Miss Tamsin Tisdale believes herself to be completely unsuitable for London life. After a myriad of social mishaps, and the potential ruination of her family name, she’s shipped away to her cousin’s northern estate. Only after she comes to her senses will she be welcomed home.
Marcus Winston, the Duke of Grayson, has a lackluster reputation. The last in a dying line, he’s endured a protected life—rank with privilege, encumbered by isolation. After a brief encounter with rebellion, he learns the devastating consequences of his carelessness and willingly accepts living life from inside his gilded cage.
However, a chance meeting with the brazen Miss Tisdale gives Marc the opportunity to reinvent himself into the man he’s always dreamed of being. When his deception comes to light, and ghosts from both their pasts threaten to unravel the intimacy they’ve come to cherish, will either of them set their fears aside long enough to embrace love? Or will Miss Tisdale’s stubbornness divide them?
Interview with Jessica Jefferson:
Could you tell us more about your upcoming release?
My latest book in the Regency Blooms series, Taming Miss Tisdale, was recently released. Even though this is part of a series about sisters, each book can easily stand alone. Taming Miss Tisdale is your not-so-typical Duke meets hoyden story. Tamsin Tisdale is a feisty, red-head, determined to live by her own rules. She meets the reclusive Duke of Grayson, who decides to reinvent himself as the gentleman Mr. Winston. With his new identity, he is able to live the life he’s always wanted to live, but the truth eventually comes out and jeopardizes their relationship. It’s definitely different from the other regencies on the shelf, but still a fun story for those who love historical romance.
How would you describe your writing process?
What is in your top list of most memorable events since you started your career as a writer?
When my first book, Compromising Miss Tisdale, went to the top twenty for regency romance it was pictured next to Charlotte Bronte. I was in total shock and thought for the first time – I’m actually an author.
What’s next for Jessica Jefferson?
My third book in the series should come out this fall. This will be the story of Lilly, so we go back a few years in the timeline of the Tisdale girls. She’s an ugly duckling who grows into her own and this book has been my greatest joy to write.
Marc watched the faint outline come across the dense morning fog, becoming more discernible as it approached. The tall, thin figure was riding along at a perilous speed, given the morning’s lack of visibility. He thought perhaps it was some gangly young man misguided in the fog. It wouldn’t be the first time someone accidentally stumbled upon the vast property that made up his family’s immodest estate.
Then the fog parted in an almost biblical manner, revealing his gross inaccuracy.
Were those … breasts?
Marc closed his eyes and thought for a moment. Typically, women didn’t ride alone at such an hour and they certainly didn’t wander unexpectedly across his property. It’d been quite a while, his last birthday to be exact, since his last intimate encounter with a woman—a gift, compliments of St. Regis—so there was always the possibility that perhaps his half-drunk, sex-starved mind had conjured up the sensual image.
He shook his head, opened his eyes, and looked back again toward the horizon.
Yes, those were most certainly breasts.
And she was most definitely not a young man. The woman’s riding habit pulled taut against her body as she raced toward him. Her hair was blowing behind her—various hues of auburn and gold, like wild flames curling about in the wind. Then a decidedly feminine voice burst through the morning’s silence, interrupting his self-doubt.
“Oh, thank goodness I found you!”
This was no mirage. She was indeed very real.
And very loud.
