I'm doing a promotion with some other indie authors where we all drop a book to .99 around black friday. Mine is "To Burn". Why not use this oppertunity to check out some great authors you haven't tried before?
Anne Staverton started life in a brothel. Her mother, beautiful and without a ruthless bone in her body, struggled out of the brothel and into the life of a courtesan. She was not very successful at it, lacking the ruthless streak so necessary to the trade. Anne, taken under Sophia Dalby's wing, is determined to be both beautiful and, if not ruthless, at least smart in her decisions.
It is for that reason alone that she won't tumble into Lord Dutton's bed. Even though she would love to. Even though it is all she thinks about. She won't. Not until she can meet Lord Dutton on his own terms. In 1804, after years of effort, she can. Anne can finally have her way with Dutton. And Dutton can have his way, or so he thinks, with her.
Lord Dutton is in for the ride of his life. In more ways than one.
Book 1 in the More Courtesan Chronicles series. Available on Amazon and B&N.
**The two novellas in this collection can also be found separately in Encounter At The British Museum and The Wrong Heiress.
*The events in these two novellas dovetail with scenes in the novel Much Ado About Dutton.
Elizabeth and Elena Ardenzy are twin sisters and twin heiresses. Their father made his fortune and now his fortune simply must result in a lovely titled husband for each of his daughters. Good marriages aren't easy to make, even with a fortune at hand, as Elizabeth and Elena unfortunately discover. Elizabeth has almost captured Lord Redding; he seems hours away from making a formal proposal and Elizabeth is prepared to do her duty to her family by marrying him---until she meets a tall, dark stranger in the British Museum who sweeps her off her feet and makes the notion of familial duty seem very dull indeed.
Elena would be very happy to take Lord Redding off Elizabeth's hands, but she's not quite sure how to do that. With a little push in the right direction from Sophia, Lady Dalby and Anne, Lady Staverton, each heiress finds true love with the right man.
Four fabulous Regency romance authors, four great stories that have one thing in common: each romantic couple has a scene in London's famous British Museum. My novella is set in the Regency world of Sophia Dalby and, as always, she takes a hand in seeing that things turn out as they should.
A Chance Encounter
Jamie Caversham is a bastard, quite literally. He is bound for Canada and a new life after one last visit to the British Museum . . . where he meets Elizabeth Ardenzy. Elizabeth is betrothed (nearly), her life planned to perfection by her father. Unless a bastard convinces her to run away to Canada first.
Digital release: Feb 14!
