TO SEDUCE A SINNER by Elizabeth Hoyt

Jasper Renshaw, Viscount Vale, has a problem: he needs to marry and produce an heir to the title. All Jasper wants is to find a lady who will put up with him long enough to wed so he can retreat to his life of debauchery--a life that keeps the haunting memories of his past at bay. Knowing that Jasper is under pressure to marry, Melisande Flemming grasps her fate with both hands and volunteers to wed him. Although Jasper is initially only interested in producing an heir, he soon becomes entranced by his wife--prim and proper by day, wanton by night-- and vows to learn her secrets. Melissande, however, is determined to keep her husband at a distance. She has loved, and lost, before, and will do anything to keep him from learning her terrible weakness: she's secretly been in love with him for years. But to her chagrin, her husband pursues her, wooing her as if she were a paramour, not his lady wife. As Melissande and Jasper embark on a passionate game of cat and mouse, secrets from the past begin to resurface.... threatening to tear them asunder.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Elizabeth Hoyt


Elizabeth Hoyt lives in central Illinois with three untrained dogs, two angelic, but bickering children, and one long-suffering husband.

Well this is without the best/stupidest fun fact - OMG!!
At the beginning of TO SEDUCE A SINNER, Viscount Vale is thrown over for a curate. In today’s terms this would be like leaving Gerard Butler for the postman.
Please include me in your giveaway.
Thanks

Melisande wears a purple silk domino to a masked ball in TO SEDUCE A SINNER. A domino is an enveloping cape, usually with a hood and half-mask, worn to masquerades. Dominos were usually black but they could be made in any color.

I've never heard of a domino before.

I thought it was interesting about the dog, Sir Mouse and how terrier breeds were around back then, but hadn't quite been bred/raised into all the breeds we know now.

Please count me in!
