And read on, because every stop on the Tour has its own unique excerpt, so visit lots of stops to get an exciting view of this delicious new book.

Blurb: Sebastian Hewel has never been happier. But his life playing the role of his twin sister Bronwyn, the wife of Anthony Redbourn, Earl of Crofton, is about to change. Rumors abound that Bronwyn is using witchcraft to enthrall her husband, and false evidence has been found. Practicing witchcraft is a crime that could have Bronwyn brought in for questioning by the sheriff, and that would reveal Sebastian and Anthony’s secret.

Together they must decide whether it is time to lay Bronwyn to rest. Anthony intends to ensure that whoever implicated Bronwyn pays for the treacherous deed. Whatever happens, Sebastian and Anthony must prepare to face an unknown future together.

Excerpt:

“There are rumors about everyone at court. You would not believe the time people devote to talking about each other. And most of it should be forgotten,” said Manning.

“Does that mean there are rumors about Lady Crofton?” asked Anthony.

“Ever since she stepped foot in court, rumors have followed Lady Crofton like a pet dog—but any woman married to you would have attracted the same.”

“Anything we should be troubled by?” pressed Anthony.

Manning put his tankard down. “No, well, not really. You caused a smattering of gossip when you threw Lady Florin out of Crofton Hall, and a few loose tongues have said Lady Crofton must have cast a spell on you to keep the wild Lord Crofton in check.”

“A spell? As in witchcraft?” asked Sebastian.

“Or possibly they’d seen A Midsummer Night’s Dream once too often,” said Manning. “Listen to me, gentlemen. No one is pointing fingers. There are rumblings, but that is normal. If I were you, I would put it from your minds and forget them.”

The Actor and the Earl — Loved It! Goodies for You!

ActorEarl-final coverHi everyone —

I’m just getting back from RT and today we’re blasting out the first book in Rebecca Cohen’s series The Crofton Chronicles from Dreamspinner Press. It’s called The Actor and the Earl. I loved this book and think you will too — but then you know me and my cross-dressing guys!

You ready?

Blurb: Elizabethan actor Sebastian Hewel takes his bow at the proscenium only to embark on the role of a lifetime. When his twin sister, Bronwyn, reneges on the arrangement to marry Anthony Redbourn, Earl of Crofton, Sebastian reluctantly takes her place. At nineteen, Sebastian knows his days as a leading lady are numbered, but with this last performance, he hopes to restore his family’s name and pay off his late father’s debts. Never mind the danger of losing his head should he be discovered.

He didn’t expect Anthony to be so charming and alluring—not to mention shrewd. While he applauds Sebastian’s plan, Anthony offers a mutually beneficial arrangement instead. Sebastian will need every drop of talent he has to survive with both his head and his heart intact, because this is the best part he’s ever had.

Excerpt:

“So what of your sister, Mr. Hewel? Or were you always meant to play my bride?”

“Hardly. She has run off with a man she thinks herself in love with.”

Crofton laughed. “Clever girl.”

“So it seems.”

Sebastian watched as Crofton examined him closely, taking in his appearance from head to toe. “What now? You know what we planned to do.”

“I think the plan has merits,” Crofton replied with a sly grin.

“Her Majesty has granted me permission to wed Bronwyn Hewel. How would it look if Bronwyn were to refuse? But I think that we can come to an arrangement that will prevent me from having to sully the once-great Hewel name.”

Sebastian didn’t like the sound of that—the words too close to blackmail for his comfort. “Meaning what, exactly?”

“If you are willing to keep up this pretense, continue to play Bronwyn, then I in turn would take up the mantle of devoted husband.”

“What?”

“Your greatest performance, Mr. Hewel. Fool the court and polite society in an extravagant wedding, then retire to my country house to be my beloved wife for perhaps a year or two, after which time my young, but sickly, wife will succumb to a fever, and you will return to your life as Sebastian Hewel.”

For a moment Sebastian was unable to reply, Crofton’s shocking proposal robbing him of words. “But why would you want this?”

Crofton’s smile was predatory. “I have my reasons.”

“But—”

“No buts, Mr. Hewel. Do you have your answer? A life of luxury and your honor, or your family’s disgrace?”

Sebastian’s heart raced, but as he stared into Crofton’s expectant face, he really had little choice. “I accept.”
