Yes, I said I wasn’t going to write any more romances. I also said I wasn’t going to write any more Traditional Regencies.
Clearly I can’t be taken at my word.
(Traditional Regencies, at least as I write them, are comedies of manners. Low in sizzle. High in humor. Set in early 19th century England.)
Some characters stay with me long after their story has been written. Zoe Loversall — first encountered in An Extraordinary Flirtation — is one.
Coming January 9, 2012 from Vintage Ink Press, in the various e-book formats, available at all the usual sites:
At seventeen, Zoe Loversall was the toast of London, with so many admirers that they were known as ‘Zoe’s Zoo’. At seven-and-twenty, she is a runaway Contessa, determined to experience everything life has thus far withheld.
Zoe returns to London, determined to seek her ruin and her revenge. There she sets her sights on Lord Quinton, a man notorious for the women he has bedded, the men he has killed in duels, the amount of liquor he consumes, the fortune he is doing his best to gamble away.
Lord Quinton is bored beyond bearing by females wishful to be rid of their virtue, and so he informs Zoe.
Zoe, however, is not so easily convinced.

And, because I had so much fun with all this, there will be a sequel, Quin, later in 2012.
