The Love Letters Series • New Cover

LLSfinalcover10_6_18The Love Letters Series has a new cover!

Two stories of twin sisters whose letters go astray. This duology contains A Gift for Lara and A Gift for Fiona.

A Gift for Lara

Lara Robinson wrote a love letter four years ago, but received no reply. Now the man to whom she gave her heart will visit Blythe Manor for Christmas. How can she enjoy the holidays knowing Miles Greystoke must despise her for revealing her feelings in such an unguarded fashion?

As an awkward youth, Miles fell in love with a kindred spirit…but his love was unrequited. Against his wishes, he’s now obliged to spend the holidays at Blythe Manor. Time has wrought changes in his physique, but his devotion to Lara Robinson has never wavered. He searches for the perfect present to show her how he feels, but nothing seems quite right…until he realizes the best sort of gift will embrace the true meaning of Christmas.

A Gift for Fiona

With one sister married and another soon to be engaged, Fiona worries she’ll be the last Robinson girl on the shelf. She pins her hopes on a handsome viscount, but his unexpected and public proposal to another girl hands her a stinging and demoralizing defeat. A new acquaintance awakens all her senses—until she realizes he’s related to the girl who stole her beau. On the heels of her humiliation, should Fiona instead consider marriage to a much older man whom she could never love?

Fiona’s unconventional, earthy looks and mischievous personality appeal to Rory Braithwaite much more than any other woman he’s ever met. Unfortunately, his sister has been the means of ruining Fiona’s happiness. Can he convince Fiona of his sincerity before she makes a mistake she’ll regret for the rest of her life…and his?

The Love Letters Series is available exclusively at Amazon right now, but look for its wide release on November 15, 2018.

Spinster in Wide Release

I’m pleased to announce Spinster is now in wide release. Click HERE for a universal link to your favorite bookstore. Which of my titles is next for wide release? Jessamine’s Folly will be available on October 31st!

Staring down life as an old maid, newly jilted Clare flees to a country home she’s inherited from her grandmother. She doesn’t count on clashing with her handsome neighbor, whose gentlemanly manners and education are at odds with his workingman’s image. As their relationship unfolds, however, she discovers the mysterious Meriweather Holcroft is not at all what he appears to be.

I’d also like to reveal the new cover for Duke of a Gilded Age.DOGANEWcover10_10_18

Blurb: When American-born Wesley Parker inherits a dukedom in 1890, he must learn to be an aristocrat. Assigned to the task is his attorney’s daughter, prim Belle Oakhurst. As they travel to England together on a luxurious ocean liner, their tempestuous relationship encounters more than rough seas. Although Wesley is increasingly attracted to Belle, she is already engaged. While Belle begins to regret her hasty promise to marry, she is bound by honor and duty to keep her pledge. Furthermore, a thoughtless fabrication on her part threatens to expose her as a liar. Neither Wesley nor Belle can foresee that their voyage across the Atlantic will be fraught with peril, and will cost more than one man his life.

Duke of a Gilded Age is still exclusive to Amazon HERE. Look for it to go into wide release on November 28, 2018.

Blurb: Juliet’s plans to wed Lord Elbourne come to naught when she discovers he’s obliged to wed an heiress instead. To salvage her dignity, she enters into a ruse with the heiress’s brother, whom she views as a rake. Unfortunately, he’s also the most attractive man she’s ever met.

Cody Gryphon will do anything to see his sister Stephanie wed to Lord Elbourne, including entering into a temporary engagement with her romantic rival. Although he intends to return to Texas as soon as his sister is wed, he finds it increasingly difficult to resist Juliet’s charms.

Can a rake and a debutante find their happily ever after?

The Ice Captain’s Daughter • Now Wide

sgrICD6x9My historical romance, The Ice Captain’s Daughter, is now widely available on outlets other than Amazon.  Click this Universal Link to find your favorite bookstore.

Blurb: The daughter of a wealthy ice merchant, Miss Jillian Roring intends to marry for love. En route to her first season in London, however, a failed kidnapping sends her into the arms of the most jaded bachelor in England. When Logan and Jillian unwittingly violate the rigid rules of propriety in Victorian-era England, he is obliged to make her an offer of marriage. Because she aspires to be more than an obligation, Jillian refuses the match. Logan follows her to London to woo her properly, but his scheming ex-fiancée has other plans.

To celebrate this wide release, I put together a 30-second book trailer. Enjoy!

The Ice Captain’s Daughter is also available in audiobook format, on Amazon, iTunes, or Audible. Listen to a sample:

Date Night Dinners • Review

Screen Shot 2018-07-02 at 7.56.23 AMWhen I was given a copy of Date Night Dinners (Meals To Make Together For a Romantic Evening) by Sloane Taylor, I was worried about my ability to write a proper review. I’m not a great cook. I make the same few dishes, over and over again, because they are simple, don’t require a lot of prep time, and always turn out well. Furthermore, since I know the author is a frequent contributor to Divine Magazine, I suspected the recipes were way beyond my ability.

As I started to flip through the pages of Date Night Dinners, however, my anxiety eased. Not only were there a broad variety of categories from which to choose, the recipes were both straightforward and easy enough, even for me.

For this review, my husband and I actually made one of the side dishes, Homemade Applesauce, and we were thrilled with the results. I altered the recipe by adding cinnamon and omitting most of the sugar, and it still tasted absolutely scrumptious. Even my dubious 19-year-old son ate a bowl and asked if there was any left!

I put together a video of the experience, to show how easy and fun it was. Date Night Dinners (arrow1twistingclick HERE for preview) is available both in ebook and paperback format, and I encourage you to give it a try. Two thumbs up! ~ Suzanne

Beach Reads • Historical Romance

In honor of Summer Solstice, more colloquially regarded as the advent of beach season, I’ve put together a 30-second Beach Reads video which I hope you will enjoy. All of my historical romance books are available for the Kindle. I have a more limited selection of audio books, and as of now only Spinster and The Mannequin are available in paperback. Please let me know in the comments section if you’d like to see other titles made available in paperback.  🙂
