Teaser Tuesday Snippets

Welcome to Teaser Tuesday. Each Tuesday, I will post a snippet of a book from my personal bookshelf. Some books may be fiction. Some may be on the craft of writing. Here's today's selection.

"Let me up!"

"No, I don't think so," Richard said matter-of-factly. "I rather like you in this position. It definitely brings to my attention that there are--other ways to scare you away...and it keeps your teeth off of me."

Here's the Blurb:

Thrilled that her solicitors have finally freed her from a detested marriage contract to the Earl of Manford's son who abandoned her years ago, heiress Julia Miller is eager to husband hunt at her friend Georgina Malory's ball. Charmed by a masked Frenchman and his magical kiss, she can't help but pursue this mysterious man--until she makes a shocking discovery. The enticing and carefree "Jean Paul" is merely a persona for Richard Allen who fled England and his controlling father years ago, took to the high seas, and joined a band of treasure-hunting Caribbean pirates!

Now, to avoid falling into a ruthless nobleman's trap, Julia must enter unto a risky, intimate charade with a man she was once bound to wed but never believed she could love. With a little help from the lucky-in-live Malory family, will Richard and Julia discover in each other that perfect someone?

Do you have this one on your bookshelf?
