Beguiled by a Baron Coming This June!

May 22, 2017
June 16th, the 14th book in my Heart of a Duke series will go live at all sales channels! The hero, Vail Basingstoke, Baron Chilton you met in Book 13, To Enchant a Wicked Duke. Vail's heroine is a lady you've never met before. Her siblings are the villains from To Trust a Rogue and To Enchant a Wicked Duke.

When we meet Vail Basingstoke, Baron Chilton in To Enchant a Wicked Duke there are passages that speak to the ruthless people he dealt with in business. From this scene...his book was born...

“You are not a man who’s rotted to the core,” Vail persisted. “I know those men.” He tugged his chair closer and dropped his elbows on the table. “I deal with men whose souls are beyond redemption. You are driven by revenge…and that is an entirely different matter.”

As I wrote the Duke of Huntly's book, my mind was racing.  What exactly *does* his friend Vail do? Vail deals in the sale of...books. What you say? Books?! He deals with...*scholars*? 

Before I began writing Beguiled by a Baron, I'd come upon fascinating articles about those collectors touched by book madness. Yes, bibliomania is a real thing...and it fueled the idea for Vail's story!

I'm sharing a fabulous blog post by the brilliant Regency author, Louisa Cornell over at that gives a greater look at what book collecting looked like in the period!

I can't wait to bring you Beguiled by a Baron this June! Buy links will be coming soon!!

Huge Hugs,
