Lorraine Heath Excerpt: The Viscount and the Vixen

Lorraine Heath

The Viscount and the Vixen by Lorraine Heath

Love begets madness. Viscount Locksley watched it happen to his father after his cherished wife’s death. But when his sire arranges to marry flame-haired fortune hunter Portia Gadstone, Locke is compelled to take drastic measures to stop the stunning beauty from taking advantage of the marquess. A marriage of mutual pleasure could be convenient, indeed . . . as long as inconvenient feelings don’t interfere.

Desperation forced Portia to agree to marry a madman. The arrangement will offer the protection she needs. Or so she believes until the marquess’s distractingly handsome son peruses the fine print . . .and takes his father’s place!

Now the sedate—and, more importantly, secure—union Portia planned has been tossed in favor of one simmering with wicked temptation and potential heartbreak. Because as she begins to fall for her devilishly seductive husband, her dark secrets surface and threaten to ruin them both—unless Locke is willing to risk all and open his heart to love.

Get a sneak peek at Lorraine Heath's The Viscount and the Vixen (available November 29, 2016) with an exclusive excerpt of a selected scene.

Locke glided his fingers down Portia’s arms, all the way to her fingertips, before going back up. I like your arms bared,” he said, his voice low, feral, deep. Don’t wear gloves in the future.”

Following dinner, she hadn’t put them back on. As much as she wanted to, she couldn’t quite regret it at that moment. It would be improper.”

A corner of his mouth hitched up, his eyes darkened. Before this night is done, you’ll learn that I enjoy a good many improper things. Turn around.”

Cowboys vs. Dukes: Comparing Western and Historical Heroes

The Gunslinger by Lorraine Heath

Today we're pleased to welcome author Lorraine Heath to Heroes and Heartbreakers. Lorraine's latest release, The Gunslinger, is a Western historical featuring a gunslinger who doesn't want to be anyone's hero! But Lorraine also writes Regency and Victorian Historials, so she's here to share some of the pros and cons of each type of hero. Thanks, Lorraine!

Thank you so much for having me here today at Heroes and Heartbreakers to discuss heroes.

I must admit that I find cowboys and Regency/Victorian gents equally sexy. They share a lot of common traits, but they are also very different.

What I love most about cowboys is that they are self-made men. Nothing is handed to them and they don’t expect anything to be. They work hard for what they acquire, whether it’s land, bounty, or a lady’s heart.

What I love most about Regency/Victorian heroes is that they have history behind them. They are usually old family, born into wealth and privilege. They don’t take their heritage for granted and they have an enormous amount of respect for duty and honor. Even when they are debauched, there is a keen understanding regarding their place in Society and what is expected of them.

[But what's expected is sometimes no fun...]
