Eve was a handful.
She had a temper that could spook a cavalry horse, and she had never been tamed.
Until her father’s marriage brought a new stepmother and her son into the house. Theo wouldn’t be around for long. Officers in Her Majesty’s Royal Navy rarely were. They came and went with the trade winds. One month. That’s all they have… for now.
A man of self-control and order, Theo knows how to battle insubordination on board a sailing vessel. But Eve? Her defiance has her teetering on the brink of mutiny, pushing at the boundaries of a any decent, Victorian lady. He finds himself on the ledge between brute and gentleman as he is tempted by the innocent young lady he shares a roof with. Her ferocity calls out to his inner beast, but that temper of hers will need the firm hand of a disciplinarian.
Eve also balances on a ledge – somewhere between childhood tantrums and the fire of womanhood. A father who insists on all the proprieties of graceful society, and a new man in her life who pushes her to be a special brand of lady. The kid gloves and sewing clubs of genteel parlors have never appealed to her rebellious streak, but what Theo desires in a lady? His passions are a temptation she is irresistibly drawn to.
Is it the heavy hand or the gentle touch which draws in An Officer’s Lady?
Who will tame whom in this Victorian Era battle of the wills?
A stand alone novella with a strong lady, a passionate man, and a happily ever after.
