Happy Monday, friends! I can’t think of a better way to start the week than to share the lovely cover of Cat Gardiner’s long-expected release of In Good Conscience!!! If you are new to this series, it is an exhilarating adventure and epic romance where a modern-day Darcy is an ex-SEAL assassin contracted by the CIA who meets a vulnerable and manipulated Lizzy Bennet while out on a mission and they embark on a dangerous and thrilling journey from there!  It has been wonderful to see Iceman’s and Lakmé’s adventures continue after the first book – Denial of Conscience , I cannot wait to see what is in store in this latest adventure!!

~ From the Author ~

Hi, everyone! I’m so honored and excited to visit with Meredith and her Austenesque Reviews community of friends and avid readers. Thank you all for stopping by for the In Good Conscience cover reveal. I hope to kick off a little excitement for the book release that will be a white-knuckle summer read.


Of all the covers in The Conscience Series, I adore this last one the most, and I hope you like it as well! While I never intended to write one, let alone two and a half, sequels to Denial of Conscience, it’s been an incredible ride with one of the hottest men I’ve written: Iceman. It turned out that so many readers adored this particular contemporary, alpha-male Fitzwilliam Darcy. Harley Davidson biker, former SEAL, idealistic (yet tormented) government-sanctioned assassin, and the great protector of Elizabeth had them asking for more and thank you for that!!!! He may give her wings to fly (on the back of her own Harley) but he is always the protector. And she is always his number one focus.

So here we are, book three in The Conscience Series: In Good Conscience, The Final Adventure, set to release shortly. It will be a full novel of 100k+ words and available in Nook and Kindle e-books, 6×8 paperback, and eventually offered in a Kobo e-book bundle titled: Conscience Rising for readers new to the series who wish to binge read on all 3 ½ books!

Thank you again Meredith for hosting the cover reveal! Now, let’s get on and ride! Vroom-vroom.

~ Book Description ~

Romance     Vengeance     Heartbreak    Suspense     Adventure

No man has loved a woman as much as Fitzwilliam “Iceman” Darcy loves his wife Elizabeth. His love is indestructible, insatiable, and his Achilles’ heel.

Since the whirlwind and dangerous adventure in Paris and Moscow in Without a Conscience, life at Pemberley has been a combination of idyllic repose and focused preparation and defense. Darcy’s enemy is still out there—a hair’s breadth from delivering revenge for his father’s assassination.

When the enemy strikes first, Iceman’s world comes crashing down kick starting a firestorm. How far will the gelid warrior go to protect all his loved ones? Just how much is the former Navy SEAL willing to sacrifice? Is his attritional warfare blind rage?—or are his extreme actions in good conscience?

This emotional, wild ride will take you on a breathless, white-knuckle international journey from heartbreak and revenge to survival and enduring bliss because …

No woman has loved a man like Elizabeth Darcy loves her husband Fitzwilliam. Her love is invulnerable, unyielding, and her strength.

“He who has felt the deepest grief is best able to experience supreme happiness.”

— Alexandre Dumas, The Count of Monte Cristo

Ah! I must interject here just to say how amazing this sounds, Cat! Oh! It sure promises to be everything that is intense, adventurous, dangerous, and passion-fueled!!

And without further ado….here is the big reveal!!!

(expected release date: late summer)

First of all, I love that all these covers have running motifs and similarities to each other!

This couple is gorgeous and I like how each pose of them is different yet “Ice Man” always looks reserved and fierce!

I love that her eyes are closed and the physical contact between them, you can tell she is at peace and feeling safe when she is with him.

Loved the city scapes at the bottom of each cover…will have to figure out what this one is? 😉

What do you think, friends?

    OMG…I have chills running up and down my body!!! I LOVE this series and this portrayal of my favorite couple. I am so going to grab this book when it is released. Absolutely adore the covers and have to say that the final one is my favorite. Good luck with this release, Cat. Thanks for sharing here, Meredith.


    Oh a box set! I adore a good series – and a series with ODC is even better. The trailer is brilliant – I want to see the movie! And the covers are delightful – I agree with Meredith – the continuity of the couple is perfect.


