“I had last-minute changes to make to my bookfile after I had already submitted my final file, so I really appreciate that Anna accepted a new file. I was also impressed with the turn time on the project – much quicker than I was led to believe when I started.”

Having just inherited a viscountcy, George Bennett-Jones knows he must find a bride, preferably the daughter of an aristocrat; his mistress insists on it. Through a series of lessons, she instructs George on the finer points of meeting and pleasing a woman. When George spies Lady Elizabeth Carlington dancing with the Earl of Trenton, it’s love at first sight. But the auburn-haired beauty is quite sure the Earl will offer for her hand, and she has every intention of accepting; even if his kiss has left her feeling as if she was kissed by her best friend’s dog! When Elizabeth mentions the unfortunate kiss during the ball’s supper, George implies there is an art to kissing, innocently offering to replace her poor first impression with a proper kiss. Intrigued, and unaware that George is a viscount and a secret patron of her charity, Elizabeth accepts his offer at the next ball. George is more than happy to accommodate her. His kiss has the daughter of a marquess so stunned, so amazed and so aroused, she requests that he demonstrate the pleasures that can be had in a marriage bed. Knowing he has only one night to court the woman who has captured his heart, George sets out to prove himself while promising he will leave her virtue intact. Will the evening of pleasure he has planned for Elizabeth convince her to accept his hand in marriage? Or simply leave her with a vivid memory of what she will be missing should she accept the earl’s marriage proposal? The lessons of a mistress prove invaluable in The Kiss of a Viscount.
