(Not because I can't do it right now, but we're doing another fund raiser at the school and the "big" reveal will be October 1 when the paperback comes out.)
And yes, for this novella there will be a paperback version. This is going to be the focus for the fund raising event. And I get to do my first book signing. Yay!
And I just want to reiterate, this story is NOT my typical Regency romance. I wrote it for the winners for a prize I donated at the school so there is a lot of historical context, and more about the teachers whom I wrote it for than an actual romance.
Cover copy --
Dianne Lessard survived
Reign of Terror, years without her parents, and the security of a permanent
home. In the summer of 1809, she needed a job. Her position as governess was at
an end. Her luck seemed heaven sent when she read the ad in the Ladies Gazette requiring a French
teacher for a private school. After securing two interviews, she not only had a
job, but a new home.
However, Dianne’s happiness is short-lived when her teaching methods go awry and the headmistress, Mrs. Heaton, is not pleased. Can Dianne rise above her failures and conquer Mrs. Heaton’s disappointment?
A handsome Captain on leave from his duties fighting Napoleon’s forces, surprises Dianne with a simple question, and forces her to rethink her once fierce independence for a chance at marriage and family. But then, the Captain is sent back to sea, and Dianne wrestles with her guilt for never answering his query.
Dianne’s faith is sorely tested at every turn, but it is the only thing that remains constant in her topsy-turvy world. Will it desert her when she needs it the most?
If you should buy it, I would be ever so grateful if you could leave a review either at Amazon or Goodreads.
Hope you have a great week!
