· RULES OF SURRENDER on sale 10/27/15  /  RULES OF ENGAGEMENT on sale 11/24/15

And the teaser for Rules of Attraction:
· RULES OF ATTRACTION on sale 1/19/16

Avon Books/Avon Impulse will be relaunching three of the first books in Christina Dodd's beloved “Governess Brides” series with all new covers. The new covers showcase Christina as part of the Avon “Encore” program – where Avon takes the gems and jewels of the Avon collection, give them beautiful new cover art, and launch them back into the marketplace. The series originally launched some 20 years ago and are as fresh and fun as the day they were first printed.

I have a confession. In a former life, I was a poor but proud Victorian governess. That's the only obvious explanation for my obsession with governess stories.

I've read and re-read Jane Eyre and always fiercely wanted to be like Jane — proud, independent, clever and the winner of a noble (and rich) man’s heart.

I've seen “The Sound of Music” innumerable times and each time I'm swept up in the magnificent scenery, the thrilling music and the story of the poor but feisty governess who captures the noble (and rich) man’s heart.

For me, there’s something eternally enticing about the tale of a woman who endures personal hardship, tames unruly children, and at the same time finds, to her surprise, that she is irresistible to the master of the house. These women are seldom beautiful, not necessarily well-born, and actively resist love's allure. Yet love in the shape of a tall, dark and autocratic gentleman finds them, captures them, and by the end of the story they are wed to that nobleman and enjoying all the advantages of wealth, privilege and the best sex in the world.

The Governess Brides series begins when Distinguished Academy of Governesses opens its doors to train young women for respectable occupations:

Unfortunately, in RULES OF SURRENDER, Miss Charlotte Dalrumple discovers her first position is to teach Lord Wynter Ruskin, sadly uncivilized by his travels abroad, to take his proper place in society. Hint: it doesn't go well.

In RULES OF ENGAGEMENT, because of his unrepentantly disreputable ways, the Earl of Kerrich is in trouble with the queen. His solution: hire a governess and obtain an orphan to raise. That will make him appear respectable. Trouble: the kid is charming, he's falling in love with the unattractive governess … but other than that, what could go wrong? … Oh, so much.

In RULES OF ATTRACTION, Miss Hannah Setterington travels far into the lonely English countryside to take a new position and hears rumors that the master killed his beautiful young wife. Could any situation be worse? Yes, it could, for she knows the rumors are not true … because she is his runaway wife.

With eleven full-length books and one novella, the Governess Brides is my longest-running and most-popular historical series (six of the titles are on the Goodreads List of Best Governess Romances.) So when Avon Books announced they would repackage the books to introduce them to a new audience, and showed me the concepts, those compelling heroes with their direct gazes drew me at once into the stories.  I promptly sat down with the Rules books to reacquaint myself with the characters and stories and — guess what? I ended up reading them from beginning to end and living, laughing and falling in love along with my governess heroines. I've always said I write the books I want to read. I hope you read and enjoy the Governess Brides, too!

Giveaway/Excerpts for The Wicked Quills of London Virtual Tour

Forever Your Earl and Scandal Takes the Stage
The Wicked Quills of London # 1 & 2
By: Eva Leigh
Avon Romance

(The Wicked Quills of London # 1)

Eleanor Hawke loves a good scandal. And readers of her successful gossip rag live for the exploits of her favorite subject: Daniel Balfour, the notorious Earl of Ashford. So when the earl himself marches into her office one day and invites her to experience his illicit pursuits firsthand, Eleanor is stunned. Gambling hells, phaeton races, masquerades…What more could a scandal writer want than a secret look into the life of this devilishly handsome rake?

Daniel has secrets and if The Hawk’s Eye gets wind of them, a man’s life could be at stake. And what better way to distract a gossip than by feeding her the scandal she desperately craves? But Daniel never expected the sharp mind and biting wit of the beautiful writer, and their desire for each other threatens even his best laid plans. But when Eleanor learns the truth of his deception, Daniel will do anything to prove a romance between a commoner and an earl could really last forever.

Chapter One

“Though London presents itself to the world as the apotheosis of all that is moral and upstanding, it might shock our readers to learn that the appearance of virtue can be a very clever disguise. It is the opinion of this humble periodical that wickedness and deception are far more common than our readers may apprehend. Thus the necessity of this most respectful scrap of writing—that we may, through the revelation of the scandalous activities of our Town, provide necessary guidance. But leading a life of probity may be difficult, especially when presented with temptation…”
—from The Hawk’s Eye, May 2, 1816

London, 1816

A man rich in wealth and scandal walked into Eleanor Hawke's office.

