The Redemption of Lord Rawlings - Release Party

Welcome to the Party!

Fortune smiles! Today is release day for two fantastic new titles by Rachel Van Dyken: The long-awaited The Redemption of Lord Rawlings, the third book in the House of Renwick trilogy -- and the new novella Waltzing with the Wallflower, co-written by Rachel Van Dyken and Leah Sanders. And also this week a new release by Kay Springsteen and Kim Bowman, the Regency romance, A Lot Like a Lady. All three titles published by Astraea Press.

The Redemption of Lord Rawlings

Poor, alone, and lost in the rain--Lord Rawlings has no hope for his future, until an unknown lady appears out of nowhere to kiss him and disappear again as mysteriously as she came.

With society against him and time slipping away, there is very little chance Lord Rawlings will be able to find a suitable wife who will accept him in his fallen state, even if money wasn't in short supply.

Is there anyone who will take a chance on him? And in the mean time, will he be able to resist the young siren who so readily throws herself at him at every turn?

Waltzing with the Wallflower

The Season has only just begun, but already Ambrose Benson is bored…until his brother offers him a challenge. Something worthy of his particular talents.

The object: The girl hiding behind the plants—the one in the horrible dress.

The goal: Turn her into the envy of the ton. A lady suitable for a duke.

But there is just something about the lady—in spite of all her social misgivings—something that draws him like a moth to flame and makes him want to waltz with the wallflower.

A Lot Like a Lady by Kay Springsteen and Kim BowmanLadies’ maid, Juliet Baines has gotten herself into a pickle by agreeing to go to London and taking the place of her mistress and best friend, Annabella Price, stepsister to the Duke of Wyndham. After all, what does a servant know about being a lady? But Juliet soon finds that pretending to be a lady isn’t nearly as hard as guarding her heart against the folly of wanting a man who’s completely out of reach.

Graeme "Grey" Roland Dominick Markwythe, Sixth Duke of Wyndham, approaches his duties as a nobleman with great dedication and meticulous care. And he’s a man who is not easily fooled...except when he tries to convince himself he's not utterly and madly in love with the beautiful imposter who has turned his life upside down. Will society and his responsibilities to his noble status keep him from opening his heart to the woman he loves?

  1. My favorite is Sara-love her attitude

  2. My favorite is Sara too. The first book i read by Rachel was The Ugly Duckling Debutante and since then, i have adored her books. (Read them more than once) And i love this character. The way she was treated, how she overcame the abuse and found her special someone. I love it! :) Her character was so likable, relating, she drew me in and even the way she was raised, she was still a sweet kind woman. I adore her for being...well her. :)
