NO LONGER AVAILABLE: Bold Seduction by @KarynGerrard #Historical ~New Version Coming Soon! #HornsbyBrothers

BOLD SEDUCTION (The Hornsby Brothers #1)

The Hornsby Brothers #1
Karyn Gerrard
Kensington Publishing/Lyrical Press

To recap from a previous post: What is wrong with the 2015 edition published with Kensington/Lyrical Press? Nothing, in theory, but there is an explanation.

BOLD SEDUCTION was my first book with Kensington's digital line. It was originally a standalone story. When Kensington contacted me to see what else I had, I was writing THE VICAR'S FROZEN HEART. So I pitched it as book two in a series. Sold! But by the time I got around to pitching the third and final book, too much time had gone by, so Kensington passed, (though they did offer me contracts for another series) 
The publisher said I could release book 3 myself. Cool. But because of real life and contract obligations I wasn't able to get around to finishing book 3 until recently. THE MARQUESS OF SECRETS released April 23rd. (see below for links)

I concluded it was best to have the complete series under my control. So, asked for the rights back and got it. At the time of this post this older version is still up at Barnes and Noble. Hopefully it will be down soon.

The new version will be revised, rewritten, and re-edited. Not sure when it will be back up, but soon. I work at my own pace. Also, when I am able, I will also be asking for book 2 to be returned so the complete series is in my control. 

                      Here's the new cover and new blurb! 


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.

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. 

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 keeps her moving forward.

“Looking for a swoon-worthy read? You can’t go wrong with the lovely and emotional romances from Karyn Gerrard.” ~Vanessa Kelly, USA Today Bestselling author 

"Karyn Gerrard writes very enjoyable, richly textured historical romances." ~Kate Pearce, New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author