      Thank you for your generous comment, Lynley. This is the first box set I’ve compiled, so I’m really excited about it and glad to hear that there are readers out their who are interested in an all-at-once movie-like (tee hee I wish!) fix. Enjoy your summer!


      The collection looks so wonderful together, doesn’t it?

      And yes! A movie would be so great for this series!


    Iceman is back!!! 😀 That is wonderful, Cat, I can’t wait to read this new book! I think I will start my rereading of the first two ones now just so I don’t forget any details! The Conscience Series is very dear to me and I loved the good times we had “taking pictures” with him around the world, the games in the book club, etc. I am sure this one will be just as fun and exhilarating! The cover in beautiful and it has Venice in it with the Rialto Brigde! It couldn’t get any better! Congratulations on your new book!


      Hi, Daniela!! OMG! We had so much fun with “Flat Stanley” Darcy on the back of his Harley! I need to find your brilliant photo with you on the back and post it on the FB page. I haven’t discussed with Pamela yet, but I’d like to do a book club discussion for IGC. So, keep your eyes on the VPP FB page for an announcement. And you are right – that is Venice! Thank you so much for your excitement and wishes. Good luck in the giveaway. xoxoxo


    Grab your helmet and hang on! This looks to be one thrilling and dangerously steamy sexy ride!!! I agree Meredith, I like how Elizabeth is touching him and Iceman’s look says it all…’Don’t mess with me and mine!’ Fabulous cover for the final book and I’m going to say Venice, Italy?

    Congratulations Cat and can’t wait to read it! Thank you for the generous giveaway too. Thank you for hosting this great cover reveal Meredith!!


      Vroom vroom! My helmet is on and I’m ready to ride. Glad to hear you are, too, Carole. There is a definite intimate connection on the cover, but more than meets the eye 😉 Oh and he is for sure saying “Don’t mess with mine.” Venice it is! Thank you so much, hon and good luck <3


      So true, Carole! He is a fierce protector! Thanks for sharing your thoughts, Carole! Best of luck in the giveaway!


    Is he going to be able to ride a motorcycle around Venice?! Looking forward to enjoying this book. I’ve been waiting for quite a while for it to come out. I gotta have it!


      Will there be a blog tour? If so, can you tell us where you will be?


        Hi Ginna! Lovely to see you here and thank you for the comment. I know how you’ve been waiting patiently to dig in to all three books. There will be a blog tour, although the details have not been worked out yet. The publication date is not nailed down as it is still in the editing phase, but it won’t be long now. 🙂 Best of luck in the giveaway.


    Wow!! The trailer is thrilling. Can’t wait to go on another adventure with ODC. Congratulations on the release of your final book in this series. Thank you for the giveaway.


      Hi, Mary! Thank you so much. I had a ton of fun making the trailer. I hope it sets the tone for what’s ahead. 😉 Good luck in the giveaway and thank you for commenting!


    I really don’t know what’s happening but I keep commenting and they don’t post. I will try again. I love LOVE this cover. Iceman and Liz love each other and hopefully can save the other from danger. I trust you Cat to look after them 🙂
    I will have to ‘re read the others before reading this one.. thanks to both of you for sharing


      Iceman says, “Get on and ride, Glynis!” Ha! Maybe he’s willing to dump his leading lady for his #1 fan! Just kidding. 🙂 All I can say with a mischievous grin is “Trust the author.” Good luck, hon on the giveaway and thank you for all your excitement! <3 <3


      So sorry to hear you had trouble commenting, Glynis! I’m glad it finally worked for you! If you have any troubles again, let me know!


    Wow! I love the cover Cat! That is such a fantastic cover! It is a perfect fit with the other two books. I can’t wait to read this. Double WOW on the trailer! It gave me goosebumps! Awesome!


