From USA Today Bestselling Author, Bronwen Evans comes her new Sisterhood of Scandal series. A group of ladies whose friendship is based on ensuring they can take on the world dominated by their men folk. No male relative is going to choose their destinies.
Blurb: Shhh. Blue Stocking Miss Tiffany Deveraux has a secret. The poor orphan is not so poor. But she does not want that information to become common knowledge. Being a plain Jane, any hint of money would just bring fortune hunters to her door. No. In society’s eyes she will remain the poor orphaned ward of the Earl of Marlowe. Only then will she ensure the man who eventually professes his love for her is genuine.
Lord Slade Ware, the Marquess of Wolfarth also has a secret. He’s a renowned investment guru with everything he touches turning to gold. Or is he? Society may think so, but mostly his investments have been blind luck, and he’s pretty sure his luck is about to run out. Help comes in the form of his best friend’s ward. He’s learned Miss Tiffany Deveraux’s secret. She’s an investment guru who has accumulated a considerable sum. Marriage would seem a sensible option with so many dependents relying on him. But what’s a man to do when the one thing a woman wants isn’t his looks, title or money—it’s his heart and Wolfarth’s heart is shattered beyond repair.
Tiffany’s reward for her bravery was the stunned look on Wolf’s face as she made her way across the grass to where his easel sat waiting. His eyes darkened with heat as he watched her approach. She could see a pile of fur rugs and cushions under the tree.
“You look beautiful,” Wolf said as he bowed low and pressed a kiss to her gloved hand. “But we will have these off,” and he began to tug at the ends of her gloves. She tried to stop him but he gathered both her wrists in one large hand and said softly, “I know what I am doing. Can you trust the painter in me?”
Tiffany nodded, and he finished sliding the gloves from her hands just as his mother arrived. “You look lovely in that gown, my dear.” Lady Wolfarth settled into a large chair and took out her crochet. “I hope the weather stays warm, at least until Wolf has enough of this painting done for us to venture back inside.”
Ivy and Claire sat next to Lady Wolfarth, watching Tiffany and Wolf as if they were at the theater.
Wolf led Tiffany to the rugs under the tree. “I want you to curl on your side and look as if you’re reading this book,” and he handed her a book that when she glanced at the cover made her knees almost buckle. Wolf merely winked. “Educational, I feel.”
Memoirs of a Woman of Pleasure by John Cleland. She glanced at Lady Wolfarth and then lay it down next to her on the rugs. Wolf had known she’d accept the book because he understood her very well. Her curiosity made it impossible to turn away.
But she’d hardly gotten over the shock of the book when Wolf’s hands went to her hair. “What do you think you are doing?”
“It’s rather obvious. I’m taking your hair down.” He had her hair unpinned and uncoiled within seconds, and it annoyed her because she realized he’d done this many times before. He ran his fingers through her hair, placing it about her shoulders. Once he was satisfied he stood back to admire his work.
“One more thing,” and he stepped forward again and removed her glasses and then casually opened the book to a page. “There. Now try to stay still. I need to get this beginning sketch done quickly before the light changes.”
Tiffany wondered how long she could lie still. Ivy and Claire were making the most unusual noises. Whispering and giggles were all she could hear and she couldn’t move to look at them.
