Compromising Charis

Charis has been sent to the country while her family and the ton get over the scandal she created when she was in a bed naked with a young man. After being in the country for three years, she's told to come to her aunt’s house. Her aunt tells Charis that she has a wedding proposal for her and she will accept it or else lose the horses she loves. Charis decides to run away to her gypsy friends instead of getting married to a lackwit as she calls him. While walking down the driveway, she runs into a man who is working on his carriage. His name is St. John Reynolds; he pronounces his first name as Sinjun. Sinjun gives Charis a ride and they hatch a plan to debauch Charis some more so she will not have to marry anybody. They do but Sinjun has a surprise for Charis.

Book Blurb for Compromising Charis

Charis Forbes-Wilkinson is ruined! At least in the critical eyes of Regency Society. And she is quite content with that state of affairs. Who needs a husband anyway? Unfortunately, an unsolicited offer of marriage appears, sending Charis fleeing into the countryside to meet with a completely unacceptable friend of hers – a gypsy girl.

Fate intervenes, however, in the form of one Sinjun Randall, who is idly tooling his phaeton down the same country lane as Charis. He’s enchanted and she’s fascinated by his handsome smile and easy ways. Finally accepting his offer of a ride – completely outrageous in and of itself – Charis makes her own suggestion. And it’s far more outrageous than a simple carriage trip.

Sinjun agrees without hesitation. He’s found himself entwined in her plans, willing to assist her in her total ruination and completely lost in her expressive eyes. Their passionate interlude completes Charis’s ruination. But rather than ending her future, it marks the beginning of a new and unexpected love…

To My Readers: There’s something about the Regency! Maybe it’s the gowns, or the amazing social changes that were taking place – or maybe it’s just the lure of London when it sparkled with the Ton! As far back as I can remember, I’ve adored that time period and to be writing my own Regency romances is a joy and a challenge. Traveling to Almacks, riding country lanes in a phaeton, or attending a summer party at a magnificent estate – there’s nothing quite like the Regency for fun and romance.
