Hey everybody, there's nothing like being late to the partay, is there? I know a lot about that these days. You see, I've been diagnosed with the flu and am in quarantine. Ordinarily, being forced to stay home because of snow (the south experienced that last week) or because of vacation, would be a very good thing. But add flu to the mix and well... let's just say, "Blah," fits here oh! too well.
Lethargy + illness = not priceless.
To showcase how awful this is, I'll share with you about last night. This month, my contemporary Lost Treasure, Captive Princess was the featured book at the Tillman Library. Last night, I was supposed to be present for the book club get together. Was I able to attend? ARRRGH! That be a NO. Did I want to attend? ARRRGH! That be a much delighted and shouted, "YES" as you can see below!
Behold the glorious gifties the ladies at the Tillman Library so graciously gave me, even though I couldn't be present! (Mwah! Throwing kisses their way!)
So... in honor of Duke's relaunch, I give you the new book cover and blurb. Woot!
CONSTANCE DANBURY is desperate to escape an arranged marriage to a man nearly twice her age. Her only hope is to board a merchantman bound for Spain to enlist her aunt's help. Her plans go awry when she’s captured by pirates. Even more alarming, her traitorous body longs for the man who’s returning her to England! Pushed into a marriage of convenience, she’s caught between two men—one owns her heart, the other is bent on stealing it.
PERCIVAL AVERY is a member of Nelson's Tea, an elite group assigned to protect England's shores at any cost. On a mission to avenge his sister’s death, Percy infiltrates the gang of cutthroats responsible. When his vessel attacks a merchantman, Percy must choose between vengeance and saving the life of his commander's niece. His only choice is to mutiny, but mutiny obliterates his well-laid plans. Forced on a new course that leads straight back to Constance Danbury, Percy has to make a decision—chase revenge or allow himself to love again.
So I ask you, if you could have a do-over, what would you wish for?
