In my historical romance debut, SEASON FOR TEMPTATION, a viscount seeks a marriage of convenience to help his family overcome a recent scandal. What he never expected to find was a most inconvenient love. 

These letters are exchanged by the hero and heroine, James and Julia, two months after their marriage at the end of SEASON FOR TEMPTATION. 

Letter from Julia, Viscountess Matheson, to James, Viscount Matheson, written the day after his missive to her. Folded inside a blank paper and left on the desk in his private study.

The Love Letter:

Dearest James,

The way to a woman’s heart is through her stomach, is that right? It’s certainly true for me, and has been so ever since we first met over a tea table. Though the way to my heart was also through laughter, and so I’m delighted that two of your gifts had to do with food, and one of them with unladylike speech. I’ve already read some of the little book you gave me, and I’m sure my face was redder than a coal as I learned that “tickle tail” and “arbor vitae” mean the same thing, and such an intriguing thing it is.

And now, a bit of an apology for spoiling your lovely surprise. You must be wondering why I didn’t eat up the plum pudding after dinner, but simply fell asleep in an undignified heap (is there any other sort? Not for me) in an armchair before the fire.

You might also be wondering why simply looking at the watercress sandwiches made me feel ill.

You are possibly wondering whether I have a gift for you in return?

Indeed I do. You know how efficient I like to be in household matters. Therefore I have one present for you, and it answers all the questions I have stated. But you can’t have it yet. Not for about seven more months.

I’m glad you’re so much more patient than I.

Your loving wife,


Check out James and Julia's love story in: 

Julia Herington is overjoyed when her stepsister, Louisa, becomes engaged—to a viscount, no less. Louisa’s only hesitation is living a life under the ton’s critical gaze. But with his wry wit and unconventional ideas, Julia feels James is perfect for Louisa. She can only hope to find a man like him for herself. Exactly like him, in fact… 

As the new Viscount Matheson, James wished to marry quickly and secure his title. Kind, intelligent Louisa seemed a suitable bride… Until he met her stepsister. Julia is impetuous—and irresistible. Pledged to one sister, yet captivated by another, what is he to do? As Christmas and the whirl of the London season approach, James may be caught in a most scandalous conundrum, one that only true love, a bit of spiritous punch—and a twist of fate—will solve…
