The Heiress's Convenient Husband

Coming April 2020 (in ebook and print from Edwards and Williams)

As the esteemed magistrate over the little Regency coastal village of Grace-by-the-Sea, James Howland takes pride in protecting his village and the holdings of his distant cousin, the Earl of Howland. So, when he discovers a young lady hiding in the family's castle, his heart cannot decide which comes first-her rescue or his duty.

Outspoken Eva Faraday has been exiled to the castle for refusing to marry the man the earl picked for her. Her late father made the earl the trustee over her considerable inheritance, which she cannot access until she turns twenty-five or marries. And if she marries, her husband controls the money. She's not about to trust any Howland, but James seems ripe for rebellion. To thwart the earl's power, the two agree to a marriage of convenience, but there are darker forces afoot. Eva and James must work together to solve the mystery and stop the earl once and for all to make a marriage that is far more than convenient.
