I love rereading childhood classics and I was reading C&CF one day and I thought to myself--ya know what? This is kind of a romance novel plot! The rich, eccentric magnate who requires an heir.

And that's how my first book was born. There's a scandalous duke who requires an heir, a strong heroine who has had a difficult life, and lots and lots of very steamy...drinking chocolate. What? What did you think I was going to say? :)(less)

You know I would so love to give Patrick his own book but my editor and I decided to start a whole new series and jump forward several years. Hopefully someday I can write a novella for Patrick and his son Van so that they can have their happily-ever-after! xo ❤️(less)
