How about something new? Like the start of a new series. This story, An Occasion To Sin, is a not an erotica. Surprise, I know. Yes, there's a bit of sex and a lot of wishful thinking but this is more about Victoria Sloane's journey from being an abused, trophy wife to finding her way in spite of several shocks
and revelations that may seem like curses. But in the end, maybe it's fate. Blessings instead of curses.
Here's the blurb:
On the night of the Weatherby Ball, a bad decision results in a passionate, anonymous encounter for Victoria Sloane. The ball has a reputation for being cursed. Had she stumbled into the trap? Within days, her secret rendezvous is exposed, her husband is dead and she is carrying the child of an unknown suitor.
Joseph Smythe-Wellesley is left to clean up the messy affairs of the Earl of Doncaster. He has put the night of strange, illicit passion behind him. He would never see the lovely creature again—whoever she was. The earl’s wife is difficult to understand and she is determined to protect the heritage of her unborn child. A child she claims is the next earl. Joseph has his doubts. He is also attracted to the strong willed and strangely vulnerable Victoria.
Some might say the death of her husband was a blessing not a curse, but that event is the least of her problems especially once she realizes she shares a secret with the honorable and determined solicitor.
