Bonus Content Special & Giveaway!

Gentleman High Res

On Tuesday, I’ll be joining three other lady scribes in the release of a new Regency anthology, A GENTLEMAN FOR ALL SEASONS. Shana Galen, Kate Noble, Theresa Romain, and I have all penned four new full-length novellas set in the lovely village of Hemshawe. The anthology has a holiday twist, too. The four couples featured in the interconnected stories play out their courtships against the backdrop of seasonal festivities, both in Hemshawe and at a stately country manor nearby.

My novella is called The Season for Loving, and it’s a Regency Christmas story to wrap up the anthology. It was really fun to work on this joint project, weaving the romantic tales of four separate couples into a holiday extravaganza.

GENTLEMAN will go on sale this Tuesday in both print and digital, but it’s already available for pre-order. AND if you do pre-order, or if you have already pre-ordered, you’re eligible to receive special bonus content from the four of us. We’ve got lots of neat stuff, including videos, exclusive excerpts, and bonus chapters. My contribution is the first chapter from MY FAIR PRINCESS, book one in my new historical romance series, out in August 2016. You’ll be getting a glimpse of this new series WAY before anyone else!

It’s easy to unlock the bonus content. After you’ve pre-ordered your copy of GENTLEMAN, simply click on this link and follow the instructions. Then, enjoy!

Please stop by next Tuesday for the release day fun, and for a list of stops on the GENTLEMAN blog tour. Most of those stops will include some fab giveaways. And be sure to hop over right now to Fresh Fiction to enter our pre-release giveaway of books!

Cover Reveal & Contest!!

Gentleman final

And here it is!! The fabulous cover for A GENTLEMAN FOR ALL SEASONS, a new anthology of Regency-set novellas to be released on Nov. 10th. As you can see, I’m in fabulous company with Shana Galen, Kate Noble, and Theresa Romain. The anthology is a series of connected stories featuring the romantic adventures of four couples, played out against the backdrop of the seasons of the year. There are summer festivals, wine-tasting competitions, and Christmas parties galore!

Here’s the blurb:

The tiny village of Hemshawe is the sort of place where nothing ever happens…until a handsome ex-soldier and his matchmaking sister let the imposing manor house at the edge of town. The friendly Londoners shake up the staid people of Hemshawe, and villagers see each other in a new and oh-so-appealing light.

Suddenly long-sparring enemies become lovers, a town festival heralds a new start for a fallen woman and a dandy, and a man who has given up on love gets a second chance with the woman he never forgot. And the matchmaker herself? She won’t rest until she finds her own happily-ever-after…

There’s more info on the GENTLEMAN book page, along with pre-order links.

Kensington Publishing is running a fun #Ultimate Heroes competition on their website and Tumblr page. My book, CONFESSIONS OF A ROYAL BRIDEGROOM, is pitted against Theresa Romain’s SEASON FOR SURRENDER. Since Theresa and I are good pals and love each other’s books, we’ve decided to engage in an epically lame battle of Regency-themed trash talk. You can follow along on Twitter, if you like, under the hashtag of #UltimateHero. We’re having a great time!

You can vote for the heroes here. The best part? You can vote for either hero as many times as you like! *snort*

PS. Both CONFESSIONS and SEASON are on sale on Kindle and Nook for only $2.99 for the month of Feb!
