I’m thrilled beyond words to share this with you!


A tenacious Regency matchmaker who thinks her client has something to hide goes on a quest to discover his secrets only to lose her memory and, in her state of amnesia, fall in love with him herself.

Jacinda Bourne and her sisters run a matchmaking firm and have the opportunity to attract more business when they sign the Duke of Rydstrom. Convinced he’s keeping secrets that are impeding them from doing their job, Jacinda sneaks into his home and finds a clue only to be caught by the duke in his office. After initially letting her go, he realizes she may have unearthed information that places people he loves in danger. Traveling to his country estate to block Jacinda’s attempts to learn more, he is stunned to discover she has been injured on her journey and has no memory of her life before she washed up on his land. Keeping her out of his business is futile, but he’s not prepared for how perfectly she fits into every facet of his life. His sister, staff, and nearby villagers all fall in love with her, and while he knows he needs to marry an heiress, he finds himself increasingly tempted to abandon duty and expectation and be swayed by love. Yet just when he decides he can’t live without her, a formidable aunt reminds him of everything he has to lose if he chooses her, and Jacinda regains her memory and her own moral code, which demands she give him up for his own good. Lorret sends up a rollicking historical romance with traces of the Jason Bourne saga in a domestic setting, boosted by vivid characters and lively storytelling.

A sparkling, witty romance that is both lighthearted and intense.

Ten Kisses to Scandal Back Cover Copy

Apr 5, 2018 | Uncategorized

Ready for the first glimpse of TEN KISSES TO SCANDAL?

Well then… here is the back cover copy, fresh off the press! 🙂


The Bourne Matrimonial Agency has one rule—never fall in love with the client. However, they never said anything about kissing a rake…

Briar Bourne’s matchmaking career could be summed up in two words—comic disaster. Unless she can learn about the irresistible forces that draw men and women together, her professional future looks rather bleak. But Briar has an intriguing plan—enlisting London’s most irredeemable rake to teach her everything he knows about attraction. Given his notorious reputation, it’s no surprise that Nicholas Blacklowe, the Earl of Edgemont, requests one thing in exchange for his tutelage. For every lesson, he wants a kiss in return. And what harm could there be in a simple kiss? After all, Briar would never fall for a scoundrel…

Nicholas has no romantic notions about love, and no intention of changing his ways. He’s only helping Briar so that she can find the perfect bride for his jilted cousin. Yet Briar is so clever, so curious, so candid—so blasted tempting—that soon, Nicholas can’t stop wondering what it might be like if he was irresistible to her.

Ten lessons. Ten kisses. And a million ways to fall hopelessly, scandalously in love.

TEN KISSES TO SCANDAL, available December, 2018
