WeWriWa #31: No Ordinary Lady

Welcome back to another post for WeWriWa blog hop. I’m again sharing snippets from my upcoming release. No Ordinary Lady is done, just waiting for the proof of the print edition, which I’ll be taking with me to the Australian Romance Readers Book Signing in March. I’m switching point of view to my heroine, Marian Trill, a kind-hearted thief who’s life is a bit more complicated than even she knows at this point. Surprises are coming for her, and for Scarsdale.

You can find the last post here. here. Enjoy!

WeWriWa #31 Excerpt…

“Did we get everything?” Marian asked as she joined the others after taking the long way to their camp so she couldn’t be followed. She glanced at the table and grinned. “Pocket watch, pearl-handled knife, and the rest of the coin he carried,” she noted with approval, dropping onto a log beside her uncle. But the second gold sovereign the fellow had given them was suspicious by its absence. But Marian knew better than to question her uncle about that. Uncle always put a bit aside for a rainy day.

“Yes, well done, everyone,” Uncle Crossman murmured as he pulled it all toward himself and began a careful inspection of each item. He tucked some away in his pockets, others were left out, but as he lifted the gold sovereign, his frown grew. “Was this really all he carried?”

WeWriWa #31


WeWriWa #31
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.
