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.
