Friday's at the Piedmont Grille

On Today's Menu -- Me again.

Just wanted to share with you the new cover for my new short story.




           Lord Randolph Remington Culpepper, Earl of Greenleigh, is known in Society as “The Boring Earl.” His conversations rarely stray from the topic of Renaissance art or Etruscan statuary. He longs for something “more” yet cannot define it.
            Until he meets the ravishing Lady Illora Ryder. She’s young, beautiful, and dangerous, as she could expose Greenleigh’s secret life as an undercover operative for the Foreign Office. As the daughter of the Earl of Harrowby, (the third most powerful man in the British government), Illora knows more about diplomacy and foreign affairs than the Secretary behind the desk.
            When Greenleigh is given a posh assignment as conciliatory diplomat to the Russian Embassy, he thinks his life just got a whole lot easier. However, an old nemesis rears his ugly head and Greenleigh and Lady Ryder are merely pawns in the game played among the French, Russians, and England.
            As the two grow closer, Lady Ryder is caught in a deadly trap, and Greenleigh must expose himself, not only to the enemy, but to Society. Can he save her before it’s too late?



            I'm hoping to get it out before Memorial Day Weekend. Just a little bit more to go. 

Have a great weekend everyone!

Ooh, now I'm REALLY intrigued. I have a thing for Russians--not quite as bad as the chick in A Fish Called Wanda, but I totally empathized with her!
