Lonesome Lily Turned Scandalous Siren
Miss Lillian Hargrove has lived much of her life alone in a gilded cage, longing for love and companionship. When an artist offers her pretty promises and begs her to pose for a scandalous portrait, Lily doesn't hesitate...until the lying libertine leaves her in disgrace. With the painting now public, Lily has no choice but to turn to the one man who might save her from ruin.

Highland Devil turned Halfhearted Duke
The Duke of Warnick loathes all things English, none more so than the aristocracy. It does not matter that the imposing Scotsman has inherited one of the most venerable dukedoms in Britain—he wants nothing to do with it, especially when he discovers that the unwanted title comes with a troublesome ward, one who is far too old and far too beautiful to be his problem.

Tartan Comes to Town
Warnick arrives in London with a single goal: get the chit married and see her become someone else's problem, then return to a normal, quiet life in Scotland. It's the perfect plan, until Lily declares she'll only marry for love...and the Scot finds that there is one thing in England he likes far too much...




Teaser...


"We leave now," Alec growled, ignoring Sesily, and Lily knew better than to argue with the glittering anger in his brown eyes, or the firm set of his square jaw.
Sesily leaned in to kiss Lily on her check, and took the moment to whisper, "Be careful.  In my experience, men who look like that are ready for one of two things: kissing or killing.  And he's already attempted the latter." (page 161)

He's adorable really.  Alec.  He decked a total jerk in defense of Lily.  I loved him at that moment.  And if you want to know about the kissing part, come back on Thursday for the swoon post.


That's our teaser for this week! What do you think? Do you have a teaser to share? Leave us a comment and link us up!
