Work-In-Progress Wednesday!

Wednesday, August 10, 2011

Hope you enjoy this week's work-in-progress snippet.  Check out the blurb for this manuscript at the bottom of the post.  Thanks!
The next morning when the diabolical rooster ripped Rupert from the comfort of sleep and favored him with his fourth morning seranade, he wondered if roosters were good to eat and threw his boot at him.  Sleep had fled in spite of a respectable effort to find it again.  The thought that Alexandra might be in the orchard brought him to his feet.  Using the excuse of a morning bath, he dismissed the troubling jabber of his conscience that decried his obvious hope of spying on her again and complained that it was not a respectable thing to do.

My second Regency is mainly in the hero’s point-of-view.  Lord Rupert is the rakish son of the Marquess of Lansdowne.  His covert escapades to ferret out a ring of aristocratic criminals requires that he disappear into the British countryside for a short time under a false identity.  Here he meets Alexandra Dancy, a country miss whose family hides its aristocratic origins because they must guard a dark secret.  How can the two overcome the prejudices and hidden identities that divide them?  Sorry, you will just have to wait and read it to learn the answer.

Oooh, sounds very intriguing. I'm looking forward to reading your second book, Wanda. When do you expect it to be published?
LYDIA was so enjoyable. I'm going to read it again before I loan it out to anyone. It's hard to believe that it was your first novel. You are so talented!
