WORK-IN-PROGRESS WEDNESDAY-Thanks for dropping in!

Hope you enjoy this week's snippet from my WIP.  I am almost done with the first revision.  Yay! 
 ***Now, with eyes wide open and fixed on the faintly visible ceiling above him, Rupert allowed his thoughts to weave in and out of the days following that last blow to their love, when sobriety had brought a full realization of his offenses and evoked ineffectual pleas for forgiveness.  His flagrant and frequent indiscretions had finally cost him her devotion.  What had begun as a pleasure bath in wanton self-indulgence soon became an attempt to numb a pain born as much from losing Emily as of disgust for his reckless improprieties.

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.

Your writing amazes me, Wanda. Every sentence is abounding in imagery and flows so beautifully. After studying this snippet to get as full a picture as I could, I had to read it out loud to enjoy the alliterative and other poetic qualities.
