Sealed with a Kiss Event with Pamela Sherwood


In a previous life, Pamela Sherwood earned a doctorate in English literature, specializing in the Romantic and Victorian periods. At present, she writes historical romance and fantasy. Her books have received starred reviews in Booklist and Library Journal, and Waltz with a Stranger, her debut novel, won the Laurel Wreath Award for Best Historical Romance in 2013. Devices & Desires, Book One in her current series, The Lyons Pride, won the 2017 Golden Quill for Best Historical. Pamela lives with her family in Southern California, where she continues to read voraciously, spin plots, and straddle genres to tell the kind of stories she loves.



Opposites attract when amiable sportsman Hugo, Viscount Saxby, attends a Christmas house party and falls hard for clever, artistic Lady Madeline Lyons, his host’s eldest daughter. For her part, Madeline finds herself unexpectedly charmed by Hugo’s warm brown eyes and even warmer heart. Despite several complications, which include her contentious family and his almost-courtship of another lady, their attraction blooms into love. Before their wedding, however, the couple must endure a separation when family duties summon Hugo home to his country estate. Yearning for his betrothed, he pens the following missive:

Bevington Chase, Nottinghamshire
11 February 1880



On receipt of her beloved’s letter, Madeline—never at a loss for words—composes this reply:

Denforth Castle, Yorkshire
14 February 1880

Check out Hugo and Madeline's love story in The Advent of Lady Madeline.



Hugo and Madeline’s love story began in The Advent of Lady Madeline, the prequel novella to my Lyons Pride series:

Responsible, level-headed, and invariably good-humored, Hugo Lowell, Viscount Saxby, has his plans for Christmas—and his future—all mapped out. Until a surprise invitation lands him at the country estate of Harold Lyons, the rich and powerful Duke of Whitborough.

Drawn into his host’s charming, often contentious family circle, Hugo finds himself matching wits and words with the Duke’s eldest daughter, Lady Madeline. Striking, clever, and as sharp-tongued as she is sharp-witted, Madeline is the polar opposite of the placid, proper beauty Hugo intends to marry. So why can’t he get her out of his mind? And how is it that she can persuade him to attempt things he’s never tried before? As Advent yields to Christmas, Hugo’s future becomes far less predictable…and infinitely more exciting.

  9. Was wondering, is it easier or harder to write novellas/prequels after or before you've already released your book?

    1. Hi, Lilah! Personally, I would say "after." Because I'd actually written Book One of The Lyons Pride before getting smacked on the head with two prequel ideas. Madeline's story proved fairly easy to write. Elaine's, on the other hand... not so much!

    1. Hi, Suzannah! I've been to some of them. While vacationing in the UK, I visited London, Yorkshire, and Cornwall. Other places too, but those three locations have figured prominently in my works to date.
