Dear Readers, I'd like to introduce you to Fallon and Warrick, the characters in my upcoming If You Give a Rake a Ruby. Fallon is one of the notorious Three Diamonds, Regency England's most glamorous courtesans. She's the most mysterious of the three, and she wants to keep her past shrouded in secrecy. Warrick is a spy for the Crown, and he's been targeted by a vicious crime lord. Fallon has information Warrick needs, and he has no compunction about blackmailing her for it. They meet in her bedroom, when Fallon climbs into bed and finds Warrick already there.
I suppose I'm supposed to address you in some fancy way now that you're a duchess, but I'd have to find a book on the subject and study the forms of address, and I do not have time for such things tonight. You will not believe what occurred this evening. Or perhaps you will. When I climbed into bed—after a rather nasty encounter with Lord Kwirley (remind me to warn Lily to stay away from the viscount)—your husband's acquaintance, Warrick Fitzhugh, was already in my bed.
Uninvited, I might add!
I immediately asked him to leave, and he proceeded to blackmail me, the scoundrel! I do not know how he acquired the information he did. If I find the rat who told him, I will slit the man's throat! I may have to throttle Fitzhugh's before this is all over. The man vexes me to no end. I know you are happily ensconced in marital bliss, but if you emerge from your marital fog for a few brief moments, please tell Fitzhugh to stay away from me.
P.S. It might be best if you burn this after reading…
