Carole Mortimer: A Strange Summer

Hi Everyone,

Summer 2016 has been a very strange one for me, filled with personal sadness and professional happiness.

On a personal note I lost a very dear friend, after a long fight against illness. I spent many hours with him at the end of his life, and consider it a privilege to have done so. He was godfather to our youngest son, and an honorary grandfather to all six of our sons, and we will all miss him very much.
On the professional side of life the ebook published August 30th, Captured by a Gentleman (Regency Unlaced 6) hit #1 Gothic on Kindle. Thank you all so much! 

One of my editors told me long ago that she believed I worked better under pressure. To prove her right, despite the personal sadness of the summer, I have just finished and uploaded the finished copy of Challenging Gabriel (Knight Security 2) to all ebook retail sites. This is the third story in my Knight Security contemporary romance series. It is available for pre-order on all ebook retail sites, and will be released on September 23rd.

I’m currently writing Pleasured by a Duke (Regency Unlaced 7). You met Sebastian Falkner in Captured by a Gentleman (Regency Unlaced 6) and many of you have already asked me for Sebastian’s story—including my editor, who fell in love with him in book 6. This ebook will be released on October 28th. The pre-order for Pleasured by a Duke hit #1 Regency and #1 Gothic Top100 on Amazon during its first week on pre-order. That is incredible! Once again, thank you all so much for loving reading this Regency series as much as I love writing it.

Having successfully settled our youngest son into university last week, tomorrow my husband and I are going on a much-needed holiday. When we intend doing very little except eat, drink, and sleep – and not necessarily in that order!  

As always, the stories in my Regency Unlaced, Knight Security, and Alpha series are more explicit in their language and sexual content than my other books. In other words, they’re hot, so you have been warned!
