The Rogue to Ruin cover!

Dec 6, 2018 | Uncategorized

Behold, the new cover for THE ROGUE TO RUIN (Ainsley & Reed’s story)!

I just love the colors. And that dress… I NEED that dress!  I mean, you just never know when you’ll need to drape yourself across a silk-covered chaise lounge, right? 🙂

The Bourne Matrimonial Agency has one rule: Never fall in love with a client, which shouldn’t be a problem when one’s faking an engagement to the rogue across the street . . .

Ainsley Bourne needs the family business to succeed. But one obstacle stands in her way—Reed Sterling, the huge, handsome, former prize fighter and owner of the gaming hell across the street. His scandalous customers scare off all her marriage-minded patrons and since the devilish brute has no intention of relocating, she sets out to ruin his unsavory establishment. Yet when a vile suitor from her past reappears, Ainsley hastily claims an attachment to the first man who comes to mind . . . Mr. Sterling, to be exact.

Reed doesn’t know who is more surprised by Miss Bourne’s declaration. She clearly hates him, and he’d never admit their arguments simmer with unrequited attraction. Something about the pleading look in her eyes calls to Reed, and against his better judgment, he quickly plays the part of the besotted fiancé.

Pretending to be in love requires a convincing charade. But with each tantalizing touch and every scandalous kiss, Ainsley starts to wonder if Reed was ever really the enemy at all.


THE ROGUE TO RUIN will be available July 30, 2019

**UPDATE** Congratulations to Luz for winning the Mug Giveaway! And thank you to everyone for sharing my excitement over TEN KISSES TO SCANDAL! <3

It’s a lovely morning in my corner of the world. Rain is making music on bright autumn leaves and the sky is a blanket of soft dove gray. In other words, it’s the perfect day for a giveaway!

Up for grabs is: a goody bag filled with a “warm wishes and happy reading” mug; a hot chocolate on a spoon (from a specialty chocolate shop near me); gourmet marshmallows; and a signed, sneak preview booklet of TEN KISSES TO SCANDAL.

The winner will get the chance to read the first three chapters of TEN KISSES TO SCANDAL before it comes out on December 24th, while sipping hot chocolate and lounging in her or his favorite chair. Sound good?

To enter: comment in the thread beneath this GIVEAWAY post and let me know, on a scale of one to TEN *cough* how excited you are for the release of TEN KISSES TO SCANDAL on December 24th.

It’s that simple. 🙂



I’ll choose one winner next Saturday, November 3rd. Best of luck!

The longest weekend of the year…

Aug 31, 2018 | Uncategorized

Hundreds of thousands of people are about to descend on my little hamlet for what the locals call “Blueberry Weekend.” The scents of deep fried everything, the hard thumping sounds of carnival rides, and the ripe frenzy of craft fever will fill the air. Basically an introvert’s nightmare.

So why don’t I just lock the doors and pull the shades until Tuesday? Two words: elephant ears.

Yup, those dirty, rotten, no good festival coordinators put elephant ears in the middle of the chaos. *sigh*
Nevertheless, I’m wishing each of you a happy (and delicious) Labor Day Weekend!

The truth about reviews

Aug 6, 2018 | Uncategorized

It’s never fun for authors to ask for reviews but it’s part of the process. The truth is, reviews give us opportunities to share more books with readers in the future.

So, if you would like to leave an honest review for HOW TO FORGET A DUKE that would be wonderful. <3

Warm wishes and happy reading,



Another sneak peek – Ten Kisses to Scandal

Aug 1, 2018 | Uncategorized

The page proofs are off!

I finished the final read-through of TEN KISSES TO SCANDAL and sent the galleys to my editor. This is so exciting! To celebrate, I’m sharing another snippet of Nicholas and Briar’s story (because it’s so hard for me to wait until December).

Warm wishes and happy reading,



“Come away from the door, Briar, and kiss me.”

The sinful timbre of his voice tumbled through her, stealing her breath. Her curiosity reached an anxious simmer, brewing hot and frantic beneath her skin. 

(available this December 💋)

A Special Thank You

Jul 29, 2018 | Uncategorized

I hope you are having a wonderful summer. Can you believe that July is nearly over? This year has been a wonderful whirlwind in the Lorret household, but before too much time passes I want to take a moment to thank each of you.

I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your support during the release of my first mass market paperback, HOW TO FORGET A DUKE. I’m grateful for the sweet messages, tweets, and posts on Instagram. And I want to give a special thank you to those of you who’ve taken the time to post such thoughtful reviews. As my publisher says, “a little reader loves goes a long way in helping the author.”

So to express my appreciation, I’m sharing a special summertime recipe with you for Blueberry-Lemon Scones. Enjoy!

Warm wishes and happy reading (and eating),
Viv 🙂
