like this:

I feel that way about TV shows too. I have about ten that I binge watch one after another. Here are my favorite three:

–NCIS – I loved that show but once Ziva was written out I just couldn’t continue watching new episodes. I only rewatch from Season 3 to her exit.

–I’m also strangely fascinated by The Fall. It’s a gritty series about a serial killer. The villain is not a nice man and yet I cannot look away. His adversary Stella Gibson, a police detective, is an odd one, extremely good at her job but also a bit of a siren to men. Gillian Anderson is amazing to watch as Stella. Jamie Dornan is utterly creepy in a good looking sort of way.

–Sherlock. I’ve probably banged on about my love of the BBC series many times before. Season 3 has just aired and while I didn’t realize it at the time I was apparently so caught up in it I was shouting at the TV. Sadly it’s supposed to be the last season for years aired, if they ever do another.

Thank heavens for DVD’s or Netflix and Stan for endless reruns.

New Release: Fool for Love

Its book release day. Yay!!! It’s also my birthday. *sad face* Getting older isn’t really a yay anymore, but with a book release its a great distraction.

Fool for Love

Beverley Oakley and Donna Cummings are helping me celebrate my forty-mumbles birthday this year with these three outstanding new stories for readers to escape to.

Wicked Rogues. Handsome Aristocrats. Destined for love, one and all! 

In His Valentine’s Secret, by Beverley Oakley, Lady Athelton’s St Valentine’s Ball should have been a time for love, not vengeance, as the once carefree Lisette plots the demise of the man she once loved. Will she learn the truth in time?

In Truly, My Love, by Donna Cummings, Lord Benedict and Lady Sommerwood stage a faux romance in order to help him evade two besotted young misses at a Valentine party. But can an affair built on falsehoods possibly turn into true love?

And in A Husband for Mary, by me, Miss Mary Vine kissed a handsome stranger at the Fenwick Masquerade, never imagining the extraordinary attraction could be for the most disgraceful rake in London. A man she knew far too well…

The Fool for Love collection is winging its way toward your ereader now but you can read an excerpt from A HUSBAND FOR MARY on my website. A print edition will be available very soon on Amazon.

Get your copy here:
Amazon | iBooks | Kobo | Barnes & Noble

Happy reading and lets all have cake today!
