The Earl Next Door
(Brandon Brothers Book – 1)
Lord Maxwell Brandon is a flawed man. He lives daily with the ugly memories of the death and destruction he witnessed during England’s war with Napoleon. He has become a recluse, avoids people as much as he can, knowing anything can trigger the anxiety attacks that debilitate him. His only solace is the controversial column he writes anonymously for his brother’s newspaper, and the occasional glimpse of his enchanting neighbor, Lilliana.
Lilliana Staplehurst is about to be evicted. Having lost her parents in a horrible accident six months earlier, she knows the man set to inherit will be arriving any day to boot her from her home. The only distraction from her woes is her weekly correspondence with a mystery man who writes for the local newspaper. When he suggests they meet, she jumps at the chance to put the egotistical man in his place.
The two neighbors realize quickly they are destined to be together. Although they accept their feelings for one another and allow their love to grow, soon the memories from Maxwell’s past threaten what should be a happily-ever-after. Lilliana will have to be strong enough for both of them, to help him move beyond the past and embrace their future happiness.
About The Author
I love to write, but not about myself.
I love to write, and my stories will always have a happily ever after. I’m not a writer of angst, ‘cuz I’m a light at the end of the tunnel, glass half-full kind of a gal.
I love to write. It doesn’t matter if the setting is 1815 Regency London, 1850 Industrial Revolution Manchester, 1920 on a farm in Nebraska or 2015 in Chicago. To me, it’s all about the story, the characters and the romance.
I love to write, but not erotica. I’m an old fashioned gal. That doesn’t mean my stories don’t have sexual tension and loads of romance. It means I focus on love, not lust, long-term commitments, not one-night stands.
I love to write. I hope you love what I have written.
