Weekend Writing Warriors ~ 6/15/14 Only Scandal Will Do ~ Pleasure to be Had


Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors!

For the Sundays in June for WWW, I’ve decided to share snippets from each of my back listed books. This week is Only Scandal Will Do, my first full length historical. 


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?

In this scene, Lady Katarina meets her buyer, a masked man:

“A lady in distress?” he laughed and straightened. “How did a lady come to find herself on display at an auction, scandalously clad in a transparent Greek costume, in Madame Vestry’s House of Pleasure?”

“House of Pleasure?” she squeaked.

“Where else would such a thing occur?” The man’s amusement seemed to deepen at her indignation. “And there will certainly be pleasure here tonight, slave.”

    I just read Only Scandal Will Do in ebook form from my library. I can’t find a second book in the series, either in the library or on my favorite used book site, Thrift Books. Is there a second book?


    • Jenna Jaxon says:

      Hi, Deborah. So glad you enjoyed Scandal! Yes, there is a second book, Only Marriage Will Do and you are so in luck, because it goes on sale tomorrow for just .99! I hope you enjoy that one as well. It’s the story of Duncan’s sister, Juliet.
