Cover Reveal!

Sunday, June 25th, 2017

Here is the cover for book 2 in the London Beginnings series, called
The Heart’s Appeal. Isn’t it gorgeous!!?

The heroine, Julia Bernay, is standing in front of the Royal Courts of Justice. Very fitting since the hero, Michael Stephenson, is a barrister. The Royal Courts of Justice looks a bit like a cathedral, doesn’t it? But it’s another example of lovely Victorian architecture.

Here’s a bit of what the book is about:
Julia Bernay has come to London to become a doctor–a glorious new opportunity for women during the reign of Victoria. When she witnesses a serious accident, her quick actions save the life of barrister Michael Stephenson. He rose above his family’s stigma, but can he rise to the challenge of the fiercely independent woman who has swept into his life?

Look for it on March 8, 2018!

Here’s a bit of what THE CAPTAIN’S DAUGHTER is about:

When a series of circumstances beyond her control leave Rosalyn Bernay alone and penniless in London, she chances upon a job backstage at a theater which is presenting the most popular show in London. A talented musician and singer, she feels immediately at home and soon becomes enthralled with the idea of pursuing a career on the stage.

An injury during a skirmish in India has forced Nate Moran out of the army until he recovers. Filling his time at a stable of horses for hire in London, he has also spent the past two months working nights as a stagehand, filling in for his injured brother. Although he’s glad he can help his family through a tough time, he is counting the days until he can rejoin his regiment. London holds bitter memories for him that he is anxious to escape. But then he meets the beautiful woman who has found a new lease on life in the very place Nate can’t wait to leave behind.

Book fireworks

I’m so happy to announce the sale of my new 3-book series to David Long at Bethany House. The trilogy follows the stories of three orphaned sisters, now young women, who each find a new life—and love—in London. The book is scheduled for release in 2017.

As I love to do in my books, I’ve placed this series against the backdrop of real places and events. The first book, THE CAPTAIN’S DAUGHTER, is set backstage at the original production of Gilbert and Sullivan’s comic operetta “HMS Pinafore” in 1879.

If you like Pinterest, I’ve made a board here that will give you a “sneak preview”!

 



“Well-written, sweet, passionate and fun…”

Thursday, February 5th, 2015

I recently received a wonderful review for A Bride for the Season from the Historical Novel Society. They even mention Much Ado About Nothing, which makes the Shakespeare geek in me very, very happy!

Here’s an excerpt from the review:

“This delightful Victorian romance (set in 1853) concludes Delamere’s Love’s Grace Trilogy yet can just as easily be enjoyed on its own, independent of the series. There is something in this story that is reminiscent of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing, including the complexity of the characters and the amusing resolution of the plot. Well-written, sweet, passionate and fun—and all that without a single scene of graphic love!—A Bride for the Season is a most enjoyable read.”

I am happy to report that A Lady Most Lovely has won the 2014 Maggie Award for Excellence!

Maggie Awardee

It was truly an honor to receive this lovely medallion and wear it home. I’m so thrilled and blessed by the warm reception this book has received.

A reader pointed out to me that in A Lady Most Lovely, Tom gives Margaret the nickname of Maggie. A happy coincidence indeed!

Great Review for A Bride for the Season!

Wednesday, October 1st, 2014

The PubABrideFortheSeason weblishers Weekly review for A BRIDE FOR THE SEASON is out!

Here’s an excerpt from their review:

“The scintillating Love’s Grace trilogy conclusion (after A Lady Most Lovely) unearths the true character of one of the most roguish men in 1853 London…. The romantic dance between James and Lucinda sparkles with wit, intellect, and subtle desire in defiance of societal expectations.”

I’m so excited–can’t wait to share this book with readers!!!
