And I bet you thought I was no longer blogging about my writing with all the recent non-writing posts! ;o)
Back in 2012, I spotted a charity anthology where the theme was leather and I was in! I’ll be honest, I thought it would end up *ahem* more spicy than sweet due to the theme, but it turned out to be quite lovely indeed. Thus was born the first version of A Most Unusual Courtship. I was so proud of that little story! The characters then inspired a subsequent novel, but that’s another blog post in about two weeks.
From the blurb:
Gerald Smithson, master leathersmith, has ample reason to distrust mages. He doesn’t take their commissions and steers clear of them wherever possible. When Lord Leo Harris tries to hire him, Gerald sends the mage packing. Unfortunately, the simple act of Leo entering his shop brings Gerald to the attention of a Dark mage who kidnaps him as a chance to get to Leo. Now Leo must not only rescue Gerald, but find a way to win his heart. It will be an unusual courtship, to say the least.
Courtship will be re-released – longer and revised, but just as sweet – through Dreamspinner Press on 4/13/15 and offered up for free! If you want to preorder the ebook to get your hot little hands on it, you can go here.
I hope you love this magical visit to an alternate Victorian London as much as I loved writing it!
