Celebrating a Duke's Birthday

One year ago this month, Fortune’s Brides debuted in Never Doubt a Duke at fine online retailers around the world. It was the first time I tried putting my own books into print as well. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but it’s been a lovely year. The book earned a Gem award from Kathy’s Review Corner as one of the best books of 2018. It was also chosen by reviewers at Hope by the Book as one of the year’s best reads.

To celebrate the book’s birthday, I’ve put it for sale for 99 cents for one week only—May 30 through June 5. If you have a copy, you might let someone who would enjoy one know. If you haven’t read it, here’s a little about the book:

After spending the last ten years following her late husband on campaign, the irrepressible Jane Kimball finds herself badly in need of a position to support herself. Marriage holds no appeal; she’s not likely to find a husband like her Jimmy again. But when Miss Thorn of the Fortune Employment Agency offers her a post with the Duke of Wey, Jane feels drawn to help the lonely widower with his three daughters. He may seem a bit aloof, but Miss Thorn’s cat Fortune approved of him. Why should Jane doubt a duke?

Alaric, Duke of Wey, commands his staff, his tenants, and the halls of Parliament, managing vast holdings in England and across the seas. Why is it he cannot manage his own daughters? As an old danger rears its head, he comes to rely on Jane’s practical nature and her outspoken ways to navigate the waters of fatherhood. And when necessity dictates he take a wife, thoughts turn to an unlikely governess who might make the perfect bride.


Happy birthday, Duke!
