He can have any woman in London—except the one he wants.
A dashing rake must prove he has changed to win his one true love from the arms of another, in this witty new Regency romance.
Clarissa Studley wishes to marry, and yearns to be loved for more than just her fortune. She has two firm rules: no rakes and no fortune-hunters — her father was both, and she’ll never forget the misery he caused.
So, when Race, Lord Randall, starts to pay Clarissa attention, she knows she mustn’t give in to him. Attractive and charming as he is, Race’s reputation precedes him. But for the first time in his life, Race is truly in love, and when a rival for Clarissa’s affections appears, he must
convince Clarissa to trust him. Can a rake really change? And can Clarissa put aside her unhappy past and risk her heart on a rake?

The Christmas Bride
The Christmas Bride - a sweet holiday novella
I’m delighted to announce that I’ve finally dipped my toe into self-publishing with a brand new Christmas novella. The Christmas Bride is a Chance Sisters’ novella about Blake Ashton, who readers met in The Autumn Bride. It’s a sweet, Regency-era story of forgiveness and redemption — and love.
A chance meeting on a dark highway, a wounded heroine, a hero-in-waiting and Christmas . . .
When Blake Ashton reluctantly returns to England for a business meeting—his first visit in ten years—he learns his partners are getting ready for a big family Christmas in the country. Ash wants none of that. He has just one plan in mind—to show his face, then immediately return to his free and easy life in the Far East.
Making his way to Devon on a freezing dark night, he’s accosted on the road by a footpad. Shots are exchanged and to Ash’s horror he discovers he’s accidentally wounded a girl. Ash can’t leave her bleeding in the road, so he stays and tends her.
Charlotte Underwood, in hiding from an unscrupulous guardian, is battling to support herself and her little brother. Wounded, and helpless in the hands of this handsome stranger, Charley soon realizes her heart is in danger from him too.
Swept into a family Christmas with Max and Abby Davenham, and Abby’s ‘sisters of the heart’—not to mention their imperious aunt, Lady Beatrice—Charley finds the friendship and support her lonely heart craves. And as his feelings for Charley grow, Ash is forced to face up to his own past, and the reason he left England in the first place.
THE CHRISTMAS BRIDE is available as an e-book and a (very cute) paperback from all the usual sites.
