I've been working on a locations map of Georgian/Regency London.
Currently I’ve input info from a few Georgian blogs, The Georgian Index, The Survey of London, and several books about historic homes. I plan to add info from The Epicure’s Almanack (an 1815 book about hotels, restaurants, chophouses, and pubs) and a couple of period guide books that I have either print or Google Book copies of.
If anyone has further suggestions for specific locations or sources, please let me know!
So, Just What Is That Guy’s Name?
A reader recently pointed out a hugely embarrassing error in my series. A minor character in the first two books, who become a true secondary character in SEDUCTION, undergoes a name change along the way. He’s Malcolm Reeves in the first two books and suddenly he’s Marcus Reeves. And nobody caught it. Not me. Not my beta readers. Not my editor. Not my copy editor. Not the two outside copy editors I have review my galley. NOBODY.
All I can say is that all those emails begging for me to write Marcus, the Viscount St. Audley’s book (the poor left out hero waiting in the wings from my days as Kalen Hughes) must have caused some kind of mental gymnastics that just transformed Malcolm into Marcus in my head and prevented me and everyone else from noticing until now.
My sincere apologies to anyone I confused along the way and if I ever get the rights back I'll correct the error and make all the books match.
Sorry, I'm working on getting my rights to this series back, and until I do, there won't be any new books in the League of Second Sons.
League of Second Sons, Book 4
I'm currently working on book four in The League of Second Sons, which I'm tentatively calling Ripe for Revenge. It’s Malcolm Reeves’s story, and it’s a secret baby book (I know, don’t faint):
Running has always served Caro Frazier well. It worked when her parents disapproved of her chosen groom, when her husband took umbrage at his young wife's social success, and when circumstances forced her to flee London altogether. But when her past comes back to haunt her—in the delicious form of Malcolm Reeves—running is the last thing on Caro's mind.
Malcolm Reeves never expected to see—never wanted to see—Caroline Frazier again, not after he saved her when her husband cast her off and then she abandoned him too. He certainly never expected to discover her living in a quiet, rural hamlet with a child who is unmistakably his. Whatever her reasons for betraying him, she's his now, and Malcolm is ready for a little revenge …

A No Rules for Rogues Novelette
An impossible challenge … Eleanor Blakely is all too aware that her reputation dangles by a very slender thread, unfortunately, she’s found herself in the midst of a delicious series of wagers with a consummate charmer, and she can’t seem to stop herself from saying yes to every wicked proposition. Whatever twist of fate has kept his best friend’s sister on the shelf is a mystery to Viscount Wroxton, but when the inveterate little gamester suddenly catches his attention, she’s entirely is too fascinating to ignore. The fact that she has five enormous brothers is hardly worth thinking about—she’s thrown down the gauntlet, and he has no intention of losing, whatever the cost…
With a bonus short story, Three Courtesans, which was originally written as a blog post for the Twelve Days of Christmas (I got Three French Hens).
