It’s always thrilling when pre-order links start to trickle in! And behind the scenes, this writer is still diligently editing HOW TO STEAL A SCOUNDREL’S HEART, submitting cover ideas to the art department (so fun!), and sending my editor the back cover blurb.
That’s when the magic really starts to happen. You see, Avon has a wonderful team of people who send the book title off to retailers, assign it an ISBN number, set up a print schedule as well as an on-sale date. They contact cover artists (who then create said cover with their own team of amazing people), juggle countless tasks… and all before the book is even finished.
They work their butts off to make dreams come true. And for that, and for so many other reasons, I am awed by them and feel blessed each and every day to have this opportunity to write for them, and to write for you. <3
So, from the bottom of my heart, thank you to the team at Avon Romance and thank you to all my readers. I truly appreciate you. <3
With that said, and without further ado, I give you the back cover blurb for HOW TO STEAL A SCOUNDREL’S HEART (on sale May 24, 2022).
HOW TO STEAL A SCOUNDREL’S HEART
Ruined debutante Prudence Thorogood lost everything when she was ousted from polite society, including her inheritance. Now, with nothing left to lose, she’s willing to do anything to take back her life… even if she has to steal it. Accepting the rakish Lord Savage’s offer to become his temporary mistress seems like the perfect solution to disguise her criminal intentions from the ton.
But her plan falters when she finds herself falling hopelessly in love with a man who could never love her in return. Which leaves Prue with only a short time to steal her inheritance and her scoundrel’s heart.
Leo Ramsgate, Marquess of Savage, has everything… except for a heart. That organ dried up long ago when his betrothed had betrayed him. After that, he vowed never to trust or love again. For companionship, he keeps a paramour and always ensures that their temporary arrangement is mutually satisfying.
But not one of these women has ever beguiled him the way the reserved Miss Thorogood has. Not one has ever made him want to break his own rules. Not one has ever tempted him to keep her… forever.
As with many things in life, there’s always room for improvement. So here is the “tweaked” (and hopefully final) version of the back cover blurb:
In USA Today bestselling author VIVIENNE LORRET’s latest steamy romance, a determined debutante discovers that making a deal with a notorious rake might just give her more than she ever bargained for…

Until she discovers that there’s more to this scoundrel than meets the eye.