Eleanor was no stranger to scandal. Anything immoral, disreputable, shocking, or titillating made its way into the pages of her newspaper—particularly if it involved the wealthy and elite of London Society. She detailed all of it for her thrice weekly publication, The Hawk's Eye. Nobody wanted to read about ordinary shopkeeper Mr. Jones who might or might not be spending time with the humdrum widow Mrs. Smith.

No, The Hawk's Eye sold strictly on the basis that it published the latest scandalous doings of Lord This and Lady That. All, of course, under the pretense of decrying the lack of morals in this fair city, and that these lurid activities ought to serve as object lessons to the young and impressionable.

And it was Eleanor's job as owner and publisher to see to the moral education of London.

Which was utter rubbish, naturally.

But scandal put bread on her table and kept the rain off her head, and she readily immersed herself in it—the spirit of free enterprise, and all that.

Still, when Daniel Balfour, the Earl of Ashford himself walked into the offices of The Hawk's Eye on a Wednesday afternoon, blocking the gray light as the door opened and closed, it was both shocking and inevitable that he should do so. Unsurprisingly, he clenched several copies of her paper in his hand.

Lord Ashford marched through the cramped warren of rooms, writers' heads lifting from where they bent over their desks to watch in open-mouthed amazement as he passed. Eleanor’s private office lay at the end of the corridor, giving her an ample view of the scene as it played out before her.

The earl stopped in front of Harry Welker's desk. The young writer stared up at the Lord Ashford, the men separated not just by the expanse of battered oak, but circumstance and birth.

“H…how might I help you, my lord?” Harry asked, his voice cracking.

“Tell me where Mister E. Hawke is.” Lord Ashford had a deep voice, rounded by generations of excellent breeding and noblesse oblige.

“Mister Hawke, my lord?” patent confusion in his voice.

Lord Ashford pointed to one of the papers he carried. “It says here that The Hawk's Eye is owned and published by one E. Hawke. Where will I find him?”

“Nowhere, my lord,” Harry answered. “There's no Mister Hawke here.”

The earl scowled, clearly not used to being denied. “This scurrilous rag cannot publish itself.”

“It doesn’t,” Eleanor announced, setting aside her quill and standing. “If you're looking for Miss Eleanor Hawke, I’m right over here.”

Lord Ashford looked directly at her, and for the first time, she had a sense of what a rabbit might feel like when sited by a wolf. But she wasn't the only one at a disadvantage. The earl couldn't hide the shock in his expression when he discovered that the publisher and owner of the paper was, in truth, a woman—which gave her a small measure of gratification.

He turned from Harry without another word and walked straight toward her. And she could only stand, pinned by his gaze, as he approached.

The closer he got, the more she realized how dangerous the earl was. Perhaps not in the traditional sense—though she'd heard and written about the duels in which he'd fought and won—but certainly in the realm of masculine allure. Her few times seeing him were from a distance: the theater, the races, at a public assembly. She knew him by sight, but he didn’t know her, and they’d never met. And in those instances her vision had been good enough to recognize that he was a fine specimen, well-formed, handsome—everything a rich and notorious nobleman should be.

(The Wicked Quills of London #2)
Coming October 27, 2015

Successful playwright Maggie Delamere has no interest in the flirtations of noblemen like Cameron, Viscount Marwood. She once paid dearly for a moment of weakness… and vows to rebuff the wildly persistent-and irritatingly handsome-scoundrel at every turn. But when pressure to deliver a new play hampers her creativity, an invitation to use his country estate as a writer’s retreat is too tempting to resist...

For years, Cam has admired Maggie’s brilliant work and he can’t pass up the opportunity to discover if the beautiful, mysterious playwright is as passionate and clever as the words that flow from her quill. He’s never offered a lady his bed without being in it, but if it means loosening Maggie’s pen-and her inhibitions-he’ll do exactly that.

But soon Cam’s plans for seduction become a fight for Maggie’s heart. He’s more than the scandalous, carefree rake society believes him to be… and she’s the only woman who has ever noticed.

Chapter 1
Enter Phoebe, in country dress.
Phoebe: What a task I have set before me!
The Shattered Heart

London, 1816

The curtain at the Imperial Theater fell. The audience rose to its collective feet and applauded.

