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

A Starred Review from Publisher’s Weekly!

Mar 19, 2018 | Uncategorized

I have such wonderful news! HOW TO FORGET A DUKE has earned a starred review from Publisher’s Weekly! I’m so happy and excited, and feeling so blessed that I don’t know what to do with myself. Well… other than drive to Starbucks to celebrate! 😉

I can’t wait to share HOW TO FORGET A DUKE with you!

From Publisher’s Weekly:

 How to Forget a Duke

Vivienne Lorret. Avon, $7.99 mass market (384p) ISBN 978-0-06-268548-3
In this clever, original standalone Regency set in the Whitcrest area of Sussex, the methodic Crispin Montague, fifth Duke of Rydstrom, meets his match in Jacinda Bourne, an impertinent, unapologetic busybody and part owner of the Bourne Matrimonial Agency. Crispin enlists the agency’s service in finding a wealthy bride who will ask little of her husband. An incomplete application and a suspicious letter lead the naturally inquisitive Jacinda to believe Crispin is hiding something; when she’s plagued with a bout of amnesia while trying to uncover his secrets, he feels obligated to take care of her. Jacinda charms everyone from the staff to the villagers to Sybil, Crispin’s mute young sister. Crispin’s need for funds to save his crumbling estate falls victim to his growing desire for the financially strapped Jacinda, whose agency’s only rule is “never to fall in love with the client.” Lorret proves her skills by making Jacinda’s character plain to readers even though she doesn’t always understand herself. Jacinda’s constant mischief and Crispin’s reactions to her behavior add welcome humor to their slow-brewing romance, and their constant bickering is the perfect foreplay. Readers will hope for Lorret to develop a series from here.
HOW TO FORGET A DUKE, available May 29, 2018

Beginning book #3

Mar 6, 2018 | Uncategorized

The Prodigal Post-its have returned! After organizing my desk, I found three wayward packs. Yay!
Seeing them in a tidy little stack, I have the illusion that everything is under control. That I won’t fill half a page with random story facts, then fill the other with a grocery list. Or that I won’t scrawl the “most crucial story fact EVER” up the sides (not realizing until later that it’s illegible). Yup. This time it will be different.
Welcome back into the fold, little ones. We have a new story to write.
