I’m totally excited about our next guest. Please welcome…

Award-Winning Debut Author Darcy Burke!

Darcy Burke lives in the Willamette Valley on the edge of wine country with her husband, their two great kids, and three cats, two of whom are well-behaved (the cats, not the family—none of us behave). A 2008 Golden Heart® Finalist, Darcy is represented by Jim McCarthy of Dystel and Goderich Literary Management. In her “spare” time Darcy is a serial volunteer and pretends to be a runner, though she’d rather be drinking pinot.

Darcy’s upcoming May 2012 debut release is


Banished from London for her reckless behavior, Lady Miranda Sinclair is robbed by a dashing highwayman en route to the country. By offering him a kiss in lieu of the jewels she had to leave behind, she commits the very type of act that caused her exile. When her dour guardians extend her punishment to performing charitable work at the local orphanage, she’s further tempted by the home’s owner, a provincial gentleman who stirs her passion in a most wicked way…


Desperate to save his orphanage from financial catastrophe, Montgomery “Fox” Foxcroft leads a double life as a highwayman. The arrival of wealthy, well-connected Miranda, whose kiss he can’t forget, presents a lawful opportunity to increase his coffers. His problems seem solved—until she rejects his suit. Out of options and falling for the heiress, Fox must risk what principles he has left and take advantage of her wicked ways—even if it ruins them both.
