Today is the very last day you can enter the Three Weeks to Wed Pre-order Contest.

On release day, everyone who entered will be able to access the prologue to Three Weeks to Wed. Please follow this link to enter. http://sites.kensingtonbooks.com/ellaquinn/

The prologue brought tears to my eyes when I was writing it. I hope you love it as well!

Three Weeks to Wed hi res

In the first book of her dazzling new series, bestselling author Ella Quinn introduces the soon-to-be Earl and Countess of Worthington—lovers who have more in common than they yet know. The future promises to be far from boring…

Lady Grace Carpenter is ready to seize the day—or rather, the night—with the most compelling man she’s ever known. Marriage would mean losing guardianship of her beloved siblings, and surely no sane gentleman will take on seven children not his own. But if she can have one anonymous tryst with Mattheus, Earl of Worthington, Grace will be content to live out the rest of her life as a spinster.

Matt had almost given up hope of finding a wife who could engage his mind as well as his body. And now this sensual, intelligent woman is offering herself to him. What could be more perfect? Except that after one wanton night, the mysterious Grace refuses to have anything to do with him. Amid the distractions of the Season he must convince her, one delicious encounter at a time, that no obstacle—or family—is too much for a man who’s discovered his heart’s desire…

This is the first Sunday News in a while, and I’m sad to say, the last. As you all know, this year I start my new print series. I am also writing novellas that will release in between the big book releases, and I’m writing a novella series that I will self-publish. Despite my best efforts, I am unable to keep up the writing schedule and blog with any regularity. Not to mention, my lack of consistent internet. To give you an example, I have an internet connection at the moment only when the boat swings a certain way.

I have, however, joined the lovely group of ladies at Embracing Romance, where I will blog once a month. I hope you will join me there.

I will continue to post new releases, pre-orders, and contests but if you are not on Facebook with me, I encourage you to sign up for my newsletter. Actually, I encourage you to sign up for my newsletter in any event.

Now for the good news. Congratulations to Natasha for winning a copy of Sandra Master’s book.

Most of you know that I have two releases coming in the very near future. The first is a novella, A Promise of Love, which is book #1 in my novella series The Trevors. Those of you who read Miss Featherton’s Christmas Prince, the last book in The Marriage Game will remember Damon’s father, the nasty, horrible duke. More than one reader truly wished I had gotten rid of him. But I needed him for the series. After all, I could not write about how his many children escape the despot when I’d already done him in. Apologies to you, but needs must.

Passionate+Promises+Final+BOX+1000x640A Promise of Love is part of a box set, Passionate Promises which releases on February 15th, and I’m having a pre-order contest to help launch the series. To enter, you must provide a proof of purchase by completing the form. When the book releases, everyone who entered will receive a private link to the prologue of the next book in the series! I hope all of you will enter and spread the word to your family and friends!

PREORDER HERE: Amazon | Barnes & NobleKobo | iBooks

Three Weeks To Wed reviseOn March 29th, what my publisher calls an April release, Three Weeks to Wed, the first book in The Worthingtons, hits the shelves, or if you read in ebook format, will magically download to your device. So, I’m having another pre-order contest sponsored by my publisher. On release day, everyone who entered will be able to access the prologue to Three Weeks to Wed. Please follow this link to enter.

I promise you that neither of these prologues will be available again at any time; no matter what promises or bribes I receive or dire threats are made. They are strictly for those of you who pre-order and enter the contests.

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter and a great rest of the week!

We have a lot of book winners, so let’s start there.



Congratulations to bn100 for winning a copy of Cara Elliott’s book, Liette for wining a copy of Collette Cameron’s book, Beverly for winning a copy of Jenna Jaxon’s book, Patricia for winning Jacki’s Delecki’s book, and Anna for winning a copy of Christi Caldwell’s book!!

We’ve been on the move, but I’ve been making sure to carve out time to write the first novella in The Worthingtons, and do some thinking about the third book in the series. This is a very rough draft from the third book.

Measles?” Lady Louisa Vivers exclaimed. “All three of them?”

Lady Charlotte Carpenter sank onto the sofa in the parlor they shared. “Yes, Theo, Mary and Philip. According to Jane and your mama, the others have already had them.”

