Under the Kissing Bough box set by Barbara Devlin and 14 Amazing Authors (Pre-order)

Sold into marriage at sixteen, widowed at nineteen, and mired in a scandal of her own making at twenty-two, Lady Moreton has fallen on hard times. Alone, shunned by society, and on the verge of homelessness, she desperately searches for salvation. When Almira receives an intriguing invitation to join one of England’s most respected families for Christmas, she clings to hope, to the possibility of rescue, and packs her best gowns.

Heir to a tarnished title, Lord Nicholas Sheldon seeks to right the wrongs of his past, after his father is found floating in the Thames, and his younger brother faces trial for kidnapping a high-ranking member of the peerage. In exchange for evidence in support of the Crown’s charges, Nicholas wants only one thing: the beautiful woman who stole his heart, so long ago. Pinning his hopes on a kiss beneath the kissing bough, he enlists the aid of his onetime enemies, journeys to Portsea Island, and risks everything for a chance at happiness.

In December 2015, a group of authors banded together to bring you a very special holiday present: a multi-author, multi-genre collection of 15 new novellas featuring the history of the kissing bough, or our modern day mistletoe sprig, which dates to the Middle Ages. I researched the lore while completing my doctoral studies, and I've always wanted to write a book using the kissing bough lore. Available for a limited time, I am pleased to announce this spectacular collection with some of my closest author friends: Kathryn Le Veque, Sandy Blair, Suzanne Ferrell, Jeanne Adams, Anna Campbell, Tina DeSalvo, Joan Kayse, Catherine Kean, Anna Markland, Hildie McQueen, Meara Platt, Elizabeth Rose, Jordan K. Rose, & Lana Williams.

HOLD ME, THRILL ME, KISS ME: A Brethren of the Coast Novella, part of the limited Christmas collection, UNDER THE KISSING BOUGH
Only 99-cents for a limited time, at all major retailers. We hope you enjoy it.

Bestselling, Amazon All-Star author Barbara Devlin was born a storyteller, but it was a weeklong vacation to Bethany Beach, Delaware that forever changed her life. The little house her parents rented had a collection of books by Kathleen Woodiwiss, which exposed Barbara to the world of romance, and Shanna remains a personal favorite.
Barbara writes heartfelt historical romances that feature flawed heroes who may know how to seduce a woman but know nothing of marriage. And she prefers feisty but smart heroines who sometimes save the hero before they find their happily ever after.
Barbara earned an MA in English and continued a course of study for a Doctorate in Literature and Rhetoric. She happily considered herself an exceedingly eccentric English professor, until success in Indie publishing lured her into writing, full-time, featuring her fictional knighthood, the Brethren of the Coast.
