I've been slowly reissuing my older books digitally, and now the time has arrived to send my very first Signet Regency, The Diabolical Baron, back into the world. It's the first in my Putney Classics Series, which will include Carousel of Hearts and Lady of Fortune.
Back when I was writing my Fallen Angels Series, my publisher asked me to revise several of my early Signet Regencies into historical romances. I was happy to do that with some of the stories that became Petals in the Storm, Angel Rogue, The Bargain, and The Rake, but I didn't feel that was appropriate for the three books I'm calling Putney Classics. These stories are just too traditional Regency to become rewritten as longer, sexier historical romances.
So, say hello to the newest edition of The Diabolical Baron! To this day, it's an object of wonder to me. I started writing the book three months after buying my first computer for my design business. I'd always had stories in my head (I thought everyone did!) so I decided to see if I write a story myself.
