Sealed With a Kiss Event - Jayne Fresina


Jayne Fresina sprouted up in England, the youngest in a family of four daughters. Entertained by her father's colorful tales of growing up in the countryside, and surrounded by opinionated sisters - all with far more exciting lives than hers - she's always had inspiration for her beleaguered heroes and unstoppable heroines.

Places to find Jayne:
| Site | Facebook |


In my new Regency romance, "Miss Molly Robbins Designs a Seduction", the hero and heroine have a journey of ups and downs to travel before they can find a way to be together. Born into different worlds, the Earl and the plowman's daughter should never have noticed one another, but Fate stepped in. And then came Cupid.

Carver Danforthe, the Earl of Everscham, met Margaret "Molly" Robbins—shy country girl —when his bossy sister, Lady Mercy, plucked her out of the village where she grew up and brought her to London as a ladies maid and companion. Over the dozen years since, that once meek little girl, knick-named "Mouse" by the Earl, has grown up into a young woman of quiet determination and talent. As the story begins she has given up her post in the Earl's household, intent on becoming an independent woman of means. She plans to parlay her artistry, skills and connections into a fabulous career as a designer and dressmaker to the fine, fashionable ladies of London society. With a little help from her former master.

Carver has reluctantly invested some money into her business, primarily because she tricked him into it.

Or so he says.

She also tricked the Earl into signing a contract in which he promises "No Tomfollerie". (He hasn't bothered, yet, to correct her spelling.)

Well aware of Carver's reputation, the "Mouse" has no intention of falling prey to his notoriously seductive charms. All she wants from him is the money.

Or so she says.

Below is a sample of their letters and notes, as they tip-toe around new feelings in a relationship that is quickly changing. I hope they don't mind me sharing them with you!



















Well, that's the end of the sample. You will have to read between the lines to guess what he did to make Margaret the "Mouse" change her mind. Or, you could grab your copy of MISS MOLLY ROBBINS DESIGNS A SEDUCTION and find out!

Check out Molly and Danforth's love story in Miss Molly Robbins Designs a Seduction


She Designs Dresses for London's Leading Ladies

Molly Robbins is finally stepping into the spotlight. Her unique dress designs have caught the eye of London's elite. And if it means her own dress shop, proper Molly will make a deal with the devil himself—the notoriously naughty Earl of Everscham. But becoming his mistress is not a part of their arrangement. It's right there in the contract's fine print: No Tomfoolery.

He's an Expert at Taking Them Off

Carver Danforthe has a reputation for beautiful mistresses, cutting remarks, and shirking his responsibilities—not for indulging the ambitions of his sister's maid. He must have been drunk when he signed that blasted contract. The stubborn female may thing she's gotten the best of him, but what this situation calls for is a little hands-on negotiating...

  1. Awww Those were lovely letters Jayne! Carver can really be insistent, but I really love him for that.
    These letters will work well within the story if I were to read the book along with them right? That is what you said right?

  2. It's like an older version of text messages. Shorter letters. ;-)

  3. Hi Kipha - yes you could actually read those letters as you read the book! Yes, AquariuanDancer, I thought it would be fun to have a Regency-era "chat"!

  4. LOL. I was laughing while reading the letters. I need to read this book now. Carver is so persistent...he sure doesn't know when to give up. I love Molly though...she seems so determine in her career

  14. I love these letters! They showcase so many sides of Carver and it's obvious he's infatuated with Molly even though he doesn't yet realize this. I have a question though, since Molly isn't exactly "learned," after their HEA does Carver subtly or slowly help her to become more knowledgeable -- write better, etc.? Since she would be a countess, after all.

  17. Hi Jayne!

    I loved the excerpt and must admit that as soon as Margaret called the (Do-Nothing) Earl Danny instead I'm sure he did indeed do something!

    I love your books and they because they always make me laugh when I'm reading them and must admit my husband can't figure out why! So yes, there are some men as "dense" as poor Danforth!

    I always wondered which is harder for you to rite, the serious parts of your stories or the one's that make me laugh?

    Congratulation on the release of Miss Molly Robbins Designs a Seduction on February 4th!

    1. I think the serious parts are harder for me to write, Jeanne. I know it sounds funny, but although I write romance I'm not the worlds most "romantic" person, so I suppose the funnier parts are easier for me to write than the serious ones. I'm the sort of person who tends to cringe behind her hands at soppy moments in romantic movies!

  18. I'm loving these letters. This story looks really sweet. I can't wait to see how it ends.

  19. this is like the early version of texting! I love it when there's a bit of humor in the story!

  21. I love the time period the book is set in and I also love that they come from different walks of life. I know a relationship between them would be difficult and it makes a story all the more sweeter if they're able to overcome the obstacles that keep them apart.

    1. Absolutely! In real life they probably never would have spoken, but that's the fun of romance!

  35. Congratulations on the book. Did Molly also need speech lessons or wasthe hero's help confined to literacy?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi Kim! I think the Earl would help her out in many ways, but Molly is very detail orientated and a fast, clever pupil, so she could pick up a lot of things herself. She's also lived for twelve years in a fine household as lady's maid and companion to the Earl's sister, so she would have learned a more refined speech in that time. Lady's maids were usually expected to be well spoken :). Thanks for stopping by!
