Reading progress update: I've read 72%.
The Truth About Lord Stoneville (The Hellions of Halstead Hall) - Sabrina Jeffries

She reached up to cup his cheek with a disarming tenderness. “You don’t really want to marry—admit it. You never did.” “You don’t know what I want.” Catching her hand in his, he pressed a hard kiss into the palm. “I want you.” “But on your terms. I can’t accept those terms.” Tugging her hand from his, she wrapped her arms about her waist. “I think you should leave now. The servants will be stirring soon.” “Good. They’ll find us together, and then you’ll have no choice.” Mutiny shone in her face. “I always have a choice. But you did promise not to embarrass me in the future. Do you now mean to break that promise?” Shame rose in him, an emotion so foreign to him that he didn’t recognize it at first. It warred with the desperation rising in his chest at the thought that she really might not marry him.

 

 

I really like Maria, she really doesn't let Oliver get away with things.

IT TOOK EVERY ounce of Hetty’s will to hold her stern expression until she was certain Miss Butterfield was gone. Then she allowed a smile to break over her face. Strolling to the brandy decanter, she poured herself a healthy amount. The girl was perfect. Perfect! Draw a sword on him? Take him to task for implying that she was a whore? Then refuse any amount of money that was offered to betray him?

 

Haha! Well, Oliver has to get his scheming nature from somewhere!

I really hope Maria gives Oliver a hard time during their agreement. And he certainly wasn't expecting that sword, haha!

Puffy Shirt Bodice Ripper Buddy Read!
The Truth About Lord Stoneville - Sabrina Jeffries

Say that three times quickly! :D

 

WhiskeyintheJar and I were chatting about the wonderful, quirky world of historical bodice rippers, the only place that, in Whiskey's words: "can have these two scenes, impassioned talk involving lead up to American Revolutionary War and sexual purple prose consent issues, in the first 15% with its own certain je ne sais quoi." And I realized it's been way too long since I picked up one of these. So I proposed a buddy read, which Whiskey graciously accepted, and I went off to GR Listopia for some bodice ripping goodness. And behold, there's a list called - I kid you not - The Puffy Shirt. Because it's also not a bodice ripper if there's no puffy shirt half draped over the hero, right?

 

So, starting May 6th, we'll be reading The Truth About Lord Stoneville, by Sabrina Jeffries, and you're all invited to join in! Marriage will be faked, an innocent will be seduced, and a rake might be reformed! And shirts will, of course, be puffy.
