Breaking the Rules is Now Available!

The main characters in Breaking the Rules are Miss Lilly Lowell and Mr. Roger Morris. I introduced both of them in The Earl’s Inconvenient Wife, which I published way back in 2012. Over the years, I’ve had a couple of requests to write their story. I didn’t have the right plot to put them in until recently, so that’s why it took me so long to get to it.

You may want to read The Earl’s Inconvenient Wife first.

If you haven’t read The Earl’s Inconvenient Wife, it’s free at all retailers so you can pick it up and read it first. (Links to the book are on this page.) The Earl’s Inconvenient Wife is Book 1 in the Marriage by Scandal Series.

I did recently change the cover. In case you don’t recognize the new cover, I thought I should post the old one. If you only found me after I changed covers, I’ll post the new one, too.

The old cover looked like this:

The new cover looks like this:


Is it necessary to read The Earl’s Inconvenient Wife? No. But if you want the backstory that goes with Lilly and Roger, you’ll want to. I don’t go heavily into their backstory in Breaking the Rules.

Another note I want to make about Breaking the Rules is that this book takes place BEFORE A Most Unsuitable Earl. That means that Ethan (Lord Edon) and Christopher (Mr. Robinson) are still SINGLE at the time of this book. This is very important to remember when reading Breaking the Rules. If I explain why, it’ll spoil some of the book.

With all that aside, I’ll finally get to the information about Breaking the Rules.

Here’s the description:

They say a proper lady follows the rules. She lets the gentleman take the lead. She obeys her chaperone. She is soft spoken and careful in everything she says and does. She doesn’t intrude into a gentleman’s business. And she most certainly doesn’t become the object of scandal.

Miss Lilly Lowell has been careful to follow the rules all of her life. But the rules aren’t helping her now when she needs it most. She made the terrible mistake of spurning Mr. Morris’ attention, and now he’s looking for someone else to marry. Determined to get him back, she hatches a plan to make him fall in love with her again. And doing so will require her to start breaking some rules.

Hurt by Miss Lowell’s rejection, Mr. Roger Morris is seeking out another lady to court. But after endless social engagements, it starts to become clear to him that no one can take her place. Whether he likes it or not, he is doomed to love her. She is the perfect lady for him. But the last thing he wants to do is give in, especially when she creates a scandal that forces him to marry her.

This might just be a match made in hell. Or maybe, quite possibly, heaven…as long as Lilly can figure out a way to make things right.
