A Rogue's Deadly Redemption by Jeannie Ruesch – Cover Reveal + Giveaway


A Rogue’s Deadly Redemption by Jeannie Ruesch
Scandal forced Lady Lily Melrose into an untenable decision: marry the man she wanted but who wanted someone else or leave her home for America. She gambled and stayed. Now, almost four years later, Lily is ready to gamble again—on a future that means leaving her neglectful, absent husband behind. But when a deadly adversary threatens them both, Lily realizes how little she understood about her husband—and her marriage. She’s faced with another impossible choice: leave the man she loved to face certain death or stay and fight to help him deliver on a promise he no longer remembers.

Robert Melrose was raised as the forgotten third-born son with no future—without even the label of black sheep to keep him respectable. Not content with obscurity, he cultivated his own path to power, aligning himself with London’s underworld, where betrayal is deadly. But when an accident wipes away his past, Robert can’t remember who he is or what he’s done. What he does know is that his wife, Lily, evokes a strong need inside—a need to prove he’s better than his past. But when his past becomes a present danger, Robert must choose: gain the trust and love of the woman intent on leaving or let her walk away from him and the danger that might cost both their lives.

About the Author

AuthorPicJeannie 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. That journey to destiny took 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 always captivated her. 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 husband, their son and an 80 pound lapdog lab named Cooper. She can be visited at www.jeannieruesch.com or found regularly on Twitter or Facebook.

    1. Hi Darlene — Yep, age six. It was about a babysitter on Halloween night. (Even then, I was into suspense…who knew? Lol)

      But I remember, to this day, the minute I wrote “The End” to that story. I felt so happy, it was something that stayed with me and I knew that I wanted to feel that way again, and often.

  2. The cover is very appealing and suspenseful looking. I like the sounds of this book. I’m looking forward to seeing if Robert and lily get their HEA 🙂

    1. Kathy,

      Thanks so much for letting me know. For some reason my account jumped past 100% full, I have no idea why. I’m working on it now.

  3. Love the cover on your second historical romantic suspense, Jeannie…it’s so dreamy! Of course, I think Regency era clothing is pretty dreamy most of the time. 🙂

  4. HA HA HA Jeannie! Me and my girlfriends had the same exact conversation about how to hide a dead body one night! Too funny! Makes me wonder if I have a dark side also, and how many other people do too!

  5. I love romances with some intrigue thrown in! Thanks for the giveaway, I also love the dress on the cover! Great pick!
