FORTUNE’S FLOWER: Passport to Romance Book 1 – “A lush, exotic tale of romance and adventure.” – Sally MacKenzie, USA Today bestselling author

Miss Lily Strathmore has made a desperate bargain. One last adventure abroad with her botanist uncle and his family, and then she will do as her parents bid and wed the proper (and boring) viscount her mother has selected as Lily’s ideal husband.

James Huntington is on a mission: retrieve his grandfather’s lost journals from the wilds of Tunisia, and win the estate and fortune he so desperately needs. This quest will be the making of him–or his ruin.

Thrown together on a botanical expedition, James and Lily’s attraction is immediate, and impossible. Despite every reason to keep their distance, the two find themselves inexorably drawn together as they race to reach a hidden valley before their enemies can bring all their dreams crashing down.

TO HEAL A HEART: Passport to Romance Book 2 – “Deftly combines danger, desire, and a deliciously different Victorian setting into a sexy version of Victoria Holt’s classic gothic romances.” – Booklist Reviews

Injured while on the Isle of Crete, Miss Caroline Huntington is taken to the island’s darkly enigmatic British doctor, Alex Trentham. At first put off by his gruff manner, she soon realizes there is far more to this handsome, wounded man than meets the eye.

Dr. Alex Trentham fled England, vowing not to return, but he never bargained for the beautiful and vivacious Caroline to enter his life. As she recovers, the carefully constructed walls around his heart start to crumble under the force of emotions he cannot allow himself to feel.

When danger threatens, Caroline must return to England, leaving Alex behind. But the distance cannot withstand the force of their longing, and Alex is drawn back to the woman he loves–and the tragedy in his past that could cost him everything.

Review and Interview with Publisher’s Weekly!

I’ve been interviewed in Publisher’s Weekly by Drucilla Shultz! Check out her article Want to Succeed in Self-Publishing? Do Your Reasearch: Tips from an Indie Author.

Publisher’s Weekly also did a review of Mistress of MelodyTake a look!

AntheaLawson_MistressofMelody_1400The entertaining and satisfying second entry in Lawson’s Music of the Heart historical series (afterSonata for a Scoundrel) introduces Jessamyn Lovell, newly famous in Victorian London as the “Gypsy Violinist,” and Morgan Trevethwick, the uptight Earl of Silverton. Morgan’s undercover work for Scotland Yard has him trailing Jessa’s guardian, Mr. Burke, a suspected blackmailer. Lawson creates a strong, sympathetic heroine in Jessa, who allows her unscrupulous uncle to profit from her performances in exchange for keeping her beloved, simpleminded sister safe from a lunatic asylum or a sinister marriage. Morgan has compensated for his wild youth by adopting a rigid propriety, but his search for a suitable wife is derailed by his attraction to Jessa. When she appeals for his protection from her uncle’s devilish plans, he struggles between accepting her offer to be his mistress and giving in to his growing realization that she is the one woman he wishes to marry. This well-paced, humorous love story will delight fans of daring Victorian cross-class romances. (BookLife)