“Will that put off Grace and Matt’s trip to Worthington?” Grace, Charlotte’s sister had recently married Louisa’s brother, the Earl of Worthington. All ten children, except Charlie who was at Eton,  and Louisa’s mother, were living in the Carpenter family townhouse across Berkeley Square from their house while it was being renovated.

Charlotte grimaced. “There is no choice. Renovations must be started in the schoolroom there as well.”

Both she and Charlotte were half way through their first Season. Louisa chewed her lip. “Well, I suppose we should write notes excusing ourselves from the entertainments we’d planned to attend.” Rubbing her forehead, she glanced at the writing table. “What a bother. Why did they have to choose now to fall ill?”

Charlotte let out a peel of laughter. “That is almost exactly what Matt said.”

lady beresford's lover_ebookIn other book news. Lady Beresford’s Lover has finally come out on pre-order. I haven’t done a pre-order celebration in a while, so it is past time. The first person who posts any of the buy links from anywhere in the world, will receive a copy of Lady Beresford’s Lover when it releases.

Ella Quinn’s bachelors are quite sure of what they want in life—and love—until the right woman opens their eyes…

After a painful heartbreak, Rupert, the handsome young Earl of Stanstead, has decided that when it comes to love, avoidance is best. Until he meets a woman who makes him forget his plan—and remember his longing for a wife and family. Yet he senses that she too has been hurt, though she attempts to hide her feelings—and more—in the most baffling and alluring way. Intrigued, Rupert is willing to play along, if winning her is the prize…

Crushed by her late husband’s scorn, Vivian, Countess of Beresford, believes she is monstrously undesirable. Sadly childless, she has moved to London resigned to a solitary life. Still, when she encounters Rupert at a masquerade ball, her disguise as Cleopatra emboldens her. Convinced he doesn’t recognize her, she begins an after-hours affair with him, always in costume—while allowing him to innocently court the real her by day. But when Rupert makes a shocking choice, will Vivian be able to handle the truth?…

I also have a couple of  favors to ask of you. If you haven’t signed up for my newsletter, please do. I’d also love it if you could like my author page, provided, of course, that you haven’t done it already. http://www.facebook.com/ellaquinnauthor.

Sadly, we had to leave St. Martin for a while, but we did stock up on wine, cheese, and a couple of baguettes. Leaving St. Martinla boulangerie et patisserie 2015-03-28

Welcome to Sunday News!! I’m a little late getting this up today because I was at the beach looking for my glasses. For those who don’t know, a rogue wave hit me when I was water walking a couple of days ago, ripping out my hair clip and stealing my prescription glasses. Unfortunately, I didn’t find them.

Let’s start with book winners.

Congratulations to Belinda Thum for winning a copy of Julia Tagan’s book, A Question of Class!

Apparently there is a bit of a problem with folks understand my Facebook contest. There are several buy links that still have not been posted. The rules are that you must be the first to post a buy link. It doesn’t matter where in the world the link is, for example, it could be Amazon France. Also, the link must be posted either here or on the contest post in the comments. Good luck.

After giving it a great deal of thought, I’ve decided to form a street team, but first I need a name. As usual, I need help. As an incentive, I’ll giveaway either autographed paper copies of the first four books, or a spice basket, or if any of you happen to be in either the New Orleans or San Antonio areas, lunch with me, and an autographed copy of one book.  Let’s hear your ideas!

I’ve got to get back to the galleys for Enticing Miss Eugénie Villaret, and start the next book which will be Rupert’s story. So I’ll leave you with some pictures.

Have a great Sunday and a wonderful week to come.

Please help me welcome my friend, critique partner, and fellow Regency author Collette Cameron to my blog today. Collette is going to be talking about her series, has a special announcement and giving way a book. In order to win, just leave a comment saying you want the book!

A Series Without a Name

First, I want to thank Ella for hosting me today. It’s always such a privilege to be here, right smack dab in the middle of Regency happenings. I’m so honored to have her as a critique partner. I can’t get away with any historical inaccuracy. She’s a walking, breathing museum of facts, and I adore her.

