Last Friday I pitched my proposal for STROKE OF GENIUS to my editor and today, she called with an offer! Here's the blurb:
Stroke of Genius
Grace Makepeace, an American heiress, is determined to marry a titled English gent, but her Back Bay bluntness wins her the title “Least Likely to Succeed.” When she takes flirting advice from the acknowledged artistic genius who’s engaged to sculpt a marble model of her hands, she garners the attentions of a duke.
A cynical, but brilliant artist, Crispin Hawke is a keen observer of the ton and enjoys the challenge of helping Grace beat them at their own game. But he begins to wish he was the object of her passion.
STROKE OF GENIUS will be out in June 2010 from Leisure Books. Guess I need to get it written!
