DEVIL IN THE MAKING: Devilish Vignette#1
**A prequel to the award-winning Devil DeVere series**
A rebellious young nobleman's prank with the king's lion goes comically awry in this bawdy Georgian era romp.
Every devil has a beginning...
From the outset of young Lord DeVere's arrival at Westminster School, his scandalous family secrets set him apart from the other aristocratic scions as an "untouchable." Akin to a dark shadow following him, the ugly truth remained that his mother was indeed the biggest whore in England, and his presumed father was no less than a pox-ridden madman.
Likewise, Simon Singleton's poetic proclivities had instantly made him the bullies' mark, and even Edward Chambers' great size had served as little deterrent for the upper classmen's taunts when accompanied by adolescent awkwardness and a broad North Country drawl.
By the end of the first form, however, the three young outcasts had forged an iron-clad bond that would maintain them through nearly six years. DeVere's finely honed shell of arrogance, Ned's increasing brawn, and Sin's rapier wit gave birth to an unholy triumvirate that would come to wreak perpetual and unchallenged havoc upon Westminster School…
A Note from the Author:
When I first conceived A WILD NIGHT'S BRIDE, a Georgian set, Hangover-inspired romantic comedy, I had no idea that one devilish secondary character would spawn an entire series, but Ludovic, Viscount DeVere, proved to be a dream come true. This larger than life character has captured the hearts of so many fans who have begged for more DeVere.So without further ado…. Here is how it all began….
The Devil DeVere Series Prequel #2
The Trouble with Sin … Is the devil within… Aspiring poet Simon "Sin" Singleton, has lived his life only for larks, laughter, and ladies of easy virtue, eluding defying, and flouting all manner of authority until his impetuous misdeeds finally catch up with him. Having lost his muse, his allowance, and even his friends by edict from a tyrannical father and puritanical mother, Simon is ready to drown himself in drink, until receiving an ingenious proposition that could change everything.
The wages of Sin is…...twenty-five percent of the net! It seems a fantasy come true when Simon is offered an independent income by combining his two great passions— poetry and lewd women —by writing poetry about lewd women! Unfortunately, maintaining anonymity may be much harder than he thought…
A VERY SHORT BUT SWEET CHRISTMAS STORY
SLOWLY UNWRAPPED, featuring Nikki and Wade from SLOW HAND, is a very short Christmas short (only 3 pages) that is guaranteed to bring some holiday cheer. I was inspired to write it two days ago, after eyeing a pink Santa hat while wandering down the aisles of my local Walgreens store the other day. (Yes, I bought the hat!)
SPOILER ALERT: Because it takes place the day after SLOW HAND ends, there is a bit of a spoiler. Having said that, everyone should already expect Wade and Nikki to get a happy ending!
