Meanwhile, look for the ENGAGED IN PASSION e-book, out soon! And while you wait, be sure and check out all of our other great original stories in our short-story collection!

In Jade Lee’s new Bridal Favors historical novella Engaged in Passion, heiress Francine Richards discovers just what happens when you fall in love with the entirely wrong guy. Francine is an heiress—a very, very wealthy heiress—from a merchant family. In order to enter the top tier of Society, she needs a title, which can only be obtained through marriage. And luckily she’s got enough money for impoverished aristocrats to ignore her lower breeding. So does Francine snare a duke? Or a viscount, at least?

Oh, I love it when the heroine is all awkward and is wearing a dreadful gown! Plus that she has a secret passion for baking.
And that she makes it very clear what she wants from Anthony. Sigh.

Part one of Engaged In Passion sounds really good. The ending gave you just enough heat to keep me coming back for more. So can wait for the next installment....^_^.

I'm looking forward to part two. I too love the not quite a raving beauty heroine. So easy to identify with her -- and her baking. Thanks for posting this.

Jade,

What a refreshing chnage! I loved that both Francine and Anthony weren't of the aristocracy and will definatly be back to read Chapter 2 and 3! In just one chapter I feel like I already know the characters and can't wait to find out what happens next!

I loved this. I have a weakness for stories that featured non-noble protagonists. Can't wait to read part 2.

Francine and Anthony are wonderful characters and I can't wait to read more about them. I really enjoyed this first chapter and want to know how and why Francine was "nasty". Keep it up Jade! Regards from Down Under.

I really enjoyed this first part of the novella. I think it's great that Francine and Anthony are not titled aristocrats, it's always fun when plans to marry "up" go awry.

I love how Anthony was attracted to her sight unseen. And she appeared to be kitchen help. Anthony and Francine seem like 2 beautiful people who can find themselves through one another.

This starting sounds very romantic and breath-stealing. I could just imagine being Francine and having this interaction! Love that she is "plump" as not all of us are skinny-minies!

Off to read part 2!
