I have a new Christmas romance up for pre-order now. It will be out on November 26, 2019, and I’m putting it on a holiday sale ($.99 instead of $3.99) until January 6, 2020. It will also be out in print later this month. Here’s the back cover description and the pre-order links are below. I hope you enjoy it!

Nathan Fitzroy hates the holidays. Estranged from his family for refusing to marry, he’s still expected to keep up appearances, which means attending their holiday celebrations. And that means that, from the beginning of December until the middle of January, he needs to find work that will let him take off almost as many days as he works there. For him, that means working at a molly house called the Goat’s Horn.

Owen Landon was quite content to be a stone cutter. It was what he’d trained for, and it earned him enough money to pay his brother’s school fees and still live comfortably enough in a cottage in their village. He’d always been told his father was distantly related to nobility, but he’d never thought much of it, until a solicitor came to tell him he was the new Earl of Morebrook, a position he has no idea how to fill.

One night in December, when Owen can’t stand his new role another moment, he sneaks away to the seediest molly house he can find, the Goat’s Horn, for a distraction. And find one he does, a beautiful fellow with just the accent and bearing he’s supposed to be learning. When he sees the man again away from the molly house, he comes up with a plan to both spend more time with him and learn to be an earl. Owen offers him a position tutoring him before the start of the Christmas parties he’s supposed to attend.

Nathan’s worst nightmare comes true when one of the clients of the Goat’s Horn recognizes him outside of the molly house. But the man offers him a position that will allow him to earn money away from the Goat’s Horn until Christmas. If only he can remember he’s supposed to be tutoring the fellow, not bedding him, and certainly not falling in love with him.

A steamy Christmas romance with hints of Pygmalion. Approx. 50,000 words, 200 pages

Sir Arthur Holden was lonely. That had to be why he found the private inquiry agent, Henry Parker, so intriguing. Simple loneliness after he’d gotten his two best friends arrested in a raid on a molly house he’d recommended. Now they’re both out of prison, but William is living in Cornwall and Thomas is hiding in Yorkshire. And the intriguing Mr. Parker says he has a way to help Thomas come out of hiding. That would be the only reason to hire him. Nothing at all to do with wanting to see him again.

Small News on Lord Edwin Falls

A quick bit of news on Lord Edwin Falls. When I was putting together the last post with the cut scenes from the earlier Swan’s Nest books, I realized Lord Edwin’s father got demoted somewhere along the way. He was supposed to be a duke, not an earl (the fathers’ ranks were increasing as the series went on). If you’ve read the book, it’s not really in there very much since the book focuses on Edwin, but it does effect Edwin’s title (younger sons of earl are Honorable Misters not Lord) so I’ll be going through and correcting it for future editions. I just didn’t want anyone wondering what had happened if your copy changes since that is the sort of thing that would bug me.

 

Update on The Merchant of Reeves Square

It has a title! I was hoping to have the third book in the Swan’s Nest series out by now, but I’m sure you’ve noticed it isn’t yet. I am working on it, it’s just going a little slower than I’d hoped. So I am posting a little while-you-wait treat. Since I was writing the books in first person, I wrote a couple of scenes from the non-point-of-view character to get their reactions to whatever was going on right. They’re just scenes not fully developed bits, and they’re not properly edited although I did read through and try to catch anything glaring. They might be a but spoilery, so if you haven’t read the first two Swan’s Nest books, you might want to avoid them for what you haven’t read, otherwise, here are the links.
