Release Date

I just heard from my editor that the release date for Not Quite a Lady will be April 14th. That means the project went from submission to publication in 3 months, which is almost unheard of. I'm a bit stunned. I figured I'd have more time to work on getting this blog up and running and, I suppose, more time to rest on my laurels. Instead, it's on to another project!

So, this is what I'm working on right now--draft title is Love and Deception. Setting: Regency London during the Napoleonic wars when French emigrĂ©s crowded the capital. Our heroine, Lady Elizabeth Christie, is a witty society darling, widowed, and a bit on the plump side. She's been working with our hero, Sir Andrew Talbot, to monitor gossip and news from France through her network of ton connections. So far, her involvement has been limited, but the murder of a London agent raises the stakes, and Sir Andrew must ask her to get close to one of the "persons of interest" to the Home Office.

Sir Andrew knows that he's putting Lady Christie into a risky position, but she's more than willing to do her part for king and country. Plus, she's fallen in love with the cool, diffident Sir Andrew.

More on the plot later!
