A lady's mission of revenge...
Lady Hannah Steers has three reasons to loathe and despise Ross Jameson. He's a scandalous libertine, he stole her home, and he was responsible for the death of her brother! Determined to expose Ross for the rogue he is, Hannah dons a disguise and infiltrates his home as the new housekeeper. Unfortunately this scoundrel proves himself to be the epitome of temptation, and instead of building a case against him Hannah finds herself in a position she never expected...falling head over heels in love with him!

One day, while vacuuming, a title floated into my odd head. That Despicable Rogue. I remember thinking, that's a good title and assumed somebody else had written it. When I checked the internet and realised they hadn't, I decided to. I had a title but no story and certainly no characters aside from my despicable rogue. I had no idea if he was despicable or if people simply thought he was.Fortunately, my husband is fond of analogies. One of my favourites is a story about two brothers. One is a successful doctor and the other is a low-life drunk with no job. Their father was a cruel and violent man. One day the brothers were both asked the same question- why are have you turned out theway you are? Despite the vast difference in their lives, both brothers gave exactly the same answer, "It is hardly a surprise when you had a father like mine?"
It is an extreme example, I know, but the past shapes us all. That is a fact. Sometimes it makes us into better people, other times it holds us back and stops us living life to the full. In my novel, That Despicable Rogue, I created two people who are shaped by their pasts.
Ross Jameson has dragged himself out of the gutter and done everything possible to make sure he never has to go there again. Lady Hannah Steers has had her life destroyed by the past and feels that she has no future.
Once I created these two people, and introduced them to each other, they pretty much wrote their own story for me. At times, I had no idea what they were going to do next. I hope that you enjoy their trials and tribulations as they seek their happy ending. An ending, incidentally, that they never told me until it actually happened!
When Virginia Heath was a little girl it took her ages to fall asleep, so she made up stories in her head to help pass the time while she was staring at the ceiling. As she got older, the stories became more complicated, sometimes taking weeks to get to the happy ending. Then one day, she decided to embrace the insomnia and start writing them down. But it still takes her ages to fall asleep.
