Sheffield cornered Sophia against the tree tucked in the dark recesses of the garden.

“Well, I suppose you will do.”

“Do for what?”

“The kiss I was promised.”

“I have not promised you a kiss.”

“No, you did not. However, your friend lured me into the garden to compromise her. Since she has broken our engagement to trifle with Wildeburg, I have been left abandoned. Therefore, because a kiss was promised, somebody must fulfill the bargain. So, that leaves you.”

“You are absurd, no gentleman would suggest such an offer was made.”

“I’m not feeling very gentlemanly at the moment, since Lady Sidney passed me over for a mere marquess. As her best friend, Sophia, it falls on to you to console me.”

They were hidden in the shadows. Sophia tried to sneak around him, but his body surrounded hers. She gasped as he bent his head to press his mouth to hers. They were warm as they coaxed her lips apart. Without realizing her actions, she wrapped her arms around his neck drawing him in closer to their kiss.

He only meant to scare her. But his bruised ego fought against the moral code of a gentleman and he'd threatened her with a kiss. If it were not for her interfering, he would still be engaged to Sidney Hartridge. Instead he was once again in the market for a bride. A kiss would warn her against trifling with his life.

He stood before her, raking his eyes over her appearance.

“Not what I expected, but it will do.”

  






What started as a research project soon became a scandal...

When her research leads her into her own inappropriate scandal, her father agrees to a wedding offer from one of her subjects. As her fiancΓ© blackmails her into a marriage she doesn’t desire, her research becomes exposed. Can Sidney avoid her own scandal with the one she most desires to kiss?

Noah Wildeburg started this season as any other by flirting with the sweet new debutantes. When he rescues a lady off the dance floor, he is unprepared for the emotions she stirs in his soul. As he pursues her, he realizes he must compete for her hand. As he charms her with tokens of affections and stolen kisses, he discovers she plays her own game.

I am the author of The Romancing the Spies & The Tricking the Scoundrel Series. When I am not writing, I am spending time with my family. I love reading books on lazy afternoons and late into the night. Anytime really. Married twenty-nine years to the love of my life, we have three wonderful children and two sweet grandbabies. Besides writing, I have always wanted to travel. In the last few years, we have gotten our passports stamped in England, Scotland, and Ireland. We are hoping to add Italy to the list soon. My debut novel is Rescued By the Captain.
