Say You’ll Be My Lady!

February 22, 2022

Say You’ll Be My Lady, book 2 in my Unconventional Ladies of Mayfair series, is NOW AVAILABLE in print, ebook, and audiobook. Publishers Weekly calls it an “emotional tale with sparkling dialogue and well-drawn characters.”

Opposites attract in this Regency romance, where a proper gentleman who lives by the ton’s rules and a lady who lives to break them try to resist one another—perfect for fans of Netflix’s Bridgerton series.

The main characters, Serena and Charles, appeared in book 1, Not the Kind of Earl You Marry, and they take center stage in this story. Read or listen to an excerpt, then ORDER your copy in your favorite format!

Say You’ll Be My Lady cover revealed!

October 30, 2021

Say You'll Be My LadyThe cover for Say You’ll Be My Lady, book 2 in the Unconventional Ladies of Mayfair trilogy, has recently started showing up online at retailers. I love this cover so much and I hope you do, too! I think the cover artist really caught the essence of both Serena and Charles as characters. And that red dress was the perfect touch!

Say You’ll Be My Lady comes out February 22, 2022 in ebook, print and audio. If you already know that this is a book you want to own, I strongly urge you to go ahead and pre-order it now. Not only because pre-orders are tremendously helpful to a book’s rankings on online retailers (because the higher the ranking, the more the book is seen on the retail sites), but also because publishing, like pretty much everything else these days, is grappling with supply chain issues. The more early pre-orders that come in, the better the chance that retailers will have sufficient stock on hand. So, thank you in advance to anyone who pre-orders SYBML!

I’m still drafting Sweet Dreams Are Made of Dukes (book 3). The pub date has been pushed back to March 2023, which is a good thing because my deadline to turn it in was very tight. With the pub date pushed back four months, I feel like I have a little breathing room now, which makes me a much more relaxed writer! I wish I were one of those writers who can write fast, but alas, I’m not.

Not the Kind of Earl You Marry is Here!

July 27, 2021

Fans of Netflix’s Bridgerton series will adore this stunning historical romance debut, where a wary wallflower enters a fake engagement with one of London’s most eligible bachelors.

My debut novel, Not the Kind of Earl You Marry, is now available in print, ebook, and audiobook! This is the story of the fake engagement of Charlotte Hurst and William Atherton–which becomes more real than just pretend.

Booklist calls it “A perfectly executed Regency historical with an engagingly nuanced cast of characters, graceful writing leavened with droll wit, and a surfeit of sophisticated sensuality.”

April 11, 2021

Not The Kind Of Earl You Marry is the first in the Unconventional Ladies of Mayfair trilogy.

Fans of Netflix’s Bridgerton series will adore this stunning historical romance debut!

The one woman in London who doesn’t want to marry him is now his fiancée.

William Atherton, Earl of Norwood, is as shocked as the rest of London to discover his betrothal via an announcement in the morning paper. Furious at what appears to be a shrewd marriage trap, William tracks down his alleged fiancée before her plans can affect his campaign for a coveted political post. But then William realizes an engagement, however fake, may benefit them both . . .

Miss Charlotte Hurst may be a wallflower, but she’s no shrinking violet. She would never attempt such an underhanded scheme, especially not with a man as haughty or sought-after as Norwood. Yet his suggestion to play along with the betrothal has its merits . . . and the longer they pretend, the more undeniably real their feelings become. But when the true culprit behind their engagement is revealed, can their newfound happiness survive the scandal?

Here’s what people are saying about Not The Kind Of Earl You Marry:

“A terrific debut with one of my favorite tropes done brilliantly. Lovely, lively, and lots of fun!”Grace Burrowes, New York Times bestselling author

“Romance fans will be charmed by this sweet Regency tale!”Kate Bateman, author of The Princess and the Rogue

“Pembrooke is a talented writer with an eye for the quiet moments when the characters uncover the truth of one another – and themselves. Not the Kind of Earl You Marry is a beautifully written regency of the highest caliber. I am anxiously awaiting the next installment in The Unconventional Ladies of Mayfair series.”Elizabeth Everett, author of A Lady’s Formula for Love

Not The Kind Of Earl You Marry will be released on July 27, 2021 in print, digital, and audiobook. Pre-order your copy today!
