Presenting Lady Gus

Cover of Presenting Lady GusThe tale of how Presenting Lady Gus came to be is this: I sat down and started writing what I thought was a medieval, but the characters were speaking in Georgian English. I put it aside after 30,000 words and basically forgot about it. That’s me!

A few months ago, when my fellow writers at LoveHistoricals.com needed another story for our latest boxed set, I really wanted to be in it. I was poking around my pc and there was the folder labeled “Augusta.” I quickly realized that I had been sorely mistaken and that this was much closer to a Regency than a medieval. Soon, the tale of Augusta and Rolf flowed, and with another 18,000 words written, the story practically finished itself. (Oh, there may have been some hair-pulling and brow-furrowing on my part.)

The Love Historicals boxed set is not out yet, but Presenting Lady Gus is.

Synopsis:

Augusta Brenville needs a husband, preferably a wealthy one, to save her beloved estate. Unfortunately, holding onto her inheritance seems impossible when nary a suitor remains standing, nor alive for that matter! That is until a seasoned captain arrives, daring and intrepid . . . and a tad uncivilized for the lady’s liking.

For the sake of owning Thornbury Castle, Captain Rolf is willing to marry its rather awkward yet endearing mistress, regardless of her penniless state. First, however, he must thwart an assassin with a penchant for poison, fire, and arrows. Can he keep both himself and his betrothed alive until their wedding day?

I love the cover created by Philip Ré of REX Video Productions. Even more so because the happy couple is standing in front of the real Thornbury Castle featured in their story.
