June News: What I’m Writing

Happy June! 

This month, I’d thought I’d share with you a bit about what I’m writing. There’s no official title yet but I’m working on Cade Cavendish’s book which I pitched to my editor as, “The Scarlet Pimpernel meets Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, in which a French lady’s maid and a spy who is a master of disguise foil a plot to bring Napoleon back from St. Helena while uncovering secrets about each other and falling in love.” What do you think? I’m having the *best* time writing it! It’ll be out Spring 2017!

What (Else) I’m Up To…

I just finished editing The Legendary Lord which is Lord Christian Berkeley’s story and comes out November 1, 2016. I’m happy to announce that I’ll be sharing chapter one on my website very soon!

Have a fantastic June (my birthday month!) and thank you for reading my latest news!

May News: The Untamed Earl Arrives!

Happy May! 

This month, I’m thrilled to announce the release of  The Untamed Earl! It releases on Tuesday, 5/3/2Untamed Earl Burstebook White016. It’s a Regency retelling of The Taming of the Shrew, only this time the “shrew” is a rogue. (wink)

It’s gotten great reviews including one of my favorites from RT Book Reviews saying, “Bowman delights with a humorous tale that could come straight out of a Shakespearean play. The charming characters are well developed, their cock-eyed motivations are clear and the plot moves quickly, wrapping readers in an enchanting romance.”
