Last week I gave you some hot stuff from Nick and Carlisle, but this week let’s take a look at a pair of secondary characters who are slated to be the hero and heroine of the second book in the trilogy. Lea is a duke’s daughter with a limp. She had her horse shot out from under her saving Anthony’s life. The dead horse crushed her leg and of course, Anthony feels guilty. And of course, Lea doesn’t want him to. She just wants him to love her.
But all that comes later. Here the two are bantering at the ball that takes place prior to Nick and Carlisle’s assignation.
When they reached the lantern lit terrace, Leonora stopped while Nick led Carlisle down the steps into the shadowed garden. They disappeared around a hedge and Leonora turned on Anthony with the force of a hurricane.
“What the hell did you think you were doing, you bastard?” she asked him furiously.
Anthony leaned his hip against the low stone railing. “Lovely to see you again too, Leonora,” he murmured silkily.
Her magnificent breasts heaved beneath the pale green gauze and for a moment he thought that being cut to shreds by her tongue was worth it for that display alone.

I’m off to look at some houses. We offered for something late on Friday but since everything is in limbo over the weekend, we thought we get in one last look at the other homes in the canyon where we want to live. Happy Sunday!
