It feels a bit presumptuous to have a “My Books” page when I haven’t had anything published yet, but we’re thinking optimistically.
Here’s what’s in the works:
A Man of Character
Thirty-five-year-old Catherine Schreiber isn’t looking for love—not after being abandoned at the altar six years ago. Besides, keeping her ailing bookstore afloat takes up all her time, and she’s perfectly fine with that, isn’t she? When three different men ask her out in short order, however, she’s not sure what to think…especially since something about them seems eerily familiar.
A startling revelation—that these men are fictional characters she’d created and forgotten years ago, fantasies she’d concocted to get through loneliness and loss—forces Cat to reevaluate her world and the people in it. Because these characters are alive. Here. Now. And most definitely in the flesh.
Her best friend, a romance novel junkie craving her own Happily Ever After, is thrilled by the possibilities. The power to create Mr. Perfect—who could pass that up? But can a relationship be real if it’s fiction? Caught between fact and fantasy, Cat must decide which—or whom—she wants more.
A Matter of Time
Nobody would blame widowed twenty-nine year old doctoral student Eliza James for giving up on the idea of Happily Ever After. After all, she’s suffered more loss than most people do in a lifetime. But Eliza’s convinced her own hero is still out there, waiting for her, just like in the beloved romance novels she devours. Every girl deserves a Darcy, right?
Only Eliza doesn’t dream of a modern day prince: she wants the whole Regency experience. She can’t imagine anything better than waltzing in the arms of a duke at a grand ball, before being whisked away for a tete-a-tete in a corner of a garden, or the very private seat of a well-sprung carriage. However, finding herself thrust back two hundred years into the arms and life of actual duke Deveric Mattersley—thanks to a magical medieval manuscript—has Eliza realizing some fantasies aren’t all they’re cracked up to be, especially when her prince proves himself less than charming.
Deveric Mattersley, Duke of Claremont, has no interest in marriage. He blames himself for the death of his wife. Determined to atone for his sins, he decrees himself content to focus on the running of his family’s estates, and on raising his son. Until the mysterious Mrs. James appears. Who is she? What does she want? And why does she make Dev’s blood run hot in a way no woman ever has?
