Sealed With a Kiss Event - Anna Campbell


ANNA CAMPBELL has written eight multi award-winning historical romances for Grand Central Publishing and Avon HarperCollins and her work is published in sixteen languages. Anna lives on the beautiful east coast of Australia where she writes fulltime. Her latest release is A RAKE’S MIDNIGHT KISS, book two of the Sons of Sin series. Don’t miss her free short story, “His Christmas Cinderella”, in the e-anthology A GROSVENOR SQUARE CHRISTMAS, released in October 2013.

Places to find Anna:

Rakish arbiter of elegance Sir Richard Harmsworth meets scholarly vicar’s daughter Genevieve Barrett in A RAKE’S MIDNIGHT KISS and they have a rocky time of getting it together! They only truly begin to work together when the villain in that book, Lord Neville Fairbrother, threatens their lives. Lord Neville’s evil has extended to touch the characters in the next two books WHAT A DUKE DARES (out August 2014) and the fourth book in my Sons of Sin series which features the Marquess of Leath, Lord Neville’s nephew. These letters are exchanged during events in that fourth book, as yet untitled, when Leath enlists Richard’s help to track down Lord Neville’s violent and blackmailing cohort, Greengrass. You can read more about both A RAKE’S MIDNIGHT KISS and WHAT A DUKE DARES on my website: http://annacampbell.info/books.html





Check out Richard and Genevieve's love story in A Rake's Midnight Kiss


It Takes a Lady…

Brilliant scholar Genevieve Barrett knows how to keep a secret. Her identity as the author of her father's academic articles has always been her greatest deception-until a charming housebreaker tries to steal the mysterious Harmsworth Jewel from her. She doesn't reveal that she recognizes her father's devastatingly handsome new student as the thief himself. For Genevieve, this will be the most seductive secret of all...

..To Catch a Thief!

Sir Richard Harmsworth has been living a lie, maintaining a rakish facade to show society that he doesn't care about his status as a bastard. Yet long haunted by his unknown father's identity, Richard believes the Harmsworth Jewel will confirm his claim as the rightful heir. But when Richard sets out to seduce the bookworm who possesses the stone, he instead falls for its beautiful owner. But even as she steals Richard's heart, Genevieve will be in greater danger than her coveted treasure...

  44. Hi Anna!

    I fell in love with Genevieve and Richard when I first "met" them in A Rake's Midnight Kiss and loved there letters to each other!

    I must admit it took me back to the time when my husband would write to me when he was in the Navy during Vietnam (yes letters, no internet or Sype back in those days!). Of course it could be weeks between the time he wrote them and I received them but they were always re-read many times over!

    I think that actually reading someones thoughts make more of a impact sometimes than just talking to them. Even though I missed hearing his voice I think that the written word which is "thought" about before committing to paper cane more fully explain a person true thoughts as opposed to just an email that I might be sent to many people instead of just one!

    Are you still excited about getting a "real" letter instead of just a quick phone call or email as I am?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Jeanne, you put that absolutely beautifully. I so agree with you about the superiority of real letters. I think it's such a pity that hardly anyone writes them anymore. When I lived in England for two years, my mother and I wrote to each other every week. I kept all her letters and she kept all mine. Now she's gone, it's so precious having that record of that time. If we'd emailed - not that my mum would have emailed! - I'd have read and deleted.
