Idly casting around for a part time job.
I guess while I was raising kids and writing evenings and weekends, I should have taken some college/training classes.
But I was busy.
So now, my job skills are rusty. I did work retail for a few years when the boys were in preschool, before I had my last baby. I also did some proofreading/editing/formatting at home before I started homeschooling. But right now, I'm kind of at a crossroads, wondering what to do next.
(See what I did there, with the title?)
SO ANYWAY, do me a favor and pre-order Chevalier!
If you are a personal friend of mine or a review blogger, hit me up for an ebook copy. I'm allowed to give away a certain number free and I have about 4 of those left. Though if a couple of the blog sites I sent it to never review it, do I get to give away those again?
Emmanuel, Chevalier de Cantière, youngest son of a baron, is happiest raising horses far from his complicated family. When news comes his mother is deathly ill, he races to her side only to find she has apparently recovered and moved on, leaving behind her companion, Catherine.
Catherine de Fouet blends into the background, saving up so she’ll never have to wait on waspish, scheming old ladies like the baronesse again. She has no interest in a resentful gentleman, estranged from his mother, no matter how broad his shoulders or intriguing the wounded soul behind his handsome face. She just needs someone to escort her back to Versailles.
But Catherine is suspected of poisoning the baronesse. She rebuffs a pushy courtier who tries to use blackmail to make her his mistress, and her reputation hangs by a thread.
The chevalier wants more than anything to protect this woman whose prickly exterior hides sweetness and passion. They need his family to help him through court intrigues—almost as much as they need each other.
