The Demon Duke debuts June 6th, 2017 (not quite 6/6/6, but that’s because Damon Blackbourne, Duke of Malford, is not quite the demon everyone makes him out to be.
Here’s the blurb:
Behind every good man is a great secret.
Banished to Yorkshire as a boy for faults his father failed to beat out of him, Damon Blackbourne has no use for English society and had vowed never to return to his family’s estate at Thorne Hill, much less London. However, when his father and brother die in a freak carriage accident, it falls on Damon to take up the mantle of the Malford dukedom, and to introduce his sisters to London Society–his worst nightmare come to life.
He never planned on Lady Grace Mattersley. The beautiful debutante stirs him body and soul with her deep chocolate eyes and hesitant smiles. Until she stumbles across his dark secret.
Shy and bookish Grace much prefers solitude and reading to social just-about-anything. Her family may be pressuring her to take on the London Season to find herself a husband, but she has other ideas. Such as writing a novel of her own.
But she has no idea how to deal with the Duke of Malford.
Will she betray him to the world? Or will she be his saving Grace?
Why, yes, I AM getting a wee bit giddy (& nervous!) about A Scandalous Matter hitting readers’ Kindles and bookshelves on Wednesday, July 6th.
I hope you adore Amara and Matthew’s story. These two touch my heart, because I definitely know what it’s like to feel as if I don’t fit in (heck, doesn’t everyone feel that way at some time or another?).
Here’s the blurb:
Independent, spirited Amara Mattersley may live under scandal’s shadow, but at least the nineteenth-century Regency society judging her is familiar. That’s all about to change when she finds herself in twenty-first-century Charlottesville, Virginia—and locking horns with one very befuddling, very male, UVA professor.
Computer science professor Matthew Goodson has no time for love—no time for anything, actually, but his quest for tenure and his obsession with the screen. The last thing he expects is to get side-swiped by this adorably odd British miss. Yet something in her calls to him, pulls at him, in a way unknown—and uncomfortable.
Can the past and the present blend together into a mutual future? Or will old wounds and new complications sabotage any chance at a twenty-first century happily ever after?
Squee! I’m hoping you’re excited about A Scandalous Matter, as well, and look forward to hearing what y’all think!
