I’ve been quiet here on the blog for the past few weeks, but I’ve had a good reason: the release day for One Kiss from Ruin, Book 1 of the Harrow’s Finest Five series, is this week on February 28th! As you can imagine, I’ve been a bit busy. But now I’m here to share the good news, a happy dance, and a special friend-of-the-blog preorder with you. (More on that in a minute.)
To the left, you can see the lovely cover of the book. It’s probably not the FINAL final cover, but that’s a story for another day. Today, let’s focus on the happy news. And just as a reminder, here’s the description of this, the first full-length novel, in the HFF world.
Once upon a time, they were in love. Then everything went wrong.
A gentleman marked by a scandal
Mr. Daniel Hallsworth lost his title and was driven out of England by claims of his illegitimacy. Now he’s returned to reclaim his title and his family’s reputation, which requires marrying a virtuous lady. He has his sights set on the woman he once loved. If only the lady would graciously accept his proposal.
A lady haunted by a secret
Lady Emme Radcliffe made a mistake that could destroy her family. To hide it, she’s withdrawn from society and dedicated herself to spinsterhood. Now the man she’s loved for ages has returned with an offer of marriage, but accepting it means risking her secret. If only the gentleman would kindly stop tempting her to fall in love.
A love that could ruin them both
With their own match an impossibility, Daniel needs Emme’s assistance to find a suitable wife, and she needs his help to thwart her father’s matchmaking. But each moment together brings them to the brink of passion, and every stolen kiss brings them one step closer to ruin.
Now for the preorder surprise…Today and tomorrow*, you can preorder your copy of One Kiss from Ruin for $1.99! I’m only sharing this with my newsletter followers and the Eight Ladies Writing blog readers. As always, if you do read the story, please consider leaving a review – it really helps get out the word about the book. And if you want in on some of the behind-the-scenes series materials including introductions to all of the HFF heroes, early information about upcoming release dates and discounts, an opportunity to read advance review copies (ARCs) and more, be sure to sign up for my newsletter, Nancy’s News.
That’s what I’ve been doing the past few weeks (and months, and really more than a year). How about you? Read (or written 😉) any good books lately?
