Release day: Georgina-Lady Archer’s Creed, book 2

Gbanner

I am thrilled beyond belief to share my new release, Georgina with you! This book is very special to me because it is a collaboration with my dear friend Christina McKnight. It is not often we get to work with other authors that we admire and I have the double blessing of calling her friend as well.

This all started when I came across an article about female archer’s during the Regency and Victorian eras and posted it to Face Book saying that I wanted to write a lady archer. Within second’s Christina saw the post and messaged me about what a great idea it was, and before long we had come up with the Lady Archer’s Creed.

I just know you will love our lady archer’s as much as we do, so allow me to introduce you to Lady Georgina Seton:

Georgina_600x900

A determined woman…

Wild and reckless, Lady Georgina Seton has plans for her future. Driven by the pain of past heartbreak, she will do whatever it takes to gain what she wants… and she is determined to control her own destiny. By becoming the best female archer England has ever known she will safeguard her future without the need to marry.

An ambitious man…

Born the spare, Felton Crauford is hell bent to secure his own future by amassing wealth. The mineral vein he discovered promises to be a boon, but there is one problem…the deposit runs into a neighboring estate. To his fury, the hoyden next door does whatever she can to get in his way. All while presenting a temptation he cannot ignore.

Felton and Georgina are caught up in an unstoppable yearning that threatens to destroy both of their plans. Worse, they are powerless to stop the white-hot desire blazing between them. Georgina must place her wager: Open her heart once more or risk losing everything.

Adeline, Lady Archer’s Creed Series (Book Three)

Adeline, Georgie, Theo, and Josie live each day by the Lady Archer’s Creed, which they developed during their school days at Miss Emmeline’s School of Education and Decorum for Ladies of Outstanding Quality. “Friendship, loyalty, and honor above all” is their mantra. Now, as they face the challenges that come with adulthood, the creed is more important than ever.
