Philip Mercerault and Sabrina Eversleigh first appeared in An Honorable Offer, a Regency romance published in1981. I've changed the title to The Offer to reflect its new status as an historical romance, and I've rewritten the novel extensively. The result is a complex, fascinating story with thrilling plot twists and richer characters.
The Deception first appeared in April 1983 as a Signet Regency with the title An Intimate Deception. I've completely rewritten the story so that it's now a full-bodied historical romance. It has a brand-new beginning and a brand-new ending, and I've improved everything in-between to make it richer, bolder, more fun, and more adventurous.
