To Lure a Lord
Book 2 in the Just a Touch of Scandal Series
She must find a husband quickly or be forced into an arranged marriage. But can the man trying to scuttle her efforts be the answer to her prayers?
The London season is a ticking clock for Augusta Eastleigh. With her mother’s help, she has a marriage prospect she hopes will satisfy her grandfather, the Earl of Forebridge. But Lord Blair MacDonald, recently returned to London, does not look kindly on her efforts to snare his friend. Nor does he hesitate to make his views known about Augusta and the rumors surrounding her birth.
Blair has more than one reason to dislike the girl. With his older brother Hamish critically wounded while fighting on the Peninsula, and his eldest brother refusing to marry, the Marquess of Rutherglen has decided his third son will be the one to carry on the family line. Which means he needs to marry. Now. The girl his father has chosen for Blair? None other than Augusta Eastleigh.
The situation pleases neither of them. But with the heads of the families set on the match, can they find common ground together, or will they face an unhappy future?
Praise For To Lure a Lord
"What a witty and fun book to read. The humor this tale was written with was great the interaction between the characters was grand it was plain and simply a wonderful book to spend time with.”
"It is a full on comedy of manners set in the early 19th century, with strategy and counter-strategy, layers of appearances versus behaviours, motivations versus actions, plus reputations, rivals and rumours all thrown into the mix. And then there is the range of love, worry, threats and manipulation within the two main families themselves!”
"If you love historical romance with lots of wit and well-written characters, then this is definitely the book for you! The characters were well-written and I loved their personalities and the banter was witty and fun. Their romance was sweet and swoonworthy.”
