It’s Launch Day for Embracing Scandal

by Suzi Love roses2

I’m very excited to be at The Ladies in Red for the launch of my second book with Crimson Romance.

Embracing Scandal is the first in my series about the scientifically-gifted Jamison siblings and is set in London in the 1840s when there was a boom in railway expansion.
My heroine, Becca, conflicts with an increasingly prudish early Victorian society when she uses her intellect, something women were discouraged from doing.Lady Rebecca Jamison, a mathematical genius, saves her siblings from financial ruin by dabbling in the London stock exchange. When a greedy syndicate kills her friend and threatens her family, Becca begs assistance from Cayle, Duke of Sherwyn, her nemesis and previous friend.As Cayle and Becca rekindle old passions, the duke uses old skills as a spy to protect his lady. He successfully defeats the illegal consortium, but can Cayle persuade a self-sufficient spinster to become his duchess?
One of the best things about being an historical romance author is doing all the research, even though I tend to get distracted by all the weird and wonderful facts I discover. This is one of the first time a steam train could be seen by the public.

For Embracing Scandal, I researched the amazing inventions that popped up everywhere using steam engines. In 1840, trains and railway lines were invading many parts of England and Europe and alongside the railway industry, there was a need for steam engines to do all sorts of work in the factories.

New Month, New Goals?

9781440557286February 7th.  The crowds at the gym are fading out.  The daily specials at the grocery store are wings and potato chips. And the New Year resolutions have all gone by the wayside.

Or have they?

Just because January didn’t go your way, doesn’t mean its time to give up. Now’s the time to dig in, find that second wind, and find a way to make forward progress on your goals.

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the idea of starting over.  Whether it be on your resolutions, or, like Barb, my heroine in The Bull Rider’s Manager, maybe its a complete do over for your life.  Barb’s seen herself as the career woman.  That’s where she was successful.  Her love life, well that had always been a disaster. Now, she’s done something foolish again.

Trying to come back from life’s trials takes a lot of determination, dedication, and luck.  I guess, I’m a lot like Barb.  As a woman, I don’t know my own strength.  But I’m learning.

So what have you let slide this last month?  What are you recommitting to today?

I’m back on the eating healthy path.  Maybe I’ll see you there?

THE BULL RIDER’S MANAGER – available at Amazon/BN/and where ever fine digital books are sold…

Barb Carico’s all about business.  Now that her best friend tied the knot with Barb’s new business partner, she’s busier than ever. Managing Jesse Sullivan’s career and public persona can be a handful. Add in an aging mother who goes through home health nurses like candy, Barb’s hanging on the edge.

Her one salvation?  Hunter Martin, prodigal son of Martin Family Dairy and, hopefully, Jesse’s next sponsor. After his brother’s death, Hunter’s become an instant dad to his seven-year-old niece.  For Hunter, the rodeo weekend with Barb is the perfect excuse to relax.

When their dinner turns into a quick trip to a Vegas wedding chapel, both Barb and Hunter agree their nuptials were a mistake Barb doesn’t know anything about being a wife or mother but she needs one favor.  A favor she’ll trade her lifestyle, independence, and even risk her heart to make come true.
