In A Misguided Lord, my heroine will do anything to protect her family, even if it means marrying the wrong gentleman. It doesn't matter how happy, or unhappy she is, as long as her family is safe and in one home together. My hero knows exactly what he needs and the type of lady who should become his Countless. His life is orderly and a decades old scandle hidden from public censure. Everything is as it should be until the heroine careens into him, upsetting the perfect balance of his world and he relaizes just how misguided his life has been.
In my latest, His Contract Bride, the heroine is tricked to believe she's about to have the one thing all young ladies of her time period can only dream of: a love match. However, when she learns it was actually a match arranged to help further her father's social standing, she's devastated. In his quest to smooth things over and gain at least a friendship with her, the unsuspecting hero loses his heart. These two were both victims of their parents' doings, yet were able to find romance by suffering inhumanely at sporting events and having planned and unplanned adventures.
In My Favorite Major, Major Philip Moore returns from Waterloo a broken man, both physically and emotionally scarred. Philip first appeared in the pages of a previous novel, and he is probably the noblest hero I’ve ever written. At the opening of his book, he’s a man in desperate need of his own “Happily Ever After” and is, probably, the most deserving as well. After all he’s been through and endured, I was very happy to see him finally get a happy ending of his own.
