Jen Turano's adult Inspirational Historical Romance novel, A Change of Fortune (ISBN 978-0-7642-1018-1, softcover, 320 pages), will be released by Bethany House on November 1, 2012. The book will be available at Barnes & Noble, Tattered Cover, Amazon, the Walmart website and most other book sellers. The author's website is at www.JenTurano.com or find her on Facebook here.

Lady Eliza Sumner is on a mission. Her fortune was the last thing she had left after losing her father, her fiance, and her faith. Now, masquerading as Miss Eliza Sumner, governess-at-large, she's determined to find the man who ran off with her fortune, reclaim the money, and head straight back to London. She simply never counted on making the acquaintance of Mr. Hamilton Beckett, the catch of the season, and that meeting causes her best-laid-plans to fall by the wayside.

Jen Turano writes historical romances filled with quirky characters paired with a large dollop of humor. She believes heroines should be sassy, heroes should be slightly flawed, and every ending should be happily-ever-after. When she's not writing, she spends her time with her husband, Al, her teenage son, Dominic, and her fabulous group of friends.

The companion novella, Gentleman of Her Dreams (A Ladies of Distinction Novella), published by Bethany House on September 1, 2012, is also free on Amazon in Kindle format here.

When Miss Charlotte Wilson asks God for a husband, she decides He must want her to pursue Mr. Hamilton Beckett, the catch of the season. The only problem? She's never actually met Hamilton. Fortunately, one of her oldest and dearest friends, Mr. Henry St. James--who has returned to New York after a two-year absence--does know Hamilton. Much to Henry's chagrin, Charlotte immediately ropes him into helping her meet Hamilton. However, none of her plans to catch Hamilton's eye go as she expected, and she is even more confused when her old feelings for Henry begin to resurrect themselves. In the midst of the mayhem Charlotte always seems to cause, she wonders if the gentleman of her dreams might be an entirely different man than she thought.This novella is a companion to A Change of Fortune, Jen Turano's full-length debut novel, available fall 2012!
