The virgin huntress

*Library Journal Best E-Book Romance**
All's Fair in Love and Abduction... 

Vesta Chambers who has been coddled and pampered since her mother's death, is preparing for her come-out, only to have her father return from London with a bride of his own! With her world turned upside down, Vesta accompanies her godmother to London, where she is smitten the instant she lays eyes on Captain Hewett DeVere of the Seventeenth Light Dragoons. 

Captain Hew DeVere, younger brother to Vesta’s godfather, Viscount Ludovic "The Devil" DeVere, has returned from the American war scarred, disillusioned, and looking forward to settling down to a quiet and respectable life. When Hew turns his eyes toward the widowed Diana, Vesta is prepared to take extreme measures to prove just how wrong he is. But, Hew didn't survive the worst of the war only to succumb to Vesta's wayward wiles. 

Proving the adage that opposites attract, this hilarious romantic romp pits a would-be huntress against a gallant hero in an epic war of wills.

Sample text:

"Took a faint, my sweet arse!" Polly mumbled. "You may have fooled the rest wi' yer damsel in distress act, but don't think to bamboozle ol' Polly." Vesta's lips twitched as she tamped down the impulse to giggle. "I saw that, missy! Ye can pretend all you like, but I know you hear me."

Vesta cracked one eye open. 

"I know 'twas a great shock when your papa brought a bride home, but the world don't turn on Lady Vesta Chambers's command. You've been far too indulged, and now you be making sheep's eyes at that Captain DeVere when anyone can see he's already taken with my lady."

"What would you know about anything?" Vesta wailed.

"I have eyes in my head, foolish child," said Polly.

"But he saved me, Polly! If I meant nothing to him, he wouldn't have cared. Don't you see?"

"'Tis you who be blind, missy. The captain is a gentleman of the first order and a war hero to boot. Can't ye see, the captain is not for a young chit like yerself. He's a man been to hell and back in the war and no likely to dally wi' some silly young miss."


"Aye!" said Polly. "Keep it up, and ye'll only make a fool of yerself and spoil any chance for a suitable young man."

"But I love him, Polly!"

"Pshaw! The frog in the well knows nothing of the great ocean."

Vesta scrunched her face. "Must you always speak in riddles?"

"Ye've been mollycoddled, missy, and can know nothing how the world works."

"But I do know love, Polly! I loved Captain Hew from the moment I saw him, and I just know I can make him love me too!"

"Humph!" Polly scoffed. "And the ass dreams of thistles too!"
