Romance Historical

As children they’d sparred with play swords. She’d scarred his chin, and he broke her heart. Now, more than a decade later, the true battle was only beginning…

Daisy Drake needed Lucian Beaumont, Viscount Rutland. Tired of being labeled “on the shelf,” she craved adventure. And Lucian held all the clues to a long-buried Roman treasure. Surely her desire to join his search had nothing to do with his dark curls and seductive Italian accent. Too bad Lucian wanted no help from her—until she donned the disguise of an infamous French courtesan and promised to teach him all she knew about the pleasures of the bedchamber. Of course, she only knew what had been written in naughty books. But Daisy had always been a quick learner. And night by naked night, they’d discover tereasure neigheter expected to find.

Re: Vexing The Viscount

Hey Emily,
I've been too early a few times, but
this time, I'm a good day ahead of you!
I get the Fresh Fiction newsletter (also
just added yours), and happened to
spot your post here.

Since I already won your book, but
have been following you around like a
groupie, my comment can just be a
part of Jade Lee's Amazon contest.

(Julie Robinson 8:53pm February 11, 2009)

Emily, I just realized you didn't mention
the link to the Courtesan Club on your
website for any newbies.
Julie Robinson 9:02pm February 11, 2009)

I think this book sounds really interesting!
Virginia Hendricks 7:45am February 13, 2009)

I can't wait to see how Daisy pulls this off!
Lisa Freeman 8:51am February 13, 2009)

Thanks for the information on the difference between a courtesan and a prostitute.
I had also wondered how the women of days long ago stopped an unwanted pregnancy.
You have the EW! factor right about washing out those condoms. Double "EW!"
Gigi Hicks 10:15am February 13, 2009)

Hi Emily,
I am sad today:( my blog didnt post yesterday so, I feel bad if I crossed some sort of blog etiquette line. I would be horrified if I insulted someone some way. I know sometimes the blogs are sensored. But if so I apoligize sincerely! I agree with Gigi Double "EW!" Sometimes its funny in researching, we find things that are like "OMG! What were they thinking!" LOL! Have a great weekend everyone! P.S. By the way I met Jade Lee at RT last year she is a hoot!!!
Jane Lange 11:09am February 13, 2009)

Thanks for the insight. (I hope I win!).
Shannon Scott 11:36am February 13, 2009)

Interesting subject. Lucky day #13 - hope all have a great one.
Vikki Parman 11:42am February 13, 2009)

Hi Emily,

Vexing teh Viscount looks like an
awesome read! Thanks for blogging
Val Pearson 11:43am February 13, 2009)

Whenever I see courtesan, I think of fans of devotion to being irresistable to the opposite sex. Attention in the way of gifts and elevation up the ladder of class is the aim. A courtesan is always looking to be the first chair like in band and orchestrates a whole lot of action behind the scenes to position self in the right location with the right jewel in place.
Alyson Widen 11:55am February 13, 2009)

Thoroughly enjoyed your blog today and your "Club" link is on my favorites list.

Can't wait to read Daisy's and Lucian'story. Sounds super.

Everyone have a good Friday 13th and a warm, wonderful 14th!
Betty Cox 11:55am February 13, 2009)

Great research! I bet you had fun! This sounds like a great read!
Kelli Jo Calvert 11:56am February 13, 2009)

Roberta Harwell 12:51pm February 13, 2009)

Interesting research! The book also sounds good, perhaps Friday the 13th will be lucky...
Rachael Haas 1:03pm February 13, 2009)

Afshan Nawaz 1:16pm February 13, 2009)

Hi Emily: Thanks for adding the interesting background. I did wonder what they did with unwanted children in that line of work. What a fun story. I can't wait to read it.
Amy Alessio 1:29pm February 13, 2009)

Emily Bryan 7:10am February 14, 2009)

I love the title "Vexing the Viscount"!!!
Pamela Shockley 2:02pm February 14, 2009)

"Vexing the Viscount" has some of my favorite elements in a novel : a bright, intelligent heroine, a gorgeous hero, a search for antiquities, and witty dialogue. What a terrific combination!
Elaine Carlini-Davis 6:16pm February 14, 2009)

vexing the viscount sounds very interesting. the bit about the condoms, WOW and EW!! :)
Masoud Oskouilar 9:06am February 15, 2009)

The book sounds really good. And as for reusing condoms, I guess some protection is better than no protection.
