Sealed With a Kiss: Maya Rodale and Giveaway

Maya Rodale began reading romance novels in college at her mother’s insistence and it wasn’t long before she was writing her own. Maya is now the author of multiple Regency historical romances. She lives in New York City with her darling dog and a rogue of her own.

Places to find Maya:

From the file of love letters that were never sent:
Miss Eliza Fielding to The Duke of Wycliff

From the charred embers of a fireplace in the servant’s quarters...

Your Grace,

Dare I put our intimacy in print and call you Sebastian? Or shall I address you as The Tattooed Duke, as all of London does? Dare I confess that I am the one who have named you thus? So many questions, so many mysteries, so many things I cannot say.

Yet I write this letter anyway and with thoughts of confessing my deception and speaking of the heart wrenching truths that keep us spite of kisses at midnight and late nights on the roof, looking up at the stars from the warmth of your arms.

The marble floor in the foyer needs to be mopped. Yet another edition of The Tattooed Duke must be written from my humble little bedchamber under your roof. I must go...and I will be thinking of you.

Lovingly, longingly, yours,

Check out Eliza and Sebastian's love story in THE TATTOOED DUKE-Coming in March!

Breaking news, scandal fans:

You thought you knew the dangerous Duke of Wycliff, London’s globe-trotting adventure addict. Here’s what you don’t know: he’s penniless. Sebastian Digby’s dukely lifestyle is over forever unless he finds a rich bride. But thanks to The London Weekly, everyone knows better than to tangle with this lothario. Besides (as one writer can testify), it seems that Sebastian has been unable to keep his hands of his own lowly housemaid…

And that’s a problem. A big one. 

Because that housemaid just happens to be me. Eliza Fielding. The same undercover Writing Girl who’s been exposing the Duke’s most intimate secrets to the world. And now I’ve gone and complicated everything by falling love with him. Passion and deception have never been so delicious, but now the truth could destroy everything. This is more than a conflict of interest. It’s a seduction where love itself hangs in the balance.
