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

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.
