It was common knowledge among the villagers of Hobbles Moor in the remote corner of Cornwall that their Earl was in need of a wife. So, one thunderous night, they gathered to cast a love charm and to beseech the ocean to deliver a bride to their bachelor lord. Perhaps the sea listened, for that night it disrupted the journey of a passenger unhappily bound for the country of Kurdufan, allowing her to flee into its violent waves. When Eden is washed ashore, she is rescued by the Earl, who recognizes her as THE woman of his dreams.
Maxwell began her writing career in 1991 while her children were still small. “It wasn’t easy,” she says. “I worked full time, my husband travelled, we had three kids, I volunteered and I was writing from four until seven every morning.” Now, twenty years later, she is the author of seventeen national bestsellers and her novels appear regularly on The New York Times and USA Today bestseller lists. Her recent bestseller, The Seduction of Scandal, the fifth and final book in her Scandals and Seductions series, was published in September 2011 and was part of Avon Books’ K.I.S.S. and Teal campaign marking National Ovarian Cancer Awareness month.
Maxwell has set all of her novels during the Regency time period. A rarity in the book world, she has published every one of her novels with the same publisher, Harper Collins/Avon Books. Her next novel, Lyon’s Bride, is the first of her The Chattan Curse series and will be on sale April 24th, following the re-release of WHEN DREAMS COME TRUE.
