Hi everyone. Dashes in waves and dances around the room
I’m so excited, that today it’s a straightforward ohhh wow I have a book out on Tuesday.
Even bigger wow that’s tomorrow. Does the chair swivel jigle and almost spills coffee The Scandalous Proposal of Lord Bennett is my debut novel with Carina, I’m more than a little excited. As every publishing house works in different ways, it’s been a steep, and thrilling learning curve. I’m enjoying every second of it, even when I scratch my head and wonder what something different means. I know we say English is a common language split by an ocean, well editor speak is along the same lines. Revisions, Edits, line edits, proof read, AA’s… (that one threw me for a while. I imagined someone coming to fix my car. The AA in the UK is a car rescue service…or Alcoholic’s Anonymous) However it’s fantastic.
It’s no secret that I fell into writing Regency romance almost by accident. My crit group, UCW were all chatting on the net one day, and the words I’m going to write a Regency Romance pooped out. I’ve no idea why, but I’ve always been fascinated by that era, by the undercurrents and the secrets that filled the ton and the way people behaved, and decided I’d like to see if I could put some of the machinations and romance into words.
Let’s hope I’ve succeeded.
To have and to hold?
Reluctant debutante Lady Clarissa Macpherson has never forgotten the forbidden kiss she shared with notorious rake, Lord Theodore ‘Ben’ Bennett, all those years ago. Even now, he’s the one man who sets Clarissa’s pulse racing and her skin tingling – no matter how hard she tries to ignore it!
Yet, when Ben rescues her from the unwanted advances of a drunken Lord at a society ball, she finds herself in a most scandalous predicament – engaged, to the most eligible bachelor in London!
Wedded? It appears so, but bedded? Clarissa demands more from her marriage than simply surrendering to her new husband’s sexual desires, especially when she realises she’s falling deeper in love with him every single day. Ben must prove that she’s the only woman for him – and surrender his heart!
Yet resisting her new husband’s delicious seduction may prove the hardest thing Clarissa has ever done…
And yeah, I’ve got to put these buy links on because I’m so, so excited. Oh… looks around I’ve already said that.
