New Cover for RUMER HAS IT

We all need a change from time to time! My historical romance, Rumer Has It , now has a new cover. I think Jocelyn’s cheeky smile hints at the fun in the story.

Will the war between the sexes remain civil?

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.

Rumer Has It is a sweet historical romance set in 1910 Charleston.

Available at Amazon, Google Play, or at this universal book link HERE. (Please note that because the cover is new, however, it may take the distributor time to upload the new file to all the retail outlets.)

Book Five of The Mannequin Series

UPDATE: The Substitute has a new e-book release date of April 5th, 2022.

The Substitute is getting ready to launch! The book is in pre-order right now, for an estimated release date of 4/19/22, but it will likely be published sooner. If you can’t wait, the paperback is available now.

Blurb: When Portia Coulter meets the mysterious Mr. X at a masquerade ball, she’s forbidden from deepening their acquaintance. As it turns out, however, the flirtation sets in motion a chain of events out of her control. Mr. X has no intention of letting her go that easily but his efforts to woo her may cost her everything.

Will fate be kind to a substitute mannequin or is Portia destined to live a loveless existence?

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?

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?
