Effervescent bon vivant Lucy Eastlake is a young operetta
singer whose star is on the rise in Edwardian London. Though
struggling to maintain her beloved great-auntsâ€™ household,
she holds fast to the belief that â€śthings will work out.â€ť
Now, with the fiftieth anniversary of a siege her great-aunt
Lavinia lived through approaching, it looks like Lucy is
right, because a fortune is due to be divided among the
survivors. All Lucy and her great-aunts have to do is travel
to a small Pyrenees town to claim Laviniaâ€™s share of a
fabulous treasure in rubies. What could be more simple?
Professor Ptolemy Archibald Grant is the brilliant,
straitlaced grandson of a British lord who also withstood
the siege. When his grandfather asks him as a matter of
honor to escort his old love on the journey, the about-to-be
married professor agrees, not expecting Lucy to be part of
the bargain. Losing the great-aunts en route, the handsome,
buttoned-down professor finds himself caught up in Lucyâ€™s
quirky, bewildering, and probably illegal efforts to reunite
with them, as he is drawn further and further into an
inexplicable infatuation with the free-spirited singer. What
could be more complicated?
But when unwilling attraction gives way to sizzling passion,
both will be forced to confront the ages-old question of
whether love trumps honorâ€¦or the other way around.

Re: The Songbird's Seduction
My favorite type of hero is a man that is strong, yet can be
tender when he needs to be. He should be funny, handy to
have around, like animals, a bit spontaneous, and love
family. If I thought long enough, I'm sure I could come up
with more, but those are the main traits. The cover to your
book is absolutely stunning, and I'm looking forward to
reading it this coming Fall/Winter season!! Congratulations
on what I'm sure will have a big following!!
