The Vicar's Frozen Heart Book 2







His heart needs to heal…
 

He gave her shelter from the storm, nursed her back to health. But Tremain Hornsby is more than just a village vicar performing a chivalrous duty. He’s an ex-soldier whose spirit has been ravaged by war. A nobleman living under another name and hiding his aristocratic heritage. Yet despite his secrets, he cannot help but be drawn to the fallen beauty, and asks her to stay and care for the orphan in his charge.

And hers is lost…

Society has deemed Eliza Winston a disgraced governess. Dismissed, robbed, and left to perish, she finds herself in Tremain’s home—and soon realizes her handsome rescuer is the one in need of healing. Though a daunting task, Eliza is determined to thaw the vicar’s frozen heart—but her own is in danger. For Tremain is not only the man she’s dreamed of, but a blueblood whose noble birth makes him an impossible match.

The Marquess of Secrets 
(Hornsby Brothers #3 and conclusion to the series)





A secret life
For years Harrison Hornsby, Marquess of Tennington, heir to the Duke of Gransford, has been a scandalous rake. Unbeknownst to all he’d been leading an entirely different and secret life as physician to the poor. Though his younger brothers held out for true love, as the heir, Harrison feels he doesn’t have that luxury. The time has come to marry an appropriate bride. One who in society’s eyes is worthy to become a duchess. But fate has other plans.


A damaged woman


Life for Lydia Chesterton has not been kind. Once a respected nurse at a London hospital, she is alone and homeless due to disastrous decisions with regard to love and trust. Living on the streets and deathly ill, Lydia finds temporary sanctuary with Harrison. Her rescuer is hard to resist especially when he proposes a trade of secrets. With her dangerous past threatening her future, and Harrison bound by duty, a lasting love appears to be out of reach…unless they toss aside all obstacles and risk their hearts.

COVER REVEAL: Protecting the Duke (The Rakes of St. Regent's Park #1) by Karyn Gerrard @KarynGerrard #HistoricalRomance #ComingSoon

 


Cover art by The Write Designer



Blurb for PROTECTING THE DUKE (The Rakes of St. Regent's Park #1)


The fact that women couldn’t join the London Metropolitan Police was an injustice to Eleanora Galway. She found her way around such an obstacle: by forming a detective agency. When a note arrives from a duke concerning a mysterious and gruesome delivery, Eleanora agrees to investigate.


Despite the pursuit of pleasures by The Rakes of St. Regent’s Park, weariness and boredom were setting in. Along with stark loneliness. No one felt this more than Christian Bamford, Duke of Allenby. Once the Galway Agency arrives, Christian is fascinated by Eleanora and her razor-sharp deductive mind and bold confidence. She attracts him as no other woman has done before.


When Christian proposes assisting her with her inquiries, Eleanora initially balks. But the temptation of being in the darkly handsome duke’s company is hard to resist. Swept up into an adventure and a passion neither had counted on, the blending of unlikely lives, occupations, and societal standing seems insurmountable. But for the independent Eleanora and the progressive-minded Christian, nothing is impossible. Not even love.


THE RAKES OF ST. REGENT'S PARK SERIES


In a private meeting place, in an old bank office behind Colosseum Terrace on Albany Street, a group of gentlemen attended a gathering. It had nothing to do whatsoever with financing, investments, or stocks—unless you counted moral bankruptcy. The central rules of this club: no serious attachments to anyone, and the pursuit of one’s own pleasures, especially of the carnal variety, were to be of the utmost importance.

But weariness and boredom were setting in. Along with something more worrying: loneliness. A disquiet of the soul. These bad boy peers of Victorian London were damaged, hiding their inner torture beneath a thin veneer of devil-may-care dissoluteness.

It takes an exceptional group of women to capture the hearts of such men. To see past the outer shell. The ladies are determined to live and love in their own way, with no relinquishment of their independence and no compromises. How satisfying to find that deep down, these progressive men are in total agreement.

