Romance Historical

From the Betting Book at Brook's Gentleman's Club:

Wager: £2,000 that Lord Ellis will throw the first punch when he discovers Lord Throne is wooing a certain duke's sister.

All Bets Are Off When the Game is Love

Lady Gabrielle is thrilled when Anthony Keaton, earl of Ellis, asks for her hand in marriage. She's not so pleased when he then leaves the country and four months pass without a word. Clearly, the scoundrel has changed his mind and is too cowardly to tell her. There's nothing to do but go back on the marriage mart...

When Anthony returns to town and finds his ultimate rival has set sights on Gabby, his continual battle of one-upmanship with Sebastian Thorne ceases to be a game. Anthony is determined to win back the woman who holds his heart--but he's not expecting Gabby herself to up the stakes...

Re: One Rogue Too Many

Great review! I have read Samantha' previous books & I would recommend them, too! Looking forward to this one.

My first crush was a boy in the 4th grade named Cory. He was really good at kickball on the playground and I loved playing kickball too. We went on one date finally in the 7th grade. He took me fishing. I don't like to fish, but it was fun being with him!
Sue Galuska 11:46am January 16, 2014)

Hmmm, my first crush was a boy in my sixth grade class. Our desks faced each other... He was a great friend, but never knew that I really liked him... afterwards I never saw him again... he went to another school.
Colleen Conklin 11:54am January 16, 2014)

What a sweet story! And how great that you actually got to go on a date with
your crush. I never did go out with any of my crushes. Who knows, maybe it
would have just ruined my daydreams. :)
Samantha Grace 12:22pm January 16, 2014)

Hi, Colleen!
That sounds much more like me. I never wanted my crushes to know I had a
crush on them. lol
Samantha Grace 12:23pm January 16, 2014)

yes, it was long ago, but I remember :)
Denise Holcomb 1:00pm January 16, 2014)

Kent Cook 1:58pm January 16, 2014)

It was long ago for me too, Denise. :)

Thanks for stopping by, Kent. :)
Samantha Grace 2:38pm January 16, 2014)

First crush? Not really. Maybe Tony Defranco from the singing group The Defrancos??haha
I am not sure a clip board is quirky. Sounds necessary to me. I hate writing in a notebook without one. And my lines go all wonky if I try writing on blank pages. haha
Love the cover and the title! ;-)
Lisa Hutson 3:03pm January 16, 2014)

I met my first crush at summer camp. *sigh* How could I forget that. LOL
Marcy Shuler 5:01pm January 16, 2014)

My first crush was in the 5th grade. His name was William and he asked me out to the movies. Since we were only 10 or 11 at the time,itdidn't happen. He later moved and went to anothe rschool,so I never saw him again. AH! young love.

Wow, Congrats on your new book: ONE ROGUE TOO MANY. I love
the beautiful purple dress and pretty book cover too! No, I
do not really remember my first crush but I liked a cute
football player in my town and he went for the little
cheerleader instead of a cute farm girl like Me; Hee Hee!
So, I left town and now in the big city of Austin, TX I am
on my 2nd marriage for 25 years now and have my own Personal
JESUS! So, I think I did pretty well after being divorced
for 8 years. God has been good to me. I would love to win
and read your fascinating new book this New Year in 2014.
Thank You very much. Cecilia CECE
Cecilia Dunbar Hernandez 7:02pm January 16, 2014)

My first crush was in 7th grade. He was just so cute, though I never told him. Just a lot of sighs.
Carol Woodruff 7:17pm January 16, 2014)

My first crush was a handsome young man that had teased me all through middle school. We went to the Junior Senior Prom together when I was a junior in high school. I thought dating him was a dream come true. Then, a friend of a friend took me to lunch to let me know that she had gotten pregnant with him, and her parents had to send her to New York for an illegal abortion. Abortion was not legal at the time, and New York was one of the best places to go for one at the time. Her new definitely ruined my romance! I was really disgusted with him after that!
Sandy Fielder 7:24pm January 16, 2014)

Hi Samantha!

