Spotlight: Lady Harriette by P O Dixon + Giveaway!

Besides Austenesque literature, another favorite genre is Regency romance. P O Dixon gives readers the best of both of these worlds with her latest release, Lady Harriette. Lady Harriette has many features of a good Regency romance that I enjoy: secrets, misunderstandings, jealousy, plucky heroine, muscular hero, and hot passion! Stop by Two Centuries Beyond Pemberley for an excerpt from Lady Harriette. Want more? Then pick up your copy today or enter the giveaway for one of two copies!

Past is Prologue... After his father threatened to cut him off financially for what the Earl of Matlock deemed his son’s debauched, heedless way of life, Richard Fitzwilliam set his cap at young Lady Harriette Middleton. A second son whose habits of taste demanded he marry a woman of means, Richard’s sole intention was securing her dowry. Having entered her bedchamber under the cover of darkness, he set upon his course. He promised to court her, to win her heart, to marry her.

Lady Harriette, the only daughter of one of the wealthiest peers in England, never accustomed herself to accept 'no' for an answer. Richard meant to change all that. She likened his declaration to win her heart as more of a challenge than a promise. By the end of their whirlwind courtship, it was unclear who was pursuing who.

The Continuing Story Unfolds... Their hasty courtship and subsequent marriage notwithstanding, Richard finds himself deeply in love with his beautiful wife. However, having seduced his innocent young bride, a single question haunts him—does he truly deserve his happiness?

Her husband’s lack of fortune never concerned Lady Harriette— she loves him. Young, spirited, and beautiful, she has always enjoyed a charmed life. Suspicion soon rears its head, and Harriette’s questions go unanswered. Seeking explanations on her own is her only recourse. But does she uncover more than she bargained for?

Lady Harriette: Fitzwilliam’s Heart & Soul is a fast-paced, wonderfully engaging Regency romance. There’s all the passion one might expect of a worldly gentleman violently in love, along with enough mischief and intrigue to keep readers turning the pages.

    1. I agree, Nicole. We aren't given much about Colonel Fitzwilliam from Austen, so I enjoy it when authors take it upon themselves to give us more of his story. And I really enjoyed this one! :) I hope you do too! :)
