Introducing My Fair Princess!


Have you seen my new cover? It’s gorgeous, isn’t it? MY FAIR PRINCESS is the first book in my new series, The Improper Princesses, and it’ll be out in August. MY FAIR PRINCESS┬áis the first in a set of spin-offs of The Renegade Royals, and I’m really excited about it. These books feature heroines who are the illegitimate daughters of England’s royal dukes, the half-sisters and cousins of the Renegade Royals.

In fact, Gillian Dryden, who is the heroine of MY FAIR PRINCESS, is the half-sister of Griffin Steele, the hero of CONFESSIONS OF A ROYAL BRIDEGROOM. Don’t worry–Griffin definitely makes an appearance in the book!

And here’s something that’s really fun. If you pre-order MY FAIR PRINCESS, you’ll receive an exclusive Renegade Royals short story, which you’ll receive on August 30th, the book’s release date. The short story will feature all your favorite Renegade Royals and their ladies, including Dominic and Chloe Hunter.

For details on the short story pre-order special, and to read the blurb and an except from MY FAIR PRINCESS, please visit the Book Page.
