When Wilhemina Turner’s younger sister runs off with a young Lothario, she has no choice but to turn to the notorious rake who broke his promise and her heart, for assistance. George Bartlett, the Marquess of Chesterton, hasn’t forgotten the woman who hurt him so many years ago, but can’t deny her request, knowing that his brother’s reputation, and fortune, is at risk. A series of misfortunes leave the straight-laced widow and committed bachelor stranded, sharing both close quarters and old secrets. But when morning comes, will this unlikely pair find a second chance at love?

Read an Exclusive Excerpt:

Second Chance Marquess by Jessica Jefferson
From Dragonblade Publishing
Excerpt 18

“Well, you were and continue to be marriage-averse.”
“That’s not even a word.” He rebuked.
“It is now.” She pointed her finger at him for emphasis.
He debated biting it, playfully of course.
“You run from marriage,” she slurred. “Why else would a man your age remain a bachelor?” The day’s events, and the contents of the flask, had finally taken its toll on her.
“My age?” He scoffed at the affront. “I’m not that old.”
“Well, you’re not that young either.”
“Marriage isn’t for everyone. I’m perfectly content where I am in my life.”
“I know,” she said. “You chose your path, and I chose mine. My marriage wasn’t based on love, but it served its purpose.”
He wanted to point out that the only reason he’d even set upon this path was because she pushed him toward it, but again, he knew when it was best to keep his mouth closed…most of the time. Still, it bothered him that she would purposely deprive herself of the very thing she’d fought with him so vehemently for – a loving marriage.
Willie yawned. “I do believe if I don’t get to bed soon, I’ll fall asleep in this very chair.”
“Don’t do that,” he warned. “You’ll wake with terrible back pain.”
She stood and walked to the bed, hesitating before crawling in. “Where will you sleep?”
His bed at home could comfortably sleep at least a half dozen individuals, though he’d never tried it himself. It was plush and warm and covered in silk sheets and down-filled comforters. He slept with no fewer than two pillows beneath his head and his mattress was the finest money could buy.
And at this very moment, he could think of nothing more enticing than the finger-thick straw filled mat in front of him, barely wide enough to accommodate two adults.
And it wasn’t out of sheer exhaustion either.
