My new book with Harlequin Mills & Boon is out now – and it is my 60th for Harlequin! It hardly seems any time at all since I had One Night With a Rake accepted… Least Likely to Marry A Duke was enormous fun to write and I couldn’t be more pleased that it is my anniversary title.
Coming next month, and available for pre-order now, is Mock Oyster Sauce and a Cure For Corns, recipes and household hints from a Regency housewife. As well as recipes for curries, puddings and fish dishes there are household hints and some alarming medical concoctions that definitely should not be tried at home! I have added a section on my research into the owner’s own journey from India and widowhood to a second marriage in England and an extensive glossary of unfamiliar ingredients and methods.
The Duke’s Accidental Elopement is out – and went straight into the top three of Amazon’s new Regency romance list, so many thanks to everyone who pre-ordered it!
Coming next is Least Likely to Marry a Duke – a decidedly imperfect lady meets the Perfect Duke and sparks fly. Available to pre-order now.
A Christmas novella, with no title yet, has just gone off to my editor. For once it was a pleasure to be writing a Christmas story at the right time of year. I can vividly recall writing one on the deck of a river boat travelling down the Brahmaputra which felt decidedly peculiar. With Christmas now behind me I have just begun a new Regency romance for Harlequin Mills & Boon. This one is inspired by the fashion for the medieval world that beguiled 19th century England. My heroine is going to find leaving her moated castle something of a shock.
And just for a change of pace I have transcribed a Regency housewife’s notebook of household hints and along the way unearthed her own story of widowhood in India and a second chance of love in London. The book was a challenge to decipher as you can see from the original. It is coming out as Mock Oyster Sauce and a Cure For Corns: A Regency Lady’s Receipt Book in April, but it is available to pre-order now.
The Viscount’s Dangerous Liaison, the third in the Dangerous Deceptions series got its title just in time for a December release! The next book will be the last of my Francesca Shaw titles, written over fifteen years ago and now heavily re-edited and revised before being released in February as The Duke’s Accidental Elopement.
