Title: An American Duchess

  About An American Duchess: Set on a crumbling English manor estate during the height of the Roaring Twenties, an American duchess must decide how much she's willing to risk for the life she truly desires…

It's 1922, and New York heiress Zoe Gifford longs for the freedoms promised by the Jazz Age. Headstrong and brazen, but bound by her father's will to marry before she can access his fortune, Zoe arranges for a brief marriage to Sebastian Hazelton, whose aristocratic British family sorely needs a benefactor.

Once in England, her foolproof plan to wed, inherit and divorce proves more complicated than Zoe had anticipated. Nigel Hazelton, Duke of Langford and Sebastian's older brother, is as austere and imposing as the family's ancestral estate. Still reeling from the Great War, Nigel is now staging a one-man battle against a rapidly changing world—and the outspoken Zoe represents everything he's fighting against.

When circumstances compel Zoe to marry Nigel rather than Sebastian, their heated quarrelling begets passion of another sort. But with Nigel unwilling to change with the times, will Zoe be forced to choose between her husband and her dreams?

  1. Thanks so much for introducing An American Duchess!

    I was thrilled to be able to write this book as it blends my favorite things—the 1920s, a stately English estate, a wounded hero with secrets, a strong American heroine who shakes up a staid (but gorgeous) duke. Plus I’m a huge fan of Downton Abbey and loved writing in that era.
    I’ll be posting up some quotes, fun facts, and I’m thinking up some giveaways for the days to come.

    Here’s a small teaser excerpt from An American Duchess:

    Zoe gasped. Langford kissed her passionately. Steam must be rising from her skin.

    She let her raccoon coat slide down her shoulders. The deeper he kissed her, the more she wanted. She crackled and sizzled like live wires. She would scream if he didn’t touch her.

    His hand stroked her, lightly squeezed her through the thin cup of her brassiere. She wriggled on the seat. His mouth moved from hers, and nuzzled her ear, her jaw, her throat. Her moans drifted into the night.

    She ached for him.

    She turned in the seat, and slid over to him, then she got on him, straddling his lap. She cupped his face, her palms on his strong jaw, and kissed him deeply.

    Langford pulled back. His face looked agonized. Moonlight glinted on the long scars that ran down the side of his face. “No, this has to stop.” He slid to the driver’s side, lifted her off his lap, and placed her down so she was in the passenger seat.

    He turned the key—the engine sputtered, then roared. “I cannot seem to resist you. But this isn’t right.”

    Pressing the clutch and the gas, he turned the car and drove back out to the highway. Langford drove well, his right gloved hand on the leather-wrapped steering wheel, his left scrubbing his jaw or rubbing his temple.

    When they reached Brideswell, he stopped in front of the house. “You can get out here. I will take your car back to the garage.”

    “I’ll go with you.”

    His gorgeous blue eyes looked so haunted. “No, you will not. You do not like me, Miss Gifford. I would advise you to stay far away from me in the future.”

    Happy Reading!
