Excerpt

 

Her name resonated in a deep voice; the sound more akin to the reverberation of a gong than spoken word. A thrill tickled down her spine.

Eyes forward, she met the gaze of her partner.

Oh.

If her shoulders sagged with disappointment, she hoped no one noticed. The gentleman who held the bit of paper with her name was a tidy sort of man. Average height, average build, short-cropped brown hair, staid expression, and, oh goodness, spectacles perched on the bridge of his nose. He was exactly the sort of gentleman she might expect to find at a writers’ retreat.

Leila sighed. It would be a long afternoon.

He took his counterpart’s measure. Her countenance spoke of someone who would rather be anywhere except by his side. The subtle assessment he made of her person was for scholarly purposes.

The length of her eyelashes suggested she was, how should he say, flighty. The straightness of her nose implied a confidence bordering on conceit. The fullness of her lips invited untoward attention. By a connoisseur of women, she would be considered a stunning beauty with her soulful brown eyes, sleek ebony hair, and bronze skin denoting a South Asian heritage, but all Jules recognized was the arrogance of her carriage. She would not be his preferred partner for a treasure hunt.

He sighed. It would be a long afternoon.

A Dare Too Far Blitz

 

A Dare Too Far cover

The Debutante Dares Series, Book Two

Historical Romance, Regency Romance,

 

Release Date: December 2, 2021

Publisher: WOLF Publishing

In this friends-to-lovers Regency romance by Charlie Lane, an independent lady and a cautious earl must do the most daring thing of all—fall in love.

 

A daring lady.

A caring earl.

And a Christmas house party that turns love into a dangerous game.

The Earl of Abbington is not a daring man.

Responsible for the care of an opium-addicted uncle, George’s life poses dangers to a bride that he’ll never risk. It’s why he avoided the independent and kind Lady Jane last year, despite her brother’s request he protect her during her season. His neglect no doubt led to Jane’s tattered reputation. In reparation, he’s sent pre-approved suitors to the house party to ensure she marries well, not to a man whose life is a nightmare.

Lady Jane is done being daring.

Her daring spirit ruined her reputation, her family’s social standing, and her brother’s marital prospects. But a Christmas house party attended by a coterie of willing suitors can put everything right. Plain of face and ordinary of intellect, Jane knows she’ll never find love. And she doesn’t want it anyway. Love is the most daring thing a woman can do, after all. Instead, she’ll develop a system to test her suitors and discover the best husband for a practical sort of marriage.

Jane needs George’s help choosing a husband, but George soon realizes he can’t give it without betraying his own heart. Together, they must find the courage to face the dangers of love or lose the love of a lifetime.

Daring the Duke

The Debutante Dares Series, Book One

Publisher: WOLF Publishing

 

In this Regency romance by Charlie Lane, a London season of scandalous dares forces a lady and her duke to see that perfect isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

A redheaded bluestocking in desperate need of a wealthy husband.

A handsome duke looking for the perfect duchess.

And a dare that shows that opposites may not only attract but can be so much more.

Lady Tabitha Hampton has the memory of an elephant. Her sharp brain locks everything away tight as a trunk in an attic. But this talent fails to help the twenty-seven-year-old bluestocking attract the attention of a single wealthy suitor. And she needs one. With three sisters of marriageable age, a sickly father, and a series of bad investments draining their dowries, Tabitha’s marriage could save or ruin her entire family.

The Duke of Collingford needs a wife, but not just any one will do. Arthur’s future duchess must be perfect in every way—fair of face, impeccable manners, with enough social influence to impact his parliamentary projects. When he joins the whirl of the London season, the duke finds an insufferable, redheaded wallflower instead.

Tabitha insists she can be the perfect duchess, if he’ll only give her the chance. Arthur agrees to test her abilities, but she tests his control. And one taste of her lips is enough to make him embrace chaos.

Opposites may attract, but can they cooperate? Or will they lose everything, including their hearts?
