Christi Caldwell | Always a Rogue, Forever Her Love
September 17, 2014
Love historical romance? Check out this excerpt from Christi
Caldwell's latest installment in her Scandalous
Season series, ALWAYS A ROGUE, FOREVER HER LOVE!
Over the years heâ€™d become a rather apt read of character. It had
saved him from title-grasping misses attempting to trap him into marriage for no
other reason than their desire for the title of countess. The lovely, if defiant
Miss Marshville had affected a rather masterful showing of antipathy where he
Jonathan leaned ever-closer so a mere breadth of a hand separated them and
lowered his head toward hers. â€śPerhaps I should be more direct, Miss Marshville.
Iâ€™d not have kissed you, unless you wanted it.â€ť
Her mouth opened and closed like a poor trout just snagged from his well-stocked
lakes. The spirited Miss Marshville might condescend to him with her very eyes
and the subtle nuances of her speech, but her heightened color told an entirely
different story. One that told her bodyâ€™s awareness of him.
Ahh, you are not as indifferent toward me as youâ€™d have me believe, sweet. He
lowered his voice to a near whisper. â€śAnd you may be assured, Miss Marshville,
you would want it.â€ť He trailed his eyes over her face. â€śI would kiss the proper
from you. I would kiss the frown from your lips. Kiss you until your knees
knocked together with weakness and your hands,â€ť he snared one of those hands in
his and raised the trembling fingers to his lips. Her mouth quivered, as he
kissed the tips of her middle three fingers. â€śAnd your hands would not be
capable of anything but twining about my neck, with your desire for more.â€ť His
gaze fell to the creamy white skin of her neck, to where the pulse throbbed
â€śY-you are wrong,â€ť she whispered.
Her hand still delicately clasped in his, Jonathan moved the tip of her fingers
to that hard, pounding just below her jawbone. â€śPerhaps I am. But I donâ€™t think
so.â€ť He released her suddenly and she sat there at the edge of her seat blinking
wildly up at him.

Miss Juliet Marshville is spitting mad. With one guardian missing, and the other
singularly uninterested in her fate, she is at the mercy of her wastrel brother
who loses her beloved childhood home to a man known as Sin. Determined to
reclaim control of Rosecliff Cottage and her own fate, Juliet arranges a meeting
with the notorious rogue and demands the return of her property.
Jonathan Tidemore, 5th Earl of Sinclair, known to the ton as Sin, is
exceptionally lucky in life and at the gaming tables. He has just one problem.
Wellâ€¦four, really. His incorrigible sisters have driven off yet another
governess. This time, however, his mother demands he find an appropriate
When Miss Juliet Marshville boldly demands the return of her precious cottage,
he takes advantage of his sudden good fortune and puts an offer to her; turn his
sisters into proper English ladies, and heâ€™ll return Rosecliff Cottage to
Jonathan comes to appreciate Julietâ€™s spirit, courage, and clever wit, and
decides to claim the fiery beauty as his mistress. Juliet, however, will be
mistress for no man. Nor could she ever love a man who callously stole her home
in a game of cards. As Jonathan begins to see Juliet as more than a spirited
beauty to warm his bed, he realizes she could be a lady he could love the rest
of his life, if only he can convince the proud Juliet that he's worthy of her
hand and heart.

The excerpt you provided left me wanting more!!! The cover
of your book is exceptional - I loved the dress the woman is
wearing on the cover!! The ruffles are so beautiful!! I've
always been taken in for ruffles, but never had a dress like
that. This is one book I know that I can curl up with, and
truly enjoy. The synopsis is very good, and I love how it's
going to play out!! Congratulations on what I'm sure will
