This day has been coming for a long time, but I am pleased and proud to reveal the cover for my first full-length novel, The Accidental Viscountess, which will be released in ebook on January 7, 2020.
Spinster and poor relation Dorothea Hindley is in London for one reason: to help launch her cousin into society, something that would be a great deal easier if Dorothea’s aunt hadn’t revived a long-standing feud with the mother of a viscount. The best Dorothea can expect for herself is a dreary marriage to a vicar. But in trying to keep her family from becoming the laughingstocks of London, Dorothea finds a surprising ally in the viscount himself.
Martin Drayton, Viscount Abernathy, can’t afford the distraction of the ancient feud his mother insists on reviving. King George III lies mad at Windsor Castle and Martin is involved in supporting the Prince of Wales’ cause in the Regency Bill. But when he enlists Dorothea’s help to cool the flames of the feud, their undeniable attraction simply adds fuel to the fire.
Marrying a viscount never entered Dorothea’s head. But a moonlit kiss could lead to a scandal neither of them can afford. Can the accidental viscountess and her unexpected husband get their families to stop feuding long enough to save both the monarchy and their marriage?
To celebrate, the book will be on pre-order sale for $0.99 at Amazon and £0.99 at Amazon UK until the evening of January 6, 2020, after which it will revert to the regular price of $3.99/£3.99. Also available at Barnes & Noble, Kobo, and Google Play for the pre-order price of $0.99 until January 6, 2020.
This is very special and exciting for me, because today is not only my cover reveal, it is also my wedding anniversary. Through the years, my husband has been my greatest supporter, believing in me when I sometimes didn’t believe in myself. One couldn’t ask for a better happy ending than that.
