The Perfect Duke (Marriage by Fate: Book 4) is now out!
Here’s the description:
Nicholas Lidgate, the Duke of Ravenshire, needs to marry a lady who comes from a wealthy family. His father left a large sum of debt, and if he doesn’t pay it off, he’ll be sent to debtor’s prison. He has two very important advantages. One, he is a prominent member of the Ton. Two, no one knows his secret. If he can secure a marriage to a lady from a wealthy family, all of his problems will be over.
Or at least that’s what he thinks…
He proposes to Miss Tara Webb because her dowry will be enough to pay the debts and leave him with a comfortable lifestyle. He doesn’t mind the fact that she only agrees to the marriage because her connection to him will bring her social group back in good standing. A marriage of convenience suits him just fine.
What he does mind, however, is the fact that her brother turns out to be one of his father’s debtors, and her brother isn’t one to play fair. Also, the more Nicholas gets to know Tara, the more he ends up falling in love with her.
And her brother will use that to his advantage.
Here’s where you can find it:
The Perfect Wife (Misled Mail Order Brides: Book 3)
will be out August 25!
I finally got this up on all the retailers. This one is Mark Larson’s romance.
You can reserve your copy now, or wait until it’s out. I’ll make sure to post links in next month’s newsletter in case you need to wait.
One Enchanted Evening (Marriage by Fairytale Series: Book 2) should be done soon
I’m coming to the end of this one as we speak. I am hoping to have it done and off to my wonderful editing team by September 1st. I was hoping to have this out in September, but with the way things have gone, it looks like it won’t be out until October. And that’s fine. The main thing is that this book is the very best it can be.
The next three books are pretty much hovering in the 10,000-20,000 range. I’m really not sure which order these will be out. (My average book length is 50,000 to 70,000 words when it’s done.)
So I’m listing them in no particular order…
The Imperfect Husband is Annabelle Larson’s romance
And this is going to have a humorous side to it. I’m just over 14,000 words in this one. I’d like to have this one out in January or February.
I’m only 7,000 words into Kidnapping the Viscount
This one is turning into a delightfully funny romance. The hero really isn’t all that upset about being kidnapped. 😉 In fact, the hero might give her the idea to kidnap him. I don’t know for sure yet since I haven’t gotten to that part of the book yet.
I’m a little over 13,000 words into Shane’s Deal
This one isn’t on pre-order yet, but this will conclude the Montana Collection series. I know some of you have been waiting for this one for a long time. I appreciate your patience. I hope it’ll be worth it.
So anyway, you can see how close the word counts are for the three books. I’ll have to see how things play out. My goal is to get them all out before March 15. 🙂
Before I forget, I need to address the Wyoming Series. I had to drop it. Too many complications came up. So count The Outlaw’s Bride and The Rancher’s Wife off the list of things I’ll be doing.
Hope everyone has a great August!
