It wasn’t shy librarian Lola McBride's idea to crash someone else’s high school reunion.
Her best friend made her do it, insisting that having a little fun with a super-hot rebound would
make her forget about her recent breakup. That’s when she meets the hottest guy she’s ever seen.


Architect Luke Erickson had no idea attending his ten-year reunion would turn out to be so fun.
He catches the sexy brunette in a lie, and he counters with a proposal—He’ll keep her secret if
she helps get his family off his back by pretending to be his girlfriend at an upcoming family reunion.


From one reunion to another, Lola and Luke are suddenly spending a lot of time together. Good
thing they're only pretending, or this super-secret relationship could get really complicated.

Excerpt:
Copyright© 2018 Her Super-Secret Rebound Boyfriend
Kerri Carpenter


“If you’re not Kelli Martindale, who exactly are you? And why lie?”
Then the whole story came tumbling out.
“The thing is, my boyfriend broke up with me last week, and I’ve been kinda bummed
about it. So my roommate had this crazy, stupid idea. She thought I should have some fun
by coming here and crashing the reunion.”
Luke blinked. “You didn’t graduate with me?”
“No, not technically.”
“Are you even a librarian?”
“Yes, that’s one hundred percent true. Oh God, are you going to tell?”
“Depends. I have one more question for you.” He’d made his voice as serious as he could.
“What’s your real name?”
Her shoulders dropped in relief. “Lola. Lola McBride.”
“Anything else I should know?”
“I’m twenty-six. I don’t usually do things like this.” She took a deep breath.
“I’m clean, neat, and I can bake a pretty good chocolate cake. I say I’m going to a
body pump class at the gym sometimes, but really, I go to Target and buy a bunch of
useless stuff from the dollar bins.”
“I love to read. My favorite book is Wuthering Heights, although I read every genre of
fiction. Especially romance novels.” She blushed. “I mean, not the super dirty ones.”
A wrinkle formed on her forehead. “Okay, I read the super dirty ones too. I love them.
Don’t judge me. But I also donate to the local animal shelter. And I’m afraid of colonial people.
I’m totally boring, really.”
Luke didn’t have the answers to the universe but he did know that boring was something
that Lola McBride wasn’t.
“You must think I’m insane.”
Quite the opposite. He hadn’t met many women like her, and he was curious as hell.
He was about to say so when his phone started vibrating again. He saw another text message.
This one was from his sister, Gwen. Mom said you are bringing a date to our reunion. True?
False?
False. I’m not bringing anyone.
Oh well. I have this friend I’d love to fix you up with….
“Sorry. It’s my crazy family.”
It was official—his family was driving him mad. Why couldn’t they just back off? It was
bad enough that he was going to have to go to his family reunion next weekend, but to have
this kind of pressure about a date…
That’s when an idea started to form. He eyed Lola. She was clutching her basket of
Jane Austen books against her chest, looking nervous. Did she really think he cared
that she’d lied and crashed his high school reunion? He actually thought it was pretty funny.
“I’m really sorry I lied to you,” she said. She glanced down at the basket. “I know
I’m taking this basket away from someone who actually went to school here and…”
“Here’s the deal, Lola,” he said, interrupting her. “I won’t reveal your identity tonight.
You can keep your Jane Austen basket and no one will be the wiser.”
She blew out a sigh of relief. “Really? Ohmigod, you’re amazing.”
“But you have to do me a favor in return.”
“Anything.”
He flipped his phone over in his hands. “Come to my family reunion next weekend and
be my pretend girlfriend.”

Publication: Fall 2018 Endeavour Quill
Genre: Historical Fiction

What would you do to possess the most coveted color in the world? The year is 1758, and a headstrong woman artist, 24-year-old Genevieve Planche, is caught up in a high-stakes race to discover the ultimate color, one that threatens to become as deadly as it is lucrative. When Genevieve's mission is complicated by her falling in love with the chemist behind the formula, she discovers the world of blue is filled with ruthless men and women and how high the stakes really are. The story sweeps readers from the worlds of the silk-weaving refugees of London’s Spitalfields and the luxury-obsessed drawing rooms of Grosvenor Square to the porcelain factory of Derby and, finally, magnificent Sevres Porcelain in the shadow of Versailles. And running through it all: the dangerous allure of the color blue.


