I’m very excited to announce the launch of my second book with Crimson Romance. Embracing Scandal is the first in my series about the scientifically-gifted Jamison siblings. I hope you enjoy them all.

This book is set in London in the 1840s when there was a boom in railway expansion. Clipart - steam train

My heroine, Becca, is seen by the prudish women in London’s upper level of society as a freak, someone to be avoided. Yet gentlemen flock to her side because she is far smarter than them when it comes to working out which new steam inventions and rail lines to invest in.

Rail, steam and speed.

The thing I love most about historical romance is the research. Uncovering all the weird and wonderful things about the era I’m writing in. This time it’s the very early years of Queen Victoria’s reign when steam trains and their expansion were the big news of the day.

Lady Rebecca Jamison, a mathematical genius, saves her siblings from financial ruin by dabbling in the London stock exchange. When a greedy syndicate kills her friend and threatens her family, Becca begs assistance from Cayle, Duke of Sherwyn, her nemesis and previous friend.
As Cayle and Becca rekindle old passions, the duke uses old skills as a spy to protect his lady. He successfully defeats the illegal consortium, but can Cayle persuade a self-sufficient spinster to become his duchess?
