The Ringmaster's Daughter - thread

Look who's having a sneak peek at an ARC of The Ringmaster's Daughter..

Synopsis:
1770’s London
The ringmaster’s daughter, Henrietta Hart, was born and raised around the stables of Foxhall  Gardens. Now her father is gravely ill, and their livelihood in danger. The Harts' only hope is to convince Foxhall’s new manager, Mr Wolfson, to let Hetty wield the ringmaster’s whip. Hetty finds herself drawn to the arrogant Wolfson but, despite their mutual attraction, he gives her an ultimatum: entertain as never before – or leave Foxhall.
 When the winsome Hetty defies society and performs in breeches, Wolfson’s stony heart is in danger. Loath as he is to admit it, Hetty has a way with horses…and men. Her audacity and determination awaken emotions long since suppressed.
But Hetty’s success in the ring threatens her future when she attracts the eye of the lascivious Lord Fordyce. The duke is determined, by fair means or foul, to possess Hetty as his mistress – and, as Wolfson’s feelings for Henrietta grow, disaster looms.

He's a bearded dragon, Scribbler. 
My son has one. I used to be anti any pet that didn't have fur - but now I'm totally smitten. Gravos has turned my son's bad behaviour around and is a real character. Don't get one on impulse though - reptiles are hard work and need a very regimented routinue - my son is going to be one tough parent when the time comes. 
Let's see if I can attach a pic....ah yes...see the adoration in that smile.

I'm more of a snake guy myself, but he's a little cracker (the reptile).

Thanks Grace, I'll try to make it as long as the bearded dragon comes too and gives a review!  Big Grin

My son has always wanted one, but is making do with two snakes and a tank of stick insects! Undecided

Good luck on the release!

RE: The Ringmaster's Daughter - thread

Thank you so much, Paula Jane. Beardy's are actually wonderful pets but need a lot more looking after than I anticipated - fortunately my son is totally dedicated.
I hope you can make it to the party.
Just a quick reminder for anyone that would like to attend that the launch party takes place later today (Saturday 1st Feb) starting at 6pm UK time and lasting until about 11pm at this address: https://www.facebook.com...
There are some awesome giveaway prizes - books not only by myself but by 8 other authors of historical romance or historical fiction. It will be a fun party so even if you pop in for nibbles and a glass of champers, you are very welcome.
