Book Blurb

Sherwood Forest, 1815 

Cassiopeia Valient storms, “Sir, is this any way to conduct a kidnapping?” 

When Blake Forester rescues her from her crashed carriage, Cassie mistakes him for “The Gentleman Bandit” she hired to kidnap her and split the ransom.

Blake is her intended victim. He should be outraged! Instead, he’s intrigued. Since he returned from the War, he suffers terrifying memories. So many died. Why did he survive? This diabolical damsel may be the distraction he needs to get back to living again.

After Blake reveals who he really is, Cassie’s life shatters. She vows to cease her wild, reckless behavior. This time her actions went beyond dangerous. If she has to bite back words and squeeze out smiles, she will act like a proper lady.

Thwarting her resolve, this lord dares her to join him in glorious adventures. She can’t avoid the rascal. He’s lending her father money to repair their flood-damaged estate. Demanding his cut of the cancelled ransom, the real Gentleman Bandit threatens blackmail and kidnapping. Blake and Cassie chase the culprit only to discover the most dangerous adventure is falling in love.

About Susan

Like many readers and writers, I watch stories inside my head. When I read a Regency romance, (like the one I’ve written) I imagine myself dancing at a London ball or racing through Sherwood Forest. When I write, I imagine an intriguing scene, always one with action and attraction. I watch how my hero and heroine act. That’s how I discover who they are and what they care about. Before I’ll write their story, they must surprise, titillate and even upset me. I love researching their time and place in history almost as much as I love inviting these “strangers” inside my head.

For twenty-five years, I wrote columns and reviews for Video Views Magazine. I’ve seen almost every new movie release, especially the romances and anything with an historical setting. Though I was born and raised in Chicago and its suburbs, I married a country boy from rural Ohio. Richard insisted we retire to the hinterlands of the Arkansas Ozarks. Our post office was so remote, you couldn’t find it on most maps. While we lived there, I interviewed more than a hundred people for articles in magazines and newspapers. My focus was Ozark people, culture and history.

My husband died three years ago. I miss my hero every day. We have two grown sons and one grandson. I now live in a Chicago suburb. I volunteer in the local schools and help at my church. Last year, I discovered cruising. I’ve visited the western Caribbean and the western Mediterranean. When we can go out again, England here I come.

Weekend Reads: Christmas Hope by Caroline Warfield

Cuddle up with a historical romance this weekend~

On the “11th Day of the 11th Month” the Great War ended, but his struggle to find the love that gave him hope continues.

About the Book

After two years at the mercy of the Canadian Expeditionary force and the German war machine, Harry ran out of metaphors for death, synonyms for brown, and images of darkness. When he encounters color among the floating islands of Amiens and life in the form a widow and her little son, hope ensnares him. Through three more long years of war and its aftermath, the hope she brings keeps Harry alive.

Rosemarie Legrand’s husband left her a tiny son, no money, and a savaged reputation when he died. She struggles to simply feed the boy and has little to offer a lonely soldier, but Harry’s devotion lifts her up. The war demands all her strength and resilience but the hope of peace and the promise of Harry’s love keep her going.

When it is over will their love be enough?

Weekend Reads: Posey - Brides of New Hope Book 2 by Jo-Ann Roberts

 Cuddle up with a sweet historical romance this weekend~

Can a U.S. marshal's steadfast love along with his dream for a home and a family be enough to heal a schoolteacher's wounded heart?

About the Book!

Posey Campbell couldn’t understand why her love life, or lack thereof, was of such interest to her family and friends. Having endured one ill-fated relationship, she resigned herself to living out her days as New Hope’s spinster schoolteacher…until an unkempt U.S. marshal with inviting grey eyes and a kiss-me-smile came to town turning her well-ordered life off-kilter.

Glad for a temporary assignment keeping him in one place, Grayson Barrett never expected to find love, let alone a wife, a set of orphans, and a life he’d feared had passed him by.

When a secret from Posey’s past comes to light will Gray’s steadfast love be enough to convince her he is the right man? Or will an old nemesis put an end to their love before it begins? 

About Jo-Ann

Born and raised in western Massachusetts, Jo-Ann Roberts was fascinated by America’s Old West and always felt she was
destined to travel on a wagon train following the Oregon Trail. With her love of history and reading, she began reading historical romance during high school and college. Victoria Holt, Jude Deveraux, and Roseanne Bittner were among her favorites. Influenced by her father, she fell in love with John Wayne, James Garner, and her all-time favorite, James Stewart and grew up watching Wagon Train, Bonanza and Rawhide.

A firm believer in HEA with a healthy dose of realism, Jo-Ann strives to give her readers a sweet historical romance while imparting carefully researched historical facts, personalities, and experiences relative to the time period. Her romances take her readers back to a simpler time to escape the stress of modern life by living in a small town where families and friends help one another find love and happiness.

When she isn’t creating believable plots and relatable heroes and heroines, Jo-Ann enjoys spending time with her husband, children and grandson. She also enjoys baking, quilting, and eating way too much chocolate.

After 38 years in public education in Connecticut and Maryland, she now calls North Carolina home. She is a member of Romance Writers of America and Heart of Carolina RWA.
