This time, I went through three series title changes before we were happy with what would be stamped on the books. At first I called it the Pleasure Seekers, because that was exactly what my men seemed to be about, wanting the latest pleasure, enjoying life to the fullest and doing as they please and not what society deems appropriate.
That title told you nothing so we changed it to (some might recall) The Mayfair Chronicles. It's a bit of an odd name as it tells you nothing about the characters and only a place, but it is a direct reflection of what is offered in the stories. You see, there is this rag published about London in my books called The Mayfair Chronicles and it details all the latest on dit and speculates on members of the haute ton for all to read. The best part is: No one knows who the Chronicler is! Let me share a small opening (which appears at the beginning of each chapter in all three books).
Death causes the oddest affectations in the upper echelons of society. The Countess of F— certainly took the death of her husband to loftier heights of aberration in her latest display, and in Kensal Green of all places. Her exhibition was wholly . . . distasteful, and left much to be desired by all who were present.
Why the infamous Countess of F— should be immune to censure from society has always baffled this writer. Though judging on the glances received by others in true mourning, she’ll not likely be allowed to carry on her usual dramas in widowhood.
The Mayfair Chronicles, May 26, 1846
In the next month or so I should be able to share the back cover blurb with you, however, I will give you this (with my new series title, which I'm very excited about)...
In the captivating first installment of the Dangerous Rogues Series, past passion reignites when a seductive earl comes face to face with the woman he loved years ago, but rekindling those feelings could be the means to his ruin . . .
What do you think of series titles? Do you love series? Do you like to identify with a series title so you can connect the books?
