Cover Reveal (and Holiday Giveaway!) for MY SCOT, MY SURRENDER!

December 13, 2017 • By

Drumroll please…we would like to share the smoldering new cover for the last book in the Lords of Essex series: My Scot, My Surrender, out January 29, 2018! We are so happy with it! What’s not to love about a brawny Highlander in a kilt swinging a sword? *swoon*

What do you guys think?

Be sure to enter our romance holiday giveaway below for a chance to win a signed paperback prize pack of the first three books in the series as well as a chance to win an e-ARC of My Scot, My Surrender!

One of them will have to give up everything.

Brandt Montgomery Pierce is a bastard—and proud of it. Raised by the Duke of Bradburne, Brandt enjoys an uncommon life of privilege. Despite the mystery surrounding his birth, he has wealth and opportunity, and wants nothing more. Especially not a wife.

Lady Sorcha Maclaren, the fiery and scarred daughter of Laird Maclaren, the Duke of Dunrannoch, is desperate to avoid marriage to a loathsome marquess at any cost…even if it means risking a kiss with a handsome stranger at a Scottish border festival.

But after an innocent kiss turns into a scandalously public embrace, Sorcha and Brandt get more than they bargained for—a swift trip to the altar. When danger chases them into the Highlands, and deceit threatens to tear them apart, their only hope will be to surrender…to each other.

Doesn’t it look gorgeous with the rest of the series?

MY HELLION, MY HEART cover reveal and giveaway!

July 6, 2017 • By

Amalie and I are so excited to reveal our spectacular new cover for MY HELLION, MY HEART, the third book in the Lords Of Essex series!!

Steamy, sassy, and so much FUN! My Hellion, My Heart kept me guessing and swooning until the last page—I never wanted it to end. This is Regency Romance at its best, my friends. ~ Rachel Harris, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of The Nanny Arrangement.

He fought battles for crown and country. She waged war for his heart.

Lord Henry Radcliffe, the scarred but sinfully sexy Earl of Langlevit, is a beast. The only way Henry can exorcise the demons of his war-ravaged past is through intense physicality. In and out of bed. An endeavor that has no shortage of willing participants.

Intent on scandalizing London, Princess Irina Volkonsky is a hellion and every gentleman’s deepest desire…except for one. Irina knows better than to provoke the wickedly forbidding earl, but she will stop at nothing short of ruination to win the heart of the only man she’s ever loved.

But when one scandalous kiss makes dangerous passions ignite, neither of them can fight their sizzling attraction. When a sinister plot emerges to threaten them both, they will have to fight one last battle, this time for the ultimate prize…love.

What do you guys think???

To celebrate, we’re doing a giveaway for a signed paperback set of books 1 & 2 in the Lords of Essex series!

History with wine…and Rufus Sewell

February 3, 2017 • By

Hello Readers!

Considering I write historical romance, it’s probably no surprise that I’ve been watching the new Masterpiece Theatre show, VICTORIA. Have you? The first season aired across the pond last year, leaving us Americans high and dry, forcing us to wait until 2017. As if I already didn’t want to be British enough, right? Victoria just looked so decadent and romantic, and it’s exactly the kind of slow burn I love. For the last few Sunday nights, I’ve been getting my girls in bed, pouring a glass of wine, and hopping on the couch, all before 9 p.m.


So can we talk about Lord Melbourne? (Warning! SPOILERS ahead!)

I had to research the real Lord M and his relationship to the young queen because I was just so in love with the idea of them hitting it off, and then fighting the rules and expectations of their stations, and maybe even more so, a May-December romance. I’m not going to lie – I was hoping for them to at least kiss.



The real Lord Melbourne was definitely old enough to be Victoria’s grandfather. Or at least father. And while he had that prim and jovial grandfather look going on…

he wasn’t nearly as I’m-going-to-destroy-your-heart-handsome as Rufus Sewell…

But apparently he did have a rather scandalous marriage and suffered the death of a child. The first two episodes drew me in with the setting, the costumes, the intrigue, Victoria’s bold attitude, and especially the romantic tension between Lord M. and Victoria. So when Lord Albert showed up I automatically didn’t like him. I mean, I know it’s historically accurate and everything, but could he, I don’t know, maybe hold his head up a little higher (what’s with all the hunching over?), push his hair out of his eyes, and stop being such a wet blanket?

