A stunning cover for a classic tale. Can’t go wrong.
Seduction of a Duke (Love And Devotion Book 3) by J R Salisbury will release on the 11 of January in the Historical Romance (Victorian) genre.
You never know when cupids arrow is going to strike…
Lady Cora Keats, the only daughter of the Duke of Dover is not only beautiful, she’s confident, self-assured and sometimes a wee bit outspoken. She knows one day she’ll have to marry and settle down – her father constantly reminds her. Cora has other plans – she doesn’t want to marry…at least not now. She’s grown into an independent woman with an occupation few women dare pursue. She cannot…no she will not give up a successful business for a man. Not even if he’s an obscenely handsome duke who shares her interests.
Sebastian Steele, Duke of Hightower was sought after by all the eligible young women. Tall, muscular and stunningly good-looking, the former rake has quietly begun his search for a wife. Drawn by Lady Cora’s uniqueness and confidence he realizes through all their bickering there is something more lying beneath the surface.
Can these two opposites put aside their differences and work together for the greater good or will pride and stubbornness rule?
“Move your arse! Move your bloody arse!”
Sebastian Steele, Duke of Hightower watched in fascination at the young woman standing at the rail yelling and making a fool of herself. Fascinated because he’d never seen a woman get so animated about a horserace. It was undignified and certainly unbecoming of a lady. Where was her husband?
Though women did attend horse races with their husbands, they never behaved like this. She appeared to be a peer, well dressed and mannered, except for this outburst. Could it be her husband’s horse she was carrying on about?
She continued watching the race, cheering them on. In the sun red hues sparkled off her mahogany hair. She wore dark green dress with charcoal piping along with a peplum jacket and skirt. The collar hugged her chin and was trimmed with black lace. The jacket closed with small black buttons on the front.
He turned his attention from the dark-haired woman to the race, which was winding down. The horses were headed into the homestretch, and his own entry, Apollo’s Gold was proving once again to be a disappointment, holding at a good distance behind the winner. The stallion had shown great promise up until the last two races. Something was missing. He needed to send Apollo to someone who could salvage this horse’s future before he ruined it.
“Better luck next time,” Crispin Allgood, Earl of Yorkshire said, clasping him on the shoulder.

What is the hardest part of writing historical?
Making sure titles and forms of address are correct! You might think you have everything correct, but sometimes you learn a lot if you don’t. The next would be trying not to use today’s slang and try to stay true as much as possible to the era. Staying true to the time while also pleasing the reader is the most challenging. For true historical accuracy, there are certain mores, etiquette, and world views that must exist. Research and reading are critical. Today, it is easy to do research on the internet, and as previously said, research is the most important part of writing a historical romance book, especially for the historical part. After that, the plot and characters!
