Other Works in Progress

(Please note: this is a tentative list)

A Most Unsuitable Earl

I modified this title from A Most Unsuitable Husband, so if you wonder what happened to A Most Unsuitable Husband, I just changed the title.  😀

I’m currently closing around the halfway point of the book, and I’m happy with the humor in it.  This is definitely a romantic comedy.   Ethan has married Catherine, and he’s facing a very disgruntled father-in-law while his mother is overjoyed.  In case you haven’t read the sample scene and character interview on my other blog, here they are:

Sample Scene: How to Trap an Earl Into Marriage

Character Interview: Three Irate Characters and One Who’s Happy About the Marriage

Mitch’s Win

I don’t blame anyone who wants to bop me over the head for, once again, changing the title or the collection I’m putting this in.  I thought long and hard about what I wanted to do with this book.  There was a huge internal debate about whether to make a new series or stick only with the Nebraska Romance Collection for historical westerns.  After a lot (and I mean a lot) of soul searching, I decided this book is better off in a new collection.  Since I don’t necessarily write books in chronological order, I don’t want to call any books but the Native American Romance Series a “series.” So we’ll just say Mitch’s Win is the first book I’m writing in the Montana Romance Collection.

I am halfway into this book, and things are progressing nicely.  😀

Here’s the updated description (in case you haven’t read it yet):

When Mitch Grady goes to a saloon to take his wayward brother home, he finds that his brother’s horse isn’t the only thing being offered in a poker game.  Heather Curtiss’ brother has bet her as well.  Vowing an innocent woman won’t be forced to give up her virtue to a disreputable gambler, Mitch joins in the game of poker, and with luck, he wins and frees Heather.

Heather sees this as her chance to get away from her brother and appeals to Mitch’s kindness to marry her, offering to help him care for his ailing mother and the two children under his roof.  He agrees, and they become husband and wife.  But Heather’s brother hasn’t gone away.  And Mitch might find that winning her is going to take more than a poker game.

I’ll end the newsletter here so it doesn’t get too long.

I hope everyone has a great October!
