How To Woo…A Reluctant Bride—Lyndi Lamont

A marriage of convenience, nothing more…until darkly handsome Evan Channing and demure Lydia Blatchford meet. The rules are simple for such an arrangement. No expectations, no illusions of anything more. But the rules are about to change…

Excerpt from How To Woo…A Reluctant Bride—Lyndi Lamont, steamy Victorian romance:

She licked her lips then plunged ahead. “I know how these things work. Arranged marriages, that is. I won’t expect fidelity from you.”

His shocked expression surprised her. “Is that what you think, Lydia? That I’m marrying you with the intention of cheating on you?”

“Perhaps not now,” she said. “But in a few years… It’s not as if ours is a love match. I won’t cut up a fuss if you decide to take a mistress. As long as you are discreet.”

“How very… sophisticated of you,” he said, his tone dry enough to parch a desert.

She took a deep breath before continuing. “And once I’ve produced the requisite heir and spare, I assume I’ll be free to seek my pleasure elsewhere.”

The thunderous look on his face startled her and she stepped back.

“You will do no such thing,” he said fiercely, reaching for her. “Ours may not be a love match now, but I fully intend to see it turns into one.”

With that, he pulled her into his embrace, trapping her arms between them as his encircled her shoulders and waist.

Covering her mouth with his, he kissed her with a heady combination of passion and anger. Her resistance crumbled in the face of his onslaught. She clutched at his lapels and returned his kiss, even parting her lips when his tongue probed them. Overwhelmed by the sensations his lips provoked, she let her eyes drift shut as she clung to him.

When he let her go, he was still visibly upset. “There will be no more talk of infidelity. Have I made myself clear, Lydia?”


Here’s an interview with Lyndi…

Q: Who is your favorite author?

A: Mary Jo Putney. I love her historical romances and think I’ve read all of them.

Q: How do you describe your writing style? Use no more than two sentences.

A: I’d say formal but not flowery.

Q: Why should we read your book?

A: Well, since this is a boxed set, you’re getting a lot of bang for your buck minus one cent! Bundles are a great way to sample new authors.

Q: Have any of your characters been modeled after yourself?

I think there are bits of me in most of my female characters. Like Lydia in How To Woo… A Reluctant Bride, I was a bit of a wallflower when I was young, so it was fun to give her an eager groom and a happy ending.

Q: If you could exchange lives with any of your characters for a day which character would you choose and why?

A: Princess Ilona from Ilona’s Wolf: A Fairy Tale Romance. Ilona has magical powers, including telekinesis. That would come in handy when I leave my glasses or car keys on the other side of the room!

Q: What books have most influenced your life?

As a child, I loved Little Women by Louisa May Alcott and read it numerous times. Another book I loved is The Witch of Blackbird Pond. That’s the book that made me decide I wanted to write historical romance. Later, it was the works of Jane Austen.

Q: If you could select one book that you could rewrite and add your own unique twist on, which book would that be and why?

A: Forever Amber by Kathleen Winsor. I read it last year, and while the book was for the most part meticulously researched and rich in detail, I despised Amber. Not because she was sexually promiscuous but because she was a terrible person. I was hoping to see some kind of character arc as the book progressed, but she was still just as shallow and self-absorbed at the end as at the beginning, if not more so.

Q: Beatles or Monkees? Why?

A: The Beatles, because they were so creative and innovative, and their music will live forever. I liked the Monkees, but the group created and brought together by a recording studio, so not innovative at all.

Q: Who should play you in a film of your life?

A: Mayim Bialik (Amy Farrah Fowler on The Big Bang Theory)