Standing in his theater box, adding his own applause, Cameron Chalton, Viscount of Marwood was filled with excitement. Much as Cam enjoyed the theater—he went practically every night, and often saw the same work over and over, enjoying it anew each time—half the pleasure came after the performances.

“What say you, Marwood?” drawled Lord Eberhart, one of Cam’s companions for the evening. “Gaming at Donnegan’s? Shall we away to the rout at Lord Larkin’s? He’s brought in a whole bevy of beauties from France just for the occasion.”

“Why choose?” Cam answered with a laugh. “The night’s in its infancy, and we can do anything at all.”

“Good point.” Eberhart grinned. He wasn’t the brightest star in the firmament, but ever since Cam’s good friend Ashford had wed and settled into marital bliss, Cam couldn’t afford to be as selective with his company. Besides, Eberhart was always up for a night’s revelry. “Let’s go.”

“Not yet,” Cam answered, watching the theater slowly empty.

The Imperial was smaller than the other popular theaters in London, with only three tiers for seats and boxes, plus a smaller pit and orchestra. Yet it wasn’t shabby. The proprietors kept its appearance well. Painted plaster friezes depicting scenes from mythology adorned the fronts of the boxes, and blue velvet curtains draped the sides and top of the stage. Gas lamps provided lighting.

The boxes now released their occupants like tropical birds flying free of their cages. In the pit, the younger, wilder set laughed and boasted, jostling one another, flirting, arguing. Orange girls and women of fast reputation circulated freely among the young men.

Cam’s status prevented him from sitting in the pit anymore, but he missed it. The energy, the rowdiness. Still, he couldn’t complain, not when he’d just watched a performance of a work written by the celebrated and mysterious Mrs. Delamere. Not when the evening opened up for him like an endless banquet. One he would sample to his heart’s content. But not quite at this moment.

“Tell you what, Eberhart,” Cam continued, turning back to his companion. “I’ll meet you at Donnegan’s, then we’ll sally forth from there onto Larkin’s.”

“Going to circulate?” Eberhart said with a grin.

“This is my kingdom,” Cam replied with a wink. “I must inevitably tour my realm. Inspect its crops.”

“Of actresses.” His friend leered.

Cam tilted his head in acknowledgment. “Merely a part of my dominion.”

“Enjoy, Your Highness.” With a chuckle, Eberhart slipped from the box and out into the night. Once his friend had gone, Cam took one last minute to enjoy the theater’s house as patrons continued to leisurely make their way. The thrills from the performance still resonated in Cam’s body, palpable as electricity crackling along his veins. Though he’d seen this particular work several times, it never lost its excitement—the soaring highs and resounding lows that came from watching characters’ love and loss. He especially loved how the heroine thoroughly humiliated the aristocratic villain before gaining her tragic vengeance against him.

Early Review of Scandal Takes the Stage (The Wicked Quills of London #2) by Eva Leigh

Title: Scandal Takes the Stage
Classification: Adult Fiction

Series: The Wicked Quills of London
Format: Paperback; 384 pages
Publisher: Avon (October 27, 2015)

Notes: I was given an eARC loan by the publisher.

She hides a passionate nature under a cool and indifferent veneer
He hides the heart of a true romantic behind a rakish facade
He is all she despises
She is all he desires
He sees her as a challenge
She sees him as a threat to all she’s worked for
When her writer’s block threatens to derail her career, he’ll step in and use it as a means to get closer to her
Dare she give in to the attraction between them?
Will she regret it if she doesn't?
This is the second book of the lovely new series entitled The Wicked Quills of London and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Maggie is a playwright and all of London knows it. She's also Eleanor's best friend in Forever Your Earl. If you haven't read Forever Your Earl, don't worry. You won't feel lost.
This book focuses primarily on the couple whose story lies therein.

The life of a viscount is one marked by privilege, respect, and envy, but there is a down side. There are expectations, obligations, and a path that has already been chosen. Many feel trapped and limited. “For viscounts, feelings are not quite fashionable. Or useful. We are supposed to be dedicated either to the pursuit of entertainment, or else devoted to duty. Feelings have no place in any of that.” Thus, many rebel by over indulging in women, wine, and gaming until they can escape their duty and/ or obligations no more. Such is the current path Cameron Chalton, the Viscount of Marwood. His one true love is the theatre. When he meets the young and beautiful playwright whose work, The Shattered Heart, he admires, he is enthralled and never more so.

