A singly lady’s guide to a Romantic Valentine’s Day
This Valentine’s day, do you dare to take the advice of a particularly adventurous single lady? Not just any one, either—Miss Susannah Grey, heroine of Seducing the Single Lady, a Regency novella inspired by the songs of Beyoncé. She’s a fashionable flirt with all of London at her fingertips, until her long-lost, presumed dead fiancé returns determined to wed her. Here are her tips for a scandalously romantic day:
Dress in your most fabulous frock—you never know whom you might encounter.
When given the opportunity…
Exchange said frock for boy’s clothes—everything from boots and breeches to cravat and coat—for a day of utterly scandalous behavior including riding astride and dining in a tavern. I shan’t even mention what happens with the tavern maid.
Forget your inhibitions…
Leave all clothes on the floor of that rogue for an afternoon of making love. As one does.
It’s bound to happen…
A girl will probably fall in love when she least expects it, with the last man she expects.
For the rogues…
Make your intentions clear with sentimental and personal gifts (Which is how a child’s tea set can, oddly, be the most romantic gift ever). Also, dear Regency rogues, do say it with flowers, too.
For all the single ladies…
Just say yes when he proposes!
She’s a single lady….
Miss Susannah Grey could have any man she wanted now that she’s beautiful, rich and finally free to encourage suitors after the death of the man to whom she’s been betrothed since birth–and who fled to the continent rather than marry the girl he once described as a “scrappy brat.”
He’s a “reformed” rogue…
Or rather, he’s trying to be. After nearly a decade of debauchery, Damien Rhys Redmayne, Viscount Bedford, has returned from the continent, thus dispelling rumors of his death. He’s determined to be the dignified son his father never had, starting with marriage to the bride he left behind.
They’re crazy in love…
Damien woos Susannah with a day of scandalous adventures–and happily discovers that she is one naughty girl. But when news of his foolish wager hit the gossip columns, all seems lost. Damien’s only hope is to destroy the one thing binding them together and hope his broken-hearted girl believes he’s irreplaceable.
