Port Townsend, WA, February 19, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- February is Romance Month, and in keeping with that, Class Act Books is releasing the first entries in two new romance series.
The series The McCoys, by veteran author Toni V. Sweeney, deals with the adventures of the three sons of Quinton McCoy: Donal, Colin, and Padraig. Beginning in 19th century County Tipperary and crossing the ocean to the United States Nebraska Territory, each novel will be a standalone but also a continuation of the family saga.
The first novel in the series is The Honest Rake, Book 1: Donal.
Living in Regency London after his graduation from Cambridge, Donal McCoy has found his niche in life...as a genteel young gentleman by day but a rake by night. His father's demand that he marry and produce an heir makes a problem Donal thinks can be easily solved...until Love gets in the way.
Though Ms Sweeney's main genre is sci-fi/fantasy, she has written several romance novels which have been well-received by the reading public. Her romantic suspense novel "Tuesday's Child," written as Icy Snow Blackstone, won first place in Contemporary Romance from Paranormal Romance Guild's 2015 Reviewers Choice awards.
Sherry Derr-Wille's Never Too Late for Love is a mature romance dealing with a former WAC who returns to her home town after her husband's death. There the widow meets the man who was her armed services recruiter during World War II. As much as Adam Welter was glad to help Luella enlist, he wasn't glad to see her leave for basic training. When she returns fifty years later, he makes a determined attempt to renew the short but romantic acquaintance they both had as much younger people. There's only one problem: Luella feels she should remain faithful to her husband's memory.
Never Too Late for Love is the first entry in the Mature Love series and is also a standalone novel.
Ms. Derr-Wille is noted for her Rhonda Pohs mystery series, a police procedural concerning a Wisconsin policewoman and her high school coach husband. It is also published by Class Act Books, with seven entries in the series.
