Prepublication Announcement for Duchess in Waiting

Click to Read Excerpt/PreorderIt 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.

Release Day!

Today I’m celebrating the release of His Desire, Book 2 of the Montclair Chronicles by Siren BookStrand. William Montclair, the only child and heir of the Earl and Countess of Ashford (Robbie and Emmy from His Obsession) has always done his duty. When he returns home after the war with Napoleon, he is determined to find a wife who will bear the children he needs and accept what he has to offer—marriage without love.

Georgiana Janson, an impoverished soldier’s widow with a young daughter, worked as a nurse in the field hospital where she and met and fell in love with William Montclair. On their return to London Will sets her up nicely, but she realizes that she can’t accept what Will offers—love without marriage.

When her circumstances change, Georgi must decide what she wants in her life. Too late, Will discovers what he needs most in his. Despite interfering relatives and answering a call to war, Will mounts his own campaign to court and win the love of his life. 

Loved doing the research for this book, most of this month’s Regency posts on my webpage/blog (ritabay.com) were bits of info collected along the way. Click the book cover to read an excerpt of or buy His Desire (M/F, Sensual)  His Obsession is available there also. In His Obsession Emmy was kidnapped and sold into a pirate’s harem in Rabat, the capital of the pirate’s Republic of Bou Regreg. It’s in the Top 10 Mainstream Bestsellers this week at BookStrand.

The blogs for the next two weeks will visit places from the Montclairs’ Regency World.

Tomorrow, An Excerpt from His Desire, then Tattersall’s. Rita Bay
