Blog Tour: Daring Miss Danvers/ Winning Miss Wakefield by Vivienne Lorret; Excerpt + Giveaway





Daring Miss Danvers (Wallflower Weddings #1)
Author: Vivienne Lorret
Publisher: Avon Impulse
Release Date: 6 May 2014

It's all fun and games … until someone falls in love.

Oliver Goswick, Viscount Rathburn, needs money—and soon. With time ticking away and his inheritance held hostage until he's properly wed, Rathburn's slim options point to a single solution: a faux engagement. In need of the perfect bride, he knows of only one candidate: his best friend's wallflower sister. The plan seems flawless, except for one problem … He can't help falling in love with her.

Poised, polished Emma Danvers knows nothing good can come of Rathburn's scheme. Spending the next two months engaged in a mock courtship is not what she'd imagined for her final season. Yet, charmed by his roguish ways and the inexplicable hammering he causes in her heart, she accepts his challenge.

For Emma, keeping the secret seemed easy when it was just a game … But as Rathburn begins to see past her reserved exterior to the passionate woman within, the risk of losing her heart becomes all too real.

Winning Miss Wakefield (Wallflower Weddings #2)
Author: Vivienne Lorret
Publisher: Avon Impulse
Release Date: 10 June 2014

She's got nothing left to lose …

With her fiancĂ© suddenly engaged to another and her reputation in tatters, Merribeth Wakefield needs a bold plan to reclaim her life. She must be brave. Confident. She must … kiss a rake? The suggestion is ludicrous! Yet when Merribeth finds herself alone with the dark and brooding Lord Knightswold, suddenly the plan doesn't seem so farfetched. So she does something she never thought she'd do—she kisses him.

But he has everything to gain …

The Marquess of Knightswold—Bane to most—has no use for the affections of women. Well, none lasting longer than a single night. A plot for revenge weighs heavy on his mind, leaving no room for romance. But then a shy, witty miss borrows a kiss from him in a darkened room, and everything he thought he knew about innocent debutantes vanishes along with her.

When a twist of fate brings Merribeth within Bane's grasp, he'll have to resist her charms—or risk losing everything—for the sake of his heart.

Excerpt

As if overtaking the parlor wasn’t enough, now her mother had to take her chaperone and use her as a model. Fond though she was of Maudette, Emma did not want her bust on the table in the center hall. Like Delaney’s calamity last Season, the cut direct her father had received years ago was a topic they’d vowed not to discuss. During her second Season, she’d lamented that if a gentleman were to show interest enough after learning of her abysmal dowry and her father’s disgrace, surely after meeting her parents, the question of insanity running in her family would take highest priority. “Third Season or not,” she said as she stabbed her needle through the petal-soft leather. “If my parents continue like this, I will never marry.” The sense of urgency that had plagued her of late returned like the threat of a storm on the horizon. If she didn’t find a well-grounded husband soon, she feared her own brand of madness would overtake her. Her friends, the best in the world, she was sure, gathered around her with a chorus of “never fears.” Yet, even then, she had her doubts.

About the Author

I fell in love with fairy tales and the romance behind happily ever after at a very young age. Like a lot of you, I tweaked the fables bit by bit in my imagination until they suited me perfectly. By the time I was eleven, a teacher encouraged me to start writing.

Throughout the years that followed, my teachers remained my most fervent supporters, giving me the tools I needed to continue my journey as a writer.

My husband and I have two teenage boys, who are heroes in their own right. For now, we live in a small Midwestern town near Lake Michigan…until a time in the future when a new adventure calls us to other shores.

I am currently working on my next novel, but I always enjoy hearing from my readers. Feel free to email me at vivienne@vivlorret.net
