HUGO AND THE MAIDEN on sale!

Grab an ebook copy of HUGO AND THE MAIDEN for only .99!

Now’s your chance to check out my SEDUCERS series, a super steamy trilogy featuring Regency Era sex workers. Yes, you read that right: the heroes and heroines in these books all work at the same brothel. The themes in all three books are a bit darker than my usual fare and the sexy times are a lot hotter. 

Hugo is one of my favorite heroes and he’s definitely a man who has been scarred by life. He has no hope in finding happily ever after and hasn’t ever looked for love, but now–on a tiny island off the North Coast of Scotland–love has found him

Martha Pringle has never met a man like Hugo–because there aren’t any. The vicar’s daughter is alternately charmed, outraged, and aroused by his antics and the effect he has on her both emotionally and physically. 

If you’re ready to shake up your historical romance and crave something new and different, this is a great book to start with. 

Here is the official blurb and a buy link below. The book is only on world-wide sale for a limited time, so grab a copy while it’s cheap!


He thought he had it all—until she showed him exactly what he’d been missing…

Hugo Buckingham was perfectly happy with the life he’d built for himself. With his steady clientele and co-ownership stake in the most exclusive brothel in London, he had everything he needed.

But that was before.

Before he was falsely convicted of a crime and tossed onto a ship to New South Wales.

Before the ship went down and stranded him on the tiny island of Stroma.

Before her.

Miss Martha Pringle is everything he’s not—virginal, kind, and sweet. A good person. She deserves so much better than the likes of him. But that doesn’t stop him from wanting her, needing her, with an urgency that borders on terrifying. Now, Hugo has a choice to make. Should he go home, clear his name, and return to his old life—or stay with Martha and build a new one?

But more importantly…will Martha even want him once she discovers what kind of man he really is?

Hugo and the Maiden, book 3 in THE SEDUCERS series, is a sexy, angsty, historical romance featuring a hero who doesn’t believe in true love and the innocent heroine who proves him wrong .

Happily ever after guaranteed!

Minerva Spencer books for sale in Target

Greetings Gentle Readers:

Not one, not two, but THREE books in Target!

Minerva Spencer books for sale in Target

Here are Infamous, Outrageous, and The Arrangement for sale in Target.

This week my mom is visiting and we decided to take a longggg road trip to Colorado Springs to check out one of the fantastic Asian food markets (there are at least 8 of them in The Springs!)

I highly recommend the Asian Market, which we spent almost two hours browsing and could have spent oodles more time exploring.

Anyhow, we also did some other shopping and because I LOVE Target (even before they carried my books, but now I love them even more) we popped into one of the Targets in CS. And there were my lovely books!!

Did I squee and smirk? Yes, I did …

I think the Target employee who was stocking books must have thought I was the most out-of-control shopper he’d ever met.

So, what have I cooked with the load of Asian groceries I hauled home? So far I’ve made yellow curry, massaman curry, Vietnamese egg rolls, and pad Thai. Today will be green curry day. Do I like curry? Yeah, just a wee bit.

Here is a pic of the pooches, who are growing by leaps and bounds:

Great Pyrenees Puppies!

Here are Spot and Rover. Do they look guilty? They should. They just chewed up their dog bed…

And here is a #booksandshoes picture! Yes, I have more shoes to show off.

Here are my lovely Rebels of the Ton and a favorite pair of Chuck Taylors

 

THE FOOTMAN makes an appearance in PW Indie Scouting Report!

Yay! How cool is this? Publishers Weekly included THE FOOTMAN in their monthly Indie Scouting Report, which is a round up of the best books of the month.

I’m so thrilled the reviewers compared THE FOOTMAN to the titles in Mary Balogh’s Bedwyn series, which is my favorite of hers.

Here is a LINK to the brief article. I’ve also included my section of the round up below.

S.M. Laviolette

Synopsis: In 1802, impetuous 16-year-old Lady Elinor Atwood throws herself at her family’s new footman, setting off a devastating chain of events.

PW’s Takeaway: Lovers of historical romance will be hooked on this twisty story.

Comparable Title: Mary Balogh’s Bedwyn Saga series

Sample Line: “Iain had just opened his mouth to say something foolish and most likely job-ending when the door Lady Elinor had exited so violently opened and Lady Yarmouth stood on the threshold.”
