Musa Publishing is happy to announce MARISA’S CHOICE by Kadee McDonald released today and is the perfect addition to the Aurora Regency line.
Marisa Landon agrees to a whirlwind London Season because it seems to be the only way to prove to William Wycliffe that their lifelong friendship can turn into something more. She has loved Will since she was only fourteen. Now that she’s grown up and he’s returned from the war, she’s more determined than ever to make him her own.
But first, Marisa must deal with her step-father’s attempt to engage her to an eccentric viscount and the unexpected attentions of Will’s best friend, a charming young earl who can offer her wealth and status.
What will Marisa choose to do if Will won't offer for her?
It was an innocent enough remark, Will decided, as he made his way to St. James’s Street and White’s for dinner and a game of cards or dice. Since Brummell had removed to the Continent and Lord Alvanley had taken his place at the table in front of the bow window, the club had taken on a sedate feeling, but tonight Will was glad for it. He chose a secluded table in the back where he could be alone with his thoughts.
Only his thoughts were far from innocent, and well he knew it.
I spoke only the truth but how could I not have noticed before that Marisa has grown so damned pretty?
Just a week earlier, when he had chastised her and made her cry, he had felt a pang of regret deeper than when he had been forced to kill a French sentry the night before the deciding contest at Waterloo began. But that man was a soldier, just like he was, and had known the risks of the battlefield. Marisa was just a girl, after all, and—
He stopped there with a whispered curse, rattling the table top with a bang of his fist.
“I am most sorry, sir. I shall bring another serving at once!”
“What?” Confused, Will watched the waiter hastily remove a platter laden with a thick slice of sizzling beef and a portion of roasted potatoes which Will did not recall ordering. “No, leave it. It will do.”
“Yes, sir,” the man set the dish back in front of him. “If you are certain?”
“Bentley,” Will picked up his knife and fork and attacked the meat with a sigh of exasperation. “I assure you, I am far from certain of damned near anything these days.”
Kadee McDonald grew up in the heat and humidity of the Texas Gulf Coast, but often dreamed of the cool elegance of the early-19th century London ballrooms that she read about in Regency romances. She decided to put her dreams on paper (well, at least on the computer screen), and the result is her first release from Musa, a traditional Regency novel, MARISA’S CHOICE.
