Historical Romance author Delilah Marvelle has just released the second book in her Rumor series, Forever a Lady. For more information, visit her website http://www.delilahmarvelle.com/
Summary Forever a Lady: Bernadette Marie Burton may be the richest widow in England, but like her dreams of finding true passion, her reputation is deteriorating. Cruel gossip, loneliness and hoards of opportunistic suitors have her believing Society couldn't be more vile....or dangerous. So when an attacker threatens her life, she finds safety in the most unseemly of places: the arms of a mysterious, Irish-American gang leader.
His fortune stolen, young Matthew Joseph Milton is done playing the respectable gentleman. In the slums of New York, only ruffians thrive. But from the moment he arrives in London and encounters the volumptious Lady Bernadette, he can't help but wonder about the finer pleasures he's missing. Or just how much he's willing to risk -- not only to bed her, but to prove his worth...
Mystery author Jean Sheldon’s most recent novel is Monet’s Palette. For more information, visit her website http://www.jeansheldon.com/
Summary Monet’s Palette: Rayna Hunt, an artistic, passionate soul, has a good sense of humor and a great outlook on life. When an accident crushes the hand that guides her brush, she loses more than her ability to paint. Using settlement money from the accident, Rayna buys a small warehouse and converts it into a classroom studio and a home for her and her daughter. For three years, she teaches others to paint and ignores the reality that without the color and light she lives to create, her spirit grows thin. Her daughter recognizes the emotional devastation and begins a successful crusade to convince her to paint. As she retrains the damaged hand, Rayna finds her quiet life disrupted again when she becomes a suspect in a forgery case. Her students, a diverse group of ages and personalities, take more than a casual interest. They, along Stratford Museum director and previous romantic interest Paul Lingstrum, and a Chicago Police detective recovering from her own loss, work to solve the crime.