      Hi, Janet! You’re a sweetie, such a huge compliment coming from the JAFF cover girl herself! Thank you so much. I’m so glad the trailer has gotten you in the mood for Darcy’s dangerous Black Ice Operation. Hugs for good luck on the giveaway. xoxoxo


    OMG!! That cover is amazing… I agree that she looks at peace… but his eye has that ‘don’t even think about it’ look. Oh, I love this. I loved all the books and have read all of them. I look forward to reading this next installment. Thank you for hosting Meredith and Cat… what can I say. This is the best Darcy EVER… I loved ‘iceman’ and his Elizabeth. Man… this cover is amazing and I agree… the best of the series. Meredith… say hello to Mr. Bingley for me.


      Hi J.W! Thank you so much for your generous comment. I’m so happy that you love this Darcy (and cover) so much! I’m quite taken with him, too. 😉 Thankfully, there’s enough of him to go around but I think we’ll have to fight Liz for him. (tee hee) Good luck in the giveaway. vroom-vroom!


      He definitely would be on my short list, Jeanne! I’m so glad to hear you love this series as much as I do!


    I love how the covers are all connected to one another. Congrats on the release!


    Wow! I never saw a trailer for a book before! But the book series could be made into a movie! What a dream! Excellent covers, all, and excellently written books, Cat! I remember I was really taken with the first one in the series, and in subsequent ones, the thrills never let up! Thank you for the giveaway!


      Hi, Denise! Thank you so much for your excitement and the sweet compliments. I’m so flattered! I would love to see the series in a movie – could you just imagine it? LOL It’s every author’s dream. 🙂 Good luck on the giveaway! xo


    This series is captivating and beautiful. What gorgeous covers. The beautiful setting and the models makes this book come alive for me. Congratulations Cat!


    I have been eagerly anticipating the release of this final book in this series! I love all of Cat’s books. I used to only read Regency JAFF but that changed after I discovered Cat Gardiner. She is such a talented writer. I love the cover and cannot wait to read this one! Congrats Cat!!


      You are a sweetheart!! Thank you, Sara for the incredible compliments and support. It really makes my heart soar when I hear how much a reader enjoys my work. Your enthusiasm keeps me going with a song in my heart. I hope you enjoy IGC as much as you have the others! 🙂 Hugs and best wishes in the giveaway <3 <3


    loved the book trailer–sounds exciting!



    WOW! The trailer and book cover are AMAZING! Cannot wait to read this! One of my favorite series. LOVE LOVE LOVE ICE MAN! And Cat Gardiner is the reason I included Modern JAFF instead of Regency. She’s amazing.


    Oh — so much to love! The cover, the trailer, the box set, the return of iceman — my heart is all aflutter!


    I don’t know how I’ve missed this series but it sounds really good! I look forward to binge reading all three!


    Dearest Meredith, thank you so much for your warm hospitality and unbridled enthusiasm for not just The Conscience Series but for all my work these few years! You are all that is gracious and kind. It is a real treat to visit with you and our shared (and new) friends here at AR. It is a special place – as you are a special lady and blog hostess. <3 xoxoxo to you and Mr. Bingley.


      It is such a sincere pleasure Cat to read your stories! They bring me such immense pleasure and I know I am far from being the only person who feels this way!! I am just so thankful that you continue to write and to continue to share all these creative, adventurous, and thrilling stories with us! I am very honored to share this post and it has been such a treat for me to read everyone’s comments and see the love they have for Ice Man and Lizzy!


    AHHH! I can’t wait to read this! LOVED the first two books and am already planning to re-read in anticipation of the third. The cover is gorgeous!


      Thank you so much, Laura! I’m so happy that you enjoyed the first two. I hope IGC is a satisfying finale to the wild ride. I think ODC needs some normalcy after this one. 🙂 Hugs for good luck.


    I’ve read the previous books in the series, and am so excited about this final book!!! Really hoping to win a copy!!!! Loved the trailer!! Thanks, Cat and Meredith!!!!!

    Susanne 🙂


      Hi Susanne! Thank you for your support and excitement! I’m glad the trailer has you hooked for ride #3. Hugs and girly kisses for good luck in the giveaway. Vroom vroom!


    Woohoo! Things are heating up for the big finale and that cover has me salivating.


    I can’t wait for this book! I love Cat’s books, and this series is one of my favorites. Love the cover!


    These books are amazing!


