If you have not already figured out (don’t know how you would have missed it) Heather & I are ecstatic about RomCon. This is one of the few conventions for readers and it gives you the opportunity to spend time with other people who love to read as much as you do, how often does that happen, also allowing you to spend personal time with the authors. To make this more enjoyable for us, also more stressful at times, we decided to challenge ourselves and read at least one book from each author attending. For those of you who want to join us in the venture or even if you just want to become familiar with authors that you might not have given a chance before we are going to start RomCon Tuesday where we will introduce you to the authors we will be meeting in August.
Up this week we have: Historical author Liz Carlyle
Liz is the author of over 20 books, she does have a couple series but what she does do, and I really like, is connects the characters many reappearing throughout her books.
I also learned that she sets books in places she has seen firsthand and most of the time doing any research at that location.

Her latest release, and the one I will be reading for the challenge, is One Touch of Scandal.
Grace Gauthier had taken a position as governess hoping to find security and peace in a life that had very little of either. She’s always yearned for a good marriage, a family, and a home, but it was not to be. And when the brutal murder of her employer leaves her unprotected and alone—as Scotland Yard’s prime suspect—she has no one to turn to except the mysterious and reclusive Lord Ruthveyn.
A dark-eyed Lucifer, Ruthveyn guards his secrets carefully. His shadowed past as the Queen’s most trusted agent in India is the stuff of whispered rumor, as is his mixed ancestry. Deeply moved by her plight—and haunted by her beauty—Ruthveyn is determined to save Grace by unmasking a killer. But his growing passion for her soon places his own heart at risk and threatens to expose his dark gifts—and his dark society—to the world . . .
