BUT...that said, I will tell you that this book put me through the ringer. I don't think I've ever written two characters who better deserved a happily ever after...from each other. I don't want to spoil what's to come, but here are the answers to some of the questions people have been asking about The Day of the Duchess!
1) YES, you will see more of the Dangerous Daughters/Talbot Sisters/Soiled Ss. Lots more of them. You will see them in carriages and at country houses and in places that you can visit yourself in the real world.
2) NO, you will not see Alec & Lily from A Scot in the Dark. They are too busy doing it in Scotland. But YES, of course, you will see King & Sophie from The Rogue Not Taken -- it would be tough to ignore them, as Sera & Haven's story begins there for so many of us. (Aside: You will also see some of the boys from The Fallen Angel!)
3) You will get the whole backstory for Sera & Haven here. I promise. I wouldn't dare leave you hanging on that front.
4) There is an American, too.
For more, you can read the first chapter of the book at my website! Thank you, as ever, for reading!
Here's a little teaser for those of you who are waiting so patiently! As you can see, the Duke of Warnick (the titular Scot in the Dark) has opinions:
He raised a brow. “It's a children’s love story.” Lillian gaped at him. “It’s Romeo and Juliet.” “Babes without any sense. Killing themselves over infatuation.” “It’s considered one of the greatest love stories of all time.” He lifted one shoulder and let it drop. “Unless you know better.” “And I suppose you know better?” she scoffed. "Without question." He leaned forward in the darkness, allowing his brogue to thicken. “You want romance, you ask a Scot.”
But the question is...will you? Let me help you decide. If you enjoy the following things, you might like Sophie &Well...I mean, of course I like it.
But the question is...will you? Let me help you decide. If you enjoy the following things, you might like Sophie & King's story:
* Romancing the Stone (or *any* enemies-to-lovers story) * Roadtrip romances * Men who don't know what's hit them * US Weekly, People Magazine, Defamer.com, or that sidebar of "news" on your Facebook page * Any of the following: Beyonce, the Kardashians or the Middleton Sisters * The idea of wildly-sexy afternoons in hedge-mazes * Heroes who end up realizing their idiotic mistakes and end up on their knees for love

I love it all so much that I've since become friends and critique partners with her (we even wrote a short story together in Dark Duets). So...I might not be the most unbiased of reviewers.
This book. THE LOVE I HAVE FOR IT IS REAL, YOU GUYS.
Maybe it's because I'm a sucker for a revenge story (ahem -- A Rogue by Any Other Name). Or maybe it's because I adore shipwreck stories. Or maybe it's because I like girls who take lemons and make badass lemonade (ahem -- Never Judge a Lady by Her Cover). Or maybe it's because I like sexy sexy will she forgive him/won't she forgive him romances. I'm not sure. But this book is my favorite of Carrie's from start to finish.
If you're interested in YA romance -- or have someone in your life who is -- or if you're (like me) missing the TV show Revenge -- this is a perfect read for Summer 2015. ...more

Fin & Marrill are awesome, and the book is the kind of adventure that makes you wish you had a 7 year old around to read with. I can't wait for my little one to grow up so we can read this together. ...more
