Make Believe Bride will be out March 24!

make believe bride

This is Book 3 in the Marriage by Fate Series. (The Reclusive Earl is Book 1. Married In Haste is Book 2.)

This is Lady Stacey and Lord Whitney’s romance. Those were both very minor characters in previous books. I briefly mentioned Lord Whitney in Married In Haste. Lady Stacey has popped up in several Regencies (The Viscount’s Runaway Bride, The Rake’s Vow, Taming The Viscountess, and Married In Haste). Lady Stacey is a mostly silent member of Ladies of Grace, and in this book, I go more into detail on why she’s a wallflower type of personality.

In this book, Lord Whitney and Lady Stacey strike up a deal where they pretend to be betrothed. Lord Whitney’s purpose in doing this is so that he can find a place to belong in White’s, and Lady Stacey hopes for safe passage for her and her mother to escape London. I won’t say any more than that because I don’t want to spoil the book.

The book is on pre-order at these retailers if you’d like to reserve your copy today.

The Marriage Contract is finished!

The Marriage Contract new ebook cover

Pre-order today!

I’m happy to say I finished this one and sent it off to my wonderful editing team! This is Mr. Stephen’s Bachman’s book. I introduced Stephen in The Rake’s Vow, and I brought him back in Married In Haste. At the end of that book, he has to marry Lady Eloise.

The Marriage Contract takes place five years after Married In Haste, and by this time Lady Eloise is dead. So Lady Eloise won’t be the heroine of this book. But I am going to redeem Stephen.

This is Book 1 in the Marriage by Fairytale Series. This one is loosely based off of Beauty and the Beast. Since Stephen’s disfigured and wears a mask, he’s the “Beast”. The widowed pregnant lady he marries is “Beauty”.

I’m on Chapter 2 of The Perfect Wife

Pre-order now!

This is Book 3 in the Misled Mail Order Brides Series. (The Bride Price is Book 1. The Rejected Groom is Book 2.)

In order to concentrate on getting Make Believe Bride and The Marriage Contract done, I had to put this one on hold. I’m back into it now, though. The estimated month for this is June or July.

This is Mark Larson’s story. Mark married Natalie, who grew up on a farm. She doesn’t know the first thing about impressing the wives of Mark’s wealthy clients, and because of that, she’ll be in over her head when she starts meeting them. I’ll be bringing Velma in a lot for this book since Velma will help Natalie adjust to her new life.  It won’t be all roses, of course. There would be no story if everything went smoothly. But, I promise there will be a happy ending.

I started The Perfect Duke today

This is Book 4 in the Marriage by Fate Series. It follows Make Believe Bride, and this is Miss Webb’s story. In a nutshell, Miss Webb strikes up an arrangement with the Duke of Ravenshire for marriage. Since the Ton is impressed with him, she hopes to get Ladies of Grace in good standing, and since he needs money, she’ll provide a nice dowry. So this starts out as a marriage of convenience thing.

I plan to start One Enchanted Evening next week

This is going to be Book 2 in the Marriage by Fairytale Series. It follows The Marriage Contract. This one is going to be loosely based off of Cinderella.

Well, that’s about it for now. I hope everyone has a great March!
