Tight Laced by Roxy Soulé: Book Blast with Excerpt





TIGHT LACED
by Roxy Soulé

BLURB:

Roxy Soulé’s debut Dragon Duchess series explores the spicier side of late Victorian England, and centers around a family of headstrong, sexpositive women who defy period stereotypes.

Oh, yes, there are Alpha Dukes aplenty, and a bevy of villains who continually torment and thwart, but at the end of the day, these heroines create their own Happily Ever After, sometimes with their lovers and sometimes despite them.

These rather short, hot books may be a bit bold for the tame reader, but if you like your stories with heat and heart – with a bit of sass, humor and spark – perhaps you will enjoy these.

TIGHT LACED (Book One of the Dragon Duchess series) releases August 11th!

EXCERPT

Lady Lacilia found herself in her chambers before she realized that she still clutched the duke’s handkerchief in the palm of her hand.

She lay upon her bed, her head pounding from weeping. She brought the square of cloth to her face, and gently wiped her eyes, and then drew it down her face, pausing at her nose. The smell was something new. The scent of deep forests. Tree bark after heavy rain.

Lacy closed her eyes and drew in a lungful of air. The duke’s scent played with her, tickled her, like a vague memory of some delicious confection she couldn’t quite name.

The tall, brusque duke had offended her, certainly, but when he’d placed his arm round her shoulder – a drunken gesture, but a comfort none-the-less – she’d felt the floor beneath her feet more solidly than she had since learning of her father’s death.

The man had such audacity, however. Coming here the way he did and enjoying spirits in the receiving room before leisurely nodding off. Most improper, really.

And at this very moment, two floors below, her stepmother and half-sister were filling his mind with who knew what. Lacy imagined they were maligning her:

Please excuse the Lady Lacilia. She’s quite mad. We generally keep her locked away!
