Enjoyable romance where prim and proper English widow meets a charming and teasing American sea captain / heir to a dukedom

I sat down to read this book and was finished just over three hours later. During that time I was completely involved with the characters and the story.A NECESSARY HUSBAND is more than just a story between a man and a woman, although Lucinda and Garrett are worthy adversaries in the game of love.

(from website)I hate writing bios. They always seem so cut and dried. But you came to my website to learn more about me, so here goes.

I’m the oldest of four sisters, and we are full-blooded Irish on our father’s side. Oh, and our house had one bathroom. If you have any questions about where I got my flair for drama, just imagine that scenario on a Saturday night when four teen-aged girls need to g...more
