I have a new book coming out April 16. Willful Miss Winchester is the third book in my Lady Katherine's Comeuppance Series.
Blurb: Rash, brash and low on cash, Miss Charlotte Winchester sails across the Atlantic ready to partake of all London had to offer the favorite sister of Lord Thomas Winchester.
What a shock for our impulsive adventurer when she arrives at her brother's London townhouse to find he and his wife sailed for America weeks before.
Reclusive widower Lord Lucas Tanner wanted nothing more than to live in obscurity while continuing to mourn the loss of his wife and infant son. When his house burns to the ground, he accepts the invitation of his friend, Lord Thomas Winchester, to reside at his home while Thomas and Lady Katherine visit America. All goes well for him until Charlotte shows up.
Cultures and passions clash when these two unlikely roommates are forced to share a home. Will they draw a chalk line through the center of the parlor, or will their acrimony turn to matrimony?
“Maybe you need to spank some good manners into me.”
“That is the first sensible thing you have said since you arrived in this house.” The ominous tone and the dark look in his eyes filled her with warm anticipation. Anticipation of what, she had no specific notion, only that the womanly part of her had become acutely aware of his inherent masculinity. Her taunt had been intended to elicit a response, even if only to shock.
It had its desired affect because within a moment of speaking, she was situated across his lap, the skirts of Lady Katherine’s gown tossed up over her head and her backside subjected to the stern ministrations of Lord Lucas Tanner. She was grateful to Beatrice for also pilfering a pair of Lady Katherine’s undergarments, though the sheer fabric did little to provide protection from the slap of Lord Tanner’s hand against her upturned rump, she could at least assure herself that she had been somewhat modestly covered.
“Stop, this instant.”
