Rushwood is a single English lord in possession of a great fortune who is in

In

apart?

Excerpt:
He
smiled. “Just say thank you, and we’ll call it even.”
For a
long moment, she stared at him, mouth agape, not sure if this was some sort of
British humor she didn’t understand. Well, she supposed it didn’t cost her
anything to give him what he wanted. “Thank you.”
His
smile widened. “I thought American girls were all about, uhm,” he paused, his
gaze sliding to her slightly parted lips, “…affectionate forms of
appreciation.”
Abby
exhaled. Did he really expect her to kiss him? Well, she wasn’t going to, no
matter how many times her gaze wandered to his mouth. “I don’t know you, and
you certainly don’t know me, Mr. —”
“Lord,”
he corrected her with the slightest conceited bow. “Lord Rushwood.”
She
resisted the urge to roll her eyes. “Pardon me. Lord Rushwood.”
“You
may still call me Edmund.”
This
time she brought her hands to her face, ready to let out a frustrated scream.
He didn’t move as she parted her fingers and peeked through them. Growing more
annoyed, she dropped her hands to her sides and squared her shoulders.
“I
have thanked you…Edmund, so I will not be wrapping my arms around your neck and
inviting you up for a night of, whatever you call it in England—”
“Rogering?
Shagging?”
She
closed her eyes and brought in a therapeutic breath. “Never mind,” she replied,
trying to extinguish the blush spreading like a wildfire into her face.
Author Bio:
I was
born in historical Appomattox, Virginia. After graduating from high school, I
joined the military and served five years in the active duty Army. After
leaving, I decided to go into the Ohio Air National Guard where I retired as a
Master Sergeant in 2011. In case you were wondering, I have never flown a
plane. After getting lost to the recruiter’s office, I was highly discouraged
from navigating one.
I
admit, I am an avid Jane Austen fan and try to incorporate her in my books, in
one way or another. This dream of writing, with Jane sometimes, is an exciting
adventure that may take me as far as the stars or as close as my computer. 
When
I’m not writing, I’m spending time with my husband and two boys, ages 12 and
10. Without their sacrifice and understanding, I would have never been able to
pursue my passion of writing or my accomplishment of becoming a published
author.
No
matter what I write and read, there ALWAYS has to be a happy ending.
