New Regency Series Unveiled!

Over the past two weeks, you’ve probably heard me mention my new Regency Series and now for the covers and a little about it!

Series Name: Gentlemen of Honor

Book 1: Secrets of a Viscount

Secrets of a Viscount—One summer night, Sebastian Gentry, Lord Belgrave hauled the wrong young lady to Gretna Green. When her identity is exposed, the only obvious solution is to get an annulment. Only, just like his elopement plans, things didn’t go as planned and while she has reason to believe they are no longer married, he knows better. Wanting to make things right for her, he offers to help her find a husband—what neither counts on is it just might be the one she’s still secretly married to.

This book is written and is halfway through editing, be looking for it sometime in mid to late January.

Book 2: Desires of a Baron

Desires of a Baron—Giles Goddard, Lord Norcourt is odd. Odder still, he has suddenly taken a fancy to his brother’s love interest, the fallen Lucy Whitaker. Lucy was once thrown over by a lord and she has little desire to let it happen again, but she’s about to learn that his desires just might be enough for the both of them.

This book has a whopping 1,827 words so far. Look for it (hopefully) in March or April.

Book 3: Passions of a Gentleman

Passions of a Gentleman—Having been thrown over twice already, Simon Appleton has given up his pursuit for a wife—especially if his only choice is the elusive Miss Henrietta Hughes. But when he discovers a secret about her, he’s not above helping to protect her…

This book has absolutely no words started on it and will hopefully be out in May, June or July.

A few quick facts:

  • The talented Aileen Fish made these covers for me based on two very vague instructions: poofy dress and staircases.
  • These books coincide loosely with the Banks family. In the end of Imperfect, Edwina and Wallace go to a ball put on by Brooke and Andrew (Lord and Lady Townson) where Edwina dances with a Lord Belgrave who is ironically the hero for book one in this series. I wrote that scene on purpose and gave that dancer that name because I’d already written about 20% of Secrets of a Viscount (lovingly nicknamed: Patrick and Eliza, then later Sebastian and Eliza, then changed to Sebastian and Isabelle) and wanted there to be some sort of a connection between the two series. I didn’t realize just yet that I’d write seven other books and then come back to finishing this one.
  • As you might have noticed from before the first book, and consequently the other two in the series, was hard to name and for almost three years now, I called it by the names of the hero and heroine–both of which are no longer the original names. Initially Patrick from Secondhand was named Sebastian. But I changed it when somewhere before I wrote his book I read a book that had a Sebastian and Juliet paring. I wanted to keep Juliet so I switched this hero and that hero’s name and ta-da it worked. I then changed Eliza to Isabelle while writing Southerner because the heroine’s name in that book was Ella. Forget that I already had an Emma, but Ella and Eliza just seemed even more confusing.
  • Desires of a Baron has a heroine we met in my first series: Lucy Whitaker, Paul’s former love interest. She meets Liberty when she collects her illiterate illegitimate and explains about her past with Paul. She needed a happily-ever-after, so here it is. I don’t think Paul and Liberty or any others will be making appearances in this book since it’s six years later, but you never know…
  • Passions of a Gentleman also has a familiar heroine: Henrietta Hughes, Juliet from Secondhand‘s sister. Because they ARE sisters and Henrietta is living with Patrick and Juliet, I do think there will definitely be some interaction with those two and maybe even their half a dozen kids.

I believe that’s all for today. My husband calls days like today: Christmas Eve Eve. So in the spirit of the holidays, Merry Christmas Eve Eve.

PS sorry for any typos. The ice storm has killed my internet and I had to write this from my phone.

  1. I just finished Secrets of a Viscount and can’t wait for Giles’ story! Do you have an eta? I’ve read all of your other books and can’t get enough of them. Wallace is my favorite hero so far and in a similar way to how I felt before reading his story, I can’t wait to get inside Giles’ head. 🙂

  2. I have tried time and again to gain the book Passions of A Gentleman and cannot buy it nor download anywhere….I try and none seem to work.
    Please tell me how to go ,about getting Simon’s book as I have come to think of it.Thank you in advance…Edie.

    • Edie,

      I am so very sorry you’re having trouble finding it, unfortunately, I am having trouble finishing it! That’s the truth and I feel awful because I should have had it done a year ago, but some thing…then another and another and another have happened and it’s delayed me from being able to work on it. But I am trying. Again, my deepest apologies.

      Rose
