Romance Historical

A duchess awaiting trial for her vile husband's murder is the most delicious gossip the ton has heard in years. But for Kate Townsende, the woman in question, it could be a matter of life and death. And when a shrewd and handsome nobleman offers to publish her side of the story while arranging for a barrister to take her case, she's tempted by much more than the chance to defend herself...

James Bancroft, Viscount Medford, tells himself he's only interested in a bestselling pamphlet, but Kate's stubborn determination is captivating. Could the accused widow be telling the truth? At first, James isn't sure of anything besides his growing desire for her...but before long he's willing to risk much more than his reputation to make the infamous beauty his wife.

Re: Secrets Of A Scandalous Marriage

Nope, this aspiring author couldn't stop writing and wrote a five-book mystery series before shopping them around to publishers. We're all different. Well done on getting your dream!

Sometimes the simplest of ideas turn out to be the best ones!! Your trilogy sounds really good, and I'm anxious to read it. I'm glad that your ideas took off to much fanfare, and hope that your future ideas bear as much fruit!!

I love that you were being asked for more stories when just
getting published. This shows there's a need and a demand for
what you are writing. I love historical fiction and this one
has title that tickles me to open the book and flip through
the pages and savor what's to come.
