Regency Romance Snippet: Julia And Lord Lyneham

Regency Romance Snippet: Julia And Lord Lyneham

Currently I’m writing the seventh novel in Regency romance series, The Eardleys Of Gostwicke Hall.

(A reader asked whether she needed to read the novels in order. No — all the novels in the series can be read as standalones. The sixth novel, The Lady And The Devil: If You Knew Me, is the latest.)

Lady Julia’s novel will be the seventh. So here’s a snippet from Lady Julia’s Destiny: A Love To Treasure.

Regency romance snippet from Lady Julia’s Destiny

Lord Lyneham calls Lady Julia “that Eardley chit”, so why is she attracted to him? The best that can be said for him is that he’s unreasonable. The worst, that he’s a dangerous man, a spy for the King…

When Lady Julia meets Lord Lyneham…

Inhaling deeply, Julia arranged her features in a pleasant smile. As soon as O’Connor opened the doors, she walked straight through them before she lost her nerve. “My lord?” She asked.

Then she stopped abruptly. And gasped.

He was enormous. Without realizing, Julia stepped back. He looked like a pirate. A bad-tempered pirate. Tall, with shoulders as wide as a stable door, and glossy black hair down to his shoulders, Lyneham looked as if he’d be more comfortable on the deck of a ship, with a cutlass in his teeth and a dirk in his belt.

“You’re not —” She’d been about to say “you’re not that old”, and immediately thought better of it. She put her hand to her mouth and coughed.

He stared her up and down, from her exuberant curls to her half-boots. Then his gaze lingered on her bosom. “Who are you?” His voice was a deep growl.

Very pirate-like, she thought. Then she realized that he hadn’t bowed. How rude. She inhaled deeply. Shuttering her gaze, she lowered herself into the deepest curtsy she could. He might be as rude as he chose. She wouldn’t be.

Look for Lady Julia and Lord Lyneham’s story soon

In the meantime, have fun with the Eardleys. 🙂
