"A memorable heroine and a sexily honorable hero make for a delightful romance." author of THE DUKE'S DAUGHTERS series, Megan Frampton

Lady Ashby has a pressing problem

Widowed at a young age, Isabel Ashby, yearns to marry again—this time to a young, handsome, titled husband—and live a nice, quiet life with two or three cherubic children. Having limited choices among the gentlemen of her acquaintance, Isabel decides to orchestrate a compromising position for herself to entrap the Earl of Caenby into marriage. But it all goes dreadfully wrong when she ends up unwittingly catching Major Sidney Chamberlayne instead.

Major Chamberlyane has a stoic solution

Sidney Chamberlyane is a second son, a military man of honor who is far more comfortable on the back of a horse than in a ballroom flirting with ladies of the ton. But when Sidney is caught in a passionate kiss with the delectable Lady Ashby, he can do nothing less than marry her.

With their marriage off to a stormy start, both Isabel and Sidney wade through the murky waters of mistrust. But as they begin to recognize the changes in their feelings, will the winds of scandal and gossip drag them down into dangerous depths, or will truth and love guide them home?

About the author

 I’ve lived in Regency England since I was old enough to read Jane Austen. Unfortunately, as no eligible peers presented themselves and I never could get vouchers for Almacks, I was forced to make my way by going into trade. So, I spent more years than I care to count working in the field of computer technology. It was rewarding in its own way but I never abandoned my first love. In 1997, I found an interesting way to insinuate the 19th century into the world of technology when I joined a friend in creating a Jane Austen web site. I still manage The Republic of Pemberley and invite you to come visit us if your obsession runs to Jane Austen.

In 2003, I decided that, while I would never be Jane, I might try my hand at some version of the period. After all, if I was spending most of my free time there, I might as well write about it. In 2005, Kensington Publishing published Once Upon a Sofa and Just Say Yes, which was a finalist for RWA’s RITA award and which won the Holt Medalion. I have a short story inspired by Jane Austen in Ballantine Books’ anthology, Jane Austen Made Me Do It.

To keep body and soul together as the writing progresses, I build web sites. You can visit them on my Web Sites page on this site. If you’d like me to build you one, feel free to contact me.

Yes, I am still writing and am represented by the wonderful Louise Fury from the Bent Agency.
