Guest Blogger Teri Wilson - Pocketful of Possibility

One of my most cherished gifts this Christmas was probably the least expected. Certainly the most unusual. My friend Renee gave me a tiny pink coin purse from Harrods, filled with pocket change in British currency. Not an enormous sum—in fact, it probably totaled no more than a few dollars.

Yet the sight of those modest coins tumbling around in that coin purse put an enormous smile on my face. It wasn’t so much the monetary value of the collection of coins as what they represented. Adventure. I have no specific plans to travel to London in the near future, but I know I will go back. And Renee’s gift is her belief in that dream.

London is special to me. It is by far my favorite city in the world. It is also the setting of my book being released today, Unleashing Mr. Darcy. Yes…that Mr. Darcy. The rumors of his death have been greatly exaggerated. The Bridget Jones franchise may have killed him off, but he is very much alive on my pages. And he’s a dog show judge! Take a peek…

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single woman teetering on the verge of thirty must be in want of a husband.

Not true for Manhattanite Elizabeth Scott. Instead of planning a walk down the aisle, she's crossing the pond with the only companion she needs—her darling dog, Bliss. Caring for a pack of show dogs in England seems the perfect distraction from the scandal that ruined her teaching career, and her reputation, in New York. What she doesn't count on is an unstoppable attraction to billionaire dog breeder Donovan Darcy. The London tycoon's a little bit arrogant, a whole lot sexy…and the chemistry between them is disarming. When passion is finally unleashed, might Elizabeth hope to take home more than a blue ribbon?

Unleashing Mr. Darcy releases today from Harlequin HQN. Read an excerpt here: http://teriwilson.net/darcy-excerpt.html
