Meet Lady Ambrosia Anaconda Algonquin, matchmaker to London’s most discerning citizens. Part fairy godmother, part sorting hat, her methods might be unusual, but she always makes her match.
For Lady Tempest Tapoate, marriage means an end to the tyranny of the aunt and uncle into whose care she was forced when her parents died. She would rather have a stranger select her spouse than allow those two sods to select a husband for her.
James Harley, the Earl of Knox, is in need of an heir. He has righted the family fortunes after mismanagement by his mother and is now in need of a wife to bear a child. Once the deed is done, he expects the two of them will go their separate ways.
When Tempest finds herself with child, rather than share the good news with her husband so that they may each move on with their lives, she realizes that she does not want to be set aside by her spouse. But how long can she keep her secret?
Publisher’s Note: This standalone Regency romance contains power exchange, domestic discipline, explicit themes and more than a few laugh out loud moments. If you do not like a bit of tongue in cheek with your romance, please do not buy this book.
A note from the Author
Lady Ambrosia Anaconda Algonquin is London’s matchmaker to the most discerning…or most difficult…unmarried people of high society. Her methods might be unconventional, but she always makes her match.
I love the arranged marriage trope: put two people into a marriage and see if they can make it work. Of course in my books, they always find their way to love, but not without a few bumps…and swats…along the way.
Add in the many rules of Regency era society and it has all the makings of a fun and exciting book. I hope you enjoy His Tempestuous Bride.
In case you need a little help getting into the spirit of English society two hundred years ago, here are a few Regency era slang terms to help you. See if you can use them in conversation sometime soon.
Fit of the blue devils: sad, depressed, feeling low
Knocked-up: exhausted (this one has changed quite a lot, hasn’t it?)
Bang up to the knocker: first rate; well dressed; the height of fashion
A diamond of the first water: A beautiful woman
A vulgar mushroom: a pushy, pretentious person with new money, gauche
Don’t be a wet goose. Read His Tempestuous Bride. It’s a bang up of a book.
