    Congratulations. I enjoyed this as a WIP and know I will enjoy reading it again and then posting a review. Happy Thanksgiving and good luck with the publication.

  4. Order placed. After turkey with the grandkids, I will have to hurry home and read it so I can do some on-line black Friday shopping on Friday morning. Also, Thanks for reducing the price for preorders. Think I have all of your books.

  5. I’m looking forward to this new departure from you Joy. Moving the setting from Regency England to the American West sounds most intriguing. Sadly, I haven’t been able to follow it as a WIP, but I’m sure I’ll enjoy it all the more when I do read it.

    Good luck with the launch!

    • I was so happy to be able to type contractions. The manuscript is filled with can’t, don’t, I’ll, and shouldn’t (as well as assorted other shortened words). It was a joy to write for that one reason alone.

      Plus, it was a joy to write a Darcy who was a rancher/woodsman. 6’4″ tall, with long, sinewy arms, and strong thighs. No wimpy Darcy for this story. Picture your favorite man in red and black checked flannel shirts with Levi’s and boots.

  6. Joy,
    Looking at the cover of your new book, I feel that I am looking at you, as a young woman of seventeen. The resemblance is amazing!!! You were beautiful then, you are even more so, now!!! I’m excited for your new book. I Love You…Rita
