Sequel to Rescue by Ruin.
Sarah Rigdon is desperate. Penniless with taxes due, she can either beg mercy from the ruthless tax collector or turn to the last man she wants to ask for help. Archer Latimer stirs desires no proper lady would ever admit to. Though their meetings always end in quarrels, she can’t deny the heat between them. When he agrees to help, Sarah thinks her luck has turned. But she should have known nothing with Archer is ever easy.
Archer and his lover Warren Dorvee have spent years searching for the right woman to complete their family. Both believe luscious Sarah is the one and now have a chance to pursue her. After all, the price of Archer’s help is for Sarah to pose for Warren’s latest painting. Nude.
But trust has to be earned and a crisis in London threatens their love. The three must navigate through lust, lies and secrets or risk being torn apart forever.
Inside Scoop: Contains m/m, GLBT and ménage.
A Romantica® historical erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave
I realised the other day I hadn’t actually shared my Happy News with an official announcement!
My editor at Ellora’s Cave has contracted Sexy Steampunk 2. It is scheduled to release April 16th. It is the sequel to Rescue by Ruin, but either book can be read without the other. They are both independent stories. I am just waiting for the finished cover to reveal the title (which I love;) and the cover.
My editor has also contracted Tangled Redemption, book 4 in the Celestial Surrender series. I am very excited about this book as it will tie up all the loose ends I’ve spread across books 1-3. It also finally puts the Spaniard on the page, something my critique partner has been asking for with every book. This is the first book I have sold on proposal. It is a little intimidating having sold a book that is not yet written, but I am certain I can make it work;).
And lastly, but by no means leastly, Loose Id has contracted my super-sexy steampunk Christmas novella Dirigibles Are Forever. The title is not final. The story has a bit of a James Bond theme (hence the title;) and is filled with smoking hotness and a lot of swashbuckling fun. The release is planned for December 2014.
I am very excited to share all these stories with my readers.
And to use my friend Lexi Post‘s catchphrase: It’s Happy News, that means it’s going to be a great day!
Have a fabulous week!
Welcome to the Weekend Writing Warriors. Each Sunday we share 8 sentences from a current or finished manuscript. Click here for the rest of the amazing writers participating.
Today I have another snippet from Rescue by Ruin, a Victorian steampunk story. Bea and Vaughn escaped the AirPirates in a dashing flight filled with swash and buckle. Now they are back on the ground and Bea has to decide on what she wants to do next.
“He studied her face. “Is that really what you want? Don’t you think we have a few things to talk about, Beatrice?”
Bea wanted to curl her cheek into the warmth of his hand. His eyes, even covered by goggles, held a need and a vulnerability she couldn’t ignore. Nor could she ignore the demand inside herself to spend more time with this exciting and fascinating man.
And they had to talk about how to move on from this tenuous position.
I am currently enjoying the beautiful sunshine on St. Croix. Here is the view from my window:
Happy Sunday and Happy Writing.
Forced to marry a violent man, Beatrice knows only one way out—ruin her reputation. She climbs aboard the Venia, a dirigible of ill repute, for a masquerade. Bea does not expect to run into Vaughn Kemple, the third Duke of Missenden, who eight months ago left her without an explanation. Feeling secure behind her mask, she decides Vaughn will be the one to ruin her. She may not get to spend forever with this man she still loves, but at least she can have one night of pleasure.
But a mask is not enough to hide her identity. Vaughn recognizes Bea, shocked to find her aboard an airship where sexual freedom isn’t just a thought, it’s celebrated. But her actions are far from innocent. Captivated, he’s determined to make her his.
The heat between them flares, but Vaughn is torn between desire and honor. Bea is afraid to risk her heart on a man she can’t trust. And when her future husband arrives on the scene, it’s more than their hearts in danger.
If you would like to win a copy of Rescue by Ruin come to HappilyEverAfterThoughts and comment. Contest runs until Tuesday 18th.

I am visiting a wonderful friend and fellow author Lexi Post in sunny St. Croix. I am very much looking forward to running away from the mountains of snow and the horrendous temperatures of around -20C (-4F). I have never been to the Caribbean. I cannot wait to see Lexi and celebrate the wonderful fun in the sun (and her amazing ice cream;).
My prize for this Valentines’s fun hop is one of my sexy books. Just tell me what your Fantasy Valentine’s Day would look like.
