The Seduction of the Duke
(Book 2 in the Chamber’s Trilogy)

The only way to avoid scandal and ruin is to marry money. He heads to Newport Beach, Rhode Island, where rich Americans maintain summer cottages, to marry—sight unseen—a reclusive American heiress nicknamed Frosty Franny.
Francesca Winthrop is determined to marry for love, but her nouveau riche, social climbing mother wants a noble title in the family to advance her own standing.

Where did 2017 go?

Here it is December and I’m wondering where the year went?  For me it’s meant lots of travel, a new grandson to cuddle, three new releases, meeting new readers everywhere, and the new experience of a NINC conference (grin).  It’s been a great year.  I’ve been blessed.


What’s coming in 2018?

The calendar is pretty blank right now but I know I’ll be in Houston, TX in March for an RWA board meeting, and then in Denver, CO in July for the RWA conference.  I’m planning to go to NINC again in October (St. Petersburg, FL), and I imagine my husband is plotting for us to go on another adventure somewhere next year.


I’m hoping to finish up To Bait a Rake (Rake Patrol #3) in 2018, then I’ll start on Charming the Thief, the next time-travel. Life is good.  I hope yours is as well.

Wishing you all the joys of the season and a fabulous new year!
