My new e-novella releases on Jan 7th. It's a sexy story of a housekeeper who finds love and lust with her employer, a Scottish earl. Love those guys in kilts! Here's the link to an excerpt and buy buttons. Oh, and here's the cover. Isn't he hot?

Yup, that's Harvey Stables on my cover and he's not only a nice guy, he's great fun to look at. So I thought-since he's great fun and all-that I'd let you all vote on which of his covers you like the best. So here you go: a short Harvey Stables retrospective! Oh, and by the way, one lucky commentor will get signed copies of the earlier Bridal Favors novels. That's three books, by the way: WEDDED IN SCANDAL, WEDDED IN SIN, and WHAT THE BRIDE WORE. I'm afraid you'll have to wait until next month to get WHAT THE GROOM WANTS. That's the fourth and possibly final book. Excerpt and preorder links here.

The Groom's Gamble
January 7, 2014

An original novella linked to Jade Lee's hot new Regency bride series, a prequel to What the Groom Wants.

Caroline Lyncott, great grandaughter of the Duke of Bucklynde, has a secret. Years ago she was attacked and still bears the terrible scars. To escape the scandal and the reminders, she left everything behind to become housekeeper to a Scottish brother and sister.

Gregory Murray, the Earl Of Hartfell, has a secret as well - he harbors a deep attraction to his housekeeper, Mrs. Lyncott. He knows she has a past, but doesn't know how to fix the pain that still haunts her. His investigation leads him to the darkest London gaming hell and a villain too powerful to destroy.

Can his love overcome her desperate past? Can she risk her heart despite the evil that still haunts her nightmares?

And's HARVEY! (plus above)

Re: Jade Lee | MANCHEST!

Oh my! So few covers have the man hair. No waxing. Really, do the Scottish earls wax? haha Anyway, grand cover. Its a sale for me.
(Lisa Hutson 12:26pm January 5, 2014)

I love your books and will definitely be buying more!!! Thanks for the giveaway!!!
(Bonnie Capuano 7:55am January 5, 2014)

nice to get the whole set, thanks!
(Nancy Krueger 9:03am January 5, 2014)

It's a toss-up between Thunder Struck and The Groom's Gamble. Here's why. He's a knockout with his clothes on, but when you look at all of the covers with his shirt off, in The Groom's Gamble Cover, he looks the most mature - both in his face and physique. His pecs are really developed, or perhaps he knows how to pose them, but nevertheless, I bet I could stand behind him like that, and get him to open his mouth!! lol j/k I'm looking forward to reading that book especially!! Have a wonderful, Happy, and Healthy New Year!!
(Peggy Roberson 9:27am January 5, 2014)

say Thunder Struck. I hope that 2014 is a healthy and happy year for you. I
can't wait to read more of your books.

3)Thunder Struck
(Amanda Gardner 2:33pm January 5, 2014)

The Grooms Gamble, Thunder Struck and Body Guard. A lot of
times we see a beautiful woman with a gorgeous dress and part
of a man, on Grooms Gamble we get a delightful view of "all
man" Of course, I would like all the covers, poster size
(Debbie McCreary 2:41pm January 5, 2014)

My fav is THE GROOM'S GAMBLE! Of course the others are all
pretty picturesque as well.
(Glenda Martillotti 9:00pm January 6, 2014)

OMG, before I even get to your book blurbs I look at those great covers and I drool. You had me at the cover!!
(Marcia Berbeza 12:47pm January 7, 2014)

I love looking at his face and chest in What the Groom Wants. It would be such a shame to deprive anyone of viewing those fine features. However, that gorgeous back pictured on Grimm Consequences and Unclaimed is also a lovely sight to behold. Then, those luscious arms (Captive Rose) and that intense, sexy, overall appeal in Her Bodyguard can't be ignored either. Heavens, what a difficult decision. I'm going with the most touchable sexiness of The Groom's Gamble.
(Michelle Willms 10:21am January 8, 2014)

(Denise Holcomb 5:41pm January 8, 2014)

Hi Jade!
I love that The Groom’s Gamble came out last month and we don't have long to wait for What the Groom Wants will be available next month! I love series but sometimes I love when we don't have to wait for almost a year for the next book to become available!

I must admit that sometimes I'll buy a book but then wait so I can read all the books at one time!

Whoever does your covers does such a good job that they really give the reader a sense of the story before you even open the cover!
(Jeanne Miro 11:21pm January 8, 2014)

i love the cover Groom's Gamble is so hot
(Carolyn Johnson 6:26pm January 12, 2014)

Congratulations on your new release! The Groom's Gamble sounds like a great book. The cover is fantastic and is definitely my favorite.
(Bonnie H 8:52pm January 25, 2014)

I like THUNDER STRUCK because of the vivacious colors and THE GROOM'S GAMBLE because it is sexy.
(Cathy Phillips 4:43pm February 5, 2014)
