 The Rake’s Vow (Marriage by Bargain: Book 2)

20160709_The_Rakes_Vow

Thaddeus (Tad) Darkin, the Duke of Lambeth, used to be a rake.  In fact, before Lord Edon was scandalizing the Ton, Tad was the one everyone was talking about.  Many gentlemen secretly wished they had his charm with the ladies.  All reputable ladies were warned to stay as far from him as possible, which only made him all the more attractive.  Then, after a tragic event, he took a vow of celibacy, promising he would never be intimate with another lady again.  Over the years, this caused him to be the most sought-after single gentleman in all of London.  And even though he doesn’t want to marry, his steward left him in financial ruin, so whether he likes it or not, he must take a wife.

After being rejected by the gentleman she was hoping to marry, Miss Loretta Bachman is on a mission to save her reputation.  She needs to marry someone who will impress the prestigious ladies in her social circle.  So when she catches the leader of the group talking about the very handsome and hard-to-get Duke of Lambeth, she’s determined to get him to marry her.  All she needs is a little bargaining power, and fortunately for her, she happens to have the money he needs to save his estate.

When she learns of his vow to remain celibate, she agrees to keep away from his bed. After all, her only reason for marrying him is to secure her social standing in London, not to have a love match. All she asks is that he pretends to be deeply in love with her when they’re in public. That way she will succeed in impressing the Ton. But before long, the lines between what is pretend and what is real starts to blur, and it’s hard to decide how far to push the limits of their agreement.

   the-reclusive-earl-final-cover-2

Titled gentlemen are supposed to be perfect. Whether it be good looks, charm, or eloquent speech, everyone expects an earl to be refined in every way. And if the earl isn’t, he risks being shamed by the Ton. No one knows this better than Landon Tait, the Earl of Farewell, who’s been on the receiving end of the Ton’s gossip since he first made his appearance in London.

After the last Season, he vowed to stay as far from London as possible. But when his brother lands into serious trouble, he has no choice but to come to his aid. He tells himself he’ll make it quick. Just one evening and his brother will be free from trouble. Then he can return to his country estate to enjoy his life of solitude.

Miss Opal Beaufort is attending a ball when she overhears the snickers about a certain gentleman who was born with a lisp. Several ladies sneak to a private room to listen to him, and something in Opal snaps. She can’t stand the idea of someone being made the laughingstock of the Ton. But as soon as she intervenes on his behalf, a scandal ensues, and she finds herself unwittingly betrothed to him.

Now, Landon isn’t only forced to stay in London to face the ridicule of the Ton, but he also must deal with a beautiful wife who might find him as imperfect as he fears.

After a drunken stupor, Brandon Herman wakes up in a strange bed with snippets of what happened the night before running through his mind. After he realizes the forced wedding ceremony wasn’t a dream, his first instinct is to sneak away and pretend the whole thing never happened. But before he can do it, he gets a good look at the young woman he just married.

Not only is she scared and alone, but she is ready to give birth. Like it or not, his course is set. He cannot, in all good conscience, leave her in this condition. Having gone through the heartache of a divorce, he does not think he has the capacity within him to love again. He can, however, devote himself to caring for his new wife and her child, and he can do this best if they start their lives in a new territory where they can put the shadows of the past behind them.

As they travel westward to their new home, he can’t help but notice his new wife’s gentle spirit as she cares for him and her child. Even so, he must not let himself become vulnerable again because the last thing he wants is to be hurt again.

  1. I am so looking forward to reading your new books, I can hardly wait for you to finish with them. Thank you so much.

  2. I am waiting for “Wagon Trail Bride” more than the others. I have been dying to read Richard and Amanda’s story. I have read all the other “Larson” stories. When that one comes out, I will read it, then all the others in that series, again. I have read each of them twice already, but I do love your books. I will be buying each book, as they are available, as I do love your books, in general. When I get bored with other books, I go back and re-read an entire series of yours. I generally find that I actual don’t recall everything from the last time read, so I do get enjoyment re-reading your series.

