The Governess Game, book two in the “Girl Meets Duke” series, now has a book description and a release date! (August 28, 2018) The cover will be coming soon. It’s gorgeous, and I can’t wait to share it!

I know, August is far away. I wish I wrote faster, I really do. But the book is available for preorder on Amazon, and probably will be on other retailers soon, so if you preorder it now, you won’t have to remember in August. 😉 Or sign up for my newsletter, and you’ll always get an email when I have a new book out—along with announcements of any special contests or sale prices.

I want to thank all my readers for the amazing love you gave The Duchess Deal. I’m proud to share that the book was honored on several “Best of 2017” lists, including Amazon, Entertainment Weekly, Library Journal, and Vulture. It was also a New York Times and USA Today bestseller. I’m so grateful for all the lovely support for Emma and Ash’s story. Whether you bought it, borrowed it from a library, listened to it, recommended it to a friend, or reviewed it on your favorite site…thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Wishing you a New Year filled with peace, joy, and romantic reads.

He’s been a bad, bad rake – and it takes a governess to teach him a lesson.

The accidental governess

After her livelihood slips through her fingers, Alexandra Mountbatten takes on an impossible post: transforming a pair of wild orphans into proper young ladies. However, the girls don’t need discipline. They need a loving home. Try telling that to their guardian, Chase Reynaud: duke’s heir in the streets and devil in the sheets. The ladies of London have tried—and failed—to make him settle down. Somehow, Alexandra must reach his heart… without risking her own.

The infamous rake

That should prove he can’t be tamed. But Alexandra is more than he bargained for: clever, perceptive, passionate. She refuses to see him as a lost cause. Soon the walls around Chase’s heart are crumbling… and he’s in danger of falling, hard.… Read More »
