Here is a hook from my newest book with Blushing Books.
“She’s far too innocent for you, old friend,” Blaine countered, facing James once more, and then smiling gently at Abigail.
Too innocent! Abigail huffed in irritation. Even if she was quite inexperienced with men, she didn’t need her brother-in-law guarding her. But then, her father and brothers were just as bad. Because of them and their over-protectiveness she’d barely been kissed.
James took a second to move his gaze slowly over her again, making her fight down the need to fidget. His appraisal was bold and daring. What did he see? How did she compare to other women he’d…
Lady Abigail Remington is tired of being the “perfect lady” and longs to test her adventurous side. She doesn’t want to be tied down in marriage to a demanding man. James Ranborne, the Earl of Saliston, is brash, bold, and uncommonly handsome. She wants nothing to do with him…yet he offers her all that she needs: a husband her family insists upon, freedom to do as she wishes, and no need to waste time loving him.
A widower, James has no time or desire for love and romance, but his position as an important noble demands he marry again. He must have a proper lady beside him at society events and he needs an heir. Abigail appears to fit his requirements as being acceptable to the ton and she is beyond pretty. She doesn’t want marriage, thinking she could live happily as a spinster, something her father would never allow. His proposal of a marriage of convenience, with minor commitments on her side, should be more than suitable for both their needs.
