We received another blow today concerning my Mom’s health. Therefore, please excuse my absence from social media. I will still pull this story from this site on Sunday or Monday and will try to get it out. I just don’t have the heart for it right now. Thank you for your understanding.

A Gift for You!

As mentioned in my last post, the muse can be a funny thing. My quirky story “Hide & Seek” morphed into “Lost & Found” a serious look at phobias. (Think For Pemberley without the assault). Here’s the blurb:

TIMELESS ROMANCE FOR THE BUSY READER

When he lost his heart to her, he found happiness.

Miss Elizabeth Bennet is missing—vanishing without a trace from the library at Rosings Park. Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy vows to find her but doing so leads to unexpected consequences for the both of them.

Mr. Darcy is her sworn enemy. Yet, when trapped with him for hours, each layer of his personality is stripped away until the man underneath the stoic countenance is revealed as one worthy of admiration.

In this sweet Regency variation of Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice, will Mr. Darcy’s arrogant pride keep him from finding the most intriguing woman of his acquaintance? Will her prejudice withstand trials so a man worthy of her affection will not be lost?

Enjoy this sweet Regency novella of about 100 pages in length, as our dear couple overcome all odds to find a love for the ages, or do they?

Lost and Found is appropriate for all readers.

 Since this story is now available on Amazon, I needed to take it offline in case I decide to be exclusive. Here is the link: Lost & Found

Here is the newest cover.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Blame the Muse!!!

Nicole Clarkston called me NAUGHTY and said she was going to smack me. Why? Accidentally/inadvertently/fortuitously a second Christie Capps story took over my fingers. I’m going to have to pause “Letter of the Law” for another week. Honestly, I don’t have any other stories trying to sink my boat. Just these last two, I promise.

“Elizabeth” was released in eBook form on Amazon yesterday. Here is the link: Elizabeth

The response has been really good and the reviews wonderful. Thank you very much.

As to the newest story I’m writing? It’s called Hide & Seek. I’ll see if I can get the cover to post. It’s a Regency tale with Darcy and Elizabeth at Rosings. In truth, I had so much fun writing “Elizabeth” because the colonel kept trying to interfere with our dear couple. In this tale? Oh my goodness! Colonel Fitzwilliam is up to his knees in mischief. He loves and respects Darcy but has made a tease go too far. I’m not sure how this one is going to develop yet but I am confident Darcy and Lizzy will both be pleased by the end. I’m hoping to have this done and to the editor sometime next week. OK, let’s give the cover a try. Here it is—maybe.

This tiny excerpt is Mr. Darcy describing her to himself. “Her rich brown hair reminded him of his favorite colt, a bay his father had named Croesus. Her eyes were a stunning blue rimmed with thick dark lashes and beautifully curved brows. Her lips, the color of his mother’s favorite pink tulip invited the touch of his own, but only in his dreams.” A colt? I guess it was good it wasn’t an old, tired nag from the stables. Poor Darcy is half parts insulting and romantic. Will he ever learn? I sure hope not.

Okay, I’m off to type. I have books to write and FINISH.
