So it has been a dog’s age (bow wow!) since I posted here, and all sorts of things have been happening.
To whit, I have a new book contract with Avon for both print and digital, and the first book in my Dukes Behaving Badly series is titled The Duke’s Guide to Correct Behavior, and here is what it’s all about:
All of London knows the Duke of Rutherford has position and wealth. They also whisper that he’s dissolute, devilish, and determinedly unwed. So why, everyone is asking, has he hired a governess?
When Miss Lily Russell crosses the threshold of the Duke of Rutherford’s stylish townhouse, she knows she has come face to face with sensual danger. For this is no doting papa. Rather, his behavior is scandalous, and his reputation rightly earned. And his pursuit of her is nearly irresistible—but resist she must for the sake of her pupil.
As for the duke himself, it was bad enough when his unknown child landed on his doorstep. Now Lily, with her unassuming beauty, has aroused his most wicked fantasies—and, shockingly, his desire to change his wanton ways. He’s determined to become worthy of her, and so he asks for her help in correcting his behavior.
But Lily has a secret, one that, if it becomes known, could change everything . . .
The Duke’s Guide comes out November 25, 2014, and it is already in copy edits (!). And now, I am writing a novella for one of the secondary characters in The Duke’s Guide, and then the next full book–out sometime next summer–will feature another unexpected duke. Funny how those dukes just pop up all over the darn place.
I am writing a lot, and working full-time still, and doing all those things in-between that, perhaps, keep me sane–watching Game of Thrones, drinking good beer, dancing, etc.
