UPDATE!! Louisa Cornell is the winner of Sally MacKenzie’s book, Surprizing Lord Jack!!
A lot has happened this week and between editing, plotting ideas for the next two books, getting ready for the pre-order release of The Secret Life of Miss Anna Marsh in June, less than two weeks away, and being in charge of two conference events in July, I am unable to keep up with Eight Sentence Sunday.

I’d planned to announce the winners of Regina Jeffer’s and Sally MacKenzie’s books. Unfortunately, I’ve not received them yet. If I hear from either or both of them today I’ll post the winners.

Phoebe’s ears were adorned simply with pearl drops that tempted him to run the tip of his tongue over the outer swirl of her ear, to breathe in her fresh and woodsy scent.
Marcus couldn’t bear the thought that Phoebe would ever kiss another man. He never before felt such possessiveness. No other woman made his pulse race or called to his soul. He wanted to tell her she was his—had always been his.
