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.
