Winner, winner…Melanie Friedman!!!
This week I am featuring Catherine Hemmerling’s December 2012 release, TAMING HER FORBIDDEN EARL. Rogues, ladies and intrigue, oh my!
Lady Hannah Rochester is an intelligent, headstrong, outspoken woman surrounded by the typically simpering, flighty, nit-witted women of Regency London. Her inability to “dumb-down” has greatly inhibited her mother’s goal of getting her married. Apparently no man wants to be saddled with a woman that thinks! Except perhaps one … William Bredon, the Earl of Pembroke.
Everyone knows William Bredon, the earl of Pembroke, has a reputation as a captivating rogue, determined to never marry until his duty to produce an heir requires it. So when he invites Lady Hannah Rochester to dance, Hannah vows to keep her distance. But the undeniably gorgeous William, with his dark humor and seductive gaze, draws her in nonetheless.
Of course, Lady Hannah is not completely what she seems, either. A member of the dowager Lady Lancaster’s Garden Society, she secretly spends her days solving mysteries and uncovering intrigues, and when she brings William into the fold, a sinister plot develops that brings the two closer together. William’s protective nature ensures he remains by Hannah’s side, but he will not surrender his anti-marriage stance.
Can intrigue, passion, and maybe even a little bit of scandal reform the most notorious of rakes?

Catherine Hemmerling has been a technical writer in the software industry for nearly twenty years and has published many user manuals and technical documentation in that time. She has always had a love of writing fiction but has never pursued publication in that genre until now.
Hopefully it is the beginning of a long new journey with Lady Lancaster and the Garden Society girls. Certainly historical romance (especially the scandalous kind) is more fun than writing technical documents!
This author happily resides in Tehachapi, California (near Bakersfield – home of her Alma-mater!) with her family.
Catherine writes for Entangled Publishing’s Scandalous historical line and is thrilled to be part of their family of writers!
