How about a lil historical romance!
Have an intriguing tale with a conspiracy in France and visit with handsome rakes in London !
Revolution in France, rebels in England, and one woman caught in the crossfire…
For her unwitting participation in a plot to embezzle the Exchequer, Lady Abigail Houghall has spent the last two years exiled to the city of Bath. A card sharp, sometime mistress, and target of scandalous gossip by the London Beau Monde, Lady Abigail plots to escape her gilded cage as well as the prudish society that condemns her. But the times are not easy. France is in chaos. The king has been executed, and whispers of a similar revolution are stirring in England. And because of her participation in the robbery plot, the Spymaster of England is blackmailing her into passing him information about the members of London’s upper crust.
When the dashing English spy Daniel Ridgeway takes a seat at her card table and threatens to expose her for cheating, she has no choice but to do as he demands: seduce the leader of the revolutionaries and learn what she can about their plot. As she’s drawn deeper into Daniel’s dangerous world, from the seedy backstreets of London to the claustrophobic catacombs of a war-torn Paris, she realizes an even more dangerous fact. She’s falling in love with her seductive partner. And the stakes of this game might just be too high, even for her.
Lord Lucien’s Lessons
‘Tis a rake’s solemn duty to teach his friends how to please a lady.
No rake in London has a better reputation for pleasing the ladies than the handsome Lord Lucien. When his friends beg him for a bit of advice, how can he refuse? It would be downright churlish not to pass on the skills he has acquired. Of course, teaching such things requires more than a few words and naughty images, and hands-on experience is by far the best way to learn. Which means he’s going to need a willing wench to offer some demonstrations. And he knows just the lass for the job.
Cora, a sassy barmaid at Lord Lucien’s favorite tavern, has enjoyed his particular talents more than once. She’s shocked at first by his request that she help him show the lads a thing or two. Sharing her bed with him is one thing, but having an audience is quite another. Yet wouldn’t she be doing a favor to ladies and low-born girls alike if she helped teach these gents what to do? It would be an act of kindness, really. She certainly wouldn’t mind earning a hefty fee in exchange for having the time of her life. Why, with a bit of luck, it might even be the start of a new career.
