Untamed May 2013, Destiny Romance

Outspoken and opinionated, Katherine Sutherland is ill at ease amongst the fine ladies of Regency London. She is more familiar with farmers and her blunt opinions and rough manners offend polite society. Yet when she hears the scandalous rumours involving her sister and the seductive Duke of Darlington, the fiercely loyal Katherine vows to save her sister’s marriage – whatever the cost.

Intrigued by Katherine’s interference in his affairs, the manipulative Duke is soon fascinated. He engages in a daring deception and follows her back to her country home. Here, their intense connection shocks them both. But the Duke’s games have dangerous consequences, and the potential to throw both their lives into chaos…

Wildly romantic, Untamed is a passionate and beautifully written debut novel. This decadent historical romance defies convention and will shock and delight in equal measure.

‘A  strong and original voice, a unique story and characters you won’t easily forget — this is an exciting and memorable debut. Anna Cowan is an author to watch. Anne Gracie

    I read just about every regency era romance written. You have a real achievement in Untamed. It honors the tropes, yet reads as completely fresh. If you read the biographies and letters of the period, it is clear that no fiction could trump the boundaries they transgressed in real life. Untamed is closer to their truth than we’ll ever know. Congratulations!

      Thank you Lenore! I am completely fascinated with how wild and human especially the upper classes were back then. I think the “rules” of society look much more rigid to us now than they would have felt to them, then. It’s something I’m always trying to play with in my writing, and I’m so glad you enjoyed it in Untamed.
