#TBT: Mad About the Duke

This book, Mad About the Duke, is the story inspired my upcoming Bachelor Chronicles spin-off, Mad about the Major. Here is where the Duke of Parkerton finally meets his match.

But the wait for Parkerton’s story took some time. He first appeared at the end of This Rake of Mine, chastising his younger brother, Mad Jack Tremont, to get out of jail and go marry Miranda. I sort of fell in love Mad About the Dukewith him the moment he stepped on the page. He is so stuffy and ducal and proper. He just needed his life turned upside down.

Does anyone else sense a theme here? I just love taking a perfectly happy bachelor hero and turn his life inside out with the introduction of one of my madcap heroines. Elinor, Lady Standon isn’t exactly madcap (she’s actually a lot like Parkerton) but she is desperate to marry and she wants nothing less than a duke.

Mistaking Parkerton for a solicitor, she hires him on the spot to find her a likely candidate. And thus, Parkerton finds himself in the role of unwitting matchmaker. I loved putting Parkerton through the paces of falling in love and then actually admitting it.

Dukes just hate that!

Comment below and tell me what you are currently “mad” about (and by mad, I mean in a good way!) and one lucky commenter will win an autographed book from the Bachelor Chronicles series. Check back next Monday to see if you’ve won.

If you go on a complete reading binge this weekend, you might be able to finish the Bachelor Chronicles series by next Tuesday, when Arabella Tremont, escapes her ducal father and sets out to discover London on her own. You’ll learn why, like father like daughter, Arabella finds herself,  Mad About the Major.

But even if you can’t get them all finished, pre-order your copy of Mad About the Major before the release date of June 2nd to get the special price of $1.99. Otherwise you’ll just be mad at yourself for missing out. And not the good kind of mad. LOL.

#TBT: How I Met My Countess

Moving along to the next installment of my #TBT look the Bachelor Chronicles series (in advance of the June 2nd release of Mad About the Major), this week we are going to look at How I Met My Countess.

Opening up what I think of as the last third of the Bachelor Chronicles is a trio of books about the Widows Standon. The idea for the book came from Love Letters of a Duke, where the hero laments having these warring dowagers from the previous heirs driving him crazy. How I Met My CountessI wondered about these three and then came up with the idea that all three had married very young and not really all that willingly to these potential heirs who all up and died and left them fighting over dowager scraps.

Then along comes matchmaking Felicity with a fierce idea: make them live together in a rundown, awful London town house until their either:

A) Kill each other
or
B) Marry the first likely gentleman to come along and get off the Standon gravy train.

LOL. My Regency version of a reality show.

I opened the series with most unlikely of heroines, Lucy Ellyson, or as her father and family call her, Goosie. Well, Goosie is hard to describe–so I suggest you meet her, the same way the Earl of Clifton did, but letting her saunter and swagger into your heart! You can read the excerpt and discover a little bit about one of my favorite characters.

(And BTW, you also get to meet Malcolm, who was also friends with Mad Jack, from This Rake of Mine.)

Comment below and tell me yes or no if you have a nickname–especially one that makes you just cringe every time your family uses it. One lucky poster will win an autographed book from the Bachelor Chronicles series. Check back next Tuesday to see if you’ve won.

You still have a week to get all caught up on the Bachelor Chronicles series by June 2nd, when Arabella Tremont, escapes her ducal father and sets out to discover London on her own. Only what she discovers is that she’s Mad About the Major.
