Happy Friday, everyone!
Today you get another excerpt from my novella Through the Library Door.
Meet Lord Nicholas Waring, gentleman, strong and dominant; yet running from London. Why?
Something was up. He could feel it for days. His mother was a wiry minx and was set on getting him married before the end of the season, which meant he would need to be engaged relatively quickly. As she had caught his father through less-than-noble means, he knew she would not be above doing the same to him. When his manservant came in with wide eyes earlier, he asked him what was up.
“My Lord,” Geer said respectfully. “You asked me to keep my ears open for anything going on. And well… there is definitely something going on.”
“Explain,” Nicholas said as he tied his cravat. Some fops had their servants dress them. He could bloody well dress himself.
“Jessie said that her mistress is hell bent on getting you married off and that she has some sort of plan for tonight to bring it about.”
As his fingers froze, he looked over at Greer. “And?”
His manservant gulped. “Something about catching you in a compromising position with Lady Carrington. And, my Lord, she sent Druthers out to get laudanum.”
Laudanum. His mouth drawn into a fine line, he glared into the mirror. “So, my mother means to drug me and then plant a woman in my bed? Lovely. I leave for the house now. Pack and follow me as soon as you can.”
Oooh, his mother is on a mission. If I were him, I would run too!

“Deep within the library there are secrets untold, hidden within the pages of the books it protects. Some say it is old magic, some say it is a curse, but they all say that once a generation, the door will open and the one who enters will live out the story in one of its novels.”
18 yr old Landria expects to spend a dull summer at her aunt and uncle’s house. That is until she stumbles upon a dusty, unused library and finds her way into the pages of an erotic novel. Attacked within moments of entering the story, she is rescued by the hero, Lord Nicholas Waring, who intrigues her more than she wishes. Once she finds herself back home she cannot forget him. When he follows her into her world and they fall in love, will they be forced apart by the words already written or can they rewrite their story?
Through the Library Door is the fourth Library Tale, but it is also the first in The Markham Library series.
Library Tales are tales involving erotica and libraries. Some involve BDSM, some do not. The first three are between 4,000-15,000 words.
The Markham Library series is about a private library belonging to the Markham family. Within this library the heroine or hero of each novella/novel finds her or himself thrust into the storyline of one of the novels it contains.
