A Scandalous Bequest

It's been awhile since you heard from me. That's because of a little girl who has come into my  life--my grandchild. I've been just a tad busy enjoying the experience of becoming a grandmother. 

I've also been revising A SCANDALOUS BEQUEST, which was first published as a Traditional Regency by Signet in 1982 and was my 2nd Regency for Signet (Penguin/Putnam/Dutton/New American Library). It was written before the advent of the internet, which means there were lots of things it was difficult or impossible to research back then. I've had to make changes to the story based on what I now know was and wasn't possible back then.

I did more than that, however. A SCANDALOUS BEQUEST was written right after my daughter was born, when life was kind of crazy, and was, in addition, very much a product of its time. Well, times have changed and so, while trying to preserve the best of the original, I spent several months rewriting A SCANDALOUS BEQUEST to make it, I believe, a better book--especially for 2016. I hope all of you will appreciate those changes and also feel it makes the book better.

I'm excited to be able to say that A SCANDALOUS BEQUEST is on pre-order this week and will be "live" and download on August 22, 2016. It's also available right now in paperback from Amazon.

Teaser for the book:

It wasn't supposed to be like this. Marriage wasn't supposed to be for sale. But sometimes life doesn't work out quite the way one expects . . . .

Felicity Lyford hasn't had an easy time of it. That's why she leaps at a chance at a London Season—even if it is because of a rather scandalous bequest. But can she protect herself from two of the most notorious rakes in London—Sir Anthony and Lord Eastcott—and choose a husband based on her head instead of her heart? 

Note: The Nook version at Barnesandnoble.com is the one option I cannot make available for pre-order but it WILL be available starting August 22, as well.
