— All Governess Brides books are available in eBook!
Ever since I published A PIRATE’S WIFE FOR ME last month, a lot of you have been asking when the first four Governess Brides books would be out in eBook. We have been working on it, and now — they are!
Here’s a list of the twelve books in the series in order with the links to the sites. They are all (except MY FAIR TEMPTRESS) also available in paperback at your favorite local bookstore or online. Haven’t read the Governess Brides series? It’s my longest and most popular historical series. Find out why!
#1. THAT SCANDALOUS EVENING A spinster returns to London society to chaperone her niece and finds herself face to face with the nobleman who ruined her life. But she is no longer a cowering debutante, as he finds out to his dismay … and delight. Its humor makes this a reader favorite. On 6/30/15 the paperback will be available with this great new cover!

#2. RULES OF SURRENDER The Distinguished Academy of Governesses opens its doors to train young women for respectable occupations…unfortunately, Miss Charlotte Dalrumple discovers her first position is to teach Lord Wynter Ruskin, sadly uncivilized by his travels abroad, to take his proper place in society. Hint: it doesn’t go well.
Think The King and I with great sex and less singing. (New cover coming!)

#3 RULES OF ENGAGEMENT The Earl of Kerrich is in trouble with the queen because he’s unrepentantly disreputable. His solution: hire a governess and get an orphan to raise. That will make him appear respectable. Trouble: the kid is charming, he’s falling in love with the unattractive governess … but other than that, what could go wrong?
Oh, so much. (New cover coming!)

#4 RULES OF ATTRACTION Can there be anything worse than traveling far away into the lonely English countryside to take a new position and hearing rumors that the master killed his wife? … Actually, yes. For Miss Hannah Setterington knows the rumors are not true. (New cover coming!)

#5 IN MY WILDEST DREAMS Poor Garrick Throckmorton. He is a meticulous man who discharges with ease the duties of father, son, brother and spy-master. One attractive young woman surely could not overturn all his plans. He will not allow it. If necessary, he will nobly seduce her for the good of his family, his mission…and himself…
“Reminiscent of the classic movie Sabrina, this heartwarming Victorian-era treatment will please Christina Dodd’s many fans.” —Publisher’s Weekly
#6 LOST IN YOUR ARMS The husband who abandoned her has returned, broken, scarred and near death. As she cares from him, she discovers he has lost his memory…and this man is the husband she always wanted. Yet last time marriage cost her her happiness… This time love could cost her her life. (LOST IN YOUR ARMS is one of my personal favorites.)

#8 MY FAIR TEMPTRESS Miss Caroline Ritter, accomplished flirt, acknowledged beauty, and ruined gentlewoman, offers lessons to any rich, noble lord too inept to attract a wife. Please, absolutely no devastatingly attractive men with hidden agendas such as vengeful plots against evil villains—specifically not Jude Durant, the earl of Huntington, the most handsome, covert, and dangerous of all the aristocrats in Regency London.

Little does she know he is Michael Durant, long-lost heir to the duke of Nevitt, and he will defy anything, even fate itself, to claim her…
