An Angel for St. Clair and An Inconvenient Wife are featured on Regan Walker's Best of the Regency this week. She has a lovely website and I am very pleased to have the opportunity to appear on her page. To take a look, double click on this link:
Oldies but Goodies--2017
My new year opened for with the re-release of the second Diana Hussey book, “An Angel for St. Clair”. I am so pleased to have this opportunity to bring Devlin and Angel’s story back for my readers. The tale of how these two meet and their subsequent journey through France has all the ingredients for a good story—a secret shipment of gold, a traitorous Frenchman, and a rescue of a boy, a duck and a maid! And I think you will agree that the new cover is lovely. Originally published in 2011 as “The Angel and St. Clair”, this book actually comes before “An Inconvenient Wife”. Although the books are quite independent of each other, those interested in what comes after “happily ever after” can learn more of St. Clair and his Angel in “An Inconvenient Wife”.
An Angel for St. Clair
A daring English lord—a lovely young woman--
a dangerous attraction
Fate brings them together on a perilous mission to France—Love binds them forever.
His mission to France doomed to failure unless he finds someone suitable to pose as his wife. Devlin St. Clair is quick to turn his discovery of a barely conscious woman to his advantage. An appealing waif, whose amnesia he considers his good fortune, she is perfect for the role.
Haunted by an unknown danger, injured and penniless, Juliette Deveneau agrees to accompany the compelling English lord to France. She needs his protection but she has only his word that he will explore the mystery of her past and that he has no knowledge of her prior to the fateful night that brought them together. Hunted by the traitorous Frenchman who abducted her, the unraveling secrets in Juliette’s past put more than her life at risk. They could tear her from St. Clair’s arms forever. Fate has thrown them together—but only love can turn this staged marriage into something real.
An Inconvenient Wife
An Inconvenient Wife” was reissued in January, 2016, with basically no changes except for some editing to clean-up some typos and tighten the prose a bit. Anne and Nicholas are two of my favorite characters. Their unexpected marriage comes with three children, so not only do they need to find a way to a true union between them; they have the well-being of these youngsters to consider as they take up the task of providing a loving home for them all. Sarah has suffered a crippling injury, French born Guy and Danielle have little English and must adapt to a new culture. A challenge indeed to weld these disparate personalities into a true family!
