Description

"Well-developed characters and an energetic storyline... wit, romance, banter, and steam... highly entertaining... Readers who love regency romance with wit and... unexpected twists, will not be disappointed." -D. Gosney, InD'tale Magazine

"I picked this book up to read before bed. The next thing I knew I was 62% into it and afraid to look at the clock to see just how late, well early into the morning, I had gone. I loved it and finished the rest of it well within a few more hours..." --Amazon reviewer, JMB Three Abductions and an Earl is a full length Steamy Regency romance novel and Book 1 in the Parvenues & Paramours series.

London-hating dreamer, Lydia Norwood, has failed spectacularly as a d butante. Now an encoretante whose family has lost a fortune, Lydia discovers that the beau monde is hard on a nouveau riche social climber, particularly one who is no longer riche and only wants to climb trees.

Lydia must stave off effrontery and conniving competitors long enough to make a good match, or else incur society's scorn by earning her own money. Falling for the unattainable Lord Aldley is a distraction she cannot afford. But they share such an enchanted history, how can her heart resist?

The tragically virtuous Earl of Aldley is tired of ambitious families hurling d butantes at his head, but cannot hide in France forever. He returns to London to seek out the mysterious tree-climbing girl who once saved him from a scheming chit, and finds more than he bargained for.

Abductions, seductions, trickery and injury all endanger Lydia, but Lord Aldley's heart is imperiled beyond rescue. He has only just found her; will he lose her forever to his enemy, his best friend, or his own dangerous mistake?


About the Author

Tessa Candle is a lawyer, world traveler, and author of rollicking historical regency romance. She also lays claim to the questionable distinction of being happily married to the descendant of a royal bastard. When she is not slaving over the production and release of another novel, or conducting research by reading salacious historical romances with heroines who refuse to be victims, she divides her time between gardening, video editing, traveling, and meeting the outrageous demands of her two highly entitled Samoyed dogs. As they are cute and inclined to think too well of themselves, Tessa surmises that they were probably dukes in a prior incarnation. Those wishing to remain apprised of the status on her patent for the Rogue-o-matic Self-ripping Bodice should subscribe to Tessa Candle Updates on her website (www.tessacandle.com).
