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 and Jocelyn banter.

ENJOY THIS SNIPPET: 
"You look annoyed."

"A lady never cusses," she replied.

His lips tipped in amusement. "What else does a lady never do?"

"They never wear the same dress twice."

He pulled up a chair and sat in front of her. "I believe that." 


"And a lady never lies," she 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's funny. I wonder what will happen if she is in a situation where she has to wear the same dress twice, then that would mean that she lied but then she didn't say herself that she was a lady either. I think I'm going to enjoy this one.

  7. I had the same thought as Jennifer. The lady probably swears and lies. ;-)
