I have a confession – I love happy endings. When I settle in to read a good book, I savor the journey to the happily-ever-after. A great love story brings joy to my soul, the sense that I’ve gone along for the ride with a hero and heroine who’ve managed to fallen in love and committed to each other despite the most daunting obstacles in their path.
My upcoming release, When A Lady Deceives, is a suspense-filled historical romance set against a backdrop of treachery and danger. An investigative journalist in Queen Victoria’s London, Jennie Quinn is a savvy, daring heroine who meets her match in disgraced detective turned criminal, Matthew Colton. Here’s an introduction to the story:
A woman with a secret and a dangerous man forge an undeniable passion.
In Victorian London, reporter Jennie Quinn employs deception as a weapon. Going undercover to seek justice for a murdered informant, she’s drawn into a powerful criminal’s seductive game of cat and mouse. Enigmatic former lawman Matthew Colton is as dangerous as he is clever, but the passion in his kiss is too tempting to resist. She aches to trust him, but she will not abandon her quest for the truth.
Colton is a man with secrets of his own. Thirsting for vengeance, the disgraced Scotland Yard detective has infiltrated the criminal world he’s vowed to destroy. Jennie intrigues him, even as she breaks down the barriers around his heart. He yearns to uncover her secrets—in and out of his bed. Driven to shield her, he’ll risk everything to protect the woman whose love heals his soul.
