Are you a Pinterest person? If so, you’re cordially invited to check out my new board for Engaged to the Earl! It was a lot of fun putting together — it’s kind of an insider’s look at my inspirations, influences, research, references, and allusions. Here are some quick samples:
The gorgeous cover of course needed to be included!
Visual inspiration for my heroine, Gwendolyn Penhallow . . .
. . . and some equally delightful visual inspiration for my hero, Christopher Beck.

“That horse has the devil in him.” “So do I,” says Christopher Beck.

A sweet little snippet.
Fragrant pink rose petals! Which are employed in a delicious romantic gesture . . .
Good advice, I think, for all of us. :)
