Fate Plays a Hand! When Amelia Fitzailwyn, Duchess of Kensington, is orphaned at a very young age, she must leave home and travel to her new guardian's estate.
She embarks on the journey with her beloved governess, Rachel: wishing all the while that her Uncle William would somehow rescue her. To her delight,
he does! Uncle William is her new guardian...and he has two sons!
Amelia happily settles in to life at Havenwood Manor with her new family.
The Stage is Set!
What are the servants whispering about? Have they noticed all those heated looks between Uncle and Rachel? Amelia sees mysteries everywhere...
and would solve them all if her cousins would leave her alone long enough to do her research! She wishes John, the eldest, would keep his nose out of her affairs and poke it back in his theme book, 'How to be the Most Boring
Personage in the Realm'. Alex, the skirt-chasing hypocrite, irritates her even more: going on-and-on about her one little rendezvous with Simon.
Time Will Tell
When it turns out 'Uncle', is not really her uncle, Amelia begins to see the irksome boys in a new light. In fact, she plans to marry one of them! Will John stop straining his steely, grey eyes reading and see her for the woman she is? Or will Alex stop pulling the curl out of her hair long enough to notice the sheen of it as it wraps around his finger? Solve the mystery dear reader, as you enjoy this delightful tale of a young woman's coming of age in Georgian England.

About the Author
My books are much more interesting than me! Having said that, I'll share that I adore 18th century English history and imagine I'm transported back to that period when I'm writing. I make every attempt to represent the period authentically when I write of it and don't pull punches. As a result, you may find some of my content unusual, but I believe strongly in representing likely characters of the period realistically.
HOW DO I CREATE MY CHARACTERS?
Character inspirations come to me after reading of a particular event, during the period, that interests me. I often awaken from a sound sleep with a poem or segment of a story telling itself to me quite clearly. I jump up (scare my hubby half to death) and run to my desk to write it all out. At other times, mostly when I'm gardening or just allowing my mind to wander, a character will reveal itself to me with such clarity that I feel as if they are real. When I write of them it's more a sharing of their thoughts then a telling, if you understand my meaning.
HOW I KEEP GOING...
I'll close with this tidbit...a segment from my dream the other night. Don't be afraid to dream. Fear is a rabid beast with gaping mouth, blood-drenched teeth and a voracious appetite for dreams.
Dream on, dear reader!
