Do Clothes Make the Duke?

I’m working so hard to catch up, I haven’t had much time for blog posts lately! This one is easy though. Our duke has been living on the edges of civilization along the Mississippi after being beaten, robbed and left for dead. The miscreants have been caught and he’s to testify. The prosecutor is determined […]

Knee Deep in September

I hope you had a wonderful summer. I’m not sure where mine went! It certainly was a busy one. The garden and I battled lack of rain, and about broke even. The Upright Son, final book in The Ashmead Heirs came out June 28. Since then I completed another novel (Duke in All But Name […]

Delia counts herself ineligible on both counts. Besides she […]

Has the Wind Died Down?

I’ve been blown hither and yon for the last several days and not just because the urban wilds of the east coast were hit with a major winter storm! I’ve been running all over social media. I have two more Facebook “takeovers” this week and two more guest blog posts, but they are all (at […]
