Book two in the Carte Blanche Series

Beth and Grey’s passionate battle of wills continues...
New York Merchant Prince Grey Sexton loves the audacious, spirited young temptress who seduced him in a Philadelphia bookseller’s and made passionate love to him in his carriage. Her fiery nature broke through his cold self-protection. But in a time of war and trade disruption, he cannot allow himself to be distracted. He vows to put business above all else in his life, including his bride.
Shocked and hurt by Grey's distance, Beth wonders whether he truly returns the burning love she feels for him. Beth demands that Grey prove he can truly change once and for all or else she will not start a family with him. But will the dark, sensual secrets she yet keeps repel this arrogant, self-controlled gentleman she has married?

  1. No way - I do sometimes starts the conflict in a relationship

  2. "I Do" does not always mean HEA. There will always be conflict and some fighting.

  3. Oh, the sparks and conflict are still alive after I do :)

  4. "I Do" never ends the story or the can be the conflict.

  5. As I've seen for a few too many friends, saying "I do" doesn't make life easier, in fact it usually makes it infinitely harder! But if there is true love then marriage makes for a happy ending!

  6. Nah, one can have a HEA without I DO.

  7. Oh hell no, LOL - that's definitely why we read romance novels, so we can pretend that HEA exists ;-)

    Thank you for writing things that allow me to get lost in fantasyland! And for this giveaway!

  9. Hello Natasha,

    Does "I do" always automatically mean "Happily Ever After"? Is being in love enough to make a marriage work? LOL Sorry to laugh, but that's why we read books from Authors like yourself so we "can" live that Fantasy World. A marriage is something that you ALWAYS have to work at & it doesn't get easier with years, it actaully gets harder. There has to be communication (both ways lol) & both have to want to keep the marriage fresh & alive. It is easy to say the words, "I Love You"'s meaning it that takes will bring the true "Happily Ever After".
    Take Care & Have a Very Merry Holiday Season,

  10. No, I don't believe that the words I do mean happily ever after. In this day and age its getting harder and harder to be happy with your significant other. It's a lot of work to make a marriage work, not just two words. And a lot of people who said I do aren't living a happily ever after life. It takes both people, a lot of compromise, communication and honesty for a HEA.

  11. Whoooppps, I forgot to include my email.

  12. It does not end the conflict always. It can often be the start of the conflict, especially if there is a sequel to the story.
    Thanks for being part of the hop and for the chance to win such a great prize! <^_^>

  13. Oh course I do does not end any conflict. Something is bound to happen to test the relationship.

  17. Happiness. You have to make your own ,and be happy with who you are. If it doesn't work ,move on.

  18. i do not believe that we should let ourselves get lazy about our relationships just because we reach a milestone

  19. definitely not, speaking from experience , sure there is the honeymoon period but after that all sorts of conflicts happen. money being a big one or lack of.

  20. Hello Everyone!

    Thank you for stopping by and entering my contest. Lots of wonderful, thought provoking answers. :)

    I hope everyone is enjoying their holiday season.

  21. It sometimes does, but not always:)


  22. No, love dies if respect and other things don't exist in a relationship.


  23. No. Whenever you're in a relationship with someone you always have to work on it. And conflicts come up. Thanks for the giveaway! Gloria

  24. Well, having been married 22 years, I feel as though I'm an expert on marriage and the answer is an emphatic no! Every day is work, work, work, but the rewards are so worth it!

  25. So many places to enter ,I'm lost.
