Today is a great day for historical fans and audiobook readers. My first New York Times bestseller, IN MY WILDEST DREAMS, is out in audiobook with an all new cover from Brilliance Audio!
“Reminiscent of the classic movie Sabrina, this heartwarming Victorian-era treatment will please Christina Dodd’s many fans.” —Publishers Weekly
Throckmorton straightened his cravat. “So my dear brother, tell me about this mystery woman.”
Eagerly, Ellery recited her virtues. “Her hair is light brown with streaks of gold flowing like honey. Her teeth are white and even, like a string of the most precious pearls. She’s petite and curvy, like a marble Venus.” With his hands, he indicated the shapeliness of the young woman in question. “Her skin is like —”
“Yes!”Ellery smiled, his own alabaster teeth flashing.
“Of course.” Throckmorton rolled down his sleeves and re-pinned his cuffs. “I suppose her nipples are like two perfect rosebuds.”
Ellery’s brow puckered. He seldom comprehended Throckmorton’s jibes, possibly because no one except Throckmorton ever poked fun at him. One didn’t tease the golden boy. “I don’t know about her nipples.”
With heartfelt sincerity, Throckmorton said, “Thank God for that, at least.”
“Yet.” Ellery’s white teeth gleamed in a smile.
Perhaps Ellery did comprehend more than Throckmorton gave him credit for. But Ellery didn’t comprehend how important his betrothal to Hyacinth and her Indian plantations were to the family interests — and more than family interests — or he wouldn’t be babbling about some unfamiliar female guest with good teeth and rosebud nipples.
“Uh-oh.” Ellery headed for the sideboard and poured himself a grand amount of brandy. “I recognize that expression. It’s the I’m-the-Throckmorton-and-I-have-to-manage-everything expression.”
“Strange. I was thinking how fortunate that you’re seeking handsome young ladies for me.”
Arrested in the act of taking a drink, Ellery said, “Don’t be ridiculous. This one’s mine — although it wouldn’t hurt you to remarry, you know. Since Joanna’s death there hasn’t been a woman worthy of you, and you might not be so bloody grim if you stuck your finger in the jampot occasionally.”
Throckmorton had heard it before. “I’ll worry about my finger, you worry about yours.”
