Coming October 12th- an anthology featuring everybody’s favorite parasol-wielding lady’s maid, Fanny Price!

Sixteen years ago, lady’s maid Fanny Price believed in love at first sight. But that was before she met handsome horse trainer Nick Cradduck at a village fair. Nick swept her off her feet, then shattered her heart the very next day.

Fanny crossed all of England, finding a new post with the Astley family, just so she would never have to see that filthy blackguard again. But Nick isn’t going down without a fight. He tracks Fanny down at the Cooper’s Hill Cheese Rolling, of all places, on a bright, sunny spring morning not so different from the day they met. Now Fanny must decide if she’ll send Nick packing… or take a second chance on the only man who’s ever felt like her match.

My Favorite Mistake is a steamy novella featuring Fanny Price, Lady Caroline Astley’s intrepid lady’s maid. It can be read at any point after Book 1 in The Astley Chronicles. Please note that for the low-steam collection My Fair Regency, the love scenes are included, but are presented as bonus scenes.

Celebrate Regency romance all year long with this collection of short stories set during holidays and festivals throughout the four seasons! Fans of sweet romance will enjoy stories set from May Day all the way to Twelfth Night, featuring some of your favorite tropes—enemies-to-lovers, second-chance romance, forbidden love, friends-to-lovers, and more! The collection includes:

May Day Mayhem by Ann Chaney—Intrigue, death, and love come to Horsham-Upon-the-Thames as the small English village anticipates their May Day celebration. Home Office agents the Duke of Doncaster and governess Helen Stokes join forces to uncover a missing list of French agents before an enemy discovers it. Mired in May Day preparations while chasing hoodlums and gentry, Helen and Doncaster try to fight their mutual attraction in a romantic farce worthy of Covent Garden.

My Favorite Mistake by Courtney McCaskill—Sixteen years ago, lady’s maid Fanny Price was swept off her feet by a handsome horse trainer named Nick Cradduck. The very next day, he shattered her heart. But now, at the Cooper’s Hill Cheese Rolling and Wake, who should Fanny encounter but the man she crossed all of England to avoid… A second-chance love story featuring Fanny, the scene-stealing lady’s maid from How to Train Your Viscount!

His Damsel by Charlotte Russell—During her annual visit to Bartholomew Fair, Eliza Cranstoun is mistaken for a lady in distress when in fact she was attempting to avenge the honor of her cousin. Now, she insists Anthony Ripley, her savior, help her bring down a lordly scoundrel. Amidst the scheming however, the independent Eliza and the confirmed bachelor Anthony, discover that love finds even those who choose not to seek it.

When I Fall In Love by Cora Lee—The Harvest Festival is a chance for reunions and love, but perhaps not for childhood friends Sylvie Devereaux and Kit Mathison. When Kit returns to renovate the home he inherited, Sylvie’s financial burdens prompt Kit to propose a marriage of convenience. But Sylvie has always wanted to marry for love, and they don’t love each other…do they?

Remember by Shannon Donnelly—Over the years, Beatrice Foxton keeps meeting up with Andrew Cliffs on Guy Fawkes Night, but these two friends are separated by her family’s expectations for her to marry a well-born lord and his family’s background in trade. And, yet, they can’t stay away from each other…

The Aeronaut’s Heart by Regina Scott—Josephine Aventure was on her way to earning a place in England’s Aeronautical Corps until the dashing smuggler she’d once loved showed up. Etienne Delaguard risked much to help England win the war against France. Over a Twelfth Night masquerade, can a gentleman of the sea win the heart of a lady of the air?

Coming Soon… To Your Local Library?

The Sea Siren of Broadwater Bottom launches in just three days, and I couldn’t be more excited!

But when I went to check my pre-order numbers, I noticed something: quite a few people have had to cancel their pre-order in the last few months.

I totally get it! Inflation is INSANE right now.

But I would never want my readers to miss out! Which is why I want to mention that ALL of my books are available for purchase by libraries through OverDrive.

If you’ve never requested a book through your local library before, here’s a blog post with an overview of the process. I’ve done it at the Austin Public Library, and I found the process to be pretty straightforward. There was just a form on their website that I filled out (and hey- they even purchased the book I suggested!)

I’m even running a sale this December on How to Train Your Viscount, just for libraries.

So go forth, library fans, and happy reading!

Image of a mug that says "I want a duke in the streets, rake between the sheets" with a floral design.

I Accidentally Started a Zazzle Store

So the other day, we were giving away mystery boxes over on The Brazen Belles Facebook Group (have you joined yet? Because we do lots of giveaways over there!) I needed a little something for my box, so I designed this mug and ordered it through Zazzle.

It turns out that people like my mug! People were asking where they could get one, so I made it available for anyone to purchase. Then I added a few more romance-themed items.

So if you want to let the world know you’re on the hunt for a duke in the streets, rake between the sheets, check it out!

One note- a few people let me know that they couldn’t find the mug in my Zazzle store. I finally figured out why- Zazzle slapped a PG-13 rating on it!!! LOL- I can’t be mad, because they’re not wrong! So if you want the mug specifically, click here and confirm that you’re over the age of 13!

I was tremendously honored to be named the 2022 Lady of the Realm by my writing group, Regency Fiction Writers! This is an award given in appreciation of volunteer work (I have served as Coordinator of the Regency Academe for the past four years, and have also served on the Board as Programs Director.) I was honestly gobsmacked when Janna MacGregor announced my name, and I am so very grateful to RFW’s Board and Members for this wonderful recognition.
