Just One of Those Flings

Beatrice, Lady Somerfield, is too busy acting as chaperone for her headstrong niece to take her friends' advice to find a lover. Maybe next year, she thinks. Until one night at a masquerade ball when a dark stranger makes her realize what she's been missing.

When she finally discovers his identity as the Marquess of Thayne, the very man she has practically been pushing into her niece's arms as the Catch of the Season, Beatrice is horrified. But Thayne is thoroughly captivated by Beatrice, and finds himself increasingly drawn to the beautiful, sensual, more mature and sophisticated Lady Somerfield, and soon discovers he wants more than a love affair. Beatrice, however, has vowed never to marry again. But when their private fling leads to public scandal, more than one life is turned upside down.

Hern's next novel is out in less than a month...wow..first the Long's ARC, now Hern's new book and then the long awaited vacation...looks like I'm in for a treat for the next few weeks. Check out the excerpt....the words SEXY and HOTTTTTTT don't do it justice.

I like the look of that excerpt. Sounds like it's going to be one helluva read... :)

I know this one sounds pretty sexy. The fact that it's out in a few weeks make it even better.

Thanks for the free promo, Romancelover! I'm glad the teaser actually teased you! :-) This truly is the sexiest book I've ever written, though it's nowhere close to some of the erotica written these days. For ME, though, who started out writing sweet traditional Regencies, it was pretty sexy. But when the story is about a love affair, I figured there had to be a few love scenes. There are actually 4 1/2. The first one happens in chapter 2, right before the excerpt on my website. (The 1/2 scene takes place in a carriage. 'Nuf said.)

Tha on-sale date for FLINGS is August 1. I'll be at the West Portal Waldenbooks books again, Romancelover, this time on Friday August 4 from 4:00pm to 6:00pm. A weird time, but the manager said it was a busy time for them. Hope to see you there!
