Release day: A Little More Scandal

29 May 2012

Today is the official release day of A Little More Scandal by Carrie Lofty (ebook novella, Pocket). Here’s the blurb:

Welsh minister’s daughter Catrin Jones is the talk of Britain. Many women served as nurses in the Crimean War, skirting the edge of propriety to tend lonely soldiers’ wounds, but only Catrin survived a shipwreck on her return voyage. Suddenly, like a circus curiosity, everyone wants a glimpse of the scandalous Miss Jones. Scarred, opinionated, and adjusting to a rush of fame so very different from far-away battlefields, she’s not the sort of woman Scottish robber baron William Christie aspires to marry.

Following a decade of brilliant business maneuvers, William is on the verge of securing a key railroad contract. But his aristocratic wife’s death during childbirth meant the loss of considerable influence. Few in Society have forgiven his up-from-the-gutters youth. With respectability, wealth, and his two-year-old son finally his to claim, William must decide whether an extraordinary nurse is worth embracing just a little more scandal….

Carrie dropped by today to tell us a little about this story:

A Little More Scandal is a unique romance for me, because I’ve never written in novella length before. Plus I faced the added challenge of writing a romance for the father of the four siblings in the Christies series. That meant journeying back a generation and digging into the heart of a man who later intimidates and frustrates his grown children. I needed to find the right heroine for him, someone strongwilled and practical who could also navigate his gruff nature. When my editor said this was her favorite couple I’ve yet written, I knew I’d overcome two daunting challenges. This is a great and inexpensive introduction to the Christies series, taking readers back to where the family drama first began.

You can find out more about the book on Carrie’s website and the book is available for sale from Amazon.

    Thanks for stopping by, ladies, and to ARRA for inviting me. And I agree with Kaetrin: I love trying out new-to-me authors by sampling a novella. They’re a difficult medium. If a writer can make it work, I dive into their back catalog. Have a great week, everyone!

    I’ve been meaning to try a Carrie Lofty book for a while now – I have a couple on my wishlist at Books on Board I believe. I think the novella length is a great way to introduce a new series and a great way to try a new author.
