Thanks for taking a moment to read this week's post.***Rupert reached his rooms and locked the door behind him. In frustration, he tore off his shirt and blew out the lamp. He reached his window in hardly two steps and threw it open. With his hands he grasped the casing on both sides and leaned forward into the fresh air. The gentle, caressing currents seemed to carry Alexandra’s fresh scent to him as he remembered the way the loose tendrils of her hair had teased every nerve along his neck. In his mind he re-conjured the sensation of his lips against hers until the ache and longing threatened madness.
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.
