Thank you to the four people who made this book shine: my editor, Lorena Streeter, Rachel Jones, Kate McKinley, and K.B. Also thank you to the two Romance Divas who beta read for me and the many other Divas who offered suggestions on the book title and blurb.
I appreciate the kindness and support of Jax Cassidy who designed my book cover and gave me lots of advice during this process. There are also six women who mentored and supported me at various stages of my career: Crystal Jordan, Jennifer Haymore, Sabrina Darby, Madelynne Ellis, Belle Scarlett and P.G. Forte. Thank you!
Nadia Lee, I want to give you a special acknowledgement because I would not have become an Indie author without you. It was your honesty, openness, and willingness to educate yourself—and pass that knowledge on to other authors—that prompted me to take charge of my career and publish this book. Thank you so much for inspiring me and giving me the push I needed.
I would also like to thank my family and Kelley G. Lastly, thank you to my godmother, Sheilaa, and my beloved, Stephen. Your emotional support and willingness to listen mean more to me than you know.
Cheshire, England, March 1816