I can see what the writers for the show are doing, though. To compete with the attraction Victoria and Lord M have, they needed to do something special with Albert. The friction between him and Victoria is well done, and I especially like how his unflappable attitude and the little digs he takes at her behavior shine some light on her flaws. While Lord M adores her, Albert isn’t going to let her off the hook so easily.

Still, my heart was breaking for Lord M in the last episode (ep.4), when Victoria had seemed to be completely over him. Then again, the real Lord M never remarried, which is kind of in line with this Lord M’s reluctance to accept Victoria when she all but proposed to him.

Alas, we all know Queen Victoria and Prince Albert’s marriage was a love match, and that when he died she mourned him for the rest of her life. So I suppose there is no room for Lord M after all!

If you haven’t started watching VICTORIA yet (and haven’t been ruined by all the spoilers), check it out on Masterpiece!

Come Get Your Rogue!

November 23, 2016 • By

It’s here! It’s here! At long last, MY ROGUE, MY RUIN is out in the world.


Amalie and I have been looking forward to this day for a while now. We had so much fun writing about Lord Hawksfield and Lady Briannon, and we sincerely hope you have fun reading their story! Get your copy here!

A little about the book:

He stole their riches, she stole his heart

The Marquess of Hawksfield’s lineage is impeccable and his title coveted, but Archer Croft is as far from his indulgent peers as he can get. His loathing for the beau monde has driven him to don a secret identity and risk everything in order to steal their riches and distribute them to the less fortunate.

Lady Briannon Findlay embraces her encounter with the Masked Marauder, a gentleman thief waylaying carriages from London to Essex. The marauder has stirred Brynn’s craving for adventure, and she discovers an attraction deeper than the charming thief’s mask.

Brynn is a revelation, matching Archer in intelligence, wit, and passion. Stubborn and sensuous in equal measure, she astonishes him at every turn, but when someone sinister impersonates Archer’s secret personality, and a murder is committed, Archer begins to think he doesn’t stand a fighting chance without her.

Writing a book with another author is so different than sitting down to write one alone. When we started out, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I remember hoping it would work out, and now that we have the next two books in the series completed, I have to say it REALLY did. I love writing historical romance with Amalie, and we have plans for many more in the future.

If you read MY ROGUE, MY RUIN — and I hope you do! — please consider leaving a review somewhere like Amazon and Goodreads. One line or one paragraph, it doesn’t matter. Just let us know what you thought!

AND DON’T FORGET we’re hosting a Books and Baskets giveaway until Dec. 2! Click here for the Rafflecopter entry form. 

Thanks, readers! And I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.


It’s almost time to celebrate!

November 15, 2016 • By

Hello there, Readers,

November is upon us! Living in New Hampshire, November has always been a kind of “let down” month. It slides right in, all brown and dull and depressing after the brilliant colors of October have faded.

Sure, there’s Thanksgiving to look forward to – I’ve already unpacked my Joey Thanksgiving Pants.


But other than that one day of gluttonous, historically inaccurate feasting, and then the manic Black Friday spending sprees, I’ve never had much in November to look forward to.

Until this year.

Because THIS YEAR, Amalie and I have our first historical romance novel releasing just a few days before Thanksgiving, on November 21!


We’re hoping readers will settle in after they’ve finished their Thanksgiving pie and relax with our Regency-set spin on the legend of Robin Hood. Break out those cozy socks, get yourself a glass of wine or a cup of tea, and jump right in.

Don’t forget, you can pre-order MY ROGUE, MY RUIN now, and enter to win a book of your choice from the Book Depository. We’ll randomly choose two winners on Dec. 2, 2016.

Thanks, dear readers!
