Second Chance Marquess
by Jessica Jefferson


GENRE: Historical Romance



When Wilhemina Turner’s younger sister runs off with a young Lothario, she has no choice but to turn to the notorious rake who broke his promise and her heart, for assistance. George Bartlett, the Marquess of Chesterton, hasn’t forgotten the woman who hurt him so many years ago, but can’t deny her request, knowing that his brother’s reputation, and fortune, is at risk. A series of misfortunes leave the straight-laced widow and committed bachelor stranded, sharing both close quarters and old secrets. But when morning comes, will this unlikely pair find a second chance at love?



He crossed his arms over his chest. “I’m sure you’re not here to rehash the past. Especially given the fact that you’ve been residing a few doors down from me for nearly half the month already and haven’t thought to make the effort before this.”
If she dared, she would have thought she detected resentment in his voice. “I’m here because Kitty deserves this chance, every opportunity that is afforded to her. Which is why I insist on coming with you. I won’t let anything jeopardize her future and rob her of her happiness.”
Like what happened to me, she finished silently.
“You don’t trust me?”
“Of course I don’t. I know too much about you.”
“And what exactly are you implying?”
“You’ll do anything to protect your family, you always have.”
“My brother’s future children will inherit the title one day, so I suppose that gives me a vested interest in his protection.”
She was confused. “What of your own children? Wouldn’t they be next in line?”
He chuckled. “Little chance of that ever happening. I’m not exactly the fatherly type. Which is why I’ll do what I must to protect him, the same as you would do for your sister.”
“Exactly. I know just what I’m capable of and just how far I’d go, which is why I won’t dare let you out of my sight.”
“If I promise to do what is best for her, will that put you at ease?”
“No,” she stated with finality. “You forget, I know firsthand just how little your promise is worth.”
His jaw tensed. “You never gave me the chance to prove myself.” He spoke with a derisive chill in his tone.



Jessica Jefferson makes her home in Almost-Chicago with her husband, two young daughters, French bulldog Lulu, and English bulldog Pete.  When she's not busy trying to find middle-ground between being a modern career woman and Suzy-Homemaker, she loves to watch "Real Housewives of [insert city here]" and performing unnecessary improvements to her home and property.

Jessica writes Regency-era historical romance with a modern twist where she invites her readers to fall in love with romance again.
