The Scandal In Kissing An Heir:

Kingsborough Ball – Book 2

 

He is the next Marquis of Wolvington…

She is a lady with nothing but beauty and wits…

Together they share a forbidden kiss.

Lady Rebecca is determined to find a husband on her own terms, rather than marry any of the aging suitors her greedy aunt and uncle foist upon her. Her chance comes at the Kingsborough Ball, where she meets several potential grooms…yet no one compares to the dangerously handsome Daniel Neville.

Daniel Neville, notorious rake and heir to the Marquis of Wolvington, is in need of a bride, but finding a lady who’s willing to accept his past, is an entirely different matter. When he spies a stunning woman across the ballroom, Daniel believes he’s found her…until scandal erupts around them. How can he convince Rebecca to take a chance on him…and on the love that could be theirs forever after?

When I was a child, I used to love playing whist with my family, so when I started writing the gambling scene at Riley’s and had to decide what game the characters should play, the answer was easy enough although the scene I wrote is more accurately based on a game of bridge I recently played with a no-trump hand.

As in The Trouble With Being A Duke, daffodils are very prevalent throughout. This isn’t just because of the time of year in which the story takes place, but because daffodils are one of my favorite flowers.

The watercolors I envisioned Rebecca painting are inspired by Cicely Mary Barker’s Flower Fairy books which were originally printed in the 1920’s. A friend of mine had a new edition of one of these books when I was a child and the beautiful renderings within left a lasting impression.

The exterior of Roselyn Castle is based on Knockbrex Castle, located in southern Scotland.
