Happy #MidWeekTease day folks...
I've had very little net lately so I'm busy playing catch up. Today's tease is going to be from The Duke's Seduction of Lady M...
I've had a sneak preview of the fabulous cover, but, it's not quite ready to be revealed yet...Soon I hope...
Rules are meant to broken…
The mysterious Lady Mary McCoy is tired of playing by the rules of the ton. As a wealthy widow she fully plans on living her life to the full – free from the constraints of marriage.
And if she has to keep her high society status a secret in order to indulge in the more pleasurable pastimes of life, then so be it! Just as long as it’s on her terms…
Until notorious rake, Brody Weston, Duke of Welland, returns to his ancestral home – intent on her seduction! Slowly, luxuriously, he begins to unravel her secrets, one tantalising kiss at a time. And suddenly Lady Mary realises that breaking her own rules with the Duke is the most dangerous thing she’s ever done!
And your tease...
(Brody is on his way home from the continent after serving the crown there...)
The door of the school opened with a squeak that shattered the quiet afternoon, and a young, dark-haired lady dressed in a deep blue gown emerged. He certainly didn’t know her but one swift look told him he’d like to. In every way possible. As she bent to pick up a large wicker basket from inside the school foyer and then shut the door behind her, her trim figure drew his attention like a lodestone. Brody slowed his horse and stared at her again, willing her to look up. Her gown clung to her contours and showed him a posterior perfectly rounded, and, when she straightened, pert breasts which from that distance looked to be exactly the right size to fill his hands.
For the first time in many a long month a certain part of his anatomy perked up.
Down boy, on a horse is not the place to make your presence felt. However he couldn’t take his eyes of the woman, and was hard pressed not to catcall after her.
Sadly—or perhaps luckily, judging by the state his body was now in—she didn’t so much as glance his way, but walked across the lane and turned into an alley beside the bakery.
Ignored again by god. Brody on the other hand couldn’t take his eyes off her shapely body. She moved so confidently. Each stride showed a brief glimpse of a well-turned ankle and a sway of that shapely rear. He was a connoisseur of perfect ankles and bottoms. And legs, torsos and breasts. From his vantage point all still looked more than up to scratch.
He hesitated and wondered how best to make an introduction.
Too late. The lady carried her basket in one hand, lifted the latch and turned into the side entrance of the bakery. The door swung shut behind her and she disappeared from view. In front of an interested baker and goodness knows how many customers was not the time or the place to show interest in a stranger, especially as he would have to tell one and all who he was.
Damn. I’ve lost my touch. Pray to god he found it again and soon.
