Weekend Writing Warriors ~ 5/03/15 Only Scandal Will Do



Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors!

I’m changing it up this week because my Georgian novel, Only Scandal Will Do is on SALE for just .99 at Amazon.


This snippet is from early in the novel. Lady Katarina Fitzwilliam is kidnapped and has been sold in a brothel auction to the highest bidder, a masked man. Here are my 8 from their first encounter:

masked-manShe jerked away from the touch of his hand, and said, “You may have paid for a slave, sir, but what you find in this room is a lady in distress.”

“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.”


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.

    She’s in deep doo-doo in a diaphanous gown. ‘Lady’ no more, perhaps.
