Celebrate Meara Platt's new release, The Viscount's Rose!

Are you looking for a great new historical romance? Meara Platt has a great new book that is releasing today, The Viscount's Rose. I hope you will check it out.


When Rose Farthingale is saved from the rubble of her pottery workshop, she knows that she must repay this debt to her handsome rescuer by abducting him (at his family’s desperate urging) in order to save him from the clutches of the scheming woman he is presently courting and intending to marry. But Rose never expects to be abducted with him, or to fall in love with him over the course of their captivity. 

Viscount Julian Emory is a secret agent of the Crown on an important mission to destroy the spy ring Napoleon has established in London. The woman he’s pretending to court is one of Napoleon’s most important spies, for only she knows the identity of the traitor within the royal inner circle. He’s purposely encouraged the courtship and marriage rumors in the hope she will make a slip and disclose the traitor’s identity, but his meddlesome family has just ruined his plans. By forcing him into close quarters with Rose Farthingale, they've put both his mission and this delectable innocent in danger. Can he keep himself from falling in love with Rose long enough to bring down Napoleon’s spy organization?




TEASER

"He hadn’t stripped her of the camisole, intending for that flimsy fabric to act as a protective barrier between them, but it was too easily nudged aside by the tug of his finger so that the sleeves fell off her shoulders. A second tug brought the rest of the delicate bodice down with it around her waist. His knuckle grazed over one of her exposed nipples, causing it to pucker into a hard bud. His heartbeat came to a crushing halt. “Sweetheart, you’re so beautiful.”
 She seemed surprised. “Thank you.”
 He loved how unaffected she was about her striking good looks. “Polite, too,” he said with a grin, lowering his head to trail light kisses down the curve of her throat."



ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Meara Platt is happily married to her Russell Crowe look-alike husband, and they have two terrific children. She lives in one of the many great towns on Long Island, New York and loves it, except for the traffic. She has traveled the world, works as managing partner in a boutique law firm in NYC, occasionally lectures and finds time to write. Her favorite place in all the world is England's Lake District, which may not come as a surprise since many of her stories are set in that idyllic landscape. 

A close second is the rest of England and the British Isles, the original (and still beautiful) land of enchantment. For Meara, writing is all about enchantment, whether in the setting, the characters (such as Dragon Lords and Fae Kings), or in the author's voice. A great writer entertains, inspires, makes us laugh or cry, and sometimes makes us think. She is honored to know and learn from some of the best romance writers of our day. 

Meara is a Romance Writers of America Golden Heart award winner, and was thrilled to be recognized by this amazing organization. As with everything along life's journey, it is always sweeter when shared with friends, so Meara's special thanks goes out to fellow writers Pamela Burford and Patricia Ryan who have been with her from her very first baby steps as a writer.
