COVER REVEAL: The Baron and the Mistress by @KarynGerrard coming in 2015 #Historical #selfpub

Forget the horrors.

A shivering young woman leans against a lamppost in Shag Alley; the most notorious street of ill repute in all London. For Asher Colborne, Baron of Wenlock, this is a haunting vision of beauty and wretchedness. Uncharacteristically halting his carriage, he is shocked to discover the thin, dressed-in-rags creature is none other than Chastity Armitage, a beautiful angel who captured his heart at a grand ball more than two years past. For Colborne, her circumstance is a mystery he feels honor bound to unravel.

Chastity and her siblings have been on the run for more than two years. Desperate for food and lodging money, she is forced to sell herself. She never expected a tall, handsome man to appear as if from mist and change her life forever. She is given a choice, continue down the path of  neverending poverty or become the baron's mistress.

Though they are both determined the arrangement remain an emotionless business transaction, the attraction between them is scorching. Many barriers and obstacles lay in Chastity and Ash's path. Can the baron and the mistress embrace true love?

I'm a little nervous about this whole enterprise, as I'm self-publishing this 28,000 word historical romance.  (Heat level, very sensual)

First off, what a stunning cover by Cora, she captured the mood and aspects of the story beautifully, and wow, does the male model look exactly as I pictured Ash. Tall, young, and gorgeous.

I have no firm date for release as I am taking this self-pubbing thing as it comes and not laying deadlines on my self. Let's say sometime in early 2015, Feb or March. Or maybe later.

For now, I am busy with edits for my Kensington/Lyrical release, then I have to polish my Gothic historical romance (not erotic) for submission to a few new publishers. Then comes this story to get ready. So yes, I have a lot on my plate as the year winds down!

I will certainly announce updates as I progress with this new direction I'm taking. You can't move forward unless you take some chances!
