Christmas in September!

It seems like just yesterday that I shared my cover for TUDOR CHRISTMAS TIDINGS with you. And here it is, just days away from the UK release and a mere month before the US release. This Christmas novella anthology is available in the UK any moment and September 29th in the US. Amanda McCabe and Jenni Fletcher are my fellow authors and each of us chose to set our tales in the reign of a different Tudor monarch.



Christmas At Court” is my contribution and I could not resist tying the story to a Royal Wedding. This time, the wedding is the one that created the Tudor Dynasty by uniting Lancaster and York, the Red Rose and the White.

But that wedding was no sure thing and neither is that of my hero and heroine. Sir John and Lady Alice are bound together, but in a court teeming with scandal and deception, neither is certain that the other can be trusted. Life, death, and the future of the country depend on the answer.

In “Secrets of the Queen’s Lady” by Jenni Fletcher, the lady-in-waiting to Anne of Cleves is unexpectedly reunited with a handsome—younger—diplomat at the palace’s festivities! And in “His Mistletoe Lady” by Amanda McCabe, Catherine seeks help from a mysterious Spaniard to free her father in time for Christmas!

The book will be released in October in the United States and the United Kingdom, both in print and e-book format.  (Actual on-sale dates vary, with some editions available in September.) There will also be an Australian release. You can pre-order now in the U.S., at least. Click on the cover and it will take you to more detail on the Books page.

So if you are ready to tuck a little present under your tree – something to look forward to – click on the links! And until then, stay safe. And remember that in a romance book, there will always be a happy ending.
