Snippet Sunday: A Lady Never Lies, steampunk romance #snippetsunday



Hi all, I'm participating in the Weekend Warriors Snippet Sunday. This month, I'll be taking snippets from my steampunk romance, A Lady Never Lies. You can find the Weekend Warriors Snippet Sunday list at:







About this excerpt:  Richard gets to the heart of what's bothering Jocelyn.

ENJOY THIS SNIPPET: 
 She turned to face Richard and drew in a breath.


"My father's lawyer is traveling to Nottingham. He's probably already there. He's supposed to find my cousin, a man I had no idea existed, named Augustus Darling to advise him he's the heir to my father's title and ancestral estates."

"How can that be?" Surprise resonated in his voice.

Jocelyn explained to Richard what her father had told her about how the title and land had to pass to a male heir.

"I'm sorry," Richard said. 
BLURB: 


Jocelyn Dunkirk is not your typical Victorian lady. She dresses in leather, wears goggles and is not afraid to get a little grease under her fingernails. Gentlemen avoid her like a dirty rivet.

Richard Windsor, the Prince of Wales, travels through time to claim Jocelyn's heart, but if it isn't one challenge, it's another. He determines to be a constant, steady presence in her life, hoping to prove he'd make a worthy husband.


Jocelyn's facing a bucket full of problems. The Prime Minister wants her to assist in ending a coal strike before it cripples the nation while her father attempts to recover from a serious injury. Will Jocelyn's dedication to her country and family ruin the one chance she has at love?

  1. That would be quite a blow, if she hadn't been aware of this cousin and the inheritance rules before!
