Our exclusive limited release of Jade Lee’s ENGAGED IN PASSION has ended! But don’t worry, there will be more short stories and novellas to come. 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? No. Francine falls in love with the ambitious, intelligent man who’s employed as her father’s bookkeeper. But luckily, Francine comes up with a plan...

I love this:
"I love the way you laugh when you are excited and the way you snort when you’re frustrated.”
And the self-assured mom who makes everything right.

I love this story! Made my day! I really could relate to her realizing her beauty. She had always been beautiful, she just needed someone to show her how to appreciate it. Great moral to the story! Thanks for sharing with us.

Thank you to Jade Lee for posting this free story so I could get a "taste" of your writing. Your way of writing romance is vibrant and bold, which is the way I like it!

Thank you-keep writing!

Thanks all! I'm glad you enjoyed it! And hopefully you'll preorder a copy of Wedded in Sin. Between you and me, this next novel is my favorite. It's basically Sherlock Holmes being knocked on his butt by love. I don't name him Sherlock, of course. But he's that kind of brainiac, and he just hasn't a clue what to do with Penny. So...hopefully you like my writing enough to check it out!

Infinitieh, I guess I just have a taste for the VERY dramatic in my heroines! And yes, Vivian, it remember eatting a large piece of cheesecake when I finished this novella! Glad you all liked it! And btw, you can still get the first novella (Engaged in Wickedness) free from my website. Or go straight to

Loved the story! Refreshing to read historicals without a Duke or Earl as the powerful hero. Enjoyed the characters - Mrs Richards definitely gets my vote! Now off to eat a choc fudge brownie and some icecream. Already a fan of Jade Lee books - this novella was good taster for more of the funny, sensual and engaging stories that Jade does so well.

Love the ending and mrs Richards *giggles* was awesome. My favorite was
“Yes, well, how was I to know you would be so dramatic? Really, Francine, I don’t know where you get it from.” Then she primly grabbed the fowling gun before departing from the room.
Love your story & Happy Midsummer Eve!

You go Mama!!! Way to look out for your daughter over your strong-willed husband. Sometimes these men just need someone to put them in their places for a change. And being able to shoot is definitely a plus!! I love this and will definitely look for more of your work.

I'm sad, I only got to read part 1 before it was taken down. When/where can I buy this as an ebook? I really want to read the rest as I was loving it!
