Work-In-Progress Wednesday (Better late than never?)

Friday, September 16, 2011

Hope you enjoy this week's work-in-progress snippet.  Thanks for taking a minute to read it.  And a special thanks to my followers!

Alexandra drew in a deep breath and sought to subdue the anxious tremblings assailing her person.  Throughout the scattered wreckage in her heart rampaged a bevy of fears begging to be stilled by a gentle hand.  Her thoughts flew to the safety she had felt in Captain Carrington’s arms.  How she wanted him.  Was he in Bath yet?  Could she run to him?  A lone tear trickled free, and others threatened, but summoning courage, she fought the escalating despair with every angry thought or impression she could discover.

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.
