A Scandalous Wager - is there any better kind?

Huzzah! I have some exciting news. Firstly, my debut novel - A Scandalous Wager is nearly here.

It will be officially released on the 8th of November, 2014 through Escape Publishing as an e-book. I am very proud to be part of the Escape/Harlequin family.

And the book should be available for pre-order through Escape and Amazon on the 1st of October, 2014.

Today I am revealing not only my cover but my blurb as well. I hope you like them both.

Isn't he gorgeous?

And now for the blurb.

Notorious Widow Lisbeth Carslake, Countess of Blackhurst was acquitted of her husband's murder, but no one believes in her innocence. Known as the Black Raven, bringer of bad luck and death, she is eviscerated by the gossips and mocked in the clubs. She’s also the subject of London’s most scandalous wager.

Oliver Whitely, Earl of Bellamy, needs money, but it takes more than a few drinks to take on The Black Raven Wager. He finds himself drunk, at her house, and – more surprisingly – inside, and agreeing to a business proposal at the end of a fire poker. She will let him win the wager, and he will help find her husband’s killer before the killer finds her. But business agreements don’t mean trust, and Lisbeth certainly doesn’t trust Oliver, her body’s reaction to him, or her heart.

Love may be the biggest gamble of their lives, but is it a wager their hearts can afford to lose?

Stay tuned for more exciting news.

Until then - only use good words.
