I first met Maire at the RWA National convention this past summer in NYC. I was introduced to her by a few friends and even had dinner together the night Maire won the 2011 Golden Heart for historical romance for her book tilted, The Dark Lady. Maire was a darling and very sweet, funny and nice. A few days ago she popped up on twitter and I went a little fan girl crazy on her. I'm shameless like that.
I'm so happy to announce she sold The Dark Lady to Pocket Star Books new ebook line. The Dark Lady is the first in a trilogy to be released in November for $4.99.
Synopsis: Childhood affection leads to adult romance in this haunting love story and captivating debut that shifts from the wretched hell of a cruel insane asylum to the lavish ballrooms of London’s high society.
Lord Ian Blake failed to keep the oath he made to his childhood friend Eva that he would bring her husband Hamilton back from India. Though his heart longs for her forgiveness, he knows he doesn’t deserve it, as he is responsible for Hamilton’s death. And not only has Ian failed Eva, he has returned to England too late. Eva’s brother-in-law has locked her away in a madhouse. Nothing will stop Ian from saving the beautiful, independent girl he’s always loved and claiming her—at long last—as his wife.
Lady Eva Carin doesn’t think she deserves to return to society, not after the death of both her husband and young son. When her childhood friend appears in the dismal asylum for women to save her, she cannot ignore the hope that sparks in her heart. Against all odds, fate has reunited her with the one man she has ever loved, but he turned his back on her once before. How will she be able to trust him again?
I'm dying to get my hands on this book! GIMME NOW!
