Vagina scented candles and other musings; Devere's Ward on sale now! (#RegencyRomance #99cents #KU)

January 2020 has brought us an increase in tensions in the Middle East,  Australia on fire, and Gwyneth Paltrow's vagina candle.  Imagine the hoohah over a hoohah scented candle!  

Amidst the kerfluffle, I read an article in The Guardian asking, 

Why is Gwyneth Paltrow selling a candle that smells like her vagina?

That's easy, you idiots. BECAUSE SHE CAN.

And it SOLD OUT in just a few days.

The Twitterverse has reacted predictably (and hilariously)--just search vagina candle on Twitter and you'll be amply rewarded. Here are a couple of the best:



It is hard to avoid concern about the decline and fall of Western Civilization.

On an completely unrelated note, my award-winning Regency romance, Lord Devere's Ward, is on sale this week. Enjoy!

Will he choose love or honor?

Orphaned Kate Scoville is trapped in a tower prison by her scheming uncle, who plans to wed her to his loathsome son in order to gain control of her fortune. Plucky and resourceful, Lady Kate escapes to London to ask for help from her guardian. She's sure the elderly Earl of Devere will help her in her plight.
Kate is astounded to find that the Earl has died, and his son has become her guardian. Quinn, the present Earl, remembers Kate from his childhood as an awkward child he loved to taunt and tease. 

But now his ward has grown into a beautiful young woman. Though honor prevents Quinn from making Kate his, their attraction is irresistible…

Will Kate tempt Quinn into abandoning honor? Will the wicked uncle trap Kate, compromise her and steal her fortune?

First published as Hopelessly Compromised by Kensington/Zebra Books. Winner of the Beacon Award for Best Historical Romance.
