Yet Noah is not the same man he once was. Ton gatherings are now insipid and foolish—that is, until Noah makes the acquaintance of a masked lady scandalously clad as a soldier. But after six years on the Marriage Mart, Miss Prudence Chapman is too outspoken, too plain, and too intelligent to have received an offer of marriage. Deciding she is most firmly on the shelf, Prue is determined to spend her last spring as a Season of Scandal and doing exactly as she pleases before retiring to life as a spinster, including engaging in a battle of wits and stolen kisses with a masked stranger…Assuming he is a stranger.

But wait… who is the handsome man behind that mask?


LOVERS AND MADMEN

ONE SIMPLE KISS
by Sabrina York

Sold off in marriage to a wealthy lord to save her family from penury, now-widowed Lady Rose de Vreis has no intention of marrying again. Why should she? She’s wealthy, free and, best of all, not required to attend to any man’s carnal needs. Not that she didn’t enjoy being married to Count Eddard de Vreis. Ed was a kind man, but the love she felt for him was hardly passionate. In fact, the thought of passion strikes her as ridiculous. When Liam Mackinnon returns to England to discover that Rose—the woman by whom he has measured all others—is available, he is determined to win her. When she confides she has no interest in marriage, or the physical falderal that goes with it, he knows he can change her mind. If only he can convince her to give him one simple kiss.

Book Tour & Giveaway ~ The Earl's Scandalous Wager by Wareeze Woodson

 

 


The Earl's Scandalous Wager
by Wareeze Woodson
Genre: Historical Romance with a twist of Suspense


Emily Riventon shook with terror. Certain he would be the victor, her stepbrother in his role of guardian had pledged her as collateral for his wager in a game of chance. With the deciding roll of the dice, the Earl of Lenbridge won the prize: her.

What would the future hold? Love as the mistress of this handsome gentleman, or duty as his wife?

Either way, her life was now in grave danger.




I write historical romance fiction novels set in the 1800s forward with a twist of suspense. All of my characters and stories that are portrayed in my books are fictitious. I am a native of Texas, but I have traveled throughout America and beyond. As a dreamer, I love to visit new places where I can imagine a heroine meeting a hero in a special way. I'm an avid reader of (all sorts) and I love to write.
I married my high school sweat-heart and after having raised three sons and one daughter, our love for each other remains unshaken. Now we enjoy our eight grandchildren. We can send them home, but we're always happy for their return.
Outside of my family activities, I sing with the Silver Belles at my church and hate to miss even one practice. The local chapter of RWA is also at the top of my list of pleasures. It keeps me grounded with craft and connected with other writers.
Most of all, I enjoy going fishing with my husband. Give me a pole and leave me alone to bask in the sun, listening to water gurgle along the riverbanks while allowing my mind to float away to some distant place. Ah! Perfect.
