The earl has a proposition
He wants her as his mistress!
Miss Emma Waverley will do anything for her family - especially since she was the one to ruin their reputations with her failed elopement years ago! They desperately need money and rakish Lance, Earl of Houndsmere, offers his financial support.
But in exchange, he expects Emma in his bed! Of course, she must turn him down. Yet Lance's fine figure and commanding features are all too tempting...
Mary Brendan was always a keen reader of historical romance, especially the Regency period. She also writes gritty sagas under a different pseudonym. She was born in north London, lived for a while in Suffolk, and is now back closer to her roots and her adult sons in a village in Hertfordshire. When time permits, she relaxes by browsing junk shops, or by researching family history.
