That this important post never went out! Forgive me if I am in error and you are getting it for the second time . . .
This is an exciting month for me as I have two releases. Just launched is The Baron and the Bluestocking, the third volume in the Regency romance trilogy, Three Original Ladies and Their Gentlemen.
In the world of the Regency, Christian Elliott, Baron Shrewsbury has it all. Helene Whitcombe has nothing except a prickly slate of feminist principles and a job as a schoolteacher in Lord Shrewsbury’s Orphanage for Girls. Pride on both sides separates them, but that doesn’t stop the fierce attraction that builds between this unlikely pair. Can the penniless vicar’s daughter humble the haughty baron? Or will her uncomfortable principles and his high place in society prove to be insuperable barriers to love?

Earlier in the month my novella “The Earl of Oaksey Takes a Wife,” was published in A Timeless Romance Anthology: European Edition. For those of you who have read Lord Trowbridge’s Angel, this is Melissa’s story.

It is a tremendous joy to watch my grandchildren grow and develop into fascinating human beings. As I continue to babysit Henry twice a week, I witness the growth of a giant. I think the four month old child is now the size of a one year old. He has a great sense of rhythm, definitely prefers Beethoven and Bach over Poulenc and Michael Buble. He squeals and laughs and is a continual joy. I missed him so much in Florence, they had to send videos.
Jack (7) is now deep into Greek mythology and wants a young reader’s version of The Odyssey for Christmas. Micah (3) continues to have a rich fantasy life. Today he said, “Hydraulic Cylinders! I take you INTO THE DARKNESS!” What are hydraulic cylinders? Nathan (1) is speaking now and completely disassembling the kitchen on a daily basis. We can’t wait to see them all at Christmas!
Our long-awaited vacation to Florence and Zurich finally came. You can still see David’s fantastic pictures on this blog.
Here is my favorite:
I really enjoyed the trip to Zurich to prepare for writing Waltz II. I can picture Amalia there now with her family. I know the walks she will take, where she will go for coffee (Starbuck’s of course) and dinner. It is a beautiful city, about as different from Florence as it can be.
It was especially wonderful to take this vacation with my husband, David, and celebrate our 41st anniversary. He was so especially understanding and helpful and loving. Florence is wonderful, as always, but anywhere is wonderful with him.
