She’s been very busy lately–she’s got a new release AND she’s been handcrafting all types of jewelry and bookmarks. Best of all, you can win one of her pieces! (Details and link are at the bottom of the post)


First, check out her latest release, The King of Threadneedle Street.

Threadneedle street book coverHe owns three shipping companies, a diamond mine, and his own castle.

He knows Portuguese, Hindi, Mandarin and Morse code.

His assets net thirteen million.

Everyone thinks Andrew Tilmore, Lord Preston, the financial prodigy dubbed “The King of Threadneedle Street,” has it all, but he wants the one prize money can’t buy: his childhood sweetheart.

Alysia Villier can’t say if it’s worse having Andrew’s father in control of her inheritance or Andrew in control of her heart. He’s ruined her for any other man, but she simply can’t give in to him. She knows he’s destined for great things — marrying a courtesan’s daughter would jeopardize everything he stands for.

Keeping Alysia out of trouble and away from eager suitors becomes a cross-continental quest for Andrew, and he won’t be stopped by his old-fashioned family or the disapproval of the ton. After all, he’s a man with the power to play newspapers and investors like pawns, tumble world markets and incite riots… but can he win the biggest gamble of his life?


Moriah has figured out a way to combine writing, and jewelry making. Jewelry making is a hobby she’s enjoyed for years. When writing the scene in The King of Threadneedle Street where Andrew gives Alysia a rare lavender pearl jewelry set, she went wild with her imagination. She created Victorian-style pearl, onyx, and crystal jewelry for the release-day giveaway; here’s where the inspiration came from:

Before Alysia dressed for dinner, Marsden delivered a small white case and left without a word. She unfolded the note to see Andrew’s capricious scrawl. He wrote, Please wear these for me tonight. She unwrapped the chocolate truffles and nibbled on one as she opened the lid of the box.

She gasped — an elaborate jewelry set glowed in the lamplight. Breathtaking pearls, a smoky lavender color and set in designs she had never seen the like of. The necklace was not merely a strand, but an arrangement that resembled an elaborate tiara, or half of a snowflake. Woven into delicate patterns with graduated-sized pearls, it looked like some priceless artifact discovered in an ancient tomb.

Alysia dropped her dressing robe to hold the necklace against her collar. She fastened the clasp and tried on the matching earrings and bracelet. Exquisite. And that he’d picked the color to complement her eyes? Romantic. She looked in the mirror to see the luster of the pearls reflecting the lavender facets of her eyes, making them paradoxically smoky and bright.

Andrew knew what he was doing.

  1. Christi … what a thrill to meet Moriah and read about her amazing books. Each time you have a new guest, my TBR pile gets higher 🙂
    Welcome, Moriah … however to you it all ?? and with two brain damaged cats to boot 🙂

    • Florence,

      Moriah and I both have twins so we enjoy trading stories about all the fun things they do. She’s got FOUR kids, and still gets all those books written and jewelry made. Amazing!

      Thanks for visiting.


    • Hi, Florence! I know you – I stalk your blog 🙂 Thanks for taking the time to comment. Don’t be too impressed – I don’t do it all very well, and last night’s takeout cartons still on the (dirty) kitchen table attest to that… And the brain-damaged cats are the entertainment. Christi has a giant dog for that. The twins provide the mayhem.

  2. Thanks for hosting me today, Christi. I always have a lovely time on your blog. Any twin tomfoolery today? My daughter said this morning while I was doing her hair, “When I grow up, I’m going to be like you.” And I said, “Well, thanks, but what do you mean?” and she said, “Dragon Lady.”

    • Moriah,

      Dragon Lady! Love that one!

      We’re in the midst of a cold snap here in Oregon, so we busted out the scarves for the twins today. As I was winding my son’s scarf around his face he was whining about not being able to breathe and I told him “Don’t worry about it.” as I kept winding.

      Now I feel like the mom in A Christmas Story when she’s getting the little boy ready in the snowsuit and he’s complaining that he can’t put his arms down and she just keeps winding the scarf and sends him out the door 😀

  4. I am just stopping by to say Hi to you Christi and Moriah! The moment I started reading Moriah’s first book, I fell in love with her characters and style of writing. I have read all three novels in her Rougemont series, and I’m getting excited to read her next one.
