If you haven’t already guessed it, Sir Toby the Clueless is not the hero of this book.

So Lucy learns that Toby is on the verge of proposing to Sophia Hathaway. Lucy is desperate. She can’t possibly compete with Sophia’s beauty, elegance, or dowry. She doesn’t have time for a subtle campaign — she needs to bag her quarry, and fast. Seduction is her weapon, and Toby is the target. There’s just one problem. Lucy’s aim is off. She kisses the wrong man. And that man – much as he did not want to be kissed in the first place – is suddenly strongly displeased with the idea of Lucy kissing anyone else.

Which man, you ask? Oh, I’m so glad you asked.

There are four men in this book. One is Henry, Lucy’s brother. Another is Sir Toby the Clueless. That leaves Henry’s two other friends – Felix and Jeremy.

Felix is short and portly, with red hair. He is modestly wealthy. He is not titled. He is slightly dim, but perpetually jolly. He loves a good laugh. Lucy has always been his partner-in-crime.

Jeremy is tall and well-built, with black hair. He is insanely wealthy. He is an earl. He is intelligent, but perpetually reserved. He rarely cracks a smile. Lucy has always been the bane of his existence.

Okay, guess away.

What? You can’t possibly tell? Okay, hints.
Hint #1 – The hero is always the most wealthy, highest ranking man in the room. (Or, in this case, in the woods.) He’s also always the tallest.
Hint #2 – Felix is married.

Still stumped? Oh, no. You can’t pull it out of me. You’ll have to wait until tomorrow, when I post an excerpt on my website.

    Oooooohhhhh, you had me at tall, dark and insanely wealthy. Jeremy is my man. I love that she has been the bane of his existence. I think Eve, we might enjoy the same kind of hero and heroine. I CAN NOT WAIT TO READ THIS ONE! Hurry and get thee to print!

    Jeremy seems a wise choice. And everyone knows Felix is a naughty cat. 🙂

    Well, since I don’t think you’re pioneering the historical Mormon romance genre *wink* I pick bachelor number two…

    Mmm, the only thing better than a heroine who wants is a heroine who doesn’t know what she wants!

    But Felix is married? I was so hoping Henry & friends were the set-up for a 4-book series. Maybe you should give some thought to this historical Mormon romance idea…

    Oh, I can’t put anything past you lot. Jeremy it is. A

    nd Lindsey, I do have a 3-part series in mind – but it’s the goddesses, not the guys, who are (rather loosely) interlinked.
