The Temptation of Lady Serena
Supported by a wonderful cast of characters, Quinn’s thoughtfully drawn lovers teach each other the value of love in this delicious Regency treat.” ~ New York Times Bestselling author Eileen Dreyer
Custom-made gowns…nights at the theater…and a host of eligible bachelors. Accustomed to living a quiet life in the Scottish Borderlands, Lady Serena Weir has never had any of these luxuries. But when Serena’s brother demands she finally have a Season in London, she’s thrust into a glamorous world she’s only dreamed of…
Robert, Viscount Beaumont remembers all too well what it feels like to be in love. That is why he must keep his distance from Serena. He’s only felt his pulse stir the way it does now when he made the mistake of loving the wrong woman once before. Yet the more he strives to resist his feelings, the nearer he is to falling under Serena’s seductive charms…
Here’s an excerpt.
As Robert walked toward Grosvenor Square, he felt better than he had in weeks. Wilson, the Dunwood butler, showed him to the library, where Marcus, working on some papers, glanced up as Robert was announced.
“Robert, what brings you here?”
He glanced at the stack of documents on the large mahogany partner’s desk. “I don’t wish to disturb you. Do you have time?”
Marcus waved his hand at the papers. “Don’t let this bother you. I don’t have to do it all myself. That’s one of the joys of having a wife who knows as much about estate management as do I. Please, come in.”
He motioned Robert to a chair.
Robert sat and tried unsuccessfully to sort his thoughts. This was not going to be as easy as he’d supposed. “Marcus, when you were courting Phoebe, did you feel, well, crazed?”
“Crazed, exasperated, murderous, as well as a number of other things,” Marcus said. “What has my courtship with Phoebe to do with you?”
Robert swallowed. “Well I—I, I’m not quite sure how to put this . . .”
Marcus’s face darkened. “Put what? Is it something to do with Phoebe?”
“No, no. I need advice because . . . I am not feeling at all the thing lately, and I came to ask for Phoebe’s help.”
Marcus’s lips twitched. “Robert, are you trying to tell me you think you might be in love?”
Beaumont recoiled as if his friend had thrown a punch. “Love? No. It’s not possible.”
He slumped in the chair and sunk into his own thoughts. The problem was they weren’t telling him anything useful.
The other big news is that Hubby gave me a waterproof camera for Christmas. Here is the view of the large yachts that visited Magen’s this week. First from the beach, then from my paddle board. I’ll have to work on the water spots.
This is Little Magen’s. It’s the only nude beach on island. You can see the change in the water color from the middle of the bay to the edges.
So tell me what you think?
Oh, and in case you hadn’t heard, thanks to all of you, The Seduction of Lady Phoebe has been on the B & N bestseller list for over a week now!
Have a wonderful week, and Happy New Year!!
