September News and Goodies

Hi there Romance Readers:

I am just back from a trip Mr. H and I took to the UK. We spent five days in Bath and five days in London. We had a wonderful time and saw a lot of the sights. I’m adding a few pictures here for you. 

I also did a ton of research for my new series, set in Bath in the Victorian era. The series, called the Merry Misfits of Bath, is about three women who did not do well in the marriage mart in London and for different reasons, leave London and take up residence in Bath. Where, of course, they find their true loves.

The first book, The Bookseller and the Earl, is now available for pre-order with an October 22nd release date. This series will be in Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited for three months before being available at other retailers. I'm excited to reveal this new trio of books to you!

The Twinadoes are still enjoying summer weather even though they’ve been back in school for a month. I meet their bus every day since their mom is now working a full-time job. It’s fun having them for a couple of hours each day, but some days…..

Meet the Merry Misfits of Bath

The Merry Misfits of Bath is a brand-new Regency romance series. Each standalone story features a heroine who doesn't quit fit in but who finally finds her happy ever after with a hero who sees her through the eyes of love.

Three women turn their backs on London and the husband hunt and take up residency in the lovely town of Bath.

Miss Adeline Mallory, who has suffered from dyslexia her whole life, convinces her parents that marriage is simply not in her future and to release her dowry to her so she can open a bookstore.

Miss Charlotte Danvers escapes the reputation her mother built as the most expensive courtesan in London and supports herself by teaching young ladies all the finer points of the ton which will never accept her as one of their own.

Lady Pamela Manning cannot get through an entire sentence without stuttering. But she sings like an angel. She’s happy with her new life as a music teacher, even if most of her students have no ear for music.

They come together as friends and title themselves The Merry Misfits of Bath. But the question lingers: How long will they remain misfits?

Releasing 10.22.19

Miss Addie Mallory is finished with the husband hunt. After six London Seasons as a wallflower, she convinces her parents that she should be allowed to use her dowry to buy a bookstore in Bath where she can live her life the way she wants.

Lord Grayson, Earl of Berkshire, has never gotten over his deceased wife’s betrayal with his own brother. He plans to make his life all about his son, Michael, who is deaf. When Grayson’s sister-in-law serves him with court papers declaring Michael incompetent with the intention of having her own son named as Grayson’s rightful heir, he turns to Addie, a dyslexic bookstore owner, for help.

Addie takes a personal interest in helping the boy. However, as time passes, Grayson and Addie’s joint venture to keep Michael from being declared incompetent leads to feelings and desires neither one of them expected.

Or necessarily wanted.

Apple Cider Chicken Skillet

There are certain foods and flavors I crave this time of year, and apples are one of them. I found this unique recipe and decided to give it a try. Quick, easy and a definite taste of autumn!

4 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil — divided
1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs or chicken breast
1 teaspoon kosher salt — divided
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper — divided
1/2 cup fresh apple cider
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
3 medium firm sweet apples (like Gala) cored and cut into 1/2-inch slices
2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary — plus additional for serving

Heat 2 teaspoons of oil in a large skillet over medium high. Sprinkle the top of the chicken evenly with 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.

Once the oil is hot and shimmering, add the chicken to the pan, top-side down. Let cook 4 minutes, then flip and continue cooking until the meat is cooked through and reaches an internal temperature of 160 degrees, 3 to 4 additional minutes. Remove to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm.

In a small bowl or large measuring cup, stir together the apple cider and mustard. With a paper towel, carefully wipe the skillet clean. Add the remaining 2 teaspoons of oil to the pan over medium high.

Once the oil is hot, add the apple slices, remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and rosemary. Cook for 5 minutes, until the apples are lightly tender and begin to turn golden.

Return the chicken to the pan and pour the cider mixture over the top. Let cook for 4 to 5 minutes, until the liquid is reduced by half. Serve warm, sprinkled with additional chopped rosemary as desired.
