Thanks for taking a minute to read an excerpt from my work-in-progress. Have a great day.
A beautiful woman was sending him an invitation every red-blooded man understood, and having already been deprived too many days of a woman’s touch, he felt a twinge of desire to accept, a tantalizing inclination that faded with astonishing haste. Rupert wondered why the offer of such sweet nectar did not at once set him to orchestrating his conquest of the bold temptress, especially out here in a virtual wilderness away from opportunity. Maybe getting dirt under his nails was cleaning up his morals. Or perhaps a little distance between him and too much opportunity was giving him some perspective.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.
