Maxim Trevelyan, reluctant Earl of Trevethick, has pursued the woman he loves to the wilds of Albania. Having fought for and won her, he now has to wed her, at the sharp end of a shotgun.
But can a reformed rake like Maxim ever make a good husband – or will his own notorious reputation and the scandalous secrets of his aristocratic family destroy his newfound happiness?
Alessia Demachi has defied and outwitted kidnappers and traffickers, and won the heart of the man she loves, but can she make this marriage work? Confronted by Maxim’s lurid past, his forbidding family, and the looks and whispers of London’s elite, will she ever be seen as Maxim’s countess – or will she always be his former cleaner?
From the majestic mountains of Albania, through the rural idyll of the English countryside, to the shady glamour of contemporary London, The Missus is a spellbinding journey of love, longing, acceptance, and redemption.
I’m delighted to announce that my new novel The Missus will be available on 20th June 2023 in the US, Canada, the UK & Ireland. It’s a follow-up to my book The Mister and picks up where we left Maxim and Alessia — in the wilds of northern Albania.
As you know, I’m a sucker for a passionate love-story and this continues in that vein. I’ve long thought about how romance novels end with the sound of wedding bells, but we never find out what happens next. Hence my tagline:
What happens once the glass slipper fits…?
Both Alessia and Maxim are heading into uncharted territory — and boy did I have fun going with them.
Though it’s taken me a wee while to write The Missus, I’ve enjoyed every minute, and loved getting reacquainted with these two lovers. My hope is that you enjoy their journey as much as I have and that you continue to root for them both.
