I got to looking at the Cover Contest winners and they were all pretty dresses. It got me to thinking about what I’d choose if I were on the cover. That’s today’s contest question. My choice would be a pencil skirt and great heels.

“Might I have a bite of your orange?” She didn’t meet his eyes, and Christian had the sense her question was some kind of test.
Women were the subject of many a campfire discussion among Wellington’s soldiers, and a point of rare agreement among men who drank, fought, swived, and killed daily: there was no understanding women. Not their minds, not their moods, not their passions or lack thereof. Christian was confident the French soldiers, the Dutch, the Russians, the Hessians, they all had the same discussions, and all came to the same conclusion.
“I am happy to share.” He held up a section, and she leaned over and took it between her teeth, as he had previously.
And she chewed tidily, sparing him a small, smug smile.
She was staying. That’s what her little demonstration was about. She wasn’t running off because of an awkward moment, wasn’t succumbing to matronly vapors, wasn’t flinching at the sound of distant cannon.
He offered her another section.
He’ll never be free…
Captured and tortured by the French, Christian Severn, Duke of Mercia, survives by vowing to take revenge on his tormentors. Before the duke can pursue his version of justice, Gillian, Countess of Greendale, reminds him that his small daughter has suffered much in his absence, and needs her papa desperately.
Until he surrenders his heart…
Gilly endured her difficult marriage by avoiding confrontation and keeping peace at any cost. Christian’s devotion to his daughter and his kindness toward Gilly give her hope that she could enjoy a future with him, for surely he of all men shares her loathing for violence in any form. Little does Gilly know, the battle for Christian’s heart is only beginning.
