Publisher: Blushing Books
Alisa ‘s parents are gone and their English friends have graciously offered to take her in, in fulfillment of a promise made years ago. Their son, however, is less than thrilled at the idea of the young American orphan girl moving in and living off his family’s money.
Bram, formally known as Lord Belden, makes his feelings known from the start, and Alisa vows to marry the first man who offers for her hand just to be out from under his constant scrutiny.
One night changes everything, though. Bram decides that discipline is in order for the errant young spitfire, and things go a little too far. He will do the right thing and make her his wife, much to the delight of his parents. But can Alisa ever be happy with the man who seems to distrust her so much? Or are his feelings for her softening more than he cares to admit?

“I don’t need to be seen by the doctor!” she hissed up at him.“Yes, you do,” he returned implacably. At the pace he was going, they were going to beat everyone, including the physician, to her room.Bram motioned for a hall boy to follow them in and left the door open behind him, too, for propriety’s sake, as he leaned down to arrange several pillows against the headboard before gently placing her there in an upright position.“Thank you, Lord Belden.”He almost grinned down at her, as much as he didn’t want to. “You’re welcome, Miss Thurgood.”“But I still don’t want to see the doctor. There’s no need for the fuss—or the expense. I don’t want to be a bother. I’m embarrassed enough as it is to have done this—and on my first night here, too. What must your parents think of me?”At that, Bram leaned down so that he knew she would be the only person who heard what he whispered, in a tone that brooked no disobedience. “You are going to be examined by the good doctor if I have to hold you down on the bed, myself, in order for him to do so.”

He hummed and began to prepare a new drink for her, a drink, she noted, that included a very healthy helping of alcohol. A minute later, he slid the freshly prepared Cosmo toward her with a wink.“Thank you,” she said with a blush as she raised the glass to her lips and took a hasty sip. “It’s delicious.”“Not as delicious as I suspect you are, baby girl.”Her eyes widened at that. “Excuse me?” She coughed, trying to make sure she had heard the man right. “What did you say?”“I said,” he leaned closer to her, his eyes dropping to her lips, “that drink doesn’t look nearly as good as you do.”“Oh.”His smile broadened. “Oh.”“Thank you.” Ashley demurred when she wasn’t sure of what else to say. Her words only seemed to make the man’s eyes darken with lust.“You have manners,” he observed.She shrugged, looking down at the drink she was holding. “My daddy taught me to say thank you.” The words slipped from her mouth before she was even aware she was blurting them out. She went red at the admission and fiddled with her drink.“You learned that lesson real good, sweet girl.”

“Hey, pretty lady, how was your morning?” he asked as he opened the door for her.She smiled up at him as she pushed her shoulder length hair out of her face. The New York wind was strong that day.They were lucky enough to find an empty table and quickly grabbed it. After ordering drinks, she took a deep breath. “You asked about my morning. It was very eventful. There was a disagreement about a book cover, tons of emails to answer, and one very disturbing letter.”He gave her a quizzical look as she took Caroline’s letter out of her bag and handed it to him, her hand brushing his slightly in the exchange. “Cody, I’m really beginning to understand why you’re so concerned about Caroline’s state of mind these days. Have you spoken to her counselor lately?””What’s this?” he asked as he took the envelope from her and looked at the handwriting. “Caroline wrote you a letter?””Read it. If that’s not a cry for help, I don’t know what is. That poor child is hurting, Cody. She’s determined to take care of her sister and her brothers and to care for you and run the household, without help from anyone. She’s sixteen years old. She needs to enjoy her teen years.””She doesn’t want me to see anyone, is that what she said?” he asked. “She is worried that you’re trying to take her mother’s place in our lives, is that it?””I’m afraid so. It’s understandable. Even though we are friends, she is afraid it will develop into more.””What do you suggest we do about it?” he asked.”I think the question needs to be, what are you going to do? In my opinion, and I don’t know much about children, let alone teenagers, you need to make an appointment to speak with her counselor. I know you said all four kids are in grief therapy. Caroline is the oldest; she seems to be having the hardest time dealing with everything.””Camille, I want you in my life. Now that I’ve found you again, I don’t want to lose you.”She took a deep breath before answering him. “Cody, I treasure our newfound friendship too. Right now, though, your four babies should be your top priority. I know having an adult to talk to is important, but focus on the kids. There will be time for us. I’m not going anywhere.””Promise?” he asked as the waitress returned to take their food order.When the girl had gone to put in the order for their lunch, Camille said quietly, “I promise.”His hand reached across the table to touch hers briefly. Funny, how neither of them thought of another promise made, years ago, at that same table.
