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.”
