Due to his father’s untimely demise, Damon Cranston is thrust into the role of the Duke of Chellenham. His loathsome and debauched father was too busy indulging in his vices and left the dukedom in shambles. Damon turns to Althea Galway, co-owner of the Galway Investigative Agency, to assist in unraveling the tangled mess. Since meeting Althea months ago, he hasn’t been able to get her out of his mind, for he is captivated by her intellect, compassion, and confidence.

 

Althea Galway has never been impressed by money or title. Or by looks—although Damon, the devilishly handsome, golden-haired duke, caught her attention at first glance. Arrogant and egotistical, he is called Dorian Gray by society because of his reprobate reputation. But Althea senses deep loneliness, perhaps even inner scars, and is compelled to find the honorable man she believes is hidden behind the cool exterior.

 

Damon and Althea are swept up into a maelstrom of revelations: a conspiracy involving the late duke and others from the privileged class. Add a personal crisis into the mix, and finding a way to a shared future together seems hopeless. But they cannot deny the scorching attraction between them. Finding a way to make it all work will be a challenge. But it is one the duke and the lady detective are determined to overcome.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

FROM THE AUTHOR: Hello! This book is all new material and up for pre-order! Release date is Nov 29, 2022. I had lots of fun writing this, as Damon is quite the rogue. But ultimately, this book is about lost family found, how love can be transformative, and how various crises can make one stronger. Hey, love can conquer all! :)

I have also started book #6 (working title, The Viscount of Shadows) and it will concern Oliver Wollstonecraft (grandson to Aidan, the hero of Love with a Notorious Rake-Men of Wollstonecraft Hall #3) Will there be more after #6? The potential is there, as Oliver has lots of cousins *wink* but I am taking this one book at a time. Cheers!







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.

 

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.




Blurb for THE DUKE OF PAIN (The Rakes of St. Regent's Park #4)

The oldest and only remaining original member of The Rakes of St. Regent’s Park, Gideon Broyles, the Duke of Watford, has grown weary of his debauched escapades. Due to his wretched past, he often refers to himself as the Duke of Pain. He selfishly breezed through life with no thought for anything or anyone. All that changed when Gideon met Olivia Durham at an exclusive club. The passionate encounter has him reeling, as he never experienced these powerful emotions before.

Olivia also has a dark past. Hiding behind a fictitious persona, she provides a particular service to her clients. One that doesn’t involve physical intimacy, for Olivia cannot stand to be touched. In all her years at the club, no man has sparked her interest—until Gideon. Despite trying to ignore the intense feelings swirling between them, Olivia finds the darkly handsome duke hard to resist. When secrets from her past come to light, the complications become insurmountable.

 There are multiple obstacles to overcome, including shared doubts about their capacity to feel—anything. For two emotionally closed-off people to find and accept enduring happiness? Gideon and Olivia must believe that love can conquer all.

NOW IN PRINT! Protecting the Duke and The Duke of Pain (The Rakes of St. Regent's Park) by Karyn Gerrard @KarynGerrard #Historical @ERomNews

 




After 5+ years of self-publishing, I finally figured out how to format for a paperback print-on-demand (Thanks to Draft2Digital's new beta print program). It was relatively painless, and the files easy to adjust to upload to Amazon. Print books will be available at Amazon (certain markets) and Barnes and Noble.

I am aware few people will be interested in this, but I wanted to have the option available. I also decided I would only do this for books over 60,000 words, of which I do not have that many. For example, in my new series, The Rakes of St. Regent's Park, Only book 1 and 4 will be in paperback. Book 2 and 3 are only 40,000+ words. Book 5 will be in paperback, as it will be around 73,000 words. And I am also way into book 6, The Viscount of Shadows, already have 40,000 words written! I am really enjoying this series.

Just a reminder that I write at my leisure and impose no deadlines on myself, so I cannot say when Book 5 and 6 will be released. I am aiming for fall/autumn for book 5, but we'll see.

Due to his father’s untimely demise, Damon Cranston is thrust into the role of the Duke of Chellenham. His loathsome and debauched father was too busy indulging in his vices to prepare Damon for such responsibility and left the dukedom in shambles. Damon turns to Althea Galway, co-owner of the Galway Investigative Agency, to assist in unraveling the tangled mess. Since meeting Althea months ago, he hasn’t been able to get her out of his mind.

FROM THE AUTHOR: Hello! I am almost finished this book, then it as to go through edits, so I am hoping it will be ready for release later in 2022, but as I have said many times before, I do not place deadlines on myself, so anything can happen (either in my life, or world events) that may cause delays. I am having lots of fun with this, as Damon is quite the rogue. But ultimately, this book is about lost family found, how love can be transformative, and how various crises can make one stronger. Hey, love can conquer all! :)

I have also started book #6 (working title, The Viscount of Shadows) and it will concern Oliver Wollstonecraft (grandson to Aidan, the hero of Love with a Notorious Rake-Men of Wollstonecraft Hall #3) Will there be more after #6?
