Weekend Writing Warriors ~ 5/17/15 Only Marriage Will Do



Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors!

I’m back this week with my second Georgian novel, Only Marriage Will Do is due release on June 9th, only about 3 weeks from now!

Marriage 2


At this point in the story, Lady Juliet Ferrars is headed north, fleeing the man who claims to be her husband. Now, in the dead of night, a man has appeared in her room in the coaching inn.

The man raced toward her, calling out something she couldn’t hear for the blood pounding in her ears. The candle he carried blew out. He cursed and reached for her.

“Nooo, get away! Don’t touch me.” Slapping at his hands, she twisted to avoid him and landed with a thud, flat on her back. Air rushed out of her lungs.

He sped around the end of the bed.

She struggled to scream for Glynis, but produced only a high-pitched squeak.

The man knelt beside her.

The first book of the House of Pleasure series, Only Scandal Will Do, is available for .99 at Amazon.

Only Marriage Will Do is available for Pre-Order here.

That’s all for this week. Hope you enjoyed it!

And don’t forget to check out the rest of the Warriors here.  There’s some fantastic snippets to be read.

    Tense. I’m hoping he’s there to help rather than capture. 🙂 Oh, and it looks like we are release day buddies in June. Awesome!


  2. Carrie-Anne says:

    That’s a really tense, dramatic scene. I’m curious about the identity of this mystery man and what’s going to happen next.


  3. Ed Hoornaert says:

    Lots of meaningful action and emotion here. Great eight, or however many. (Hope this doesn’t post twice. WordPress is acting funny right now.)

    Great snippet! Can’t wait for the release!


  7. Eden says:

    She doesn’t know he’s her husband? Oh, wow…. how did this happen? And yet… he kneels beside her, so beyond scaring her half out of her wits, it doesn’t seem like he’s intent on hurting her.


  8. Whar a great teaser! We must know who the man is and what he’s up to. Considering your first House of Pleasure book, anything might be going on. Well done!


  9. Love, love this snippet with all the elements of misunderstanding and possibiltes.


  10. Ashley York says:

    This is intense! Pre-ordered my copy. More next week, I hope 🙂

    You can write action! But you are a terrible tease.


  12. Kim Magennis says:

    Oh no! Who is he? What will he do? You created an excellent sense of how frantic she is in such a short space. Well done!
