This week, I’m returning to my upcoming release To Woo A Wicked Widow, due out in 80 days! So I’ll be sharing quite a few snippets from this Regency romance until then.
I’m continuing the scene, at a ball, where Charlotte meets Nash, the Earl of Wrotham. As meet cutes go, it’s pretty cute. 🙂 We are in Nash’s POV Charlotte has tripped, fallen into his arms, and he responded with “The pleasure is certainly all mine, my lady.” If you want to catch up to this point, click here.

Lady Cavendish gasped and raised her head, her green eyes flashing.
“Are you all right, Charlotte?” Lady John asked, stepping forward, her lips puckered as if trying to hide a smile.
“Yes, I am fine, Jane. I stepped on the hem of my gown is all.” She cut her eyes at Nash and her lips thinned to a line. “Thank you, my lord, for coming to my rescue.”
Nash smiled. Even angry, the woman was a vision to behold. “Not a’tall, my lady; glad to have been of service.”
BLURB for To Woo A Wicked Widow:
The war years are behind them.
The future is before them.
And one by one, the widows of Lyttlefield Park are getting restless . . .
Lady Charlotte Cavendish is still the spirited girl who tried to elope in the name of love. That dream was thwarted by her father who trapped her into a loveless, passionless marriage. But now widowed, Charlotte is free to reenter the giddy world of the ton—and pursue her desires. For hardly your typical widow, she remains innocent to the pleasures of the flesh. Yet her life is finally her own, and she intends to keep it that way . . .
Nash, the twelfth Earl of Wrotham, is beguiled by Charlotte at first sight—and the feeling is mutual. When he receives her intriguing invitation to a house party, the marriage-minded lord plans to further their acquaintance. But even he cannot sway her aversion to matrimony, and only with great restraint does he resist her most tempting offer. For unbeknownst to Charlotte, the misadventures of the past are revisiting them both, and bedding her could cost him everything—or give him everything he ever wanted . . .
Available for pre-order at Amazon.