I loved your excerpt from One Rouge Too Many! Often the excerpt that are shared really don't give us as readers a true "feel" of the story but this one did in spades!

Even though I'm in my 60's now (okay to be honest "late" 60's) I'll never forget my very first "crush". I lived in a small village at the time and at the end of my road was the baseball field that the boys in the neighborhood used to play "pick-up" games and that's where I first saw "Corky" and lost my young heart. I think I was probably in 6th grade and it's where I got my first kiss (okay more like a peck) from Corky and never missed going to watch the boys play for the entire summer. I finally figured out that the only reason he gave me that kiss was so the "team" would have someone routing for them (they were really bad baseball players and I think won once!).

Of course back them "kissing a boy" really wasn't the "done" thing but at least I knew as the next few years passed that once upon a time a had gotten my "first" kiss!
Jeanne Miro 8:47pm January 16, 2014)

My very first crush was in 1st Grade ( yeah, I know way
early). His name was Stephen and we were born on the same
day. His older sister was in some of my classes --
California in the 70s doing experimental educational. She
tried to ecourage it with plans of a wedding in the future
which completely freaked me out. :-D
Glenda Martillotti 8:56pm January 16, 2014)

I remember my first crush but he didn't notice me.
Kai Wong 9:36pm January 16, 2014)

Oh, yes! We were both in 7th grade, and he didn't know I existed.
Janie McGaugh 9:39pm January 16, 2014)

Thank you, Lisa! The odd part about the clip board is I don't write on it. LOL
There is no real purpose to having it other than when I'm finished writing, I use
the clip to hold my papers. Maybe that's not such a weird thing. It keeps
everything together, but so would a paperclip. :)
Samantha Grace 9:40pm January 16, 2014)

First love at summer camp. That would be a great memory. :)
Samantha Grace 9:41pm January 16, 2014)

Thank you! And congratulations on 25 years with the right guy! Second chance
at love stories are some my favorites, and they are even better when it's real
life. :)
Samantha Grace 9:46pm January 16, 2014)

Aww! That's so cute. :)
Samantha Grace 9:47pm January 16, 2014)

Oh, Sandy!
I'm with you. Yuck! Thank goodness you found out about him early, but that
had to be so tough to hear. :(
Samantha Grace 9:49pm January 16, 2014)

What a wonderful story of first love! So did the baseball team win more games
that summer? ;)

Thank you for your kind words. I'm so glad you got a good feel for the story
from the excerpt. I do love writing my flashback scenes. lol
Samantha Grace 9:54pm January 16, 2014)

Hahaha… I can just imagine how talk of marriage might be a little much for a
1st grader. :D
Samantha Grace 9:55pm January 16, 2014)

Hi, Kai & Janie!

My first real crush didn't notice me either. I pined most of Jr. High. He was a
basketball player, so I attended every home game and pined some more. *sigh*
Then he moved away, and I was crush-free until high school when a new boy
moved to our school. He had been in Catholic school up until 10th grade. Oh,
my goodness. My heart still skips a beat when I think of him. LOL
Samantha Grace 10:01pm January 16, 2014)

Thank you for the best wishes, Elaine. I'm sorry to hear you lost your first crush.
Samantha Grace 10:07pm January 16, 2014)

Yes, I definitely remember my first crush. I fell in love with him when I was very, very young and was deeply in love by the time I was 7. I didn't get over him until I was in high school. By the time he deigned to notice me (after he'd dated my two best friends), and asked me out, telling me how great we'd be together, I was done. I told him he'd had enough years to realize how great we'd be together. I was moving on.
Michelle Willms 10:51pm January 16, 2014)

Yes I remember. Long time ago. Thanks for a chance to win your book. Love the cover.
Linda Hall 12:03pm January 17, 2014)

Yes, as it was so long ago. Thanks for the giveaway.
Kathleen Beale 7:04am January 17, 2014)

I do... it was in what is now middle school. I'm 61 now so
that's been a while. :-)))

I love the cover! Purple is my fav color!