    • I’m hoping to have “Wagon Trail Bride” out this year. Part of the hold up has been what Amanda has to go through in the book. It’s hard for me to hurt a character. Richard doesn’t hurt her. Someone else does. Richard is the one who steps in to rescue her. But I’ve really had to struggle with letting the story go in the direction it needs to. I’ve tried to come up with other scenarios that were better for her but none of them worked. I’m finally biting the bullet and letting the story develop as it needs to. The book has a happy ending, of course, and Richard will be good to Amanda. It’s just been hard getting through the bad to get to the good. I wish I could say more but I don’t want to spoil it. I will try to spend more time on it. I’d like to get the story completed. 😀

      Many thanks for the compliment. 😀 I’m very touched you keep reading my books. That means a lot to me.

  3. Love the Larson series and really waiting for His Convenient Wife 🙂

  4. Hi Ms. Nordin! I can’t get enough of Dave Larson and John Evans. I think I’ll seriously consider living in the prairie (and taking a bath only once a week, using cow chips when cooking, or yikes – even making do with an outhouse) if it means I get to be married with a man like them.

    P.S. This note is actually intended to coerce you into writing more books about them. I’ll happily read dozens of books that just feature Dave working on the farm, Mary cooking, and the two of them unwinding together. But if you’re too busy, I guess re-reading (for the third time — this month!) Eye of the Beholder and Loving Eliza is not too big a hardship. 😉

    • LOL I would love to go live in that time period. I know there’s a lot of comforts I’d have to give up, but I’d do it to be treated like heroines like Mary and Eliza.

      I’ve thought of doing a serial (like a TV mini-series or TV episodes) with Dave and Mary for shorter stories. I know some authors do stuff like TV Seasons and really make them long, but I would try to limit my series to 3-4 episodes and be done with it. I don’t like things to drag on forever. I have the beginning of an idea in my head but am not sure how I would proceed with it. That’s been the hold up on that idea.

    I am also anxiously awaiting Richard and Amanda’s story. I hope we hear more about Ma and Pa Larson in it as well. I reread the stories over and over and have delighted in reading some of the children’s stories ie Rachel, Issac and Emily. Please keep up the good works

    • I plan to get to Richard and Amanda’s story next year. I think I figured out why the first attempt at writing it didn’t work. I think I started it too early. I think what I need to do is start them out on the wagon trail instead of in New York. No matter how hard I tried, I just couldn’t transition them from New York to the trail. Hopefully by starting the book later, it’ll dislodge that weird writer’s block. 😀

      I’m glad you like the Larsons! I do plan to have Harriett Larson’s book out later this year. That one is His Convenient Wife. Now, that one was just fine where it started. 😀 So I expect no problems there.

    I love reading your books and so glad to finally read Richard and Amanda’s story. I am, however, wondering if you will continue with the Wild Hearts Series? Will you continue writing the Rancher’s Wife? Thank you!

    • I hope Richard and Amanda were worth the wait. 🙂 It was so hard to know what to do with those two. They were easy to work with once I knew what to do, but for the longest time, I had no idea where to go with the story.

      Unfortunately, I am so swamped with books, I don’t have the time to co-write another one, and Stephannie Beman wants to make it a 4 book series. I decided to let her take the rest of the series, so she’ll be writing The Rancher’s Wife and other books she has planned. She has some interesting twists and turns she has for that series. It’ll be fun to see where she takes things. 🙂 Here’s her site if you want to stay updated on the series or contact her about it: http://stephanniebeman.com

    Hi Ruth – I have always been an ardent Barbara Cartland reader and with that I’ve been hooked in Regency books. My problem is they are only releasing 3 books a month. I got tired of re-reading each book until the next 3 came out. So – I started looking around for another author to keep me happy in between the release of her books. What I found was another Regency author who writes books that I really love. In just a very short time I have read all of your Regency book series published to date. I absolutely LOVE the continuation of all the same characters with each book featuring a few characters to really get to know them. I am so happy I went looking for another authoress.
    Thank you.

    • Hi Cathi! Your comment means a lot to me. I wish I could convey how much this has touched me. And thank you for letting me know you enjoy the continuation I use in the series. I originally thought of dividing up the series with all different characters, but the whole thing with the book poor Lord Edon has to keep handing out and the drama at White’s between the gentlemen was too fun to give up. I plan to keep up with the continuation in the upcoming Regencies. I don’t think I’ll ever leave that particular world and the characters.

      Thank you, Cathi. Really, you’ve blessed me so much with your kind words. I wish I could adequately convey how touched I am. 🙂
