Booklist writes, “Ives’ latest endlessly engaging Victorian-set historical is a droll delight, and the witty banter Ives devises for her heroine and hero perfectly complements the abundance of sexy chemistry this made-for-each-other couple shares.” Publishers Weekly writes, “This is a jolly good read with plenty of conflict and banter.”

I’ve posted the first chapter for your reading pleasure. You can pre-order at Amazon,  Barnes and Noble,  iTunes,  Books A Million,  The Book Depository, or  Indigo

Grace Burrowes, Emily Greenwood, and I are putting our heads together to write a companion to Dukes in Disguise. You guessed it: Duchesses in Disguise! I’ll let you know more specifics as they become available.

Rakes and Radishes seems to be hovering around $.99. It’s Gothic-y fun.  If you haven’t read it, give it a shot.

I would love to hear from you. Please send me a line at or follow me on:

Dukes In Disguise

Grace Burrowes, Emily Greenwood, and Susanna Ives team up to bring you three Regency novellas, each featuring a young, wealthy duke who must spend two weeks masquerading as a commoner in the bucolic backwater of Lesser Puddlebury. Disaster will rain down if their graces' titled status become public knowledge. Fortunately for our heroes, true love is no respecter of rank.

Read an excerpt from my "Duchess of Light" novella in the anthology.

Wicked, My Love - Wicked Little Secrets series book II

A smooth-talking rogue and a dowdy financial genius make a perfectly wicked combination

Handsome, silver-tongued politician Lord Randall doesn't get along with his bank partner, the financially brilliant but hopelessly frumpish Isabella St. Vincent. Ever since she was his childhood nemesis, he's tried-and failed-to get the better of her. When both Randall's political career and their mutual bank interests are threatened by scandal, he has to admit he needs Isabella's help. They set off on a madcap scheme to set matters right. With her wits and his charm, what could possibly go wrong? Only a volatile mutual attraction that's catching them completely off guard...

"Ives' sprightly repartee adds to the merriment, yet the poignancy that lies beneath will touch readers' hearts. Ives delivers on every level."--RT Book Reviews, 4 1/2 Stars, Top Pick! - 2015 RT's Reviewers' Choice Awards Nominees - Historical Love & Laughter Category
