Desperate Measures
Claire Firth
(Regency Undone #2)
Lady Isabelle Pennington has been put off men for life. Married off by her family to an abusive man 35 years her senior, she is now widowed and virtually penniless. His debauched lifestyle and treatment of her has left her deeply scarred and vowing that never again will she allow other people to run her life.

Guy Montford has had one wife walk out on him and has no wish to enter the matrimonial stakes again. But when he and Isabelle are thrown together, he begins to see through her cold exterior and finds himself becoming obsessed by her aloof beauty despite himself.

To begin with Isabelle wants nothing to do with this imposing Duke who has dragged her into his life, but then to her shock she realises that he does not repulse her as her first husband had done. Indeed for the first time ever, she actually starts to enjoy the exquisite sensations he arouses in her.

Two damaged people intent on maintaining their independence. But both turn out to be highly passionate - and once passion flares it can be difficult to control!

An Excerpt from Desperate Measures:

She lifted her chin.  ‘I do not wish to fight you, Guy.  As my husband you can insist on exercising your marital rights, but if it is also your desire that I enjoy the act, then I am afraid you will be sadly disappointed.  I cannot see you altering my views on that.’

‘Maybe you are right Isabelle,’ he said softly, ‘But there can be no harm in me trying.’

Before she realised his intention, he bent down and placed his mouth lightly on hers.  There was no pressure, no seeking; his lips were cool and firm for the briefest of times, before he straightened up to take his leave.

‘Sleep well.  We depart for my mother’s tomorrow afternoon.  And remember Sophia and Ralph will be here for luncheon before that.  I daresay they are keen to see how we fare.’

She waited until the door had closed behind him before prostrating herself flat on the bed and looking up at the ceiling.  The sensation of his lips against hers lingered disturbingly even though it had been the mildest of kisses, and she touched her mouth questioningly with her fingers.  He disconcerted her.  In every way her new husband disconcerted her.  And she didn’t like it.

The Reluctant Bride (Regency Undone #1)
About the Author:

I’m a bit of a Jekyll and Hyde really - respectable crime/romantic suspense author by day and closet steamy romance writer by night! Both under different names of course - I couldn’t possibly let my children (and more importantly their spouses) see what I get up to between the covers. I’ve always loved writing and started off with M&B type romances in my twenties and early thirties, progressing to women’s fiction with a bit more bite after that. But I always loved the romance and in particular writing the sexy scenes, and so Claire Firth was born!

I live in Cambridgeshire, UK and seem to spend most of my time trying to successfully juggle my life - and failing pathetically. It’s a writer’s lot I think to be disorganised - that’s what I tell my husband anyway (who is completely the opposite to me). This lack of organisational skills does have one advantage however - it’s meant that I’ve become something of an expert at Crisis Management - mostly from personal experience as I lurch from one crisis to the next. I can’t ever imagine not writing - I write any time and any place - and when I’m not physically writing, I’m away with the fairies in my head, plotting. It’s a great life and I wouldn’t swap it for anything!
