I’m pleased to announce that Siren BookStrand has contracted for Duchess in Waiting (Embracing the Dream 1) with a tentative release in March. I’m excited to return to Siren BookStrand with another installment in The Montclair Chronicles, my historical series that debuted in 2012 with His Obsession and His Desire. Duchess in Waiting, a Georgian Regency romance set in pre-Revolutionary Paris in 1789, was completed during NaNoWriMo in November, 2013. A short blurb follows.
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 discover 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 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.
