NightOwl Romance calls My Lady Below Stairs "a wonderful romantic tale that you will wish were longer." Sorry. Leisure Books required me to keep it to 30,000 words in order to save room for Jennifer Ashley and Alissa Johnson's stories(which are fabulous, BTW!) But I tried to pack plenty of romantic sizzle into that shorter format.
As usual in my tales, there's plenty of mayhem and misdirection. Here's the back cover blurb:
’TIS THE SEASON FOR SEDUCTION
It is the most anticipated event of the ton: the annual holiday ball at Hartwell House. The music is elegant, the food exquisite, and the guest list absolutely exclusive. Some come looking for love. Some will do almost anything to avoid it. But everyone wants to be there. No matter what their desires, amid the swirling gowns and soft glow of candlelight, magic tends to happen. And one dance, one kiss, one night can shape a new destiny….
Some of my characters don't even have an invitation, but they aren't going to let a little thing like that stop them! YOU, however, are at the top of the guest list! A CHRISTMAS BALL will be released on Sept. 29th. (Or you can pre-order to make sure yours arrives a little early!)
Please be sure to enter my Christmas in August Contest today. You've been so good, don't you deserve an early present?
Question for the day: Do you like anthologies? Have you ever discovered a "new to you" author you loved in one?