"Bilyeau’s sumptuous tale of mystery and intrigue transports the reader into the heart of the 18th century porcelain trade—where the price of beauty was death"’ E.M. Powell, author of the Stanton & Barling medieval mystery series.

Praise for Nancy Bilyeau's Fiction

"Bilyeau deftly weaves extensive historical detail throughout, but the real draw of this suspenseful novel is its juicy blend of lust, murder, conspiracy, and betrayal." —Review of The Crown published in Oprah, which made the book a pick of the month.

 "English history buffs and mystery fans alike will revel in Nancy Bilyeau's richly detailed sequel to The Crown." —Parade magazine review of The Chalice

 "The story in The Tapestry is fiction, but it is a sheer joy to have Henry’s court recreated with an eye to the reality of its venality, rather than the trendy Wolf Hall airbrushing of its violence and rapacity. The tone is always modern and light, but with none of the clumsy thigh-slapping faux period language. Bilyeau’s writing is effortless, vivid, gripping and poignant, bringing Tudor England to life with sparkling zest. If you want to see the Reformation from the side of the English people rather than the self-serving court, it is tough to do better than this trilogy." —Review of The Tapestry by Dominic Selwood, published in The Catholic Herald 

"As always, Bilyeau has done her historical homework, bringing the drama, and details of Henry VIII’s court to life. You’re basically watching the rise and fall of Catherine Howard, Thomas Cromwell, Walter Hungerford and Thomas Culpepper through Joanna’s eyes. Her private moments with the king were among my favorites in this book. This a true historical thriller. It’s a Tudor novel full of suspense, intrigue, brutality, and death. It’s a well researched page turner. If you’re looking for an exciting historical read, this will be on your list." —Review of The Tapestry by Sandra Alvarez for Medievalists.net

 “Nancy Bilyeau's passion for history infuses her books and transports us back to the dangerous world of Tudor England. Vivid characters and gripping plots are at the heart of this wonderful trilogy. Warmly recommended!” —Alison Weir, author of The Marriage Game: A Novel of Queen Elizabeth I and many bestsellers

 "Nancy Bilyeau's polished, inventive debut has all the ingredients of the best historical fiction: a broad cast of characters, well-imagined settings, and vivid story-telling... In Joanna Stafford, Bilyeau has given us a memorable character who is prepared to risk her life to save what she most values, while Stafford's desperate search for a lost religious relic will satisfy even the most ardent mystery fans." —Deborah Harkness, author of A Discovery of Witches

Booklist


DESCRIPTION:


After the tragic death of her husband and son on a remote island in Washington’s San Juan Islands, Eliza Waite joins the throng of miners, fortune hunters, business owners, con men, and prostitutes traveling north to the Klondike in the spring of 1898. When Eliza arrives in Skagway, Alaska, she has less than fifty dollars to her name and not a friend in the world—but with some savvy, and with the help of some unsavory characters, Eliza opens a successful bakery on Skagway’s main street and befriends a madam at a neighboring bordello. Occupying this space—a place somewhere between traditional and nontraditional feminine roles—Eliza awakens emotionally and sexually. But when an unprincipled man from her past turns up in Skagway, Eliza is fearful that she will be unable to conceal her identity and move forward with her new life.


Part diary, part recipe file, and part Gold Rush history, ELIZA WAITE transports readers to the sights, sounds, smells, and tastes of a raucous and fleeting era of American history.

