When Elizabeth Gilbert had to sit down and write the next book after Eat, Pray, Love, (which is, <gasp> ten years old this year), she knew she would never top the success of the previous mega-best-selling title.
But she’s a writer. So she wrote another book.
While I can’t claim to have had the same huge success with Law of Attraction, there has been a lot of fuss about it. I’m getting a ton of email and the reviews are very nice, too.
So are the sales.
I’m lucky in a way, because I’m writing so far ahead of the release date of a book that the next book was already written by the time Law of Attraction started getting the early reviews.
Still, after all the “This is the very best book of the entire series!” feedback I’m getting, I do feel a teeny bit like Elizabeth Gilbert and wonder how everyone will feel about this one.
In case you’re curious, I actually lean toward Veil of Honor as the more interesting story. But I might feel that way about Book 7, when I get to write it, too.
Last week in the newsletter I let everyone know that Book 6 of the series, Veil of Honor, was available for pre-order everywhere except Amazon, who won’t allow a book to be made available more than 90 days out from release date.
Now the book has by-passed that date and it is available at Amazon, too.
Bridget’s downfall at the hands of a duke forces Will to save her.
Lady Bridget is determined to marry well, to a man not of the great family.
When the Duke of Taplow takes advantage of her, William Wardell, heir to the Marquiss of Farleigh and great family member, is forced to marry her himself to save her reputation…which also happens to remove the family pressure upon him to wed and get himself an heir.
The agreement only brings more strife into their lives for they are both stubborn, willful and most definitely not the marrying kind…
Veil of Honor is the sixth book in the spin-off series following the historical romances of Scandalous Sirens. Scandalous Scions brings together the members of three great families, to love and play under the gaze of the Victorian era’s moralistic, straight-laced society.

A Sexy Historical Romance
Praise for the Scandalous Scions series:
If you are familiar with the previous series, I am sure you fell in love with the huge family like I did.
She is a go to author for me when I need a fix of historical romance.
Tracy Cooper-Posey takes us into the staid yet surprisingly bawdy Victorian Era where appearance is everything and secrets are held inside the family.
Thanks once again, Tracy Cooper-Posey, for giving us another great story and for giving me back my love of historical romances.
I love historical romances and this one filled all my likes, from a dashing, wonderful hero, a beautiful strong heroine, a love story to sigh over, side characters that are interesting, and funny, and move the story along.
I don’t often give books five stars, but I really enjoyed the mystery that puzzled all of the characters in this story.
I found the entire extended family intriguing because they, the women in particular, are very aware and careful of what society will think, yet they often have made choices that are deemed semi- scandalous.
A wonderful story set in the Victorian era of such strict social conventions and yet the main characters are shimmering with latent sexual tension. What a fabulous juxtaposition!
