I’ve received the cover for the latest Regency romance in the series The Eardleys Of Gostwicke Hall. It’s the fourth novel — Lady Jane’s story.
Clean Regency romance: a lady and a military man
Lady Jane was introduced in the third novel, The Lady And The Man Of Fortune: A Wicked Secret as a confirmed spinster. Her family suffered several reversals of fortune, so she earns her living tutoring debutantes for their first season.
Novel description, The Lady And The Military Man: Conquer My Heart
To a confirmed spinster and a military man, love is a fantasy. And a nuisance. Not to mention inconvenient, and ridiculous. But love may conquer them after all.
She’s a spinster…
Lady Jane Vernon needs money. The family castle in Yorkshire is not only falling down, it’s mortgaged. Although she was glad to give up her former career of preparing debutantes to take their place in fashionable society, Jane accepts two more young ladies.
With enough to worry her, Jane finds herself with an inconvenient tendre for a handsome rake, Major Baker-Cornhill. Long past the age of schoolgirl infatuations, she’s happy with her decision to remain unwed. She’s convinced that she just needs to put him out of her mind.
He’s a military man…
Kelly Baker-Cornhill is the fifth son of an earl and a magnet to women. On the orders of the Duke of Wellington, the major must find a French spy in the heart of the English government.
Can Kelly trick the monster Napoleon, now confined to an island in the South Atlantic, into revealing the name of the spy?
Of course he can.
With that done, he only needs to stop the delicious (but irritating) Lady Jane from making the biggest mistake of her life.
Lady Jane’s story will be available next month
