Chasing the Other Tisdale
Jessica Jefferson
(Regency Blooms #3)

She’s the other sister…
Overshadowed by the beauty of her older sister, Lillian is better known as the other Tisdale; unremarkable and unsure how she will ever deliver on the promise of her family's name.

He’s a rake in need of reforming…
Will Colton leads a frivolous existence, embracing notoriety instead of managing his family’s fortune. Determined to forget his financial burden and his father’s growing resentment, he maintains a lifestyle dedicated to pleasure and self-indulgence. When Will is invited to the Tisdale estate for an extended holiday, he never expects to become friends with the forgettable Lillian. But when a family secret comes to light, he must choose between leaving London and protecting the honor of one woman or staying and risking the reputation of another.

Upon his return, Will finds the girl he left behind has come out of the shadows and into her own. Lillian’s finally the center of attention, and not all of it good. With his own reputation in tatters, can a reformed rake lure her out of the hands of London's bachelors and back into his own arms? Can he escape his past and reclaim her heart, or has he lost her forever?

An Exclusive Excerpt from Chasing the Other Tisdale:

This time, the voice was distinctly female and the name she mentioned sounded familiar.

Lilly leaned forward and hung her head over the branch. The couple in question were directly under her. She recognized the woman as being one of her mother’s guests who’d come for the week-long house party—Mrs. White, a young widow. And Mr. Colton …

Of course, how could she forget? Her brother, Thomas, had brought a few of his friends to participate in the week’s activities, one of them being the rakish Mr. Colton. She’d overheard some of the women gossiping about him before he’d arrived, and when she was introduced …

Well, it was easy to see what all the fuss had been about. He was devastatingly handsome—tall, with an athletic build and shaggy blond hair. And by the way he carried himself, Mr. Colton was well aware of the effect his appearance had on others. Even his clothing was impossibly perfect—not a single crease, spot, or wrinkle marred the fashionable man. She hadn’t seen him since their introduction, so naturally she’d just assumed he was making himself busy with exploration and the like.

And it looked as if her assumption had been correct.

Mr. Colton appeared to be quite busy with his thorough exploration of the ginger-haired woman he was currently groping.

He laughed. “You have no idea how wicked I can be, my peach.”

Lilly grimaced at the use of such a ridiculous term of endearment. Did he really believe women responded positively to being referred to as pieces of fruit? And of all the produce in which to be compared, he had the audacity to choose that one. Peaches were plump, round, squishy, and furry all over. Really, the sentiment made for a much better insult than a compliment.

Despite that, the woman giggled and pawed at his chest. Mr. Colton took the woman into his arms and began kissing her neck, then moved lower.

Lilly jolted back up.

She knew she should have made her presence known and left the two lovers alone to do whatever it was they were doing. It simply wasn’t acceptable for a young lady, any lady really, to be privy to such personal and completely inappropriate conversation … and everything else she was witnessing.

Yet she remained ever so quiet, perched atop the branch, thinking about what it was she was supposed to be doing.

Then she leaned over again to get a better look.
About the Author:

Jessica Jefferson makes her home in northern Indiana, or as she likes to think of it—almost Chicago.  She is heavily inspired by classic sweeping, historical romance novels, but aims to take those key emotional elements and inject a fresh blend of quick dialogue and comedy.
