Compromising Kessen

What on Earth is a girl to do? Kessen, a native born American heiress, daughter of a British Earl, has suddenly been told she is to relocate to London to “reconnect with her roots” and experience a Season in London, under the guidance of her eccentric British grandmother. Within an hour of landing on British soil, Kessen has managed to turn her entire world upside down. And things only get more interesting after a ball to introduce her to society leaves her stuck in a sticky situation with the man she has managed to seriously annoy, a future Duke in his own right. After a rather notorious evening ending with Kessen and Christian, said future Duke, as front page news, Kessen is dismayed to find herself suddenly engaged. Now with only a week before the wedding, Kessen must learn all there is to know about her future husband, while he learns all about the wildcat he gained from America. Let the adventure begin.

Compromising Kessen is a thoroughly delightful story full of laughter and charm, adventure and love. The characters are beautifully written and this is a book that will utterly charm readers everywhere and bring back a belief in true love.


Book Blurb for Compromising Kessen

The last thing career-driven Kessen Newberry wants is to leave her home in Colorado to spend a Season in London, far away from her job, her friends and the memories of her mother. However, her father, the Earl of Newberry, threatens to disinherit her unless she gets in touch with her British roots. She complies, but has no intention of enjoying the experience.

That is until she meets Christian Vandenbrook, the arrogant and irritatingly handsome future Duke of Albany and her father’s business partner. Unfortunately, Christian hates Americans. And coffee. And apparently, Kessen.

A hatred this passionate can only lead to one thing… marriage.

Caught in the middle of a Regency-inspired nightmare, Kessen and Christian are forced to marry in only one week’s time. Resigned to their fate, the two resolve to give the relationship a chance—which would be much easier if everyone would stop interrupting them every time they found a moment alone.
