Continuity Book Gets Title!

Wednesday, April 29th, 2009

Though Gabe would concede to being a smuggler, Honoria would probably point out that, having been disgraced, she’s no longer eligible for Society Bride status.  But her former position as a leader of the ton certainly plays a key role in the dance of attraction that fires Gabe with the need to uncover who set up the ruin of the woman he so admires…and is most reluctantly coming to love.

The complete listing of authors and titles:
Book 1       The Lord and the Wayward Waif by Louise Allen
Book 2       Paying the Virgin’s Price by Christine Merrill
Book 3       The Smuggler and the Society Bride by Julia Justiss
Book 4       Claiming the Forbidden Mistress by Gayle Wilson
Book 5       The Viscount and the Virgin by Annie Burrows
Book 6       Unlacing the Innocent Miss by Margaret McPhee
Book 7       The Officer and the Proper Lady by Louise Allen
Book 8       Taken By the Wicked Rake by Christine Merrill

Good News on Amazon UK

Monday, April 27th, 2009

Coming back from a weekend at UT Austin (where my daughter showed her collection in the senior design spring fashion show “Luminous”—yeah, Catherine!) I found in the mail a little package that contained copies of a Mills & Boone edition of my July 2008 North American release, A MOST UNCONVENTIONAL MATCH.  So today I checked Amazon UK to see if I could discover what the UK the release date will be.

Nothing on the site about MATCH—but I learned that THE WEDDING GAMBLE, my first book, will be out in a hardcover library edition in July 2009.  The November 2008 Christmas collection ONE CANDLELIT CHRISTMAS with novellas by me, Terri Brisbin and Annie Burroughs, will be released in October 2009 as REGENCY CANDLELIT CHRISTMAS.  No covers yet, but I’ll post them as I get them to my UK Readers page.

Meanwhile, I continue to wonder when MATCH will make its UK appearance.  Hmmm…maybe I should e-mail my editor?



Continuity Titled!

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2009

The series that the 6 authors involved have been calling “The Silken Rope Scandals” now has an official title:  Regency Silk and Scandal.  Of course, we’re months away from having titles for each of the 8 books in the series, but the authors did brainstorm several lists (one all-heroine, one all-hero, one hero-and-heroine) for Marketing.  Although we were given pretty much complete freedom on coming up with the overall and individual stories, I suspect Marketing will closely guard their right to name them.  Watch this space for developments…



Continuity Book Completed!

Tuesday, April 21st, 2009

The turn-around time from submitting the manuscript to revision request to sending the revised book back was the shortest in my career–barely 3 weeks.  Usually in that length of time I’d still be chewing my nails, wondering what my editor thinks of the story and nervously awaiting her response.  I expect the exceptional speed has something to do with the fact that this is book 3 of the series and books 1 and 2 were due, and read, in December.

Whatever the reason, I was relieved that my editor was as pleased as I am with this story of earl’s daughter Lady Honoria Carlow, who flees London after a scandalous disgrace to take refuge with her aunt in Cornwall and try to figure out who engineered her ruin…and why.  Enter handsome Irishman Gabe Hawksworth, known locally as “the Hawk,” currently captaining a smuggling vessel for the army friend who saved his life, and suddenly Honoria finds that exile to the rugged Cornish coast seems much more appealing.

Though her aristocratic family would be appalled at her attraction to a low-born free trader, there’s something about the well-spoken Gabe that calls out to the free-spirited Honoria, even as Gabe wonders about the story behind the  unexpected appearance of this mysterious beauty.  Until an attraction that should never have been becomes a compulsion too strong for either of them to resist…
