May News: Hip, Hip, Hooray! The Unlikely Lady is Here!

Happy May! The Unlikely Lady is Here! The Unlikely Lady is Here!

I’m absolutely THRILLED to announce the 5/5/15 release of The Unlikely Lady! Finally! Jane and Garrett’s story! It’s the third book in my Playful Brides series and I know many readers have been eagerly awaiting Jane and Garrett’s story since they both walked on the page in The Unexpected Duchess.

UnlikelyLady_servercoverThe Unlikely Lady has gotten some terrific reviews including Publisher’s Weekly saying, “Fans and newcomers alike will enjoy this installment, rich with fully developed characters and a plethora of witty banter.”

Kirkus Reviews says, “… an entertaining renewal of a classic plotline and well worth reading,” and RT Book Reviews says, “quick, lively entertainment at its best.”

And check out these great review from Smexy Books and Fresh Fiction!

But perhaps my favorite review is from Amanda R. on GoodReads who wrote, “This book was hot and funny!” She gave it 5 stars! Thank you, Amanda!

I also want to thank all of the advance readers who’ve given The Unlikely Lady such fantastic reviews on GoodReads. I’m so happy to know how much you’re enjoying the story.

If you’d like to read the first chapter, it’s here. Or if you’d like to go ahead and snap up your copy, thank you so much and here are the links…

Coming Soon: The Duke and Duchess Trap

Keep an eye out in the upcoming weeks for the first novella in my new Hollister series. It’s called The Duke and Duchess Trap and it’s a super fun story about twelve-year-old twins who find each other at boarding school and make a plan to get their estranged parents back together. I’ll be sharing the GORGEOUS cover very soon!

Happy May! And as always, thank you for reading my latest news!
