Fortunately, Chalon found her dashing gentleman, married him, and now lives happily ever after in Southern California.
Nora Ellsworth, darling of London society, has her choice of eligible suitors, but since childhood, she has been expected to marry Jonathan Browning, a gentleman whose wealth and stability will someday secure the futures of Nora and her mother and sister. The family estate will pass to an odious male cousin upon the death of Nora’s father, and when he suddenly takes ill, her need to marry well becomes vitally important.
As Nora struggles with the idea of marrying without love, she finds herself increasingly drawn to Devlin Fausett, a man with dark eyes and intriguing conversation. But Devlin’s reputation as an indebted gambler is difficult to ignore. Despite the rumors from the ton and the marriage decision before her, Nora is determined to befriend the dashing Mr. Fausett, and his charms soon make it all but impossible to remember her duty. Until she learns the truth of her fortune. There is a way to keep her family’s estate, but the price is high: Nora must wed, as soon as possible. Torn between two very different men, she must make the ultimate decision. Will she be guided by her head or her heart?

What people are saying about An Inconvenient Romance:
“I really loved this book. It’s told from the point of view of both Leah and Charles and really tugged at my heart. The characterization is done well, and I really liked the plot twists and emotional appeal. I finished it in two days because I couldn’t put it down once I started.” -Charissa, Joy in the Moments
“An Inconvenient Romance’ is delightful! It’s easy to see that Jane Austen has a heavy influence on this author. We see plenty of spunky ‘Elizabeth Bennet’ in the heroine, Miss Leah Hastings. Leaving out the usual titles we see in most Regency novels today, it has the familiar feel of Austen’s work, without the classical writing style . . . I could not put this down! I absolutely loved the way this was written, the plot and the way it all came together. Plenty to keep the reader guessing and unpredictable. I cannot wait to read more from this author!” -Amy
What people are saying about A Tangled Inheritance:

I would highly recommend it to anyone who loves this genre and even to those who aren’t convinced they do!” -Aimee, Getting Your Read On Blog
“What struck me the most with this book was that moment of certain clarity when Nora and Devlin knew they were truly in love with the other. The author described everything so that we could see it clearly and as deeply as they felt . . .If you like reading about gambling, bad guys, arrogant guys, entail, inheritance, realizing that you love someone very deeply, horses, timepieces, doctors, family then this might be for you! As for me, I’m still swooning!” – Kelly, Kindle and Me Blog
