What's New

The first book in the Wayward Wallflowers series is on shelves now! I hope you enjoy Will and Meg’s story!

Here’s a short excerpt for you:

“You were probably already plotting ways to extricate yourself from our betrothal.”

Damn, but she had an uncanny ability to peel away his polished veneer and see the scoundrel who dwelled beneath. “Weren’t you?” he countered.

“I fear I couldn’t get past the shock. Besides, if the engagement had become public and was subsequently dissolved, no one would dream that it was by my choice. Why would a mousy girl like me willingly break a betrothal to a rich gentleman who was heir to an earldom?”

“Don’t forget handsome.” He grinned at her.

“The point is,” she said softly, “you had all the power. I had none. And I found that vexing in the extreme. I still do.”

Contemplating her words, he reached for her hands and met her gaze. With her hair gleaming in the moonlight, her skin glowing with passion, and her eyes challenging him to deny the truth of her words, she appeared anything but helpless. “I think you underestimate your own power.”

“I lack wealth, status, and beauty,” she said matter-of-factly. “Pray tell, what power is it that I wield?”

Slowly, he lifted his hand to cup her cheek and brushed a thumb over her satin-soft skin. “You have power,” he breathed. “You have power over me.”

MY BROWN-EYED EARL will be out October 4th, and I can’t wait for you to meet Meg and Will! Here’s what RT Book Reviews had to say about their story:

“My Brown-Eyed Earl is a fun and lovely story that’s heartwarming and joyous. Bennett’s engaging hero and heroine are nothing compared to 6-year-old twins who steal the show and readers’ hearts. But it’s more than characters that make this a wonderful read, it’s the heartfelt storytelling and depth of emotion as the characters’ growth takes center stage and a second chance at love seems possible. A delightful read!” —Kathe Robin

I’m so grateful to readers and bloggers who’ve read advance copies and posted their reviews. Thanks for giving the first Wayward Wallflowers book a try!

Happy reading always!

“Heart, humor, and a hot hero. Everything I want in a great romance novel!” —Valerie Bowman, best-selling author of the Playful Brides series

“I’m gonna need a minute or two to have a swoon over the Earl of Castleton! Oh. My. Word. What a hero! My Brown-Eyed Earl gave my heart a flutter, had me fighting back a grin more than once, and simply left me charmed.” —Herding Cats-Burning Soup.com
