Greetings from Sunny St. Croix

On Friday I have to get back on a plane and leave summer and sun behind. It’ll be even harder to leave my friend behind, but luckily I’ll see her in New Orleans in May at the Romantic Times Convention.

Before I am once again surrounded by snow let me share some of the wonderful photos I’ve taken.

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.

She nodded.”

I am currently enjoying the beautiful sunshine on St. Croix. Here is the view from my window:

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.

Buy it from Ellora’s Cave, Amazon or Kobo.
