The Accidental Viscountess
She needs to stop a feud before her family is the laughingstock of London—and her best chance lies with the son of her aunt’s nemesis.
Dorothea Hindley is supposed to help introduce her cousin to the Ton, not become entangled with eligible gentlemen far above a poor relation. But when an old feud heats up and threatens her efforts, Martin Drayton, Viscount Abernathy is the only person she can turn to for help.
Martin finds his mother’s obsession with social rivalries an irritation, until an unintended word sets the gossips buzzing. To protect the famiy’s reputation, he must put an end to this. Quickly. Enlisting Dorothea’s aid might not be the wisest course, but he knows she also stands to gain by a truce, no matter how temporary.
Their efforts go awry when they find themselves facing an undeniable attraction—and a scandal neither can afford. Caught in a marriage of convenience, can they get their families to stop feuding long enough to find a path to happiness?
What I’ve been working on is not exactly a new activity for me. I’ve played with Photoshop a fair amount of the years — but the operative word here is “play.” The last few months, I’ve been doing some serious study to learn how to manipulate the program. How does it help my writing? Well, it doesn’t. At least not directly. It does give me a chance to do something creative that isn’t my book, which means it helps me refill the well somewhat.
