Happy April! I hope it’s getting warmer where you live (unless it’s someplace in the southern hemisphere, of course). Thank you so much for taking the time out of your busy life to read my news.
The Unexpected Duchess hits shelves on 4/29!
First for the best news! The Unexpected Duchess got a 4.5 star TOP PICK! rating from RT Book Reviews magazine AND it just so happens to be gracing the cover of the May edition with an article about me inside! How exciting is that? You can subscribe online or pick up a copy in a bookstore including Barnes & Noble. RT calls The Unexpected Duchess, “Smart, witty, sassy and utterly delightful!” and Publisher’s Weekly calls it, “a charming take on Cyrano de Bergerac.” It also received a Booklist STARRED review and a Kirkus Reviews STARRED review!

Look at THESE pretty covers!
