Hi All -
Happy Holidays everyone! I’m doing some serious celebration as I’ve just turned in book two in the Rake Patrol Series, The Whisky Laird’s Bed. I love this story. Once again a Victorian personal ad leads the ladies of the Rake Patrol on a mission to track down a nefarious rake. This time they are led to Scotland where Claire, a firebrand believer in the Temperance movement, falls head- over-boots for a sexy whisky distiller. Something or someone has to give, but who will it be? This book is scheduled for a digital release in the spring of 2014 under Berkley’s Intermix line. No cover yet, but you know it’ll be posted here first once it’s released. Watch this website, or sign up for my newsletter to learn the details as I receive them.
You might wonder about the spelling of whisky. In America and Ireland, this distilled and aged liquor is spelled whiskey. However, in Scotland, the word is whisky. As this book is set in Scotland, I thought we should use the Scottish spelling. I used the Dall Estate in Scotland as a basis for the whisky laird’s castle. It’s currently up for sale! Anyone in the market for a Scottish castle?
While I’ve written The Whisky Laird’s Bed to be a stand alone novel, you’ll see several of the characters from The Casanova Code returning in The Whiskey Laird’s Bed. Hope you love it. Be sure to let me know what you think.
2014 is shaping up to be a very active year. Be sure to check “the latest news” on this website for where I’ll be. I would love to meet you and give you a peacock feather – so if I’m in your neighborhood, be sure to stop by.
Hope you have a joyful Holiday! Best wishes for a fabulous New Year!