Read an excerpt:

Chapter 1
March 30, 2016, 6 a.m.:
At two in the morning on a perfectly clear night, the full moon casting a beacon across western fields and along two satin rivers unfurling between dark mountains, Harold Munson ended his perfect day by crashing right through the clapboard siding of the Weigle Insurance Company office building.
Munson’s front bumper nudged the insurance agent’s desk into the printer, which interpreted the jolt as an instruction to print and began beeping its out-of-paper alarm. Dave Weigle, broker and owner of the company—awakened by a newly downloaded intruder alert app on his cell phone—threw on sweat pants and a jacket, padded out to his car in slippers, and arrived first on the scene.
He peeked through the window of the car in his parking lot and saw a man slumped over the driver’s side air bag, but Weigle was too preoccupied with the damage to his building to look closely. Unlocking his unscathed office door, he first examined the gaping hole caused by the front of a car ripping through the side of his building, turned off the annoying printer beeping, looked around at the mess, and called the police, just in case the new automated security system hadn’t notified them.
Then he took photographs on his cell phone. He had insurance. He might as well use it. If nothing else, he could prove to his wife he really had gone to the office in the middle of the night.
Munson had been going northwest toward Martinsburg, based on swerve marks made by his tires on the two-lane Charles Town Road, when his car rammed into the insurance building opposite the Kearneysville Post Office five miles west of Shepherdstown.
When Jefferson County Sheriff’s deputies arrived ten minutes after Weigle, they bolted out of their vehicles thinking Harold was dead drunk, slumped over the airbag like that, not moving and unresponsive to their increasingly loud, shouted commands: “Hands where I can see ’em. Step out of the car. Get out of the car now.”
Sheriff Harbaugh was sure he saw Munson blink as officers approached the closed window of the driver’s side door, guns drawn, yelling at him to surrender. They attempted to wrench open the door to pull him out of the car and discovered it was locked. Then, in quick succession, they noticed a smear of blood and brains on the passenger seat and dashboard and two small holes in the driver’s side window surrounded by rings of spider-webbed glass.
Drunk or not, Harold had been shot through the head. That might have been the cause of his leaving the road and plowing into the building. Whether he hit the building first or the bullet smashing through his brain had caused him to veer off the road would be determined by further investigation. At that point, the deputies called in the West Virginia State Police with its forensics apparatus and crime lab personnel.
After his initial reconnoiter of the Munson crime scene, a conversation with Weigle, whose cell phone alert app had recorded the moment of impact and whose photos of the scene might prove useful, Detective Sam Lagarde, assigned to the State Police Troop 2 Command, based outside Charles Town, reminded himself he was only a short trip on winding, narrow roads up and down a few hills from his eighteenth-century farmhouse. He decided to go home and let his horses out of the barn before he went back to the office to file his initial paperwork. When he got to his house, coffee was already brewing.
Lagarde stopped describing his new case and looked down into the mug of coffee Beverly Wilson put on the kitchen table in front of him. It was the right color. He took a sip. It had the right amount of sugar. He took two gulps. It was the right temperature. He felt like Goldilocks. He still wasn’t accustomed to having someone take care of him, or even give two hoots about how he liked his coffee. He marveled at his good luck. It was six in the morning, and Beverly was a tea drinker. He took a moment to savor this extraordinary gift. In a month or two, he knew, he would take it for granted.
He looked up at Beverly, then out beyond the kitchen door, which he’d left open to let in the bracing spring air, and glanced toward the barn. It was too much to ask.
“Yes, Sam.” Beverly made a face at him and then smiled and put a hand on Lagarde’s shoulder. “I let the horses out and made sure they have water and a few leaves of hay. They’re set for a while, unless you want to ride, in which case you’re the one who’ll have to catch Jake.”
That was all it took, the mild pressure of her warm palm on his shoulder for him to feel completely calm and that the world was in order. The whole thing—Beverly Wilson, in his house, sleeping in his bed, making slight snoring noises that forced him to acknowledge her presence was real—was a marvel to him.
Here she was talking to him as if it was the most normal thing in the world for them to be living together. How had this happened? He didn’t feel entitled to such a miracle. After love, women were the second most indecipherable mystery he had never solved. But then, neither had anyone else.
