These covers are from my previously published series on sexy, pointed eared elves. I'm waiting for the cover on the last book, and will post it when I get it. For now it's titled Redemptive PursuitThis finishes the eight books in this series about sexy, pointed-eared elves. I'm now in the process of writing a book for Xmas. It's about a handsome marquis who was engaged at birth to a girl he thinks isn't good enough for him. He really doubts any female is good enough for him. When he rejects her and declares himself free, he sets in motion a scenario he'd not envisioned.
Here's an excerpt. Unfinished and unedited, but fun to write. Tentative title, Unrepentant Marquis,
"Jason Anders Dennison, twelfth earl of Derbyshire and soon to be Marquis Allenham, was well aware he was special. Now seventeen, his father lay dying in his bedroom. Jason sat in the study, more delighted than not that he’d soon be a Marquis. Jad would not long mourn his father. He’d never forgiven him for the harsh punishment, beating after beating, when Jad had been discovered at thirteen with a buxom housemaid riding his morning erection to their mutual delight. His upright, religious father had been completely horrified.
The accommodating maid had been dismissed, which Jad resented even more. However, the other maids had already had reports that Jad was unusually well-endowed, and enough of them managed to find him in the middle of the night that Jad had not suffered sexual deprivation.
He was well aware he was one hell of a fellow.
Certainly he was far too good for the little girl who was his fiancée. He’d seen her when compelled to attend her birthday party three years before. Affianced at her birth, she was then seven and hanging on his every word. While he’d felt it only proper that she worship him, he’d not been impressed by her thin, gangly frame, her awkward motions, and unremarkable features. True, she had amazing eyes. Brown with flecks of gold that seemed to dance, as well as extravagant lashes. Still, he was now in much demand for his impressive build and handsome face as well as his title. Before too long, when his grandfather died, he’d be a Duke. Yes, he was much too good for nondescript little Amanda Vandersham.
It was completely ungentlemanly, but he had the social standing to pull it off. He negated their engagement, and declared himself no longer betrothed."
Do you think this is a good beginning.? At this point nothing is definite and I'd love your opinion!!!!
