In March of 2016, I was pleased to be a part of an anthology titled All Around the Ton: 5 Regency Romances. Following is a short description of my story.
MERRY’S WONDERFUL CHRISTMAS GIFT
Merry Damonson’s upcoming Christmas season promises yet again to serve only as a reminder that the man she loves won’t be there to celebrate the season with her. Two years earlier Edward had unexpectedly inherited an earldom and moved away, apparently forgetting the girl next door he’d asked to be his bride. When Merry learns Edward is returning to the country for Christmas, she fears the season will be more hurtful than usual. Why, then, does she find herself trying to help Edward make peace with his new life, even though she knows he has chosen to live it without her?
(Please note that the same story appeared in a 2015 anthology titled Rogues, Rakes, and Romance: 5 Historical Novellas, as well as a December 2013 anthology titled Bells Will Be Ringing: A Holiday Romance Collection.)
“Merry's Wonderful Christmas Gift” is a step back into time with Merry, a charming young girl who instantly endears herself to the reader. Her story of finding true love with Edward, Earl of Branford, is charming and a real delight.
