To Wed an Heiress - Goodreads Giveaway!

Just popping in to let everyone know that I have a new release, hopefully ready at the end of this month! It's a novel of romantic suspense set during the Regency era loosely based on the characters of the Norman Conquest.

There's a Goodreads Giveaway up for it (link down below), so if you want to enter and tell your friends, that would be lovely!

TO WED AN HEIRESS, by Rosanne E. Lortz

Haro Emison, thrust into his new role as Earl of Anglesford, discovers that his late father has left the family teetering on the edge of financial ruin. Intent on rescuing the estate, Haro abandons his long-held interest in his cousin Eda and searches instead for a wealthy heiress. But when pride and jealousy cause his plan to spiral out of control, he begins to wonder if he has made a dreadful mistake….

Eda Swanycke is enjoying her first season in London when her debut comes to a crashing halt. Jilted by her cousin, she suffers the indignity of watching Haro’s new intended lay claim to his person and position. But when a brutal murder upends the household with Haro as chief suspect, Eda must put her wounded pride aside, match wits with the investigator from London, and try, at all costs, to save Haro Emison’s neck from the gallows….

A New Historical Fiction Award - In Honor of M.M. Bennetts

M.m. Bennetts was an important piece of the historical fiction community on-line, both in the English Historical Fiction Authors group and the Historical Novel Society. When she passed away in August, it left an obvious hole--we missed the jokes about cakey, the scathing indictments of Napoleon, the warmhearted wit, and the passion for history.

In honor of M.m. Bennetts, several of her friends and admirers have established a new award, an award for a historical novel published in 2014 which focuses on literary quality and historical accuracy. The winning novel will be announced at the luncheon of the Historical Novel Society Conference on June 27, 2015.

Submissions are currently open until January 31. Go here to learn more information or put your book in the running!

Goodreads Giveaway of The Unexpected Earl

Today starts the Goodreads giveaway for the newest book put out by my publishing company, Madison Street Publishing. It's a Regency romance by Philippa Jane Keyworth, titled The Unexpected Earl. I did the editing work for this one, and I'm quite excited about the story.

We chose this quote for the back cover:
"I do not appreciate the direction of this conversation, my lord." 
"You do not appreciate most of what I say, let alone my presence."
How can you not want to read a book that has lines like that?!? :-)

The Goodreads giveaway lasts for a month, leading up to the official release date on September 20.

Much Ado about (Sea)Horses

My sister is getting married tomorrow, and the theme of the wedding is seahorses! I was due to have a post up on English Historical Fiction Authors the same day. It seemed a little too challenging to tie in seahorses with my period of interest, the Middle Ages, but regular, old horses of the land variety tied in quite nicely. Head on over to EHFA if you'd like to hear just how expensive those medieval horses were. If you were a peasant, the cheapest warhorse might have been twice as much as your annual salary....

I know, I know--not romantic at all. On to another topic. Happy wedding day (tomorrow), Ange! Glad you found your knight in shining armor (literally).
