WeWriWa #32: No Ordinary Lady

Welcome and Happy Sunday. Each week I’ve been sharing 10 sentence snippets from my upcoming release, No Ordinary Lady, and it’s time for another post for WeWriWa blog hop post. I switched to my heroine’s (Marian Trill) POV last week and will continue for a few more weeks.

If you missed last week, you can find that post here. Enjoy!

WeWriWa #32 Excerpt…

“I would have thought with the way his valet carried on about the shabby state of the inn that his master would have carried more upon him.” Uncle pursed his lips and glanced over at Billy. “Are you sure this is all of it, boy?”

Billy nodded vigorously and inched toward Marian, so she spoke for him. “He never felt a thing.”

Beatrice chortled. “Maybe he enjoyed having a strange little boy hold on to him for so long. Maybe Billy should run back and try again.”

Billy leaned harder into her side, and Marian put her arm about him. Beatrice could be cruel toward Billy and Marian scowled at Beatrice. “Leave him be.”


Thanks so much for reading my excerpt.

WeWriWa #32
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.
