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. I 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
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.
