My latest release is a paranormal erotic romance set in modern-day Atlanta but with visitors from the Regency period. Seems I just can’t get completely away from writing about the Regency period.
In The Hallucinatory Duke, our heroine, Amelia, is researching the Duke of Durbane (who disappeared under mysterious circumstances two hundred years ago) when she begins experiencing hallucinations that look very much like the portraits she’s seen of the duke. Unfortunately, he seems to assume she’s a courtesan and treats her accordingly. Convinced her research is behind his unwanted attentions, she tries to quit her job, but her boss instead arranges for her to meet his nephew, Jack, who is experiencing his own troubling visitations. Although Amelia at first tries to keep Jack at a distance, she soon realises their previous experiences are so intertwined, they’ll have to cooperate to solve a mystery from the past and discover what the future holds for both of them.
When Jack Durban accepted a transfer to Atlanta, he didn’t expect his uncle Ben, a professor and historian, to recruit him to help research the mysterious disappearance of the Duke of Durbane two hundred years ago. Nor did he expect to start getting ghostly visits from a woman wearing a ball gown who insists on pleasuring him even when he isn’t interested. When his uncle arranges for him to meet Amelia, he realises their experiences are related and that they have to find some way to placate the spirits that are harassing them before they can plan the future he’s determined to share with her.
This is one of those stories that almost wrote itself, and I ended up being constantly surprised by the twists and turns the plot took. I sincerely hope you’ll find it as much fun to read as I did to write it.
