New Victorian historical romance novel
Hi, everyone. Well, after some frustrating minor glitches, I’m back and with some news I wanted to share with you. I have a new release (finally!); a Victorian historical romance entitled COURTING THE STATIONMASTER’S DAUGHTER:
Genre: Victorian romance
Setting: south of London, 1879
After Honorine Camden is jilted, leaving her stunned and sparking a scandal in her tiny London borough of Wallflower, she’s devastated. But when she overhears her father, the stationmaster, talking about arranging a party for their newly-minted underground railway station, she volunteers to help. Although she’s intrigued with his handsome assistant stationmaster, Shane MacIntyre, she never expects to fall head-over-heels in love with him.
Unfortunately, one tragic accident might derail everything.
“Mr. Camden, sir?”
“What’s the problem, Timmons?” Everett kept reading his notes as he asked the question.
“Your daughter is here. Miss Honorine.”
The news piqued Shane’s attention. Her father rose, as he did. Shane looked to his superior and sat back down.
“Send her in,” Everett said.
“Sir, she doesn’t want to come up. Wondered if you wouldn’t mind helping her downstairs. Something about her project.”
“What the devil?”
Shane bolted from his seat at this news. “I’ll see her, sir. I’m sure she meant to ask for me, anyway.”
Everett’s eyes narrowed a little. “All right then, but remember what I said.”
“Her mother is after my head, I know.” He smiled. “I probably wouldn’t be the first MacIntyre to have body parts on the line.”
“No doubt.” Everett waved him away. “Do what you have to.”
Shane hurried through the station to find Honorine waiting, her cheeks pink from the day’s frigid temperatures. Or was it from something else?
“Oh. I didn’t expect you to come.”
She clenched her fists too.
“Is something wrong?” he asked.
“No.” She deflated a bit, unclenched her fists. “I wondered, though we saw Lady Bascomb, it doesn’t mean we don’t still have a list of things to do.”
“Forgive me. Your father said Lady Bascomb might thwart us. Had I known she’d be so terse and cold toward you, I wouldn’t have—” He faltered.
But she guessed his meaning. “Allowed me to go?” The annoyed twitch of her lips told him her mood plummeted again. “I’m glad you accompanied me. I would probably be headless, now, if it wasn’t for you.”
“Why would she act in such a manner, though?” He frowned. “It isn’t like the Society women I’ve been acquainted with to be so hostile with a guest.”
“No. Not usually. You know I was—” Honorine gulped before continuing in a softer voice, “I was jilted by a former fiancé?”
He shrugged. What little he gleaned from Georgine and from Everett filled in the blanks of the gossip.
“Lady Bascomb is—” She sneered. “—his cousin. And she thinks I should be held accountable for his straying hands.”
Shane scoffed. “Blaming you makes little sense.”
“I agree. He was at fault; the devious strumpet is now mother to his illegitimate child. None of this is my fault, and yet—”
“Lady Bascomb is rich so she can say whatever she likes.”
“What she enjoys most is to blame and ignore me. This isn’t the first time.”
He jammed his hands in his pockets, and curled them into fists. “I’m sorry, Honorine, I would’ve discouraged your visit if I’d known the details of your trouble.”
“If she only admitted me because of your presence, then we’ve made progress. I hope it will extend to other things.”
“Juli D. Revezzo kicks off a new historical romance series on a high note with all of the atmosphere of an era long gone by! Wonderfully drawn characters, a heartbreaking event and the determination to find community cohesiveness [in which] Honorine finds [a] handsome Scot more than a companionable co-chair, moments of lightheartedness, and a budding romance, this one’s a keeper and Honorine is a gem!” ~ Dii, Tome Tender

Why other writing projects haven’t come together
For those of you waiting for the next Antique Magic book, it is coming, I swear. Basically, I just have a few more edits I want to make and it should be ready. (But really, it’s in that “It’s done! No, wait. There’s one more thing. No, Juli, it’s done” phase! *g*) So I’m projecting mid-
Fingers crossed and wish me luck in meeting that date. Until then, if you like historical romance, I hope you will enjoy Courting the Stationmaster’s Daughter (and, of course, reviews are always welcome. Good reviews lighten my heart and encourage me to keep writing and putting myself out there. I thank all of you who’ve enjoyed my work [whatever genre of your choice!] enough to to leave a kind word or two. :))
