When I first started writing my Nelson’s Tea Series, I had no idea Lord Simon Danbury and Gillian, Baroness Chauncey would spin off into their own little novella series. It wasn’t until a wonderful reader suggested Simon have his own book, that the seeds of inspiration sprouted in me noggin’.

Readers are extraordinarily valuable to authors!

What began with one golden research snippet — Admiral Nelson desiring tea even on board ship — became code for mercenaries under Nelson’s command, Nelson’s Tea. And so, in MY LORD ROGUE, Lord Simon Danbury and Gillian, Baroness Chauncey, are forced to deal with fate throwing them back into each other’s lives. The year is 1801, a time of intrigue and danger forcing them apart. But as time passes ~ 1801-1805 ~ and events take place in DUKE BY DAY, ROGUE BY NIGHT and THE ROGUE’S PRIZE, unruly forces bring Gillian and Simon together in a hot and steamy flash of passion, intrigue, danger, and betrayal in MY LADY ROGUE.

I think this is one of my best covers yet, me hearties! What think ye?

All that Simon and Gillian have done has led to this moment… Will it be too late?

Talented actress, colleague, and spy, Gillian Chauncey’s devotion to Simon Danbury and his men is tested when captivity and death invade Nelson’s Tea and a traitor is discovered in their midst. In a true test of courage, Gillian must face the ultimate challenge when Simon’s life is threatened — saving the man she loves.

Simon serves England and Admiral Nelson with distinction, sacrificing his own happiness by choosing duty over passion. When a series of unfortunate events occur and a mole infiltrates Nelson’s Tea, threatening his men and endangering the woman he loves, Simon must choose to lead the clandestine organization or risk losing everything.

I don’t have a set release date on this book yet, but look for it sometime the end of 2014. Oh, I can’t wait for ye all to read this one!
