Weekend Writing Warriors ~ 4/03/16 Only Scandal Will Do~ Kidnapped!


Only Scandal Will Do is April’s “Book of the Month” so I’ve put up 10 lines from my Georgian romance.


Lady Katarina Fitzwilliam has been kidnapped and auctioned in a brothel to the highest bidder, a masked man she is now trying to convince she is not a harlot.

masked-manKatarina clutched the chair’s golden upholstery to keep from launching herself at him and wrapping her fingers around his arrogant throat. “I am Lady Katarina Fitzwilliam, sister to the Earl of Manning. I was kidnapped and brought here tonight against my will.”

He cocked his head. Then his mouth twitched. “Truly? What an exciting life you must lead…Lady Katarina, was it?” He chuckled deep in his chest, and took a step toward the chair.

She glared at him. “I am Lady Katarina Fitzwilliam, you dullard.”

Only Scandal Will Do is available at Amazon currently for .99.


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.

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

    Even if she escapes, word of who she is and where she is may get out. She is, to coin a phrase, screwed. So to speak.

      That is a big concern, however, avoiding rape is probably Kat’s most pressing issue now. But yes, if word got out she’d be ruined or even worse forced to marry the rapist. Such were the ethics of the 18th century. 🙂


  4. Carrie-Anne says:

    She’s definitely one of your feistiest heroines! These two seem cut out for their ensuing battle of wits.

    “Dullard” – such a lovely word! I am sure that being able to use such words is part of the reason to write historical novels. Cant wait to read more, Jenna.
