(Virtue #4)

The youngest of six sisters, Mercy Ackerly has known since thirteen what everyone else is about to learn: She’ll marry the elusive Duke of Blackthorne.

WORTH THE WAIT
It was love at first sight for thirteen-year-old Mercy Ackerly. The second she encountered the traveling Duke of Blackthorne, she fell in love…with his horses. And since Sebastian Tremaine was also perfect, they would someday be man and wife.

From the start, Sebastian has felt oddly protective of Mercy. Delightfully straightforward, the girl is everything honest and sweet, which is why he approved when his best friend married into the family—and then so did his other friends. But now Mercy’s all grown up. Now she’s facing the ton’s matchmaking mamas and their deceitful daughters, is joining a world he despises, be it the ballrooms and routs or the opulent crush. He would shield her if he could, would do anything but entangle his heart.

Sebastian will fight the inevitable for as long as he can. And then he’ll fight for it. Some matches are schemed for, some are arranged, and some have just been coming for a long, long time.

An Excerpt from Mercy:

It was now or never. He wouldn’t come to another ball, of that she was sure. And he definitely wasn’t going to pay a call on her at her sister’s townhouse. If he’d ever intended that, he’d have done so by now.

Before she could talk herself out of it, she gathered her courage, turned back around and blurted, “I love you.”

Sebastian’s eyes widened. Mercy took a step toward him and continued speaking before her temporary bravado could desert her. “I know you probably didn’t know that, which is why you haven’t come to see me since I’ve been in London, but I’m grown up now so there’s no need for me to wait any longer to tell you.” She laced her fingers together and brought them to her chest as if they could somehow calm the furious beating of her heart. “I’ve loved you since I opened my eyes in your coach when I was thirteen years old, and that love has never gone away. I know I’m young, but you really aren’t all that much older than me and…”

Mercy realized she was rambling and made herself stop talking. She bit her lip and chanced another glimpse of him up through her lashes. His golden eyes were soft, his expression serious. He gazed down at her, but she couldn’t tell at all what he was thinking.
About the Author:

Deneane Elise Clark is an historical romance novelist. Her published work includes the first three books in THE VIRTUE SERIES, a lighthearted romp through the ballrooms and bedrooms of Regency London. The books tell the love stories of the motherless Ackerly sisters, beginning with GRACE, continuing with the stories of FAITH and CHARITY, and will conclude with MERCY. Deneane's books have been published in the United States, Canada, the UK and Australia, and have been translated into several languages, including Dutch, Norwegian and Turkish.

Deneane grew up in New Orleans and misses it dreadfully. Currently, she resides near Charlotte,NC, but has also lived in the Northeast, the Midwest, and on the West Coast. She prefers mountains to beaches, cities to suburbs, and suburbs to rural areas, and would be perfectly content if she could just manage to convince the world to flip flop the working day so people slept during the day and worked at night.

Deneane loves interaction with her readers. You can friend and/or follow her on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. If you're not a fan of social media, she also writes a blog. And, although it sometimes takes a while, she makes every attempt to respond to all emails, messages and comments.

I'm a simple girl. I love to read in my spare time and do reviews the books I read. I also write, mostly songs/poems, though I'm not published. I love music and traveling. Sometimes, I wish I could live inside a book, having my own HEA. :)
