The third stand alone novel, aka the 1927 book, has both a release date and a title!

Coming to you on June 2, 2015, we have… The Other Daughter.

This is a rare– in fact, perhaps a unique– occasion in which my working title looks like it might be the actual title. My working title for the 1927 book was His Other Daughter (abbreviated in my files to HOD). It’s currently up for pre-order on Amazon and B&N as The Other Daughter, which does have rather more of a ring to it.

The Other Daughter follows the adventures of a young woman who returns home from her job as a nursery governess in France on her mother’s death only to discover that her father wasn’t at all what she believed him to be. Among other things, he’s alive. And an earl.

With the help of a ne’er do well gossip columnist, Simon Montfort, Rachel infiltrates the glittering nightclubs of the Bright Young Things, determined to find the clues to her own past.

More information– and a cover– coming soon!

    Sounds great! Will we have to wait until the book comes out to learn why you named him Simon Montfort?

    Both titles are excellent. Before reading this blog I didn’t know that an author has little to no say over the title or cover. Has it ever been difficult to let go of your working title? Thought your comments about the title for Pink 1 in the genre post was funny. It must be nice that this title is so close to the one you use.

    AWESOME! I can’t wait to see a cover. This sounds great!

    Really anxious for this one to come out. It sounds wonderful!

    Sounds very alluring, Lauren…but teasing us 9 months in advance is cruel and unusual punishment. And I like the title!

    On an unrelated note – Bones just incorporated stoats into a death! Couldn’t but think of you

    Even the title has an inviting draw to it. Definitely anticipating this one!
