Brazen Angel is Free

As of this post, you will find the ebook of Brazen Angel free. Everywhere. Took some doing, but given that this is Brazen Angel’s 20th anniversary, I thought it would be fun to give back some love.

After all this book, and all of you, started all of this.

The cool part of Brazen Angel has as much to do about the back story of how it was published, as it does the adventures of Sophia and Giles. Brazen AngelBut seriously, have your read, My Favorite Hero? If not, go ahead and click on it. Read the story and then … Read more »

Who Said It Answered

So who said the following?

“A few minutes ago you couldn’t wait to leave and now you want to stay?”
“That was before I killed a man,” she offered, coming up with the only excuse she could other than the truth.
“You didn’t kill anyone. You only winged him.”
“Are you sure?”
“Yes.”
She glanced back up the stairs, where even now a tide of servants was rushing to the aid of their master. “I think his injury will be grave, for I’ve never missed before.”

That just happens to be Olivia SuttonOnce Tempted and Robert Danvers in Once Tempted.… Read more »

Who Said It? Ups the Game

You all have had it way too easy. Time to up the
Who Said It? game.

“…and now that he is inclined to marry—“
“I don’t think the earl has any intention of—”
“Of course he intends to marry. He made his bow at Almack’s.”
Which of course every matron in London knew was code for: I wish to marry your daughter immediately.

Did You Guess Who Said It?

So who said the following:

“You lied,” she said, going toe-to-toe with the man before her. “You told me he still loved me, wanted me.” She glanced over her shoulder and shuddered at the sight of him. “What he wants is a good bath and his ration of rum tossed overboard.”

This one, at least to me, was pretty easy and obvious. It has to be Lady Philippa, Memoirs of a Scandalous Red Dressor as I always call her, Pippin, talking about her beloved Dash, after finding him all those years later. I absolutely adore this book, Memoirs of a Scandalous Red Dress, because … Read more »

Another Round of Who Said It?

This one is probably pretty easy for you diehard fans, but I just love these lines. So,
Who Said It?

“You lied,” she said, going toe-to-toe with the man before her. “You told me he still loved me, wanted me.” She glanced over her shoulder and shuddered at the sight of him. “What he wants is a good bath and his ration of rum tossed overboard.”

Is it:
1) Olivia Sutton from Once Tempted
2) Lady Diana from Stealing the Bride
3) Lady Philippa from Memoirs of a Scandalous Red Dress

Make your best guess and I’ll post the answer … Read more »

Who Said It?

I feel like this week I have to up my game, because you guys are rocking this #ThrowbackThursday challenge. I’ve dug deep this week and now it is up to you to figure out:
Who Said It?

“Have you any idea of the danger you could find here? Of the nature of men?”
She plucked herself free. “I’m well aware of the nature of men. I wouldn’t be here if I wasn’t.”

Is it:
1) Lady Arabella from Mad About the Major
2) Roselie Stratton from Six Impossible Things
3) Georgie from One Night of Passion

Make your best guess … Read more »

So, Who Said It?

Continuing my #ThrowbackThursday challenge, I’ve pulled another line or two out of one of my books, and now I’m asking you:
Who Said It?

“I disagree,” she said, drawing shocked looks from nearly everyone at the table. “My father was afraid of the company one finds in those schools. It was his belief that the polish that you think so highly of, Miss Cottwell, gives a young lady a false sense of pride and superiority that men find off putting. Would you say that was your experience?”

Is it:
1) Maureen Hawthorne from Brazen Temptress
2) Tally Langley from Confessions Read more »

And the Answer Is . . .

So who said the following:

“What will the neighbors think if you toss me out into the streets in the middle of the night?” She shook at his grasp. “I won’t go quietly.”

Something About Emmaline
Well, it had to be that illustrious con artist disguised as the baron’s fictional wife, Emmaline from Something About Emmaline. One of my favorites. You can read the excerpt here, or order your own copy for a fun #Fridayreads.… Read more »

Stealing the Bride

Countdown to 20

I failed#20thAvonRomance Countdown(3) to mention in my last post, (about my 3rd Avon Romance, One Night of Passion) that one of my favorite heroes of all time came to life while writing Colin and Georgie’s story. And if you’ve read these books you know I am talking about Temple. Or as he is formally known, the Marquis of Templeton.

I’ll never forget that moment. I had written the scene with Colin Danvers being tossed out on his ear by his betrothed, Lady Diana (who has just called off their wedding) and Colin is joined by his cousin, … Read more »

TBT: Love Letters from a Duke

People always say this is one of their favorites–with Felicity Langley being one of my most beloved heroines. Yet her story would not have been told without some help. So on this Throwback Thursday, let me introduce you to some of the books that helped me write Love Letters from a Duke:

LoveLettersFromADukeThe London Encyclopedia, ed. by Ben Weinreb and Christopher Hibbert. This is one of my favorite books to have within reach while I am writing a book set in London.
