Today's snippet is from my latest, Lord Rakehell's Love. It's the novella that commences The Curse of True Love series, where Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love, tries her hand at playing matchmaker in Regency London. Unfortunately, it doesn't go smoothly.
The hero, Simon, is trying to figure out how to win back Georgiana, who left him at the altar when he was late to their wedding. Oh, and he was also accompanied by his best friend Hugh's ladies-of-the-evening. In this snippet, Hugh, also known as Lord Wastrel, is giving advice to Simon on how to win Georgiana's favor:
"I have it on good authority that females find it quite enticing when a man grovels with his heart in hand."
Simon was not convinced this was the manner in which to prove his love to Georgiana. He had made similar protestations at their wedding, but to no avail. He had sent flowers to her home each day, along with heartfelt letters begging her forgiveness.
Every single bloom and missive had been returned without a reply.
"I have good reason to doubt the success of your plan," Simon admitted.
"You doubt me--after all I have done to earn the title Lord Wastrel?"
"Perhaps I would have fewer doubts if you were named Lord Wedded Bliss."
Thanks to all the Weekend Writing Warriors for stopping by! I'm excited to read your snippets this week.
