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. This begins only a few lines from where we left off last week.
“I tell you for the third time, I am Lady Katarina Fitzwilliam!” She all but screamed the words at him as though making them louder would somehow convince him of their truth.
“I see you would prefer to play a different scenario, my lady?” he asked, smirking as he emphasized the last two words. “I, for one, would fancy seduction rather than force.”
She clenched her hands and shouted, “But I am a lady, you oaf! Why will you not believe me?”
“Then convince me, Lady Katarina.” His voice dropped to low, sultry tones. Even worse, his mouth softened from the hard lines of the arrogant master to the soft, sensual half-smile of the practiced rake. A shiver ran through her that had nothing to do with fright.
Only Scandal Will Do is available at Amazon currently for $1.99.
He has the woman of his dreams, but what price will he have to pay to win her heart?
