The next book

It turns out with the changes in writeon, one of the easiest ways to push excerpts out there, like for my latest book is to use a direct link to it.

The first draft is about 90% complete. I've finally settled on a reasonable title, "The Curious Profession of Dr. Craven" and am beginning the long process of editing, publicizing and all that rot.

It's a sweet romance, set in 1810 so I guess it's a regency romance, and it's more than a bit Gothic. It starts with the heroine waking up after she's been buried alive, had her body stolen from the crypt and taken to an anatomist. The trauma has left her memory somewhere else, and she slowly recovers. Once that happens, a complicated story ensues involving fake identities, false French Dukes at Almack's and various subterfuges until it all works out in the end and they figuratively ride of into the sunset together. Or at least to the vicar's to post the Bann's.
