Only Scandal Will Do
Officially Released on July 23, 2012!
My historical romance novel, Only Scandal Will Do, is available for purchase! It released on July 19th and has been doing well in reviews and sales. So it’s back for a final encore at Six Sentence Sunday! Hope you enjoy!
I’m working toward an edits deadline so I won’t be able to return SSS visits until after Tuesday, but I’ll be by!
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. After a quick tussle she wounds him and escapes.
The following six are from Duncan’s POV, later that night when he wakes up at home, his face on fire from the gouges Katarina made.
Duncan slipped on his red-striped banyan and poured himself a brandy. Cautiously, he alternated sips of the fiery brew with bathing his cheek. Wincing, he rubbed the swollen scratch marks.
The girl had been magnificent—her hair, her face, her form, her spirit. He almost wished her story had been true, for she would make an excellent candidate for his bride.
But what on earth would a lady of good reputation be doing in a brothel?
I’ll be celebrating starting tomorrow with a release party and some awesome contests 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!
