Labor Day #Sale

From Saturday, September 4th through Saturday, September 11, Courtship on Eaton Square, Jessamine’s Folly, and Lady Fallows’ Secrets are 99 cents at Amazon. (US only)

Courtship on Eaton Square

After Angela’s engagement to a viscount falls apart, she seeks refuge from London gossip with a family friend in Canterbury. From the moment she steps foot in the railway station, she locks horns with Mr. Chaucer, fresh from romantic troubles of his own. When circumstances conspire to throw Angela and Mr. Chaucer together, they form an uneasy alliance to regain what they have lost. Unfortunately for Angela, her growing attraction to the man threatens her carefully laid plans.

Jessamine’s Folly

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?

Lady Fallows’ Secrets

After a riding accident leaves Sybil’s brother, Ash, physically and emotionally devastated, she breaks off a courtship to devote herself to his care. Unfortunately, the one girl who could save Ash from his increasing melancholy has been whisked off to London by her ironfisted guardian. When a handsome stranger offers Sybil his help, she dives headlong into a clandestine scheme fraught with danger. As a daring rescue unfolds, deceit and mysteries are brought to light, the bonds of friendship are tested…and passion is unleashed. Can Sybil manage to save her brother without losing her heart to a man she cannot marry?

Psst! The Mannequin (Book One of the Mannequin Series) is also at its lowest price right now, too. 99 cents!

When she was a poor country girl in a hand-me-down dress, Rosamund saved the Duke of Swanhaven from the brink of despair…only to fall in love with him. Now a celebrated mannequin for an exclusive London dressmaker, her glamorous life is empty without the man to whom she gave her heart. Can a beastly duke and a beautiful mannequin ever find a fairy-tale ending?

Slings And Arrows on the Yellow Brick Road

Imagine that you are Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz, skipping along the Yellow Brick Road on your way to the Emerald City. Suddenly, the Wicked Witch flies in your face and lobs an insult along with, “…and your little dog, too!” She zooms off into the sky before you can retort, of course, because the last thing the Wicked Witch wants is an actual conversation. Her intent is to get you to give up your quest, go back to Munchkinland, and settle for being a big celebrity fish in a small pond.

It wouldn’t be much of a story if Dorothy gave up, would it? Oh, it would be easier to capitulate. She could collapse in the corn field, have herself a good cry, and then slink back the way she came…

You are transported into the scene…

As Dorothy decides to do exactly that, Scarecrow gives her a piercing glance. “What are you doing, Dot? I’d like to get to the Emerald City before nightfall.”

“I’m not good enough to get to the Emerald City.” Dorothy’s lower lip trembled. “And if I keep going, the Wicked Witch will insult me more and insults hurt!”

Scarecrow stood with his arms akimbo. “Seriously? You’re going to let a green woman who consorts with Flying Monkeys stop you from achieving your dreams?”

“But why would she pick on me in particular?” As Dorothy picked up a rotting apple from the field next to her and tossed it, Toto scampered off in pursuit. “I must be some kind of loser.”

Scarecrow sighed as he sank down onto his knees. “You’re new around here so maybe you don’t know, but everyone on the Yellow Brick Road gets harassed.” As he shook his head, a few pieces of straw fell out. “The Powers That Be try to discourage anyone from succeeding except the people on their team.”

“Really?” Dorothy studied him a moment. “That’s not fair.”

“Fair?” Scarecrow rolled his eyes. “No such thing in this universe, friend. You have to know the game and have enough gumption to keep going anyway.”

Dorothy bit her lip. “Mean people stink.”

“That they do, but you have to understand a great many mean people are actually Flying Monkeys in disguise, sent by the Wicked Witch to kick the stuffing out of you.” He stuffed a protruding bit of straw back into his plaid flannel shirt. “I should know. I’ve had the stuffing kicked out of me so many times, I can’t think straight.”

She gave him a grin. “Maybe that’s because you don’t have a brain yet.”

Scarecrow snickered. “You got me on that one.” He stood and reached out his hand. “Come on, fellow traveler. We won’t give up our quest until the credits roll at the end of the movie.”

“All right.” Dorothy allowed him to help her to her ruby slipper-clad feet. “Why are you so brave?”

A sad smile lifted the corners of his lips. “I have nothing to lose, that’s why.”

Her spine straightened. “Neither do I.” Dorothy glanced over her shoulder. “Let’s go, Toto. We’re off to see the wizard!”

The moral of the story is…expect Flying Monkeys to bedevil you as you try to achieve your dream. Find the courage to keep going because the credits haven’t yet rolled.

Spinster

Staring down life as an old maid, newly jilted Clare flees to a country home she’s inherited from her grandmother.

As their relationship unfolds, however, she discovers the mysterious Meriweather Holcroft is not at all what he appears to be.

Duke of a Gilded Age

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.

Ruse & Romance (Book One of the Beaucroft Girls Series)

Unjustly labeled a flirt, Kitty Beaucroft is in need of a fiancé. Lord Philip Butler’s father wants him to settle down before he can become a landowner. Kitty and Philip enter into a temporary engagement as a means to an end. Unfortunately, someone knows the truth and is determined to expose them. Will the ruse turn into a romance before it’s too late?

The Ice Captain’s Daughter

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.

A Gift for Fiona

With one sister married and another soon to be engaged, Fiona Robinson worries she’ll be on the shelf. She pins her hopes on a handsome viscount, but his unexpected 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.

Larken (Book One of the Graceling Hall Series)

The sole survivor of a train accident, young Larken Burke is dubbed the Miracle Orphan. Four years later, however, her life is far from fortunate.

Unfortunately, his aloof manner proves difficult to bear.
