Work:

It is finally the release date for my Kindle Scout book, His Mysterious Lady! You can purchase it here.

It is 1813, and England is at war with America. Viscount Anthony Strangeways’ life is upended when he meets an American lady, Virginia Livingstone, His best friend who works in the Foreign Office thinks she is a spy, but Tony sees in her a rare openness and sincerity he has always wanted in a woman. Which of them is right?
After she suffers a ballooning accident Virginia loses her memory. A man she cannot remember meeting calls on her, informing her privately she is an American spy. Can she believe him? And, as an American patriot, can she really be in love with a English Viscount?

There is also a special $.99 promotion on the trilogy Spring in Hyde Park in which my novella, “The Disdainful Duke,” appears. You can buy it here.

In other work-related news, I have finished writing Not an Ordinary Baronet, the sequel to His Mysterious Lady. It is presently with the editor. I am hoping to have it published by Kindle Scout as well, but it will take some time, so in the meanwhile I am working on a Regency novella featuring a whole new bevy of eccentric characters!

Family:

Thanks so very much to all of you who have expressed sympathy over the death of our son, Greg. It has been a tender, difficult time, made a bit easier by close friends and family. He is laid to rest in a beautiful spot quite close to our house, surrounded by trees on three sides, with a lovely view of Mt. Timpanogos. He loved the mountains. His spirit has been quite close to all of us, reminding us that our family bond continues.

Fun:

July is going to be made very lively by the visit of our daughter Buffy and her husband and family of five children for three weeks. We plan visits to the Children’s Museum of Curiosity, the planetarium, the zoo, Thanksgiving Point Gardens, and one or two other places.
