Excerpt Tour: Chasing the Other Tisdale (The Regency Blooms) by Jessica Jefferson #Giveaway

About Chasing the Other Tisday:

She’s the other sister…

Overshadowed by the beauty of her older sister, Lillian is better known as the other Tisdale; unremarkable and unsure how she will ever deliver on the promise of her family's name.

He’s a rake in need of reforming…

Will Colton leads a frivolous existence, embracing notoriety instead of managing his family’s fortune. Determined to forget his financial burden and his father’s growing resentment, he maintains a lifestyle dedicated to pleasure and self-indulgence. When Will is invited to the Tisdale estate for an extended holiday, he never expects to become friends with the forgettable Lillian. But when a family secret comes to light, he must choose between leaving London and protecting the honor of one woman or staying and risking the reputation of another.

Upon his return, Will finds the girl he left behind has come out of the shadows and into her own. Lillian’s finally the center of attention, and not all of it good. With his own reputation in tatters, can a reformed rake lure her out of the hands of London's bachelors and back into his own arms? Can he escape his past and reclaim her heart, or has he lost her forever?

Read an Exclusive Excerpt:

“Miss Lillian,” he said, breathless in between fits of hilarity. “You are an original. If you weren’t my best friend’s little sister, I’d steal a kiss from you right now.”

“You shouldn’t let that stop you,” she said quickly. The moment the words escaped her, she knew she should have regretted them. She should have wished to return them from whence they came and never think such thoughts again.

But ... she didn’t. She didn’t feel one iota of regret and God help her, she had meant every word.

His laughing died down. “Miss Lillian, I’m afraid I couldn’t do that-”

“You could,” she interjected. “I’d like to try it, once. And you’ve been so helpful thus far. I thought perhaps you wouldn’t mind obliging me this one little request ...”

How many opportunities like this would she ever have? She was no great beauty, so the chances of a man like William Colton ever paying her such attention again were slim. Sure, she’d end up married to a nice gentleman with modest good-looks, her dowry guaranteed that much. But she knew without a doubt that whomever she ended up with would never be able to hold a candle to the man in front of her now. It was completely nonsensical what she was asking, but she simply couldn’t allow a little thing like female modesty get in the way of sharing a kiss with an utterly delicious rake like Mr. Colton.

He arched one eyebrow. “Do you know what you’re asking?”

“It’s the medicine talking,” she said quickly, blatantly shifting the culpability as if it would somehow render them both innocent of any wrongdoing. “I probably won’t remember a thing tomorrow. But for the moment, I’m afraid I’d like nothing more than to have my first kiss right here, right now.”

He stared at her, as if seriously contemplating actually going through with her absurd request. She watched as one corner of his mouth tipped up and he stood up from his chair. Unceremoniously, he crossed the narrow expanse of carpet that separated them.

He reached the side of the settee, then dropped down to his knees in front of her. His face was near hers now, his lips only inches away from hers. Their breath mingled together as he bent his head, closing the gap between them completely.
