Weekend Writing Warriors ~ 5/03/20 To Woo A Wicked Widow ~ The Lady Arrives

Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors!

To begin May off fresh, I’m shifting to the first of my Widows’ Club books, To Woo A Wicked Widow, because all the e-books of the Widows’ Club series are on sale this month!


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 . . .


Some portions of this snippet may be changed from the book’s regular format to allow for WWW’s 10 line requirement.


Nash stared at the list of names, fighting not to crush it in his fury—he needed the information it contained, although he’d read its contents often enough he’d almost committed it to memory. Six of his tenant families had been attacked in the last week by this gang of what purported to be ex-soldiers unable to secure work after the war; they had taken matters into their own hands by robbing and pillaging in hopes of stealing enough for their families to survive.

Nash shook his head—soldiers—he could scarcely credit it.

He’d received the report late last night and this morning, he’d ridden out to the latest victim, John Wright, a wheelwright by trade, and what he had found had not been pretty. He closed his eyes and swore under his breath.

There was a knock at the door, and Acres opened it to announce, “Lady Cavendish is here, my lord, in the small reception room.”

Nash’s head jerked up. Charlotte? He tossed the list onto his cluttered desk and all but ran from the room; he strode swiftly into the green chamber and stopped. She stood in the middle of the room, severe in a black riding habit, but with a ravishing hat sitting jauntily on her head, its ostrich feather trailing over her shoulder like an invitation to likewise run his fingers down her back.

    He sounds so frustrated, yet easily switches mood when she arrives. I hope that bodes well for both of them. Because of your snippets (esp. last week) I got Heart of Desire. Loved it. You write banter so well.
