Sealed With a Kiss Event with Sally Orr


Sally Orr worked for thirty years in medical research, specializing in the discovery of gene function. After joining an English history message board, she posted many, many examples of absolute tomfoolery. As a result, a cyber-friend challenged her to write a novel. Since she is a hopeless Anglophile, it's not surprising that her first book is a Regency romance. Sally lives with her husband in San Diego, surrounded by too many nerdy books and not enough old English cars.

Find Sally at:


London’s most notorious rake—the man who wrote The Rake’s Handbook, Including Field Guide—vows to behave like a proper gentleman. When the fetching widow next door refuses his business proposal, Ross Thornbury tries to change her mind using words alone from his handbook. Instead, he falls for the woman who saved his life.


Spirited widow Elinor Colton fears his business will destroy her home, a cherished gift from her beloved late husband. Other gentlemen have tried seductive words on the wealthy Elinor before, so Ross’s rakish charms fail, and her refusal stands. She’ll discover true love a second time when Ross saves her family.


Check out Ross and Elinor's love story in The Rake's Handbook: Including Field Guide.



The definitive guide to seduction…

The Rake’s Handbook was written on a dare, and soon took the ton by storm. Now its author, Ross Thornbury, is publicly reviled by the ladies—who are, of course, forbidden to read the handbook—but privately revered by the gentlemen. Unfortunately, Ross’s notoriety is working against him and he flees London painfully aware of the shortcomings of his own jaded heart.

Spirited young widow Elinor Colton lives next to Ross’s country estate. She’s appalled not only by his rakish reputation, but also by his progressive industrial plans. Elinor is sure she is immune to Ross’s seductive ways. But he keeps coming around…impressing her with his vision for England’s future and stunning her with his smiles.

How does one resist the man who wrote the manual on love?

  7. Ha! I enjoy immensely the irony of a confirmed rake writing a book on seduction. Ross is fairly caught in a trap of his own making. :-) I'm so glad Elinor is a spirited female who makes Ross earn her love. Sounds like a delightful romance with humor! Thanks for the post. jdh2690@gmail.com

  11. I loved the letter from a reformed rake who knows he's reformed and is so happy about it. I also had to smile that she was spending time with her MIL because some of her mannerisms reminded her of her husband. :)

  16. What a shame so few write love letters anymore. A text, phone call or whatever doesn't have the same finesse or appeal.
