So browse around and check it out!
In honor of the March UK release of ROGUE’S LADY, I’ve added to the ROGUE’S LADY bookshelf an “extra” chapter written for the now-defunct Amazon Short program. Entitled “The Rogue Entices,” this episode, available for the first time, takes Will and Allegra on a visit to Astley’s Amphitheatre, a famous entertainment venue founded by a former cavalry man that featured dazzling displays of equestrian skill. While Will and Allegra watch the horsemanship under the eye of Allegra’s chaperone, both try to ignore the budding friendship that enhances their physical attraction and remind themselves they each need to concentrate on trying to make respectable marriages—to someone else. Enjoy!
