I am so excited for this new set I’m in! The five other superb authors who are in the set and I have created an anthology of second-chance-at-love stories with the focus on older women, rather than the usual Regency virginal misses. These ladies are 30+ and ready for another try at finding their Happy Ever After. Here’s a look at our stories:
A Second Chance…a do-over? These ladies are not the young naïve girls they once were. Now they are WOMEN who know the value of love, who have faced challenges and aren’t afraid to seek what they want.
Come along as they risk it all for a second chance at a happily ever after.
Mrs. Sartin’s Secretary by Wendy LaCapra… Mrs. Amelia Sartin helms her late husband’s company and implicitly trusts her Secretary, Matthew Bellamy. However, as she cedes company control to her heir, can Bellamy persuade Amelia he is one thing she cannot leave behind?
To Hell and Back by Annabelle Anders… Eve Mossant’s life has been quite turned over. As has the carriage she was traveling in to attend her estranged husband’s funeral. Thank heavens for Mr. Waverly, her ever dependable man of business. She wouldn’t know where she’d be without him…
A Lady’s Guide to Marriage by Tabetha Waite… She’s never stopped loving him. He’s never stopped loving her. But is love enough to salvage a crumbling marriage, or will it be their ultimate undoing?
Heart of Decadence by Jenna Jaxon… Miss Amelia Burrowes was the scandal during her first Season, when her fiancée died. Ten years later, she’s back in London to make an arranged marriage that will hopefully allow her sisters to be received by the ton. But when Nathan, Lord Ainsley, arrives, the flame between them rekindles and Amelia must convince him that a woman with a past deserves a future.
A Letter From a Lady by Cynthia Sterling… Deserted by her husband, Lady Clarissa Delaware has opened her home as a respite for ailing gentry, but her newest lodger is a mystery man who seems far too interested in her. Will dangerous intrigue and forbidden passion unite Viscount Adam Kendrick and Lady Clarissa in a bond sure to cause scandal?
A Lady of Courage by Catherine Tinley… Following a scandalous elopement and a cloud of mystery over the legitimacy of her child, Elizabeth has spent years in exile, hiding away from society. Now back in London for the first time, can she find the courage to regain her place and find love?
The set is up on Amazon for pre-order and will also be available for KU readers when it releases on April 23!
If you’d like to read the first chapter of my novella, Heart of Decadence (Book 5 in my Handful of Hearts series), it’s available right here on my blog. See the pages at the top of this post. I’m also sharing snippets of Chapter 2 on Weekend Writing Warriors each Sunday, so you can keep up until the release.
Also, my novella ties into Heart of Desire, an earlier book in my series. In that one we first meet Nathan, Lord Ainsley, whose sister is the heroine of Book 2. To celebrate the upcoming release (and to introduce you to Nathan), I’ve put Heart of Desire on sale on Amazon for .99 thru April. So you can grab it and feed your reading habit until Second Chance Love comes out. 🙂
I’ll also be highlighting the entire series here on my blog this month. All the books are connected, with the characters reoccurring in each novella as the heroes and heroines come forward with their stories. I hope you like them all!
