I’m doing my regular thing at The Jaunty Quills today. I’m talking about birthdays (love them or hate them?) and giving away an ARC of my upcoming historical romance, How to Plan a Wedding for a Royal Spy. Click here to join me!
It’s my regular gig today at The Sisterhood of the Jaunty Quills. Come join me for an interesting discussion about the supposed demise of the romantic suspense genre, and for a chance to win a copy of my new VK Sykes romantic suspense, Lethal Confessions.
You can join me at The Jaunty Quills here.
Lethal Confessions now on sale!
The brutal murder of her twin sister drove Amy Robitaille into a career as a homicide detective for Palm Beach County. When a serial killer targets the wives of local baseball players, Amy has more than just a professional interest at stake—her only surviving sister fits the profile of the other victims. Amy’s hell-bent on catching the killer, not only to protect her sister but to destroy the demons haunting her since the death of her twin.
Baseball star and former soldier Luke Beckett has just retired from the game and is looking to move on with his life. When he’s asked to consult on the serial killer case for the local police, he finds the challenge he needs—despite the objections of lead detective Amy Robitaille. But Luke has no intention of backing away from the job and every intention of getting to know the intriguing detective.
Amy has no time to babysit a celebrity consultant while trying to catch a serial killer. But Luke is not the man she assumed him to be and he threatens to become a powerful distraction. That’s the last thing she needs, especially when the killer starts closing in on her family. But without Luke’s help, Amy stands to lose everything.
I’m so happy to feature Jaunty Quills sister Robyn DeHart on the blog today. Robyn is an award-winning author who writes fantastic Victorian historical romance; she specializes in adventurous, unique, and very romantic stories with strong, smart heroines. The Chicago Tribune calls her books “wonderfully entertaining,” and her readers would surely agree.
Isn’t that a gorgeous cover? Here’s the blurb for A Little Bit Scandalous:
A woman in search of a gamble…
Mathematics prodigy, Caroline Jellico, plans to support herself by winning big in the gaming hells of London—while dressed as a boy. She’s tired of waiting for the elusive Roe to notice her. She’ll marry him or no man.
A gambler in need of redemption…
Monroe Grisham, Duke of Chanceworth, needs to marry off his beautiful young ward and ensure she attaches herself to the right man, not an irresponsible cad like him. But all grown up now, Caroline’s presence is an utter distraction. One he can neither act on nor deny.
A game of seduction…
But when Roe and Caroline meet across the gaming table, all bets are off. Seduction is in the cards and the winner will take all…or lose everything.
For my readers today, Robyn is giving away a copy of the first book in her Forbidden Love series, A Little Bit Wicked. Just tell me what kind of heroine you like in historical romances–the experienced widow, the bluestocking scientist, or the young debutante about to take on the world? One person who comments will win a copy of Robyn’s new book. And don’t forget to check out Robyn’s website and follow her on facebook and Twitter!
The winners of Flo Fitzpatrick’s books are May and Ivy. Congratulations! I’ll be in touch.
