The Courtship of Edward Gardiner Available for Pre-Order!

I am so thrilled to announce that it’s finished!

When I began thinking of writing another P&P based story, one couple stood out: The Gardiners. They are such lovely people, and I started wondering what could have brought them together. We know that Mrs Gardiner was from Lambton, or at least had lived some years there, and that Mr Gardiner would have been a Hertfordshire man before moving to London. The gears started turning, and I hope the result does these wonderful characters credit.

There was absolutely no question about who would do the cover- it had to be my dear friend Janet Taylor, who had been BETA reading the project from the beginning. She has such a heart for the characters and the story, and she did a perfectly stunning job bringing them to life on the cover. Take a look!


As much as I love the front cover, with proud Edward, bashful Madeline, and a few other characters who instantly pop out from the story, it’s the back cover that takes my breath away. There, we see the shadow of a very young, proud gentleman, as well as very young renditions of the two ladies who hold his heart.
