A sneak peak at some of Author’s Umbrella Clients’ Most Anticipated Releases of 2022:  

We are very excited for what’s to come in 2022, and here are five titles that we cannot wait to share with readers in the coming year!
A DUKE FOR DIANA By Sabrina Jeffries
Designing Debutantes, Book 1
Releases May 21, 2022

Learn more!

A successful debut requires a smashing social event, and in this dazzling new series, the key ingredient is Elegant Occasions—three savvy sisters who reject working as governesses to become party planners. And if they, and their clients, happen to find love along the way, it just makes their task more rewarding…
The Widow Rules, Book 2
Releases April 26, 2022

Learn more!

Constance Lysander needs a husband. Or, so society says. She’s about to give birth to her late husband’s child—a man who left her with zero money, and two other wives she didn’t know about. Thankfully, she has her Aunt by her side, and the two other wives have become close friends. But still—with a baby on the way, her shipping business to run, and an enemy skulking about, she has no time to find the perfect match.

Enter Jonathan, Earl of Sykeston. Returned war hero and Constance’s childhood best friend, his reentry into society has been harsh. Maligned for an injury he received in the line of duty, Jonathan prefers to stay out of sight. It’s the only way to keep his heart from completely crumbling. But when a missive from Constance requests his presence—to their marriage ceremony—Jonathan is on board. His feelings for Constance run deep, and he’ll do anything to make her happy, though it means risking his already bruised heart.

With Constance, Jonathan, and the new baby all together, it’s clear the wounds—both on the surface and in their relationship—run deep. But when the nights come, their wounds begin to heal, and both come to realize that their marriage of convenience is so much more than just a bargain.

And don’t miss this upcoming anthology!
TO CATCH A VISCOUNT by Christi Caldwell
The Heart of a Viscount, Book 17
Releases February 22, 2022

Learn more!

Miss Marcia Collins’s cameo-perfect life is destroyed when scandal leaves her standing alone at the altar on her wedding day. Her heart shattered, she decides to embrace her ruined reputation and explore every forbidden pleasure. All she needs is a little help from her long-time friend—and society’s most wicked rogue—Andrew Barrett, Viscount Waters.

Andrew tried his hand at love and lost badly, and has no interest in marriage or respectability. Nonetheless, even he knows he should avoid Marcia and her harebrained attempts to embark on a life of impropriety. Andrew, however, has never done what he’s supposed to do, nor can he stand about twirling his sword cane while Marcia dabbles in forbidden pleasures without him.

When they push the boundaries too far, Marcia and Andrew must determine whether old secrets will keep them apart, or newfound love can forge a path back to a respectable, shared future.
