New Release: Celebrating the book birthday of One Tempting Proposal!

The second book in my Accidental Heirs series is near and dear to my heart for several reasons. It features my first duke hero, my favorite mean girl, and the scents of many of my favorite flowers. The plot also offers a bit of a nod to one of my favorite writers, William Shakespeare.

My fantastic Avon editor encouraged me to redeem my mean girl from One Scandalous Kiss, and I had to find my way into Kitty's heart to give her a worthy hero. While fierce alpha heroes certainly have their appeal, I knew that Kitty needed a hero with the ability to soften her tough, untouchable exterior. Thus, mathematician turned duke, Sebastian Fennick, Duke of Wrexford, began tapping on my shoulder. He has his own wounds, of course, and his desire and admiration for Kitty might just end up redeeming her as much as it does him.

Here's the blurb:

Becoming engaged? Simple. Resisting temptation? Impossible.
Sebastian Fennick, the newest Duke of Wrexford, prefers the straightforwardness of mathematics to romantic nonsense. When he meets Lady Katherine Adderly at the first ball of the season, he finds her as alluring as she is disagreeable. His title may now require him to marry, but Sebastian can’t think of anyone less fit to be his wife, even if he can’t get her out of his mind.
After five seasons of snubbing suitors and making small talk, Lady Kitty has seen all the ton has to offer…and she’s not impressed. But when Kitty’s overbearing father demands she must marry before her beloved younger sister can, she proposes a plan to the handsome duke. Kitty’s schemes always seem to backfire, but she knows this one can’t go wrong. After all, she’s not the least bit tempted by Sebastian, is she?
