When not rereading Jane Austen, mucking about in her garden, or simply messing about with boats, Elizabeth can be always be found with her laptop, making up stories about heroes and heroines who live far more exciting lives than she. It wasn’t always so. Long before she ever set pen to paper, Elizabeth graduated from Hollins College with a BA in Classics and Art History, and then earned her MA in Nautical Archaeology from Texas A&M University. While she loved the life of an underwater archaeologist, she has found her true calling writing lush, lyrical historical romance full of passion, daring and adventure.
Elizabeth lives in Texas with her husband, the indispensable Mr. Essex, and her active and exuberant family in an old house filled to the brim with books.
From the moment Lady Quince Winthrop saw the Marquess of Cairn across a ballroom, she knew she had to steal something from him—perhaps just his gleaming silver buttons. Perhaps his heart.
Little did she suspect that toying with the Marquess would lead not only to larceny, but to lessons in kissing, and lessons in loving, that she would not soon forget. But the Marquess knows how to play the long game, and how to keep his larcenous lass waiting, and wanting.
What’s a lass to do before she goes mad about the marquess? Ask the braw man to kiss her, of course.
Check out Quince and Alasdair's love story in Mad About the Marquess.
