Many, many thanks to Lily of Covers by Lily for these new, beautiful covers for my Daring Debutantes Series!!
It seems like I wait impatiently the whole year for this season to arrive and when it does I am never prepared! Life has a way of sneaking up on us like that, doesn’t it? Well, in all the commotion that this time of year brings, I feel I’ve neglected to bring you all my exciting news! So, here we go…
1. The Robber Bride is now an audiobook! And I can’t tell you how much I LOVE my narrator! She really embodied the spirit and intrigue of this story and of Victoria. As many of you may know, Victoria is my most favoritest (yes, I know it’s not a word!) character that I’ve ever written, so it was really, really important to me that the narrator capture everything I love about her and about this book. The lovely Stevie Zimmerman did not disappoint!
2. My Wetherby Brides short stories got a makeover! I am absolutely IN LOVE with this cover…I think it represents the stories inside to a tee. What do you think? Plus, the stunning Sherril Turner is hard at work bringing these stories to life in audiobook! Look for it by Christmas 🙂
3. Speaking of makeovers…The Matchbaker got a makeover too! Have you seen it? Thank you to my dear friend and cover designer, Lily Smith of Covers by Lily! And BONUS…the audiobook should be out just in time for Christmas!! And it features one of my oldest and dearest friends, Bianca Bryan, as the narrator. She’s a phenomenal actress and voiceover artist, and I’m so, so lucky to have her reading this book for me. Just WAIT till you hear it! 🙂

I’m so excited to announce the release of my latest historical romance novel, The Gypsy Bride! The second book in the Daring Debutantes series, this extra-long novella is an exciting romp through Regency England–
Engaged to a reprehensible baron, Bianca Manning knows she must do something to escape her fate. She decides that a Romany camp is the last place her mad fiance would think to look for her.
The last thing Emilian Carrol needs is a spirited Englishwoman in his life, but he can’t seem to say no when she begs to hide out in his tribe’s camp. And maybe she’s just the thing he needs to help heal his wounded heart.
Thomas Barclay, future Viscount Grantham, is bored to tears and looking for a distraction. When his old friend Baron Tisbury asks for help in tracking down his missing fiancee, Tom decides to make himself useful and goes in search of the wayward girl.
Caught between two worlds, Bianca must figure out which man holds the keys to her heart.
When I set out to write the Daring Debutante series, I wanted to do something different. I didn’t want to write another traditional, formulaic historical romance. I wanted to branch outside the norm, do things with my stories and my characters that probably would not have actually happened in Regency England, but that weren’t completely outside the realm of possibilities. So you won’t find magic or werewolves here, but you will find gutsy heroines, and heroes that you will fall in love with.

Thanks to my dear friend, Ava Stone, I’ve just discovered the virtual Regency paper doll, and it’s the greatest thing EVER! I started playing and couldn’t stop until I had created an avatar for each of my heroines. So without further ado, here they are…
Phoebe from A Gentleman Never Tells…
Becky from More than a Governess…
Chloe from The Wary Widow…
Elizabeth from The Bedeviled Bride…
Victoria from The Robber Bride…
And coming soon…Isabel from the upcoming Christmas anthology, Summons from the Duke…
