Title: Loving Lady Lazuli by Shehanne Moore
Genre: Historical Romance
Published January 15th 2014
Length: 260 pages

Only one man in England can identify her. Unfortunately he’s living next door.

Ten years ago sixteen year old Sapphire, the greatest jewel thief England has ever known, ruined Lord Devorlane Hawley’s life. Now she’s dead and buried, all the respectable widow, Cassidy Armstrong, wants is the chance to prove who she really is.

But not only does her new neighbor believe he knows that exactly, he’s hell-bent on revenge. All he needs is the actual proof. So when he asks her to choose between being his mistress, or dangling on the end of a rope, only Sapphire can decide…

What’s left for a woman with nowhere left to go, but to stay exactly where she is?

And hope, that when it comes to neighbors, Devorlane Hawley won’t prove to be the one from hell.

Exclusive Excerpt: 

How could Cass fall though when Pearl was followed immediately by Ruby? Code red must have been flagged and, with such speed, Cass couldn’t possibly bolt after them. Someone was going to have to stand here and face him. Tightening her mouth, she dragged up her chin.

 “I heard what you said, Lord Hawley. Indeed, I think we all did that.”

His footstep echoed close beside her. “Dead, is he?”

What a stupid thing to say. Really, she had given Devorlane Hawley better credit for brains than that. Of course Gil was dead. Would he be lying there, wrapped in tablecloths, his legs tied in bolster covers she had taken from the linen cupboard, and fixed on with curtain tassels, if he wasn’t?

 “What do you think?”

Setting her foot on the spade, she pushed downward into the ground as if she cut with a cake knife that neat little section of earth. Something about the ancient rhythm of the action—thrust, lift throw, thrust, lift, throw—made her feel oddly calm and caused her blood to flow more surely, instead of stuttering in her veins fit to choke her, for all her breath misted the air in a constant stream.

Why stop, after all? To stop only made herself look guilty. She would be arrested. She would hang. There was always the chance that if she tried to make this look as if it was all perfectly normal, planned—why shouldn’t she bury Gil here—she just might get away with it, although she did not necessarily acknowledge that she would.

“Give me the spade.”

AUTHOR Bio and Links:

Shehanne Moore writes gritty, witty, historical romance, set wherever takes her fancy. What hasn’t she worked at while pursuing her dream of becoming a published author? Shehanne still lives in Scotland, with her husband Mr Shey. She has two daughters. When not writing intriguing historical romance, where goals and desires of sassy, unconventional heroines and ruthless men, mean worlds collide, she plays the odd musical instrument and loves what in any other country, would not be defined, as hill-walking.

Her second book featuring a hottie scottie, His Judas Bride was recently released.

  7. I LOL reading that burial scene. This book seems like it's a hoot as well as being gritty and dark. But then again I have what's known as "gallows humor" Hahahaha

  8. Elise-Maria, a bit (lot) of gallows humor. I thought I'd go for something sort of crazily gothic. The one thing I don't do is traditional!

  9. Thanks for the excerpt and the chance to win!
