One must never underestimate the consequence of a simple kiss…

Tall, dark, and brooding, the Viscount of Barnet stole Jane Milton’s heart the day she saw him astride his black horse in the woods. With her three seemingly perfect younger sisters now married, Jane might finally have a chance to win him over. When she learns of his upcoming trip to Brighton, she grasps at an opportunity to be a companion to an elderly woman there, in order to follow—er—accompany Lord Barnet to the seaside town.

Mr. Philip Honeyfield has suffered the dreaded misfortune of inheriting a title. Ungainly and shy, how can he perform well in the eye of society? To navigate his new role, Philip seeks advice from an unlikely source. When he is smitten by his grandmother’s new companion, Miss Jane Milton, his advisor offers one final piece of counsel: he must kiss her at the upcoming ball.

But a moonlit kiss can be catastrophic when witnessed by a cunning mother, a marriage can be inconvenient when forced, and a woman’s heart can be difficult to win when it belongs to another. Can an unexpected love conquer Jane’s resentment and Philip’s regret? Or will that simple kiss turn out to be his greatest misfortune of all?

This story was so much fun. I don’t think I’ve written characters that have been so vivid in my mind, or a plot that has come so quickly to my imagination. This story was begging to be told, and didn’t give me writer’s block like my stories have done. Ha 😉 That was a pleasant surprise!

So far this new series has four books, but who knows? Maybe there will be more. I love writing books that have characters in common. I love to revisit characters from past books and get to know new characters from different points of view. That’s what makes this series so much fun!

If you’ve already read A Convenient Engagement, who would you guess is our hero in book 2?

I’ll be announcing soon! But for now, enjoy this story. It was such a joy to create.

A Convenient Engagement

A false engagement. A mysterious coast. Two reluctant hearts.

Much to her father’s dismay, Miss Amelia Buxton aspires to become a spinster, just like her eccentric aunt. Growing up with parents who married for every reason but love, she has never seen a prosperous and joyful marriage. When Amelia requests a summer trip to the legendary waters of Brighton with her aunt, her father allows her the excursion, but with one requirement: She must return engaged, or agree to the proposal of the man of his choosing.

Crawling with tourists, Brighton is not the town Adam Claridge had once loved. When his sister Eleanor disappears without warning, Adam is desperate to bring her home. In his search, he happens upon Miss Amelia Buxton, a young tourist that proves vital in his search for Eleanor. But Amelia is conducting a search of her own–a search for a husband, and Adam has little choice but to offer a fair trade: He will play the role of Amelia’s betrothed in exchange for her assistance in finding Eleanor.

Convenient at first, Amelia and Adam’s arrangement quickly plummets into disarray. Falling in love had not been part of their bargain.

Coming October 2018!

Between hardship and sorrow, she finds more than she bargained for, forced to choose between the life she once wanted and a new love she never imagined.
