EEEEE, the cover’s been finalized for True Pretenses (Lively St. Lemeston #2, coming in January 2015)!

I love it SO MUCH OMG OMG OMG. And doesn’t that guy remind you a little of David Duchovny?

Never steal a heart unless you can afford to lose your own.

Through sheer force of will, Ash Cohen raised himself and his younger brother from the London slums to become the best of confidence men. He’s heartbroken to learn Rafe wants out of the life, but determined to grant his brother his wish.

It seems simple: find a lonely, wealthy woman. If he can get her to fall in love with Rafe, his brother will be set. There’s just one problem—Ash can’t take his eyes off her.

Heiress Lydia Reeve is immediately drawn to the kind, unassuming stranger who asks to tour her family’s portrait gallery. And if she married, she could use the money from her dowry for her philanthropic schemes. The attraction seems mutual and oh so serendipitous—until she realizes Ash is determined to matchmake for his younger brother.

When Lydia’s passionate kiss puts Rafe’s future at risk, Ash is forced to reveal a terrible family secret. Rafe disappears, and Lydia asks Ash to marry her instead. Leaving Ash to wonder—did he choose the perfect woman for his brother, or for himself?

Warning: Contains secrets and pies.

new In for a Penny coverHi everyone! This is a spoiler-friendly discussion and questions post for In for a Penny. I’d love to hear anything you have to say about the book! And if there’s anything you want to ask me (about the book, about writing the book, about characters in the book, about what happens next, anything really), go for it.

Thank you all for giving what I do meaning—a book isn’t REALLY finished until someone reads it.
