About the Book: Lady Bethany would rather die a spinster than submit to marriage—and thus reveal the horrible secret she has harbored for more than a year

Lord Locke is far too immersed in his service to the Crown for romance, but Lady Bethany is in dire circumstances.
Indebted to Bethany’s late father and his close friend, the earl offers a perfect solution for both of them: a marriage in name only.
Perfect, if only they weren’t so irresistibly drawn to each other—and if Bethany hadn’t found herself falling in love with a man even more mysterious than his reputation. Perfect, until she unwittingly learns he’s protecting her from a threat to her life.
To Mark, Bethany is just another assignment, a woman he’s convinced is hiding something. His offer of marriage was meant only to make it easier to safeguard her.
But when the simple threat turns to attempted murder and treason, Mark realizes that Bethany has stolen his heart and he can do nothing less than throw himself into a race against time to save her, whatever the price.

Author Interview

  1. What is your favorite holiday? By far, Thanksgiving. For me it has all the nostalgia, appeal, and excitement of Christmas but without the financial strain and the craziness that comes from running myself ragged trying to get all the perfect gifts for everyone on a list that never seems to end. Decorating can be simple or elegant, which means I can still enjoy the holiday without killing myself. And best of all, there’s food. Good food that fills the house with mouthwatering smells and textures and beautiful colors. I love to cook and think I’m darn good at it, and my kids, their friends, and my husband’s family have never disagreed with me. In fact, I’ve created enough of my own recipes over the years to have developed my own cookbook, which I once joked I might someday publish. Who knows? Maybe I will.


  1. What is your most embarrassing moment? I was sixteen and went to the beach with friends. My mom actually allowed me to wear a bikini. I was a late-bloomer, and the top kept riding up but I was in denial and ignored it. I was standing knee deep in the water with a few of my boyfriend’s (male) best friends around me. I don’t remember where the girls were. Probably sunbathing. My boyfriend was further out in the surf than I wanted to go and I turned back. A huge wave slammed into me and knocked me down, and when I stood up, I not only did the bikini top get shoved up to my chin, the bottoms came down to my hips. There I was, standing there in all my glory, Boyfriend’s Friends staring at me. It was horrible.


  1. What is something unique about you? I think I’m just as happy alone as I am in a roomful of friends and/or family. When I was working, I met so many coworkers who just couldn’t imagine being home alone—or even with their small children—for long periods of time. They said they just got too bored. I don’t think since I discovered the joys of reading and writing that I’ve ever had a moment of boredom in my life. In fact, sometimes the chaos and workaday rush are too much for me. It exhausts me. I LOVE having time to sit and think, to dream, to put life into perspective. I don’t like having to face my inadequacies or failures or mistakes any better than anyone else does, but I need time to assess those, too, and I do it best alone. I have to be careful, because I can get depressed, too, which is when I really need other people. I love sharing life’s ups and downs and perspectives about life—even when we disagree. It helps me see other people’s viewpoints, and it allows me to step outside myself and help others who might need it.


  1. What is one food you will NOT eat? There’s a list, a short one, but a list of a few things I won’t touch. I HATE anchovies on my pizza. I LOVE sushi, but I won’t eat Uni, which is not just sea urchins. It’s the gonads of sea urchins, and that’s just beyond disgusting—and it stinks like a dirty diaper. I think octopus is gross and I consider it equal to chewing on car tires. And I’d probably starve to death if I had to eat canned peas, although I love fresh and frozen.


  1. What is the top hobby you do when not writing? Can’t get enough of it. I have an iphone, a kindle, a nook, two computers and bookshelves all full of hard and soft back books and ebooks. Sometimes the fam gets mad at me for having my nose pushed into them. I’m usually reading at least 3 or 4 books at a time.


  1. What is your favorite Animal? Hands down. Fell in love with the first one I ever saw in real life when I was little, fell harder when I got my first library book and my own first book about horses. My walls were decorated when I was a child with every poster or framed picture I could get my hands on about horses, and eventually I owned, rode, showed, and bred horses of my own. I used to wish I’d been born in an earlier era where I could have horses around me all the time. Now I’m glad to live in a time where I could ride anywhere for a few hours or a few days or weeks, depending on my interest, time, and resources, and then come home to indoor plumbing, a hot shower, air conditioning and the microwave. Such luxury, and only in our modern world is that possible.