Thanks for the giveaway!
Linda Townsend 8:19am January 17, 2014)

I don't think a Woman ever forgets her first crush!! That's a part that stays with her for the rest of her life!! Everyone thought that I would marry mine, but it was not to be. Such is life, but I'm very happy with the person that I did marry. He was a crush as well!! As for your excerpt, it took my breath away!! I wish I had your book in front of me, so I could continue reading!! I adore the cover, too!! Congratulations on what I'm sure is going to be a great book!! It's on my TBR list for sure!!
Peggy Roberson 9:01am January 17, 2014)

I love historical romances....thanks!!!
Bonnie Capuano 9:11am January 17, 2014)

Ok it seems I'm the odd ball out. I don't remember my first
crush :0
Thank you for the giveaway. One rouge too many sounds great, I
look forward to reading it.
Alexisa Neely 9:23am January 17, 2014)

My first crush was in grade school, he was the paperboy. :-)
Margaret Branca 9:57am January 17, 2014)

I do...It was long time ago
May Pau 10:27am January 17, 2014)

mine was a long time ago when i was in middle school
Denise Smith 10:32am January 17, 2014)

Oh man. My first crush was in elementary school. We were
best friends and I liked him for at least 5 years. Sigh.
Karin Anderson 10:38am January 17, 2014)

My first crush was in 5th grade---a really tall boy with blond hair.
Sue Farrell 10:58am January 17, 2014)

My first crush was in the first or second grade and it's been so long I cannot remember his name.
Lori Yost 11:58am January 17, 2014)

No, I don't remember my first crush. It's been a long, long time ago and many things have happened since.
Anna Speed 12:08pm January 17, 2014)

My first crush was in fifth grade he wasn't very popular or cute but he was really sweet. I cant remember his name though!
Denise Austin 1:32pm January 17, 2014)

The first crush I will admit to was a blue-eyed blonde who was studying to be a
farmer. I think every other girl in middle school had a crush on him. When they
finally discovered his taste in girls the majority of us moved on.
Sandra Spilecki 4:59pm January 17, 2014)

I love the front cover!! ...and I look forward to reading this!
Betty Hamilton 5:57pm January 17, 2014)

I remember my first crush. Of course he did not know I
Mary Preston 6:47pm January 17, 2014)

first fiancee became a Trappist monk - second one was the keeper! It's been a good life, he's a good man and the kids were a nice surprise too!
Beth Fuller 6:53pm January 17, 2014)

Yes I remember my first crush, oh so many years ago!
Jean Patton 7:25pm January 17, 2014)

It's been a long time but I believe it was with an "older
man" - a neighbor - he was 16 (I was probably 9) - very sweet
Diane Sallans 9:26pm January 17, 2014)

My first crush was with a boy in my pre-school class. My parents have a picture of us at about age 5 in little graduation hats. I haven't thought about that in years.
Amy Kincade 9:26pm January 17, 2014)

Barry Manillow. :)
MaryAnne Banks 11:15pm January 17, 2014)

Michelle Willms,
Good for you! I love that you told him it was too late. :)
Samantha Grace 11:31am January 18, 2014)

Linda Hall & Kathleen Beale,
Thank you for stopping by. Good luck in the drawing! :)
Samantha Grace 11:33am January 18, 2014)

Hi, Linda T! :)
I love the purple too. I think Sourcebooks did a fantastic job on the cover. Of
course, they never disappoint me.

Middle school was my first big crush too. (We called it Jr. High.)
Samantha Grace 11:35am January 18, 2014)

Aw, thank you, Peggy! Your comment made me smile. :)

Isn't it funny how life turns out? My husband was a complete surprise too, but
the best thing that could have happened to me.
Samantha Grace 11:42am January 18, 2014)

Congratulations on the publication of One Rogue Too Many! The book sounds wonderful. Thanks for sharing the great excerpt. I love historical romance and have added this title to my wishlist. My first crush was a boy in fifth grade who didn't even notice me.
