Bestselling Regency romance author Cathy Maxwell made a whole ballroom full of writers cry at the 2013 Romance Writers of America National Conference last month. In a good way! She gave an awesome speech reminding us that each person, no matter who he or she is, has something unique within them that deserves to be honored and expressed.
And I have one of her books to give away! It’s THE MARRIAGE RING, and appropriately, it’s about a heroine who has to be true to herself. Here’s the scoop:
The woman who will one day wear Richard Lynsted’s ring will be genteel, dainty, and well-bred.
This eliminates Grace MacEachin on all three counts. A hellion of the first order, the alluring, infuriating woman would be nothing more than a passing temptation to an upstanding gentleman like Richard–if it weren’t for the fact that she’s trying to blackmail his father!
Or, as Grace sees it, trying to get justice–and maybe just the slightest hint of revenge on the family that tore her life asunder when she was just a girl. And as for Lynsted, well, the stuffy, humorless man wouldn’t suffer for time spent in company more exciting than that of his company ledgers. Only when Richard gets Grace alone, she discovers he may know a thing or two about excitement after all…
