Yes! Thank you @eviedunsmore! Lady Lucie and Lord Ballentine, what a treat! I loved both of these characters in the first book and was so intrigued by Tristans comments about Lucie to Annabelle. I loved getting to learn more about them. Oh Tristan, I just adore that name. I love that we got to see their childhood and their animosity/curiosity happened so early.
I think the coincidence they find themselves in is exactly where he wants to be. He seems so pleased with himself. It just made me giggle and she was so foot stampingly angry. After he got past who he thought she was he was able to really woo this bluestocking suffragette outcast. Made me swoon. And wow the steamy tutorials 🔥🔥🔥. They had a VERY pleasant arrangement.
I am also absurdly happy that you created a heroine that didn’t have large breasts. I mean not all of us do have those lol. I loved Tristans delight in them that he didn’t care what they looked like he just wanted her, all of her.
I just love these books! Next we get some Hattie and Blackstone action! I mean can I get an ARC lol. Can I wait till September? Probably but the suspense! 🔥🔥

A lady must have money and an army of her own if she is to win a revolution – but first, she must pit her wits against the wiles of an irresistible rogue bent on wrecking her plans…and her heart.
Lady Lucie is fuming. She and her band of Oxford suffragists have finally scraped together enough capital to control one of London’s major publishing houses, with one purpose: to use it in a coup against Parliament. But who could have predicted that the one person standing between her and success is her old nemesis, Lord Ballentine? Or that he would be willing to hand over the reins for an outrageous price—a night in her bed.
Lucie tempts Tristan like no other woman, burning him up with her fierceness and determination every time they clash. But as their battle of wills and words fans the flames of long-smouldering devotion, the silver-tongued seducer runs the risk of becoming caught in his own snare.
As Lucie tries to out-manoeuvre Tristan in the boardroom and the bedchamber, she soon discovers there’s truth in what the poets say: all is fair in love and war…
