Excerpt:

A ROGUE’S DEADLY REDEMPTION - Jeannie Ruesch

The house felt quiet.
But that was foolish, for it wasn’t as though Lily had gone through the hallways dancing an Irish jig. She could be found more often reading in a corner than holding court in their parlor. Many times Robert had walked into the room and not realized her presence for minutes afterward. She sat in the same place, curled into her favorite chair.
And when she ventured out, his wife always left behind a reminder—a blanket tossed over the chair, a book, a forgotten cup of tea at the table beside it.
Now that he thought of it, he wondered how often he’d walked into and out of a room without noticing her at all. A twinge of sadness tightened his chest. How far they’d come from the day they’d met, when she’d commanded his attention from her quiet perch in the corner of the room.
He would never walk into a room and find her again.
Startled by the regret that choked him, he turned back to the large stack of letters in his hand. Hers sat on top, opened by her hand, with unfamiliar words. He set it aside, not willing to face the guilt that would rise upon seeing her delicate handwriting. 
Flipping through the remaining letters, his lips pressed together as he noticed three, four—no, five missives from his eldest brother, the relatively new Marquess of Wayfair. Their father had passed on a year prior, in the middle of the night with no warning barely thirteen months after their mother had died, and Marcus had taken to the role as though he’d been born into it. 
The heir, the spare and...oh yes, there is a third son, too. What was his name?
Robert’s lip curled. Each of these missives contained some level of criticism and a demand for an audience. Both of which Robert intended to ignore.
He dropped the notes onto a table, and turned out of the room. Before he realized it, Robert stood at the entry to her door, just one door down from his and yet in another world altogether. He pushed the door open, but the room was dark. No fire to warm it with light. No candles.
So that was it.
Do you hate me so much then?
Her mournful words haunted the room, and Robert’s anger rose. He didn’t want her damn words in his ear.
The blame for the state of their marriage was his.  He accepted that, but they had long since passed the point where it could be any different. Some choices, some decisions, could not be undone.
He couldn’t change his direction now even if he wanted to.
She was better off without him. 



Author Bio:



Jeannie Ruesch wrote her first story at the age of the six, prompting her to give up an illustrious, hours-long ambition of becoming a Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader and declare that writing was her destiny. The journey toward destiny held a few detours along the way, including a career in marketing and design.

Her first novel, a fairy-tale like historical romance, was published in 2009, but the darker side of life has always captivated her. So after a dinner conversation with friends about the best way to hide a dead body, she knew she had to find a way to incorporate suspense into her writing. (The legal outlet for her fascination.) Today, she continues writing what she loves to read - stories of history, romance and suspense. She lives in Northern California with her amazing husband (who cooks, cleans and edits!), their son and a lab named Cooper. She can be visited at www.jeannieruesch.com or found regularly on Twitter or Facebook.


Author Extras :

1.    What do you love about the era(s) in which you write?
I have to admit that I’m fascinated by a lot of eras in history.  This series is set in late Regency London, and what I love is digging underneath the silks and satins.  There was an entire world beyond the ballrooms, one that could be ugly, dangerous, and made for some desperate choices.  I think, in any era, I enjoy digging underneath the surface. 

2.    What one thing can readers expect from your books?
One reviewer that said my books were perfect for someone who loves a good mystery in their historical romance.  Another reader said that for a historical romance, in which you know a happy ending is a must, she actually started questioning how—or if—it would happen. I loved that! My two favorite genres to read are historical romance and romantic suspense —I mush those together and hopefully, what comes out is a suspenseful, romantic story that will keep the reader guessing.
