I survived my first meeting as President.
Actually it went off without a hitch, and to top it off, we had a great presentation from Deb Hale on the 13 Romance Plots that the group really got into and I walked away with three new story ideas. Can't beat that.
Unfortunately I didn't win the book raffle for Deb's upcoming February release by Harlequin Historicals, The Bride Ship, so I have to wait a few weeks to get my own copy.
The story takes place in Halifax where I live. It seems a ship full of women arrive in town and Governor Sir Robert Kerr is none too pleased, believing they are there to embark on a more scandalous endeavor than finding themselves husbands. A mistake that has him challenged to a duel by the women's unlikely chaperone, the lovely widow, Mrs. Jocelyn Finch.
I can't wait to see the sparks fly between these two and to read a story that unfolds on familiar turf as historic Halifax comes to life on the printed page. Deb has a wonderful way of spinning a compelling tale and I'm sure this book will be no different.
Now, I just have to bide my time until Harlequin sends out its February releases...
