It’s been almost a year since I last posted anything here. I’ve been hard at work. Here are some things you can look forward to during the rest of 2015.
Re-release of Scandal Before Sunrise (Book 1 of The Weekly Scandal series). This novella was previously released as part of the Scandalous Summer Nights box set last summer and has since been expanded. (Late July/Early August 2015)
Release of Lady of Intrigue (the sequel to Lord of Regrets). If you wanted to know what happened to Marcus’s half brother, Gerard, this is the book for you! (November 2015)
Release of The Scandalous Memoirs of Lord Sin (Book 2 of The Weekly Scandal series). (mid December-tentatively)
I’m also part of a box set/ historical series that will be releasing in the new year. I’m very excited about this one and look forward to sharing more about it in October!
You may also have noticed that my website looks a bit different. It’s also missing a bunch of pages, so please be patient if you can’t quite find what you are looking for yet. Feel free to drop me an email or find me on Facebook or Twitter with any questions about my books and future releases!
Over the past few years, one of the most recurring questions I am asked is: When are you going to release a full-length historical romance? Well, guess what??? (Those of you on my mailing list already know the answer to this question! And those of you who aren’t on my mailing list, why aren’t you?) Today my first full-length historical romance releases from Entangled Publishing.
This is one of those books of the heart. And it took a village to bring you all one 335 page book. But I’d like to highlight one person, and that’s the book’s editor, Gwen Hayes, because she’s the reason the book is out in the world.
I present to you:
Despite the love and sensuous addiction they shared, Lord Marcus Templeton could never marry Natasha Polinoff. Not while he remained under his grandfather’s vise-like control. But when Natasha announces her out-of-wedlock pregnancy – which would destroy his inheritance – Templeton explodes into a rage. One that sends Natasha running into the unforgiving night, never to return…
Now five years have passed, and Lord Templeton has finally found his beloved. And this time, the viscount will have her.
However, Natasha has settled into a new life with her young daughter. Lord Templeton’s arrival fills her with terrible fear… and undeniable longing. He has come to claim her. Yet even as her body still longs for his touch, her anger still burns. She is no mere possession. But Lord Templeton will do whatever it takes to bring her back into his arms and back into his bed. Even if it means resorting to blackmail to make Natasha his wife…

Scandal Before Sunrise
Abigail Billings is a bad girl. She loves fun and excitement and the sort of wit that flows after a few glasses of wine. And boys, she definitely loves boys. Though three years ago she fled town with scandal on her heels, now she’s back in London. She’s determined to make a respectable and advantageous match before everyone knows that there is nothing behind her father’s title but more scandal. Everything would be going rather well if only The Honorable Elliot Jones weren’t so determined to bring her to ruin.
As the younger son of an earl, Jones did his duty fighting for England and then happily put duty aside. He’s far from ready to settle down. It’s the fast set that draws him in, the one that pairs poetry with wagers and women with gossip––the same gossip that tells him there’s more to the beautiful and painfully straight-laced Abigail than her high neckline suggests.
She’s a contradiction in a pale muslin dress. Behind every modest smile, he sees the sharp gaze, the trapped free spirit. It’s a lark at first to make Abigail crack. But music and moonlight leads to love and romance, and soon Jones wants nothing more than to convince this very scandalous lady to be his most honorable wife.

It’s release day for Wed at Leisure, and the blog tour is going on for the rest of the week, but first, Woo’d in Haste and Wed at Leisure were mentioned in Sarah MacLean’s June Washington Post column! Here’s a snippet:
Darby is known for beautifully textured stories, and these novellas are no exception. Kate and Bianca’s journey is not simply one of romantic love, but of sisterly love as well.
MacLean’s column is a now a regular monthly feature and a wonderful resource for lovers of romance.
