The Cursed Earl is Now Available!

This is Book 2 in the Marriage by Necessity Series.

Here are all of the books that are in this series:

A Perilous Marriage new cover 4 the-cursed-earl-mbn-2 Heiress of Misfortune MBN 3 ebook cover

This is Algernon and Reina’s romance. Reina fell in love with him in A Perilous Marriage, and while he felt an equal attraction for her, he’s hesitant to do anything about it because he can’t give her a real marriage. He, however, ends up following his heart (rather than his head) and marries her anyway. Then a series of bad things happen that makes him wonder if he has unwittingly put her in harm’s way.

I was hoping this would be a romantic comedy, but it took on a suspenseful turn. That was fine. I don’t force the story. I let the story take its own direction because the story is always stronger that way. But I do still want a comedic angle to a hero who is convinced he’s a victim of bad luck. That’s why I’m going to write Lord Quinton’s romance. I think I can reach this particular goal in his book. I’ll get to his romance in Midnight Wedding (which will be Book 2 in the next Regency series).

    I really enjoyed this book. It was just the right amount of suspense. I also enjoyed Charles being Charles. He’s getting to be a real fun character. I had my fingers crossed that he was going to have his baby Jonathan at the end. I love happy endings.
    Reina is the kind of heroine I really like. Even if Algernon was not perfect, she saw all the best in him to love and did it unconditionally.
    Of course the side story of Lord Edon was a riot. He was a class act. It was also great to visit with some of my favorite characters. (Lord Steinbeck and Lord Toplyn especially.)
    It’s going to seem like a long wait till The Loners Bride comes out, but will be worth the wait I am sure. Looks like there are a lot of good books coming up! :))
    Thanks for writing.

    • I want you to know that I thoroughly enjoyed reading all of your thoughts on this book. Thank you for sharing them! They made my day. 😀

      I think you’ll really enjoy The Loner’s Bride. I wasn’t sure how I would ever get Jeremiah over the idea he would be alone for the rest of his life. He showed so much restraint through most of the book, even though he was attracted to Katie as soon as he saw her. I found it funny when he finally gave into his feelings for her because his actions were such a strong contrast. Once Jeremiah commits to something, he goes in 100%. 😀

        I know I will love The Loners Bride. The whole series is a favorite of mine. You really had me smiling at the end of you comment. Jeremiah is going to be so much fun.
        When I posted my comment above I was sure I had filled the email box wrong after I hit go. I was convinced it went into cyber lost mail, so I posted a shorter one a few days later. Don’t mean to confuse you if it comes through:)
        Thanks for writing. I anxiously await the next books!

        • The series is a favorite of mine, too. 😀 It’s been a pleasure to work with these characters.

          Sorry. I took longer than usual to approve comments on this blog. I wish I didn’t have to do it, but these bots (or whatever they are) spam this blog by leaving comments that have nothing to do with the post. Most of the time, they are links to other sites, and sometimes they comment under other people’s comments. One time, about 10 of these popped up on my blog, and I had to remove them. The last thing I want is for someone’s inbox to be cluttered with this garbage.

          So I did get your comment, and I thoroughly enjoyed it! 😀
