about the author~
Laurel McKee is the pen name for regency romance writer Amanda McCabe.
Amanda wrote her first romance at the age of sixteen--a vast historical epic starring all her friends as the characters, written secretly during algebra class (and her parents wondered why math was not her strongest subject...)
She's never since used algebra, but her books have been nominated for many awards, including the RITA Award, the Romantic Times BOOKReviews Reviewers' Choice Award, the Booksellers Best, the National Readers Choice Award, and the Holt Medallion. She lives in Oklahoma with a menagerie of two cats, a Pug, and a very bossy miniature Poodle, along with far too many books.
When not writing or reading, she loves taking dance classes, collecting cheesy travel souvenirs, and watching the Food Network--even though she doesn't cook.

The first book in a trilogy (Yay!!!) Countess of Scandal is a story that centers around a heroine who is strong and steadfast in her beliefs. She is loyal to Ireland, as she thinks of herself as Irish since she was born there. The hero is torn between the woman he loves and his loyalty to his country. They loved each other when they were younger, but when Will joined the British Army, Eliza turned her back on him. He comes back into her life 7 years later and there are 'fireworks'!! This story is one that I will be rereading in the future! The next story is Anna's - Duchess of Sin, scheduled for release in December, 2010.
