A Duke for Midwinter
This is my brand new Victorian-set holiday novella celebrating the best of the season – Christmas trees, mulled wine, misunderstandings, and, of course, true love~

Miss Cecilia Fairfax dreads the upcoming holidays. Between caring for her elderly father and managing a household barely out of mourning, she has no time for the softer things in life.
Liam Barrett, the Earl of Tarrick, is certain he will not accept Marcus Fairfax’s invitation to spend Christmas at the Fairfax family’s estate – and the man’s tales of a resident ghost have nothing to do with his decision.

Of all the blessings of the season, sometimes the most unexpected is love…

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)

She is filled with wild passion… Jessamyn Lovell, the “Gypsy Violinist,” is the newest musical sensation among the ton, but she and her sister are caught in the grip of an unscrupulous uncle, who uses her performances as a cover for his crimes.

He has scoured the recklessness from his soul… The Earl of Silverton, Morgan Trevethwick, has spent ten years restoring his family’s reputation in the wake of scandal–and it has taken every ounce of his self control.

Together, they will be one another’s ruin… When danger looms, Jessa risks everything to seek Morgan’s help. He cannot refuse a woman in distress, though she threatens to overturn the future he has worked so hard to secure. Even worse, she relights a fire in his heart–one he had thought extinguished forever.
