Whistling While I work

Since the release of my last novel, Rumer Has It, I’ve been a busy beaver. Not only have I been hard at work making notes on my next historical romance (to be published before Christmas), I’ve also taken care of a few other projects:

I spent time revising Duke of a Gilded Age and designing a new cover.

Blurb: When American-born Wesley Parker inherits a dukedom in 1890, he must be taught how 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. 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.

I also designed a new cover for Spinster.

Blurb: 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.

Jessamine’s Folly has a new cover as well.

Blurb: After her estate is entailed away, Jessamine Foster has no choice but to live with relatives who detest her. When her aunt gives her an ultimatum to leave, Jessamine accepts a position as companion to Lord Kirkendale’s sister—even though she’s been warned her predecessors can’t seem to resist the earl’s exceptional good looks. Can Jessamine manage to hold onto her job without losing her heart?

In addition, I’ve finally published paperback versions of all my historical romances, for those who enjoy the feeling of holding a good, old-fashioned book in their hands.

Furthermore, all four books in the Mannequin series are now available in the KindleUnlimited program.

Last, but not least, narrator Helen Taylor is preparing to record the audiobook version of My Fair Guardian, to be released before the end of the year.

Blurb: When Bethany is saddled with an unwanted, unrefined, and decidedly common guardian, she must polish him up before he’s fit for good society. As for Willoughby Winter, all that stands between him and his inheritance is to marry Bethany off. Can he succeed in his efforts before his past becomes known or will she manage to distract him from his goal—by hook or by crook?

Whew! While you are waiting for my next novel, I urge you to check out Rumer Has It. What are readers saying?

Upcoming Release • Rumer Has It

Jocelyn Rumer Conroy’s newspaper column allows her to write gossip about the population of Charleston while avoiding scrutiny of her own family secrets. She’s used to having her own way, but when arrogant and cosmopolitan Piers Wilde is brought into the newspaper, she chafes under his supervision. As they become writing partners in a new agony column, their relationship becomes fraught with tension…and an inconvenient attraction that cannot be denied.

A sweet historical romance set in 1910 Charleston.

I became interested in Charleston, South Carolina when my son began to attend college there. Although the town has changed and grown since it was founded in 1670, due to the War Between the States, a horrific earthquake in 1886, and numerous hurricanes, it has retained a unique sophisticated and cultured charm.

Rumer Has It is set in an era when rapid technological advancements began to shape America into a more modern society. Electricity, automobiles, telephones, silent movies, and the typewriter were becoming common. Hemlines were rising a trifle and the use of cosmetics for young ladies was no longer taboo. Of course, human nature being what it is, gossip was ubiquitous and rumors flew as quickly as a redtailed hawk after a field mouse.

My headstrong heroine, Jocelyn Rumer Conroy, works for a local newspaper as a gossip columnist and in sales. She loves her job…until handsome, arrogant Piers Wilde is hired as the new senior editor. When they become writing partners in an agony column, fireworks ensue.

Rumor has it that a certain lady and a certain gentleman may be falling in love…if they can only stop arguing first.

Rumer Has It will be released on July 28, 2020. Reserve your Kindle copy HERE.

#Freebie • The Star-Crossed Seamstress

Skylar flees a family scandal in Boston, expecting assistance in society from her English relatives. Once her plans fall apart, however, she is obliged to earn money with her skills as a seamstress. Just when she’s given up on the notion of marriage, her path crosses that of a charming laborer who inexplicably sets her pulse racing.

When wealthy Joe Fiddick hits a patch of bad luck, he seizes the opportunity to do something meaningful by helping a neighbor and her pretty granddaughter with repairs to their cottage. As it turns out, he has more in common with the granddaughter than he realizes…and what they share spells disaster for their budding romance.

Will Joe and Skylar be star-crossed lovers or can the rift between them be mended?
