Happy First Line Friday everyone! I’m still on the road with the family, on the last day of our trip to Melbourne. It’s been a busy, but fun time, and tonight we will be home with all the fun of unpacking to take care of! But before all of that, I have a very special guest to introduce to you, all the way from Moss Vale in New South Wales, about three hours south of my home:
That’s right! This morning I met up with Carolyn Miller, author of the Regency romances The Elusive Miss Ellison, which came out in February of this year, and The Captivating Lady Charlotte, which releases on 27 June 2017. You can pre-order here.
We had a lovely chat and a walk along the main street, visiting a few places as we went. I’ll even have an interview for you closer to release day, but for now, let me share a little about Carolyn’s upcoming release:
~ About the Book ~
Lady Charlotte Featherington is destined for great things on the marriage market. After all, as the beautiful daughter of a marquess, she should have her pick of the eligible nobility when she debuts. She, however, has love at the top of her list of marriageable attributes. And her romantic heart falls hard for one particularly dashing, attentive suitor. Sadly for Charlotte, her noble father intends her betrothed to be someone far more dull.
William Hartwell may be a duke, but he knows he was Charlotte’s father’s pick, not the young lady’s own choice. And the captivating Lady Charlotte does not strike him as a woman who will be wooed by his wealth or title. While she has captured his heart, he has no idea how to win hers in return–and the betrayal and scandal his first wife put him through makes it difficult for him to believe that love can ever be trusted. His only hope is that Charlotte’s sense of responsibility will win out over her romantic notions.
Can a widowed duke and a romantically inclined lady negotiate a future and discover love beyond duty? Will they be able to find healing and hope from the legacy of grace?

The room glimmered with a thousand points of sparkling light, the bright glow from the enormous crystal-dropped chandelier glinting off heavily beaded gowns, ornate mirrors, and the desperation shining in dozens of pairs of eyes.
Good one, huh?!
