The Danger In Tempting An Earl
At The Kingsborough Ball
By: Sophie Barnes
Releasing July 29th, 2014
Lucien Marvaine never thought he was good enough for Katherine. As the younger son of an earl, he didn’t have a title or prospects. Then fate steps in and gives him a second chance, and this new Earl of Roxbury is determined to make the beautiful Kate his own . . . one touch . . . one kiss at a time.
Katherine never thought of herself as a temptress, certainly not with Lucien. Why, she’s known him almost all her life! Yet as she waltzes in Lucien’s arms at the Kingsborough Ball, she can’t help but be drawn to him. Has he always been this hard and masculine? And where did those dimples come from?

We shall accompany Lady Deerford together at the first available opportunity.” To her satisfaction, Lucien’s mouth dropped. A snicker brought her attention over to Louise who was looking terribly amused. “Heavens,” she croaked in an attempt to contain her laughter. “For a ‘couple’ who’s not a ‘couple’, you’re certainly having the most delightful quarrel.” Katherine bit her lip while a slow dread slipped along her limbs. If there was one subject she did not need her friend to broach at the moment it was the one they had recently been discussing. Thankfully, Lucien appeared to have taken no heed of Louise’s blatant remark and surprised Katherine instead by saying, “All talk of the lovely Lady Deerford aside, I was wondering if you would do me the honor of partnering with me for the next set.” Tilting her head, Katherine studied him for a moment. Ordinarily, his question shouldn’t have given her pause, except that in all the years she’d known him, he’d never once asked her to