 


Author's Note


This is an all-new historical romance set in 1897 Victorian London, and I will be folding in already published standalone historical romances into this series (revised, of course)

Here will be book 2


Book 3



Book 4 is a historical romance that I received the rights back to a few years ago. Also reworking/revising that. There may be more books in this series, but I'm not committing to anything for now.

Hoping to have these three books ready to go in the spring. I am working on my own schedule.

SALE! The Spinster and Mr. Glover (Blind Cupid Series#1) by Karyn Gerrard @KarynGerrard #99Cents #Historical









Anne Sommer, a spinster firmly on the shelf, does the unthinkable. She hires a man from the Blind Cupid brothel for several nights of scandalous pleasure. Anne wants the sensual memories to keep her company in the lonely years ahead. However, she did not expect the young man to move her in ways she never imagined.

Desmond Glover gives sexual gratification—for a price. An orphan whose childhood was mired in scandal and poverty; Desmond has learned to close off his emotions, especially with regard to his occupation. He did not count on a lonely spinster to awaken his hidden passion.

Not only do the years separate them, but so do their social standing. Can Anne and Desmond cross such a chasm and find mutual desire—or love?

NOW AVAILABLE! He's the Wicked Bad (Wicked Men of Rockland City #1) by Karyn Gerrard @KarynGerrard #FamilySaga #ContemporaryRomance



Dark and brooding, Nick Crocetti was labeled a ‘bad boy’ from the moment he arrived in Rockland City. Now the owner of the bar, The Chief, whispers of criminal dealings and a murky past still swirl around him. Being alone suits Nick, until his high school fantasy enters his life once again.

 

Veronica Barnes is leaving behind a disastrous marriage along with her high-paying consulting career. Returning home, she is determined to follow a lifelong dream of opening a bakery. Meeting her secret high school crush, ‘the wicked bad’ Nick, stirs up her emotions in ways she never imagined.

 

Despite the mutual physical attraction—past and present—Nick and Veronica are wary, and, even though they would never admit it, —lonely. Breaking down the barriers of past heartbreak seem insurmountable, especially when the intimate bond moves toward something neither counted on—nor wanted. Acknowledging their feelings may be more than they bargained for.

FROM THE AUTHOR:

Note on this book: It was previously published in 2013 with Crimson Romance's Spicy line as The Wicked Bad. 
I rec'd the rights back in 2016. Crimson Romance is no longer in business. (Bought by Simon and Schuster in late 2016, closed in 2018)

Used paperbacks of the 2013 version are still floating out there.

I have completely revised this story. First off, He's the Wicked Bad is no longer erotic, this is a mainstream series. Meaning even though the hero is on a motorcycle, he is not part of a club, and this is not a dark romance.

I also have the rights back to book 2, His Wicked Celtic Kiss. That title will not be changing.

Book 3 is written, it is called His Wicked Cold Heart

Book 4 is not written as yet. will be called He's so Wicked Good

So, just to reiterate: Not a dark or erotic romance, not a mafia romance. This is a mainstream, family saga contemporary romance.



A little about the series: The Wicked Men of Rockland City


Nestled on the Chesapeake Bay, in Rockland City, Maryland, this small industrial city has witnessed the struggle for dominance by two families: The De Lucas and the Barneses. For good or ill, their lives, and those associated with them, have intertwined for years.

 

The Barnes family represents law and order. The De Lucas embodies the complete opposite. Soon their various criminal enterprises overtake everyone’s lives with disastrous results. Once the smoke clears, the question remains of who will survive. Passions run high, so do old and new resentments—and old and new loves and friendships.







Karyn Gerrard is a multi-published author, she loves to write sensual historical and contemporaries. Tortured heroes are an absolute must. 

 As long as she can avoid being hit by a runaway moose in her wilderness paradise she assumes everything is golden. Karyn’s been happily married for a long time to her own hero. His encouragement and loving support keep her moving forward.
