forget such an important step?
So, THE LADY'S MASQUERADE is published and available across all venues (Amazon, B&N, Smashwords for Apple, Kobo, Sony etc.)
Also, I will be publishing the paperback version this week, with a give-away of 3 copies on Goodreads to run for the month of June. So if you're a member and you'd like a copy, enter to win. (I'm hoping to get all the bugs worked out by Tuesday so look for it. Please.)
Here's the cover copy ~
Someone is trying to kill Lady Penelope Leighton’s father, and now the fiend has turned his sights on her. Frightened, she flees
masquerading as a traveling companion for her elderly aunt. London
When William Smith, the Earl of Westerly, arrives in
to a hero’s welcome he does not want, he takes the stewardship at his cousin’s manor in Wakefield-by-the-Sea to escape. He is more than surprised when he meets the mysterious Miss Penny Higgins residing there with a persnickety duchess. London
Miss Higgins’ unfathomable beauty and stunning intellect are in direct contrast to her dowdy clothes and recurring stutter. William discerns the ladies are in trouble, it’s obvious they are in hiding, and William means to find out why, but no one is talking.
Before either of them realizes it, they’ve lost their hearts – Penny to a man who she thinks is a steward, and William to a woman destined for a duke.
After Penny’s true identity and reason for hiding are revealed to William, he immediately engages his friends in a campaign to help catch the blackguard who threatens her. However, upon their return to
, a confounding chain of events leads them right into the villain’s trap. Can William save her before it’s too late? London
Also to note, this is the first book in the series and will give insight to many of the characters found in my other stories. And if you're clever enough, may be able to figure out Lady Olivia's big secret before I release the last book in the series in 2014.
Have a great week!
