WeWriWa #30 Excerpt…
A figure ran past his window, catching Daniel’s attention. When two more followed, running too, he grinned. Finally. Something exciting must be going on.
He rose and put his face closer to the dirty windowpane.
There seemed to be some sort of commotion taking place just out of sight.
A cheer rang out, reaching even the occupants inside the inn, who were on their feet and headed for the door the next moment. Daniel hurried to follow, his curiosity piqued, and eager for any event to enliven his stay.
A wall of people blocked his view of the ruckus in the narrow alleyway beside the inn. But over the din of noise, he heard a woman shouting in outrage. His smiled slipped. The sound of distress drew him farther into the melee.
The woman was incensed about something serious.
Daniel attempted to push his way to the front, not an easy feat at all since everyone wanted a closer look at what was going on, too.
“You can’t do this!”
“Oh, yes, I can,” a man answered. “Come along, gentlemen, don’t be shy. Who here needs a woman? She’s strong, healthy and has all her own teeth. How much will you offer for her?”
Thanks so much for reading my excerpt.
I’ll continue sharing more of this upcoming release in the coming weeks but don’t forget to visit the other authors taking part in WeWriWa, click the image below.
No Ordinary Lady
Distinguished Rogues #20
She’s nothing but a common thief…and her next target is the Earl of Scarsdale’s heart.
Orphaned as a child and left in her uncle’s care, Marian Trill has known only a life of crime. Criss-crossing the countryside, she aids her uncle and his small troupe of thieves in conning well-to-do travelers…until one handsome mark catches her eye. Marian has no business betraying her only family for this gentleman’s safety…just as she has no business following Danny all the way to his country estate to return a valuable ring he left behind.
Daniel, Earl of Scarsdale, is returning home after years of avoiding the inevitable—marrying his neighbor’s daughter. He’d hoped to wed for love, but having failed at that venture, it’s time he took his duties seriously, even if it means settling for a woman more to his mother’s liking than his own. He didn’t count on the beguiling thief he met on the road following him home—nor on his scheming granny inviting her to stay as her companion.
No Ordinary Lady is a steamy regency romance novel.
