Sealed With a Kiss Event with Lenora Bell


Award-winning author Lenora Bell grew up in a small Alaskan town by the ocean that still has no traffic lights or fast food. Those long Alaskan winters made her a lifelong book lover. In 2014 she won the Romance Writers of America’s prestigious Golden Heart® Award for Best Historical. That manuscript became her first published Regency romance novel, How The Duke Was Won, which just received a nomination for Best First Historical by RT Book Reviews.

She currently lives in the Midwest with her carpenter husband and two naughty tiger-striped rescue kitties. 


In BLAME IT ON THE DUKE, Miss Alice Tombs and Lord Nicolas Hatherly agree to a marriage of convenience which will give Alice the freedom to travel, and Nick the means to keep his family estate. Nick is a hedonistic rake who will never fall in love because he knows that madness will claim him one day…as it claimed his father, the duke. Alice is a sensible, scholarly type of lady who is focused on translating an ancient Sanskrit manuscript she found in her late uncle’s library. There’s nothing remotely romantic about their arrangement. No gazing into each other’s eyes. No vows of eternal love. And certainly no sharing a bedchamber (after the requisite consummation, of course). They vow to follow the plan and honor the terms of their agreement…but somehow their hearts keep getting in the way.


Check out Nick and Alice's love story in Blame it on the Duke.



Have you heard?
The future Duke of Barrington has just been gambled away by his father. To an heiress!
The delicious details thus far...

Nicolas, Lord Hatherly, never intended to marry—nor add to the “mad” Hatherly line—but now he must honor his father’s debt to a social-climbing merchant or lose the family estate.

A notoriously wild marquess, won by her father at a game of cards, is the very last thing Miss Alice Tombs wants. She’s spent the last three seasons repelling suitors in spectacular fashion so she’d be at liberty to explore the world. She’ll just have to drive this one away as well.

Until Nick proposes an utterly tempting arrangement: one summer together to prove the legitimacy of their union, then Alice is free to travel while Nick revels in the time he has left before the Hatherly Madness takes hold.

It will be easy to walk away after a few months of make-believe wedded bliss—won’t it? Alice and Nick are about to find out...one sultry night at a time.
This ought to be fun . . .
