Romance Novel Month: Miss Francie's Folly by Fran Baker


Romance Novel Month continues with Miss Francie's Folly by Fran Baker.


Three years ago Francie Hampton shocked the ton by jilting Sir Thomas Spencer at their bethrothal ball when she discovered that he kept several lightskirts. How dare Sir Thomas now ask to marry her sister! Gentle Mary should not be married to a proud, tyrannical rake. But Francie protested too much against the man who long ago had won her heart...though not her hand.

Excerpt:

"Have you been happy, Francie?"

Her mouth went dry, her pulse began racing wildly. It was as if the past three years had never happened and she was once again his darling Francie. Her head was bent, and she felt his warm breath stirring the wisps of hair on her neck.

"Of course I have," she answered.

The heat of his breath upon her neck increased, and a shiver coursed the length of her spine as his warm lips pressed into the softness of her neck. She let the delight of it overwhelm her for one brief, delicious moment.

"Oh, Francie, Francie," he whispered.

Her eyes closed as his finger lightly traced the line of her delicate cheek beside her defiant, upturned nose. He drew her against him and, as if possessing a will of its own, her head tilted back to meet his kiss.

Reviews:

"Miss Francie's Folly is a wonderful story of misbehavior in a society that stresses correct etiquette. The story is full of emotional scenes and untoward developments everyone who loves Regency romances will enjoy."
