Thank you for joining me today! I also want to thank Fresh Fiction for inviting me to be on their blog. I’m excited talk about the release of HOW TO TEMPT AN EARL, the first book in my Raven Club series. Who doesn’t love an accidental marriage theme in a romance? I know I do and that’s what I chose to write for my historical romance, HOW TO TEMPT AN EARL. My hero, Ian Swift, had been at odds with his family and left to open a notorious gambling club in London. For ten years, he’s lived life on his own terms. But when his older brother dies, Ian unexpectedly inherits the earldom. Ian hasn’t associated with the beau monde, other than the aristocrats who visit his casino and lose money at his gambling tables, in many years. He needs a mentor. Then Miss Grace Ashton walks into his club one night. Grace is the daughter of a baron who is a reckless gambler. In exchange for her father’s debts, Ian strikes a deal with Grace.

Who Knew Detroit Could Be So Sexy?
Author Guest , Giveaways / April 12, 2018

There are lots of fun things to do in the Motor City. My favorites include things like NOT getting mugged and NOT witnessing a gang killing because that’s all I hear about in today’s news. City gone bankrupt. The terrors of 8 Mile. A whole lot of empty urban landscape ready for filming the newest zombie apocalypse movie. But Detroit still has a lot going on that’s fun. Guess which ones of the following are true. A great big tire on I-95. It was a Ferris wheel at the 1964/5 New York World’s Fair, but now has tread where the gondolas used to be. Motown Museum. A small shingle clad building where Motown’s unique sound was produced from 1957-1072. Any Marvin Gaye fans out there? The crumbling ruins of The Grande Ballroom, a place that once hosted jazz legends and psychedelic rock bands. The Detroit Children’s Zoo. Don’t worry. There’s a new exciting one on the opposite side of Belle Isle, but the remains of this one are still visible. Michigan’s Central Station – Hundreds of trains passed through there each day…once upon a time The Heidleberg Project – One man’s attempt to bring beauty to an urban landscape by…
