Day 24: Wicked Nights with a Proper Lady by Tiffany Clare


 

Welcome to day twenty-four of March SWEET Madness—a month long party to celebrate the upcoming release of my novel, SWEET MADNESS, available April 2, 2013.

 

Today’s featured author is the lovely Tiffany Clare. She writes fantastic Victorian era novels and her latest series is incredible exciting! It’s done in the vein of Dangerous Liaisons, in which four friends engage in a dangerous game of wagers and seduction in their pursuit of pleasure until one goes too far. Doesn’t that sound thrilling? Well, it is, and I’m featuring the first book in the series: WICKED NIGHTS WITH A PROPER LADY today. Enjoy!

 

More about the book:

 

WHEN LOVE IS AT STAKE

Leo Harrow, Earl of Barrington, is a regular subject of the scandal rags. Once an unrepentant pleasure seeker, he knows that young ladies are warned to look the other way when he enters a room. But when he comes face to face with a woman from his past—the one that got away—he will do anything to keep the rumors about him at bay. Or risk losing her forever…

ALL BETS ARE OFF

Genevieve Camden is no stranger to Leo’s seductive ways. Years ago she was fooled into believing that he cared about her…and now that he’s back on the ballroom floor, he appears to be making amends. But this time Genny knows better: A scoundrel never changes his stripes—not even one as charming and handsome as Leo. Unless maybe he’s been in love with her all along…?

In the captivating first installment of the Dangerous Rogues series, a seductive earl encounters an old flame and passion burns brighter—and more dangerously—than ever before…

Sweet Enemy

Beakers and ball gowns don't mix, so when lady chemist, Miss Liliana Claremont, goes undercover as a husband-hunter to investigate Lord Geoffrey Wentworth, the earl whose family she suspects murdered her father, romance isn't part of her formula. But it only takes one kiss to start a reaction she can't control...

Sweet Deception


Lady criminologist, Miss Emma Wallingford, unknowingly finds herself tangled up in the dangerous final mission of Lord Derick Aveline, a spy who also happens to be her long-lost first love. But when deception, however sweet, is the name of the game, no one can be trusted. And every love--and every life--is at risk.

Read the First Chapter HERE.

And don’t forget SWEET MADNESS, coming April 2, 2013!


There’s a fine line between love and insanity…

Ever since her husband’s sudden and tragic death, Lady Penelope Bridgeman has committed herself to studying the maladies of the mind, particularly treating traumatized soldiers of the Napoleonic Wars. It is this expertise that brings the Marquess of Bromwich’s family to her door.

Gabriel Devereaux’s unexpected and unpredictable episodes are unlike any Penelope has studied. The once proud soldier has been left shaken and withdrawn, but she manages to build a fragile trust between them. Strangely, Gabriel seems completely lucid when not in the grips of his mania, and in the calm between bouts, she is surprised by how much she is drawn to him.

Despite his own growing feelings, Gabriel knows that he is fit for no one, and is determined to keep Penelope away from his descent into madness. But even though she knows firsthand the folly of loving a broken man, Penelope cannot stop herself from trying to save him, no matter the cost.

  27. Hi Heather and Tiffany!

    Oh it's so much more fun to be an "improper" lady and at my age it's so much fun to shock people by speaking my mind and not worrying about it!

    I can still remember the day I informed my parents that I wssn't going to follow the path they had decided for my furniture and moved across the country instead to go to college, got my own apartment and worked full time going to college nights. Believe me that wasn't the "norm" back in the 1960's!

    Back then it was very "improper" for a young woman to live by herself and be self sufficient!

    So go for your dream and walk you're own path and you'll never look back and say "if only"!

  32. Hmmm I think on the outside, what everyone sees me as is proper...but people that are close to me probably see me as improper...especially my bf. :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. I'm both. At least that's what my husband said
