Release Day! Passionate Promises: Nine Stories to Stir Your Passion

I'm so excited about the release of Passionate Promises, a collection of nine historical romance novellas by bestselling authors, and all for $0.99!

I was honored to be asked to contribute a story along the with the likes of such talented historical romance authors as Ella Quinn, Collette Cameron, Bronwen Evans, Victoria Vane, Barbara Monajem, Michelle McLean, and Violetta Rand.

My novella, Never Tempt a Rogue, finds Felicity Beckett, a young woman who's been bruised by love and become the chaperone for her cousin, squaring off with Alexander Evering, Viscount Lindsay, the man she must keep her cousin away from at a country house party.

Of course, it doesn't help that Lord Lindsay is distractingly attractive. This is Felicity's first impression of the scoundrel.

As you might imagine, their first meeting at the house party doesn't go so well. Here's a little snippet:

“What’s your name?” He knew enough of decorum to realize their whole encounter was inappropriate, but he was damn well going to know her name. She was the first indication that coming to his aunt’s house party might have been a good decision.
“My name is irrelevant, my lord.”
“I’m very sorry to hear that. Your parents were cruel to name you such a thing. A lady like you deserves a much prettier name.” He couldn’t resist teasing her. Later he’d be a gentleman, perhaps even apologize for his behavior, but now, when this woman stood looking at him as if she’d like his head on a spike, he could only think of ways to make her eyes to flare again.
“My name,” she bit out, her straight white teeth clenched in a grimace, “is Felicity Beckett.”
Laughter rumbled up his chest. “Felicity?” He looked at her lovely flushed face and roared with mirth. He hadn’t laughed in six months, and it felt freeing and glorious. “You do know what that word means, don’t you?”
She scowled. “I assure you I am very happy when men like you don’t provoke me.”
