Royally Ever After.jpg

Two of my novellas from anthologies appear together in one eBook, with a beautiful new cover.

These stories were written to coincide with royal wedding events. When Avon invited me to write them, I was a little nervous, I admit. I hadn’t written any shorter tales in decades, and did remember it was tricky to compress a story into a fraction of the normal amount of words. So it was....

“Jessica, you are a pain in the arse, do you know that? If I were not so immensely fond of you, I should throw you out the window."

She wrapped her arms about his waist and laid her head against his chest. "Not merely 'fond,' but 'immensely fond.' Oh Dain, I do believe I shall swoon."

"Not now," he said crossly. "I haven't time to pick you up.”
Loretta Chase, Lord of Scoundrels

“I must be besotted,” he said evenly. “I have the imbecilic idea that you’re the prettiest girl I’ve ever seen. Except for your coiffure,” he added, with a disgusted glance at the coils and plumes and pearls. “That is ghastly.”

She scowled. “Your romantic effusions leave me breathless.”

“With the world securely in order, Dain was able to devote the leisurely bath time to editing his mental dictionary. He removed his wife from the general category labeled "Females" and gave her a section of her own.

Loretta Chase, Lord of Scoundrels
