Usually we focus on the heroine and hero, but I though it would be fun to let our secondary characters shine today. If you have buy links or social media links, please post them as well.
Here two of mine from A Kiss for Lady Mary. Lady Eunice Phipson, is my heroine’s aunt and Mr. Brian Doust is the local vicar.
Mr. Doust twined her arm with his, drawing her close. “Invite me, and I’ll try to discover his intent.”
She gazed up at him. “You would assist in this the conspiracy?”
His eyes warmed. “My lady, I would have thought that by now you’d have realized there is very little I would not do for you and those who matter to you.”
“Oh my.” Warmth rose in her face. How long had it been since she’d blushed? “You have me acting like a girl again, and I must tell you, my salad days are long past.”
He raised her fingers to his lips, kissing them one by one. “I think you are the perfect age. I would be honored if you will call me Brian, and may I call you Eunice?”
This was more than she had expected and everything she had wished for. Pulling his head down to her, she pressed her lips to his. He moved slowly, gently at first; then she touched her tongue to the seam of his lips and he opened his mouth to receive her. Frissons of pleasure shot through her as he tilted his head, deepening the kiss. She threw her arms around him, pressing her breasts to his chest. Who would have thought a rector could kiss like this?
Their tongues tangled and caressed. He tightened his arms around her. Oh, God. How could she have lived so long alone?

Happy Sunday!! Well, this has been a busy week! Let’s start with the winners.
D Foster for winning a copy of Cheryl’s book, Duchess by Mistake!
Aleen Davis for winning a copy of Barbara’s book, Lady of the Flames!
And bn100 for winning a copy of Anne’s book, Murder in Hindsight!
As for my books, It looks as if the next series will be titled “The Worthingtons.” So, harking back to a few weeks ago, if you had “The Worthingtons” in your title, you’ve won a book. You can pick any book in The Marriage Game series.
I can’t resist posting the cover art for the first book, Three Weeks to Wed. Moving on to The Worthingtons, I finished the second book in the series. My editor and I were conversing via email, and we touched on the idea of having novellas in between some of the full length books. I think it’s an interesting concept. What do you think?
We are still in St. Martin. Yesterday we went to the market, the bakery across the street, and a few shops. It appears fans are back in style, which thrills my historical heart. Unfortunately, they were quite pricy.
How have you been?

Every once in a while real life intrudes in an unhelpful way. My guest author today, Cheryl Bolen, has been temporarily stranded in Europe by a transportation strike. As soon as she returns, I will post her blog.