Maggie Delamere is a self made woman who had to find her place in the world on her own merits. She is no stranger aristocracy, but one of her previous encounters left her with a bad taste in her mouth that she is unlikely to forget. She doesn't hold them in very high esteem. Whenever possible she avoids them. That sentiment is reflected in her plays where members of the aristocracy are almost always cast as villains whom commoners must punish for their wicked deeds. When Cameron shows an interest in her, she hopes he’ll lose it quickly, but the man is nothing if not persistent. She immediately knows the gorgeous man will spell trouble, The question is, would that trouble be worth it?

I ended up giving this one 4 1/2 out of 5 roses. It was a fun, lighthearted, sexy romp of a read that I immensely enjoyed. The characters were fun and engaging and while I didn't fall into insta-love with Cameron, he eventually charmed his way into my heart. On the Lisarenee Romance Rating Scale, this one earns a SHOWER rating--a cold shower may be necessary (need I say more?). Some books should come with a warning - make sure your significant other is handy or your shower is in working order. lol

She knows he's up to something.

A deal is made.
He'll help her get into places she wouldn't otherwise be able to.
She'll try to find out what his real story is while pretending she doesn't suspect anything. 
Together they'll set London's ears on fire with the latest gossip of the ton and create one of the biggest scandals London has ever known when its most notorious rake falls madly and passionately in love with the authoress of a scandal sheet.
It just isn't done! 

This was a joyous read. I couldn't put it down once I picked it up. I immensely enjoyed myself. It was fun, witty, and cleverly written with a romance that had me grinning from ear to ear. I just loved these two together and when the story ended I wanted more. Luckily, I had the eARC of its sequel, Scandal Takes the Stage, but now I have to wait until April of 2016 for Temptations of a Wallflower to come out. Ah, such are the perils of an avid book reader. *GRIN*

Daniel Balfour, the Earl of Ashford, believes in the age old adage 'keep your friends close and your enemies closer'. He's known around London as a devilishly rich and good looking rakehell and one of its most eligible bachelors. In an attempt to keep London society from finding out about the disappearance of his childhood friend, Jonathan Lawson, Daniel has devised a plan to throw the local gossip rags off his scent. He'll let the Hawk's Eye's reporter follow him around town into some of London's most exclusive clubs and parties. He figures if they think they have full access to him, he'll be able to maneuver around them and conduct his search in secret. If Daniel can locate Jonathan before anyone notices, he may be able to prevent a scandal that would inevitably fall upon the Lawson family despite Jonathan inheriting a dukedom. Little does he know the reporter in question is female and that being in close proximity to the beautiful, smart woman could be quite a dangerous his heart and bachelorhood.

Eleanor Hawke has made it in a man's world. She's smart as a whip and lives on her own turns, A rare thing for a lady of that time. Unlike most women around her, she is in control of her own destiny and with her publication could ruin lives if she so desired. Interestingly enough, she's got scruples, integrity, and as she states, doesn't judge but rather reports what is seen. She is unlike the women of the ton, and Daniel finds himself utterly fascinated by her and, truth be told, a little envious. Similarly, Eleanor finds herself attracted and down right charmed by him, but knows nothing more than a fleeting romance could ever be theirs and therein lies her dilemma. Should she give in to her feelings or will he use them against her?

The song that came to mind as I read this book was Bonnie Raitt's hit song 'Something To Talk About'. The lyrics, you'll recall go:
"Let's give 'em somethin' to talk about
(Somethin' to talk about)
A little mystery to figure out
(Somethin' to talk about)
Let's give 'em somethin' to talk about
How about love?"

I couldn't help but give this one 5 out of 5 roses. It was a fast paced, fun, and delightful read. The only thing I wish the author had done differently, and by no means did this detract from the story, is to have had Eleanor conceal she was the owner of the scandal sheets in the beginning. It would have made the story more realistic and the author could have done some fun things with it, but alas, I loved it all the same. On the Lisarenee Romance Rating Scale, this one earns a SHOWER rating--a cold shower may be necessary (need I say more?). Some books should come with a warning - make sure your significant other is handy or your shower is in working order. lol An awesome debut for Eva Leigh (aka Zoe Archer) into the realm of historical romances. I hope we see many more historical romances from this very talented author.

Notes: I received an ARC for purposes of reviewing.

“Dev, you’re sweet,” she had said through her sniffles. “All little boys are. But then you all grow up to be so selfish and cruel. You were born to break women’s hearts.”

