Blurb for A Lady of Quality by Louise Gouge:

Catherine Du Coeur is determined to uncover the truth about wealthy Lord Winston, who falsely accused her father of treason. But the closer she gets to the handsome young nobleman, the more she wonders how such a benevolent gentleman could have conspired to commit such evil. Baron Lord Winston has had little success in finding an accomplished aristocratic bride who is suited to his diplomatic aspirations. But when he meets Miss Du Coeur, a countess’s lowly companion, he finds that family connections are far less important than matters of the heart.

Patch1Kate Lloyd’s Bio:

A native of Baltimore, MD, she and her husband live in Seattle, the setting for Kate’s first novel, A Portrait of Marguerite.

Blurb for Pennsylvania Patchwork by Kate Lloyd:

Seattle native Holly Fisher is smitten by Lancaster County, its simplicity and her long lost Amish relatives. In the sequel to bestselling Leaving Lancaster, Holly embraces the Amish culture and discovers who and what really matters.

Meeting the family her mother has hidden from her, Holly comes face to face with her real life and blood legacy. When Zach, a handsome Mennonite veterinarian, proposes marriage, Holly’s mother and Amish grandmother are dead set against it. But Holly is infatuated with Zach. Until she meets an attractive Amish man who confirms Zach’s dubious past. And an old suitor shows up.

Pennsylvania Patchwork is the moving, richly told story of one woman’s heart, her faith, and trust, and the choices she makes.
