Release day: Lady Lovett’s Little Dilemma
Today is the official release of Lady Lovett’s Little Dilemma by Beverley Oakley (ebook, Total-E-Bound). Here’s the blurb:
With rumours circulating that the kind, dashing and seemingly ever-patient Lord Lovett has returned to the arms of his former mistress, Cressida believes her choices are stark: welcome her husband back to the marital bed and risk a sixth pregnancy she fears will kill her, or lose him forever.
With the astonishing discovery that methods exist to enable the innocent Cressida to transform herself into the vixen of her husband’s dreams without expanding her nursery, she seeks to repay the woman responsible for her empowerment … only to discover her unlikely benefactress was, and perhaps still is, her husband’s mistress.
Beverley dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:
My last story featured a fiery, feisty heroine so this time it was fun to write about a sweet, passive, happily married heroine. As was normal 200 years ago, Cressida is not equipped with the vocabulary or knowledge to begin to explain that while she wants to continue her loving relationship with her husband she can’t bear to be intimate when she knows the consequences may well be another pregnancy. Therefore, when her awful, jealous, bullying cousin tells her that her hitherto faithful, adoring Justin has returned to the arms of his former mistress, Cressida believes it’s her fault. When she stumbles upon the means to please both her husband and herself, she inadvertently stumbles upon a 20-year-old mystery. It’s now that she uses her sweet nature – and hidden determination – to secure someone else’s happy ending. By the end, Cressida has proved she doesn’t have to change her sweet and gentle nature to get what she wants – and that she has surprising depths of courage, daring and spontaneity.
