About the book:
The sweetest gift is the hardest to unwrap ...
Lady Victoria Allen-Hill never dreamed she’d be a widow at twenty-one -- let alone a virgin. Her father insists that she attend a matchmaking house party in the snow-covered seaside town of Pevensey in hopes she’ll find a suitable husband. But for Victoria, it’s an opportunity to indulge in a passionate affair -- and the handsome inventor she meets at the Christmas Eve masquerade ball may be just the man for the job ...
Lewis Noble is the cousin of London’s famed Redcake sisters, so it almost stands to reason that he’s just as irresistible as one of their sugar-iced pastries. Lewis catches the eye of every woman at the party -- but Victoria is the only one who catches his. He won’t be tied down in her father’s business, but watching other men court her amid a flurry of engagements ignites a jealousy he’s never felt before. A dose of honesty may be just the thing to mend their broken hearts -- for many holidays to come ...
"Before I realized it, the unusually strong and well-developed characters of The Kidnapped Bride had sneaked up on me and captured my full attention. This is one of the best shorter books I have ever read." -- Delle Jacobs, author of Lady Wicked
"A delightful, sexy glimpse into Victorian life and loving with two wonderfully non-traditional lovers." -- Jessa Slade, author of Dark Prince's Desire on His Wicked Smile
“You’re awfully young for an assignation,” Lewis said. “I must be a decade older than you.”
“I’m a widow. I’m allowed.”
“You are?” He held back a chuckle, though he had hardened enough to make clear thought difficult.
“I’ve been locked up in my father’s home for a year and a half.”
He thought he saw a muscle twitch just under her right eye. “It is not right, what happens to young widows,” he agreed.
“I’m lonely, Lewis. You’re a nice man, and so attractive.” Her fingers found their way up his other sleeve, so that she massaged the muscles of his biceps on both sides.
He hadn’t realized how sore those muscles were, after a day of wielding a wrench. Imagine what such talented hands could do with his neck, shoulders, and back. Then his gaze drifted to her bosom, which was not quite pressed against him, and he imagined what he could do with the rest of her.
“You are so young, Lady Allen-Hill. You might conceive a child.”
Her eyes gleamed. “I brought a rubber.”
He blinked. “You brought a what?”
“A condom,” she said patiently. “I understand that’s what everyone calls them. I’m a modern girl, you see. I thought ahead. I want a bit of fun, like anyone would at a house party. Isn’t that why you came?”
“I came to work on the submarine,” he said, his thoughts about a million miles away from the earl’s machine shop.
