It is my pleasure to announce the upcoming publication of Duchess in Waiting, an erotic Regency historical romance from Siren Publishing. Duchess in Waiting is the first novel in the Embracing the Dream trilogy, part of the Montclair Chronicles – my series that chronicles the adventures and misadventures of the noble Montclair family and their friends. Check out the cover (by Harris Channing), blurb and order info below.
Lady Ellen Hammond languished for years at Madame Foret’s Academy for Young Ladies while her fiancé and guardian, the Duke of Ralston, enjoyed a rake’s life in London. When she must return to England to escape the violence of the Revolution, she decides that the life of a long-suffering duchess-in-waiting is not for her.
Posing as a valet, Devon Townsley, the Duke of Ralston, accompanies Robert Montclair to Paris to rescue Ellen and her English friends. Unprepared to settle down, he wants to see if his fiancée will make a suitable duchess. He has his doubts when he must rescue her from captivity in a brothel.
Determined to settle her business in London and travel the world, Ellen finds romance and passion with Rob’s aggravating valet, Tobias Stanford. When sparks ignite between the two and burst into a passionate affair, Devon reconsiders his commitment to living a rake’s life. He discovers, however, that his deceit has a high price.
Duchess in Waiting is a Siren Classic scorcher that features voyeurism, light consensual BDSM, and a lesbian relationship between secondary characters (a dominatrix and a prostitute) from a local brothel. Duchess in Waiting is scheduled for release on Tuesday, March 25th. It is available for preorder at Siren BookStrand HERE or my Siren BookStrand AUTHOR PAGE that includes all of my stories. Duchess in Waiting is on sale for $4.05 through April 1st. Excerpts to follow.
