Devil in My Bed - The Runaway Brides - Book 1 - Cover



I love this trilogy–and I love poor mixed up Madeleine especially! There’s something about someone who lies in a good cause–and then gets stuck with those lies!


Runaway Brides Bk 1

Three Lords and a Baby…

When Aidan de Quincy finds a precocious tot on the steps of his gentleman’s club, he is sure he isn’t the child’s father…well, nearly sure. In order to find out, he needs to find the only woman he ever loved–the one who broke his heart!
Madeleine Chandler has a secret, but not the one
Aidan thinks she does. Her past is about to catch
up to her again and only Aidan can save her. All
she has to do is tell one more tiny little lie…

accent Quotes:

“From its unconventional prologue to its superb
conclusion, every page of the first in Bradley’s
Runaway Brides series is perfection and joy. Tinged
with humor that never overshadows the poignancy
and peopled with remarkable characters
(especially the precocious Melody) who will
steal your heart, this one’s a keeper.”
–Romantic Times BOOKreviews

accent Under the covers:

I wrote this book while pondering the meaning
of fatherhood. What makes a father? Is it instinct?
Having a good example to follow? Reading the
parenting books that have been strategically left
by the toilet with relevant passages highlighted
in yellow? Aidan is a man who is locked down tight–
until a child manages to pick that lock with a smile.

accent Portraits of our lovers:


Aidan de Quincy, Earl of Blankenship, has only loved one woman in his life. Madeleine loved him beyond
his wildest dreams, then coldly refused him and shredded his heart into tiny little pieces. If little
foundling Melody is his daughter, then only Madeleine can be her mother. That’s a little trip in the way-back machine that Aidan really doesn’t want to take.
Bringing Madeleine to live with him and Melody sounds like yet another journey into heartbreak…
but he can’t resist her, even knowing that she’ll
only destroy him yet again. Oh, but what a way to go.


Miss Madeleine Chandler has been living a lie for so long she is beginning to believe it…until the day the past comes back to bite her in her lovely arse. The only thing to do is flee and the only place to flee is back into the arms of Aidan, the man whose heart she was forced to break years before. Unfortunately, the only way to get herself back into those arms is to lie yet again. Is she the mother of the child so recently left on his doorstep? Um, sure, yeah, whatever. But just when Maddie’s heart begins to remember why she loved Aidan so desperately in the first place, the brittle, shaky pyramid of her lies begins to sway beneath her feet!