Highlander's Hope

Highlander’s Hope

When I started writing, I knew I wanted to write a trilogy with a large cast of characters. Yes, I’ve been criticized for that, but I like large casts—as long as I can figure out who’s who. Thus,  Highlander’s Hope was born. I changed the title of my debut twice (The first two titles were heinous!) and after writing the other two books in the trilogy, The Viscount’s Vow and The Earl’s Enticement, I wish I had titled my first novel The Highlander’s Heiress. I’m actually going to use that title for another book …way down the line.

I thought I’d have The Earl’s Enticement cover to show off today, as well as links to the print version of Highlander’s Hope. Alas, as it happens in the publishing world, neither has occurred quite yet. I have seen the first two drafts of the cover, but I needed some changes made so it fit a wee bit better with the other two. There is a castle though!TheViscountsVow2_850

Anyway, I digress.

Ella suggested I do a post on the series, and since The Earl’s Enticement is releasing in May 2014, I jumped at the chance. Then it occurred to me, I’d always referred to those first three books as the Blue Rose Series, but that doesn’t really work. I do mention blue roses in each of the books, but I also mention stays and laudanum and chamber pots. Can you imagine?

I have another series I’m writing (Yes, based on several of the characters introduced in the trilogy). I’m much more organized this time. It’s called Highland Heather Romancing a Scot Series, and I decided on the titles of all six books before I began writing them. Triumph and Treasure is done, and I’m plugging away on Virtue and Valor. Why, oh why couldn’t I have been that organized with the first three books?

So, I’m having a contest for a series name for Highlander’s Hope, The Viscount’s Vow, and The Earl’s Enticement. I’m announcing it here, “Thank you, Ella!” and will continue to take suggestions on my blog, Facebook, and Twitter through the end of the month. The blurbs for the first two books can be found by clicking on their titles in this post.

Here’s the blurb for The Earl’s Enticement.

She won’t be tamed.

A fiery, unconventional Scot, Adaira Ferguson wears breeches, swears, and has no more desire to marry than she does to follow society’s dictates of appropriate behavior. She trusts no man with the secret she desperately protects.


He can’t forget.

Haunted by his past, Roark, The Earl of Clarendon, rigidly adheres to propriety, holding himself and those around him to the highest standards, no matter the cost. Betrayed once, he’s guarded and leery of all women.

Mistaking Roark for a known spy, Adaira imprisons him. Infuriated, he vows vengeance. Realizing her error, she’s appalled and releases him, but he’s not satisfied with his freedom. Roark is determined to transform Adaira from an ill-mannered hoyden to a lady of refinement.

He succeeds only to discover, he preferred the free-spirited Scottish lass who first captured his heart.


I can’t wait to see your suggestions!

Oh, and one commenter will receive a digital copy of either The Viscount’s Vow or Highlander’s Hope.

To connect with Collette, simple head to her website for all her social media links.

The contest began yesterday, and, although there were many great entries, we need a more Christmassy title. It is, after all, a Christmas novella. Because everyone has worked so hard already, I’m sweetening the pot. In addition to the books, with winner will also receive their choice of a Caribbean spice box or lunch with me at RT or RWA.

Here is the blurb, which I’ve tweaked a bit.

It’s late November and all Georges, Marquis Cruzy-le-Châtel, wants is to return home for his first Christmas there in twenty years. But he has one last mission, stopping the Napoleon’s agents from placing prostitutes in England to gather information. When Georges receives the list of women, he’s shocked to find the lady he was supposed to have wed on it.

Madeleine, Mademoiselle du Beaune’s, father has died and her brother is presumed dead. As she struggles to keep her small family and their holdings together, a group of men, claiming to be from Napoleon’s notorious spy master, Fouché threaten to take her younger sister in a plot to infiltrate England’s Government. Madeleine agrees to take her sister’s place, but vows to be home before Christmas. A promise she doesn’t know if she can keep.

Georges discovers saving Madeleine is more complicated than he thought. Other, more sinister forces are behind the effort to remove her, and she will not agree to remain safely in England. On their mad rush through France to reach Beaune in time, their feelings deepen, but will their duties tear them apart, or will there be a Christmas miracle?

Now it’s your turn!