“I won’t, Mummy,” he had cried in alarm. “I promise I won’t.”

He had heard a laughing sob, as if he’d said something foolish. “Of course you will, poppet. You’ll do it without even trying.”

The people who surround us during life have the power to form, mold, and shape us into the person we'll become. When something is drilled over and over again into our heads, we have the power to do one of two things--believe it or defy it. Devon Ravenel chose to become the cold-hearted rake his mother predicted. Through the years, he encouraged the title and did everything in his power to earn it. When he encounters Kathleen, however, her declaration has the opposite effect on him, and for one reason or another he sees it as a challenge...

His attention returned to the woman in front of him. “No, I’m not soft-hearted,” he said in answer to her question. “In my opinion, a woman’s tears are manipulative and even worse, unattractive.”

“You,” she said with certainty, “are the vilest man I have ever met.”

Devon was amused by the way she enunciated every word as if it had been shot from a bow. “How many men have you met?”

“Enough to recognize a wicked one when I see him.”

He'll attempt to do the seemingly impossible--save Eversby Priory, the failing estate he inherited, and take on the responsibility of his young cousins.

Some people in life inspire us to be a better person then we ever thought we could be. Devon has just met his perfect match. He just doesn't know it yet.
This is the first of a brand new historical series by Lisa Kleypas. After a long five years, she's finally gone back to her roots, and she does not disappoint. This is a great story that I absolutely adored. What makes the story great? Well, it's not just one thing, it's many. It's Ms. Kleypas' ability to create a tangible ambiance out of paper, ink, and words. It's her ability to fashion characters that you can relate to, sympathize with, despise, be inspired by, adore, and. in a nutshell, feel strongly about and emotionally connect with. It's her knack for creating an environment that can be seen as vividly in the reader's mind as a painting hanging on the wall of a museum. Using each stroke of the pen and tap of the keyboard she engages a reader's senses in an almost magical way by bringing the sights, the sounds, the touch, the feel, and the smells to life by way of a one dimensional sheet of paper through the little details written therein. Plus, the attraction that stirs between Devon and Kathleen is highly combustible. The scorching heat created by these two practically ignited the pages as I read them.

I think everyone has encountered someone who has erected a false facade that they present to the world. Numerous people try to project an image of who they wish people to think them to be and of what they want them to believe. They create the illusion of the perfect marriage, of having no financial difficulties, and of having the perfect life. Others use a facade as a means to hide behind. To keep others at bay. A means for not showing who they truly are because they fear they are what they don't wish to be. I loved how Ms. Kleypas incorporated this into her tale and as the story unfolds we find out the reality behind the images people have cloaked themselves in.

I confess, I didn't think much of Devon Ravenel at first glance. He admits to himself, thereby, confessing to us, that he tends to lose interest in a woman within a short period of time. That he is a no-good, selfish womanizer, but the man who emerges as the story unfolds is a totally different one from the man he describes. Something about Kathleen brings out the best in him, and as she scowls down her nose at him disapprovingly it's almost as if she issued a challenge, and he wants to prove her thoughts of him are totally wrong. As he gets to know her, he slowly begins to realize his feelings for her run quite deep and he finds himself in a seemingly unfamiliar position of wanting a woman who is desperately trying (although admittedly not very well) to deny her feelings for him.

Kathleen isn't a very complicated person. She's loyal and fairly straight forward in her views of right and wrong. While she's only been married three days when her husband dies, she has become very attached to her sister-in-laws and the family estate and wishes to do right by them. She challenges Devon without even trying to by holding onto the preconceived notions that her late husband held for Devon. Before ever meeting him she believes him to be a heartless and a hopelessly in debt no-good poorer relation. Something in her disapproval spurs him to try to change that notion and prove her wrong and therein lies the fun in this book because while he's trying to convince her, an attraction starts to spark between the two.

I couldn't help but give this one 5 out of 5 roses. I loved the story and the secondary romance which I am so looking forward to seeing grow and mature in what I guess will be the second book in the series. I've now read this one twice and am still loving it just as much as when I first read it. On the Lisarenee Romance Rating Scale, this one earns a SHOWER rating--a cold shower is necessary (need I say more?). Some books should come with a warning - make sure your significant other is handy or your shower is in working order. lol I HIGHLY recommend this one. While I love all of Ms. Kleypas' books, her historical romances are made up of something special that I totally adore. I can't wait to read the next one.
