I’m here! I’m alive! I’ve been swamped with deadlines, but now that novella #3 has been turned in to my editor, I can rejoin the world! Whew.
And in the spirit of fun, this is the unofficial blurb for the as-yet-to-be-named third novella:
Bold and adventurous, Gabriella Weatherfield has a bevy of suitors…and all of them, quite frankly, bore her to tears. Until, at her best friend’s house party, she is introduced to the handsome recluse, Nicholas Montgomery, coldly known as the “unseducable” duke of Somerset. During a night of fun and revelry, Gabriella’s friends challenge her to a dare…with nothing but her irresistible charms; she must win a kiss from the duke!
Nicholas is secretly intrigued by Gabriella, but when he overhears the reckless beauty accept a scandalous dare involving him, it’s a temptation he simply can’t ignore. Someone needs to teach the vixen a lesson and he’s just the man to do it. Trouble is, Nicholas craves more than just a kiss–he hungers for Gabriella, body and soul. But when she discovers his painful secret; a secret he has been keeping his entire life, he is forced to make a choice that could mean certain ruin or losing Gabriella forever.
I don’t have a firm release date yet, but I believe it will be out in the fall/winter of 2013. Woot!
