Young widow, Grace, Lady de Courtenay, is more concerned with improving her mind than finding another husband. But how was she to know that a close encounter with a rake at a masquerade ball would spark her interest and make her yearn for love again?
Lord Nicholas Lacey has been on his own for far too long after losing his wife in a tragic accident. After a rare trip to a masquerade, his attention is captivated by a lovely young woman. Considering the dubious company she keeps, perhaps she might be interested in becoming his mistress...
From the darkened paths of Vauxhall Gardens to a countryside estate called Hollystone Hall, Nicholas and Grace must set aside their differences in order to let love into their hearts. It will take more than a dose of holiday cheer to see these two on the road to finding their happily-ever-after and a kiss for charity may just be what they both need.
A Kiss for Charity first appeared in the Bluestocking Belles' 2016 box set, Holly and Hopeful Hearts. It's now available for individual sale. Bonus material includes several original pieces published on the Belles' blog the Teatime Tattler.
What an entertaining historical read. There are interesting characters to follow along as I journey through twists and turns to get to love. Good dialogue among the characters. Love the historical detail. Good read.
