A very happy book release day and congratulations to Samantha Grace, whose latest Rival Rogues Regency romance, THE BEST OF BOTH ROGUES, is out today.
The worst thing Mr. Benjamin Hillary ever did was leave his bride-to-be on their wedding day. The hardest thing he will ever have to do is watch her marry another man.
After two long years abroad, Ben finds Eve every bit as captivating as she was the first time he saw her, and he vows to set things right.
Lady Eve Thorne has a new man in her life, and Ben is nothing but trouble. She is no longer a starry-eyed young woman, and now that he’s back, he can go hang for all she cares. At least that’s what she keeps telling herself…
You’ll find THE BEST OF BOTH ROGUES at your favorite book retailer in paper or digital format.
Happy book release day to Samantha Grace, whose second Rival Rogues romance, IN BED WITH A ROGUE, hits stores today!
He’s the Talk of the Town
The whole town is tittering about Baron Sebastian Thorne having been jilted at the altar. Every move he makes ends up in the gossip columns. Tired of being the butt of everyone’s jokes, Sebastian vows to restore his family’s reputation no matter what it takes.
She’s the Toast of the Ton
Feted by the crème of society, the beautiful widow Lady Prestwick is a vision of all that is proper. But Helena is no angel, and when Sebastian uncovers her dark secret, he’s quick to press his advantage. In order to keep her hard-won good name, Helen will have to make a deal with the devil. But she’s got some tricks up her sleeves to keep this notorious rogue on his toes…
Plus, Samantha’s throwing a Facebook Party today, Samantha Grace’s Soiree, until 10pm ET. She’ll be hosting guest authors, posting teasers and Q&As, and giving out fun prizes, so be sure to drop by and say hello!
Big congratulations to Samantha Grace, whose latest book, ONE ROGUE TOO MANY — the first in her new Rival Rogues Regency series — hits stores today! This fun, romantic, sexy title received a starred review from Publishers Weekly. Be sure to check it out! (Seems like they might have a rogue to spare…)
From the Betting Book at Brook’s Gentleman’s Club:
Wager: £2,000 that Lord Ellis will throw the first punch when he discovers Lord Throne is wooing a certain duke’s sister.
All Bets Are Off When the Game is Love
Lady Gabrielle is thrilled when Anthony Keaton, earl of Ellis, asks for her hand in marriage. She’s not so pleased when he then leaves the country and four months pass without a word. Clearly, the scoundrel has changed his mind and is too cowardly to tell her. There’s nothing to do but go back on the marriage mart…
When Anthony returns to town and finds his ultimate rival has set sights on Gabby, his continual battle of one-upmanship with Sebastian Thorne ceases to be a game. Anthony is determined to win back the woman who holds his heart — but he’s not expecting Gabby herself to up the stakes…
A very happy book release day to Samantha Grace, whose latest sexy Regency romance, LADY VIVIAN DEFIES A DUKE, hits stores today.
The Naked Truth
Lady Vivian Worth knows perfectly well how to behave like a lady. But observing proper manners when there’s no one around to impress is just silly. Why shouldn’t she strip down to her chemise for a swim? When her betrothed arrives to finally meet her, Vivi will act every inch the lady — demure, polite, compliant. Everything her brother has promised the man. But until then, she’s going to enjoy her freedom…
A Revealing Discovery
Luke Forest, the newly named Duke of Foxhaven, wants nothing to do with his inheritance — or the bride that comes with it. He wants adventure and excitement, like the enchanting water nymph he’s just stumbled across. When he discovers the skinny-dipping minx is his intended, he reconsiders his plan to find Lady Vivian another husband. Because the idea of this vivacious woman in the arms of another man might be enough to drive him insane — or to the altar.
Be sure to check out this fun, romantic romp. Big congrats again to Samantha Grace!
A very happy book release day to Samantha Grace, whose latest Regency romance, MISS LAVIGNE’S LITTLE WHITE LIE, hits shelves today.
A Scoundrel Drives a Hard Bargain…
Spirited and determined to protect her young brother at any cost, Lisette Lavigne is desperate to flee New Orleans. There’s only one ship sailing to England, though, and the rakish Captain Daniel Hillary will only allow Lisette’s family aboard for a very steep price…
But a Lady Always Gets the Upper Hand…
Daniel prides himself on running a tight ship, and he knows a lady will be nothing but trouble on a long voyage. Yet he can’t help but break his own ironclad rules when Lisette persuades him that being gentlemanly just this once is his wisest course of action…
A very happy book day to Samantha Grace, whose latest Regency romance, LADY AMELIA’S MESS AND A HALF, hits stores today.
JAKE BROKE HER HEART BY LEAVING HER AFTER SHARING A PASSIONATE KISS.
LADY AMELIA BROKE HIS BY MARRYING HIS BEST FRIEND.
When she returns to town a widow—pursued by an infamous rake, Jake’s debauched brother, and just maybe by Jake himself—Lady Amelia will have a mess and a half on her hands.
A sparkling romp through the ton, Lady Amelia’s Mess and a Half delivers a witty Regency romance in which misunderstandings abound, reputations are put on the line, and the only thing more exciting than a scandal is true love.
A big congratulations to Samantha!
A very happy book release day to two of my clients. First up, we have Shannon K. Butcher‘s fabulous BOUND BY VENGEANCE, an e-special release in her Sentinel series. This novella is available in various electronic formats only, and takes place shortly before DYING WISH, the next novel in the series, which hits stores in March.
The guilt that Defender Dakota Kacey feels about her brother’s death is all-consuming, making her determined to find and kill the demon who murdered him. But the leader of the Defenders is worried about what Dakota is capable of, and calls in Liam Lann to keep an eye on her. Dakota knows what kind of power a Theronai like Liam possesses, and agrees to bind herself to him if he’ll help her exact vengeance. But a bond to a Theronai is not a decision to make lightly, and as the search for the killer intensifies, Dakota will have to learn to trust Liam completely, or risk losing everything.
Big congrats to Shannon!
Next up is a book I’ve mentioned here before: MISS HILLARY SCHOOLS A SCOUNDREL by Samantha Grace. This fun Regency romance is Samantha’s debut novel, and has already garnered some lovely reviews, including a starred review from Publishers Weekly.
HE’LL NEVER SETTLE FOR ONE WOMAN… Debonair bachelor Lord Andrew Forest lives for pleasure and offers no apologies. But he receives a dose of his own medicine when his family’s entrancing houseguest beds him, then disappears without so much as a by-your-leave. He’d like to teach the little vixen a thing or two about how to love and man…if he can find her..
AND SHE WON’T SETTLE FOR HEARTBREAK… After the dashing man of her dreams is revealed as a lying scoundrel, heiress Lana Hilary is ready to seek a match with a respectable gentleman-if only they weren’t so dreadfully boring. Unable to rein in her bold nature for long, Lana flirts with trouble and finds herself entangled with exactly the type of man she’s vowed to avoid.
Big congrats to Samantha, as well!
