I've been a writer all my life but not completed a manuscript until autumn of 2014. I'd worked in numerous fields, even owned businesses but nothing panned out for me. My default job was bartending. Having my days free something finally clicked and I figured out that I could write books. With my husband and kids cheering me on I've been writing non-stop ever since. Ironically, bartending is the perfect compliment to writing. It requires me to get dressed, go outside of my home and interact with other human beings. Writing romance novels is a dream come true. I hope my books can provide a fraction of the comfort Mary Balogh's books have brought me.
Lady Betsy Wilde’s first season was triumphant by any measure, and a duke has proposed—but before marriage, she longs for one last adventure.
No gentleman would agree to her scandalous plan—but Lord Jeremy Roden is no gentleman. He offers a wager. If she wins a billiards game, he’ll provide the breeches.
If he wins…she is his, for one wild night.
But what happens when Jeremy realizes that one night will never be enough? In the most important battle of his life, he’ll have to convince Betsy to say no to the duke.

As the years pass, A’laya travels the English countryside as a fortune teller, yearning to be reunited with Katherina.
