Can love heal a wounded army officer who doesn’t believe it exists?
Lady Rachel St. Clair has witnessed how powerful love can be, thanks to the example her brother and wife set, and she won’t settle for anything less. At a house party, Rachel meets an officer returning from the Peninsular War and believes she may have found love, thanks to their clandestine midnight lessons in kissing.
Major Evan Drake, Marquess of Merrick, witnessed his father murder his mother and believes love doesn’t exist. He’s returned from combat wounded in both body and soul. When he meets Rachel he changes his mind about love, drawn to the raven-haired beauty’s spirit. Yet Rachel devastates him by rejecting him before he can declare his feelings for her, sending Evan into a downward spiral that almost ends in death.
Nursing her broken heart, Rachel continues her search for love the next Season, though her thoughts linger on those midnights with her marquess.
Will Evan be able to regain Rachel’s trust—and open his heart to love?

Why did you write this book?
This is the second book of my St. Clairs’ trilogy. Rachel saw (in Book 1) Jeremy and Catherine fall madly in love, and she’s ready to do the same—but can’t find anyone she’s attracted to. When a marquess offers to teach her how to kiss, she’s on the road to finding everything she desired . . . and more.
What is your favorite genre to read?
I love reading all kinds of fiction, especially romance, suspense, and thrillers.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Miss Elizabeth Bennet is my idol!
What are you working on at the moment?
I’ve finished up the last of my St. Clairs and am hard at work on three novellas (where the St. Chairs will make appearances). I’m delighted to be writing the love story of one of Rachel St. Clairs’ suitors, the Earl of Merrifield. Poor Merrifield lost the girl to a marquess but kept Rachel and her new husband as friends. Now, Rachel is ready to find Merrifield a wife of his own!
What books will we see from you in coming months?
Embracing the Earl (The St. Clairs Book 3) is a June 22 release. The three novellas will follow later in 2019.
