Mark your calendars! Three weeks from today–on November 15–I’ll release a stand-alone novella called My Scandalous Duke. It’s a friends to lovers romance set in 1801, a little earlier than my other books.

Here’s the blurb…

Lady Eleanor Palmer, a practical young widow, wants a family of her own. Her first marriage was an adventurous disaster, so this time, nothing but the most proper sort of man will do. Absolutely not who she’s looking for? The impulsive, roguish Duke of Hampshire…even though she has secretly loved him as long as she can remember.

Nicholas Langford, the Duke of Hampshire, has always relied on Eleanor’s humor and good sense. Who else would guide him through a scandal with laughter and grace? He would do anything to ensure his old friend’s happiness—even help Eleanor find a suitable new husband.

As Eleanor makes plans for a new life without him at its center, Nicholas realizes the depth of his own feelings. But he can offer Eleanor nothing she thinks she wants. How can he convince her he is everything she truly desires?

I hope you all will love Nicholas and Eleanor’s story! To be notified when My Scandalous Duke is available, sign up for my newsletter on the Home page.
