Six Sentence Sunday–7/15/12–Only Scandal Will Do

Only Scandal Will Do

Releases on July 23, 2012!

Scandal is back!  My historical romance novel, Only Scandal Will Do is back again for Six Sentence Sunday!  Hope you enjoy!

Lady Katarina Fitzwilliam has been kidnapped and auctioned off in a brothel to the highest bidder, a man in a cloak and mask.  He plays master to her slave, but when she protests she is a lady, he challenges her to prove it to him.  She explains the circumstances and when he becomes sympathetic, she lowers her guard and allows him to comfort her.  She finds herself strongly attracted to the stranger and he takes full advantage of her willingness–until she comes to her senses.

Lady Katarina realized he  didn’t believe her story after all.  She threatened to kill him if he didn’t let her go and insisted once more that she was who she said she was.  Now she takes action.  In the aftermath of her strike, Kat commandeers the man’s cloak and prepares to make her escape.

The still-unmoving figure lay sprawled on the carpet as if dead, and a twinge of remorse shot through her. A fleeting memory of his lips on hers caused her to catch her breath. She was not sorry she’d struck him. Nevertheless, she hoped the man would recover.

And live another day to debauch someone else? Steeling herself against her previous charitable thoughts and disturbing memories, she peeped out the door. 


Will she make good her escape?

I’m very excited for this release in just one more week! I’ll be celebrating starting July 23rd with a release party and giveaways.  Please come by!

I appreciate everyone’s comments, so thank you in advance for leaving one!  Please also check out the other Six Sentence Sunday participants.  I know you’ll be glad you did!

    Well she probably could have killed him. But later she’ll be glad she didn’t :D

  10. I can easily understand her emotions about not killing the man and yet wanting him severely punished. Now she has to skulk through the halls… I love the stress in this scene.