    Oh Cat! Love love the cover! So excited for your release. I have thoroughly enjoyed the adventure and can’t wait for the final ride. Congratulations!!


    Gotta love Iceman and his Elizabeth! Got all the rest and have to have this one too!


    Wow! Even though I’ve checked into Vanity and Pride I didn’t realize your new release was just around the corner. Very exciting! Congratulations Cat on finishing the trilogy! Looking forward to reading this one. Jen


    The premise of Darcy as a Navy Seal, very interesting indeed!


      Hi Dena. Lovely to meet you. Our Darcy comes with a tortured past. He’s several years out, but in this book we will hear a little more about his SEAL days. Thank you for commenting and good luck!


    AHHHH!!! So excited to read it! Love the cover. can’t wait to read about the Iceman and his love’s new adventure.


    Fabulous cover, Cat. Did you design each of the book covers for theConscience yourself? I like all of them and agree with Meredith’s observations that there is a running motif and the use of same models in different poses. I look forward to the official release and hope you’ve plan a great party to celebrate the book release.


      Thank you so much for commenting, Luthien! A professional designer (who has done most of my covers) did the three novels. The novelette, Guilty Conscience, I designed myself (as best I could to match her skill.) It being only six vignettes and priced at and only .99, I needed to save my $ for the next full-length novel

      I hope to have a grand party on the Vanity & Pride Press FB group page and visit several blogs to kick off the final adventure. Thank you, again and good luck in the giveaway! xoxo


        Wow, I didn’t know that you designed Guilty Conscience because it really matches with the other book covers in the series down to the same font. The only noticeable difference I notice is there is no buildings/location at the bottom of the cover in the novelette which I put it as you wanting to differentiate this from the full-length novels.

        I’m happy to hear that there will be a celebration on VPP FB group page, Cat.


    Can’t wait to read. Do you think you will put Guilty Conscience in paperback form? There are times I actually like holding a book and reading verses my IPad. Thanks!


      Hi, Cheryl! 🙂 Thank you for the comment. I hope you enjoy this last adventure with ODC. For a short while, I did have Guilty Conscience in 5×8 paperback exclusively offered through Vanity & Pride Press, but I’m out of stock now. I will order some before the launch of IGC. Check back at our site from time to time or sign up for the seasonal newsletter for notification. I’m so flattered by your interest! vanityandpridepress.com
      Good luck in the giveaway!


    Love this series and your other books. So looking forward to this one.


    Love the cover and trailer! So excited, can’t wait to read it! I can just picture a movie or miniseries coming out of it!


    These books are all new te me. I’d love to take them with me on my holiday


    Vroom, vroom, Cat! I am already finding Harleys everywhere. I can’t wait for another hot tango with Iceman.


      Hello lovee!! You will get your tango in IGC but you may have to wait for it 🙂 Oh, but what a ride you’ll have getting to the dance floor. *kiss kiss* Thank you <3 <3


    Looking forward to the boxed set. I love how the covers to so well together. The trailer grabs the attention of anyone watching them. I am looking forward to reading the culmination of the series.


      Thank you, Debbie! I’m really excited for the box set, too and working on the cover as we speak! <3 The video was tons of fun to make. I actually created two. This one is from Darcy's pov. The other is from Liz's but I'm holding that back because it's a little spoilerish so I might make adjustments. 🙂 Hugs for giveaway luck!


    can’t wait to read the conclusion of your series. just for my own pleasure, i’ll read the previous ones to get back into it !


    I have so loved this series and can hardly wait for this final release!As always the cover is beautiful and the trailer is enticing. Congratulations, Cat!


      Thank you, Regina!! I’m so happy to hear how much you’ve loved The Conscience Series. Thanks for the kind words about the cover and trailer. I’m excited about both, too. Hugs and good luck in the giveaway! <3


    Love the cover, and can’t wait to read this last book in the series. I’ll be rereading the first books to get back into the groove.


    Heartbreak, the enemy strikes first, Iceman’s world comes crashing down. You are scaring me!!!! Can’t wait!


    This is one of my all time favorite Darcy and Liz stories. I am RE-reading the previous books in anticipation of this release. Is there any firm release date?!?
