Cover Reveal!!


I’m thrilled to announce the cover reveal of a really cool project I’m involved in with three fabulous historical authors–Anna Campbell, Shana Galen, and Kate Noble.  In mid-October, we’ll be releasing an anthology of original short stories, all revolving around a glittering Christmas ball set in a beautiful mansion in Grosvenor Square, London.  I had a great time working with three such talented authors, and I can’t wait for it to come out.

Here’s the blurb:

Four breathtakingly romantic tales of a Regency Christmas from four bestselling romance authors.

Down through the years, enchantment touches a tall gray house in Grosvenor Square. The legend of Lady Winterson’s Christmas ball promises true love and happiness to one lucky couple. Who will feel the magic this winter?

1803 – The Seduction of a Duchess by Shana Galen
Rowena Harcourt, the Duchess of Valere, never forgot the handsome footman who helped her escape the French Revolution. For fourteen years, Gabriel Lamarque has loved Rowena-now at Lady Winterson’s Christmas ball, has fate finally delivered a chance to win her hand?

1818 – One Kiss for Christmas by Vanessa Kelly
Nigel Dash is London’s most reliable gentleman, a reputation he never minded until he fell in love with beautiful Amelia Easton. Unfortunately, Amelia sees Nigel as a dependable friend, not a dashing suitor. At Lady Winterson’s famous Christmas ball, Nigel vows to change Amelia’s mind-by sweeping her off her feet.

1825 – His Christmas Cinderella by Anna Campbell
At the season’s most glittering ball, a girl who has never dared to dream of forever after discovers a Christmas miracle.

1830 – The Last First Kiss by Kate Noble
Susannah Westforth has always loved Sebastian Beckett – but he’s only ever seen her as a friend.  When Sebastian takes his Grand Tour, Susannah transforms herself into a woman he’ll notice. Now Sebastian is back, just in time for Lady Winterson’s Christmas ball – but the last thing he expects to see is his little Susie, all grown up…

You’re invited to join the whirling dance at Lady Winterson’s sparkling Christmas ball, where miracles happen and true love shines forever. How can you resist?

To celebrate the upcoming release of A Grosvenor Square Christmas, I’m giving away a copy of Debbie Mason’s brand new holiday contemporary romance, The Trouble With Christmas (North America only, please).  Just tell me what your favorite holiday is, and why, for a chance to win this wonderful book!

  1. My favorite holiday is Halloween, with Christmas a very close second. I love dressing up and seeing others dress up. I love taking the kids trick or treating and we also dress up as a family. Sometimes we coordinate, and sometimes we wear just whatever we want. This book sounds good, can’t wait to check it out. Looking forward to the new Christmas book from all the ladies.

  2. I do not qualify for this as I’m in the UK. However, my fave day is my wedding anniversary – not really a holiday.
    10 June (1972), and we still love each other. He’s my hero!
    I get an Amazon gift voucher – lots of lovely historical romance books for me.

  3. I love Christmas 🙂 mainly b/c I love the decorations and snow and everyone seems to be in much better moods. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Wow Vanessa, your upcoming anthology with all those other great girlies, sounds amazing. My favorite holiday is Christmas as it’s a time for my children and grandchildren, to all be together with my hubby and I. I love the carols, the food, the treats, and most of all, the smiling and happy faces on everybody.

  5. My favorite Halliday is Christmas it’s the only time our family can be good to each other! And behave! LOL Na I also love Thanksgiving when we all sit at the table and tell what each of us are greatful for, when my teens were little some of the stuff they would come up with like when my 4 year old said I’m gratful for the little mouse in my closet cause he eats my sandwich when I don’t want it! eek! What mouse? well it didn’t stay for long after I cause it and turn it lose out in the feld. she’s 19 years old now.

    I can’t wait to read your new book I will be getting it when it comes out, I love this time of year all the Christmas romances come out!

  6. I love Thanksgiving, it is the one holiday where we can get every member of the family home to all spend time together. Christmas is wonderful, but usually all the off shoots of our family want to be at home with their own little families.

  7. Christmas is my favorite holiday. Whether we celebrate it with a large family get together or just the two of us, we enjoy reflecting on the peace and hope the season represents.
    Another bonus is all the wonderful Christmas books out there. I have a large box and try to reread as many as possible each year. Of course, I am always adding to it with all the great books that come out each year.
    Thank you for the giveaway and best of luck on the release of A GROSVENOR SQUARE CHRISTMAS.
