NOW AVAILABLE! The Spinster and Mr. Glover (The Revised Edition) by Karyn Gerrard @KarynGerrard #Historical #Victorian





When this story was originally published under another title, it was a very short story for a digital publisher’s specific line for short stories. When I received the rights back, I expanded the story from 9000 words to about 17,000. 

Since it’s a re-release, I’ve had people say they wish they could spend more time with the characters. I realized that I wished the same. So, I decided to revisit this story and revise and expand it. Again.

I know, perhaps I should just leave it alone, but it's my story, and I will do what I want *wink* This is the great advantage of self-publishing. :)

It will not have a new ISBN, I will just update the file and the cover, which means anyone who already has a copy only has to go to their kindle account and update the file. Anyone buying it from the day of the update forward will get the new version.




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?

Bold Seduction (Of Professor Hornsby) The Hornsby Brothers #1









A Fascinating Proposition

As owner of The Starling Club, one of London’s more popular brothels, Philomena McGrattan has seen and heard it all. There is little that surprises her anymore, and even less that stimulates her. When she is presented an opportunity at a tempting and bold seduction, she can’t help but rise to the challenge. A virgin son of a duke? How could she refuse?


An Improbable Encounter

Quiet and set in his ways, Lord Spencer Hornsby is a brilliant eccentric who prefers solitude and researching ancient civilizations. Alone in the Welsh countryside, with only his wolfhounds for company, Spencer has little time or patience for the pleasures of society. But when an unexpected guest arrives at his isolated hunting lodge, Spencer cannot help but be irresistibly intrigued by the presence of this beautiful woman.

Philomena is shocked to discover the odd professor stirs up feelings she thought long dead. Spencer, ever the man of research, is eager to learn all he can. Will they find deeper emotions are in play as they take their journey of discovery?

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 AND COMING SOON! His Wicked Celtic Kiss (Wicked Men of Rockland City #2) by Karyn Gerrard @KarynGerrard #Contemporary






Unofficial blurb: 

It took just one teasing wink and a sexy Irish lilt from bad boy Lorcan Byrne to turn Julie Barnes’s world upside down. 

 After several dangerous years working as a soldier and a spy, Lorcan has stopped in Rockland City for some much-needed downtime. Working for his extended family, he’s only in town for six months, and happily-ever-after isn’t in this world traveler’s vocabulary. 

Julie’s worked hard to change her life. But this handsome charmer is just as enticing as any of the decadent cakes she sells, and she can’t resist the temptation. She’s planning to enjoy every second of their explosive chemistry—for as long as it lasts. 

For his part, Lorcan didn’t count on meeting someone who could soothe his damaged heart and heal his troubled soul. Never mind the searing attraction. But staying permanently in one place is not an option. However, Julie is determined to convince him that he has more to offer than just his ‘wicked Celtic kiss.’

FROM THE AUTHOR:


Note on this book: It was previously published in 2014 with Crimson Romance
I rec'd the rights back in 2017. Crimson Romance is no longer in business. (Bought by Simon and Schuster in late 2016, closed in 2018)

Used paperbacks of the 2014 version are still floating out there.

I'm completely revising this story. His Wicked Celtic Kiss is a mainstream romance. This is not a dark romance.

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

I set no deadlines on myself, so the revisions are done when they're done, meaning it could release later this year or early next year. I'm guessing 2021.



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

Nestled on 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 and for ill, these family’s lives are intertwined.

The Barnes family represents law and order. The De Lucas embodies the complete opposite, and 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, as do old and new resentments—and old and new loves.



Check out the cover reveal for Book #1 He's the Wicked Bad (also coming soon!)





Unofficial Blurb:


Dark and brooding, Nick Crocetti was labeled a bad boy from the moment he arrived in Rockland City. Now 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 her own bakery. Meeting her secret high school crush, ‘the wicked bad’ Nick, rocks her world in ways she never imagined.

Despite the mutual physical attraction - and a shared past - Nick and Veronica are wary and determined to protect their hearts.
Breaking down the barriers of past heartbreak seem insurmountable, especially when the intimate bond moves toward something neither counted on—nor wanted. For two lonely people, acknowledging their feelings may be more than they bargained for.
