We’re thrilled to have author Wendy Soliman stopping by today to share the first chapter of her upcoming release, COMPROMISING THE MARQUESS; a regency romance to be released by Carina Press on 12/10! Wendy is also gifting a lucky commenter from this stop a copy of this upcoming book!
Back Cover Blurb:
Leah Elliott and her sister Bethany remove to the south coast, where Leah makes a living by picking up tidbits of gossip for a scandal sheet about the local family of consequence, the Forsters. She erroneously reports that the marquess, Hal Forster, is about to marry a local lady. To make up for her mistake, Leah offers to act as Hal’s paramour. In return he agrees to educate her in matters of romantic love, acting out scenes from Fanny Hill, a book which they have both read.
Leah discovers that Hal has a young Frenchman hidden on his boat, which makes her suspicious. During a grand ball at Forster Hall, the Frenchman kidnaps Leah, using her to lure Hal into a trap. Using her wits, Leah manages to warn the man she has fallen in love with that he’s in deadly peril. Managing to overcome his foes, Hal concentrates on discovering the truth behind the fire that killed Leah’s father and supposedly destroyed the rare books he so treasured. His efforts lead them both into more danger when they have a deadly confrontation with a scoundrel at an inn in the backstreets of London.
Deeply in love with his feisty scribe, Hal proposes marriage. Leah realizes that true love simply doesn’t recognise the class divide invented by society and joyously accepts him.
Find Compromising the Marquess @:
Wendy Soliman was brought up on the Isle of Wight in Southern England but now divides her time between Andorra and West Florida. She lives with her husband Andre and a rescued dog of indeterminate pedigree named Jake Bentley.
The Isle of Wight is full of historic buildings, which is where she acquired her love of history, absorbing it like osmosis. She is the author of nine single-title Regency romances and is excited about her up-coming series charting the fortunes of the Forster dynasty.
When not writing she enjoys reading other people’s books, walking miles with her dog whilst plotting her next scene, and is on a one-woman mission to save the wine industry from the economic slump. Well, someone’s got to do it!
