Greetings Duchesses and Friends,
Today I’m here to celebrate the release of my first holiday story! It’s an e-novella and it’s book #3.5 in my Secret Brides series called It Happened Under the Mistletoe and it comes out on Tuesday 10/29!
It’s the story of Oliver Townsende and Cerian Blake who meet at a holiday house party where hijinks quickly ensue. There’s a sassy Christmas cat, a few fun and saucy holiday parlor games, and some mistletoe-related kissing that will scorch your jingle-bell toe balls right off!
Here’s a bit more about it!
When Oliver Townsende escapes to his friend’s house for a Christmas party, he intends to avoid the hordes of marriage-minded misses who have been dogging his steps in London ever since he inherited a dukedom. He soon learns a bit of Yuletide peace and quiet is too much to ask for. When he encounters Miss Cerian Blake, who’s dodging her own unwanted set of admirers, the two decide to join forces and fake an infatuation to keep their suitors at bay. But when a bough of mistletoe becomes involved, will their Christmastime prank turn into a love to last all seasons?
Available for pre-order now only $1.99!
So, tell me, have you ever been caught under the mistletoe? Do give us all the juicy details. One lucky commenter will win an e-copy of It Happened Under the Mistletoe!
