Sample text:

Heat filled her cheeks as she rushed across the dock toward the ship she’d secured passage on. Pearla Montgomery wanted as much distance between her and England as she could possibly get. Had anyone ever experienced such monumental embarrassment?

“No. That honor only goes to me,” she muttered under her breath.

She had been so close to marrying Noah St. John, the Duke of Huntly. She’d fallen in love with him the moment she saw him. The hurt spilling out of his chocolate brown eyes...all she wanted to do was wrap him up in her arms and ease the pain away. Noah didn’t or, to be more accurate, couldn’t love her. She knew that, but she hoped in time he would at least come to care for her.
