With only five days left to go until The Other Daughter (or four days, depending on how you count it?), there’s an excerpt up on USA Today!

You can find the excerpt here.


The Other Daughter

The third stand alone novel, aka the 1927 book, has both a release date and a title!

Coming to you on June 2, 2015, we have… The Other Daughter.

This is a rare– in fact, perhaps a unique– occasion in which my working title looks like it might be the actual title. My working title for the 1927 book was His Other Daughter (abbreviated in my files to HOD). It’s currently up for pre-order on Amazon and B&N as The Other Daughter, which does have rather more of a ring to it.

The Other Daughter follows the adventures of a young woman who returns home from her job as a nursery governess in France on her mother’s death only to discover that her father wasn’t at all what she believed him to be. Among other things, he’s alive. And an earl.

With the help of a ne’er do well gossip columnist, Simon Montfort, Rachel infiltrates the glittering nightclubs of the Bright Young Things, determined to find the clues to her own past.

More information– and a cover– coming soon!

Teaser Tuesday: Coming up in 2015….

I’ve just started work on my 2015 book, which will henceforth be known as The 1927 Book. (That sounded somewhat more descriptive than “Stand Alone #3.)

The first line? “Only a week, and already the cottage felt different.”

The 1927 book (which will presumably come out in 2015) is about a young woman who discovers, on her mother’s death, that the father she believed had died when she was a child is alive and well– and an earl. Not only that, but he has a whole other family: a wife, an heir, and a daughter just a few years younger than our heroine, Rachel. Still reeling with grief for her mother, furious at her father’s long betrayal, Rachel teams up with enigmatic Simon Montfort as she embarks on a mission into the heart of high society. But is revenge really what she wants?

More on the 1927 book as it unfolds!

In the meantime, we have Stand Alone #2, That Summer (aka The Victorian Book, aka The Preraphaelite Book) coming out on June 3, with Pink XI, The Mark of the Midnight Manzanilla, following on August 5th.
