Six Sunday #23: In the Widow’s Bed

Welcome back for the final excerpt from In the Widow’s Bed, my regency cougar romance and my last Six Sunday for a little while. I need to finish up my current wip so no distractions for June. Apologies too for not reciprocating on everyone’s posts last Sunday. An injury kept me offline all of this past week. All better now — thank goodness.

In this scene, its the morning after the big scandalous night and poor Jonathon is battling his memories of the evening. Enjoy.

Lady Jocelyn sat across from him, daintily eating her breakfast and sipping her tea. But she had stretched out her leg and was currently running her toe up and down his trouser in a brazen flirtation.

However, what aroused Jonathan was Lady Warminster’s presence across the room, fixing herself a heaped plate of food. He could usually bear the sight of her without reaction, but today her smile tortured him. She looked smugly happy, content and, given the way her lips lifted for no obvious reason, he wondered if she was thinking of last night.

Jonathan tucked his legs under his chair, turned the page, and tried to concentrate on the goings on in parliament that he’d missed during the recent sessions.

A spill of light brightened the chamber briefly, and she caught sight of a tall form entering her room. The floorboards groaned as he came closer, fabric slithered in the dark, and then the foot of the bed dipped.

“Enchantée, ma belle.”

A Frenchman? Phoebe wracked her brain for his identity. There had been none on Warminster’s list that she could remember and she inched up the bed.
