(The Hero Has No Idea How) To Charm a Naughty Countess--Release Week

This week marks the release of book 2 in my Matchmaker trilogy: To Charm a Naughty Countess. Yay! 

Michael and Caroline's story includes:
*a reclusive duke in need of a bride,
*a rakish widowed heroine determined never to remarry, and
*lots of Regency gadgets.
It's a role-reversed take on Pygmalion, with the heroine teaching the hero how to navigate society. As you can guess from the post title, he needs quite a bit of help. If this sounds like your jam, you can read Chapter 1 on my website here

Throughout the month, I'll be hopping around the Internet to share excerpts, answer questions, and reveal behind-the-scenes trivia about To Charm a Naughty Countess. I hope you'll be able to join me, because you KNOW there are going to be book giveaways. :) Here's what's coming up:

Historical romance author Theresa Romain pursued an impractical education that allowed her to read everything she could get her hands on. She then worked for universities and libraries, where she got to read even more. Eventually she started writing, too. She lives with her family in the Midwest, where she is working on her next book.
