Spring Fling #BlogHop #GiftCard $150 #Giveaway! Erotic Romance, Regency Historical
Hello and welcome to my post on the Spring Fling Blog Hop
A big thank you to Jane Wakely for organizing and hosting this event.

A spring fling can turn into real love. My novella Grey's Lady is a story about just such a fling changing the lives of the two people who gave into lust and found love.

There have been many movies that have a spring fling turning into love as their central focus. 

One of my favorite all time spring fling movies is "Where The Boys Are." (1960)

"Where The Boys Are" on Amazon Prime, click here.

I am happy to announce that I have a new release coming on Friday, March 21.

TRUST ME, Regency Risks Book Two
Erotic Romance, Regency Historical, Light BDSM, Rubenesque

Anne and Jon's story continues.

Is she insane?

All of Mayfair is whispering the question.

Anne Lloyd, the new Countess of Ruel, thought she’d finally begun to heal from witnessing the terrible event of her first husband’s death. But, from her Grandmother-in-law to her new husband’s ex-mistresses, the state of her sanity is all that is on everyone’s lips. What scares her more than the potential social ruin is even she isn’t sure they aren’t right.

Jonathon Lloyd, the Earl of Ruel, has commanded men on the battlefield and women in the ballrooms and bedrooms with his dominant personality. It tears him apart that he can’t command his wife’s terrors to go away. To top it off, he has to battle his grandmother for Anne’s acceptance. There are times when the bloody fields of Europe are easier to navigate than the so-called civilized graces of Society.

There are those who will stop at nothing to tear apart the fragile bond between the newlyweds. Can Lady and Lord Ruel learn to trust each enough to keep their love, and her sanity, intact?

An excerpt from Trust Me, Regency Risks, Book Two
Jon released his tension in quiet whistle, and then tapped his fingers upon the desktop again.
There was no help for it. They must face this. No one could be allowed to believe that either of them was hiding in shame.
The bed creaked and drew his attention.
Anne had sat up, her black-as-midnight hair tumbled over her shoulders and her dark blue eyes were huge in a face that seemed a bit strained. A catch in his chest caused him to hold his breath.
He glanced back at the letter.

You stupid boy, did you forget yourself and stash your brains in your breeches?

 Lady S. tells me that this Lady C. threw herself at your head and made such a spectacle of herself that you will be forced to marry her. Lady W. B. and the Countess of C. both say they believe you are already gone away on your wedding trip. Is that it then? I demand to know! Have you married Lady C.? Please tell me you haven’t wed this hoyden!!!  

       “It is unfair to be judged solely on such a moment.” Anne's voice was very soft.
         “I don’t like it, either. But it is the way our world is arranged. You are a lady and now you are my lady.” 
        Her shoulders rose and fell with her deep inhalation and then they slumped. “She makes me seem so dreadful.” 
        He ran a caressing hand over her upper back. “Anne, don’t be distressed. You must trust me to think on what to do. And you mustn’t worry.” He squeezed her hand. “We’ll give lie to the rumours.” He put all the confidence he possessed into his tone. However, he knew Cherry and Maria could be very vindictive. As could his grandmother. 
       A slight pounding began at Jon’s temples.  Was Anne strong enough to face the fire?
Anne and Jon's story began with A MEASURED RISK, Regency Risks Book One
