The Winter Bride - an excerpt:
When his best friend Max asks our hero, Freddy to keep an eye on his aunt and her nieces while Max is away — and attend their regular literary society meetings, Freddy is appalled:

“Not the literary society. The horror stories those girls read are enough to make a fellow’s hair stand on end.”

Max frowned. “Horror stories? They don’t read horror stories, only entertaining tales of the kind ladies seem to enjoy, about girls and gossip and families—”

“Horror stories, every last one of them,” Freddy said firmly. “You asked me to sit in on their literary society last month, when you went up to Manchester, remember? The story they were reading then . . .” He gave an eloquent shudder. “Horror from the very first line: It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife. Must he, indeed? What about the poor fellow’s wants, eh? Do they matter? No. Every female in the blasted story was plotting to hook some man for herself or her daughter or niece. If you don’t call that horror, I don’t know what is!”

Max chuckled.

“You can laugh, bound as you are for parson’s noose in the morning,” Freddy said bitterly, “but every single man in that story ended up married by the end of the book! Every last one.” He numbered them off on his fingers. “The main fellow, his best friend, the parson, even the soldier fellow ended up married to the silly light-skirt sister—not one single man in that story escaped unwed.” He shuddered again. “Enough to give a man nightmares. So, no literary society for me, thank you.”

*Marcus (from the Devil Riders Series)— I'm still getting lots of requests for Marcus's story. I did want to write it, but Marcus was never in the original contract and when it came time for a new contract, my publisher asked me to put Marcus aside and start on the new series. Which I did (because that's what they pay me for.) I still want to write Marcus's story and will when I have time. If you want to be kept up to date, sign up for my newsletter (in the left-hand column.) I only send out occasional newsletters when I actually have news, like a new book or something like that, so you won't get bombarded.
