I’m tinkering with DRAWN TO THE EARL to make it a bit more…well, MORE. Sexier, wittier, sharper, and just generally snazzier.
Is “snazzier” a word?
Anyway, I think the tweaks are making it a really fun story. Here is a quick snippet of our hero and heroine from a masquerade.
“Cleopatra,” he greeted, bowing and holding a fist over his heart as a Roman might.
So they were to play roles. “Antony,” Maggie returned. “And here, me without my asp.”
He straightened and regarded her thoughtfully. “You are much too stubborn to choose death at your own hand, I believe.”
“But Antony killed himself first. Shall we try it and find out?” she said sweetly.
His mouth hitched. “How I have missed you, my dear Cleopatra.”
