Release Day Updates!

I’m so happy that The Artful Match is now out in the world, and is available at bookstores and eReaders near you!

Available Now!

All this week, I’m sharing photos on Facebook of pictures that I used as inspiration for The Artful Match. I hope you’ll stop by and enjoy learning more about the background of this book.

If you are in the area of Raleigh/Durham, North Carolina, I’m holding a painting party to celebrate the release of THE ARTFUL MATCH! Because the heroine of the book, Cara Bernay, is an artist, I thought it would be fun to dive into the painting experience for a few hours. We’ll be making a painting of Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, a beloved symbol of North Carolina. There is a tie-in of sorts to THE ARTFUL MATCH. The story includes a hurricane — something we North Carolinians are very familiar with! — and a shipwreck, which lighthouses are of course designed to prevent. Everything you need to make the painting is provided, including instruction, and every participant will receive an autographed copy of THE ARTFUL MATCH. There will also be snacks and beverages provided, and the facility offers wine and beer for sale. Doors open at 2:30 for socializing, and the painting starts at 3 pm. Cost is $35 per person. To reserve your spot, be sure to sign up HERE.

MORE FUN NEWS! My website is currently under construction (in the background). I’ll have a new website up soon, with a fresh look and fun links for you to enjoy.

My thanks to all the readers who have enjoyed these books! Happy reading!


The Artful Match releases April 2!

The Artful Match is available for preorder at your favorite retailer, including Barnes & Noble, Amazon, iBooks, Lifeway, and ChristianBook.com. Look for news soon regarding upcoming book launch events, in person and online. I’m excited to be sharing this story with you!

Cara Bernay has never found a place to fit in or to thrive. At loose ends in London after a near-tragedy costs her a job, Cara befriends a rising young artist. With his help, she begins planning a new life and developing her own artistic talent. But soon Cara finds herself at odds with the artist’s brother–a handsome but serious-minded earl who wants to force his brother back to a “respectable” life.

Henry Burke, the Earl of Morestowe, feels the weight of growing financial burdens. His profligate and emotionally unstable brother is making matters worse, and Henry needs him back home. Despite misgivings about Cara’s mysterious background, Henry sees she’s a positive influence on his brother and on Henry’s unruly young ward, and he strikes a deal with her to return with them to their estate.

But the family has their own secrets, and when Cara, drawn ever closer to Henry, stumbles onto the truth, she must choose between following her heart and pursuing a bold plan that could bring disaster.

Cover Reveal!

Here is the cover for book 2 in the London Beginnings series, called
The Heart’s Appeal. Isn’t it gorgeous!!?

The heroine, Julia Bernay, is standing in front of the Royal Courts of Justice. Very fitting since the hero, Michael Stephenson, is a barrister. The Royal Courts of Justice looks a bit like a cathedral, doesn’t it? But it’s another example of lovely Victorian architecture.

Here’s a bit of what the book is about:
Julia Bernay has come to London to become a doctor–a glorious new opportunity for women during the reign of Victoria. When she witnesses a serious accident, her quick actions save the life of barrister Michael Stephenson. He rose above his family’s stigma, but can he rise to the challenge of the fiercely independent woman who has swept into his life?

Look for it on March 8, 2018!

I’m so excited to share this cover with you!

Here’s a bit of what THE CAPTAIN’S DAUGHTER is about:

When a series of circumstances beyond her control leave Rosalyn Bernay alone and penniless in London, she chances upon a job backstage at a theater which is presenting the most popular show in London. A talented musician and singer, she feels immediately at home and soon becomes enthralled with the idea of pursuing a career on the stage.

An injury during a skirmish in India has forced Nate Moran out of the army until he recovers. Filling his time at a stable of horses for hire in London, he has also spent the past two months working nights as a stagehand, filling in for his injured brother. Although he’s glad he can help his family through a tough time, he is counting the days until he can rejoin his regiment. London holds bitter memories for him that he is anxious to escape. But then he meets the beautiful woman who has found a new lease on life in the very place Nate can’t wait to leave behind.

Book fireworks

I’m so happy to announce the sale of my new 3-book series to David Long at Bethany House. The trilogy follows the stories of three orphaned sisters, now young women, who each find a new life—and love—in London. The book is scheduled for release in 2017.

As I love to do in my books, I’ve placed this series against the backdrop of real places and events. The first book, THE CAPTAIN’S DAUGHTER, is set backstage at the original production of Gilbert and Sullivan’s comic operetta “HMS Pinafore” in 1879.

If you like Pinterest, I’ve made a board here that will give you a “sneak preview”!

 


“Well-written, sweet, passionate and fun…”

I recently received a wonderful review for A Bride for the Season from the Historical Novel Society. They even mention Much Ado About Nothing, which makes the Shakespeare geek in me very, very happy!

Here’s an excerpt from the review:

“This delightful Victorian romance (set in 1853) concludes Delamere’s Love’s Grace Trilogy yet can just as easily be enjoyed on its own, independent of the series. There is something in this story that is reminiscent of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing, including the complexity of the characters and the amusing resolution of the plot. Well-written, sweet, passionate and fun—and all that without a single scene of graphic love!—A Bride for the Season is a most enjoyable read.”
