Happy Easter!! I’m continuing with excerpts from One Wicked Night but it is so hard to keep it down to just six sentences. Forgive me. This one is seven. We pick up where Lottie and Benedict are engaging in a little verbal foreplay over dinner but her last comments about his enjoyment of Town with his family (mother and sister) in tow has gotten his hackles up. Enjoy!

Lottie threw her head back and laughed. “Oh, you look ready to strangle me. Be calm, Benedict. I only enquire into my guest’s love life. They described your mother as youthful before we determined her identity. I do not care to interfere in known or clandestine attachments. I have no right to damage hearts.”

One Wicked Night
Benedict Abernathy, an untitled but wealthy gentleman visiting London, is heartily sick of his celibate existence. Determined to leave his shattered heart behind and move on with his life, he accepts an invitation for a night of debauchery in the arms of London’s infamous courtesan, Lottie Townsend.
Lady Charlotte Goodchild has fallen far from privilege and longs for one night of pleasure with the man she loves. But Benedict must be spared the truth of her ruin at all costs. Posing as Lottie Townsend, a notoriously discriminating courtesan and old friend, she hides her identity and invites Benedict to share the night of passion that fate denied them.
