Woo-hoo! Doesn’t that tagline grab you by the cannons? I’m so excited to announce that today is MY LORD ROGUE, A Nelson’s Tea Novella’s release day!!! Welcome to the world, Lord Simon Danbury and Baroness Chauncey! Huzzah and Hoorah!!!
If you’ve ever wondered what Nelson’s Tea is, why it exists, where it started, and what it means, this is the book for you! A reader once asked me if Simon Danbury would ever get his own book. Funny, isn’t it, how seeds are planted into one’s brain? Until that time, I’d never intended on writing a book for Simon Danbury. MY LORD ROGUE is the seed that sprouted and became this novella. In fact, I love this book so much, I’m writing another Simon and Gillian book set in 1805. You see, an 1801 novella wasn’t enough room to really cover Simon’s and Gillian’s relationship. There are three books in the Nelson’s Tea Series spread over 5 years. So… MY LORD ROGUE is a book about beginnings. It’s also a reunion story, the force propelling Nelson’s Tea into perilous waters from 1801-1806 in the Napoleonic Era along England’s southern coast.
Here’s a blurb:
Gillian Chauncey, Baroness Chauncey, is a master of disguise, trained by her expatriated husband, a former French royalist, in the arts of espionage. When a dangerous life or death secret lands in her lap, she’s thrust into a perilous world of ticking clocks and desperation, arrowing her directly into the arms of the man who arranged her marriage.
Lord Simon Danbury is no ordinary nobleman. He’s been tasked by Admiral Nelson to organize an elite group of clandestine first sons willing to sacrifice all to protect England’s shores. When an assassination attempt is made on Nelson, Simon isn’twhat poses more danger, the enemy or the masterfully seductive Gillian.
I hope you’ll love Gillian Chauncey’s strength and Simon Danbury’s sense of purpose. They are two dedicated characters who put everything on the line.
