A LITTLE MORE SCANDAL is the story of the original Christies. At the beginning of FLAWLESS, Sir William Christie had just died and left his kids with some tough choices to face if they wanted their inheritance. This is his story.
William Christie is not a man of good family, he’s made his fortune on his own, coming from nothing. After the death of his wife, whom he was married more for convenience and respect than love, he’s hardened even further. Everything with him is a means to an end. His end, his goals, his success.
Which is why he is challenged and at the same time attracted to Catrin Jones. She is from a decent family, but poor. The only survivor of a shipwreck. Military nurse. He wants to get her story so he can have control of a newspaper that is sure to go out of business and he wants to get his paws on it. The key is the exclusive of what happened to that ship and the story of the lone survivor. If he has to seduce her to get it, then so be it.
William Christie, the brute, the jerk, really I shouldn’t like him. He is everything that you’d expect me NOT to like. But I find myself captivated by his spirit, his drive, his passion. And I can say the same for Catrin, she’s straightforward, she knows what she wants and isn’t afraid to go after it. They’re perfectly matched.
It is bittersweet to see their story knowing they are no longer around, but now I really want to read Alex’s story, STARLIGHT. He is the son from Sir William’s first marriage.
A LITTLE MORE SCANDAL will release May 29, 2012

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
