A Lady Shunned by All…
Lady Viola Oberbrook only wanted to forget the ill-fated early morning duel that took the lives of two young, wealthy, promising men of the ton and sent her fleeing for her father’s country estate. Eight years later, she has her life in order: a fulfilling business, a few trusted friends, and no plans to return to London society. What she doesn’t expect is to come face to face with her past.
A Lord Betrayed by One…
Brock Spencer, Earl of Haversham, only wants vengeance. Recently returned from his military service to the King, his plans include repairing his family estate, finding a bride, and destroying the girl responsible for the untimely death of his twin brothers. What he doesn’t anticipate is falling in love with the only woman who should never be part of his future.
An Impossible Match, Destined to Be…
Character Name: Lord Haversham, Brock Spencer
Character Bio: 6’-2”, Brown eyes with dark hair. Age 32.
Brock returns from the horrors of the battlefield to nothing--an empty estate without family to surround him or horses to amuse him. As the oldest brother, he feels responsible as well--if he'd been there it would've been different. If he'd been a better brother, the twins would never have made the terrible decision they did.
But he's a hero and saved countless lives during the war, and it's so much easier to blame the woman who had been there and who had goaded his brothers into that bad decision.
Describe yourself. What is your worst and best quality?
Can they be the same thing? My need for justice is both my best and worst quality, or so my best friend, Harold, likes to point out.
What is the one thing you wish other people knew about you?
My family and lineage mean everything to me.
What are you most afraid of?
An eternity alone; no wife, no children, and an empty estate.
What do you want more than anything?
Retribution. And I will have it!
What is your relationship status?
I found it hard to maintain relationships while I was serving the King. I will say I am available, for the time being.
How would you describe your sense of fashion?
Fashion? I don the clothes my valet deems appropriate.
How much of a rebel are you?
I am no more the rebel than you, I suppose. I do what suits myself, whether others agree or not.
What do you considered to be your greatest achievement?
I have not attained what I want future generations of Havershams to honor me for.
What is it that you, most dislike?
Disloyalty. Your allegiance to something or someone is all you will be known for after you are gone.
What is your greatest regret?
Abandoning my father and brothers when they needed me most.
What is the quality you most like in a man? What is the quality you most like in a woman?
Man…woman…they are not both people and therefore the same, correct? Honesty. Sometimes all a person has to offer is their word, and if they fail to live up to their word, what is left? A dishonorable person without quality.
