The A-Z Challenge Letter A

I've never done this, but I thought it might be fun. My theme for this challenge is to show you my characters from all my books.

A is for Amanda.

This is Amanda Pomeroy, Lady Penelope Leighton's best friend growing up. She went off to America with her father when she was fourteen, but had kept up a correspondence with Penny.

In THE CAPTAIN'S LADY, Captain Richard Gaines is going to America, and Penny asks him to deliver a package to Amanda.

Richard gets more than he bargained for when he meets the lovely Amanda, and their story is filled with swashbuckling heroes and high-seas adventure.

  7. A full alphabet of character names is definitely a challenge! Quint, Xavier, Zed...

  9. It is a great way to stir interest in your books, Anne. I had a similar idea, though I also included locales of my books. Alice Wentworth is, of course, my post of today. Ada Byron is the focus of the post of tomorrow. See? I gentlemanly let the ladies enter first! LOL. Roland

    1. Pretty much. And if I don't have names, I fill in with lesser characters. You'll see.

    1. Q is for Quiggins. Can't forget about him. X is pretty fun as well. And Z, well, you'll just have to wait for Z.

  14. I'm really curious--when will this one come out? I can find some of the reluctant grooms series at Amazon & Smashwords, but not in order. (Two and four, but not one or three?). Do you have a page where you show your titles, their status (published, in progress, etc.)?
