Secret Admirer is Now Available!

This is Book 1 in the Marriage by Obligation Series.

In this book, I do set up the other books that will follow in this series. Midnight Wedding will feature Lord Quinton and Miss Lydia Hamilton, The Earl’s Jilted Bride will feature Lady Carol and Lord Wright, and Worth the Risk will feature Mr. Reuben St. George and Miss Amelia Carnel. You might remember Lord Quinton from The Cursed Earl. (He was the hero’s best friend in that book.) Mr. Reuben St. George originally showed up in If It Takes a Scandal. (He was the sickly younger brother of Corin, aka Lord Durrant.) The main benefit of keeping all of these Regencies in the same world is that I get to bring past characters back. 🙂 Here’s a list of all of the Regencies for quick reference in case you are trying to remember The Cursed Earl and If It Takes a Scandal. I use this list a lot as I write my books and plan upcoming ones.

Here is the description:

Lady Rachel, the sister of the very wealthy and highly esteemed Duke of Creighton, has entered her first Season with great anticipation. She loves wearing beautiful gowns. She loves talking to her friends. She loves going to balls and meeting gentlemen. This is going to be the most wonderful time of her life. When she starts receiving missives from a secret admirer, it turns out the Season is even better than she imagined. What lady, after all, can resist the appeal of a mysterious stranger expressing his deep and abiding love in her?

She sets out to enlist the help of an unlikely ally to find out who her secret admirer is. She knows it’s not appropriate to be discussing such personal information with the butler, but he is the only one she trusts to not tell anyone. Little does she realize the very one she’s confiding in is the very one she’s looking for. And there’s no way he’s telling her the truth since her brother, and the rest of London, would never approve the match.
