To Kiss a Rake 600x900


Melinda Starling doesn’t let ladylike behavior get in the way of true love. She’s secretly helping with an elopement, when she’s tossed into the waiting coach and driven away by a notorious rake.


Miles Warren, Lord Garrison, comes from a family of libertines, and he’s the worst of them all—or so society believes. When Miles helps a friend to run away with an heiress, it’s an entertaining way to revenge himself on one of the gossips who slandered him.

Except that he drives off with the wrong woman…and as if that wasn’t scandalous enough, he can’t resist stealing a kiss.

    • Hi, Ella. I wish I could find the manuscript of that story. I have a box of things from my primary school days, but it’s not in there, alas.


  1. I’d never thought about confidence as an important quality for a writer. But now that you’ve mentioned it, it makes sense. It’s crucial if we are to keep going in the face of less than stellar sales, reviews, or bad days at the keyboard. Good blog. Thanks to both of you.


    • Thanks, Elizabeth. LOL! Poor fellow, it wasn’t entirely his fault. On the other hand, she could hardly be expected to introduce herself in the mews at midnight!
