#SexySnippets with an Earl and a Courtesan and a bit of mystery

Hi and welcome to #SexySnippets. Seven sentences from a book or WIP.

Having bounced up and down, enjoyed a glass or two of a rather lovely fizz (Tattinger) and signed my contract for The Earl and The Courtesan, book one of my new Daring Ladies series, with Totally Bound Publishing, I thought I'd do my sexy snippets from there. Okay it's not out until May but I might as well tease you on and off til then ;)

A club for unconventional females?

Never. The ton would be scandalised.

However, that didn’t matter to

the members. They weren’t ton material.

As for scandal?

It was their middle name.


Once a courtesan, not always a courtesan
Time to move on.
Who better to do it with than a rake?


Theresa Kyle, ex-courtesan, will not kowtow to any man in marriage, let alone an odious ex-pupil. When the man rejects her refusal she reluctantly agrees to seek help.
Jamie, the Earl of Weston is in a fix of his own. The marriage mart is not for him, let alone a compulsory wedding due to the machinations of his mother.
A mutual friend seems to have the perfect plan.
The Earl and the courtesan—what better way to foil those who want to see them married against their will? Alas, the best-laid plans go awry. Neither expected to fall in love in the process, nor can there ever be a real future for them. 
As far as Jamie is concerned, being a member of the aristocracy comes in handy when you need to bend the rules to your will. Convincing Teresa, however, may well be harder than winning over the Ton.

Here's your seven sentences...

The lady in question will appear to want you as much as you want her. I hope.”

All of a sudden Jamie began to enjoy himself. “Oh there will be no appearing to do so. Come on, Ria, do you want to wager I can’t make her want me?” He raised one eyebrow in query. “Really?”
