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.

The Rakes are Coming!

Hello Readers,
As summer reading season gears up, I am gearing up too, to meet the summer demands of readers.
The Rakes on Tour series releases the first two books in the four book series June 2015 and August 2015:  The Rake Most Likely to Rebel and The Rake Most Likely to Thrill.  I am so excited about this series! I have wanted to do a Grand Tour series for awhile now and it's finally here. So, those of us who can't quite make the European hot spots this summer can live vicariously through our Grand Tour heroes.
Book #1 Rake Most Likely to Rebel, features fencer Haviland North and is set in Paris, the usual first stop on the Tour. May I crow with delight for a moment? Romantic Times gave  Haviland 4 Stars!!

Book #2 Rake Most Likely to Thrill features horseman, Archer Crawford and is set in Siena, Italy where Archer has ambitions to race in the dangerous Palio.

Book #3 Rake Most Likely to Seduce features the gambler, Nolan Gray and is set in Venice at Carnevale.

Book #4 Rake Most Likely to Sin features the playboy, Brennan Carr who goes native  in the Peloponnese region  of Greece.

I hope you will love my new boys as much as I do!!

Speaking of new boys, I also have the first book in a brand new series out at Harper Collins called Reckless Rakes!  This three book series has a Regency X-Games theme to it, featuring an ice racer, a carriage racer, and a secret dueling society.  The first book:  Reckless Rakes; Hayden Islington is out this summer on digital, perfect for  a vacation download on your kindle, kobo or nook!

It's been a blessed year to be Bronwyn Scott with three series releasing. We kicked off the year with the three book series Rakes of the Caribbean (also great summer reading if you missed them first time out), and now we head into summer and fall with the four book series, Rakes on Tour. Plus the new Harper Collins series to boot!! Thanks to all the readers who make it possible!! I appreciate you.

Drop me a line and let me know what you're reading!

Swim a thon 2015 is here!

For the next month, I'll be supporting the King Aquatic Swim Club's annual fundraiser, their swim-a-thon. I'd like you to consider supporting it too. This program is ranked as one of the top 12 programs in the country, on the same list as North Baltimore and other Olympic quality programs.  The money raised helps create scholarships for kids who need financial help, funds travel for our team, and pays for relay entries.

If you'd like to help out, the first 10 donors to contribute $10.00 or more will receive the 2015 Bronwyn Scott duet, Rakes of the Caribbean.  Here's the link, just be sure to leave your address after you donate so I can send copies to you!
Thank you for your support in advance.
