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

When William Chambers, the Duke of Bedford, inherited his title, he also inherited a crumbling-down-around-him ancestral home along with his father’s gambling debts. 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. Everything has been arranged but the marriage contract has one small loophole: all Fran’s children are to be educated in America. To return to her beloved country, all she has to do is become pregnant by her new husband, the sooner the better.  Good thing she gets a little help from a courtesan’s secret journal….

    Happy autumn!

    It’s been a blast of a summer with book signings around the region and the RWA convention at Disneyworld on the last week in July.

    We took a tour of the Yellowstone area and the Grand Tetons in August. Beautiful country!  You can really appreciate the majesty in nature there.

    We came home to release THE SEDUCTION OF A DUKE (above).  However, there’s no time to relax yet.

                  

    I’m heading back to Florida, this time to St. Petersburg, for the Novelist’s Inc convention the first week in October.  I’ve never attended this particular conference before so I’m really looking forward to it.  While we’re in the state, we plan to zip to the Atlantic side of the peninsula and check out St. Augustine.  I’ve heard it’s wonderful with lots of little places to explore. This will be a writing/working vacation, but hopefully a vacation nonetheless.

    Next up on the release schedule is Blame the Moonlight.  This has been available in Kindle Unlimited but I want to release in everywhere in October, especially as it’s a Halloween novella.  The story features a contemporary version of a woman who turns invisible in moonlight, can’t help it—it just happens.  If you click on the cover in the book section of the website, you’ll see more details of the story.  If you’re a fan of light, humorous paranormal, this may be the book for you.

    Till next time —
