Expecting Her Counterfeit Husband to be ready in August!

I’m having a lot of fun with this book.  It’s not a comedy, but I love the characters and the plot.  I’m about 70% of the way through the first draft (chapter 17).  I hope to be done with the first draft in two weeks (*fingers crossed*), and I’d love to have it out around August 1.  We’ll see how things go.  Like I said, *fingers crossed*.  😀

Changed Mitch’s Win to Clayton’s Win

After careful consideration, I decided to make Mitch’s Win a Nebraska book.  I was originally going to start a new series (the Montana series), but then I thought it would be better to make this a Nebraska book.  So I’m going back and rewriting portions of it so I can fit it into the Nebraska Collection.  I introduced Clayton in Isaac’s Decision.  He’s one of Isaac Larson’s friends, and in this book, we’ll see Isaac and Emily to get an update on how they’re doing.  We’ll also see Lizzie, Emily’s little sister who is hoping to marry Greg Wilson (so Patty’s Gamble will be changed to Lizzie’s Gamble).

Bound by Honor, Bound by Love

I am still working on this, and I think I found out the missing link to connect where I’m at now to the end of the book.  I don’t want to lose momentum because the first half of the book is strong.  I want to keep it going that way.  😀

I don’t think I can get this out this summer, but I might be able to get it out before the end of the year.  I just don’t want to rush the ending or make it less than it should be.  I’ll keep giving updates on my progress so you know where I’m at in the book.

I started A Most Unsuitable Husband

Those of you who read The Earl’s Inconvenient Wife will remember the gentleman who gave Nate, the hero, a book on pleasing a lady.  Well, this gentleman is Lord Edon, and in this is his romance.

This is my tentative description of this book:

Ethan Silverton, the Lord of Edon, has been called many things.  Scoundrel, rake, reprobate, unbelievably lucky, deceitful… But he’s never been called a husband…until now.

Ethan is very content with his life.  He’s carefully sculpted it so that everyone thinks he’s a notorious rake.  For years, he’s worked hard to build his reputation to secure his place as the most undesirable bachelor in London.  And it’s worked.  No decent lady will have him.

But one simple error in judgment has just sealed his fate.  His intention was to dissuade a horrid mother from matching him up with her equally horrid daughter.  Seeing no one but Lady Catherine without a dance partner, he tells a lie.  He approaches Lady Catherine as if they are betrothed, and the ploy works.  The horrid mother and her daughter abandon their pursuit of him.

Except Ethan’s mother spies his ploy and is so relieved that she’s found a way to marry him to a reputable young lady that she tells everyone of their engagement.  To his horror, word spreads and it’s his duty to see the lie through.  This is the worst thing that can happen, and no one but his mother is happy about it.  Not Lady Catherine.  Not her doting father.  Not even Ethan.  But his mother is sure it’ll all work out…eventually.
