Edits for The Artful Match are nearly done! I’m excited to share the cover and a bit about the book.
Cara Bernay has never fit in. At loose ends in London after a near tragedy costs her a job, she is befriended by 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 arrogant earl forcing 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.
More details to follow soon, once I have emerged from the editing cave!
There’s a Goodreads giveaway for The Captain’s Daughter going on during the month of November. Now that’s something to be thankful for!
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!
