Without further ado…

The Bourne Matrimonial Agency has one rule: Never fall in love with the client. A simple thing to remember . . . unless you’re a matchmaker with amnesia.

The Duke of Rydstrom needs a wife. Preferably one with a large fortune and a complete lack of curiosity. The last thing he needs is a meddling matchmaker determined to dig up his dark family secrets.

All Jacinda wants is to find a bride for a duke. How hard could that be? He’s handsome, enigmatic . . . and hiding something. She’s sure of it. Determined to discover what it is, she travels to his crumbling cliffside estate. Yet, by the time she washes up on his beach, she can no longer remember who she is or why the duke is so familiar to her. All she knows is that his kisses are unforgettable—and she intends to use every skill she can to discover what’s in his heart . . .

When Miss Bourne can’t remember what brought her to his ancestral home, Rydstrom intends to keep it that way. Yet as the days pass, his true challenge will be safeguarding his secret while resisting this woman who—confound it all—may well be his perfect match.

HOW TO FORGET A DUKE (available for pre-order now, release date: May 29, 2018)



I’m crazy about the cover for HOW TO FORGET A DUKE! The Avon Art Department really brought Crispin and Jacinda to life (and they even added a forget-me-not string to her finger). I don’t know how they do it, but they keep making magic happen. <3

If you love this cover as much as I do, please spread the love on social media and give Avon Books a shout-out (on Facebook: and on Twitter: and let them know how amazing they are.


Warm wishes and happy reading,
