September 2013 Salon!

We had a lovely evening at the September Salon!

We were so pleased to welcome back Heather McCollum, founder of the Shout Against the Whisper campaign against ovarian cancer.  September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness month, and she spoke a little about her own fight and informed us all about the near silent symptoms of this deadly disease.

A great crowd came out to celebrate Romance and support our fabulous charities.

Everyone was thrilled to hear Sarra Cannon read from her New Adult Romance, The Trouble with Goodbye.

Samantha Kane had us all grinning as she read from her Regency Historical Tempting a Devil.

And Deb Marlowe rounded out the night with another Regency Historical as she read from her novella, An Unexpected Encounter.

See you in October!

At the September Salon...

We're excited to have New Adult author SARRA CANNON reading from her latest release

One night can change everything…

Two years ago, Leigh Anne Davis shocked everyone in tiny Fairhope, Georgia when she broke up with her wealthy boyfriend to attend an Ivy League university a thousand miles away. At school, she finds a happiness and independence she’s never known.

Until one terrifying night takes it all away from her.

With no place else to go, Leigh Anne heads home to reclaim her old life. A life she worked so hard to escape. On the outside, she seems like the same girl everyone has always known. But deep inside, she’s hiding a terrible secret.

That’s when she meets Knox Warner, a troubled newcomer to Fairhope. His eyes have the same haunted look she sees every day in the mirror, and when she’s near him, the rest of the world fades away. But being with Knox would mean disappointing everyone all over again. If she wants to save what’s left of her old life, she has no choice but to say goodbye to him forever.

Only, the trouble with goodbye is that sometimes it’s about courage and sometimes it’s about fear. And sometimes you’re too broken to know the difference until it’s too late.

Lady Jane's Salon RDU's own DEB MARLOWE will read from her latest Regency-set novella AN UNEXPECTED ENCOUNTER from her Half-Moon House Series...

Tall, practical girls might not be worth much in a man's world, but Miss Lisbeth Moreton knows she's worth more than the squire's prized heifer. To change her fate, she's run off to a date with destiny at the British Museum.

Her would-be swain never shows, but an unexpected encounter with Lord Cotwell and his lonely ward might lead to altogether new prospects . . . and perhaps to love.

And SAMANTHA KANE will round out the night, reading from TEMPTING A DEVIL...

As wealthy and beautiful as she is desperate, Harriet Mercer can have any man she wants—which makes picking the worst of the lot quite easy. By convincing the ton she is a ruined woman, Harry hopes to outwit the greedy, conniving cad blackmailing her into a loveless marriage. Roger Templeton is a rogue with a scandalous reputation, no expectations, and no shame. He is perfect for Harry’s fall from grace. Her brazen attempts at a very public seduction are delightful fodder for gossip . . . and pure torment for Roger.

With his pockets as empty as his heart, Roger is in no mood for games and decides to show Harry how foolish it is to tempt a devil. But behind her mesmerizing golden eyes, he sees something unexpected: a woman in trouble. Her scandalous behavior would be amusing if he wasn’t captivated by her lush, curvaceous beauty. Worse, every libertine bone in his body has turned traitorously noble. Only a rake would seduce her. But only a gentleman in love can save her.
