To authors, it often seems that the proverbial slow-sliding-molasses really does move faster than the whole book-publishing-process. Months and months of edits, rewrites, and galleys, and then, bang, it's publication day. Which means TODAY for When the Duchess Said Yes, now available everywhere, in print and electronically.
When the Duchess Said Yes is the second book in my Wylder Sisters series of historical romances, set in Georgian London. It's the second sister's story as well. As the daughter of an earl, Lady Elizabeth Wylder has been betrothed since infancy to the Duke of Hawkesworth. It's a splendid match for Lizzie, or it would be if her wayward duke would return home from Italy to claim her. Handsome and charming, Hawke is willing enough to marry the lovely, witty Lizzie once they finally meet. But being a bridegroom and a husband are two different things to irresponsible Hawke, and it's up to Lizzie to make him realize that the love – and desire - that he discovers with her are worth far more than all of his old bachelor pleasures combined.

There’s a big difference in how we use history. But we’re equally nuts about it. To us, the everyday details of life in the past are things to talk about, ponder, make fun of -- much in the way normal people talk about their favorite reality show.
We talk about who’s wearing what and who’s sleeping with whom. We try to sort out rumor or myth from fact. We thought there must be at least three other people out there who think history’s fascinating and fun, too. This blog is for them.
