4 Stars from RT for Unbuttoning the Innocent Miss

July 1 readers can meet the first of  the Wallflowers to Wives heroines, Claire Welton, as she finds herself tutoring her long time secret crush, Jonathon Lashley, in French.  Jonathon must overcome his inability to speak the language in order to secure a coveted diplomatic posting to Vienna, AND he must marry the Season's reigning Diamond of the First Water, Cecilia Northam. His life seems perfectly arranged. The only problem is that he's falling for Claire, a sudden attraction that might cost him everything. Order now!

Summer Starts with Scandal at the Midsummer Ball!

My duet with Marguerite Kaye is now available! This is an interesting book to read because we each wrote a story set at the same party, among the same guests, using the same events to build the story around. It was so much fun to do, I'll tell you a secret: We are teaming up this October to write a Christmas party duet that will come out in 2017.

My story in the duet focuses on the roguish horsebreeder, Kael Gage, and the Season's jilt, Miss Zara Titus--who once had made an incredible match but now that the match has been broken must marry again in haste. Only,  Zara disagrees with the verdict. Why marry at all? Why not enjoy a little freedom? With Kael Gage on hand to oblige, that seems like a perfectly enjoy outcome as long as she doesn't get caught by her matchmaking mama who intends to see her married to the perfectly respectable and not nearly as exciting Richard Downing.  Her covert exploration into the sensual seems to be going well until the Duke of Brockmore steps in to make Kael an offer he shouldn't refuse, or should he?  Anything can happen when Midsummer magic abounds.

All About Romance likes Nolan in Rake Most likely to Seduce!

Caz Owen reviews "Rake Most Likely to Seduce"
" Bronwyn Scott’s historicals are at the hotter end of the HH/M&B scale, and she certainly doesn’t disappoint in that department; the chemistry between Nolan and Gianna is terrific and the love scenes are nice and steamy. Gianna may be a virgin, but as the daughter of a courtesan it’s easy to believe she’s a little more clued up about sex than the average virginal young woman at the time. Ms Scott’s descriptions of the sights and sounds of La Serenissima, from the canals and gondolas to the piazzas and markets are wonderfully evocative and round out the story nicely.
Rake Most Likely to Seduce is a quick and enjoyable read, and one I’d recommend to anyone looking for an historical romance with a dash of adventure in a setting that’s slightly different to the norm."
The other books in this series are Rake Most Likely to Rebel and Rake Most Likely to Thrill

Nolan Gray is coming! Dec. 15, 2016

The third book in the Grand Tour series is here! Nolan's story is out Dec. 15, just in time for holiday stocking stuffers.  The story takes place in Venice, during Carnevale, so it's a great time of year to buy and read this book! I think readers will enjoy the sophisticated interplay between Nolan and Gianna and the luscious Venetian backdrop, especially the visit to the fish market and Nolan's fascination with go risotto!

4 stars in Romantic Times Magazine for Rake Most Likely to Thrill!

Archer is here! The second Rakes on Tour book is in book stores August 2016. That means now!
Romantic Times gives Archer's story 4 stars: "The second tale in Rakes on Tour earns high marks with lusty romance...."

August is a perfect time to read this story.  Archer's tale is set around the Palio run every August in Siena, Italy, making it a great summer time read!  I've actually visited the track and I can only imagine the pandemonium it's seen through the ages.  If you click on the cover to the right, it will take you directly to order Archer straight from Harlequin.

Remember, if you read something you like, take a few minutes and post a review to Amazon as a way of thanking and helping an author. It's tough times out there right now for writers. The market is glutted with free books and loads of other things (I'll try not to rant here) and all that dilutes the market making it hard to find an author or a book unless you know specifically about them.

I think my personal reading world has gotten smaller instead larger these days without having a book store nearby. As a reader, I find I'm not trying new folks out as much as I'm just waiting for my favorite authors to put something new out. This,in part, is because the 'new' authors I tried out as a means of experimenting with all the increased access, didn't have quality products. Covers were unappealing and cheap, editing in the books was nonexistent or poorly done and didn't really give the impression of professionalism. This severely handicapped the stories.

I have to say, I used to read 50 books a year outside of my own writing and teaching needs. But now I think I probably read 25 because it's too hard to find something 'good.'  I think there are good books out there, I just can't find them.  I used to stop in at my grocery store's book section (I shop at Haggen) and I could always grab a book in a pinch if I couldn't get to Borders. But now, Haggen no longer rotates their books very frequently and they only carry 3 or 4 romance titles. I walked by the other day and I was like "I read that over two months ago." The last book I bought there was the Elizabeth Hoyt book. I bought early, the week it was released. I loved it.  But the key here, Haggen, is that I bought the book in May. I finished it before June, and it's still on the store's shelf. What am I supposed to buy now? There's the Hoyt book and there's two Sabrina Jeffries titles that they've carried since April--and I think those were not new titles released in April, so now my choices are: A book I've already read and two other books that have been out since the new year.  Assuming that it's an author I read, I have already blown through those titles--they are old.  Assuming it's not an author I like to read, I'm just not interested. So I leave the shelves feeling like there's nothing out there to read. This is the same case at our Walmart and our Fred Meyer--there is no turn over for the voracious reader.

Step by Step

There's a great program called Step by Step which is aimed at helping pregnant teens and unwed mothers. The program is currently attempting to purchase a property where these women can be safe and learn skills. What a wonderful place that could be, a place of hope and security.

This organization caught my attention for two reasons. First, because I belong to an organization that supports this cause and second, because my new series--the one being written this year--is called "Left Behind Girls" It's a regency series and one of the heroines (book 4) is unwed and pregnant throughout the series, facing the difficulties and stigmas of being an unwed mother in 1821.
