It feels likes it’s been FOREVER (and I promise I still have not forgotten Simon’s story–he nags me every night from the back of my mind to get on with it!)
In the meantime, I have a new story that came out today as part of the Duke of Danby Christmas Anthology. My story Mistletoe & Michaelmas is found in the book The Duke’s Christmas Greeting.
Mistletoe & Michaelmas ~ The last thing Daphne Cavanaugh wants to do is marry—well, perhaps not the last thing, but it’s certainly not at the top of her list, especially if it’s only to get her out of her guardian’s hair…
Aaron Lentz has faith in marriage—for other people, that is. Having been betrayed and made a fool once before, he has no inclination to walk down the aisle…
But perhaps a sprig of mistletoe, a dash of fate and a shameless, meddling family (even in the form of an ancient duke), Michaelmas, 1816 might bring about a future they never expected.
This book is part of a three-book, nine-novella Christmas collection. You can see the other books here:
Mistletoe & Michaelmas is connected to and features the hero and heroine (Gareth and Jane) from my last novella, The Perfect Lady Worthe
The last thing Jane Cavanaugh would ever expect is to be married—she is an invalid, after all—but that doesn’t mean she can’t help with her sister’s husband hunt! (Even if it is with a wee bit of reluctance.)
The last thing Gareth, Lord Worthe would ever want to do is to fall in love with his closest friend’s younger sister.
But fate just might have something else in store for these two…
In case you haven’t heard the news, I was one of the 45 crazy authors who got together to do something that’s never been done before: a 50 book series, covering each of the 50 United States. My state is South Carolina and on this Thanksgiving (Nov. 26th), Jessie (my heroine) and I will be thankful for its release!
Tired of living under her father’s iron thumb of control Jessie Wilcox decides to do the unthinkable: run away to Montana as a mail-order bride. The only obstacle in her way: the one hundred miles between her home in Williamsburg County and the train depot in Charleston.
Joel Cunningham is in utter disbelief when the girl he once loved beyond reason is on his front porch asking him to disobey her father’s wishes and drive her to Charleston. Logic and reason scream no; his lips, however, say yes.
Will the one hundred miles ahead of them be enough to overcome the five years of painful regrets or will Jessie follow her dream for a new life in Montana?
