Good morning everyone. Today we start off with book winners.

Ladies you will be contacted by the author.
I’m being plagued with technical difficulties this morning. First McAfee blocked my email program. I finally got that up. Now my computer can’t see my iPhone so I can download the pictures I’d planned for today.

Here is the cover. What do you think?

Friday Lord Rutherford, the hero of The Secret Life of Miss Anna Marsh is being grilled, er, invited for tea at Susana Ellis’s Parlor
Here is my publisher’s blurb followed by a short excerpt. Check out this wonderful cover quote. I can’t thank Sally MacKenzie enough!
“Let yourself be seduced by this sexy mix of spies, smugglers, and happily ever afters.” —Sally MacKenzie
Since she was a young girl, Anna Marsh has dreamed of Sebastian, Baron Rutherford asking for her hand in marriage. But that was in another life when her brother Harry was alive, before she vowed to secretly continue the work he valiantly died for. Now as Sebastian finally courts Anna, she must thwart his advances. Were he to discover her secret, he would never deem her a suitable wife…
Sebastian has always known Anna would become his wife someday. He expects few obstacles, but when she dissuades him at every turn he soon realizes there is much more to this intriguing woman. Somehow he must prove to her that they are meant to be together. But first he must unravel the seductive mystery that is Miss Anna Marsh…
Anna met his gaze coolly. “Lord Rutherford, pray, what brings you here?”
“Oh, Anna dear,” her mother said. “Lord Rutherford has very kindly offered to help by escorting you to Charteries for Lady Phoebe’s wedding.”
Anna raised a brow and stared at Sebastian for a moment before turning to address her mother. Lady Marsh reminded Anna of a wraith. Her mother’s dark brown hair was still unmarked by silver. She always dressed in flowing gowns and draped gauzy shawls around her shoulders, giving the impression she would blow away if one breathed hard enough. Mama desperately wanted Anna married and could not understand how it was she’d reached the age of one and twenty still single.
As objecting to Sebastian’s escort would do her no good, Anna kept the smile on her face. “Yes, Mama, very kind of him.” She glanced at him and thought she saw the remnants of a smug look on his face. “How do you think of these ideas?” she asked sweetly.
His lips twitched slightly. “I really couldn’t tell you, Miss Marsh. It just popped into my head. We are both attending the wedding after all.”
It did not auger well for him that he had used her mother to get his way. “Yes, we do have that in common.”
