...no matter what the future held, whether their paths intertwined or separated, Brette would forever be branded upon his spirit and heart.
~Alex, Lord Wycombe
What would you sacrifice for your family?
Entertaining, mesmerizing laugh-out-loud historical Regency romance romps. The first three full-length installments of the Conundrums of the Misses Culpepper Series featuring devilish rogues and the capricious women who capture their hearts. Brooke: Wagers Gone Awry Brooke Culpepper resigned herself to spinsterhood when she turned down the only marriage proposal she’d likely ever receive to care for her family and farm. Heath, Earl of Ravensdale is none-too-pleased to discover five young women call the estate he won and intends to sell, their home. Desperate, pauper poor, and with nowhere to go, Brooke proposes a wager. His stakes? The farm. Hers? Her virtue. Blythe: Schemes Gone Amiss Intrepid and outspoken, Blythe Culpepper is dragged against her will to London for a Season. To her dismay, her guardian enlists the devilishly attractive Lord Leventhorpe, the one man she detests, to assist with her Come Out. Haunted by childhood trauma, Tristan, the austere Marquis of Leventhorpe, usually avoids social gatherings. So why, against his better judgment, does he agree to aid his closest friend in presenting the Culpeppers to the ton? Brette: Intentions Gone Astray A rogue turned rector, Alexander Hawksworth, prefers soirées to sermons and parties to prayers. After unexpectedly inheriting an earldom, he determined to make the precocious and petite, Brette Culpepper, his countess—Until he’s accused of murdering the previous earl. Brette adores London Society, but her world is titled on its axis when rumors circulate she’s a peer’s illegitimate granddaughter. Worse, a newly appointed guardian intends to force her into wedding an elderly lecher.

Q&A with Collette Cameron
Her lashes slowly lifted, and his heart turned to stone at the resignation and defeat in her eyes. “Then I regret, my lord, that I must decline your offer of marriage. I’ll not be married and widowed within a day’s time.” ~ Miss Blythe Culpepper & Tristan, Lord Leventhorpe
What story are you working on next, and what inspired it?
I’ve just finished SEDUCTIVE SURRENDER, the sixth and final book in my Highland Heather Romancing a Scot series.
This was Dugall Ferguson’s story and he had to wait a long time to have his tale told. I introduced him as a cocky, too-handsome-for-his-own-good sixteen-year-old in HIGHLANDER’S HOPE.
Do you have to be alone or have quiet to write?
Absolute quiet! My writing room is upstairs, away from the family and noise. I have a pair of headphones I put on to block out all distractions too.
What appeals most to you about your genre?
I adore history and learning all kinds of interesting tidbits as research for my books.
Blue! Specifically cobalt and royal blue. My readers are always messaging me on Facebook with some pretty blue thing they’ve found for me.
What is your favorite non-writing pastime?
Other than reading? I love to garden and hike. I live in the Pacific Northwest and we have lots of gorgeous hiking trails.
