The fine gravel crunched lightly beneath Alexandra’s slippers as she stalked away from the revolting indignities she had just endured. Tears of fury and pain burned at the corners of her eyes as unbridled hatred toward Cecil Beford regressed into chokes of bitter sorrow. Nostalgia and grief flowed through her as she mourned anew the loss of her home and the world from which fate had torn her.
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.
