Heather Snow is a historical romance writer with a degree in Chemistry who found she much preferred creating chemistry on the page, rather than in the lab! She is forever trying to wrangle her left and right brain to work together (some days with more success than others!), but if her two sides had to duke it out, left would win every time--which can be a creative challenge. Luckily, she loves challenges...she just goes about solving them analytically.
She lives with her husband and two sons in the Midwest and truly hopes you find her stories have just the right chemistry...
Written by Liliana Wentworth, née Claremont, Countess of Stratford, to her husband—upon the birth of their daughter, some seven and one half months after the Epilogue…
The Love Letter:
I find myself overcome with emotion as I sit here in the stillness of the night… I’ve just finished nursing our precious daughter and she is now tucked back snug in her cradle. Aunt will likely have plenty to say over the unusual nature of me choosing to suckle our baby myself, but when have I ever been conventional? How fortunate I am to have you in my life, who encourages me to be only who I am.
As I watch you sleep, the firelight glinting off of your ebony hair like flashes of lightning in a pitch black sky, my chest aches with love for you. As a scientist, I understand that there is some physiological reaction in a woman’s body after she gives birth that makes her feel overwhelming love, as well as a deep sense of contentment. I suspect it is so that she bonds with her newborn. Perhaps, one day, we may even discover what causes such phenomena. But I also know that whatever this rare wonder is, it is not the reason I am moved nearly to tears as I look upon you.
While there are many, many reasons I love you, my darling, tonight I am most grateful for one—that our daughter will have a father who will respect her. One who will encourage and support her in anything she chooses to do with her life. One who will not expect her to conform to society’s idea of what a female should be. One who will appreciate whatever gifts she possesses, and who will guide her to use those gifts for the greater good. One who will be her launching pad, as my father was for me when he was alive…and as you are for me now.
I miss my father, tonight. I regret that our daughter will never know him. But I know that he would be proud that I’ve chosen so well in a husband—a man who treasures his daughter as he did. A man who deserves my love.
And you have it, always…

A Veiled Seduction Novel ~Book One
"Historical intrigue and heart-pounding passion make Sweet Enemy a great read. Romance fans will love it." -#1 NYT Bestselling Author JULIE GARWOOD
Geoffrey Wentworth, a war hero and rising political star, never wanted to be the Earl, but when his brother dies, he knows his duty—take up the responsibility for his family’s estates. His mother’s definition of duty differs from his, however, and can be summed up in one word—heirs. When Geoffrey rushes home to answer her urgent summons, he finds himself host to a house full of women, all vying to become the next Countess of Stratford. But his love is Parliament, where he wields his influence and reputation to better the lives of ex-soldiers, until a tempting houseguest and a secret from his past threaten his freedom…and his heart.
Liliana Claremont, a brilliant chemist, doesn’t want to be any man’s wife, much less a Countess. If she had tuppence for every time she’d been told her place was filling the nursery, not experimenting in the laboratory, she could buy the Tower Bridge. However, when she receives a coveted invitation to the Earl’s house party, she trades in her beakers for ball gowns and gladly takes on the guise of husband hunter—for the chance to uncover what the Earl had to do with the murder of her father.
