Cheryl Holt's Lost Lords's Scavenger Hunt ~ Giveaway and Excerpt

I'm getting ready to release my 40th novel!  It's a huge career milestone for me, and I hope all of you will help me celebrate by enjoying my new trilogy, "The Lost Lords of Radcliffe."

The three books are a "real" trilogy, with one story leading into the next and the drama building with each novel.  I'm releasing them over the summer so you'll be able to read the 2nd and 3rd books right away without having to wait months or years to find out what happens.  HEART'S DELIGHT will be here on June 1st.  HEART'S DESIRE is coming on July 1st.  And Book 3, HEART'S DEMAND--my 40th novel!!!--will be here onAugust 1st.  It will be a great summer of sexy, yummy reading.  

The 3 novels will be released as e-books and print books.  The e-version will be available for all e-readers, but the print books will not appear in stores.  They will have to be ordered on-line at Amazon.  The covers are beautiful, the stories breathtaking, heartbreaking, dramatic, and thrilling.  I think it's my best work yet.  


I hope you'll spend the summer--with me!  And my Lost Lords of Radcliffe.  Coming June, July, and August of 2015.

                                                   
“You have a visitor, Mr. Scott.”

“I asked not to be disturbed. Were you confused by my order? Wasn’t I clear?”

“You were clear, sir, but she insisted on talking to you. She wouldn’t go away.”

“She? It’s a woman?”

“Yes.”

“If you couldn’t get rid of a measly woman, what good are you at guarding the door?”

“She’s a wee sprite,” the man responded, “but she seems ferocious. I didn’t think I should rile her.”

“She might bite?”

“Maybe.”

“Is she pretty?”

There was the most awkward pause as she was thoroughly evaluated.

Maggie could have answered the idiotic question herself. At the moment, she was attired in a drab gray dress, white fabric at the collar and cuffs, and buttoned up from chin to toes as any proper British woman should be. Her hair was pulled into a tight chignon, her gray bonnet shielding the vibrant red color and washing out her features.

She might have been a fussy governess, but in light of the dreary, poverty-filled world in which she existed, she deliberately strove to appear nondescript.

But she had a mirror in her bedchamber, and she could see herself in it. With her auburn hair and merry blue eyes, she was very fetching. She was too thin though, work and worry leaving scant time for leisure pursuits, and there was no overabundance of food at the mission, so her diet was rather sparse. Yet despite being slender, she was femininely curved in all the right spots.

While she wasn’t inclined to vanity, she recognized that she’d be incensed if she was described as plain or ordinary, and she snapped, “Oh, for pity’s sake. Just open the blasted door.”

“I wouldn’t dare to.”

Previously in her life she’d been a courteous young lady of good family and good reputation, but seven years spent interacting with street urchins had toughened her. Having shed many of her prior virtues, she reached for the knob and blustered in without considering whether she should.

“Mr. Scott, I presume?” She’d been prepared to march over in a huff, but she stumbled to a halt.

“Who the hell are you?” he barked.

She stood very still, determined not to exhibit by so much as the flicker of a brow that she was shocked or dismayed. Why, oh why, had she barged in? What was she thinking?

Evangeline Etherton grew up as an orphan and charity case at Miss Peabody’s School for Girls.  But she was always haunted by memories of the loving family and siblings she’d once had.  As a tiny girl, her father passed away, and her mother was wrenched from their lives and transported on a prison ship to Australia.  Her three brothers were cast to the winds of fate and vanished from her life, but she was too young to understand why.
What happened to her mother and brothers?  Might her mother still be alive?  And what about her brothers?  Evangeline vows to learn the answers to those questions and begins her quest to find them and bring them all home.

So begins CHERYL HOLT'S breathtaking new trilogy, The Lost Lords of Radcliffe...
MICHAEL SCOTT grew up an orphan on the streets of London. He has no memories of his past, but he's haunted by terrible dreams and always feels as if he lost something vital and precious along the way. Through cunning and determination, he's become rich, prosperous, and dangerous. As a brigand and criminal, he knows how to fight and survive any battle. But when he had such a rough beginning as a child, how has he managed to thrive so spectacularly? How can he ever learn the truth?

Although she's heard many vicious rumors about treacherous, deceitful Michael Scott, when she meets him, she can't help but fall under his spell. He is the most extraordinary person she's ever encountered. If ancestry makes the man, how is she to account for his remarkable traits? His drive and accomplishments have propelled him to the highest levels of London society—which is exactly where he seems to belong. How could a ruffian be so brilliant and successful? What is his true history? Can Magdalena help to reveal the secrets he's always been dying to discover?
