#SexySnippets and a man at the end of his teather

Hi everyone, and welcome to #SexySnippets. Where we tease you with seven sentences from a book or WIP.

It's always great fun choosing a snippet and this week was no exception. However, really there was no contest. After all I just got a brand new cover title and blurb for a Regency that is up for preorder on Amazon and Kobo.

The Lord's Persuasion of Lady Lydia

Don't you just love the cover? I was privileged to be asked for some input and this is just perfect and I truly love it.


Seducing the wallflower…
Over the years, Lydia Field has perfected the art of being a wallflower. It’s the only way to avoid the attention of unwanted suitors – and the perils of a convenient, loveless marriage! Instead, she dreams of the day she can leave London’s high society behind her, trading the glamorous balls and afternoon teas for a quiet life in the country.
But in an unguarded moment, she finds herself catching the eye of notorious rake ‘Handsome Harry’, Lord Birnham. Now that he’s glimpsed the wildness and fire that lurks beneath Lydia’s demure exterior, Lord Birnham will not rest until he has unleashed the full extent of her passion!

For if there’s one skill that Lord Birnham is known for, it’s the art of persuasion…

and your #SexySnippets

Lydia gasped and Esther coughed dramatically. Jeremy ignored them both.
‘Manners.’ Harry narrowed his eyes and Jeremy looked a little discomforted. ‘I know so,’ Harry continued implacably. ‘Now unless you intend to be polite and greet us like a proper human being I suggest you leave.’ Harry paused. ‘Now.’
‘Oh all right, good afternoon everyone.’ Jeremy looked at Lydia with a curious expression. 
      Calculating, considering, almost evil; it made her shudder in trepidation.
