When I wrote David and Lady Louisa’s story for a short story anthology, I’ll be honest: I couldn’t stop thinking about them. I couldn’t stop! One short story simply wasn’t enough – so once the anthology came offline, I immediately started writing an extended version of their story. It became a full book, and you can grab it right now, for a Christmassy feeling this spring!
Here’s the blurb for the book, and you can click here to grab it now…
A man who disappeared a year ago – and the woman forced to welcome a stranger at Christmas…
Lady Louisa Jarrold knew this Christmas would be different. With her father gone, none of the Advent traditions will be the same – but worst of all, her mother has been forced to take in a paying guest over the Advent period as their funds run low.
An Archduke for Advent. The absolute last thing she wanted.
But David Nelson is the last person she is expecting to see. After he gave Louisa his heart, and was forced from her home by her over-protective father, he’s only now had the chance to see her again.
A huge amount has changed – but has their hearts? Confined in the Jarrolds’ London townhouse during a snow storm with no chaperone, Louisa and David are forced to confront their fears and feelings during a long Advent night.
Can David justify his sudden disappearance? Will Louisa ever be able to accept the affections of a gentleman her father so sternly rejected? Is it possible to fight off their renewed attraction to each other – and can an Advent with an Archduke be the beginning of new traditions?
This is a steamy forced proximity Regency romance with a happily ever after, no cliffhangers, and part of a series that can be read in any order.
