Eight Sentence Sunday 4-14-13

Eight Sentence Sunday!

Here's a tidbit from my soon to be released steamy regency romance called Wicked Designs (Samhain January 2014). Innocent but brave Emily Parr has learned just who has kidnapped her.






“Miss Parr, I’m not sure if you know exactly who I am.”
Godric could have punched himself for the flash of pain in her lovely eyes when she finally met his gaze.
“I know who you are. The Duke of Essex. A veritable devil, or so the ladies say. You bring ruination upon a woman with one look.”
“Just a look? I thought I had to at least say a 
lady’s name…” he chuckled, but she did not laugh.


Watch my blog and facebook page for details on the upcoming release of Wicked Designs to find out what happens to Emily and the all too dangerous and charming Godric.

  8. Lauren,
    He's so darn fresh, I love him!!! The excerpt gives us a taste for the kind of rogue he is! I hope your heroine gives him what he deserves! (I'm sure she does!)
