To celebrate Triumph and Treasure’s release last week, I’m giving away a digital copy  to one commenter.


A disillusioned Scottish gentlewoman.

Angelina Ellsworth once believed in love—before she discovered her husband of mere hours was a slave-trader and already married. To avoid the scandal and disgrace, she escapes to her aunt and uncle’s, the Duke and Duchess of Waterford. When Angelina learns she is with child, she vows she’ll never trust a man again.


A privileged English lord.

Flynn, Earl of Luxmoore, led an enchanted life until his father committed suicide after losing everything to Waterford in a wager. Stripped of all but his title, Flynn is thrust into the role of marquis as well as provider for his disabled sister and invalid mother. Unable to pay his father’s astronomical gambling loss, Flynn must choose between social or financial ruin.


When the duke suggests he’ll forgive the debt if Flynn marries his niece, Flynn accepts the duke’s proposal. Reluctant to wed a stranger, but willing to do anything to protect her babe and escape the clutches of the madman who still pursues her, Angelina agrees to the union. Can Flynn and Angelina find happiness and love in a marriage neither wanted, or is the chasm between them insurmountable?

 Enjoy a new excerpt!

“Waterford, I should like to sign the marriage settlement tonight.” Flynn crossed to the bell-pull. He gave the cord a firm yank.

“Tonight?” The duke jerked upright, his keen perusal shifting between Flynn and Angelina. He rubbed his hands together. “Yes.” He nodded eagerly. “Splendid.”

Chatterton entered. “My lord?”

“Please send for Mr. Fleming. Have him wait for me in Father’s office.”

The butler regarded the duke warily. “Yes, sir, at once.”

Flynn guided Angelina to the settee. Apprehension lingered in her eyes. Because she would marry him? Because Renault pursued her? Because she feared Waterford would somehow roust their plan and put a stop to their private agreement? Or, had their kiss caused her anxiousness?

Likely, a combination of everything.

He yearned to take her into his arms and assure her she could trust him, that he would protect her as fiercely as he would the other women he cared for.

Settling beside her aunt, Angelina folded her hands primly in her lap as if she waited for Flynn to explain what transpired between them.

Rather than sitting, he strode to the fireplace. Hands clasped behind him, he faced the others. “Given the Frenchman may have already learned of Mrs. Thorne’s whereabouts, she has agreed we should journey to Scotland tomorrow and marry with due haste.”

He sent Grandmamma a silent message.

She signaled her understanding with a barely perceptible nod. She would wait to learn the particulars.

Thank God, his grandmother wasn’t given to meddling or histrionics.

“You’re sure of this?” Her Grace laid plump fingers on Angelina’s hand. “This is what you want to do?”

Her gaze trained on Flynn, Angelina inhaled deeply. As she released her breath, her shoulders drooped the merest bit. She nodded once. “I think it the most prudent course of action.”

“If you’re certain, my dear.” Mouth pursed, the duchess tilted her coiffed head regally and stared hard at Flynn, an unusual intensity in her gaze.

After a disquieting moment, the line of her lips softened. Moisture glinted suspiciously in Her Grace’s eyes. “She’s a priceless treasure, my lord. Treat her as such.”

Flynn acquiesced by bowing his head.

    Thanks for the extra excerpt, Collette!

    I’m temporarily grounded from buying more books. My family seems to think they’ll run out of present options – silly people. 🙂
