Just got official word The Hornsby Series is back in my control. Which means, If I wish to continue, I am free and clear from the contracts and can do so.
Long story short, if you propose a trilogy, make sure you get contracts for all three books.
Anyway, I'm glad I can do the word length I want. It will be a novella and will be called THE MARQUESS OF SECRETS (working title) and will concern the oldest brother, Harrison Hornsby, Marquess of Tennington and heir to the Duke of Gransford. The characters from the first two books will be making an appearance. I will pub it under my KG Publishing.
I do want to finish up this story and am pleased I can do so. In fact, think I'll go start it right now since I have it more or less plotted out. :)
Book 2 is on sale for 99 cents until the end of August.

His heart begins to heal…
He gave her shelter from the storm, nursed her back to health, just as any good man might do for a damsel in distress. But Tremain Colson is more than just a small town vicar performing a gallant duty. He’s an ex-soldier whose spirit has been ravaged by war, a nobleman hiding his aristocratic heritage. Yet despite his secrets, he cannot help but feel drawn to the fallen beauty and soon asks her to stay and care for the orphan in his charge…
And hers is lost…
Disgrace sent Eliza Winston out into the world, a governess in ruin. But once she finds herself in Tremain’s home—and in his bed—she realizes her handsome rescuer is the one in need of healing. No sooner does Eliza thaw the vicar’s heart than she realizes her own is in danger. For Tremain is not only the man she dreams of marrying, but a blueblood whose noble birth makes him an impossible match…

Karyn Gerrard, born and raised in the Maritime Provinces of Eastern Canada, now makes her home in a small town in Northwestern Ontario. When she’s not cheering on the Red Sox or travelling in the summer with her teacher husband, she writes, reads romance, and drinks copious amounts of Earl Grey tea.
Even at a young age Karyn’s storytelling skills were apparent, thrilling her fellow Girl Guides with off-the-cuff horror stories around the campfire. A multi-published author, she loves to write sensual historicals, particularly in the Victorian era. She also writes 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 keeps her moving forward.
