Marry in Secret — July 30, 2019

Marry in Secret

Marry in Secret

Book #3 in my "Convenient Marriage" series

This is Rose’s story. 
Rose is the most beautiful of the Rutherford girls. She’s spirited, outspoken and she’s fed up with being courted by fortune hunters. She’s about to make a splendid, though loveless match —  a marriage of convenience to the biggest prize on London’s marriage mart. But at the “speak now or forever hold your peace” part of the ceremony, a man steps forward, rough, ragged, tough — and Rose’s shocking secret comes out. . .  

MARRY IN SECRET is up now for pre-order.
You can visit the Marry In Secret page here.
I’ll post an excerpt soon.

You can do a fun little online jigsaw puzzle of the cover here.

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
and 
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.

You can read a snippet or two from MARRY IN HASTE here.
You can read about book #2, MARRY IN SCANDAL, Lily’s story, here.

Yes very interesting 👍 thank you Anne

In German we say tick-tack (pronounced tick-tuck). It seems the same rules apply to other languages too.

I love this

Never realized that there was a specific rule that covers this. I guess we are so used to it that hearing it any other way makes is sound odd. Thank you for this eye opener.

Very cool!!!! Thank you!

For those who can't eat chocolate or wheat-based hot cross buns, I reckon these are a very cute dish for the Easter table. ... See MoreSee Less
