Sealed With a Kiss: Beverely Kendall and Giveaway

Beverley discovered her love of books while growing up in, the then, small city of Barrie, Ontario Canada. With her love of books and romance, she always wished that everyone would find their happily ever after. Add in her love of London, England set in a period when ladies strived to be genteel and dresses could barely fit through doors, and it was obvious she could write nothing but historical romances.

As the mother of one too bright and mischievous young boy, she pulls full-time duty on all fronts. When she's not working full-time, mothering, writing or reading, she's probably sleeping and dreaming of a time when she'll have time for her favorite hobbies: knitting, crocheting and sewing.

Beverley has lived on two continents, in three countries, two provinces, and four states. She stopped her nomadic existence and settled in the southeast. All things artistic feed her creative passion, but none more than writing.

Places to find Beverley:

My Dearest Charlotte,

Today saw exactly two years since you been gone. It is also the day we should have celebrated two years as husband and wife.

I passed the day walking through the house I bought for us in London. Your bedchamber is exactly as you last saw it except for your wedding present. Three days after you left, it arrived. It was the wardrobe you saw at the cabin maker’s shop in Reading. You know the one with the roses painted on the doors. I thought of refusing it when it arrived or giving it away but I couldn’t bring myself to do either. It would have been like giving away a part of you and that, I simply could not bear.

Since you left, the nights have become nigh on intolerable. It’s when I miss you most, beside me in my bed. Sometimes I think I need you more than I need my next breath. And when I close my eyes and fall asleep, I dream of you and it is only in my dreams that I can breathe easy. That I can smile again because it is there I can hold you and kiss you…and make love to you.

But more than the nights, the mornings are by far the worse because I wake to the knowledge that you are still gone and I am still alone missing you desperately.

Your Devoted Servant,

Check out Charlotte and Alex's love story in An HEIR OF DECEPTION-Coming in April 2012!

A man devastated by love

After three years of carousing and debauchery, Alex Cartwright, heir to the Duke of Hastings, has put his life back in order. Having embraced sobriety for two years, he has no intention of revisiting the past or risking his heart again. But the return of the very woman who introduced him to the darkest side of hell brings not only the painful, haunting memories of bittersweet love and abandonment, but the son he never knew he had...

A woman silenced by secrets

Threatened by the revelation of a secret that could destroy her family’s place in society and forever tarnish a dukedom, Charlotte fled England on her wedding day five years ago. Now, although it appears that secret is safe, when Alex discovers her other secret—their son—Charlotte has an altogether different battle ahead. She must now fight one love to hold onto the other—the man whose touch still makes her burn, for the child who is her very world.

Check out Beverley's Novella All's Fair in Love & Seduction which is currently available for FREE.

She hopes to gain his affections

For Miss Elizabeth Smith, sharing her first kiss with the charming Lord Derek Creswell is nothing short of a dream come true...that is, until she is spotted by one of the most influential gossips of the ton. With scandal nipping at her heels, to avoid total social ruin, Elizabeth must present a fiancé by the end of the Season. But when the viscount proves reluctant, Elizabeth is forced to employ a seduction of a different sort...

He is determined to ruin her

Viscount Derek Creswell believes Elizabeth set out to trap him into marriage. After all, her sister attempted the very same thing with his brother six years before. Now the delectable Miss Smith expects a betrothal and a ring, while Derek finds her ruination infinitely more appealing...

But as Derek sets out to seduce only her body, Elizabeth is intent on claiming his jaded heart.
