New Book Out Now!

Marry in Scandal

Marry in Scandal

Book #2 in my "Convenient Marriage" series

This is Lily’s story.
Lady Lily is the youngest of the three Rutherford girls. She’s a little shy, a little plump, and not very confident — and you’ll soon understand why. But there are unrealized depths in Lily, and when she’s abruptly thrown into a dreadful situation, she finds unexpected strength in herself  — and an unexpected hero.

Romantic Times gave it a TopPick, and said: “The latest addition to Gracie’s Marriage of Convenience series is a beautifully rendered, emotionally powerful tale full of the wonder and healing power of love. Readers will empathize with her well-drawn characters and delight in the growth of their relationship, cheering them on to their HEA. The pacing never falters and the tried and true theme shines in Gracie’s talented hands. Plus her fans will adore seeing the Chance sisters again and smile at Aunt Agatha’s escapades. A story readers will cherish.”   (Thank you Kathe Robin and Romantic Times)

MARRY IN SCANDAL is up now for pre-order.

A multi award winner

Marry in Haste

A multi award winner

The book that launched my "convenient marriage" series

Marry In Haste  won the 2018 HOLT Medallion Award for outstanding literary fiction in the Historical category, from the Virginia Romance Writers.  Thank you to the organizers, and congratulations to all the other winners and  finalists.

It also won three awards from the Australian Romance Readers Assoc’n (ARRA) Awards, winning

 * Favourite Historical Romance
Favourite Couple from a romance published in 2017 (Cal and Emm from MARRY IN HASTE).

Also at ARRA I was voted the Favourite Australian Romance Author. 
Thank you to the ARRA organizers, and congratulations to all the other winners and  finalists.

  Marry In Haste came out in 2017. It was the start of a brand new new series, and stars a very masculine hero, who really needs to learn how to handle women. Hint: they’re not the same as soldiers. I had a lot of fun writing this book — some might say torturing the hero, but really, it’s for his own good. You’ll meet several former soldiers, a heroine who thinks she’s lost all hope of love, marriage or children, a gaggle of uncontrollable young women (or so my hero thinks) a tremendously snobbish headmistress, a daffy aunt and a scary one, an unsquashable schoolgirl, a wolfhound, a poodle (except he’s really a man) and many more. You’ll even meet a beloved character from The Chance Sisters series.

She writes award-winning mysteries that are splashed with humor, romance and whatever else sounds fun. Her Deadwood series has won multiple national awards, including the Daphne du Maurier for Excellence in Mystery/Suspense. Ann obtained her bachelor’s degree in English with an emphasis on creative writing from the University of Washington and now lives with her family in the mountains of northern Arizona. When she’s not dabbling in fiction, she writes and leads workshops on the writing craft and self-promotion.
