Thank you all for voting for The Duchess War and The Governess Affair. You guys seriously rocked it out, and while Tammara Webber’s Easy won the day, you definitely didn’t lose. I’m pretty happy to have done as well as I did against Easy, which was a pretty damned amazing book. (If you haven’t read it, consider it!)

I know that I had promised you a deleted scene from The Duchess War if we advanced–but I never said you couldn’t have it if we didn’t.

And so with that caveat–and with many, many thanks for all your help–here it is.


Courtney Milan writes historical romances, which might lead people to think that she could be cool. In reality, she's about four different kinds of geeky. At present, this blog is where Courtney applies semi-dormant geek skills to publishing.

  1. I’m sad you didn’t win but I hope it convinced some readers to try out your books! Thank you for the deleted scene. I enjoyed it.

  2. I took it so personally when you didn’t make it through on both counts! The world was ending kind of drama. It was fun, thanks for the scene. Super duper excited for the next book in the series.

  3. Thank you both so much! It was so hugely dramatic (and exhausting), but the good news is that now I can really concentrate on finishing the first draft of this book.

  4. Thank you for that delightful deleted scene! I voted for tGA even though Easy is one of my favourite books. This is because I love tGA, tDW and a Kiss for Midwinter more in totality and am looking forward to the other books in the series. For me, stories like yours often make the difference between a good day and a blah one. So from the bottom of my heart, I thank you.
