On Tour with Prism Book Tours
Cynical and broken-hearted, Leticia banishes dreams of marriage. When her childhood friend, Tristan, wagers he can find her the perfect husband, she hopes the challenge will coax him to forgo his devil-may-care lifestyle. Meanwhile, Leticia throws herself into forming her charity school but meets opposition—even from the people she’s helping.
Guilt-ridden that his past mistakes robbed Leticia of true love, Tristan vows to set it right, but match-making has its pitfalls for a repentant scoundrel. When he finds two ‘perfect’ gentlemen to court her, he discovers his own deep feelings for the lady.
Though Tristan seems to reform, Leticia doesn’t dare risk heartbreak with a notorious rake. When opposition for the school takes a deadly turn, can Tristan protect her from a madman bent on destroying their dreams and their lives?

When charming rake Tristan Barrett sweeps Lady Elizabeth off her feet, stealing both her heart and a kiss in a secluded garden, her brother challenges Tristan to a duel. The only way to save her brother and Tristan from harm—not to mention preserve her reputation—is to get married. But her father, the Duke of Pemberton, refuses to allow his daughter to marry anyone but a titled lord. The duke demands that Elizabeth marry Tristan’s older brother, Richard, the Earl of Averston. Now Elizabeth must give up Tristan to marry a man who despises her, a man who loves another, a man she’ll never love.
Richard fears Elizabeth is as untrustworthy as his mother, who ran off with another man. However, to protect his brother from a duel and their family name from further scandal, he agrees to the wedding, certain his new bride will betray him. Yet when Elizabeth turns his house upside down and worms her way into his reluctant heart, Richard suspects he can’t live without his new countess. Will she stay with him or is it too little, too late?
Interview for Jacquie from It’s All About the Romance
What are your non-writing hobbies, or what do you do to relax?
I enjoy going for walks, hiking, and music in all its forms: listening to it, singing it, and playing the harp. I also enjoy old movies, and since my move to the Pacific Northwest, I have taken up gardening a little which I enjoy much more than when I lived in the Arizona desert.
Do you have any personal heroes/heroines?
My mom is my hero. She’s so hard working and unselfish and loves and serves others all the time. I also really admire Audrey Hepburn, who left behind a life of glamor in the silver screen to dedicate her life helping those who live in third world countries. Another is Esther from the bible, who had the courage to face almost certain death to save her people.
Have you had any unusual or noteworthy occupations?
Not really. My background is mostly administrative assistant type of jobs, but for a few years I worked in the reservations department of an airline. Writing has always been my first love and I am blessed to do it full time now.
What was your best date ever?
When we’d been married about two years, my husband came home with a rented tux, and rented evening gown for me, and took me out to a super fancy dinner and then we went dancing. It was a huge surprise and I couldn’t believe he’d put that much thought into it. It wasn’t even a special occasion.
Tell us something you are really proud of.
I’m super proud of my children and what fine young people they are becoming, with good and generous hearts, and the desire to develop their unique talents.
Can you confide something you wish you were better at?
Many things! I were I were better at plotting, sight reading music, remembering people’s names, and intuitively knowing what to say in emotionally-charged moments.
