Introducing Nancy Bloom & Francis Carlyle from Trouble For The Leading Lady...

 I am so excited that the countdown has begun for the release of book 2 in the Ladies of Carson Street series, TROUBLE FOR THE LEADING LADY - out March 4th!!

This is Nancy's story - best friend and confidante to Louisa Hill, the heroine of book 1 (A Widow's Vow). Nancy is a prositute, but she is also a good-time girl who loves nothing more than entertaining the working classes in the local tavern, The White Hart.

It is while she is standing atop a table singing her heart out that Francis Carlyle sees Nancy for the first time and knows he has found the star for the autobiograpical play he has written. A play he is determined will be shown at Bath's Theatre Royal where he is the manager.

Things do not go smoothly for Nancy and Francis, whether together or apart - past trauma, current societal differences and future trust all hamper their chances of success... can they ever really become the ultimate team on and off stage?

I cannot tell you how much I love Nancy and Francis, they are (at least to me!) a match made in heaven...

TROUBLE FOR THE LEADING LADY is available for preorder right now - here is the blurb & buy links...

Blurb:

Bath, 1852.

As a girl, Nancy Bloom would go to Bath's Theatre Royal, sit on the hard wooden benches and stare in awe at the actresses playing men as much as the women dressed in finery. She longed to be a part of it all and when a man promised her parents he could find a role for Nancy in the theatre, they believed him.

His lie and betrayal led to her ruin.

Francis Carlyle is a theatre manager, an ambitious man always looking for the next big thing to take the country by storm. A self-made man, Francis has finally shed the skin of his painful past and is now rich, successful and in need of a new female star. Never in a million years did he think he'd find her standing on a table in one of Bath's bawdiest pubs.

Nancy vowed never to trust a man again. Francis will do anything to make her his star. As they engage in a battle of wits and wills, can either survive with their hearts intact?

The second in Rachel Brimble's thrilling new Victorian saga series, Trouble for the Leading Lady will whisk you away to the riotous, thriving underbelly of Victorian Bath.
