Sizzling Summer Reads Party

Welcome to The Romance Review’s              Sizzling Summer Reads Party!

I hope you enjoy the party–all month long!  From July 1 thru 31 there will be games and prizes, not only here but on all of the more than 400 sites participating!  The Romance Review is also giving away a Grand Prize of a $100.00 Gift Card.  Just register with The Romance Reviews and start playing!

My Sizzling Summer Read is an historical romance, set in Georgian England.  This is my first full-length novel to be published and I’m very excited because the wait is almost over!  Monday, July 23 Only Scandal Will Do releases from Lyrical Press.  Here’s the blurb–see what you think.

Blurb for Only Scandal Will Do:

He has the woman of his dreams, but what price will he have to pay to win her heart?

Kidnapped and sold at auction in a London brothel, Lady Katarina Fitzwilliam squelches an undeniable attraction to the masked stranger who purchased her, pits her wits against him, and escapes him and the scandal that would ruin her life.

Unable to resist temptation in a London brothel, Duncan Ferrers, Marquess of Dalbury, purchases a fiery beauty. She claims she’s a lady, but how can she be? No lady of his acquaintance in polite society is anything like her. Then he discovers she is who she says, and that this latest romp has compromised her reputation. He knows how that is. One more scandal and he’ll be cast out of London society, but he needs a wife who’ll provide an heir to carry on his illustrious family’s name. He seeks out Katarina, intending only to scotch the scandal, but instead finds his heart ensnared. He’s betting their future he’ll capture her heart, but does he have what it takes to win the wager?

WARNING: A blade-wielding heroine who crosses swords with a master of sensuality.

And if you liked that, you’ll love the excerpt!

Excerpt from Only Scandal Will Do:

Katarina clutched the chair’s golden upholstery to keep from launching herself at him and wrapping her fingers around his arrogant throat. “I am Lady Katarina Fitzwilliam, sister to the Earl of Manning. I was kidnapped and brought here tonight against my will.”

He cocked his head. Then his mouth twitched. “Truly? What an exciting life you must lead…Lady Katarina, was it?” He chuckled deep in his chest, and took a step toward the chair.

She glared at him. “I am Lady Katarina Fitzwilliam, you dullard.”

“And true ladies always run around London at night scandalously underdressed as Greek slaves?”

“My brother and I were on our way to a masquerade ball when I was abducted.”

“As was I, fair lady,” he bowed with an exaggerated flourish, “when I decided to come to this charming establishment instead. Perhaps if we had continued on our ways uninterrupted, we would even now be dancing together at the ball.” That nasty laugh grated against her nerves worse than the screech of rusty nails, making her contemplate murder. If the scoundrel didn’t believe her story, killing him might be her only means of escape.

Check back during the month–I’ll be posting excerpts for Scandal on Sweet Saturday Sample, Six Sentence Sunday, and Horny Humps Day during July.

And there will be a BIG PARTY on July 23 when the book becomes available for purchase. Come on by and party with me! 🙂
