In honor of my new Regency historical, A Marriage of Inconvenience, which comes out April 11 from Carina Press, I'm posting the first six sentences:
“Marry you?” Lucy stared open-mouthed at her cousin Sebastian for a long moment before she remembered that she must always be ladylike and self-controlled. She closed her mouth and looked down at her clasped hands. She could not stop her heart from trying to gallop its way out of her chest, but she could and did force herself to breathe slowly and steadily.
This was the very thing she had always wanted most, the thing she would have dreamed of had she permitted herself dreams. It could not possibly be real.
