Weekend Writing Warriors ~ 5/024/15 Only Marriage Will Do



Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors!

I missed the sign up this week, but if you’ve found me, I’ve put up another 10 lines from  my second Georgian novel, Only Marriage Will Do is due release on June 9th, only about 2 weeks from now!

Marriage 2


At this point in the story, Captain Amiable Dawson has just walked in on Lady Juliet Ferrars, who was preparing to take a bath. He has now retreated down the hall to his room, but she has made quite an impression on him.

Remembering her comely figure in a sheer nightgown beside the waiting bath, he closed his eyes and his groin stirred. He’d come to be her protector, not her debaucher. Still, images of Juliet, warm and wet and naked in that tub had popped into his head as he’d sat not two feet from her.

Unthinkable. Thank God, he’d left her chamber before temptation became too great.

Yet now, just down the hall, she would be sitting, relaxed in that tub, her shining hair piled haphazardly on her head, tendrils and wisps escaping to form a halo around her face. Her milky white complexion turned rosy by hot water, a deeper rose perhaps at the tips of breasts barely touching the water. Breasts that would feel soft and smooth beneath his fingers when he…

“Christ.” He tore at his cravat, doffed jacket, waistcoat and shirt in quick order, then up-ended the whole pitcher of cool washing water over his head.

The first book of the House of Pleasure series, Only Scandal Will Do, is currently 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!

    At least he’s gentlemanly by dousing himself with water, instead of taking any liberties with her!

    I think our gentleman is wishing that he wasn’t!
