Excerpt from The Great Estate:
The Earl of Averford’s boots slammed the cobblestones with force, a somewhat jarring sensation considering the worn state of his soles. New boots, fine Italian leather. He should have known not to relent to such frippery, but for once he’d listened to his mother.

“A fine man needs fine clothes,” she’d said. “Delicately spun silks. The softest kidskin. Textures sensual to the touch. You want to impress Sophia with how much you’ve changed.”

A man could only change so much. He was a man of sport, not style. Good English boots could stand up to months of traipsing through wilderness. The foppish Italian riders had given out after a mere fortnight of pacing London’s streets.

In truth, he had done an extraordinary amount of pacing since leaving Thornbrook Park. He’d worn a crevice into the stone floors of his mother’s Italian palazzo. In London, he preferred to channel his pent-up frustrations into walking the streets instead of treading his Aubusson carpets threadbare. He had determined that he wouldn’t return to Sophia until he’d become a better man, a romantic man, someone who knew about paintings, music, literature, and the art of love. He aimed to show her that he cared about the very things that impressed her most, the finer things, and that she needn’t look any further for a skilled lover than their own boudoir. It had taken him years to understand that he had gone about being a husband all wrong. Only catching her in the arms of another man seemed to have the power to wake him to the reality that he’d failed her. Miserably.

Once he’d gotten over his anger, of course. His first reaction had been one of murderous rage, but one glance at his former estate manager, who had stumbled on the scene at the same moment, calmed him. Winthrop, a man shadowed by an act of rage for half his life, had learned to face any challenge with level-headed shrewdness. In that instant, Gabriel became determined to follow Winthrop’s stoic example. If Gabriel’s wife wanted to kiss another man, who was he to stop her? Killing her lover wouldn’t win her affection back to him.

Moments of Beauty by JB Heller ~ Cover Reveal and Giveaway

Moments of Beauty
J.B. Heller
Publication date: March 23rd 2017
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Ugly. It’s the only word to describe my upbringing. It drove my need to capture every moment of beauty I could find. A glimpse of a mother’s love. A feather floating in the breeze. A ray of sunshine emerging on a rainy day.  And then there was her, Eliza Quinn, she signified everything I didn’t deserve. She showed me more beauty than I ever thought possible. And I took it all, despite knowing I was going to leave her, and never come back.  Leaving her five years ago was my biggest mistake, and my greatest regret. Now I need to make amends. I thought leaving her was the hardest thing I’d ever have to do, but that was before I knew I had to win her back.Add to Goodreads
